Amaira Khan a 10 months old girl from South Delhi is suffering from COVID-19. Her parents kept running hither and thither to get the infant admitted in a hospital.
As in Delhi, Coronavirus is spreading like wildfire, by far, total registered and confirmed cases in Delhi are 44,688 (as per recent updates). Out of which, 16500 have recovered and 1837 already died.
Amaira Khan, the infant, started showing symptoms of pneumonia a few days back due to which parents admitted her in hospital. Doctors cured her pneumonia in a day but her COVID-19 test came positive after that the hospital released the baby and suggested the parents admit her in a hospital treating covid-19.
The infant was taken from one hospital to another to get a bed but couldn’t arrange one. At last, a hospital in South Delhi named Holy family which runs on the charitable trust as conveyed by the patient’s family got ready to admit the baby with terms and conditions.
They demanded 20,000INR per day for 45 days and the time duration being non-negotiable. The hospital has a condition of the fixed time-period which they conveyed before treating. As the parents objected because they didn’t have this large amount to spend, the hospital refused to admit the baby and was taken back to her home.
Not just Amaira is getting her treatment at home, similarly most of the people from Delhi are self-isolating themselves.
That’s why I used the word ‘registered cases’ because I recently got to know that people in Delhi are taking consultation from local clinics and family doctors, taking the medicines as suggested by them. They are also avoiding COVID-19 test just to avoid society and family from panicking.
This is actually working as people are getting cured with local medicines and homemade treatments. Still I urge everybody to consult doctor, follow protocols and do not be your own doctor.
As one of the patients from Delhi said, the doctor claimed that he had cured even a 80 years old woman.
Common Medications prescribed by doctors to Covid patients.
Doctors are advising to take hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine medicines, vitamins, Calpol, Paracetamol, multivitamins, ORS, salt-water.
These medicines are recommended by family doctors in Delhi.
But it’s not possible to store every kind of drug as the doctors are treating patients depending on case to case basis, as studies show they are using anti-clotting drugs, anti-inflammatory drugs, drugs used to treat stroke. Also, you need an expert’s observation which can be done in a hospital.
To boost your immunity, doctors are advising to have amla, turmeric water or milk as well.
Try to take a protein-rich diet, involve curd, turmeric, basil leaves, beans and green vegetables.
Even in one of my blogs, I have shared precautions in details.
This is not the first case in Delhi, similar cases have been reported by far where patients are refused by the hospitals forcing them to self-treating themselves.
I will say, entire India is dealing with the same where some patients are getting cured by home remedies and medicines suggested by family doctors, condition of a few patients are getting worse and when they are hospitalized at phase 3, the patient is already suffering from hyperinflammatory phase.
Hyper inflammatory phase occurs when a hyperactivated immune system has already damaged the liver, kidney, lungs or other organs and body parts. Along with that ‘cytokine storm’ might also occur.
Cytokine storm: In this situation, the patient’s own body starts to act on its own tissues.
In this stage, a patient is kept on ventilator but then there is a lesser chance to get cured. That is why there are fewer recovery chances of ventilated patients.
As per the family doctors, phase 1 and 2 can be cured at home. But then, in some situations, as I have read, phase 2 and 3 are overlapping with each other. The pulmonary phase ( phase 2) the immune system is already highly affected by the virus and a patient can experience respiratory symptoms like shortness of breath, persistent cough and low oxygen levels. Hence, it’s my personal advice to get your tests done and try to admit in a hospital if any patient or family member is experiencing the same symptom.
By far, we don’t have a proper drug to cure COVID-19 patients. Scientists all over the world are trying to invent vaccination and are working day and night to help the world and restore it again.
In every crisis, doubt or confusion, take the higher path – the path of compassion, courage, understanding and love.
Updates: The actor’s post mortem has been conducted and the provisional reports have been submitted by the doctors at Bandra Police Station. The provisional cause of death as asphyxia due to hanging. This is really a mystery as many of us have said the same thing that he drank a juice but then we don’t know the circumstances. The entire nation is devastated and mourning while people are assuming a lot as it’s hard to believe him dying. He was successfully working but how did this happen? After his death, the media claimed that the actor was struggling with depression past six months but then when Deepika Padukone was depressed the entire world knew it. Entire Bihar is deeply saddened to lose a jewel. There are not many stars from Bihar and the state lose one pride. Sushant Singh Rajput was not just a good actor he had a brilliant academic record. When I checked his Instagram, I found that he used to share technological ideas and post which is quite different from other Bollywood stars. Most of the actors and actresses keep on posting their videos and pictures but he was indeed a man to respect. His latest post on Instagram was a picture with his mother and the caption might be a hint of his sadness but no can ever imagine he might be having suicidal thoughts. Karan Johar blamed himself for the step Sushant took. Do you think the game of nepotism killed the talented young 34 years old boy? Not just nepotism and Bollywood, so much of toxicity in people’s mind that a few of them posted their pleasure as the actor died because he raised his voice against the protest for the movie. The known actor Sushant Singh Rajput commits suicide. The dead body of Sushant lying left me with tears. Mumbai Police is investigating the reason for his suicide but they haven’t found any note yet. People have gathered Sushant Singh’s residence in Patna.

Recently a video of famous educator and innovator Sonam Wangchuk went viral, calling people for complete boycott of China made products.
It is not just Coronavirus which can spread like a wildfire. In this age of Internet, videos go viral reaching entire nation in matter of single day as well.
Before we dwell more into Sonam’s call for boycott, let me inform you that Chinese business is badly is affected even before the end customers shout out for boycott. I remember in March when the lockdown had just begun, many Chinese friends of mine did share that Indian traders are avoiding them, blaming China for the virus and how it has affected India badly.
Not just India, it has become difficult for China to sell to other countries as well, including cancellation of many contracts. Some of my friends who are small time manufacturers and suppliers are so badly hit that they have to sell their houses just to pay debt for being harassed by loan providers.
But again, as the lockdown 2.0 was called off in India, many distributors have started buying chinese made masks and other hygiene products to be sold in India.
A few months ago, I was shared a WeChat fight where Indian trader was fighting with her Chinese supplier alleging the China to creating this problem and hampering his source of income and hardship. On which, the lady got furious and made racist comments and depicted India as a third world country. Even I did share a similar incident in a blog where a Chinese argued with me claiming the virus didn’t originate in China and how his country is helping the world fight this pandemic.
The problem is not with ordinary Chinese citizens, they are just like us. They don’t even know that the entire picture and say what they are being fed by state controlled media.
All they know that China is in Cold-war with the US and it is the one painting bad picture of China around the world.
As far as I know, given the fact that neither I am a journalist nor a well know columnist. All of my statements are based on what subject matter experts, reliable columnists, scientists, journalists, activists speak or write.
As also mentioned in my previous blog, China is trying to create tension in its neighbourhood be it India, Australia, Vietnam, Philippines to give a double folded message. First it is disturbing those countries who more or less have either sided with the US or will support given the chance. Second, it wants to give clear message to these countries as well as the world about who the Big Brother is, and the consequences you have to bear by going against China.
The Boycott movement did not start via Sonam Wangchuk, as soon as the Modi government came to power, it has always emphasized to go local. Make in India is a direct threat to China, although the effect intensified with the lockdown and the clarion call by Sonam Wangchuk.
This developments did have effects on Chinese products sale in India and many B2B aggregator companies saw delisting of Chinese suppliers from their platform.
Any developing nation’s market will have a significant dependency on cost as a factor. Given the size of India and its massive middle & rural class buyers, we Indians keep buying China made cheap products. Any Indian trader only moves to China because it provides cheap low quality products which has the potential to sell among the taste of Indian consumer. On why we Indian manufacturers are not able to match the same, is a different discussion in itself. This lockdown has dented the sale here as well for China due to boycott.
Question is why China is now instigating India, why when its own hands are full of Coronavirus claims, pre-Cold war phase with US, Hong-Kong fiasco and South China sea issue. There are multiple reasons to it.
First, it is giving India a stern message who’s the Boss and especially after India’s bonhomie with US, given the fact that Mr. Modi did make a statement that WHO needs recasting hinting that it is controlled by China.
Second, it was bound to happen, and one needs to be Geopolitically ignorant to let go of the fact that our Home minister have been making many statements and we have taken many actions. Ladakh was made Union territory and many contested areas like Pangong Tso lake are part of it. Moreover, Mr. shah did make statement that they will do whatever it takes to get back Aksai Chin. The Chinese were listening and were just waiting for the snow to melt and kick into action.
Third, President Xi is today at his weakest as his own strictly controlled people are questioning him at-least on Social media and he is being challenged internally. What’s better than the best way to deviate the topic from his own failure and do a time-tested method of regaining power by inciting nationalism in the population through skirmish with other countries. Recently president Xi, addressed the Chinese army that it should be ready for war as Coronavirus issue is threatening the nations security.
Recently, in a physiological war, a Chinese channel broadcasted a video showing 6 Indian soldiers tied and beaten up followed by racist comments. A same reciprocal video is being circulated in India where Chinese soldiers were being tied & beaten up. A lot of Pakistani’s did not lose the chance to bank on this and made fun with memes.
Today however, I am not discussing the cold war but the “wallet war” and “Chinese boycott”. Not going deep dive, let’s try to find out the answers to few questions:
Is it practically possible to completely boycott Chinese products where we just don’t have local manufacturing?
Even though a final product might not be assembled in China, the parts are made in China itself. How to deal with these products. That’s the exact reason India backed out to RCEP.
While we want to be vocal about local, we can’t simply ignore the fact which shows the majority of these products in our homes are some or other way linked to China.
How ready are we even after many years of Make in India initiatives?
While a lot of people are rallying and supporting the cause, a new app has been launched which scans and removes all the Chinese apps that one is using. In no time, millions of people downloaded the app with enviable rating of 4.8. It’s hashtag started trending in twitter and I will share some reviews I found over there.
This is how twitter is reacting.
Many celebrities have joined the rally on banning Chinese apps like Milind Suman, Arshad Warsi and even some TikTok stars as well.
The main agenda and motive here is to make the real Dragons the citizens of China to wake up and question their suppressive reign.
It is not just the fault of China by inventing and launching a social media app. Two yrs. ago, when I got introduced to this app, even I made lip-syncing video but later felt that it is not suitable for me. I even tried launching my English classes videos as suggested by a Chinese friend but it didn’t encourage and motivate me as the blogging did.
Chinese use TikTok for their business a have become a huge platform over commercial purposes. On the flip side in India, we saw disturbing videos encouraging acid attacks, rape, animal violence, religious fanatism and many such acts. Recently the founder of TikTok ‘Zhang Yiming’ said in an interview that he made the app for “jobless and unstable people” but he didn’t knew that India had so many. It is not just jobless, even employed, students, stable people mostly use this to showcase their talent limited to dance and drama. At the end, we are all “papa ki pari”.
This blog has become too long to continue with more discussions. Allow me, to resume in the next chapter because we have too much to discuss a boycott of Chinese products, China-India LAC issue. Upcoming Cold war and World War-3.
India is now among the top 10 worst-hit countries with a total of 1.38+ lacs confirmed cases.
The total deaths recorded by far has increased to 4000+ however, 57000+ patients have already recovered. That is actually a positive thing and the world is also amazed at the recovery rate of patients of Indians. This might be because of our immunity, BCG, the weather of something else.
If you check the list, Maharashtra is almost contributing one-third of the total number of confirmed coronavirus patients in India.
Now, in upcoming days as domestic flights start operating from today in all states except West Bengal. West Bengal will start operating on 28th May.
Air hostesses are wearing protective gears over uniforms. The airlines are following all the guidelines. Let’s see if the flying migrants bring trouble or not.
Today India is celebrating Eid, this year the festival is different for many families as most of them have not done any shopping and will not perform their prayers in the mosque.
People are performing prayers at their homes.
Delhi: The total number of containment zones is now 90 as 3 new zones are added,41 other zones de-contained.
By far, 80 flights have been cancelled from New Delhi as West-Bengal will resume their services from 28th May, Maharashtra and Chennai have to restrict their numbers of flights.
