Oh gosh... This is all such a mess. Going to get a vaccine shot and getting Covid from the hospital is just horrible.

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

So, +400.8K was the final today. It will go as 403.8K, officially, because of the 3K earlier cases that were added in MAH. But today's case additions were from 2136K tests at 18.77% positivity. The 3-day average of positivity has fallen for three consecutive days from 19.01 to 18.5 now. That is a go...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

^^^ It's a feeding frenzy. Just don't read it. The sad thing is that it is pretty much impossible to refute the crap these people write. Because none of these critics know even the basics of anything. It is like Modi and some policies have caused the second wave and the deaths. If the whole country'...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

I received the following note from a journalist friend. He's a rabidly anti-Modi left winger, so i take it with a large pinch of salt. Still I take his point about too many committees. "We can have any number of committees, but there must be utter chaos in the admin. As Kejriwal said in the confere...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

So far it is +394.5 today, as we await the Jharkhand numbers. Almost the same as yesterday. There is actually a 3K more in Maharashtra but that is conciliation of cases from earlier. Looks like a 402K again. That will actually go as a drop from yesterday, as yesterday total officially in 406.9K than...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Meanwhile, it seems yesterday's total was more by 5K. That is because Telengana suddenly started reporting by 8 pm. That is what they did early last year and then one fine day they didn't send the report and said they will only report the NEXT day. So that used to come at 1 or 2 am in the morning, a...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

The journalist friend is right that Dr. Kang should be in the Government's task force. Actually I believe she does kinda get along with the Government. My understanding is that they had indeed relied on her earlier on (I may be wrong). She gets used by the press because she seems to be an academic t...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Finally this happened! But it took 14 months into the pandemic, 2 months into the massive second wave, and it was done by the Supreme Court ... NOT by Mr. Narendra (Atma Nirbhar) Modi. Bewildering lack of visible leadership, regular direct communication to the nation, and tangible plan from the cou...

^^^ I didn't know about him, but Om Shanthi to him. That is a true activist. Anybody who had the guts to take down a Jayalalitha poster in Chennai deserves special consideration for bravery in Vaikuntam by Lord Vishnu whose feet he must be trying to reach or has reached.

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Ladkah update: About 4000+ cases till a week ago in the new wave. 21 deaths so far. CFR at around 0.5% while they had 1.30 in the first wave. About 60% (my estimate) of the older folks vaccinated has indeed helped. India's CFR in the second wave is around 1.00% Lakshadweep update: About 2100 cases i...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

So we finish with +401.3K... Less than last Saturday's 402K, so the 7-day average will drop (though slightly) for the first time in 85 days! (Man, has it been that long?)... It may flip for a couple of days and rise slightly because of the holiday testing rates last weekend (May 1st) but should be d...
