India Has Bungled Its Coronavirus Crisis

India has crossed two bleak landmarks in its battle against the coronavirus.

The country has now reached over 400,000 infections, making it the fourth-worst-hit country in the world, overtaking Britain, Spain, and Italy. But it’s also lifted its 76-day lockdown and allowed workplaces, places of worship, hotels, and restaurants to reopen.

The grim dichotomy indicates India’s bungling response to the coronavirus, one that is sending the country hurtling toward a catastrophic health crisis.

New cases are rising unabated, growing at a faster rate than ever before; hospitals are running out of beds and ventilators, testing remains low; and the geographical spread of the virus is increasing, reaching new areas in rural India. And yet, with its economy reeling under losses caused by the lockdown—its central bank, the Reserve Bank of India, has already estimated that this year will see negative growth—the country is opening up in order to try to stave off economic disaster. In the process, it is walking head-on into a pandemic at its peak.

The crisis is already in full display in its top two cities, New Delhi and Mumbai, which combined account for around a third of India’s total cases.

Hospitals are already full, and critical patients with a range of conditions being turned away. Earlier this month, in Delhi’s suburb of Noida, an eight-month-pregnant woman died in an ambulance after six hospitals refused to admit her despite a 13-hour-long hunt. In Mumbai, a 68-year-old COVID-19 patient died because health authorities could not arrange a ventilator for her, despite repeated pleas by her relatives for two days.

The stories are grim, yet it is only likely to get worse.

Delhi alone, its Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said last week, will have 550,000 cases by the end of next month, while another estimate sees a million cases nationwide by then.

Does anyone have any idea why schools have chosen only reception, year 1 and year 6 to return to primary school. They’ve been mentioning these specific year groups for a while.

It does look like these specific school years will be returning to school soon. As of 4th July the social distancing rules have been relaxed. Enabling many outlets to reopen.

The government has deemed these to be the most important years of a child's learning in primary school that is. Year 1 because it is the first year of learning and Year 6 because it's the last year of primary school (as well as SATs).

Flu virus with 'pandemic potential' found in China
By Michelle Roberts
Health editor, BBC News online
29 June 2020

The new flu strain is similar to the swine flu that spread globally in 2009

A new strain of flu that has the potential to become a pandemic has been identified in China by scientists.

It emerged recently and is carried by pigs, but can infect humans, they say.

The researchers are concerned that it could mutate further so that it can spread easily from person to person, and trigger a global outbreak.
