The @MoHFW_INDIA has allowed on-site registration for the 18-44 age group. This is limited to Government #COVIDVaccination centers (CVCs) at the present moment.…
#cowinregistration #VaccinationDrive #COVID19 #IndiaFightsCOVID19 Image
But this is a mere eyewash because-
1.This has been left to the discretion of the respective state/ UT governments
2.This shall be implemented only if vaccine has been left unutilised from online registrations and that too at Government CVCs.
#VaccineFor18Plus #VaccineForAll
While this has been stated in a press release, the #CoWIN website’s FAQs still state that online registration is mandatory for 18-44 age group.

I think there is a greater responsibility on patients too.

Doctors say, 80% effort has to be from patients. If a patient does not follow #COVID19 protocols/instructions given by Doctor, panics then it will be more difficult

In a show of utmost grit and commitment, Pune-based Dr. Mukund Penurkar returned to duty just a day after losing his father to the coronavirus. His mother and brother are also undergoing treatment for COVID-19. #Pune #CoronavirusIndia #IndiaFightsCorona… Image
Dr. Penurkar, an internal medicine specialist at the city's Sanjeevan Hospital, says it was the only way to pay tribute to his father. He lost his father Ramdasrao Penurkar on April 26, but came to the hospital the next morning to attend to other COVID-19 patients. #coronavirus Image
He even had to perform the last rites all alone, as his mother and brother were undergoing treatment in the ICU. "It's very difficult for me to think that I could not save my father despite being a doctor," Dr. Penurkar said. #IndiaFightsCOVID19 #OxygenCylinders #CoronavirusIndia Image

all of this #Covid India situation is horrific. news, people, all sorts of media have jumped into looking for the root cause.
but really as #responsiblecitizens of India how many of you all have followed the rules in past few months?
did you maintain social distancing? did you avoid unnecessary travel? did you take precautions when you traveled?
did you take tests while crossing borders? did you attend/arrange any marriage/large gathering with strict guidelines? for handful of money paid for bribe to surpass the restrictions, it's costing our own community with unfathomable loss

Sharing below a post from Hanuman Mal Bengani the ex CEO of Linde India.

Linde is one of the largest oxygen producers in India.

“Having spent my life time of 45 years in oxygen industry and involved with setting up 50% of production capacities in 🇮🇳 #India
(as business head of Linde) I can share few things which will probably clear some of your thoughts. First few facts:

1) Industrial and medical oxygen are same product produced in same plant, stored in same tanks and filled in same cylinders. #IndiaFightsCOVID19 #8 Oxygen
For medical oxygen the gas company just have to analyse each batch and certify. No other difference. In fact for industrial we need 99.5% pure oxygen where as for medical as per pharmocopea all over world is 93+\-3%.

People are trolling me because I'm not retweeting COVID related content

Me and my parents are providing free rations to some poor families in the vicinity

This is my humble request, in this time of grief, instead of trolling others, help someone in reality

I am not retweeting because about 90% my audience are from outside India.

And speaking of those 10% of Indian audience, most of them are below 20 who are early coders. I don't think I and my audience can help anyone find a bed in hospitals or oxygen cylinders.
But in times of this epidemic, I can feed poor people. And this is what I am doing with all my duty.

If you also want to help someone, first stop trolling your own people.

Few things on #IndiaFightsCOVID19

#1 Demand Supply Gap
there is a sudden surge in demand for testing, beds, Oxygen, etc. Make no mistake crisis is real

#2 Panic due to scarcity
Panic driven by scarcity. Like a run on bank, remember #icicibank run in 2008 ?
#3 Precautionary Procurement
Patients get into panic driven precautionary engagement - especially beds, oxygen, medicines (Remdesivir etc)

#4 Amplification by panic
panic multiplies efforts. 1 person needing a bed puts word to 5 people - 5X beds are being sought for 1x need
#5 Black marketing thugs
Get into play to make money out of panic situation. Lots of bad elements hand in glove all over

International articles are written showcasing deaths, tragic situations, crematoria. Putting #India down.

Our PM Narendra Modi is dealing with an exceptional crisis. *No PM has had to face such a situation that has impacted every part of India and every aspect of our lives*. If a family member is seriously ill we get shaken.
Here,130 crore people are at risk. Some say lockdown should’ve been earlier. Some say Army should’ve been called. Some are saying intelligence failure while still others say that he is trying to appease by announcing certain measures.
*Everyone has retrospective opinions but NONE are ready to bear the responsibility of 130 cr people. Only he has to*.

If the lockdown doesn’t succeed then he gets targeted. If it does, still he gets targeted because the economy is hit.

I remember the mass graves in #NewYork last year where #COVID went through the population devastating families and friends. Mass cremation is ongoing in India. We need to understand the situation and empathize.…
They are not numbers. They are uncles, aunts, mothers, brothers, sisters, fathers, best friends... #CovidIndia

For most, they have nowhere to go, no funds to lobby. Simple people facing extraordinary choices between working and putting food on the table OR dying of #COVID19.
How can we help as individuals? Be kind and help each other. We are all fighting the same battle, but some of us have a better arsenal. I feel helpless as I watch in horror the events unfolding in my birth country. Stay strong #India. This too shall pass. 🤞

Fauci says the US will try to help India deal with its record-breaking Covid surge. "It is a dire situation that we're trying to help in any way we can."

“We have a long standing commitment to India’s public health,” adds a White House rep.

Seems like there’s still some confusion about this. Covishield production not impacted by US exports restrictions. That’s for Covovax.
"..we will rapidly deploy additional support to the people of India and India's health care heroes." - US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

Dr. Randeep Guleria, Dr. Naresh Trehan and Dr. Devi Shetty addressed some common misconceptions and apprehensions surrounding #COVID19

Here are the highlights of the discussion 👇
AIIMS Director, Dr. Randeep Guleria speaks on who needs oxygen.

In healthy individuals with oxygen saturation 93-94, there's no need to really take high flow oxygen just to maintain your saturation at 98-99 (1/3)

Oxygen is a treatment, it's like a drug. Taking oxygen intermittently is an absolute waste of oxygen. There is no data that shows that this will be of any help to you & therefore you shouldn't do: AIIMS Director, Dr. Randeep Guleria
