Impact of pandemic and lockdown on Rajasthan's economy: In Dausa's Balaheri village, 120 Kms from Jaipur, a community of around 50 families that specialize in making brassware are struggling to make ends meet. Reporting with @shivangi441 for @newslaundry & @nlhindi
Covid has killed one person in this village and the lockdown has hit hard. With most of the artisans dependent on middlemen who pay them on the basis of no. of pieces, monthly income of Rs 20k-25k has come to a nought.
For Radha Govind Thathera who used to supply brassware to cities like Jaipur, Agra, Delhi and Mumbai, there are hardly any orders these days. 'Ever since the lockdown, orders have been reduced to just 10%', he says.

"Ik hoop dat de dames en heren medici zich eindelijk realiseren dat ze enthousiast hebben meegewerkt aan dit misdadige beleid, zoals hun collega's enthousiast meewerkten aan de eugenetica in de late jaren twintig en de vroege jaren dertig van de vorige eeuw dat deden..."

Die Sparquote der privaten Haushalte erklimmt volkswirtschaftlich besorgniserregende Dimensionen. In Q1 2021 kletterte sie auf den höchsten Stand in einem Quartal seit 1991, auf 23,2%. Deutschland und sein Übertreiben bei der “Bekämpfung” der Coronapandemie wird im Endgebnis
dafür stehen, wirtschaftlich auf der Verliererseite zu stehen, selbst innerhalb der EU ist man im 1. Quartal 2021 mit einer realen BIP-Schrumpfung von -1,8% zum Vorquartal an den letzten Plätzen. So ist das wenn man in der eigenen Filterblase mit @Karl_Lauterbach & Co gefangen
ist und nicht wahrnehmen will, das andere Länder mit viel weniger repressiven Maßnahmen bessere oder ähnliche Ergebnisse beim Infektionsgeschehen erzielen. #lockdown

Again, I rest my case.
"That can be scary, but as Rosa Parks said: ‘I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear."

Damn... And so it is!

Venues have worked hard to reopen & make their spaces safe. We will do our bit by being there and performing!
All you have to do is buy advance tickets & enjoy the show!

#WorldEnvironmentDay 2021 is being observed at the most difficult of times with India battling on two fronts - 2nd wave of #COVID19 has caused devastation, and evidence shows that the country has not augured well on environmental norms.

A look at 10 major environmental concerns:
2020 was the 8th warmest year on record, and 2016 was the warmest ever, followed by 2009. 12 of the 15 warmest years were recorded during the past 15 years (2006-2020), and 2011-20 was the warmest decade on record.

This is a warning for India. Here's why hindustantimes.com/india-news/on-…
Environmental degradation is a cause of concern for agriculture, with rising use of insecticides, pesticides, which is contaminating soil, ground water.

GoI has launched a mission for organic farming but only 2% of India’s 140M hectares of farm land is used for organic farming.

1) Die nationalstaatliche Ebene taugt nur für einen sehr groben Vergleich, denn das Infektionsgeschehen ist regional hoch differenziert. Nicht nur, weil super-spreading events und „Wellen“/“Peaks“ zu unterschiedlichen Zeiten stattfinden, sondern auch in der Gesamtschau …

… Wenn wir Deutschland nur sehr grob - nach 16 Bundesländern - aufteilen, sehen wir schon, wie unterschiedlich stark die Wellen die einzelnen Bundesländer getroffen haben (hier Darstellung: tägl. tödliche Infektionen pro 100.000EW, y-Achse normiert, daher vergleichbar):

Has the #WestBengal #COVID19 (partial) lockdown been useful? YES!!! Future prognosis? A thread based on analysis by @cessi_iiserkol team 👇🏾
New daily cases have halved since May 15 (beginning of lockdown).
Left @covid19indiaorg data; Right: CESSI model projection versus data 1/n
The pandemic growth rate has dipped below zero during the lockdown and is in the negative which is desirable. The more negative is the growth rate, the faster is the fall in active cases. Negative growth rate needs to be sustained. 2/n
Test positivity (percentage of those who test positive) has almost halved over the #lockdown period and is around 17% as of May 31. Should be sustained below 2.5% to keep the #COVID19 pandemic at a manageable level and ideally should be 0%! 3/n

For those who haven’t figured out the actual scam, let me explain: the experimental unlicensed’#Vaccine’ could only be waved through under ‘Emergency Authorization’ and we have to be in #lockdown for it be deemed an ‘emergency.’ It’s a a con - a self-licking ice cream cone.
That’s why they keep pushing bogus testing, and endless “variants” - these politicians are manipulators and this is how they are getting away with pushing such highly risky, experimental #vaccines.

None of this would be possible without your fear.
The lesson: Lockdowns Kill.

Take that anyway you want, but do not sit and pretend you don’t know what is going on.

The irish government are systematically destroying 🇮🇪.
1. Treatments; you have provided no access or encouraged any treatments regarding #COVID19ireland. In fact you've ignored International regarding studies on several options.
2. Carehomes and Hospitals; You failed to protect the old and vulnerable. Most carehomes were abandoned. The majority of people whom died of #COVID19 caught it in a carehome or hospital! Think about that.
3. SME's and hospitality; government has targeted these business and used them consistently as scapegoats time and time again. The data showed these businesses were not either cause or high risk, but #msm portrayed them as such. The owners and families abandoned!

Delighted to report our paper examining the ‘missing’ children from hospitals during the first COVID-19 UK lockdown has just been published in @EurJPediatrics
rdcu.be/clnF6
Explanatory thread below:
1/ We were interested in discovering which children were ‘missing’ from hospital services as the first lockdown started. We analysed anonymised records of patients <16yrs in 2 Oxfordshire (UK) hospitals, providing secondary & tertiary care.
2/ We looked across 6 years: in 2020 prior to, during and after lockdown & 2015-2019 across matched dates including the same number of weekdays/weekends. ICD10 codes gave us the diagnoses of inpatients across all 6 years to assess ‘missing’ diagnoses during lockdown.

2/ Last night this is what happened…

NOTE: the family wants to share their story to offer a glimpse of love ❤️ on all levels

For 3 years, Mark took care of Sharon, his #bride, as she battled breast #cancer. It relentlessly spread to her bones. He never stopped giving.
3/ She could tell he was spent and getting sick himself. “Mark, let’s get you to the doctor!” “Not until you are well, Sharon.” He remained laser focused on her every need. As she became weaker, he took her to get admitted yesterday.

#SupremeCourt commences hearing of its suo motu proceedings on ameliorating the conditions of migrant workers during the #COVID19 induced #lockdown.

It expresses displeasure at Centre not submitting its affidavit in time.
"You were directed to file your affidavit a day before the hearing but you have done it just now. Our orders are meant to be compiled with," SC tells Centre.

Adv Prashant Bhushan, appearing on behalf of some activists, addresses the shortcomings in replies filed by states.
SC clarifies it hasn't directed states to grant cash transfer in lieu of dry ration after Bhushan mentions that court also wanted to know about cash transfers.

As he talks about cooked food, SC observes the situation doesn't appear to be as grave as last year for migrant workers

This Conservative MP who voted AGAINST feeding hungry children with YOUR MONEY in #FreeSchoolMeals is at her "favourite restaurant" @babulsofficial to eat posh food spending YOUR MONEY while making Barnard Castle jokes about Dominic Cummings who broke Public trust & 150,000 died!
99% of people DESPISE what you voted for @DehennaDavison. Tory MPs have zero empathy and are entirely disconnected from 99% of the Electorate. You represent the rich, smug, hateful 1% who exploit us.

Elected by Propaganda, removed by total heartlessness.
