I called 800 numbers over last few days, connectivity rate < 3%, felt utterly helpless and saw friends and family losing loved ones... decided to work on alleviating the 'information chaos' with #CovidIndia #VerifiedCovidResources
- We ingest data from various public data sources
- For someone in need, autodialer (thanks @airtelindia) attempts calling all relevant service providers
- Automated verification of service providers basis connected calls and IVR feedback
- Service providers’ numbers are masked
- They can activate or deactivate their availability
- Manual verification via volunteers is not required - this further decreases call congestion on service providers and allows needy to reach them faster

I am posted in COVID ICU for 12 hours (night shift).
This duty has been extremely brutal for a no. of reasons-
Seeing more young people die.
Have to restrain a lot of them as they're uncooperative or self extubate. They cry and beg us to remove the restrains but we can't
We're just jumping from 1 pt to another throughout the night as they deteriorate.
Staying in ICUs for so long have their own complications. So many pricks, procedures done on them everyday.
I don't know where to prick while taking an ABG sample cause their hands are thrombosed/ edematous.
I go at 8 pm and come back to my room at 9 am. Barely getting half an hour of sleep in between. Losing an average of 5-6 patients per shift (3)

Do not treat yourself with steroids like dexamethasone at home for asymptomatic and mild infections. It will prolong the length of the disease and you won’t be able to recover as easily. It can also add to more variants.

Overlooked—India’s overworked and underpaid crematorium workers, who often face caste-based discrimination as Dalits, are the invisible warriors of India’s #COVID19 crisis. The poorly paid & underappreciated undertakers in the overflowing crematoriums.🧵…
2) The Dalit community is considered the lowest in the Hindu caste system, which is over 3,000 years old and divides Hindus into rigid hierarchical groups dictating their standing in Indian society.
3) They work 12-hour shifts, earning only Rs 10,000 ($134) a month, and can easily be spotted in crematoriums: unlike the families of the deceased, they rarely wear personal protective gear (PPE).

EPIC FAILURE OF INDIA 🇮🇳 LEADERSHIP: “There was little to no action by the [Indian] government. This was a collective and shocking policy failure.” Dr @ashishkjha doesn’t mince words.

2) currently how many likely cases in India 🇮🇳 per day? Likely **13-14 million new cases per day** says renowned epidemiology institute @IHME_UW.

How many cases officially confirmed? Just ~400k per day.

India 🇮🇳 recorded over 400,000 cases for the first time. Just 3 weeks ago, India only logged 100k a day. Quadrupling in 3 weeks is a log, even if it’s a dramatic undercount. The 3523 single day deaths is also a substantial undercount. #COVID19 #CovidIndia…
2) It’s time— to waive the vaccine patents. Time is of the essence. Life is of the essence.
