Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Can you believe that we had only a bit less than +10K cases today?... Only +9972 today... From about 705K tests at 1.42% positivity... I never thought we would go below 1.5%... Hell, I never thought we would get below 4 percent, at one point!... We had our lowest death total of 137 today too. Outsid...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Of course, the bad boy, Maharashtra, is at it again... They have not done any vaccinations for two days, citing some technical glitch in the national vaccine portal system. Not sure why other states don't have a problem but Maharashtra has. They said something like there needs to be a way to do pape...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Looks like 148,266 inoculations were done today by 5 pm. That just won't do, Charlie. We are up to 381K so far. This better go up a lot more. (Not sure how it is 381K... It was 224K yesterday, and it is 148K today; so it should be 372K... Oh well; things are still in a bit flux on data reporting) He...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Jay, unfortunately, the rich and connected will get the vaccine first unlike the categories you mentioned. Some real and some propaganda based hesitancy will also keep the categories you mentioned away initially. Let’s see. I think India thinks the epidemic is largely over due to the low numbers we...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

What about those who already have been infected in last 6 months and have required antibodies. There will be a whole lot of them including those who were never counted in positives as they never got themselves tested. Good point. Based on sero-surveys, anywhere from 10% to 40% of Indians may alread...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Jay, in your calculations, are you counting the whole population to reach a target, or excluding children, say below 5 years old? Oh, you did say 332 million @25%. I think you should exclude at least 200 million from the total population. I was using the whole population. You're right that children...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

And a nice TOI editorial But the targeted 5000 sites with 100 shots a day, just will not do. That is still half a million (500K) shots a day (even if all the scheduled people show up; probably not. Count 400K). We need at least 4 or 5 times as many, to get 1350 million people vaccinated in a couple ...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

A fairly good report on the TN situation in TOI - Low volunteer turnout continues on Day 2 . Healthcare workers are just not turning up to take the shots, it seems. Jeez. People! There are a lot of folks out there who are praying to get vaccinated soon. This is crazy. Kudos go to the Tamil Nadu Covi...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

FYI Insights from a Pan India Sero-Epidemiological survey (Phenome-India Cohort) for SARS-CoV2 This was quite an interesting study. I took a quick look at the paper too. Here is a summary from Indian Express - Seropositivity for COVID-19 found to be lesser in smokers, vegetarians: CSIR survey Weird...
