Very serious piece of horrid news:

The doctors here have been given extremely unsafe, torn Personal Protection Equipments (PPEs) compelled to work in dangerous condition #COVID2019 #Thread @CMOMaharashtra (1)
#COVID19 symptomic cases are being mixed with other patients, of course without their knowledge. (Image attached)
Maharashtra health minister Rajesh Tope denied even the count of positive patients which is 41 (till 9pm, April 3).
Two doctors, working here alleged that here (2)
the AMO, rather than sending the throat and nasal swabs (samples) twice a day, is asking nurses to keep it in refrigerator and sends samples once in 2 days so that count of cases can be kept low. This is multiplying the risk of exposure for medical staff and patients both

It's hard to capture the absence of activity. How do you show something that is missing? These wonderful @reuters pictures do just that.

Thread (1/7): So I tried to get tested for #COVID19. Really. I have no symptoms, but wanted to be sure.

I got off a flight from Amsterdam yesterday at 0100, and took a cab straight to Kasturba Hospital in #Mumbai, the only authorized #coronavirus test center in the city.
(2/7) They said it was open 24 by 7. I thought it'd be bustling.

It was dark & deserted. After some looking, found a counter where I paid Rs. 10 to a gent for an appointment, and walked over to the OPD where a doctor woke up, put on a mask, and talked to me.
(3/7) He asked me what I wanted. I said "to be tested for #Corona virus". He asked if I had any symptoms. I said no, but I wanted to be sure.

I had my luggage with me, so he asked me where I was coming from. I said "#Netherlands".

Hello! I'm @busydot and I am part of @povmumbai, a feminist non-profit in #Mumbai. We work at the intersection of gender sexuality and digital technology, and today I'm going to tweet about data through a feminist lens.
@busydot @povmumbai So much to say, so little time. :) I'm going to dive deep into looking at how women's bodies have become part and parcel of digital data collection and processing. Think menstrual apps, period trackers, fertility apps, pregnancy apps.
@busydot @povmumbai In her @deepdives essay, Data Bleeding Everywhere, @nuqsh explores period trackers from the perspectives of women and girls using them. It's a fascinating exploration and here's what she finds.โ€ฆ

Welcome to #Mumbai @atherenergy!
Finally a test ride after years of wait; yes, following you folks since 2015 :)

Canโ€™t wait for 28th Jan for the #Ather 450X!

Best wishes to everyone for the launch!

Iโ€™ve enough to drag me for next 10 days ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜…
@atherenergy As a EV rider since 2015, here's my take on Ather 450 after today's test ride. My first EV scooter was Hero Electric Photon. And currently own the Ampere Reo.
@atherenergy Photon was victim of deadly rat infestation which damaged its controller and batteries to a point that getting the Reo in exchange was better option.

As I said in my apology today for a transphobic tweet in 2011, Iโ€™ve learned a lot since then and I want to acknowledge just how much of my learning is thanks to #LGBTQ activists. In 2015, I was on a panel with Germaine Greer at #Mumbai Litfest where I disagreed with her ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ
As I said in my tweets at the time, much of my learning came from #LGBTQ activism in #India. When Greer made transphobic remarks at our joint session in #Mumbai, I disagreed and I remember the audience also disagreed. I also learned in 2015 to separate trans and woman.
I learned to put a space in between trans and woman and ways to show solidarity with communities who are subjected to multiple oppressions.
