"दिल्ली से आए लोगों ने बताया कि दिल्ली सरकार ने बिजली-पानी के कनेक्शन काट दिए। दिल्ली सरकार के अधिकारी बक़ायदा एनाउंसममेंट कर अफ़वाह फैलाते रहे कि यूपी बार्डर पर बसें खड़ी हैं, जो यूपी और बिहार ले जाएंगी।

सीएम योगी ने रात भर जाग कर 1000 से ज्यादा बसें की व्यवस्था कराई।"
Wow !!

Scenes at the Delhi-UP border today. Complete failure of State and Central administrations, to not have foreseen this, to not doing anything about this.

Suffice it to say that lockdown would begin in earnest after a week. #CoronvirusLockdown.
Every large State is grappling with reverse migration. Care for migrant labour should be the priority right now. Close coordination between States is a must.

We need to accept the fact that the real lockdown would begin after a week. #CoronavirusLockdown
I may have what one'd call legitimate excuse but the fact is, that when I accuse the governments of not foreseeing the unprecedented reverse migration, I, too, did not foresee it. I don't know how many of you did but I did not. I own up. I am sorry.

Stocking up due to #lockdown21?
Here are a few tips that will help you survive the lockdown.
1. Stock up on basic, nutrient-dense foods

Keep rajma (kidney beans) and chana (chickpeas) handy. “If nothing else, these can always be made into a chaat, as a snack."…
2. Some must have masalas:

Powdered haldi (turmeric), dhaniya (coriander), jeera (cumin), mirchi (chilli) and hing (asafoetida), as well as whole mustard and whole jeera.…

The Charts in here are shocking - Coronavirus Deaths by U.S. State and Country Over Time: Daily Tracker - The New York Times…
As I lay in bed recovering from my near heart attack from #COVID2019 - I wanted to share some charts from @nytimes to illustrate what’s going on. First is a chart of the rate of deaths by country - the USA is doubling every 3 days
Second, the growth rate of new reported deaths is rising only in the USA at this point - a key aspect of this is, how far into lockdown countries are & how long there have been infections in the country since deaths lag infection by about 4 weeks on average

THREAD: So here’s what went down in #Goa after Sunday’s #JanataCurfew that was put in place by the Centre as a trial run to the #CoronavirusLockdown.

Without notice, on March 22 itself, @goacm announced that the state govt would be extending the curfew by three more days. (1)
We are informed that there is no need to panic, as groceries and other essential services wouldn’t be impacted. The only difference being that instead of staying open all day, grocery stores would now be open only from 6am to 11am. That was the first bad move. (2)
The very next morning, people thronged to the stores. Because stores were open for such a small window of time, everyone was out trying to get supplies at the same time. Many opted to hoard, while many others chose to be responsible citizens and buy only what was needed. (3).

A top Twitter influencer does a throwaway tweet on India's inadequate Rejuvenation package (1.7 lac crore for 120+ crore pop)

The responses he gets

•I plug a Swarajya article
•Non H desis pitch & moan about the GoI
•Desi Leftie women start "cow piss"
•Americans are clueless
India under the present admin runs one of the largest social development programmes in the world for its most vulnerable

But the Western press & Gungadeens know that success, prosperity & social upliftment don't get eyeballs or sponsors

This gets buried under atrocity junk
We're doing a way better job, with our underpaid doctors, our under armed police, & our allegedly falling-apart infra, with the #CoronavirusLockdown than many other countries

Yet, we're using their examples not to pull them down but as warning to our folk, without any malice!

तब तुम्हारे नेता क्या कर रहे थे। वो 30 दिसंबर 2019 का दिन था जब चीन ने 'एक प्रकार के न्यूमोनिया' की बात स्वीकार की और 7 जनवरी 2020 को WHO को कोरोना के बारे में बताया। भारत सरकार कब एक्टिव हुई, इसका आपको आईडिया भी है? ठीक इसके अगले दिन।

ठीक इसके अगले दिन। 8 जनवरी को स्वास्थ्य मंत्रालय की 'टेक्निकल एक्सपर्ट ग्रुप' की बैठक में मंथन हुआ।

You know how you’re all staying home to protect seniors and disabled people?
Guess what they’re doing to help disabled people? You know, the ‘most vulnerable’? THE TRUTH - a thread. #auspol #NDIS #HighRiskCovid19 #coronavirusaustralia #coronavirus #CoronavirusLockdown #COVID19au
2/ The unions, Labor and NDS have negotiated for registered disability service providers to get a 10% loading fee - money taken out of our (already underfunded) funding plus an advance payment with a 10 day cancellation policy.
Most of our services have been cut or withdrawn.
3/ People are still being packed into sheltered workshops with 500 people in them, all over Australia. If they withdraw, they lose that funding because it’s a ‘stated support’. And their two dollar an hour wage. But respite centres and activities are closing down.

Empathy cannot be forced out of people. Empathy should be earned. I do not think Nigerians owe most of their leaders empathy. I totally and vehemently disagree with the assertion that we should be empathetic towards our leaders. #Gimba #LetsFightCovid19 #StayHome
We should not be blackmailed into showing empathy for the same useless leaders that refused to build standard hospitals in Nigeria. #StayHome #abbakyari #CoronaVirusInNigeria
If coronavirus was limited to Africa, they would have since fled the country. Now that they are trapped with us in the same country that they have looted and destroyed, no one should preach empathy. #Covid19Out #IWillStayAtHome #StayHome

|| Free food for poor: Lack of awareness, not enough food at night shelters ||

Around 3:30 pm on Tuesday, standing outside a night shelter near AIIMS, Kailash, 44, a differently-abled, held out a transparent plastic bag with one request: A little rice. (1/n)
He had not eaten anything since morning.

“Food is over. Now it will come around 8 pm,” one of the caretakers at the night shelter said, as others were washing their plates after eating.

“I came to Delhi four days back in search of work and sleeps on footpaths... (2/n)
I have not eaten anything from morning,” Mr. Kailash, who cannot walk properly said.

On Saturday, CM Arvind Kejriwal had announced anyone can have food from govt-run night shelters, but interviews with homeless and spot checks at 4 shelters revealed many shortcomings. (3/n)

A close friend of mine today asked me as to what India should do to handle the coronavirus crisis. After our brief conversation, he thought I should write this and tweet. Here are my tweets in series -
Follow @PMOIndia 's national guidelines on social distancing, hand washing, and lockdown to avoid spreading #coronavirus and crowding existing limited health infrastructure-difficult due to population density, slums, and joint families.
Produce more test kits, test more people, and install more hospital beds through PPP. Respect our health workers and follow the needed discipline to flatten the curve & get through this crisis as quickly as possible.

#ExpressFrontPage | While goods trains fall in the exempted category, freight services too were hit as states did not mention ‘Railways’ as essential service in their respective orders.
With confusion at the lower levels about exemptions, transport even within states was hit. Big online grocers such as Grofers and Big Basket too were left scrambling to ensure sustenance of their supply chains.
#coronaviruslockdown #21daysoflockdown

Grofers CEO tweeted that their warehouse had been shut by officials, while Big Basket announced on its mobile app that they were not operational due to restrictions.

A thread. Looking for something thrilling to watch during #CoronavirusLockdown? A TV doc about a killer virus may seem a strange choice but trust me 'Smallpox: On Death Row" is a wonderful lesson from history that will lift your spirits. Here's a link:-…
2./ This film was made by Bettina Lerner, way back in 1997. She'd go on to transform the 'Horizon' series (and be my mentor and boss) and this combines her trademark brilliant story-telling and rich layers of factual information. See if you can guess its unlikely end!
3./ The show traces the breathtakingly bold attempt to eradicate one of the world's deadliest diseases. Smallpox killed 300M people in the 20th Century alone. It regularly wiped out 10% of the UK's population in a year.
