No need to panic, COVID-19 is something we can easily conquer: Padma Bhushan Dr D Nageshwar Reddy

In a chat with The New Indian Express Editor GS Vasu, the internationally renowned medical expert shares two key findings that give India reason to hope.

HYDERABAD: At a time of paranoia and panic over how long this corona-fuelled lockdown may stretch, internationally-renowned medical expert Dr D Nageshwar Reddy has good news. "This is something we can easily conquer. There’s no need to panic,” he says, while adding that the current lockdown “should not prolong beyond 3-4 weeks”.

In a chat with The New Indian Express Editor GS Vasu, the Hyderabad-based gastroenterologist, who was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 2016 and who currently serves as the Chairman of the Asian Institute of Gastroenterology, shares two key findings that give India reason to hope - one emerging from a study on genome sequencing and another from research on the impact of temperature on the virus.

This thread is opened just to share sensational news, breaking news, Headlines on all topics...to update members

It is my earnest effort to serve as a NEWS CHANNEL.

But may not be able to cover all areas, fields of activity, like Science and Technology, Sports, Religion, etc.. it is vast...

Wish to cover current affairs and politics..

Please feel free to offer your valued opinions...

To start with..

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some of the Medias don’t follow the well established ethics at times..

Where is neutral and fair reporting…?

There are occasions of ‘Twisting of facts, paid news, Biased reporting, distoring, etc etc

Are they taking advantage of ‘freedom of speech’ enshrined in our Constitution..??

One Central Minister recently remarked certain medias as ‘Presstitude’..

Readers’ comments: Media should not have publicised CAG report on India’s ammunition shortage

Media ethics debate


It is very wrong for the media to disclose the findings of the CAG report about India not having enough ammunition to fight a long war (“Indian Army lacks ammunition and cannot fight a war longer than 10 days, says CAG report”). Given the current tension with China and Pakistan, such news will definitely boost our neighbouring countries’ confidence. It could encourage them to attack our motherland.

Media outlets should think before positing news such as this that could have a detrimental effect on our country and security. – Sachin Patel
***

Such information should not have been made public. The CAG should have filed the report as a classified one. The news comes as a shock and is embarrassing for the Indian government given the stand-off with China at the Dokolam tri-junction and the aggressive stance taken by China. – Anil Jadhav
Medium matters

The author needs to do more research before making sweeping claims such as “research supports learning in one’s home language” (“Switching medium of instruction in schools from local languages to English is not educational reform”).

Thanks for visiting the thread and your feed back sir

As suggested, will open separate threads in appropriate categories in future.

Just tried as an experiment and now found that it won't work.

Thanks again.
