A Supreme Court bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan, SK Kaul and MR Shah to shortly hear the suo motu case so that proper treatment is meted out to #COVID19 patients and dead bodies are given a dignified treatment.
SG: I want to assist the court. In furtherance of the cognisance, this issue needs examination. I have a copy of the guidelines on dead body management by the Centre.
SC: We are more concerned with living than dead. Look at the condition of hospitals. Bodies are there in the wards. Mumbai is testing 16,0000 to 17,000 whereas in Delhi its falling below 7,000. Media has highlighted this issue.

One reason ramping up testing really matters: if reported cases are low because of lack of testing, people can’t asses their risk.

#Covid19testing #coronavirus #socialdistancing #numbers

The more testing we do, the more actual cases and reported cases converge. That allows people to more accurately asses their risk of infection.

Imagine we did no testing so report cases was *zero*. People would asses their risk of infection at zero.
