Had a few forwards about this earlier. It will be fine
Thanks, this is what i want to see in this discussion. Official documents.Anyone read this document?
Thopughts? comments? I felt the document was well thought out and what we can expect from the government in case of a large outbreak
The voltage increased from 228v to 235v in my area around the 9pm mark. Forget to check frequency. I was running on UPS since 8pm.Had a few forwards about this earlier. It will be fine
People are treating this like Diwali. We live in a confederacy of dunces.Firecracker, Rockets anar going on to bust Covid's ass. I live in a brain dead society
Just watched his today's press-brief.Wow!! ICMR is trying to establish smoking and chewing tobacco with the spread the virus ( disgusting habits for sure, and I smoke)
Those who dedicated their lives for this achievement will never accept it.India has become the first 4th world country.
Count it as a salient feature of this new 4th world country.Wow!! India celebrated like Diwali!! We all just watched it on a Bengali news channel. People here couldn't believe it, since they don't understand Bengali.
Unbelievable...now we are celebrating death with fireworks!!
Even the railways has gotten into the businessMeanwhile, what the government and companies are doing, https://www.cnbctv18.com/healthcare...or-manufacturing-to-airlift-parts-5605521.htm
the government is planning to airlift critical ventilator components from Shanghai in China, which is one of the key component suppliers to Indian ventilator manufacturers. A special flight to airlift components will be arranged in 2-4 days and manufacturers have to ask to co-ordinate with component vendors and arrange supplies in Shanghai.
Apart from logistics support, the government has fast-tracked all approval processes and also relaxed the criteria required to be fulfilled to secure a government order. Manufacturers having an installed base of 100 ventilators and 2 years of operations will be eligible to secure orders
As of now, two consortium's have secured government orders for 40,000 ventilators: Bharat Electronic Ltd along with Mysuru based Skanray Technologies has received the order to manufacture 30,000 ventilators. The second order for 10,000 ventilators has been given to the consortium of Maruti Suzuki and Noida based ventilator maker AgVa Healthcare
To expand manufacturing bases, the government has asked auto manufacturers to step in and experts say established ventilator makers will giving designs and validation.
Skanray is in the process of clinically validating the respirator that Mahindra and Mahindra have designed and says it can be used to sustain patients in an extreme emergency.
The government has also promised to assist these smaller manufacturers to secure finance by making advance payments. Prof Diwakar Vaish, Founder of AgVa Healthcare said, “We have received a written commitment from government that 25 percent of our order value will be paid in advance. This will be a huge help in working capital.” Skanray has received a similar advance payment commitment.
AgVa that has partnered with Maruti Suzuki is also in talks with government-owned Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd for a similar tie-up. “Our first line in the facility that Maruti is arranging may start manufacturing in 1-2 days. When BHEL also comes on board, we plan to produce 900 ventilators in a single day in 3 parallel lines.” Our ventilators designs are already approved and validated."
Agva is a start up using a tablet or phone with their app to be the brains of the machine. While the mysore based Skanray which has worldwide presence through various acquisitions makes the more sophisticated ICU type ventilators.
DRDO is using all of its resources to make PPE and N99 masks, since some of materials still come from china, DRDO is using a sealant for PPE which it used in submarine applications instead of the seaming Tapes typically come from china. They can make 7000 suits a day and will ramp it up in coming days.
N99, is being made on war footing using nano technology. A total of 10,000 masks have already been made and soon per day production will be extended to 20,000.
Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has developed a bio suit to keep the medical, ppib.gov.in
We need to close that gap. Some howIndia might need anywhere between 110,000-220,000 ventilators by May 15 in the worst-case scenario. The number of ventilators today available in the country is a maximum of 57,000 and come with a cost of Rs 5-Rs 15 lakh, according to a Brookings report.
If you have pre existing conditions then yes.Yeah but the guy is 70+ years old. COVID has been the grim reaper so far for that demographic.
Not 4th. It's 1000th or even lower. Lower than Somalia or any such third class warn torn country.Wow!! ICMR is trying to establish smoking and chewing tobacco with the spread the virus ( disgusting habits for sure, and I smoke)
Yeah! To support an idiot's idea, you have to turn off lights and run the ceiling fans.
India has become the first 4th world country.
Luv Agarwal's speech and posture is a torture to watch.
I realize this is directed to another member, but here's my take: The author is not a physician or related to medicine/virology. There are no references in that article. All the talk about covid binding to hemoglobin is based on computer simulations. Chloroquine is/was considered effective against coronavirus due to its activity against viral replication. Chloroquine is not a safe drug and cannot cure covid.@red dragon , what do you think of this, http://web.archive.org/web/20200405...ht-have-finally-found-its-secret-91182386efcb
The exact mechanism of antiviral intervention by chloroquine is not yet elucidated but is possibly a multitarget mechanism, depending on the time point at which the drug is added. When added during and shortly after infection, chloroquine probably affects the endosome-mediated fusion, and when the drug is given after this first target, it can still act on later stages of the viral life cycle, as reported for other viruses ..
...Thus, chloroquine appears to act only on the entry of HCoV-OC43 and not on the later stages of the replication cycle.
This is complete bullshit. I am seeing ARDS ( which is basically non cardiogenic pulmonary edema) and pneumonitis every single day.@red dragon , what do you think of this, http://web.archive.org/web/20200405...ht-have-finally-found-its-secret-91182386efcb
What about thisThis is complete bullshit. I am seeing ARDS ( which is basically non cardiogenic pulmonary edema) and pneumonitis every single day.
The mechanism of lung damage is possibly autoimmune mediated.
His explanation for MOA is completely wrong. HCQS increases intracellular zinc, which inhibits the first stage of reverse transcriptase.
