While #Kerala is better prepared than other states wrt #COVID19, things are falling through the cracks in the state.

Amazed at local level leadership at hometown. Since lockdown, Already ward level teams formed, survival kit menu decided, collections pouring in, delivery teams settled. School teachers giving their zoom accounts for team coordination.

Kerala will definitely survive this.
Few actions decided:

1. Awareness to create isolation room at every home for crticially ill and old patients

2. Find volunteers and young active people at every ward. Train them as coordinators

3. Find funding for each ward from afflient families in same ward

4. Make list of parents staying alone as their kids are abroad (high number in kerala). Do periodic check-in for supply of essentials

5. Medical team to check on critically ill patients at home if needed

6. Counselors on call for people with anxiety and any mental health issues

I am not planning to scare you, but in these times, we need abundant caution, because so much morons are around prescribing cow piss, sun rays, placebo medicines and clapping to contain the #CoronaVirus.

So let us see how maths says about our scenario...just listen to science!
I started to collect the information of infections from various websites and trackers pertaining to India.

The virus was first found in Kerala, India on 30/01, it was reached a fig of 3 on 2/02.

#Kerala made all effort to contain it and no further cases rported till 1/03.
So we can have a logical and reasonable assumption that these imported #CoronaVirus cases to Kerala was not locally transmitted or reached the level of community transmission till 1/03, as the window was more than 4 weeks.

So I decided not to add these while doing the projection

While the PM is busy giving a sermon on why people should not leave home this Sunday and clap hands from their balcony, #Kerala has announced a very real Rs 20000 cr financial package. In other words, sorry we are in a hurry.

What does this mean? Thread
I spoke to sm1 who worked on this. My first que: WHY? This is prob Kerala's biggest aid, larger than the one after history's worst floods in '18& its repeat in '19. His reply: There is a possibility of the situation getting worse. So we are planning for the worst-case scenario.
What does this entail? The bulk of the Kerala package, Rs 140000 cr, is to clear various dues the govt owes to individuals and institutions. This could pump a lot of money into the system at a time when the economy is nearly paralysed.

25 years after a #terrorist org Jamiyathul Ihsania executed murders in #Kerala secretly and successfully put the blame on the shoulders of others now police reveals the truth How many murders did they actually commit? Why #BJP not demanding a comprehensive enquiry by @NIA_India ?
