I don't know why WHO didn't add actual corona virus on the list. SERIOUSLY, It's Deep Concerning that the country where it all started is not even included.
#ChinaVirus #CoronaPandemic
WHO team which went on investigation says "Chinese Virus Lab Theory" is Not Accurate theory & didn't tell the exact source. Also, team further added "Corona Virus didn't arise from China".
Pakistani media have bigger ethics levels than Indian media 🤦‍♂️
They will not call "Chinese Virus" even once.

A narrative is being peddled that the #COVID19India crisis is due to these factors

1. Modi & Team claimed victory & did nothing
2. Modi allowed election rallies & #Kumbh which caused the #CoronaSecondWave
3. Now @narendramodi is not giving oxygen, medicines & vaccines to states
Let us see what facts can be ascertained by looking at the numbers.

On Feb 1, daily new cases in India had dropped to 85790. Two third of these new cases from the states of Maharastra & Kerala, blessed with best CM & best health minister in the country.

The mind is upset. In fact, there is so much outbreak of corona in India that every person is scared. So far, about one lakh bankers in India have been found corona positive, out of which one thousand have lost their lives.
Union has written letter several times to various department of govt for vaccination of bankers but no one is replying. Thousands of people gather daily in bank for their banking need so we are more prone to be positive. But the govt is doing its own arbitrary.
Today, I visit a dispensary for vaccine but doctor deny for it saying there is no any order from govt for vaccination of banker. What type of govt you are running in which there is no any priority for front line corona warriors.

Thread: 1/6

3286 people died yesterday due to #CoronaPandemic as per official records.

Now multiply that by 30 and you get 98550 deaths in a month. Compare this with 2,00,000 deaths from April 2020 till April 2021. That is less than 548 deaths per day on an average.
2/6 Some international experts have said that the figures are being hidden & misreported. The factor they count is between 20 to 30. If that was true then what we are witnessing is mass culling of citizens of India.
3/6 Even at a factor of 20 (under reported or wrongly classified), the daily death count would be 65000 people all over the country. No wonder that we are running out of cremation space, wood & other facilities.

No wonder we’re running out of Oxygen. The goberment has collapsed.

त्यांना साथ देणारे नकली पत्रकार, सुट्टीवरील न्यायव्यवस्था आणि नाकर्ते प्रशासन याला जेवढे कारणीभूत आहेत तेवढीच किंबहुना त्यापेक्षा जास्त आपली “बेशिस्त” जनता याला कारणीभूत आहे. (या प्रत्येकात अगदी काही अपवाद आहेत, त्यांची मी क्षमा मागतो)

पण वस्तुस्थिती ही आहे की प्रत्येक
क्षेत्रात, ऊद्योग असो, खाजगी वा सरकारी नोकरी असो वा घरगुती वा लघु ऊद्योग असो आपल्याला नियम आणि कायदे वाकवायची, मोडायची भितीच वाटत नाही, आणिबाणीच्या, महामारीच्या काळातही कोणी कायद्याला किंमत देईना.

एकंदर अघळपघळपणा आणि “चलता है” ॲटिट्यूड आपल्या जगण्याचा अविभाज्य घटक बनलाय.

India will resume domestic flights from May 25. I noticed some skepticism about flying amid the #CoronaPandemic. Here’s a thread on why flights are the safest mode of transportation and why you should #KeepTrustinAirTravel.
1. Health and hygiene inside the cabin are ensured using multiple highly efficient airflow and filtration systems. The constant “downward” wash of air @ 1 metre/sec reduces the risk of cross-contamination. There is no right-to-left or front-to-back air flow.
2. Cabin air is fully filtered and renewed every 2-3 minutes. At 10,000m cruise altitude, air is very dry, very cold (-50 degrees) but the air is controlled (temperature, pressure, oxygen & humidity) before being injected back into the cabin.

Was it actually insensitivity? Three among these are approved by @UPGovt for non #COVIDー19 cases. This is more because of the scare of events that follow discovery of a +ve patient having crossed path in a pvt setup. Pvt sector should be encouraged, not scared in this crisis Image
Confusion described here visible in reaction of administration to discovery of a #COVIDー19 case in pvt hospital. The center may be sealed, all staff may be quarantined in a remote school without even water and clean toilets. Or there may be just sanitization. Confusion prevails Image
Unfortunately, @MoHFW_INDIA guidelines spread more as warning, less as help. I wish @PMOIndia ensures mathematical flow chart about SOP for pvt sector. Everyone should know the risk from his action, and how to manage it. Till then innocent lives might continue to be lost.

Sindh CM @MuradAliShahPPP writes to PM @ImranKhanPTI on the #Locusts attack in different parts of Sindh reminding him of an aerial spray - as Plant Protection Dept lies with the Federal Govt. The #LocustPandemic is also equally fatal for crops as #CoronaPandemic for us - humans!
The letter further says, 'a massive #Locust attack is expected next month. Farmlands in #Sindh would once again come under attack of locust swarms from Iran by May 15, 2020'.

Ironically, from same #Iran's Taftan border, first ever #Corona +ve entered into Pakistan 2 months back.
The letter alarms bells for entire country with a prediction by UNs FAO that 'this year locust attack in Sindh will of severe and may continue for another two years. The situation is likely to create a disaster leading to famine and threat of food security in the entire country'.

The Empirization of China

The #Chinese want to be an #Empire and that too in a hurry. But many perished in this quest. #GreatBritain is no more a empire. #USA is also facing heat in #multipolar world in #PostColdWar era.
@narendramodi @MEAIndia
1. With cunning and ruthlessness #China was well on track. It might have become a #GlobalEmpire within another 20 to 30 years. But its own shrowdy , anti democratic and #AntiHuman policies leading to its own #disaster.
2.However in their desperation and over eagerness, China it seems has overplayed its hand on many fronts. Now, by triggering, concealing and manipulating a #CoronaPandemic, China has not only made its dream of empire untenable, it will probably destroy China.

My great colleague @ZParolin and I wrote a commentary in @TheLancetPH on #COVID19, school closures and child poverty. Open access:…. We argue that urgent action is needed to avoid #CoronaCrisis becoming a social crisis. Here’s a summary of our argument: 1/
School closures affect children’s learning negatively through two mechanisms. First mechanism: school closures will increase food insecurity. 2/
For many students living in poverty, schools are not only a place for learning but also for eating healthy. Unhealthy diets are associated with lower grades and substantial risks to physical health and mental well-being of children. 3/
