@MasalaBai In Vashi, Navi Mumbai in Sept: Grandma was there for ~ 10 days, an @NMMConline bus took her from testing centre to jumbo facility. Most patients were asymptomatic like my gran. The facilities (food, hygiene) were good. In case any patient got serious they were taken to hospital.

This is not to say that some of them are not doing what they can to help. They are. But question is, without trained staff is this sustainable and safe? Should the focus be more on add oxygen beds and ICU beds to hospitals?

It's not about "judging" Shweta, for those patients without critical care needs and are able to do things on their own, these will probably work. But for the other category it could mean life or death. https://t.co/qrn7NYyQBT

In the absence of any help from the govt, these centres are providing temporary assistance in managing patients in emergency situations. Let's not judge and rate whatever help is coming our way. 🙏 https://t.co/f2kQUzulG0

Those who have your patients at these mushrooming "covidcare facilities," not hospitals, what has been your experience? Mine's nightmarish. No staff, none to even help them to a washroom, just a few doctors on call for hundreds of patients, promised oxygen, but intermittently.

Bodies floating in rivers, oxygen shortages in hospitals across India, Covid death rate increasing, vaccine shortages across the country ... meanwhile the PM celebrates the power of positivity. https://t.co/fXpJf5dhjJ

Context: I did a lot of running around (literally), sleepless nights, heavy lifting, lack of meals, got 1-2 hours of rest + sleep at max for the past 15 days. Could it just be exhaustion? I also have pain in palm and feet. I am having calcium only right now. No other meds.

Question to recovered covid patients: My symptoms set in April 16 and since then it's been 25 days. I had viral pneumonia (lung CT:10) But in past 2 days I feel extreme fatigue, can barely get out of bed, shortness of breath, mild cough, anxiety, bodyache. Has anyone had this?

Burari, Delhi | A tearful Laxman Tiwari, battling Covid, pleaded for help for 22 hours from his balcony as neighbours, passers-by refused to help transport his parents’ corpses to the crematorium. Welcome to Delhi. Welcome to Hell. https://t.co/NRE0B5RZfu

This is how I'd like to remember her. As a true rebel. The first woman to graduate from a community seen as untouchables. The communist who joined politics despite objections from her father. The woman who didn't compromise on anything. She was her own master. Rip KR Gouriyamma https://t.co/ITjMQ4MKpj

Covid has been hard. I'm struggling to pay my bills. I'm selling some of the pictures I took with the resolution of 6000*4000 good enough for prints up to 21*14. If anyone wants to buy the gumroad link is below. Retweet to help :)

@MasalaBai @VishnuNDTV That’s the problem - getting celebrities to comment on everything - am willing to listen to an expert, all the time. Get the celebrities to do the messaging not opinions. Will help a lot.

My friend’s sister like my baby sister was asked by a neighbour in an elite colony to sleep with him for an oxygen cylinder that she desperately needed for her father; What action can be taken because the b* will obviously deny, no? #HumanityIsDead

@AnanthaPad @MasalaBai @VishnuNDTV Anyone can do the maths. But a media company should highlight the work of experts who would know the nuances that a generalist fiction author will not.

Prisons right now are not only spaces of punitive confinement, but have become death traps for inmates where so many are unwell and without adequate medical attention. https://t.co/g3AoWeVzdI
