    Kindly increase your knowledge and serch it also In 2015, the Institute published successful research on whether a bat coronavirus could be made to infect HeLa. A team from the Institute engineered a hybrid virus, combining a bat coronavirus with a SARS virus that had been adapted to grow in mice and mimic human disease. The hybrid virus was able to infect human cells.

    During every crisis we have seen this "chasing its own tail" phenomenon, and the sad part is that no media asks for accountability. The forthrightness with which the US media (in spite of all its biases for and against the President) asks bold and uncomfortable questions of the President is a refreshing change from abysmal obsequiousness of India media, especially the TV medium.

    Just common sense tells that it's safe to wear masks as we now know how this virus spreads. Why do we have to do any kind of research to get to this truth. I think Shekarji should do some research to address issues like whether partial lifting of lockdown is possible after some time and big cities should be under longer periods of lockdown than smaller cities and towns, and whether that should be in phased manner to different sections of the economy.

    It's also kind of numbers game (meaning no. of individuals) and traceability from passport info but authorities definitely shouldn't have been caught by surprise like this. I can understand if they couldn't gauge exact number of migrant workers in metros they hardly made any arrangements realising that daily wage workers will stay put as long as they can as they will miss out chance of earning if they return to their native too soon. If there weren't already enough reasons, this is one more reasons why growth centers should shift to smaller cities and not keep on concentrating in metros which are already too big

    In New York alone more than 230 cops have been infected with coronavirus. In Italy, doctors and nurses have been instrumental in spread of this virus. There are serious allegations against China that it has released a virus created for biological warfare. Hence, this is not a normal pandemic that the world is facing. India's defence has to step in a big way instead of being silent spectators. Only the army is trained and equipped to deal with such crisis. PPE is not enough for those who are in the frontline. Government immediately needs to order Indian garment industry to churn out millions of hazmat suits and other protective gear for our doctors, nurses, police, military and paramilitary personnel. India has 43 OFBs and more than eight DPSUs. Those OFBs who are into manufacturing of uniforms for our military and paramilitary forces need to start manufacturing hazmat suits, PPE and other protective gear for those providing essential services. Failure to do this may result in a situation where there are no doctors, police, nurses, delivery boys, vegetable vendors, security guards, grocers, cab drivers.
