In its plea, it is learnt #WhatsApp is invoking the 2017 Justice KS Puttaswamy vs Union Of India case to argue that the traceability provision is unconstitutional and against people’s fundamental right to #privacy as underlined by the SC decision…
It should be noted that this rule will impact most messaging apps such as #Signal, #Telegram, Snapchat, Wire and others. Signal is completely end-to-end encrypted (E2E) and, in fact, WhatsApp relies on the Signal protocol for its own encryption. Image

An analysis of real-world data from the UK details the effectiveness of Pfizer & #AstraZeneca vaccines against two variants of the #SARSCoV2 coronavirus: one, denoted as B.1.1.7, with its origins in Kent, UK, and the second, denoted as B.1.617.2, that was first detected in India.
Indian public policy has massive interest in this information since the broader B.1.617 variant is expected to, if it has not already, become the dominant strain of the disease within the population in India.
Efficacy data for interdose duration for some of the groups is:
2-dose efficacy with 12 weeks gap: 80%
The trial found that a single-dose had a similar efficacy for up to 90 days.

After reaching a high of 4.14 lakh last Thursday, the daily cases has dropped significantly in the last 1 week. This is not happening for the first time. After crossing 4 lakh mark for the first time on April 30, the case count had gone down for a few days, before jumping again. Image
