7 Mega Cities in India – Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Mumbai have 42% of COVID cases and 53% of COVID deaths in India.
Death Per Million population (DPM) is 114 ; #health infrastructure in these megacities is over stretched. 1 of N ImageImage
Week-on-Week testing in mega cities has increased by 16.5%. #COVID19 positivity / million in mega cities has increased from 2841 to 3324. Recovery / million population from 1745 to 2218 validates that most of the COVID cases in mega cities are in “Mild-Very Mild Category” 2 of N ImageImageImage
The 30-day moving average growth rate of active cases dropping from 60% to 32% in megacities. The velocity of spread might be tapering down in some megacities. Caution: week-on-week data on cases & deaths can vary; growth should be negative, sooner is better.

A new #controversy! Reduced cases in #Ahmedabad due to #herdimmunity or due to #AmdavadAMC ! The fact is everything contributes a bit but mostly it’s the huma-virus coexistence ! Virus is learning to co-habitate by becoming milder ! As if it kills everyone whom it infect , 1/
#virus soon will not have many potential hosts .. so it’s important for virus survival too to mutate and become milder & less lethal ! So my opinion definitely #Covid_19 soon shall become like seasonal flu ! It will come and go periodically with drastically reduced serious cases!
So , some will have strong inherent immunity & will not get infected , some will get infected & then develop immunity , virus will become milder so as not to create serious disease and there will be some who shall still succumb to even mildest virus !!

Plotting the moving average of new #COVID19 cases and new deaths in #India

12 districts --> 57% cases

#Hyderabad has recently seen a sharp increase of cases

#Kolkata & #Ahmedabad --> high case fatality ratio


@aparanjape @c_aashish @MulaMutha @calamur @CafeEconomics
Next 12 districts make up 8% of all cases

#Jalgaon and #Solapur have a worrisome CFR - 10.9% & 7.7% respectively

Next 12 districts make up 4% of all cases

#Agra has a high CFR - 9.4%

Hope that we can get the case fatality ratio down to near zero!

I travelled from #Pune to #Ahmedabad on 25th of May 2020 via @IndiGo6E

In this thread I will share step by step things happen. On this day, India allowed to resume airlines from different states which were stopped 2 months earlier because of CONVID 19 risk.
1. Web check-in before 48 hours is mendetory. I was also instructed to carry printed copy of my boarding pass to avoid any physical contact with an authority.
2. I was instructed to reach the airport at least 3 hours before my scheduled flight. Such was mendatory to complete various checkups said the authority. I was informed that the Arogya setu app is mendatory.

The true strength of a society is seen during a crisis.

From today, I will be sharing inspiring stories of #CoronaWarriors who are doing exceptional work in this #FightAgainstCOVID19 in the city of #Ahmedabad

These are individuals or organisations doing selfless service. 👍👍
The first story is about #BAPS, the Swaminarayan Sect, its sadhus & volunteers

They have been supplying fresh vegetables to more than 1000 poor families daily.

The entire work is planned & executed in a highly professional manner
Today mrng, I had the opportunity to visit the Swaminarayan Temple at Shahibaugh, Ahmedabad

It was a privilege to meet the people doing this selfless service

Thank you #BAPS & Pujya Brahmvihari Swamiji for responding so well to my appeal

After getting a good rap on the knuckles by editors for being a lazy lurker on social media, here's course correction. I am now doing a thread of all my reportage in 2018. (@sree and @prempanicker had encouraged me to do this many years ago 🙈) Please read and share.
While urbanisation is a global trend, villagers around #Ahmedabad don't want to live in cities. Since 2012, #Gujarat government has encouraged 12 cities to swallow up some 800 villages. And now, most of them are resisting. A take on the 'Gujarat Model'.…
The two main problems for the new state of #Telangana are exemplified in
