Don’t Panic From Covid-19 Says Padma Bhushan Awardee, Dr. D Nageshwar Reddy

Don’t Panic From Covid-19 Says Padma Bhushan Awardee, Dr. D Nageshwar Reddy

At a time of panic and paranoia over the corona fuelled lockdown, the internationally renowned medical expert Dr D Nageshwar Reddy has some good news to share in the hard times. He assures that a COVID-19 outbreak is something which can be easily conquered and there is no reason to panic, as the current lockdown should not prolong beyond 3-4 weeks.

Padma Bhushan Awardee – Dr. D Nageshwar Reddy 

The Hyderabad-based gastroenterologist, who serves as the Chairman of Asian Institute of Gastroenterology, was honoured with Padma Bhushan in 2016. He has shared key findings that will give India a ray of hope. First is an emerging study on genome sequencing and the other is from research on the impact of temperature on the virus. He has elaborated on why he abhors the term social distancing and how staying positive can prove beneficial. Here is a small video with him in an interview with Indian Express. 

COVID-19 & The Risk to India

The virus that originated in the middle of December in China, travelled from Wuhan to Western countries like Italy, USA and Europe. After a lag of 2-3 weeks, it came from these areas to India and this is when we had a gap of 3-4 weeks to study the RNA virus COVID-19. 

This strain seems to be in bats, but there is still no surety about it. A small mutation occurred that allowed it to get transmitted from bats to humans. Sequencing of the whole virus was done in four countries, first in the US, second Italy, third China and fourth India. And when this virus spread to Italy or the US or to India, the genotypes of this virus turned out to be different. In the Indian virus, there is a single mutation occurring in the spike protein of the genome.

In the Italian virus, three mutations have occurred, which makes it more deadly to people. Whereas in India, in the USA and in China, the mortality is only about 2%. There is variation in mortality and infection rate depending upon the genome of the virus. There is a definite difference in the gene sequence in India and we are hoping that will result in the virus being less harmful because its attachment to the cell is not as good.

Impact of Temperature on COVID-19

According to a paper published by MIT, USA, they have explained the heat-sensitivity of this virus. COVID-19 is unable to exist for long periods above 32 degrees. In India, this means that as we progress to May, when the sun is at its peak, the virus transmission may come down. However indoors, where air-conditioning is there or temperature levels are cool, the problem may still persist. So, temperature may play a role, but it might have an effect only after May.

Complete Lockdown Or Just Shut the Red Zones!!!

These are two extreme situations, one is complete lockdown and the other is to keep everything open and test everyone, just like South Korea did. South Korea did extensive testing of the population and isolated the infected ones quickly, which is called the red zone or selective isolation. In India, extensive testing is not feasible, because of the demographics and the scale involved. For us, complete lockdown is a better solution, which is already done. But after the lockdown, the crucial question is what will be our plan-to-action in future? 

In a situation like this, we should follow a more balanced approach. Now that the test kits are becoming cheap and easily available, we should do more testing. People above a certain age and with comorbidities must be extensively checked and isolated. A younger population who do not have comorbidities can be left a little more free after the lockdown is over. In a country like India, it is quite difficult to have a complete lockdown for long periods because social unrest will increase.

Conclusion

Right now, the government’s actions have been positive and this will also lead our government to develop a basic infrastructure to deal with epidemics like this in the long term.

Slamming Rumors – No Plans to Extend Lockdown and E-Pass System.

Slamming Rumors – No Plans to Extend Lockdown and E-Pass System.

The 3 weeks nationwide lockdown that had put many of us in a difficult situation, has been one of the best moves by the Indian government to break the COVID-19 infection cycle. This lockdown from most states, Union Territories and the entire nation, provided a more definite timeline. And people have been quite curious to know about the lockdown extension period, as there have been multiple rumours around.

a child with mother in lockdown of corona virus

Slamming The Rumors

Rajiv Gauba, Cabinet Secretary, clearing all the rumours stated that there are no plans to extend the lockdown period beyond the current 21-day timeline. The lockdown was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for fighting the coronavirus pandemic. The Cabinet Secretary expressed disconcert on many reports revealing that the lockdown could be extended.

The 21-Day Lockdown

The 21-day lockdown came into effect on March 24, 2020. The government had requested all Union Territories and states to strictly enforce the lockdown, because of the huge exodus of migrant workers. A set of measures were supposed to be implemented by local authorities for enforcing the lockdown. This also helped ensure that the migrant workers do not face any difficulties during the period of the lockdown. For now, the 21-day lockdown is until 14th April 2020.

What do you think, not extending the lockdown will break the COVID-19 infection cycle or make it worse?

Janta Curfew – Let Us All Be A Part of It, Because Humanity & India Prevails

After India reported its 4th death due to coronavirus, with total COVID-19 cases rising to 194, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged people to stay indoors and called for a “Janta Curfew” on Sunday 22nd March 2020.

Addressing the nation on the greatest pandemic in decades, Prime Minister Modi in a statement said that the world is passing through a huge crisis, which has engulfed the entire human race. For the last 2 months, we have been watching with concern the news about coronavirus spreading across the world. Therefore, he has requested people to adhere to advisories issued by the Union and the State Governments so as to contain the spread of coronavirus that has affected more countries than World War I and II.

Prime Minister modi on Janta Curfew

PM Narendra Modi Addressed the Nation on Covid19

Janta Curfew

Prime Minister has urged the citizens to observe a ‘Janata Curfew’ on March 22 from 7 am to 9 pm. At 5:00 PM, on the doors, balconies, express, streets or wherever, for 5 minutes, Janta Curfew is a way to express our gratitude for the workers who have been working tirelessly amidst the coronavirus pandemic, despite the threat to their survival, be it medical staff, police, hygiene workers, banks staff and many others. Let’s do it by clapping or by ringing a bell and face the pandemic with collective determination and patience.

PM Modi also announced the setting up of the COVID-19 task force, under Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman for measures in order to lower some of the economic hardships stimulated by the pandemic.

Nine Calls-To-Action By PM Modi

  1. Janta Curfew on 22nd March.
  2. Do not go out until really necessary. Stay indoors. Stay healthy to keep others healthy.
  3. Do not resort to panic buying.
  4. Senior citizens to stay indoors
  5. Social distancing
  6. Avoid elective surgery or routine health check-ups and overburden health services
  7. Asking employers to pay employees in full while they have to stay home and have a humane view of things.
  8. The central government, local state government, and local bodies will continue to work to overcome the global crisis.
  9. Stay away from Rumours

As the spread of coronavirus has climbed in India, the country is headed towards a virtual lockdown with the government restricting the movement of people in several parts and closing public areas to restrict the gathering of more than 10 people. It is the time to give up the attitude that all is well or we would, somehow, escape the disease and become a part of Janta Curfew.

Are you going to be part of Janta Curfew this Sunday, 20 March 2020?

Karnataka Government Shows Green Signal On Reducing Bannerghatta National Park’s Eco Sensitive Zone

Karnataka Government Shows Green Signal On Reducing Bannerghatta National Park’s Eco Sensitive Zone

Experts have put a lot of efforts to save Bannerghatta National Park. Despite of the efforts, a notice has been published on 12th March, 2020. This will allow the government to downsize the eco-sensitive zone (ESZ) in the biological park by 100 square kilometre. Many activists are seeing it as a red flag, but Karnataka government has taken it as a green signal to reduce the eco-sensitive zone. It does not concerns the government as to how the politically driven decision will affect the wildlife?

Bannerghatta National Park News

Bannerghatta Biological Park has a total area of 268.96 sq kms and the government wants to reduce this to 169 sq km. Their intention is to extend the eco sensitive zone to a maximum of 4.5 km from 100m around the boundary.

Many experts have been fighting to preserve the original eco sensitive zone of the park as 268.96 sq kms. But, Union Environment Minister, Prakash Javadekar has accepted Karnataka Chief Minister, B.S. Yediyurappa’s suggestion to reduce the size of the park. It was clearly stated in the decision that development activities were being hampered. 

The Fuming Reaction of Activists Over Eco-Sensitive Zone

Recent developments have got eco experts fuming over the decision. Bhanu Prakash R is the co-ordinator of Bannerghatta Nature Conservation Trust. He has written multiple letters to the State Government and Union Environment Ministry. He has explained about the ramifications that ecology will have, if the eco sensitive zone shrinks.

Even after the High Court’s order to set up a committee for the eco sensitive zone to monitor, the state government has not changed the opinion. This has led to uncontrolled land use in the region.

Regardless of many letters sent explaining facts and realities, the eco-sensitive zone will be reduced to favour land mining mafia. Bhanu Prakash R said, “The decision has been taken without considering any scientific study in this matter.”

Government Ignoring Eco-Initiatives & Supporting Land Mafias

Before the decision for eco sensitive zone came in, many farmers described that land mafias were constantly pressurising them to give away their lands at throwaway prices. Recently, BJP government inducted Anand Singh, the Minister of Forest. He was accused of 15 cases, including offenses under Karnataka Forest Act.

Vijay Nishanth, founder of Project Vruksha has criticised the government. He has remarked that the Karnataka government is clearly supporting the mining industries. Vijay Nishanth said, ” We might have to start looking at the legal options as the last resort”.

Bengaluru Food Street, VV Puram Closed Temporarily

The coronavirus outbreak continues to spread with nearly 145,384 confirmed cases globally and more than 81 confirmed cases in India. With this, people are increasingly wondering how COVID-19 might affect our eating habits, food supply and restaurants. If you have been wondering whether to stay home from restaurants or if any foods are unsafe, here’s what you need to know.

VV Puram food street Closed Temporarily Due to Coronavirus Pandemic

One of the most popular food street joints in Bangalore, VV Puram is closed for a couple of days. More than 20 vendors selling South Indian, North Indian and Chinese delicacies under Bengaluru Food Street Varthakara Okkuta have voluntarily decided to temporarily close the food stalls. Later, Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) also supported the decision of shutting down the popular Food Street. The decision came up as a precautionary measure in order to clean and renovate the shops. It is also a preventative action to avoid spreading Cholera and Coronavirus.

No “If”, But “When”

The decision taken by the local Union and the vendors is an anticipatory action in order to be safe. However, it would lead to drastic decline in the business and also leave many of their employees jobless amid the coronavirus pandemic. But most of us, for whom the Bangalore Food Street is the favourite food joint, are desperately waiting for the place to be live again. The local Union, Bengaluru Food Street Varthakara Okkuta is still unsure of what will happen next. Until then, Coronavirus has left most of the Bangaloreans house arrested.

The Escape Room – Are You Ready For The Real Time Adventure Game?

The Escape Room – Are You Ready For The Real Time Adventure Game?

Imagine yourself in a room with doors locked, clock ticking, an anonymous voice from somewhere giving you a clue and you trying hard to escape from the room in given time!!! Is it giving you the creeps already? Do you want to know what is it like to take on the challenge of an escape room? 

Well, if your friends have been talking about escape rooms and you’re still wondering what in the world they are and what is the deal about them, here ends your search.

Escape Rooms – The Real Time Adventure Game

Escape rooms are the hottest trends, these days. Groups of people gather in a themed room, where they are given a clue to get started, complete the mission and “escape” the room.

A successful escape requires people to find hidden clues and solve challenging puzzles throughout the room. So, imagine yourself taking a look underneath the rug or quickly sift through the books on the shelves, or may be take a closer look at the paintings on the wall. You may even find a string of numbers to open a combination lock or a good old-fashioned key for a padlock.

Everywhere you look is like a riddle waiting to be solved or a potential clue to get out of an “Escape Room”. But the deal is, from the moment you enter, you just have one hour to find clues and solve escape the room puzzle games before the time is up. Sounds interesting, right!!!

Origin

The real time adventure game originated in Japan in 2007, where online game developers created the realistic escape rooms. Today their popularity has quickly spread throughout Asia, Europe and the U.S. The game is getting in on the live action with hundreds of themed rooms across the country and especially Bangalore. So, Bangaloreans, expect to see pirate ships, prison cells, theatres, nuclear power plants, dig sites, and much more.

Why are Escape Rooms Becoming So Popular?

This game is a whole new way of experiencing storytelling. It is like combining a social activity with interactive adventures and challenging puzzles. Players are immersed in an entirely different world with storylines that feel like a blockbuster movie. And that’s what makes them so addicting.

The Team Building Activity

If you think this is just for fun, then let me tell you, beating an escape room is all about teamwork, creativity, speed, and patience. Escape rooms are amazing experiences to share with people, as they work together to discover clues to escape out of the room, crack puzzles, and accomplish their ultimate goal of getting out of it in time.

And even if they don’t actually get out of the room, the whole team will have a blast. Bangaloreans can take back home some amazing memories to share for a long time. So, you can either bring a large group to an escape game, or you can have a wonderful time by yourself. You can be put in any escape game location with strangers who will quickly become teammates or may become friends for life.

Mr Yediyurappa, who was sworn in as Chief Minister in July last year, after the dramatic fall of the 14-month-old Congress-Janata Dal Secular coalition government, began by praising some of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s policies.

Following this the veteran BJP leader highlighted shortfall in funds the state had expected from the centre, with specific focus on the state’s share in central taxes under the 15th Finance Commission; this had reduced funding by more than Rs 8,000 crores.

A further Rs 11,000 crores is pending from GST (goods and services tax) collection by the centre; states had been promised compensation for a period of five years after GST was implemented in 2017 due to a loss of revenue. The shortfall comes despite the centre collecting over Rs 1 lakh crores in December, the fifth time it had crossed that mark in 2019.

Having raised these financial challenges at the start of his speech, the Chief Minister then revealed his plans for the farm sector, which was hit by both floods and drought last year.

In December last year the state government sent the centre an estimate of Rs 35,161 crores for damages from floods alone. The BJP government in the state was criticised by the opposition after PM Modi and the BJP-led centre were seen to be slow in responding.

BS Yediyurappa said agriculture and rehabilitation for those hit by floods will be top priority and acknowledged financial constraints this fiscal.
