Arun Kumar: You are absolutely right. I agree with Dr. John on masks, incomes for people to survive. What he is also pointing out is that our public health system is broken, not able to take care of the poor. For instance, rural and semi-rural areas have very poor facilities, and as the disease spreads there, the death rate could go up. What we needed to do was focus on building up our health infrastructure rapidly - doctors, nurses, testing. We have never paid attention to social infrastructure, on education, health, drinking water, etc and that’s why we are facing the problem, and could not implement the lockdown. Unlike China which could implement and control it and within three months there were no reports of fresh disease. It is because of the failure of governance, that we could not implement the lockdown better. We are paying for what we have not done for the past 70 years. I see the divide between the organised and unorganised sectors. The organised sector can use … [Read more...] about Can India’s workforce have a safe return to business?

Ultimately though, is all this brouhaha over India's contact tracing app more noise than substance since it ended up being open source and optional? Maybe. But consider these facts. Narendra Modi was Chief Minister of the state of Gujarat when over 2,100 Muslims were slaughtered in an orchestrated pogrom. For someone like Modi who has tight control over practically every organ of his administration, it would have been laughably impossible for him -- and his police force -- to not be aware of the bloodletting that took place over a span of many days all across the state. … [Read more...] about India’s contact tracing app made open source, but will this thwart a surveillance state?
NEW DELHI: Bihar’s Muzaffarpur district, which hit national headlines last year for the death of over 150 children from Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES), is now bracing to face the double onslaught of AES and Covid-19. From zero cases of Covid till May 8, the district has seen a steady rise in cases with the return of migrants. Even before that, there were cases of AES and five children have died so far. All cases of Covid and AES are being treated in the government-run Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital (SKMCH). With all Covid cases detected so far being totally asymptomatic, SKMCH doctors are more worried about AES as there has been a steady stream of cases since the first death of a three-year old on March 27. So far, 34 cases have been brought to the hospital. The district now has 46 Covid cases, but just five are over 40 years. “They have no symptoms at all and don’t need any treatment, not even a paracetamol. So they have merely been kept under … [Read more...] about For Muzaffarpur, child-killer disease a bigger scare even in Covid times
