New Delhi: 10 months old COVID patient’s cries were unheard by Delhi Hospitals| Self-Isolation

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.

Please check: https://romieducation.com/2020/03/12/home-remedies-to-fight-with-coronavirus/

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.

As said,

In every crisis, doubt or confusion, take the higher path – the path of compassion, courage, understanding and love.

The Migrant Conundrum |Poverty & Lockdown.

Over the past few weeks the most pressing matter the government is trying to handle is the migrant crisis that has arisen out of this lockdown. It seems that the government advisory mechanism was caught off guarded over repercussions of this lockdown from the migrant perspective.

To the flocking of thousands of migrants at Delhi-Ghaziabad border, to the staging protest in Surat, Andhra border or at Bandra in Mumbai. People have been protesting to arrange the government for their return to their natives. While the government has been suggesting staying put wherever they are, respective state government have been arranging return of their citizens.

A quick survey of migrant’s shelters reveals the horror. The Delhi police survey report states to Indian Express (April 28), that fans are not working, no power backup, sanitization of toilets rarely done, most migrants want to leave as their families cannot survive, rude behavior of civil staff, pathetic quality of food, no hand wash and sanitizer, foul smells in toilet, water supply in toilets only between 7 to 11am, one soap for bathing and no detergent to was clothes, mosquito bites and so on. If these are the conditions of voluntary camps, don’t even imagine the conditions of quarantine camps where one have no option but to stay.

This lockdown has left the marginal section who barely are lifted out of poverty at the helm of going back to poverty. With no job, no food and no means to send remittances to their family, it is natural that one gets frustrated. The grim pictures of migrants cycling or walking back on foot along with small children thousands of kms paints the reality of this lockdown. Remember, the lives exist out of gated society as well. The truth is government is yet to figure out the assistance of this section, and assistance if received have benefited only few.

Once, these people go back and settle, the MSME’s will be the hardest hit, which are dependent on these workforces. Once stopped, it is no easy job to restart a business. Indian railways have set off across country to bring back home the stranded migrants and estimates that 500 such trains will be needed across 15 days to get the job done. The state of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh have to huddle together as coordination with states are the major pain pointed out by the Railways. Rajasthan, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and West Bengal are also in the line.

Once this exercise is over, the next challenge of the government is to kick start the economy and feed its jobless citizens, in a country where malnutrition is entrenched, especially among children, there is a danger of hunger becoming widespread too. We all have anecdotal evidence that families are going hungry and some are starving too. While you can have food given to you by government, one just cannot give up his dignity and have no job but just food to eat even if given free by the government. A human need is much more than just-food.

Where we read disturbing news of people committing suicide because he wasn’t able to feed his family during lockdown.

On the other hand, jewellers are forced to sell vegetables so that they can survive from the lockdown crisis.

A food for thought!!.

How Bengal is fighting with COVID-19 under Mamta’s rule.Current update.

Current update

After Amit Shah, now Dr Indranil Basu Ray who is an Indian-American cardiologist has written a letter to Mamta Banerjee.

I am compelled to point out the fact that as West Bengal is exceptionally crowded, the virus, if it infects a particular locality, will spread like wildfire, affecting thousands and killing quite a few.We cannot take anything for granted as you will regret if thousands are infected, and hundreds start dying because of a lack of strictness in preventing the spread and appropriate detection of COVID-19.

Indranil Basu Ray

By now, West Bengal has more than 2060+ cases. Indranil also added:

Hushing up such infection and not taking appropriate precautions like isolation would lead to death and destruction, which I certainly know that you would not like as the Chief Minister of my state,

Indranil Basu Ray

If we check the state-wise list of confirmed patients in India after Maharashtra Gujarat is the second state to have the highest number of covid-19 patients while West Bengal is at 8th position with 2000+ cases so why so many letters are been written to Mamta?

Are all the people biased and trying to just target Mamata?

Or

It’s because of the number of cases might be more but the state is hiding the actual numbers?

I am getting a lot of messages and request to write something on the way West-Bengal is dealing with Coronavirus. People from Bengal are asking my opinion and thoughts on the same. It’s sad that the citizens of West-Bengal are upset and worried by the way the state government is handling the situation.

After reading the tweet, I reached out to Rahul Jha who is helping poor and needy people with rations. This is a new challenge for him to rescue the stranded ones. Let’s see how we can support.

On this blog, I am just sharing my analysis, it will be too early for me to put forward any opinion for such a sensitive cause.

Let’s start the journey of analysis with me and find out together.

These are my questions which came to my mind. Help me to find answers.

  1. Are political leaders with decades-old rivalries still playing politics during this pandemic?
  2. What the fight is all about? Is it ego or insecurity?
  3. If Mamta is playing politics at this situation, will it hit back?
  4. While students are tweeting Mamta to bring them back from Kota, why she has not taken any steps yet?
  5. Only the two states, Bihar and WB don’t want their students and migrants back, why?
  6. Will politics affect the common man?
  7. Are sweets so vital for Bengalis, that they won’t be able to survive for a few days that the government is bound to open meat markets and sweet shops?
  8. Is Centre really trying to intervene and blame Mamta?
  9. The central government decided the hotspots without survey and statistics, how?
  10. Why didn’t centre sent teams to MP or Gujarat first, as they sent to Kolkata?
  11. As Mamata and supporters are continuously saying that they lack PPE kits and testing kits because of the biased government, is that true?
  12. Why it is taking 5 days for test results to come out in Bengal when it is 2 days for other states.

Let’s try to find out the answers in this blog.

What happened till date in West Bengal?

  • On 4th march, Mamata alleged that people are creating chaos over CoronaVirus to suppress the riots in Delhi. She said;

“Today some people are shouting corona, corona [coronavirus] a bit too much. Yes, it’s a dreaded disease but doesn’t create panic. Some (TV) channels are creating hype over it to suppress Delhi violence.

If anyone can provide help to rescue this little girl who has stuck alone thousands of km away from parents.
  • On 17th March, a young boy was detected positive for COVID-19 in West Bengal who returned from London. This was the first case reported.
  • On the 18th of March, she asked people not to be irresponsible if they are having CoronaVirus symptoms also she ordered the state police to take stern action those who are spreading fake news.
  • On the earlier days of lockdown, even the media and the opposition parties applauded the way she addressed the media and people of West-Bengal. Mamta did announce that the state government will create a fund of 200 crores to deal with coronavirus.
  • By 25th March, the entire Kolkata Medical college was turned into medical facility to treat COVID-19 patients.

Now how the game changed? Let’s understand.

Politics- A dangerous game to play during this pandemic.

Coronavirus did change the course of Indian politics. Along with that, also exposed not only the mentality of politicians and media people but also the common men.

We are not just bearing brunt of economic crisis but the world is burning with communists and brutal and ruthless Indians.

Whenever I see the photo of the poor Hindu monk’s face who got killed by the mob at Palghar I do shiver that how people killed a person to death. The wound was not even healed and today I read another news of the death of 2 more Hindu monks.

Mamata Banerjee in the early days of April said that Coronavirus is not a communal disease and politics must not be indulged into it.

Later on, she mentioned that the areas must not be divided as hotspots. Where the whole country was fighting with coronavirus, recognizing hotspots and seal them she, on the other hand, gave it a term “sensitive areas”.

Is this because of her Muslim vote bank?

If we see the past and learn from it, Narendra Modi has always been known for turning unfavourable circumstances in his favour. As he is taking strong steps and trying to save his citizens from the virus even the entire world is praising him. This is the golden opportunity for BJP to enter into the West Bengal. If we see the history, BJP never ruled West-Bengal. We saw in 2014 when BJP got only 2 seats and in 2019 BJP managed to get 18 seats out of 42 which was remarkable. TMC has to be worried about this surge and any mismanagement can lead them to lose the next election.

The Bengal Chief Minister was clear of locking horns with the Prime Minister since the beginning of the fight against Coronavirus. She refused the plea of lighting lamps. Although she left the decision of lighting lamps to the citizens of the respective state. Most of the people switched off the lights for 9 minutes but didn’t lit lamps or candles as far as I know. When I spoke with few, I was surprised to know that they did not light the candles because of fear of retaliation.

What we are seeing, the only state government which turned out to be doing bizarre acts to control COVID-19. Where everyone is requesting including the prime minister to get united Mamata is holding daily press conferences to claim and state how the state is discriminated. Is that so?

TMC claims that the government is biased towards West-Bengal.

Let’s see if the government is biased. What steps the government has taken by far for the states:

  • Government of India has allowed states for additional borrowing and the limit is set at GSDP of States as per fiscal responsibility and FRBM act.
  • The government of India has ensured that they will give free treatment to COVID-19. Every state has set-up quarantined centres but Mamata is asking the people to stay put and quarantine themselves in their own homes because it’s difficult to arrange facilities for everyone. But what if the situation gets out of control and we need immediate medical assistance.
  • The government is providing PPE kits of International standards to every state. Where Mamata raised her questions on the colour of PPE kits and on the other side, media reported misuse of PPE kits.

The blog has already become too long to read. Let me cover the rest of the topics on my upcoming blogs related to Mamata dealing with Coronavirus.

It is high time that the politicians forget about politics and fight against the deadly virus which is mutating very fast. Scientist have already reported that the virus has mutated 10 times by now.

Otherwise, if anyone has watched Game of Thrones it will be difficult to win over the virus. As from the first season of GOT, we know “Winter is coming” but the rulers we’re so busy winning over lands and ruling that even though the finally defeated the nightwalkers, it left disastrous results.

Quarantine teams attacked in different states of India.

Naming just two major attacks, however, we have witnessed several other attacks against health workers and police officials in Ranchi and Indore as well.

On 19th April at evening, a team of health workers and policemen reached a ward in West Bengaluru’s Padarayanapura locality to take 58 people who came in contact with coronavirus confirmed patients.

The locality was sealed last week after 3 patients who attended the Tablighi Jamaat were tested positive.

When the team reached around 7 pm, the mob of around 200 people started removing the barricades. However, the city of learned people didn’t attack the crew members but damage of the property was reported.

By far, 54 people have been arrested.

  • In Moradabad, a mob of around 150 people came and started throwing stones over the team of doctors, attacked the ambulance and even attacked the cops, damaging the police car and ambulance. However, 17 attackers were arrested and immediate action was taken by the special court and ordered a 14-day judicial remand.

Apart from the very known attacks let’s check a few more such attacks:

As we can see ASHA workers attacked when they came to check for Corona symptoms.

On this, Karnataka chief minister assured to provide full security to Asha workers and other officials.
As Karnataka earlier announced a lockdown relaxation from April 21 was withdrawn partly later on.

Some other similar attacks took place in other states, have a look:
A tweet of cops attacked an injured was posted.

Is the government to be blamed or workers getting impatient?

If you are watching the situation we can see a massive gathering in Bandra, Mumbai. The Mumbai migrants have gathered in large numbers, social distancing and safety of policemen went for the toss.


The gathering of people in such large numbers, cramped in spaces and sent back to their natives such as Bihar, UP, MP and Rajasthan defeats the purpose of lockdown and increases the risk of even wider spread in states where health infrastructure is already in a dismal state. A couple of weeks back, when there was a disaster in the capital of India, Mumbai was quite silent and managed then as the state government assured to provide with food and shelter.

The labours were waiting for the lockdown to end, as it extended till 3rd of May, stranded migrants who were waiting to return home, gathered at Bandra West station demanding return to their natives. The police had to resort lathi-charge to disperse the crowd.

Must read:

India Today TV spoke to Maharashtra Cabinet minister Aslam Sheikh who assured that there was no dearth of food for the migrants in the city.

Now after reading and hearing all this information, here I want to understand the actual reason for all the chaos.

Is Mumbai going to be another trigger point of mass Exodus jeopardizing the effect of lockdown?

This is not about the free meal or shelter the government is providing, their entire life has changed. They are frustrated, anxious with the uncertainties looming around them.

In my 20 years in Mumbai, I have never seen such a sight

Gopal Das| The Hindu

I read an editorial of The Hindu, where he mentioned a person from Bhagalpur, Bihar who is a construction worker attempted to board the last few trains from Mumbai station to their homes but failed. Let me, share the same with you:

Gopal is from Bhagalpur, Bihar. He said he and his friends spent nearly four hours trying to get tickets. “A few people who had clambered on to the trains fell on the platform. A little later, we heard that all the trains had been cancelled. Since there was no public transport, we walked for three hours to our room in Bandra (East) with ₹250 in our pockets. We were still hoping they would start the trains. We didn’t think it would last this long,” he said.

The Hindu

I was taken aback by the videos and pictures of people shoving each other to get into trains. It reminded me of “Gadar” movie wherein one scene people were flocking in numbers to save lives after independence.

Voice of the labours

The labours do not wish to continue the same way leaving isolated and separated with their families. They are now demanding a way out of it, food and shelter are not what they want now as a prime thing. What they want is to facilitate transportation to their respective towns and villages.

Maharashtra Minister, Aditya Thackeray tweeted his opinion and seemed to have blamed the central government.

The current situation at Bandra station, now dispersed or even the rioting in Surat is a result of the Union Govt not being able to take a call on parenting a way back home for migrant labour. They don’t want food or shelter, they want to go back home.

Aditya Thackeray

Is this the right time to play the blame game and accuse the central government?

Moreover, some ministers are also pointing that there is problem with adequate food supply as well.

What might be the actual reason for the sudden outbreak in the evening? Are some kind of panic being created or fake news spread over WhatsApp and other social media?

Police are trying to find out the real reason as our prime minister addressed the nation this morning and the gathering happened in the evening so what might be the actual reason.

My questions are:

What is the reason for Mumbai Lockdown mess?

The police was continuously requesting the migrants to maintain social distance.

According to Republic TV, people are not getting rations. A man showed a list to the camera where there is a list of 5000 people asking for rations.

Is the government not providing adequate amount of ration, food and shelter?

How did state let so many people gather?

There are all type of negative shady characters and incidents that helps the CoronaVirus to spread in mass. Minutes after this happened public figures and ministers stated that the incident is anti-public and anti-poor blaming the central government and Modi.

The social media was flooded with memes and news comparing Surat incident and Mumbai incident.

So as Arnab Goswami mentioned in his debate, was the violation planned?

Is it not about going home, it’s about food and shelter?

An activist Kavita Krishnan tweeted and compared the Bandra incident with Surat and blamed the central government. She mentioned

At Surat, then at Bandra, migrant workers gathered to ask to go home have been dispersed by force.

Gujarati tourists we’re brought from Haridwar thanks to @AmitShah, as have Indians from foreign shores, but Modi won’t even mention migrants?

Kavita Krishnan

As she also tweeted

Modi lied this morning claiming India screened passengers early to slow down Covid-19.

When 20 counties reported Covid-19, India only screened passengers from China, Hong-kong, that too, only thermal screening for fever, not testing them for Covid-19.

Kavita Krishnan

Seeing her tweet, I wanted to dig more about her. The media and the entire country is now divided between two teams. Some are Modi-supporters and the other half Anti Modi. Also to add a third team which is neutral including me, we are observing the situation, obeying the rules and seeking questions.

So after reading all her tweets and then I found an article on Google, published by The Print.

It mentioned a video that Indian media is not doing journalism. An activist Kavita Krishnan on her video mentioned about a show titled ‘Madrasa hotspots’ in India today.

Channels from Zee News, Aaj Tak to Network18 like to add the word ‘jihad’ to everything. Corona jihad or zameen jihadlove jihadarthik jihad, and whatnot. But if anyone is waging a holy war today, it is Indian media’s jihad against Indian Muslims and Islam.

The Print

Even now, if you check the live news on YouTube citizens are fighting over hindu-muslim. Yesterday I raised a simple concern about Prime-minister’s speech asking about the motive which ended up by abusing each other. No one even bothered to understand and share their opinion it became a fight of Modi or no Modi.

Today, we might blame migrants for being impatient. We might blame anti social elements to create disturbance in society. We might blame it as a pre-planned operation by opposition. Reason could be many. But what is common that we failed to understand that there is a dissent brewing and it is not about just food and shelter. It is inherent human nature to be insecure, desperate to meet the loved ones and have a hope, which they don’t see today.

Director worried about how intimate scenes will be shot after COVID-19.

As we know, we all are fighting with the novel Coronavirus and maintaining social distance, actually, this is something to something to wonder about how we will behave.

The coronavirus has taught us to live a simple life, staying at home is not so difficult.

But then, will things get to normal as it was?

The well-known Bollywood movie director Shaujit Sarkar has his own worries. The concern he has actually can change the whole pattern of movies, web-series and all similar kinds. It will not just affect Bollywood but all other movie industries in this world.

Shoojit Sarkar wrote on this post- ‘When all that is over, then how will the cinema world shoot the intimate scene in such surroundings. Especially intimate, kissing/hugging scenes. How far or close to? Or will they be dishonest on storytelling in these intimate scenes for some time? ‘

Many celebrities and individuals are reacting to the subject.

Diya Mirza wrote – ‘Guru, your complete means of movie making is integral! So many individuals will come collectively one after the opposite to create a second of unity and efforts. You are speaking about intimate scene … how will that change? Will we arrive carrying masks and gloves? Only time will inform.

Other commented that the flowers of ’70s will be back. However, other’s are hoping that there will be some creativity on that part.

An individual raised another concern

How will the industry shoot at all, if they ban gathering of 50 or more people?

Modi’s macro actions have worked, now India needs micro focus.

After watching the video of the meeting broadcasted by TMC and reading the article on economic times, we can assume that the lockdown might extend for another two weeks.

Modi said that “the priority of the government is to save each and every life”.

But we need more weapons than just lockdown to fight with COVID-19.

Let’s read the opinion of Shekhar Gupta on Modi’s lockdown.

About three weeks back when India started testing selectively then they found that many people coming from overseas were tested positive along with their families that alarmed India to take such a massive action.

There was no major or widespread testing, India’s testing was very low compared to other countries ever lower than Pakistan which led to criticism.

Shekhar Gupta

This Indian lockdown is the severest n the world, the economist carried a chart based on studied by a group in Oxford which ranked the countries on a severity index on their response to COVID-19.

India topped the chart in the world, while India topped the chart according to the intensity of the lockdown, on the other side India was at the bottom of the chart when it came to a fiscal stimulus for the economy in terms of percentage of GDP.

So in severity, India was even ahead of Italy but in fiscal stimulus, India was lowest which you can understand because in the entire group India was by far the poorest of all other countries.

Must read:

In fact, the next poorest countries are China and Malaysia at five times per capita GDP than India.

India as it continues with the lockdown or extends it, it’s risky for the economy or our country. Though the upper or middle classes can overcome the lockdown, it’s the poor and farmers who will face difficulties as the engines of the economy have stopped. As many people live on daily wages for them the situation is critical, either not coronavirus hunger might kill them.

As Shekhar Gupta says unlike the US, India doesn’t have the ability to print money as Donald Trump is doing.

Let me explain, why

India follows a gold standard policy, under which every rupee is backed by a similar value of the gold reserve hence giving actual value to the piece of paper. On the other hand, almost all of the global trade happens over USD, as well as the US, being a resilient economy made it move away from Gold standards and instead make the ‘faith over the economy’ as it’s value driver.

What we need at this point now to find the major weapon or micro focus action and plan.

Also read:

Major possibilities to control, are:

  • Extend the lockdown
  • Completely lift the lockdown
  • Seal the hotspots and gradually lift the lockdown from other areas.

The third option might be a better option as some factories or companies will start fo work, like pharma factories which will again lead to commutation hence communication modes will start to operate but then the spreading of the virus can also spread faster.

So what’s your say in this, comment below. Let the nation know, citizen’s views.
