  • India surpasses global record of 315,000 daily COVID cases

    India has reported almost 315,000 new COVID infections on Thursday. It’s surpassing the record for infections in a single day previously set by US in January.

    India’s Health ministry data on Thursday showed 314,835 new infections in the past 24 hours, the most of any country since the pandemic began, taking total cases to 15.9 million, the world’s second highest. The country has now added more than 200,000 cases every day since 15 April. There were 2,074 fatalities, bringing the total death toll to almost 185,000.

    New Delhi’s hospitals warned that patient could die without fresh oxygen supplies. Nearly 500 tons of oxygen was supplied to Delhi on Wednesday but this fell short of the required 700 tons per day. Late Wednesday the Delhi High Court ordered the government to ensure safe passage of oxygen supplies from factories to hospitals across India.

    The country’s long-underfunded healthcare system is being stretched to the limit by a devastating second wave of the pandemic blamed on a ‘double mutant’ variant and ‘super-spreader’ mass gatherings.

    Amid the explosion of coronavirus infections in India, election rallies and voting continued in West Bengal state. For allowing the voting amidst a pandemic and also for urging Hindu devotees to continue attending the Kumbh festival : the largest human pilgrimage anywhere in the world, Indian prime minister Narendra Modi is facing criticism.

  • Indonesia’s navy searching for missing 53 onboard with submarine

    Indonesia’s navy is searching for a missing submarine with 53 onboard that went missing north of the resort island during a military exercise. The submarine was carrying 49 crew members, its commander and three gunners – has not been seen or heard from since Wednesday when it was conducting a torpedo drill in waters north of Bali.
    The country’s military chief, Hadi Tjahjanto, said on Wednesday night, “The KRI Nanggala 402 was participating in a training exercise when it missed a scheduled reporting call. The vessel is believed to have disappeared in waters about 60 miles (95km) north of Bali.”
    Tjahjanto also said the navy had deployed scores of ships to search the area, including a hydrographic survey ship, and had asked for help from Singapore and Australia, which have submarine rescue vessels.
    French navy vice admiral Antoine Beaussant told a news agency that the submarine would have a safety descent level of 250 meters, and “if it went down to rest at 700 meters the likelihood is it would have broken up”.
    Indonesia is deploying four warships to search for the submarine, including a Rigel warship equipped with sophisticated sonar that can precisely detect the vessel’s position. Indonesia has requested Australia and Singapore to associate them.

  • BRIT awards to host 4,000 audiences as part of COVID research

    A live audience of 4,000 people will attend the BRIT awards on 11 May in London as part of a government-led research program into how crowds can safely return to mass participants’ events. It would be the first major indoor music event with a live audience as the country emerges from COVID19 lockdown.
    The awards will be held on next month which is pushed back from the traditional February date because of the pandemic. The hope of organizers was always to have some kind of live audience for a show which will feature performances by Dua Lipa, Headie One and Arlo Parks. 2,500 tickets are being made available to key workers from greater London, who can apply via a ballot system. They will not have to wear face masks inside the arena but will have to provide proof of a negative lateral flow test result to enter the venue.
    The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) announced on Thursday that the Brits will be joining events such as the current world’s snooker championships in Sheffield’s Crucible theatre as a pilot in the government’s events research program.

    Geoff Taylor, chief executive of the British Phonographic Industry and the BRITs said, “not only will we be celebrating the brilliant music and artists that have helped us through the pandemic, but we hope it will provide a path for the return of live music that fans and artists have so sorely missed.”

    The awards are due to be hosted by Jack Whitehall for the fourth year running and will be broadcast live on ITV.
