#allahabadhighcourt #COVID19India

deceased persons is disposed of strictly as per the Covid Protocol.”

- Allahabad HC

#CovidCrisis #UttarPradesh @myogiadityanath Image
The court said that:

“The amount of the compensation, in our considered opinion, is very less. To compensate the loss of life of the bread earner of the family and that too because of the deliberate act on the part of the State.”

Y #Ivermectin doesn't work
1 #ivermectin craze 4 #COVID19India started in South-America, spread like wildfire to USA/Europe. Heavily criticized in countries upholding #science, didnt find place in guidelines. BUT, nw it reached #India, into minds/hearts of doctors not due to...
2...the #science, but bcoz National institutions such as @aiims_newdelhi/ certain govts @goacm endorse it - without getting into the science of it. Nw, #ivermectin is slowly bcoming nationalist boy scout of #medicine in #India, wrngly endorsed by naïve students/senior professors.
3 Ivermectin is broad-spectrum antiparasitic approved by @US_FDA, proved to be safe at dose of ≤200 µg/kg. In a 60 kg man, the max conventional dose in 12 mg.

#Covid19India Another 10% decline in nationwide new-cases. This is good but I am skeptical as testing is curtailed in many states so this decline may be artificial. Hope I am wrong.

Karnataka now #1 state in new-cases, displacing Maharashtra, although both <40k in new-cases!
Just read this on #Maharashtra .. There is 'Testless Lockdown".

Same is true for #Delhi and many other states too!

M/s @drharshvardhan @narendramodi Any thoughts?
Here is how states are reducing #Covid19 testing .. #Delhi #Maharashtra #Telangana #Kerala are top-states who have slowed-down testing considerably!

Wonder if @drharshvardhan @narendramodi speak-up on this unethical #Covid19Management, or its okayed by Centre?😎

The three prime blunders of managing #COVID19India in 2021 (many others too)
We would recognize two now because they contribute to our surge now. The third one is not yet known to the health system and the powers that run it.
The first one - the premature declaration of victory over #COVID19 in initial months despite UK & other countries still under a strict lockdown. This percolated down and many stopped taking precautions and worse - made fun of those who were careful. ✌️ was declared at the 🔝 2/n
Second one - mismanagement of #COVID19Vaccination - no orders in Jan, complicated approval, online registration & deliberate slow vaccination (words of task force member) - result is poor rates, unnecessary vaccine hesitancy, why vaccinate when we achieved ✌️ over COVID19 3/n

THREAD: On Saturday morning, Dr @akshaygn, a Mumbai-based eye surgeon, was waiting to operate on a 25-year-old woman who had recovered from a bout of Covid-19 three weeks ago. 1/8 #COVID19India
Inside the surgery, an ear, nose and throat specialist was already at work on the patient, a diabetic. He had inserted a tube in her nose and was removing tissues infected with mucormycosis, a rare but dangerous fungal infection. 2/8 #COVID19India
This aggressive infection affects the nose, eye and sometimes the brain.
After his colleague finished, Dr Nair would carry out a three hour procedure to remove the patient's eye.
