9/gpc Intensity of exposure to Corona virus matters. Which is why all household members get sick if they don't take precautions during home quarantine of one member. It's also why bars, party rooms & public bathrooms are most dangerous.
10/gpc This means we will have to follow the five safety precautions mentioned in first tweet & repeated in 🧵, even after new cases decline(ie for 6-12 months) : bit.ly/2FB7mZa
12/gpc As #Air #conditioning generally dries out the recirculated air it's even more important to treat the air with #Ultra #Violet filters which kill Corona Virus in the #AC system. Rooms with individual ACs (or poor circulation)can use ceiling #UV-C lights which also kill virus
13/gpc Unless we learn and apply the lessons outlined 👆🏼in this🧵, the wily👇🏼SARS Coronavirus 2, is going to keep beating us 🙈🙉🙊💩
14/gpc Article👇🏼Supports the conclusions reached in 👆🏼🧵 trib.al/5coOggA
15/gpc #Masks (triple layer cotton mask is good for hot climate, in colder climate a synthetic middle layer may improve protection)
17/gpc #COVID19 #Precautions A nice visual representation of what we have emphasized in 🧵,
18/gpc Such pubs ( in closed, unventilated rooms, packed with unmasked people, in close proximity) are the best way to spread COVID19 and the worst example of (bad) CoViD containment policy, as repeatedly shown across the world 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼
20/gpc #SciMe We must constantly update our #COVID #safety #protocols, as Science learns more about the spread of the novel #SARS #CoronaVirus2:
21/gpc #OpenAir is safer, closed spaces need good #ventilation or good (N95 quality) air #filters + #Masks, when others are present. #Bars+#Parties are most risky as one cannot wear mask while eating/drinking
22/gpc #TTQ #Testing, #tracing & #quarantine is a chain, which is only as good as its weakest link. How to improve it?
24/gpc Virus #quality #Air #filtration is critical to controlling spread of Corona Virus SARS 2, in #closed #spaces where people are eating, drinking, talking w/o masks; Good air circulation of fresh/outside air is needed even if people are working/sitting in same room with masks

#India #Agriculture: Facts, data, hurts ideologues, politicians, intellectual hypocrites, and corrupt vested interests; but it's the only basis for good analysis and effective policy.
State List of Constitution:(14)Agriculture, including agricultural education & research; protection against pests and prevention of plant diseases. (26) Trade and commerce within the State subject to the provisions of Entry 33 of List III=>Stat right to make farmer protection law
#SciMe (=scientific method) 1st the data, 2nd the analysis, 3rd the policy analysis and finally the personal views & judgements (in a democracy citizens have a right to express their views freely)

We must distinguish between the personal & the public. Citizens have freedom to be offended by anything or anyone. In public space the issue is equality under constitutional laws and equal treatment by Govt in implementing these laws, irrespective of religion, gender, caste, ...
2/eq Equality is part of fundamental structure of the Indian constitution, but some provisions violated equality as a temporary measure, which framers expected to be abolished. Such provisions have also led to laws which violate individual equality as perceived in 21st Century.
3/eq 👆🏼unequal laws need to b abolished to attain equality. A clientelist democracy results in biased application of laws in favor of in-groups and against out-groups in some States(police is State subject)! This can be corrected (only) by reform of the Criminal justice system.

@ABlinken as Sec of State is reassuring for cntrys worried about threat and use of force by #CCP #China. With Strategic perspective restored, India-US Military & Geopolitical cooperation can grow faster, tho economic relations will be subject to domestic constraints in 2 cntrys
2/biden My judgement is based on Blinkens pre-election talk in Chatham house & his subsequent statements. Like Indian Govt PotusB believes in "Speaking softly, but carrying a big(ger) stick". Blinken was V clear abt th board spectrum threat frm China's #TechnoAuthoritarian system
3/biden India as a major #TechnoDemocracy(Blinken's terms), should work with EU/Japan/UK/Aus/Can to propose new initiatives to USA, such as #SCRI, which plurilateral coalitions of #TechnoDemocracies can work together on. cc @DrSJaishankar

For a decade or more one has been saying, "stop hyphenating India with Pakistan and start comparing Pakistan with Bangladesh"? With Bangladesh GDP higher than Pakistan's GDP, I still doubt this will happen (Hint: Indian Per capita GDP will again be higher than Bangladesh in 2021)
2/bd #India's per capita GDP will return to a level higher than #Bangladesh by 2021, contrary to the simplistic, straight line growth projections in this 👇🏼 article. Keep a note of All the renowned economists who believed👇🏼, and compare after a year, with what I have said today.
3/bd We first used the example of Bangladesh during 1990s to motivate labor reform; which were critical to promoting labor intensive garment/textile exports. Bangladesh Textile units had 1000s of workers, while our exporters were scared to hire >20, as they couldn't b fired...4/

"Actions speak louder than words" "Speak softly and acquire a bigger stick" Ignore the #DumbExperts who can't even interpret govt policy from its actions and keep asking govt to spell it out for them in words😢: business-standard.com/article/defenc…
2/ The commentariat has difficulty in deriving Govt policy intent from actions, only when the implication is positive, they find it very easy to unambiguously divine Govt's policy intentions from statements of random party people, when the implication is negative!🤓🤡
2/def The 21st C version of #Autonomy: One aspect is to develop mutually beneficial strategic relations directly with US allies, without the intermediation of the USA. This will make them immune from vicissitude of US domestic politics.
