Maharashtra, the worst performing State in India in tackling Corona

Maharashtra is India’s richest State. It is the 3rd most established urbanized state in India. Maharashtra’s GDP is ₹ 28.78 lakh crore (2019-20). Economy of State of Maharashtra can be compared with countries like Bangladesh and Pakistan because the GDP of Maharashtra and the economy of Maharashtra is more than these two countries. Maharashtra is considered the financial capital of India with the headquarters of almost all major banks, financial institutions, insurance companies and mutual funds being based in the city. With population of 120 million (12 Crore), Maharashtra has about 9% of India’s population and about 22% of total cases reported in India.

While schools are set to reopen in a limited way from next week in India, State of Maharashtra School Education Minister has announced that schools will not reopen before Diwali, as the Coronavirus cases continue to rise in the state.  State Higher and Technical Education Minister UdaySamant also said his department does not intend to reopen colleges until the COVID-19 situation is under control. 

Maharashtra on Sunday, reported 10,792 new Covid cases taking the total number of active cases to 2.21 lakhs. So far the Maharshtra is worst performing State in India with about 22% of total cases reported in India. 730 case fatalities have been reported in the past 24 hours. Of these, nearly 80% are concentrated in ten States/UT. More than 25% of new fatalities reported are from Maharashtra (187 deaths). When it comes to responding to the Corona virus of Wuhan, Maharashtra seems to be unable to lagging far behind the poorest States of India, the ubiquitous Bihar. Let us see some parameters.

Corona: There may not be a Vaccine at all?

Have we prepared ourselves to live and face Corona without a vaccine?

There are many virus which human being are facing without any vaccine. Hepatitis B and HIV are two such viral infections for which there are no vaccines. The Suputnik V vaccine is now a suspect because it produces symptoms as severe as the infection itself. The Oxford Vaccine is also in doubts as two patients have developed neurological problems and its trial is on hold in USA. So what will happen? Will there be a vaccine? Let us analyze various factors.

What is Corona Virus:

A breakthrough in Chinese Corona Virus treatment.

Scientists claimed a major breakthrough in the war with Corona.

Scientists at the University of British Columbia have discovered an organic molecule 10 times smaller than an antibody protein that has the potential to destroy even the smallest fraction of the virus, scattered in the body. This study has been published in the journal Cell.

A team of researchers from the University of British Columbia, Canada, created a drug using the smallest molecule, named AB8. Leading researcher Sriram Subrahmayam and his team found that mice and hamster organisms could be protected from the corona virus through the AB8 drug and successful treatment of infected organisms.

Subrahmayam says that a drug prepared with the smallest molecule can not only be better transmitted to the body’s tissues, but it can also be entered into the body through many subtle pathways that are not usually administered. . This will make it easier to completely destroy the virus present in any part of the body.

No negative effect

Researcher Subrahmayam said that this drug does not bind to human cells, which is a sign of absence of the negative effect of the drug in people. AB-8 can not only be used as a Kovid-19 key therapy but can also be used as a prevention to keep people away from the virus.

Plasma Choices

Researchers say that treating the patient with AB8 may give better results in the event of low plasma availability. This drug is successful in completely eliminating the virus in the body which can be considered as an alternative to plasma therapy.

Herd Immunity: in six months India would not require any vaccine for Corona Virus.

Parliament of India started functioning today after testing all members for Chinese Virus. Out of about 800 MPs, 25 members have tested positive without any symptoms. These include two members of Parliament from Delhi namely Meenakshi Lekhi and Pravesh Sahib Singh.

This number of 25 MPs, is in addition to other MPs and Ministers who were infected and have recovered including Home Minister of India.

Serological Survey:

ICMR has revealed a report of a Serological Survey. Aap per this report, till May, around 64 lakh people in the country became infected with Coronavirus. This survey was conducted at the national level for the first time. By May, 0.73% of adults i.e. 64 lakh (64,68,388) people have been estimated to have been exposed to the corona virus. From the survey, it was estimated that there were 82–130 infections in India to confirm every single case of corona by RT-PCR test. It has also been found from the sero survey that about 44 lakh people of the villages have been infected with corona.
According to ICMR, these surveys were conducted between May 11 and June 4. Samples of 4, 28,000 adults were taken during this period. These surveys were conducted in 70 districts of 21 states.

Real Number of Infections in India

Presently there are 4.7 million infected patients in India. As with the parliamentarians, there are numerous people who are infected but have no symptoms. Like all Chinese products, this virus has also lost its efficiency. If we apply the aforesaid report of ICMR and multiply 4.5 million with 100 the answer would be 145 million which exceed the population of India.

This war with China and it’s progenies may take five more months

China wants War with India? (Part 2)

Corona is not yet vanquished:

We know that corona is not yet vanquished. Number of infections in India is rising. There is another bad news. Corona and lock down in some form or the other is going to stay for another 5 months. Life is not going to be normal for another five months. The clue is given from the address of the Prime Minister to the nation. This is the relevant extract:
Prime minister addresses the nation:

“We are now entering Unlock-Two in our fight against the corona pandemic. We are also entering the season of increasing cases of cough, cold and fever. I, therefore, request all of you to take special care of yourselves.
Friends, considering corona’s death rate, India is comparatively in a better position compared to many countries of the world. Timely imposition of lockdown and other decisions have saved lakhs of lives. But we have also seen that since Unlock-One, there is increasing negligence in personal and social behaviour. Earlier, we were very careful with respect to wearing of masks, social distancing and washing of hands for 20 seconds. But today, when we need to be more careful, increasing negligence is a cause of worry. 
Friends, rules were followed very strictly during the Lockdown. Now governments, local bodies, citizens, need to show similar alertness. Especially, we need to focus more on containment zones. Those not following the rules will need to be stopped and cautioned…………
Friends, there is another big thing that has surprised the whole world. In India, over 80 crore people were given free ration for three months. It means, every member of the family was given 5 kilogram wheat or rice, free of cost. In addition, every family got one kilogram pulse per month, free of cost. In a way, over 2.5 times the population of the United States, 12 times the population of the United Kingdom and double the population of the European Union was given free ration by our government.
Friends, today, I am making a big announcement related to this. Friends, in our country, there are many activities in agriculture during and after rainy season. Other sectors do not have much activity. July also marks beginning of the festive season. 5th July is Guru Purnima, then month of Saawan is starting. Then 15th August is coming, Raksha Bandhan, Sri Krishna Janmashtami,Ganesh Chaturthi, Onam will follow. Further, Kati Bihu, Navratri, Durga Puja is coming, then Dussera, Diwali and Chhath. This festive season increases necessities as well as expenditure. Keeping all these things in mind, it has been decided to extend Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana up to Diwali and Chhath Puja, till November-end.
It means, this scheme giving free ration to 80 crore people will continue in July, August, September, October, November. Government will provide free ration to 80 crore poor brothers-sisters for five months. Every member of family will get five kilogram wheat or rice. Also, every family will get one kilogram whole chana per month, free of cost….”

The above free ration scheme was started in April 2020 for three months and now it is being extended to five more months to ensure that none of these poor or not so poor may have food shortage even if they do not have regular job. But it also means that things are not going to be normal for another five months.

Remember that India had banned 59 apps of Chinese Companies yesterday and talks are going on between armies of India and China without result so far.
