Hygiene standards low in India hmmm.

 

Watch Kitchen Nightmares please :P

I have, but those are behind closed kitchens. Here we have those scenes openly in front of customers. 

 

I remember i went to a canteen once and was taking a grilled sandwich . The f**ker literally sneezed in this hands and just wiped them with tissue, and handled my sandwich with those same hands all in front of me. When I raised a concern, the cashier simply said " Ponch to liye haath, aur kya karega"?

It's called low bar and we're proud of it. Dude that's why people were very hopeful that due to our being so unhygienic we'll have natural immunity :lol:

I used to order food from outside a lot pre lockdown. I haven't had a single bite of food prepared outside since lockdown was announced but IMHO there would have been several and I mean several reports of restaurant food spreading corona by now. 1 cr cases in the world and not even 10k cases linked to eating outside food?

Lol. I went to pick my sister up from near Kerala border at 2am.

The cops in the only checkpost in the national highway en route back were actually asleep when I drove by.

 

I am not criticizing them, but I guess nothing matters anymore. We just have to live with it. Use mask, gloves and sanitizer and go about life. Take special care to protect  the elderly.

Eating outside food has multiple components. 

 

Are you eating pre packed foods (like namakpare, mathi, papdi etc) or are you eating freshly cooked food ? I believe the latter is where the issue is, but as long as you discard the hotel's packing and reheat the food to above 92 centigrades for 15 mins (gives a 6 log reduction, more or less nullifying chances of exposure), it should be ok. 

 

For the packed stuff which has a longer shelf life, just keep it untouched for 3 days (or disinfect the surface with a sanitizer and then open). 

 

I am ordering quite frequently via swiggy or zomato, but all packaged products only, nothing freshly made. And we have a table placed outside where they keep the stuff for no contact delivery.

Yes i meant Freshly cooked food. I guess there should have been several reports by now. Or there is a restaurant mafia that is not allowing any such news to leak :scratchchin:

Unless you are talking about those MNC chain restaurants i don't think such a mafia exists.

3 months of shutdown has destroyed most normal restaurants, they don't have cash, workers, maal is all either expensive or spoilt.

Food delivery and app-based Cabs were two things which were working awesome-ly in Metros.

Many restaurants weren't doing well with dine-in but crutching on food-delivery.

 

Shops in the Malls were fked earlier too (because of e-com) but food-courts & movie-halls were keeping things moving.

Now those are gone too.

 

Hotels & resorts were doing Okish, but OYO was getting them business

....now entire hospitality business is crapped.

 

Airlines business wasn't profitable for operators but Indigo was still making money, people were travelling for leisure not just for business.
Now it is reduced to a business. primarily for evacuating stranded people.

 

Covid has f**ked our economy really bad. :|

What's scary is that there's no endgame in sight yet :(  Not really sure how long can the economy go on like this.  Companies might start terminating their leases/contracts on office space, security , catering, cabs etc., if the numbers dont come down soon (its already 3 months and there's no peak in sight),  bringing down a big chunk of the eco-system that's built around the working class.  I'm also doubtful what the future of IT support/office managers kind of jobs would be without a physical office space.  Same kind of issue might be faced by the new-age startups like moveinsync, hungerbox etc which built their business model around providing services to offices !   Also, with increased wfh, and parents not sending their children to school, many of the pre-schools and their teachers are facing the crunch as well. 

 

Some companies have pivoted and are making a quick buck offering wfh related services like setting up workstations, desks etc too.  

 

Not sure how would be the world when all this ends, but I think it would be very different than the one we had before this all started !

Lockdown is for Covid only, Bhai.

 

in fact, some of the indicators were showing recovery from slowdown which creeped in from 2018, now we are back to square or even below.

As per May 21st 2020 analysis, around 50% deaths in India are of people below 60. And in Maharashtra, maximum cases are of people aged between 31 to 40. 

Even if we are controlling spread in old people, the young people are getting infected much more and deaths are more too. This is because young in India are mostly careless about their health and they don't even know if they are suffering from some comorbidities.

Covaxin — India’s first Covid-19 vaccine by Bharat Biotech gets DCGI nod for human trials

 

Quote

The country’s ‘first’ indigenous COVID-19 vaccine COVAXIN, developed by city-based Bharat Biotech in collaboration with ICMR and NIV, has got the nod for human clinical trials from the Drug Controller General of India, the company said on Monday.

 

The Phase I and Phase II clinical trials of the vaccine for SARS-CoV-2, approved after pre-clinical studies demonstrated safety and immune response, would start across the country next month.
