Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

^^ At lease they are doing something. Hopefully the plans will work, but nothing ever goes too smoothly in India though . I am not at all expecting this to go through smoothly. :p :p Though my concerns are not at all related to cold chains and logistics. They will manage that somehow. Even with all...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

It looks like there won't be a vaccine problem (assuming that the Oxford vaccine will show similar efficacy as Moderna and Pfizer). How fast people can be vaccinated is the issue now. Move heaven and earth to make it faster, because otherwise, everybody else around the world will be free of it by 2...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

No leadership anywhere....why can't they increase the testing....What happened to feluda? Wasn't it supposed to be in markets a week back. Why did they give the contract to only one company. When you tout a particular test as game changer why not go for multiple companies and make them produce in mo...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

With Feluda coming into the market with in 2 days(if reports are to be believed), wonder how much of a change it will bring in. Are the states prepared for it? ICMR has said that no RT PCR test is required after this unlike antigen tests, so this can actually completely replace the antigen tests. Th...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Tamil Nadu's Death count is still high especially compared to AP. Is it because of their non use of antigen tests? May be with feluda coming they will change their mind.
