1. "Covid-19 is dead now, and finally we can live without masks and can reunite with our friends and families" - how happy does this sounds? Everybody wishes to go back to normal, for that please wear your masks. #WearAMask
2. Today, this situation is really out of hands. Our whole generation is falling apart. We have lost hopes on our dreams, ambitions, studies, career and all we want to do is to SURVIVE. We want to live. We want to fight this so badly. #fightagainstcorona
3.We don't want to see our future getting destroyed right in front of our eyes because of this virus. Some of us might be thinking, do we even have a future? Yes, we do if we stay safe and follow all the protocols. It feels as we have aged, without actually ageing. #GenZ

So mucor is on the rise, time for a quick revision. A short thread for those interested.

It's a bad infection with an unreasonably high mortality(40-80%) which depends on the organ involved.

Risk factors: DM/ neutropenia/ HSCT

DM=rhino-orbital mucor
Neutropenia=pulmonary mucor
Mucormycosis is caused by fungi of order "MUCORALES" which includes rhizopus/mucor/licthemia/cunninghemela species. But DON'T WORRY species identification doesn't change treatment so we don't need to get to that.
Coming to the PRACTICAL POINTS that need to be remembered.

➡️IMAGING even at the slightest suspicion of mucor coz it's RAPIDLY PROGRESSIVE and kills quick.

➡️CT PNS/Orbits/ MRI Brain
➡️HRCT chest as per presentation

I am posted in COVID ICU for 12 hours (night shift).
This duty has been extremely brutal for a no. of reasons-
Seeing more young people die.
Have to restrain a lot of them as they're uncooperative or self extubate. They cry and beg us to remove the restrains but we can't
We're just jumping from 1 pt to another throughout the night as they deteriorate.
Staying in ICUs for so long have their own complications. So many pricks, procedures done on them everyday.
I don't know where to prick while taking an ABG sample cause their hands are thrombosed/ edematous.
I go at 8 pm and come back to my room at 9 am. Barely getting half an hour of sleep in between. Losing an average of 5-6 patients per shift (3)

Every person, every institution in #globalhealth is deeply indebted to people of S Asia, esp India, present and past. Acknowledge and honor it: speak up about the #COVIDSecondWaveInIndia and culpability of government and others who have failed them. What debt? I'll explain 1/n
Nearly every aspect of vaccination campaign knowledge has links to India. From first vax 219 years ago in then-Bombay to eradication, smallpox more about India than any other country, as @JoyAgnost has written. World has benefitted but knowledge came from colonial oppression 2/n
Note how 1805 painting applies racist lightening to Queen Devajammani's arm, showing one exercise of colonial biopower on reluctantly or unwillingly vaccinated people (see Chancellor, Mod Asian Stud 2001). Nearly all early major campaigns were in India 3/n

People living in their ivory towers have no idea of real Bharat.

37.7 million Indians are affected by water-borne diseases annually, 1.5 million children die of diarrhoea alone.

See this report from 2013

This is what we have been living with even seven decades after independence.

Why couldn’t successive governments think, plan and deliver such a basic thing like tap water when this man #modi is targeting the same in 4 years.

Covid has hit our homes and we are very vocal. Rightly so.

But think how would they have handled a pandemic of this scale that requires a response where we need to increase resources by 5-10 times in months because doubling or tripling will be GOOD but not ENOUGH.

Surely today, as Indians struggle desperately to save themselves; as Delhi HC has to cajole the Centre into ensuring oxygen reaches the capital; as infections & death tolls soar & the data fudging is clear; as a nationwide vaccine plan disappears; there has to be an awakening.
In the middle of the inferno that #COVIDSecondWaveInIndia , the Union Home Minister is going to address 3 public rallies. The day after that, your Prime Minister, this man who you revere like a God, is going to address 4. FOUR. PUBLIC. RALLIES. IN THE MIDDLE OF A GODDAMN PANDEMIC
This is not regrettable. This is not misguided. This is not even disgraceful. It is criminal.

Every political leader organising a rally at this time is a criminal. But given their responsibility to the nation, the actions of the Home Minister and the Prime Minister even more so

Interesting week for the art of political distraction.
#europesuperleague either fan-power or competition law would've halted the plan, but political speed to bank political capital was unprecedented. Compare with days it took for PM to react to violence in Northern Ireland
#Boris & his Govt's slow reaction to #COVIDSecondWaveInIndia #GreensillScandal why Defence Minister Johnny Mercer is being dismissed, @GoodLawProject discovery yesterday about #Torysleaze donor awarded a £100m #PPE contract & why his name why redacted…
#Boris needs to answer why Cruddas got a peerage despite cash-for-access scandal. Why he overrode his ethics adviser on @pritipatel bullying/breaking Ministerial Code. ?s on #ArcuriAffair & her business receiving public money. Why he missed the 1st 5 emergency #covid meetings

Lets try and learn some basics of the COVID-19 illness
So to understand what’s happening you need to understand the story behind it.

(A Thread)
80% people will have flu like sickness
Mild/Initial phase: presenting with anosmia (lack of smell), fever, cough, diarrhoea. This is something most people understand and is treated with Paracetamol and lots of water.
But beyond the is what we need to learn a bit more about
Basically in the illness people are fine mostly till d4 - d6,
but once the downhill journey begins you r counting each hour
Its a sudden steep downhill slope
Now why is that?

Therein lies the rub. It's the Allahabad High Court that has ordered the UP cities lockdown, given the magnitude of the crisis we could all see.
Then calling out the appalling amount of money spent on elections, and so little on healthcare. #thread #COVIDSecondWaveInIndia
And the Telangana High Court orders Govt take a call on weekend lockdown and curfew as well.
Lockdowns are the last resort when govts have failed at all other measures #COVIDSecondWaveInIndia
Delhi to go under lockdown .. Rajasthan under restrictions.
Maharashtra already has restrictions and now more expected.
Lockdowns the last step in the many measures to contain the spread of covid. We missed an opportunity to aggressively vaccinate when numbers were low. #COVID19

We need more studies on the double mutant strain found in India. Experts across the world have been asking for India to do more testing, research so we can know how infectious it is and vaccine impact.
Now it has been found in 10 countries. #covid #doublemutant
We knew about the double mutant strain since last year, only announced earlier this year. If we studied it more extensively, we could have anticipated the second wave better #COVIDSecondWaveInIndia #DoubleMutant

When people use phrases like '110%' it's immediately concerning.
So where is this 110% oxygen generation going? Why are we hearing complaints from various parts of country regarding oxygen shortage?
'24,000 Cases In Delhi Today, Short On Oxygen, Beds: Arvind Kejriwal'…
And if we're producing oxygen over and above capacity, then how are both Delhi and Mumbai facing oxygen shortage? Our biggest cities. #COVIDSecondWave
