Hello, after 2 months India has resumed commercial #aviation

My employer has asked me to fly from @DelhiAirport to @BLRAirport and back

I will be tweeting about #NewNormal of flying post during #COVID__19

DEL wears a deserted look with barely 14 flights an hour
Mostly people who have essential needs are taking the flight very cautiously

Suraj, from Noida has an urgent surgery that needs to be done at Bangalore & has covered himself in a hazmet suit

#aviation during #COVID__19
Airlines have placed agents so that you don't get confused about the gate number

Segregation is essential to maintain #SocialDistancing

As maddening is the crowd at Pune's Laxmi Road, as much as I hate the fact that parking is never available here, this emptiness of the road just didn't seem right.
Some shops have opened today, but for now, the shopkeepers are only waiting...

#pune #Covid_19 #Lockdown4
Have you ever seen #Tulshibaug this empty? For 1st time in10 years that I didn't see a single person inside. It seems to have been converted into some sort of parking lot

Have the markets in your cities/towns opened? What's their condition?
#lockdown #Covid_19 #shopping #market
Now that the non-essential standalone shops have opened, including those of clothes, do you feel safe to go out and buy the things that you might need, while also following proper #Social_Distancing norms?

OK I would like to make couple points on remdesivir treatment for #COVID19


First For context please read this piece summarizing the remdesivir trials…
1/ The US trial shows Remdesivir improves time to recovery from 14 days to 11 day & may reduce mortality whereas the Chinese trial (underpowered) shows no benefit. In my view Remdesivir may improve patients outcomes but clearly not the silver bullet or knockout effect as expected
2/ While we need more drugs to combat the infection, I really can't see a silver bullet drug coming through for #COVID19. It will be series of drugs with more or less effects on #SARS_CoV2 but expecting the miracle drug as AZT was for HIV is way overstated in my view.

1/According to the Brigham Young University survey, loneliness is a bigger cause of early death than obesity. Being aware of obesity death numbers which are mind-blowing,
2/what happens when people with smaller homes especially in Europe can only travel from bed to sofa and sofa to bed and loneliness and obesity both together act as the worst poison that they have to take every hour and day and week and months and who knows for how long?

It has been determined there are 3 types of #COVIDー19, of those, China had both types A and B strains. Of those 2 strains type B seems the more deadly. In Jan., the Wuhan nurse’s posting describes a mutation and a doctor posted he had the “fall down one”, a reference to a..
separate pathology from what would have been the original virus, type A. Here are examples of the “fall down one”. Flat, stiff, sometimes convulsed. The posture is normally indicative of neurological damage. The US has type A, and could be the reason we haven’t seen this here, at
least we haven’t, yet. Type B is in South America and in Canada. Video from Ecuador has shown people passing out in the streets, some left where they’ve dropped. From the Wuhan nurses description we’re fortunate. We have the less virulent version of #coronavirus. We could be..

A question I often get. Why Lupus patients that have taken Hydroxychloroquine for years have no side effects whereas severe adverse cardiac side effects are described #COVID19 patients under hydroxychloroquine treatment? Let's have a closer look
Let's start with #COVID19. Does #COVID19 causes cardiac effects? The answer is yes from 2 published surveys from Wuhan hospitals. First one reports on 416 hospitalized patients -> 19.7% with myocardial injury + ⬆️cardiac troponin & high mortality rate 51%…
The second paper shows similar observation on 187 hospitalized patients -> 27% had cardiac injury with again elevation of cardiac troponin and increase mortality rate at 59%. In short #COVID19 leads to significant cardiac injury but these are severe cases…

Cities are closing streets to cars, opening them to walking + cycling to enable #SocialDistancingNow in our urban spaces. With thanks to @Lelievre_Adrien here is a massive list of them. Shamefully NONE in the UK @Heidi_LDN @willnorman @AndyBurnhamGM @GreenJennyJones 1/12

Story #Social_Distancing
5½yrs we were like hum Pyala hum Niwala, then practice social life, love lives, marriages.
And then we again came united by a group of our batch on wats ap But something is odd
Now we are calling one another Dr. instead of santy, mirchi abhya, D, Poo etc
Now we r not discussing now we r arguing.
In past when we quarel nd want to give proof ' batau kya, tere ko proof du kya' my friend replied 'leave yarr mujhko nahi dekhna'.
Today they r saying forward me link.

Dear Lagosians, yesterday I announced the discharge of one more patient from our Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba.

Today, I am happy to inform you that five more patients comprising two males and three females including a 10 year old girl have tested negative twice to #COVID19
These 5 patients have been discharged to reunite with their families. This brings to a total of 29, the number of patients who have fully recovered and have been discharged from our facility at Yaba.
Although, there is a strong indication that the State is winning the battle against #COVID19, it is imperative that we remain steadfast to curtail the spread.

I strongly advise that we continue to observe #Social_Distancing. Let us #StayHomeStaySafe to #SaveLives

An update on #COVID19 pandemics in Australia (#covid19australia) Today detected cases 4864 (+302) Recovered 416( +61) unreliable (NSW figures missing) Death (+2). Looks like we are towards the end of exponential state with now doubling time = 7 days. Hope this trend continues
Comparison to different countries (adjusted by capita) for detected cases and death: We are following Korea, which is great. I think the picture will get clearer in the next few days
I can see at state level we are reaching the end of the exponential state for now all states. However adjusted per capita, this looks less obvious to me for SA, QLD, VIC and WA

Italy, UK, Spain, France took part in poignant clapping tributes. They went to their doorsteps & windows outpouring gratitude. Healthcare workers were applauded worldwide.
As millions of people were in voluntary isolation or lockdown, the clapping was a sign of raised spirits/1
On the other hand, Brazil erupted to the sound of banging pots and pans and shouts of "Bolsonaro out!" with housebound protesters expressing their anger toward the President. This was their way of un-bottling their pent-up frustration./2
In India, after indulging in all important events of kemcho Trump, Delhi riots, MP Govt toppling, (I might have missed out a few) Modi gave a 29 minute speech on #coronaviruspandemic urging people to express gratitude thru #ThaliBajao. Gratitude to whom??? Noone asked/3

Vedic perspective on the current #COVID19outbreak in a series of tweets:
From day one #Corona virus had the power to close places of worship that may have never before closed doors in centuries.
#LockdownNow #StayHome #Social_Distancing #coronaupdatesindia #COVIDIOTS Image
Because these venues were where people seek help for their life problems from God, atheists smugly mock, “God has betrayed His people by retreating, & so now they run to health care workers who are risking their own lives to protect the faithless & faithful”. Image
On the other hand, theists claim this chaos to be the wrath of God for undisciplined and sinful lives. They profess this to be a small sample of the harsher punishments yet to come lest human beings learn their lessons. Image

@ScottMorrisonMP @AlboMP @abcnews @andrewprobyn @vanOnselenP @PatsKarvelas While it's clear this Virus is surging globally,3 places on the planet could make what we've seen so far look like a 24hr sniffle. Africa, India & USA!Massive populations,pathetic infrastructure& resourses
In particular, very late to the party, @realDonaldTrump spewing bullshit, not even #Social_Distancing at his #Pressers ffs! Add to that the fact that USA is gripped &/or strangled by their ridiculous & deluded #Religious beliefs. They think #God is protecting them! Scary!
Closer to home,add another massively populated Third World country with extreme #Religious beliefs - #Indonesia! 260+ million people on a bunch of small islands, no way they're gonna control the spread!#Phillipines also,another crazy regime!This #Pandemic is just getting started!

Step 4. Godi media started getting orgasms about Modi's 14 hour #JantaCurfew killing all '12 hour old' #coronavirus in India.
Step 5. WA messages of Modi's masterstroke in full swing urging all to make the event a huge success.
Step 6. Strict Curfew took place during the day.
Step 7. Celebrities, industrialists, BJP leaders, police officials took part in #ThaliBajao event which was broadcasted all over.
Step 8. The whole of India went into a frenzy, a celebration, group gatherings on streets as #Social_Distancing went for a toss.

Reflections on #JantaCurfew and why it was a missed opportunity. It COULD have been an opportunity for people to understand and practice the principle of #Social_Distancing. Instead you had crowds celebrating the defeat of Corona at the hands of Modi ji. Why this fiasco?
Modi didn't use facts, logic, persuasion, empathy combined with a relief package to make it possible for all to actually practice #Social_Distancing. Instead he and the BJP relied on their usual staple - blind faith in the Great Leader, in a ritual, WA fake news.
The result was predictable. People thought Modi ji wanted a grand show of support which would miraculously chase away Corona - and they gave it to him. Not their fault. This fault rests with the leaders who discourage people from understanding principles & thinking for themselves
