Covid19 is not a picnic, it's a monstrous villian!

 

Whatever any naysayers may tell you, this is something Man has never ever seen before. From relatively stable patients crashing suddenly, to CT scans consistently showing savage infiltrations in almost all patients, to the unpredictable response of the myriad drugs in our armamentarium, this is one monstrous villain that is truly treacherous.

Will you vote for Satya Pal Malik if he contests?

 

Don't be taken in by the crocodile tears of the GFP, CONGRESS, or the MGP at Malik’s departure. They are playing to the Raj Bhavan gallery. Their economic and political agenda is a splitting-twin image of the current BJP dispensation. READ

The Covid peak madness is calling YOU

 

Those who have recovered from the virus, and those willing to use PPE, please volunteer your services at the hospital. For any small help will be a big deal. Can we have a volunteer WhatsApp group established by willing, recovered youth?? We need to bumble along these next two months. And stay alive. READ

Who is the real enemy of Claude?

 

The real enemy, albeit unwittingly, of Claude Alvares is not the mining mafia or the venal politicians or grubby cops. His real enemy and biggest betrayers are... READ

How Pvt Doctors can help in the Covid Fight

 

Now that the Corona pandemic has struck, we are suddenly seen as angels or warriors or the suicide squad who should be prepared to die for man, woman and child. And trust me; despite the horror picture they paint of us, we are actually quite human: we have a heart, we certainly have a conscience, and we are prepared to serve. When the State needs us!! But guess we won't serve like goats to the slaughter, as if Bakri-Id is round the corner. READ

TERRIFYING, TERRIFYING, TERRIFYING

 

So my dear Pramod and Vishwajeet, after the two of you have finished gouging one another's political eyes out and sharpening knives to thrust into God knows who's back, please, please get us these bloody drugs. If anyone of us gets truly serious, the kitchen sink has to be flung at this virus. Nothing else will do. READ

Hydroxychloroquine: A Rope To Cling On To Fight Covid!!! (By Dr Oscar Rebelo)

 

Doctors and nurses in India may have been infected, but there have been no wave of deaths among them as in the US/UK / EUROPE. Could HCQS be the answer? In India you have had a large number of brave cops and sanitation workers succumbing.Are they not being prescribed HCQS? Or are they careless in adhering to protocol? Can we check whether all health workers connected to Mangor took their HCQS regularly? READ

Wake Up & Defeat Community Transmission (By Dr Oscar Rebelo)

 

You are stretching your health resources, flooding beds and frankly achieving nothing. Asymptomatic Covid positives can be safely home-managed. Give them a pulse oximeter, tell them to check oxygen levels regularly. If it drops to below 85 to 90, and if they get breathless, bring them to hospital. Delhi and Mumbai learnt it the hard way and now are keeping asymptomatic patients home. READ

Dress Rehearsal over, the Covid Tsunami is there, I can see… (By Dr Oscar Rebelo)

 

All these 2 months was like a dress rehearsal for a kindergarten play. You will now desperately, desperately need your doctors, (especially the junior and senior residents and junior consultants) and the army of silent, uncomplaining nurses and the medical attendants who will be cleaning your crap and urine as you struggle on a ventilator. All your diamonds and political contacts will count for nothing once this circus truly pummels into town. READ
