3 years back our Emperor started his crazy experiments with economy by demonetising 86% of the currency notes!
Rest is history!
It was also an experiment to see how much we are conditioned to mutely surrender when our civil liberties and rights are taken away!
While SII and Bharat Biotech, both private firms, struggle to meet India’s domestic requirement besides international obligations, the government is giving no job to 7 public sector firms
History will be kinder to me than the media, says Manmohan
History and India took hardly 7 years to realise it!
“Beds do not treat patients” is an oft-repeated adage in this pandemic but it still rings true.
Makeshift COVID hospitals are useless without medical staff. @RemaNagarajan@twitter.com is spot on here about the deep flaw of "quick fix" solutions for optics!
At the same time, testing and vaccination figures were offered in absolutes, to make report card look better.
If the vaccination figures were shared as a percentage of the population, it would have shown India is far behind nations like Israel, the US, and Brazil, among others
Almost every week at its Covid briefings, the government presented India’s cases and deaths as rates per million of population, instead of absolute numbers.
This was meant to emphasise that the country’s infection and fatality rates are among the lowest in the world.
Epidemiologists say it was probably govt's mixed messaging & optimistic communications that caused general public to underestimate the pandemic, and set stage for the new Covid wave.
#Kerala COVID-19 cases are spiralling up and along with TPR
13835 cases with 17.04% TPR...We are also heading to the scary scenario!
Scary #COVIDSecondWave in India!
Please value your life and others!
Mask up & stay away from all social gatherings to the maximum extent possible.
Systems got overwhelmed is a frightening reality, irrespective of the perception management bulletins!
Please say SAFE!
I told you this a couple of days back...
Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, instead of addressing the lack of hospital beds in the capital, spoke about the imposition of weekend curfew in his press conference held on Thursday
Most Delhi hospitals out of ICU beds for Covid patients, contrary to information given by Delhi govt
EC should ensure that all parties shall be given equitable space in the electronic media & radio, both national & private for propagating their points, rather than silent witness to super spread events.
Of course, wishful thinking
In this era of WhatsApp and social networks, why should we still continue with rallies amidst #COVID19?
Leaders can take their message to masses through innovative means..
Media who gives undue importance to rallies should stop promoting this super spreader events
