You are right @DilliDurAst The AAP Govt in Delhi is focused more on data management than disease management. Banning private labs from doing tests at this critical juncture is a disastrous decision. This will cost many lives. twitter.com/DilliDurAst/st…

Considering the latest document on the #ICMR website no emergency case should be denied healthcare and sample for #COVID19 can be tested. But ground reality is different. No doctor is willing to prescribe a request for testing and #ICMR should look into that. twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…

@virsanghvi In fact, I agree that icmr shouldn't have been given the task of managing the pandemic since inception itself. They are a toothless body with only research experience. No expertise in administration or practicing medicine. But which Babu cares!

@virsanghvi When 80% are asymptomatic (as CM says), how can you wait for symptoms to test. A symptomatic still infects. So, it's dangerous.

The ICMR policy on testing is: 1. A death sentence to patients who have covid symptoms (but no contact with a lab confirmed case or not from containment zone). 2 A sentence to get covid for those who must be admitted to hospital for other ailments. twitter.com/AmbarishSatwik…

"Media is advised to refrain from such reporting"....... Does the government really think this is the way to form narrative on the LAC situation? In democracies, the government provides information not diktats. twitter.com/PIB_India/stat…

Remembering the legendary actor, who was also a great politician, and even greater human being , Sunil Dutt on his birth anniversary. Here he is talking about his inspirations; Mahatma Gandhi ,Jawaharlal Nehru and Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. @PriyaDutt_INC. @duttsanjay .

FIR against Vinod Dua. One of the iconic journalists and the very best this country has produced. As per FIR he is threat to the nation, if so then every journalist is. This is nothing but to muzzle the voice of freedom and press.

@virsanghvi Perhaps there is a distinction between the more "western" secularism that Nehru and Bose, despite their differences, espoused, & that of Gandhi? @PatrickFrench has argued, indeed, that "by his use of Hinduism as a political tool, Gandhi unwittingly opened a Pandora's Box ..."

@DilliDurAst Earlier they said 75 % positive cases were asymptomatic, now they say no point in testing asymptomatic patients! indiatoday.in/world/story/co… @virsanghvi

Gandhi wanted Ram Rajya let alone Hindurashtra. Indeed, things would have been much different. Appeasement to none , Service to all. twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…

@MayankJ74502622 But isn’t more and extensive testing the right way to alleviate fear? When you know you can get tested and treated if needed, you’ll be much more open n willing to venture out and start your normal activities than if you’re denied tests. @virsanghvi

The Taste: Suppose we had listened to Savarkar & not to Gandhi in 1947. Suppose India had become a Hindu Rashtra not a liberal-secular state. Would our history have been very different ? hindustantimes.com/books/the-tast…

While people have posted gorgeous coloured pictures of the #moon from last night, I was engaged in a webinar ☹️ This is all that my phone could capture, at 830 pm. This morning the photo doesn't look so bad. Sharing @virsanghvi @seemagoswami @DilipMehtaEsq @DMDSC @AskDrShashank

@virsanghvi Yes I believe so . I have the circular and I know 19 firms have been asked not to
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@virsanghvi Yes. They have not allowed testing of asymptomatic patients. They have even issued notices in mumbai to doctors stating why have they tested asymtomatic patients and that the doctors licence would be cancelled against this deed
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@virsanghvi Both ICMR and State Govts have blood on their hands. ICMR’s test guidelines have been very restrictive from beginning. And while State Govt CAN put forth a relaxed testing policy,testing more than recommended,they don’t.Testing more section of people thn recomended should be fine
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
Gujarat is also using that loophole to reduce testings even when the cases are on the rise. twitter.com/arvindgunaseka…
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@virsanghvi Either way it doesn’t make sense. While countries are doing everything to test their people(China included), our state and central governments are more bothered about displaying low numbers even if artificially. Everyone is playing to the gallery. #COVID19India

.⁦@virsanghvi⁩: If in 1947 India had chosen Hindu nationalism, rather than secularism, as its founding ideology, would it have been able to hold the country together in the crucial decades after Partition? [My view: highly doubtful.] hindustantimes.com/books/the-tast…

@virsanghvi @atitshukla Terms of license/approval by ICMR to pvt labs to conduct covid tests? Delhi should give carte blanche to labs to test at will, but other states need not? I am all for testing freely. Tests don't make cases, they detect ones that are already there. Higher no.= better detection

@virsanghvi The upper castes would have ensured that no social emancipation laws are passed. We would have resembled a medieval caste-ridden society at the bottom and a privileged 5-star bania/brahmin society at the top.
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@dhume @virsanghvi Probably not. India is where it is because it clearly allied itself with liberal western values and ideals. Else it would've gone the same way as Pakistan and Bangladesh, probably with even greater balkanization.
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@virsanghvi Wasn’t this from day 1. We tested less from the start and now have increased it but still woefully short. Need we say more how wrong where we have been with an #unplannedlockdown without adequate testing The writing is on the wall
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@virsanghvi Without widespread testing, central & state govts can continue claiming 'all's well'.It's more a political call not to test unless person is symptomatic. So yes,epidemic won't be contained, the numbers will steadily climb. My forecast: India will be no. 2 behind US soon in no's.
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@LangaMahesh @AnushaSoni23 @GargiRawat @virsanghvi Citing mortality rate is very low here, Govts not taking Covid-19 seriously anymore. Many see this just as another kind of flu which vanishes after 14 days if no co-morbidity. That’s why we are witnessing relaxations in not just lockdown but also in discharge policy & diagnosis.
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@virsanghvi Is it shortage of kits or nervousness about accurate figures. Either way.this is not what successful countries have done. But for the 4 hr notice lockdown we should have been on a downward curve now. Our immunity, maybe a milder strain, and luck have been helpful so far
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
The govt going lenient on Asymptomatic patients is the worst strategy of all times. It is the asymptomatic patients who spread the virus far more than the symptomatic ones, because the latter is physically confined until recovery, once tested positive. twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
So the Delhi Govt is not lying. It is an ICMR guideline not to test asymptomatic persons. Given that 70% of cases are asymptomatic but still infectious, not surprised that India hasn’t been able to flatten the curve & that cases are going up. Doesn’t ICMR owe us an explanation? twitter.com/jadookar/statu…
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@virsanghvi @LangaMahesh Asymptomatic patients are not being tested in Gujarat either. In fact, even if someone tests positive, family members are not tested if they do not show any symptoms. Similarly, asymptomatic patients are being discharged without testing and being asked to home quarantine
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@virsanghvi Meanwhile, New York's @NYGovCuomo is urging people to get a test even if they feel just cold symptoms. And has set up hundreds of testing facilities statewide.
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@virsanghvi It says you can test an asymptomatic direct or high risk contact. The problem lies with state governments who do not want private labs to test more because they do not have control over numbers then and hence make threatening rules for the same.
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
Not testing asymptotic cases in the beginning of pandemic ( when we were short of kits) could have been justified. Now that we have reached a clear stage of community spread, not testing asymptotic cases(at least in hot spot areas) can’t meet any scientific justification. twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@virsanghvi And theonly way one would know of being infected is when you develops symptoms. In that case, if you dont live in containment zone, no travel history or ILI then you wont be tested. @ICMRDELHI & govts are in denial about community transmission, that is the root of this disaster
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@virsanghvi @AnushaSoni23 But the person could be a contact of a confirmed case. These guidelines seem to be an attempt to conserve resources. The strategy has not changed since May 18 though obviously there is a need for change apparently.
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
So if I operate on a patient who presents later with symptoms and become positive, my whole team is at risk of contracting the same. The plea filed by govt in SC has laid the onus on doctors for saving themselves. Tie our hands/ feet & expect us to treat patients. How ridiculous twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
These stupid guidelines by the ICMR is the one reason that world's harshest & longest lockdown failed so badly in controlling the pandemic.. From the start they tried to keep the tesing Number as low as possible to keep the case numbers artificially low. twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@virsanghvi Don't know about ICMR guidelines. But I know for a fact that asymptomatic people are not being tested in Mumbai even though they have living in close proximity with a covid+ asymptomatic person
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
What India is doing now, by not testing asymptomatic cases, is suppressing numbers and preventing panic. Because the real numbers will destroy the business climate and economy. And it is for the same reason the Chinese hid the real numbers at Wuhan twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
This was from Day 1 : Only symptomatic and high risk are to be tested, which few folks amongst were fighting vehemently against since we wanted testing for all. All govts dept both at center & state are complicit; all COVID stats in India are worthless. twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…

@SukumarMehta1 @virsanghvi This is dated 17.03.20. Is there any fresh guidance also or the same one is continuing. ICMR should clarify on this. Patients can't be denied treatment.

@virsanghvi In MP health department issued guidelines stating that if a patient is asymptomatic then he should be released without even checking whether he is covid negative or not. Also other guideline is test only those patient which are symptomatic. Dunno why

@Srambical @virsanghvi Thought provoking article.Vastly different from the usual subjects that you write on. "Post Colonial Assam" by Mrinal Talukdar may help give an insight to NE political scenario post 1947 - major chapters devoted to Assam political, but earlier it was all NEFA hence linked
