I found the trending hashtag on Twitter which is #GSTFreeCorona so I thought to check and find out the origin.
On Saturday, the Indian youth congress advised, requested and urged the central government to waive off GST from medical equipment like ventilators, medicines like paracetamol, hand sanitizers, PPE, masks and other lifesaving drugs until the time, the country is fighting with the pandemic.
As I found the hashtag on Twiter, I was surprised to see so less number of likes, comments and retweets on the post. Just like me, others were also laughing on the same.
Vaibhav Walia mentioned that:
If the govt. agree to our demand of #GSTFreeCorona
Masks will become 5% cheaper for people
Sanitizers will become 18% cheaper for people.
Gloves will become 12% cheaper for people
PPE kits will become 12% cheaper for doctors and medical staff.
Even people like us, who are inspired by his English-diction got inspired by Vaibhav and tweeted:
This is a totally legitimate demand. Shocking the Govt would seek to make money off these indispensable essentials in the midst of a pandemic. I support #GSTFreeCorona-fighting items.Shashi Tharoor
Even the media has no interest in writing articles or blogs about the opposition’s initiative apart from Business Standard.
Let’s find out the Relinquish Tax (GST, IGST & Custom-Duty) on the essential products to Restrain/Cure of Covid-19.
Do you really agree with this tweet?
Even if the world is about to end, do you think someone will give his valuable vote to Rahul Gandhi?
So let’s find out if Modi government has ever considered or issued GST-Free in any compliance.
- Government has extended the date of filing GST returns to businesses.
- Relief from penalty and fine.
- Exemptions from import duties.
- The Government has also decided that the due date for issue of notice, notification, approval order, sanction order, filing of the appeal, furnishing of return, statements, applications, reports, any other documents, the time limit for any compliance under the GST laws where the time limit is expiring between 20th March 2020 to 29th June 2020 will be extended to 30th June 2020.
It was a beautiful morning, spring is approaching. Though it’s still cold in Shanghai yet everyone is getting ready for their office.
Shanghai, is the biggest city in China and the global business hub. Many big and small businesses run over there. People from different countries, villages, small towns and cities migrate to Shanghai in the search of work. A showpiece “Shanghai” is an example of booming industries of China.
Living in Shanghai has always been romanticised and another romantic story was about to start. The air was fresh, blowing romantically.
Jack Chen, a handsome and charming young boy who also lives in Shanghai is also getting ready for his office like all the other days. He stepped out of his house and walked towards his office. He was leaves nearby his office. He wants to earn lots of money and start his own business soon. He works hard every day and in the spare time, he loves to devote his time in personality development. He is a fun-loving guy and a helpful lad but still single in search of a right partner.
Today, as usual after marking his attendance he grabbed a cup of coffee and sat down on a chair in the pantry and kept reading something and scrolling down his messages on wechat.
Suddenly he heard the beautiful voice of a girl and looked up coming out from his mobile screen.
Girl: Can I sit next to you? (She pointed towards a chair lying beside Jack, all the chairs were occupied and that was only vacated).
Jack: (Hesitated and then stood up to great) Yes, of course, you can!
The girl liked the chivalry of Jack and sat with a smile. She initiated the conversation with Jack.
Girl: My name is Taurus, so you will work on the sales team?
Jack: Hello Taurus! It’s a unique and beautiful name, I work with the International sales team.
They continued to talk and after they finished the coffee left the pantry. When they walked by, Taurus giggled and laughed at Jack’s jokes and both exchanged their numbers.
They started to like each other’s company and spend time more time together.
One day, while they were talking, Taurus suddenly asked Jack:
Taurus: Why are you still single? Why you don’t find a girl for yourself?
Jack: Why I will find another girl for myself when I have you if you like, we can know each other far better.
Jack smiled and pulled Taurus closer, her hands tingled when he grabbed.
Taurus: Nice lines! Sure, we can do that.
Days passed and holidays started for Qingming festival, Taurus and Jack went shopping, watched movies, played games together. Jack realised more and more that she is the soul-mate. He thought to get propose her.
Already it was late evening they headed towards home. Jack dropped Taurus at her home but then he parked his car a little far from her home. He wanted to walk with her, it was drizzling, both started to walk. Jack grabbed Taurus’s hand and they both walked silently. Suddenly Jack stopped and said,
Jack: The way I feel now, I never felt before. I am the happiest person when I am with you. I always keep thinking about us all the time.
So will you, many years from now still hold my hands in yours and walk with me in all the phases of life? Will you marry me?
Taurus: (whispered) You are the one I can think about, you are very gentleman with a great sense of humour. She giggled and continued, ” I like your sun sign as well, I read somewhere a Piscean can be an ideal life partner. I love you! I will marry you!
After some time, Jack decided to start his own business, Taurus supported her. They both started their own business. They travelled to different parts of Asia for business and leisure. Soon after they returned from Thailand, they got engaged.
A few days later, Taurus discovered that she is pregnant. They went to the Philippines for photo-shoot.
While Jack and Taurus were looking at the sky holding hands, Jack said:
Jack: I am the happiest person on Earth today, and I will keep you always happy. I promise you, my fiancee, I will take you to all coasts of the world.
They soon got married and now they are expecting the baby in August.
All my best wishes to Jack and Taurus for their beautiful journey of life!!
The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has given approval to convalescent plasma therapy in Kerala.
The experimental therapy can become a ray of light and hope with its success. Researchers and scientists are working tirelessly to invent or develop the vaccine which will provide the proper treatment. However, it is not yet clear if the Convalescent Plasma therapy can win over the virus but it can help the body to fight and overcome.
A patient needs only one dose to get enough antibodies and the donor can produce two doses. However, there are a very limited number of donors and the Convalescent Plasma therapy is expensive.
Amid testing the already testing drugs and new ones, researchers have come across to the convalescent plasma therapy.
What is convalescent plasma therapy and how it works?
The entire world is studying to develop the vaccine to cure COVID-19, China and some other countries, have already initiated the clinical trials.
Different countries are already trying to test the effectiveness of convalescent plasma therapy.
The therapy takes antibodies from the blood of a person who has recovered from a virus and then it is transferred into a person sick with that virus.
Basically, we can say immunity is transferred to boost the immune system of the sick through the plasma therapy.
The antibodies present in the plasma of the recovered patient help in neutralising the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the infected patient.
China has said that patients have shown significant improvement after Convalescent Plasma therapy was administrated in the trial.
The Convalescent plasma therapy was first used during the 1918 Spanish Influenza outbreak.
The technique was used previously during the outbreak of SARS, MERS and Ebola viruses.
How does Convalescent Plasma therapy works?
- It provides antibodies to a person to fight with the virus.
- Convalescent Plasma therapy consists of antibodies and proteins developed by the immune system to prevent the body from harm.
In India, only critical patients will get Plasma therapy.
The Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology (SCTIMST) will soon begin with the trials by April end. With this Kerala will become the first state to conduct the trials followed by Chandigarh.
