Aug 7th - I was feverish, had body ache, cold, cough, was sneezing
8th - got a pre-scheduled rapid antibody test done. Negative.
11th - no sense of smell and taste, husband got fever
11th - Got myself tested. Eight days later, today I get the result as Covid19 positive.
#Thread Here's what happened in those eight days. I waited and waited while I saw my husband, who never falls sick otherwise, falling sick and heard my mother fell sick too. Result was expected in 2-5 days.

Karnataka government cancels trains for migrants after talking to builders, says work resumes, why would they want to go back? Ask these labourers living in unhygienic, filthy conditions, without having sent a penny home in 40 days. "In logo sirf kaam pyaara hai, aadmi pyaara nahi hai. Aadmi mar jaaye to parva nahi hai usko"

#Sabarimala #FemaleReporters
Those accusing our organisations of sending female reporters to gain trp, you should know this. When we give them the slightest hint that things are not okay, first thing they tell us is "waha se niklo fataafat (leave from there immediately). Saw a tweet that said only national channel reporters were attacked. Not Malayalam channels (later they were also targetted), because the latter have common sense. Yes, they do. Because they know you well? For those outside, Kerala is/was god's own country full of literates. Hmm.
