I expect this lock down to be lifted after 21 days as the government cannot admit it screwed up. What should have been done has been brought up many times in this thread regarding preparing and planning before implementing. But cannot undo this now.
India sent several tons of medical supply including PPE to china in the beginning of their spread in china. This is according to chinese government.We don't manufacture PPE, everything we have is from US, Germany or China. However we give it to other countries who ask for help. India didn't.
I have seen doctors here in my street go from Mauthi 800 in 90s, Honda city hyundai accent in late 90s, octavia/civic class vehicles in late 2000s and 25Lakh plus vehicles in the last 5 years. So clearly it depends on how you spend your money.I am mostly aware of situation of doctors here, Some of the good ones have left, who stayed behind are yet to see better days mostly financially. In 2014 1.5-2L/month income was sufficient in an inexpensive city like kolkata. Now most of them are earning around 2.5L-3L/month, yet they are having a hard time financially. I do not understand how the economy is getting better.
Indias problem is its population. Also the current generations don't save much and have huge credit card bills.India`s progress seems great on paper, but even as Indian, it was difficult for me to feel.
I don`t think India will be able to sustain this 21 days. Let`s see how many private companies can pay salaries. I know of one huge private hospital ( industry which has suffered considerably less) unable to pay full salaries to doctors for the month of February!!
Its going as fast at any other country, granted our ventilator manufactures are the basic type, but say a healthy person or a rich or influnetial personsl demands a ventilator out of fear, those cheap ventilators can come in handy.How's India's ventilator project going? Any prototype yet? What about the elusive 1200Rs.kit?
How much time does it take to rebrand old Siemens ventilators?
Every country wasn't prepared, I seriously doubt chinese claims of only so many deaths. But they have much more heavy handed approach of the military sealing of the city.I expect this lock down to be lifted after 21 days as the government cannot admit it screwed up. What should have been done has been brought up many times in this thread regarding preparing and planning before implementing. But cannot undo this now.

Are you able to conduct a civil conversation without name calling ? You are quick to rush to judgement on people you do not know at all.Erodov refugee - but I liked the way you did this - remember Amit Malviya and his team members - probably you should join in too. Hatemongers - when you Bhatks don't have anything to react or respond too - you guys take this route and sometimes it goes below the waistline or causes verbal diarrhea.
Double rations, double benefits to the needy for three months. What does that tell you ?Awesome, another Nostradamus in making.. you should consider it as a side business.
What point do you want to make here. He's covering a number of things and i don't even know why NK is relevant.
Can you please confirm this news. I am finding it hard to believe.
Sorry, I didn't know anything about it. I can ask someone in Serbia. But isn't it strange? What exactly can India send? Hope it's not PPE.Just gloves.
You did the same when you ran out of comments for a moment and called the account as proxy. It tell all the story what kind of audit you're talking aboutYou are quick to rush to judgement on people you do not know at all.
Exactly an old guard like you is not making sense at all. Let others do this jobThis place needs new blood and fresh meat to chew on
Bring in some list or article stating migrants workers' are getting all of this too. We can talk about it once that list comes and not the Anand Vihar like Incident.Double rations, double benefits to the needy for three months. What does that tell you ?
The curious thing ? British & Indian PM make a speech on the same day about a lock down of similar duration with similar conditions.
Obviously, this entire planning of South Korea got the mention and how they tackled the situation of CV. I don't recall any planning did before announcing the lockdown.What point do you want to make here. He's covering a number of things and i don't even know why NK is relevant.
Before you brag about this; just check the ground situation about Medical Staff and Cops, even if they go home - they meet their family as if they already under isolation. Imagine what they must be going through and they're continue to support the government (not to mention that public also comes in too for the support). Where do all this come in the background part you mentioned. Our friend @red dragon mentioned about this situation multiple times but his points were simply ignored because of ground situation.Told you things were moving in the background. Whatever people complain about today is addressed a few days later
Could the preparations be handled better by the government - May beI expect this lock down to be lifted after 21 days as the government cannot admit it screwed up. What should have been done has been brought up many times in this thread regarding preparing and planning before implementing. But cannot undo this now.
very well said my friend. We can not correct a mistake by a mistake. Lets stay at home during Lockdown and help others (in the form of any means) - stay positive and stay responsible and pray for the recovery of those who either fighting this (like doctors) or for those who got infected and in danger. That's the least thing we have under control.You cannot correct a mistake by a mistake
There was one theory floating around, however everything is theory and in vitro studies under controlled environment. I honestly do not know. May be a microbiologist can help.Red Dragon
Do you think the hot temperatures here in India 35°c during the day will help curb the spread of this virus ?
Absolutely understand these sentiments.I hope the lockdown does not get extended. All my bank balances are close to minimum limit. I need to go to AMC to sell off my MF investments to get money. No trains, no autos, no bus. All my money is locked. I have bills to pay. I'm not rich and never had a full bank balance of lakhs/ crores lying in it. All I had was put in savings so I could gather a bit more paltry money through investments. I don't have job, so no money coming in bank in April or May or June. If I cant go to the AMC in April to sell my investment and get money in bank, I don't know what will happen in May. This is a dire situation for me. I don't even have anywhere else to go like the migrant labourers. Will the govt give me money to pay my bills? I doubt it since they are begging for money from Tatas, Ambanis and Birlas and common people and wont even take money from their own pockets. I'm 100% against this extension of lockdown for my own survival. I don't care if you want it extended. If it's extended I'll break all rules. Simple. Even if I break all rules and manage to go to the AMC office all I will see is a shuttered place.
Remove all money from your purse or wallet and keep just 5000 in it. Try paying all your monthly bills from this amount. Pay gas bill, electric bill, society bill, food bill. See what remains. Now in such a situation will you want a extension of the lockdown? what will you people do in May, June or July? How will you pay next months bills? Eat air? Eat rocks? Survive on plain water?
And there are thousands of self employed or unemployed people in same situation as me. No savings left. No jobs. All are on brink of depression thinking where they will get money or food from. All factories are down. All production is down. Some day all food stocks will vanish and no matter how much money you have you wont be able to buy anything. I think some planting season is coming close in May or June. Imagine no fertilizers, seeds etc. That's one entire crop gone. That a few lakh tons of food like rice or rabbi not being grown. All you people wanting extension - do you want to run out of all the food soon? Are you ready to play war games or survival games? Can you survive with your children on 1 meal a day?
You will say there is FCI godowns full of grains. But those are mostly rotten and kept in bad storage conditions. I've seen those godowns from train tracks in Borivali in Mumbai. Don't even think Govt will supply ration to rich and middle class. Most of the bad stuff will go to PDA shops and all the good stuff will be horded by black marketeers who will sell it at high rates to get profits. Even during bad wheat and rice production season when prices had gone up, Congress never allowed food from FCI into open market. All they did was allow import of rice and wheat from outside. Imagine in this situation - no aeroplanes or ships to get food imports because all countries are facing food shortages. India wont get anything. Countries that can pay higher amount of money will get higher share. Most countries are already in lockdown mode now. I have no idea if they allow farmers to grow or harvest crops. Even if they do, there's problem of storage and sending the produce to the market. What if the food or container has coronavirus on it? Will you throw the food out or destroy it?
Everything looks nice on paper until you have to face the consequences in real life. There's no real justification for an extended lockdown now. Just these few days have shown that Indian people are not getting that much infected compared to foreign countries. We are not hitting 1000+ infections per day like Italy or USA. In my opinion, this was an overblown kneejerk reaction to the pandemic. I'm sorry I think this way but having no money in the bank has made me completely selfish. If people get infected, so be it. Indian companies like Mahindra etc will come up with home made solutions and money and give it free of cost to Govt. All the money they didn't give to workers in the form of higher wages are given to the govt now. Maybe Indian companies will build hospitals in one week like Chinese govt did. Maybe they won't.
