It has been five months since the #Covid_19india has started to grow. It has been 130 days since the first #lockdown was imposed. From 606 cases on the first day of lockdown, we have now 17.50 lakh cases. A thread on how it has progressed so far....
As on 1st August, 2020, Recovery rate in India is 66%, active cases stand at 32% and casualties are 2%. Great news is that, India reported highest recovery yesterday of 51,255 cases. This ensured that active cases increased by only 2627 yesterday. Image below:
The Western part of India (Madhya Pradesh included) currently shares 33% of the case load, which is an encouraging sign if compared to previous months. A look at the case share of the west:

. @CovidIndiaSeva I beg your kind attention here ! If we look at proportion of #Covid_19india patients on #ventilator support, it is 0.4% to 0.5%, which reflects ARDS due to Pneumonia due to #COVID19 as cause of death (COD) ( @WHO code: U07.1/2)... 1/n
So, around 150 deaths in 3000 projected deaths are actually due to #Covid_19india Epiphenomenon: People with diabetic complications, advanced cancer etc where the main COD is underlying health conditions, but #COVID19 can only be a contributing cause .. 2/n
Vast majority of #COVID19 deaths in India could be an epiphenomenal death only, considering #BCG vaccine induced trained #Immunity (Nature paper link at the end of this thread) that offers protection from severity of #Covid_19india . Why I am saying this is more important.. 3/n

What are MSMEs? And why did the #Government set aside ₹3.7Lcr ($49bn) for #MSME support?

As the name suggests, #MSMEs (Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises) are small businesses. Their definition varies by country.

In India, the definition was changed last week.

Previously, MSMEs were defined according to investment in plant/machinery (if they were in #Manufacturing) or investment in equipment (if they were in #Services).

It went like this:

Last Wednesday, @nsitharaman announced a new definition for #MSMEs. Manufacturing & Services were clubbed and a new parameter - annual turnover - was added.

Now it goes like this:

My covid-19 experience.
A thread.
I live in Anna Nagar West, Chennai.
Only my mom goes out twice a week to buy groceries within 500 m radius.
She took utmost care by wearing mask and avoiding crowded stores.
But as life is unfair, she got the symptoms on the night of 9 May.
She had fever, cough and body pains intermittently and was convinced it's cuz of her eating a chilled mango. My bro too had a fever during a night but recovered soon. On 11th night, she had a temp. of 102 which prompted me to take her to a pvt lab to get her tested for covid-19.
We were sure it'd be -ve but the lab sent an email saying she is POSITIVE. We were devastated cuz we didn't know how she got it. We are a family of 4. Mom ,grandma, me and my bro.(And a dog). We were more worried about grandma cuz she is 81 yr old diabetic and heart patient.

KL has flattened it at least for now. RJ, MP, UP, AP, shows good improvements. TS numbers, though seem to suggest a flattening, is suspect due to very low tests. Major spikes in TN, TR etc. DL numbers come with one day lag. #Covid_19india
Doubling time is close to 11 days for India now. But, it is only about a week or so in Bihar, TN & MH where cases are growing rapidly. #Covid_19india
WB, MP, TS & PB are doing very low number of tests per million population and the percentage of tests turning +ve is high there. They need to do more tests. Else, the actual number of cases may be under reported. #Covid_19india

CM #UddhavThackeray addresses state: We are all waiting for this war to get over. Like I had said earlier, if we could have seen our enemy, we could have won this war a long time ago.

#COVID19 #COVID #CoronaInMaharashtra #Coronavirus #CoronavirusLockdown #CoronavirusOutbreak
CM #UddhavThackeray: But this enemy is invisible. And another factor is that this enemy is using our own people to spread its infection. Determination, strength, patience all of these will stand us in good stead.

CM Uddhav Thackeray: Tomorrow we will complete 6 weeks since we have been in a #lockdown. Many are constantly looking at numbers and raising questions so I want to place some numbers in front of you.

I am writing this thread to let everyone know what is happening in Mumbai for dialysis patients.
We go for a dialysis in Mumba, Andheri. Centre is very good and Doctor's are brilliant. They even do the dialysis at subsidized cost to some marginalised people who cannot afford the charges. All staff is very good all g with the Nephrologists
Centre found a positive COVID-19 case so they asked every patient to do a test and then only they can get a dialysis. Even they asked the staff to do it. This is very fair because any patient may spread the disease.o
