Will the lockdown in India end on 14th April or any time soon?

It is supposed to be last Sunday of the lock down but yesterday most Chief Ministers have already indicated that it must be extended by two weeks. Prime Minister has to take the final call but he has chosen not to speak, so far. So what would he do?

Can a patient be on ventilator forever?


Individuals have savings even if they are not salaried person who are supposed to get paid during this lock down but no industry can pay the employees, indefinitely. Prime Minister may have consulted the Chief Ministers of States yesterday but has not consulted the Industrialists as yet. Worse he has not invited suggestions from them, as to how they may run their industries under the new normal of social distancing. But before they may give those suggestions, they may have to interact with their floor managers which may not be possible in the lock down. That is another challenge. However the CII or Confederation of Indian Industries has made a representation on behalf of industries, to the Government.

These may be most challenging time in which a virus is out there to destroy every statistics the science and medicine has made in last 100 year to increase the longevity of human existence. The life of mature adults between the age of 20 to 40 may not be affected much and may be likely to survive but all those who hang in balance with severe conditions, with the help of medicine or surgery are at the risk of personal extinction.

Lies, Damn Lies and WHO lies:

We now know it as a fact that the initial assurance of China or it’s stooge WHO, was a lie that rate of mortality is about 3-4% of those infected. We will know about it after the dust of death settles down and this blood storm is over. It is however doubtful if we will ever know it correctly because every death does not precede a diagnosis and every diagnosis does not result in death. There shall always be patients who may succumb to death without putting up a fight or medical help.

Why USA or Italy or Spain are not winning this war with Corona Virus from Wuhan?

Chinese Checker:

The world is busy playing Chinese checker with the virus that originated in Wuhan, China and is now unleashed on to the world. Presently there are over 8 hundred thousand patients world wide with about quarter of that number in USA alone. The virus came in grip of last 50,000 patients in just 24 hours. This ailment spreads exponentially. The more people are caught with it, more will die and even more will be infected. Let me explain:

Chess problem:

A chess board has 64 squares. What will happen if we place one grain on one of the square and multiply it on every next square? Let me help:

On square one it will be 1 and on second square it will be 2. On third it will be 4. On fourth it will be 8 and so on. Can you now guess what will be the number on 64th square? The number will be Continue reading

Corona Virus: test, test, test recomended by WHO is not enough.

India fighting was with Corona:

While testing for corona virus is important but test can not prevent it. India with about 200 positive cases and several thousand in isolation or quarantine, still has lowest numbers considering that it is the second most populous country and in termed of population density it is most dense. Population density of China is about 150 persons per sq. Km. India has a population density of 450 persons per sq. Km approximately.

India is still at stage 2 of communicable disease and is fighting hard not to progress to stage 3 of disease in which corona is spread in the community. But it was and is not easy. But the slow speed of corona virus spread has a civilizational reason:
