We welcome Hon Governor @BSKoshyari ji's decision to recommend the ECI to conduct the election of the 9 vacant seats of Maharashtra Legislative Council expeditiously.
We are sure that the ECI, in consultation with Ministry of Home Affairs will take decision to take election ASAP.
This will prevent Maharashtra from going into instability in the testing times of #CoronaOutbreak &will also uphold the values of our Constitution.
It will also uphold the convention that a (MLC)member nominated by Hon Governor shouldn’t join the Cabinet(i.e become a CM/Minister)
Our best wishes are with Chief Minister!
This also underlines that in a democratic system, dialogue is of utmost importance.
One can achieve nothing by unwanted criticism on a person holding a Constitutional post.

The curious case of #Sweden

In contrast to other countries Sweden’s confinement measures against #SARS_COV_2 are softer. Their data are for some prove of irresponsible opportunism, for others that the rest overreacted.

Both are (for now) wrong. Long thread on data and nuance./1
Let’s start by debunking some “myths”:
1) and foremost, no, Sweden is not actively pursuing #Herd_Immunity as strategy.
According to Tegnell, Sweden’s state epidemiologist, herd immunity is a *potential* end state, not a potential response strategy.
So what is their strategy? /2
As in other countries their objectives are epidemic peak mitigation while having as little casualties as possible. Math models, as that of the Imperial College, showed millions of deaths if #corona is left unchecked (changing UK and US strategies)./3…

The world is celebrating the legacy & history of #Roma people. Their contribution to social advancement in #Europe is immeasurable.

Therefore, we should lift the barriers of #Antigypsyism in an act of solidarity.
@antonioguterres @UNHumanRights @ECRI_CoE Image
Understanding how racism is hitting minorities in different ways in #EU is key to understand how it make us all vulnerable against a crisis like #coronaoutbreak.

This is why ENAR & @ZR_SintiRoma published a book on dimensions of #antigypsyism.

“Step up human rights protection for Roma & guarantee their access to vital services during the #COVIDー19 pandemic” secretary general of the @coe @MarijaPBuric rightly demands in an joint statement with @helenadalli, #EU Commissioner for Equality.

Decades ago when healthcare workers used to go to door to door to immunize people against #Smallpox people used to run away, attack healthcare workers, deny getting immunised
When immunisation started for children parents were scared&had lot of questions
Same repeated now! 1/n
People are scared, they lack information they are not educated
When people lack information and education they will be scared or suffering 4m phobia
When people have insecurities they will be dependent on faith/babas r false prestige r some community/leader to boost their ego 2/n
Attack on healthcare workers is certainly condemnable and no excuses should be given to the culprits. But it's important to understand why they might have behaved like that.
Muslims are stereotyped, stigmatized now #CoronaOutbreak also used against them

SG Tushar Mehta has submitted a status report, detailing steps taken so far.
SG has emphasised on misinformation & fake news as one leading problem that create panic among people.

Judges favours criminal action against those spreading misinformation on #Corona. They add there must be official channel of communicating to the people.

Discussions are underway to release convicted murderer Duminda Silva as a part of general pardon disguised to release some prisoners due to Corona Virus outbreak. Namal Rajapaksa is taking the lead in the project under blessings of MR. @Hirunika_Premac #lka #lk
Duminda Silvas brother Rayynor Silva @RayynorSilva has met Namal multiple times to make arrangements to transfer money to bank accounts of Namal in Dubai and Seychelles. Meetings have happened secretly in Gower Street and Shangri-La.
Namals cousin Malaka Chandradasa @niner1alpha has arranged secret rooms in Shangri La hotel. Malaka is head of security for Gotabaya @GotabayaR but is now sidelined due to his alliances with Namal for underhand dealings to extort money from business owners in #Colombo

#AGR matter being heard by a bench led by Justice Arun Mishra: "Are we fools?" the judge asks SG Tushar Mehta while coming down heavily on the Govt for their proposal to reassess the dues owed by the telecom companies, incl #Vodafone & #Airtel |@News18Courtroom
"Do the DoT officers think they are superior to us? Are these companies untouchable? Everyone has been trying to influence us... Newspapers are having articles after articles but we won't budge," Mishra J goes ballistic. He asks DoT first fought tooth & nail but now dragging feet
#SupremeCourt makes it clear in its order taht there won't be any reassessment/ re-assessment of the #AGR dues. All telecom companies will have to pay the dues with interest & penalty, as ordered in the main judgment.

My condolences to my fellow compatriots, particularly in Aran, Bidgol, Yazd, Arak and Hamadan. I urge brave youth and the popular councils across #Iran to take the initiative in assisting those affected by the coronavirus in a national solidarity campaign #CoronaOutbreak
While observing all the necessary health precautions for themselves, they should rush to save the people of #Iran from coronavirus and the ruling mullahs #COVIDー19 #CoronaOutbreak
I urge the UN and the UN Security Council to immediately intervene to free prisoners, particularly those detained in the Greater Tehran Penitentiary (Fashafuyeh), where political prisoners are on hunger strike #CoronaOutbreak #Iran

I just superimposed Italy's #COVID19 case data onto ours here in the US. Take a look at this closely. We are following the EXACT SAME trajectory as Italy, just 10 days behind. 1/3
Italy instituted a lockdown on 03/09. For the US, this would be Thursday 03/19. However, Italy found out this was too late to effectively #FlattenTheCurve. If we are to change our path & dampen the effect of this crisis in the coming days, we might have to lockdown earlier. 2/3
In the absence of such a measure from the federal government, I urge all of you to not go out and stay indoors please. Remember, ~ 400 deaths in Italy today. We don't want to be there next week. #SocialDistancing TODAY will help save lives TOMORROW. 3/3 #CoronaOutbreak

"I am young & healthy, why should I stay isolated?" Here is your answer.

Thread 👇
Fig 1: In Italy (green), authorities only tested patients with symptoms & most were elderly folks.

In South Korea (red), broader testing identified MANY 20-29 year olds who were infected with COVID-19 and silently transmitting it to others.
S.Korea identified these silent transmitters & quarantined them in time to prevent the spread of the virus.

On the other hand, Italy, in the initial stages of the spread, did not push for social isolation of the young & symptomatic.

Peristiwa #CoronaOutBreak ini membuat saya jadi paham, kenapa ada hadist Nabi yang menyebutkan bahwa meninggal karena wabah, jika sabar, merupakan salah satu indikasi mati syahid. Dalam Islam, saat ada wabah harus ada isolasi, semacam lockdown. Kondisi lockdown ini berat!
Lockdown adalah salah satu bagian dari syariat Islam saat menangani wabah penyakit. Saat terjadi wabah di Madinah, Rasulullah melarang orang Madinah keluar, dan melarang orang luar Madinah masuk ke Madinah. Ini cara agar kuman tidak menyebar.
Tentu berat, berada dalam posisi yang terisolasi. Pasokan makanan bisa berkurang, nggak bisa kemana-mana, depresi, apalagi melihat korban-korban berjatuhan. Tapi itu jalan terbaik.

Collective sacrifice. A concept rarely asked of us as a society, but one being asked of us at this moment in time, as we face off against #COVIDー19 . Our initial response to this request (viewed through the admittedly skewed prism of social media) is underwhelming to the least.
We’ve all been told of the critical importance of slowing the spread of this disease, lest the healthcare system become overwhelmed and many more persons die. #bendthecurve, etc. We’ve been told the most effective way to do so is to practice...
#SocialDistancing. And to that end, we’ve cancelled concerts, conferences and numerous other venues in which the disease can most easily spread. School districts are closing, businesses are closing and untold amounts of people are working from home.

In my opinion the single best parameter that predicts longevity and improves #clinical outcome is #cardiopulmonary #fitness. #VO2Max is an easy way to quantify this. Having a ⬆️ #VO2max & a ⬆️#lactatethreshold could be the difference between life & death during #CoronaOutbreak
It could be the difference between requiring venilatory support and no ventilatory support during this #coronavirus #pandemic. So please who are #QuarantineAndChill please keep your physical activity up! Do some #tabata #HIIT
Lactate inflection point (LIP), is the exercise intensity at which the blood concentration of #lactate begins to increase exponentially. It can be improved significantly with regular exercise. #vo2max is the max rate of O2 consumption measured during incremental exercise.

“I don’t think my child will be prioritised when push comes to shove... he’s non verbal, he’s severely disabled. So many reasons to say ‘don’t bother with him’ “
Had so many 💔conversations with parents of children with disabilities today
Tomo @BBCBreakfast
Parents like @Danwhite1972 who cares 27/7 for his disabled wife & daughter “who’ll step in and help if I’m sick?”
Right now there are 120,000 vacancies in social care
Not enough for the people already in system
Parents like @hillsideliz Liz “I don’t know how he’ll cope when he can’t do the things he loves. When you struggle to make sense of the world & everything changes, the bottom falls out of your world. Change can make him distressed & distress can lead to crisis”
