.@BSYBJP namaskara. I would like to highlight grave concerns through this #thread our #COVIDWarriors in hospital are facing. Doctors in the emergency rooms are not given #PPEs. On asking they are told, they don't really need it. #COVID #PPEshortage 1/n
The doctors in the #COVID screening OPDs are also not given #PPEs. They are the 1st contacts of potential #Corona positives. @BBMPCOMM Anil Kumar avare, is there anything you can do to help the #COVIDWarriors in this hospital? #PPEshortage 2/n
A lab technician who turned out to be positive at this hospital was shifted to the doctor's hostel for 'apparent isolation.' Isn't the hospital management risking the spread of infection to other doctors? #COVID #PPEshortage #Isolation @iamgouthamkumar @BBMP_MAYOR 3/n

Corruption of #Telangana #KCR govt peaks while fight against corona ebbs below abysmal pit

Few contrasting statistics below

Numbers on d face of it don't lie, but spin abt no.s on d back of it can be made to lie blatantly

Two #pangolin were saved frm illegal #wildlifetrade and a certain death....thanks to a joint op by @WCCBHQ #Mumbai and #Nanded forest division @MahaForest. 7 men hav been arrested. They had evn put up a video of the pangolin online fr sale.
Info & Images @IfsAshish
#Pangolin is a widely trafficked animal. Meat is considered delicacy.. also due to sum alleged medicinal values. Scales are used in traditional oriental medicines as an aphrodisiac and to cure asthma, psoriasis, cancer. Bile nd claws r reportedly used by svlr tribal communities.
Pangolins are smoked or dug out of their burrows and dipped into boiling water to extract the scales. Poachers who are contacted by traffickers lure local tribals to locate the animal and at times even trap it. Hunting or trade in pangolins in #India is a criminal offence .

TW: #Suicide

Really unfortunate news coming from #Mumbai about the death of #SushantSinghRajput by suicide.

It's time again to remind the media and people on Twitter that people die by suicide, they do not 'commit' it
Also there are already statements being made that he was a 'strong person' and that one would never expect him 'to do something like this'.

References also being made about his movie #Chicchore where he inspires his son to fight life's problems
Just like his role as MSD doesn't make him literally MSD, his role as a father advocating that 'Suicide isn't an option' doesn't make him immune to #depression

Case Study: Dharavi, Mumbai
(1/2) Asia's largest slum is #flatteningthecurve. Doubling in 44 days. 51% recovery, 4% mortality. No death in last 6 days. <20 cases/d. Thread
#Mumbai #MumbaiFightsCovid19
2/2: 'Mission Dharavi' by @mybmc was implemented across the slum. Strong #publichealth measures - Screening by fever camps, private clinic were effective tool to screen 3.6 lakh people out of 8 lakhs. Same strategy could have been applied to entire #Mumbai to reduce no. of cases.
BMC rolled out massive dosages of #Hydroxychloroquine across the slum as prophylaxis to prevent the infection. This might also contributed in early halt of #COVID19 in Dharavi. @MsAnaMcCarthy take a look at this thread. Success story from Asia's largest slum in Mumbai.

1/4 Saw this at Bandstand today. As a chest physician, this made me very happy! Pigeons are responsible for an interstitial lung disease (ILD) called hypersensitivity pneumonitis or extrinsic allergic alveolitis. Image
2/4 Most chest physicians and radiologists in the city will tell you how the number of patients with the disease has consistently increased over the years, paralleling the increase in the pigeon population of the city.
3/4 Thank you, whoever was responsible for this, and I hope this awareness increases! #interstitiallungdisease #lunghealth #lung #pigeon #mumbai #bandstand #ild @RajaniSurendarB @bandrabuzz @RupsaChak @AlexandraUlmer

To all #Mumbai citizens
From our cyclone #Amphan experience in Kolkata few days back, pointers ! #Nisarga

1. Fill extra water buckets
2. Charge your phones and battery packs to full
3. Be prepared to lose electricity, internet and phone network for 2-5 days.
4. Get mosquito and insect repellant as water logging will increase bug infestation around you.
5. lastly in case of rain accompanied with 100kmph wind, water will find its way through window gaps at home and office. Be prepared with towels to cover those gaps.

Good luck 👏🙏🏻

****Long Thread on #PoolTesting****

This is the time for India to increase the ratio of #Pool tests.

The number of #COVID19 cases in #India has seen a constant rise over the past two weeks. This has been concerning considering that most cities are gradually coming out...
...of the lockdown. Domestic flights have resumed operations and soon, we may see other relaxations coming into effect. Offices and factories are opening up across states and this may certainly lead to a new wave of cases being identified.
#COVID19India #PoolTesting
As of the morning of 27th May, the top four infected states in India, which are Maharashtra, Tamilnadu, Gujarat & Delhi amount to around 67% of the total cases recorded in India. But, the concern has also been the rising number of cases in states that were very much in control...

After today's press conference, it's pretty clear why #Kerala govt raised objections regarding Shramik trains from Mumbai. (Thane-Ernakulam train on 24 May was cancelled)

But the ones who actually created this issue are the Malayali organizations in #Mumbai
These people were collecting names via Google form. The issue is, the messages did not have Jagratha portal link. No mention of compulsory e-pass. And these messages were forwarded even on the day of journey.
So, many passengers reached railway station without registering on the website. They thought that filling the Google form is enough. (This happened even on May 22, when the first Mumbai-Kerala train left LTT.)

Here's a message I received on 24 May.

टॉवर ऑफ लंडन मधील मराठ्यांची शस्त्रे!

आपण मागील लेखामध्ये वाचले की १८५१ मध्ये लंडनच्या हाईड पार्क येथे भव्य प्रदर्शनं भरवण्यात आलं ज्यातून पुढे व्हिक्टोरिया आणि अल्बर्ट संग्रहालयात रूपांतर करण्यात आले.

#मराठी #मराठा #इतिहास #Maharashtra #Mumbai #weapons
#heritage #history
१८५७ - १८५९ च्या बंडानंतर इंग्रजांना पळता भुई थोडी झाली. जेमतेम कसेबसे त्यांनी या क्रांतीवर नियंत्रण मिळवले. क्रांतिकारी नेत्यांमध्ये एकसूत्री समन्वय नसल्याने प्रामुख्याने क्रांती फसली. पण, इंग्रज या मुळे पुढच्या काळात कोणतीही जोखीम पत्करायला तयार नव्हते.
१८५९ च्या परील नंतर क्रांती शमल्यावर भारताच्या सत्तेची सूत्र ब्रिटिश ईस्ट इंडिया कंपनी कडून ब्रिटिश राजघराण्याकडे हस्तांतरित होण्याची प्रक्रिया सुरू झाली. याचाच एक भाग म्हणून भारताचे व विशेषकरुन मराठ्यांचे निःशस्त्रिकरण सुरू झाले.

Reforms are coming to India's power sector. #DISCOMs in union territories are proposed to be privatized. What has India learnt from privatizing #electricity #distribution #utilities in the past?

Some food for thought >


#ElectricityTwitter #EnergyTwitter #privatization
Private/PPP DISCOMs operate in a few cities of India—most notably in #Delhi (Tata Power Delhi Distribution, #BSES Rajdhani & Yamuna), although among others, #Kolkata (CESC) and #Mumbai also receive power from privatized #DISCOMs.

What benefits accrue from #privatization?

Improvements in performance are best outcomes of #DISCOMs' #privatization—AT&C losses have fallen from 50+% in 2002 to ~8% in '19 for Delhi's DISCOMs, and CESC incurs 9.8% as against the 14.3% allowable in Kolkata.

Don’t we all love fun facts about wildlife? In our #WildAboutFacts series, we bring you some striking images and facts about the animals around us. Let’s begin the series with #Leopards.

Join the discussion and post your #leopard images!

Image: Vinay NP #NiFHiveFeature

#Leopards are actually the smallest among the genus of big cats. These elusive #cats prefer to hide in trees or in caves during the day.

Image: @rajivkalsi #NiFHiveFeature

#Leopards are not picky about their food and feed on a wide range of animals. They crouch low and sneak on their prey before attacking them.

मा. मुख्यमंत्री मा. उद्धव ठाकरेजी यांनी बोलाविलेल्या सर्वपक्षीय बैठकीला मंत्रालयात उपस्थित राहून मी आणि विधान परिषदेतील विरोधी पक्षनेते प्रवीण दरेकर यांनी भाजपाच्या वतीने खालील मुद्यांकडे राज्य सरकारचे लक्ष वेधले.
1) राज्यातील आरोग्य व्यवस्था अतिशय वाईट असून पूर्णतः कोलमडली आहे. सायन रुग्णालयात तर मृतदेहांशेजारीच रुग्णांवर उपचार केले जात आहेत. रुग्णांना आता बेड्स मिळणे कठीण झाले आहे.
#SionHospital #Mumbai
कोरोना नसलेल्या रुग्णांचे सुद्धा मोठे हाल होत आहेत. आरोग्य सेवेतील अनेक डॉक्टर, नर्सेस, कर्मचारी पॉझिटिव्ह होण्याचे प्रमाण वाढले आहे. शासनाने यात तत्काळ लक्ष घालावे.

खविणे योग्य नाही.

With over 7k #COVIDー19 cases, #Mumbai - the so-called city of dreams is getting badly exposed. Its rulers - @ShivSena has had a tight grip over the megapolis for over 25 years. Here's what they did:
1: Proliferation of slums: Over 60% of city lives in slums. And growing 1/2
Slums are vote banks and extortion points.
2: Not a single new govt hospital - Yes, one trauma centre in Jogeshwari. But no new KEM, JJ, which British left
3: Rampant high-rises in narrow lanes: Phone banking to Matoshree, all rules can be bent. Life is hell 1/3
4: Lobby of 10 contractors build, rebuild our roads, yet potholes! World's biggest scam in the richest civic corporation everyone ignores
5: Civic schools have shut, handed over to builders. Why should poor study?
The congestion, filth, pollution has made life hell 1 /4

#SupremeCourt hearing on petition by #ArnabGoswami begins.

Sr adv Mukul Rohatgi commences his arguments on behalf of #ArnabGoswami, starts with narrating the facts of the #Palghar lynching.
Rohatgi laments killing of two sadhus in #Palghar by 200 men even though 12 policemen were present there.

"It is shocking somebody took a video of the sadhus being lynched while the police is standing by & is virtually complicit," adds Rohatgi.
