We have now completed first phase of lockdown which lasted for three weeks. People have to go through next phase also without anxiety or fear. For this we need to have some more motivational activities to unite nation's souls! Hope like two activities in the first phase PM announces a few more.

One activity I like is doing exercise in sunlight in the evening. This may result in strengthening immunity system by accumulating Vitamin D and also through exercises like breathing exercises. Breathing exercise may also reduce anxiety. Any way any other secular exercise is also fine.

Coronavirus Mutation Found in India “Raises Alarm”, Could Hinder Development of Vaccine: Study
This mutation leads to a “weaker receptor binding capability” in the novel coronavirus, which is proof that change has occurred in the part of the spike protein that allows the virus to bind with human cells.

As scientists have possessed more knowledge about this receptor than any other, they have so far been working on creating antibodies that target this specific receptor. But now, with the mutation modifying the receptor’s structure, the entire research work done on this subject could possibly end up becoming useless.
The mutant coronavirus the study refers to was first sampled by the National Institute of Virology from a patient in Kerala, India in January. The full genome sequence, however, was released to the international community last month—a delay that some researchers find quite surprising.
The SCMP report has quoted an unnamed researcher as saying that the findings of this study will need further verification, as there remains the possibility of the mutation being caused by a technical error during the sequencing process. There is also a chance of the results produced by the computer simulation being misleading.

Emerging Technologies – Opportunities from the challenges posed by Covid-19
A credible policy and regulatory framework has thus become important for not only putting in place necessary safeguards but also for creating an enabling environment for new market opportunities and innovations. An agile governance structure that is sensitised to the needs of the community and the changing technology, and willing to work in collaboration with the ecosystem, can help India leverage the benefits that frontier technology has to offer. The experience of the past few weeks has demonstrated the capacity and willingness of the Government to act on these lines. Going forward, this needs to be institutionalised through appropriate mechanisms that allow for closer interaction and constant feedback mechanisms with the stakeholder communities, be it the academia, industry, startups, incubation centers and R&D hubs, to facilitate rapid growth for meeting the present and future challenges.

Opinion | How to fund innovation in the time of coronavirus

Covid-19: What India must do next| Analysis
The sixth step, research, has to not only meet these defensive challenges, but also launch an all-out offensive against the enemy. We must innovate at every step, use our fabled “jugaad” as a stop-gap defensive measure, while our premier research institutions work to provide new weapons in this fight.

While the challenges are severe, the unified response of the government, industry and academia in this time of crisis has been heartening. For example, to test widely, we need diagnostic kits. As global supplies of kits and their components start becoming scarce, Indian industry and start-ups, supported by academia, are developing indigenous alternatives. Medical researchers, epidemiologists, molecular biologists, and technocrats are jointly formulating strategies for minimum testing for maximum insight.

Apps like Aarogya Setu leverage India’s digital and telecom infrastructure and tech talent to supplement community testing and provide virtual intelligence. Previous investment in high-quality basic research is also paying off. The recent development of futuristic alternatives such as a Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR)-based paper strip test, which may eliminate the need for expensive and scarce real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) machines, came from years of background work.

While issues remain in expeditiously bringing new tech to market — for example, sufficient quantities of the input materials for the CRISPR test are difficult to find — a strong academia-industry combine is working hard to overcome the obstacles. Meanwhile, numerous research labs across the nation are using their infrastructure to enhance the national Reverse Transcription (RT)-PCR testing capacity. Young companies funded by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and the Department of Biotechnology industry programmes are coming out with affordable and simple indigenous diagnostic systems that can be used by local centres without advanced infrastructure. Together, these form a viable plan to widen the testing net and effectively determine local and personal risks.

Similarly, procurement challenges in personal protective equipment (PPE), hospital beds, oxygen, ventilators, and newer anti-viral drugs, must be met by focused science. Towards this, Indian research organisations are using cross-sectoral strengths to create the necessary pipeline of products. When biohazard suit production was constrained by the unavailability of seam sealing tape, a sealant glue from submarine applications was substituted by Defence Research and Development Organisation, ensuring that these suits can be produced in large numbers, forming a robust line of defence for frontline health workers. An indigenous oxygen concentrator from the CSIR Venture Centre may make the difference between life and death for hypoxic patients, if central oxygen supply runs short.

Lifesaving drugs, with promise in Covid-19 treatment, are being synthesised by CSIR labs in collaboration with pharma majors. Inspiration from traditional medical systems is guiding the ministry of Ayush’s efforts. The idea is to not blindly copy anyone, but to take the best of what is available and by using universally-recognised scientific principles, modify it to local contexts and needs. We have bought ourselves time to prepare and have the scientific capacity to deliver. This war will be won by smart data-driven defence, coupled with strategic offence.

While the medical side defends with what they have, the research side must support them with what they need. Importantly, we must not take our eyes off the real solution — effective treatment and vaccines; developed in India for the world. We have the leadership to inspire and mobilise the public. Can science guide decisions to shape the public health response and to restart the economy? If we do this well, not only will we save grief to hundreds of thousands of Indians, but also contribute to global good and emerge a stronger nation.

India shuns Gulf producers, diverts oil to strategic reserves
India will divert 19 million barrels of Gulf oil from state-run firms to strategic petroleum reserves (SPRs), skipping direct purchases from producers to help refiners get rid of extra oil as their storage is full, three sources said.

India’s decision to divert cargoes meant for state refiners will not soak up excess oil from the market following the demand collapse caused by the coronavirus pandemic, but it will help local companies to avoid demurrage charges at a time of expensive freight.

It also secures purchases at a low price.

Propagation Analysis and Mitigation Suggestive Actions

Covid-19: What India must do next| Analysis
When physician Harvey Fineberg recently talked about 10 weeks to crush the curve in America, he outlined six key steps. With slight modifications, these are the following: One, establish a clear command system. Two, test widely. Three, protect health workers with proper gear and equip hospitals for a surge in demand. Four, determine and track who is infected, likely to be infected, exposed, unexposed, or recovered. Five, inspire and mobilise the public. And last, but not the least, learn from research to continually improve. These principles apply equally to India, but the relative difficulties of each step are very different.

For India, the command system is clear and active, the public is engaged, but testing is low, the determination of the five classes (of step four) is not yet clear, and supply chains of protective gear and hospital equipment are thin and fraying.

The sixth step, research, has to not only meet these defensive challenges, but also launch an all-out offensive against the enemy. We must innovate at every step, use our fabled “jugaad” as a stop-gap defensive measure, while our premier research institutions work to provide new weapons in this fight.

Whether reduced pollution has reduced death rates during lockdown? Other factors like reduced accidents, deaths due to non-availability of alcohol, ambulance blockades should also be counted.

While, reduced human activity on account of lockdown has helped animals move freely in Western Ghats, it also has indirectly reduced the instances of forest fire, they claim.

  • Karnataka and Telangana states recently made public the names, addresses and contact details of everyone under quarantine.
  • People's Health Movement, a group working for equitable health access in India, said several people on the list complained of harassment, public shaming, and in some cases, eviction.
  • The group wrote to the Indian health minister that such a "breach of confidentiality" would "drive the disease underground" and deter people from reporting their illnesses.
Mass monitoring cannot become the norm post Covid-19
But the argument in favour of a mass monitoring system is incomplete unless it takes into account the limitations, the unknowns, data protection and privacy laws and the cybersecurity risks. To be effective, such apps will need to use Bluetooth and cannot solely depend on tower locations. What Apple, Google and the authorities must consider is the need to reduce false positives, given Bluetooth’s inherent weaknesses in range and accuracy.
Also, when building a mass monitoring system, regulators must be mindful of the need to share data with other countries openly to be able to make progress. Hence they must tap into technologies like blockchain and AI that can act as game-changers in this exercise. What is also relevant to this thread is the debate on data localisation. While it’s a no-brainer that data must be hosted locally to comply with privacy laws, what it doesn’t guarantee against is looming cybersecurity issues.

Exodus of migrant workers into Karnataka continues, activists pin blame on state governments

Coronavirus: Exodus ebbs after seal
The court said it would not like to create further confusion by issuing directions on measures the government is already taking.The PILs, filed by advocates Alakh Alok Srivastava and Rashmi Bansal, sought relief, including food, water, medicines and proper medical facilities, for thousands of migrant workers leaving for their native places after being rendered homeless and jobless due to the lockdown.

During the hearing, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for Centre, said migration needs to be stopped to prevent the spread of the virus and the Centre, as well as the states, have taken requisite steps to deal with it.

But Srivastava pointed to the lack of cohesion and cooperation between states on the matter. And Bansal said medical and safety measures, including sanitisers, ought to be provided to keep the migrants safe and healthy. But the bench remarked, “You are assuming that government is not doing anything. It is advising us on what steps to be taken. Let us see what they are doing. Let them file a common reply on both these petitions.”

I was thinking that there will be some virtual laboratory simulational stuffs in this website. It would be interesting to explore how India can build virtual laboratory simulators in a way accessible to all. What is the internet speed needed if students are allowed to use virtual laboratory simulators in scheduled timeslot available through different servers distributed across country. Of course we have to automate scheduling task also.

Assuming government itself bears cost of electronic gadgets & online education fees of poor students how much budget is needed if educational services are provided by private organizations?

How many startups in India are working on artificial intelligence based virtual online teachers? (not robot teachers). May end up in teaching job losses.

Okay, here is virtual labs but is it accessible to all?

I don't think portals & TVs controlled by the government will not lead to necessary innovations in educational materials. Let us encourage competition.
