THREAD - Was just going through the list of the #PMDoesNotCare fund and it seems like a "White Collar" version of bribery/favorings towards certain companies and agencies. Not a hater, but where is this going?
What's the usage of the funds if it is only being collected not used?
So here are a few of the largest donors towards the fund via @moneycontrolcom

The nation wants to know!! (is this trademarked @ArnabGoswamiRTv @republic ?)…

#PMCaresFund #PMOfIndia #ModiMadeDisaster
What's shocking is that the @PMOIndia has violated and breached a bunch of sections towards the #RTI act with regard to disclosing the donors, beneficiaries, decisions made and how they were made of the so called CARES fund.

जब मोदी जी @narendramodi ने 14 अप्रैल को कहा कि 20 अप्रैल से लॉक डाउन में छूट दी जाएगी तब तो किसी ने इसका विरोध नहीं किया, किसी ने इसको सबका विश्वास से नहीं जोड़ा.

जब 15 अप्रैल को गाइडलाइन जारी हुई तब भी किसी ने कुछ नहीं कहा, किसी ने इसको सबका विश्वास से नहीं जोड़ा.
जब ई कॉमर्स को छूट देने की बात सामने आई तो सब बड़ा उछल उछल कर कह रहा था कि सबकी दुकान खोली जाए, केवल ई कॉमर्स को ही छूट क्यों दे रहे, सबको दें.

फिर 19-20 अप्रैल को स्पष्टीकरण आया कि ई कॉमर्स के जरिए केवल आवश्यक वस्तुओं को बेचने/खरीदने की छूट होगी.
फिर 21 अप्रैल को सरकार की तरफ से दिशनिर्देशों में स्टेशनरी, बिजली, मोबाइल रिचार्ज, कृषि संबंधी आदि व्यवसाय को लॉक डाउन से छूट दी गई तब तो किसी ने इसको सबका विश्वास से नहीं जोड़ा, किसी ने इन छूटों का विरोध नहीं किया!

यहां तक तो न कोई रमजान था न कोई अन्य त्योहार.

My biggest challenge is to ensure that affected people are treated with compassion, and not stigmatized. - Health Minister @drharshvardhan

Let us take special care in ensuring that we empathize with and provide support to people and families infected with #COVID19.

1/n 🧵
We need to reach out to those people who are afraid to come forward & seek #COVID19 treatment because of the stigma we have attached. Delayed treatment due to the stigma & fear is costing us precious lives.
- Director, #AIIMS
#SayNoToStigma #SaveLives
How to defeat #Stigma in the #FightAgainstCoronavirus?

1. They are people, not victims/cases

2. Don't disclose info about affected people

3. Rely on authentic sources (@MoHFW_INDIA /@WHO etc)

4. Share positive stories

5. Respect #CoronaWarriors

Film Actors / Sports Personalities / industrialists / entrepreneurs and all those who have bank balances more than 30/40 lacs. Here is the truth. India’s medical staff need to be protected. We need to distribute as many #PPE as possible and now!! Specially in the states...
In the states of MHA / MP / UP / RAJ. Talk and enquire about how can you contribute. One #PPE set costs around 750 delivered. If you do 1000 it will cost 750,000 max and we need more than 20,000 plus kits everyday. We can help you locate the suppliers. Pay them directly
And choose your hospitals to be delivered. Through @IndiaPostOffice it will reach them in 5/7 days. Let us protect our doctors / nurses / support staff / police. Pls come out and donate. India needs you. Right now.

It has been brought to my notice by many parents from all across the country that even in this time of crisis many schools are increasing their annual fee. A lot of schools are also asking the parents to deposit the school fee for 3 months together.
I request all schools to join hands in the #FightAgainstCoronavirus, empathize with the parents amid this global disaster and re-consider their decision.
Our Hon'ble Prime Minister @narendramodi has also urged to give priority to human values ​​in the time of this epidemic. And hence, I hope all schools would be providing timely salary to their teachers & staff.

Front page of Today's Economic Times - Our media needs to do a better job of presenting data

When data is not viewed correctly, we jump to incorrect assumptions. And that can lead to poor decisions.


#IndiaFightsCoronavirus #CovidTesting
This article has 3 mistakes

Mistake #1 - Rounding Error

4221 / 107006 = 3.94%

Rounding can make it either 3.9% or 4%, not 4.1%

Mistake #2 - Relative Difference

An increase from 3.3% to 4.1% is a relative increase of 24.2%.

This increase shows that we did have an increased %age of infections

A day in the life of a #COVID-19 #healthworker in India. A #Thread.

#indiafightscorona #healthwarriors
What does it mean to be a frontline warrior amid the #Coronavirus ( #COVID-19 ) pandemic? It means being away from home for weeks, staying awake for days and nights,
dealing with emotionally vulnerable patients and a sense of timelessness – when the clock ceases to exist and the patients’ recovery is all that matters.

After 2 successful morale-boosting mega-events, I hope PM in his third event consider below rational steps to fight COVID-19

1. Keep up the morale of doctors by helping state governments with surplus PPE kits and required drugs.
2. Increase testing & quarantine facility with the help of state governments & PM cares funds.
3. Ask everyone to report at least 6 suspicious cases around them at 6 PM in 6 minutes.
4. Track, Test, Isolate and Quarantine required reported cases.
In these uncertain times, if we take rational steps now, We will soon decrease the number of active cases. Indian economy which is already on its knee will get relief by avoiding extension of lockdown.

We know the idea of asking reporters to put quests on @MoHFW_INDIA WA group before #pressers has been farcical. Not only quests are cherry-picked, hardly 1 or 2 are taken up. Here's a thread of quests which went #unanswered on #Apr_3. #IndiaFightsCoronavirus by #GaggingPress.
1.Out of all the tests done in India so far, can Dr Gangakhedkar clarify how many individual people been tested,and how many second, third, fourth tests etc have been done?- Some states have announced they will expand testing criteria from ICMR's criteria. Are they allowed?
2. Will those positive results be accepted by the Centre?
3. How many ILI and SARI patients come up in hospitals across the country over the last two weeks?Also, how many samples of such patient have sentinel surveillance been conducted on?
4. How many Docs are tested positive
