This is exactly the first thing that came to my mind when they announced the event. Not sure what the govt is smoking. Organising a mass event chock middle of 65k cases per day:doh:

Mass event? 250 odd people were invited only with proper sanitization and social distancing wherever possible.

 

What do you want then? Stop living life completely or what? 

 

Its a new normal now. You have to continue living your life with precautions. 

 

Yesterday was Janmashtami. It was celebrated by all with precautions.

 

People dancing on road, beating thaalis while playing Garba,etc is all their foolishness.

You want 250 people to dance and celebrate in the middle of one of the worst pandemics in history, where around 65k odd infection cases are being reported daily?

Im curious, are you going to office daily?

Or is the pandemic only applicable when it comes to work?

 

And what precautions are you talking about? Those people are not following any distancing. Most of them arent even wearing masks. Video khola bhi hai?

Dude those are normal public dancing there not the invited ones. 

 

My point is you cant stop the daily routines or things you gotta do you have to do but added measures thats it. 

 

Everything is open now.

No offense man, but didn't somebody share that already? Oh wait, it was you only.

 

Either double posts are back, or you wanted to share the same thing again? 

 

I guess you're concerned about that Mahant. :) Well, my prayers go out to him, and anybody else who attended. 

Hope PM sir doesn't have it.

Dude, this is a 18 second video. The previous one was just a picture. Do you still consider it a double post or did it touch a nerve. IDGAF about the guy.

Went to the registration office today. There was only one other registration besides us, but people still had a hard time keeping their distance. Thankfully all had masks. It's always a stressful 3-4 days afterwards.

It's at least an year or so out from being commercially available if everything goes as per plan. Its still cool though that we might have a homegrown vaccine so we don't have to rely on foreign licenses.

My friend's father got tested positive. They had taken all precautions. Never stepped out, except once when they went to his sister's birthday last week, she stays in same society but in different building. His father must have got infected on the way. He is having lung infection now. Somehow they managed to get a bed.

My friend is the only one of the 9 family members who has fever. He wants to get all tested but afraid to take them all to flu clinic to get prescription because if they are negative, they might catch virus there. He wants to get prescription and do home swab collection, because no one will do the RT PCR test without prescription. Government doesn't test even the family members without prescription in Pune. Such a f**ked up situation.

RT PCR test should be allowed worldwide without prescription now 

I don’t know what the world leaders are thinking 

 

It’s been 6 months now & only way to know the immunity period of this virus if an RTPCR detects it on the same person twice in months gap 

 

It’s horrible that testing machines & kits are still in shortage worldwide

It was only Mumbai I think. He has called collector office, district control room etc, everyone says prescription is required for test.
