New Delhi:

Ten migrant workers will fly to Bihar tomorrow, thanks to their employer, a Delhi farmer, who sponsors their plane tickets.

Their flight to Patna will leave tomorrow at 6 am and from there they will go to their village of Samastipur.

He said that he had made several attempts to send them back to their country of origin on a special Shramik train, but that he had failed.

France bans hydroxychloroquine, an antimalarial drug, for treatment with COVID-19


According to the new French rules, hydroxychloroquine can only be used in clinical trials.


The French government on Wednesday banned the treatment of COVID-19 patients with hydroxychloroquine, a controversial and potentially harmful drug that US President Donald Trump said he took as a preventive measure.

The move comes after two French advisory bodies and the World Health Organization warned this week that the drug – a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and lupus – has been shown to be potentially dangerous in several studies.

The urgency of the coronavirus epidemic prompted some doctors to prescribe the drug despite a lack of research to demonstrate its effectiveness against the new coronavirus.

Among them, a French infectious disease specialist who caught Trump’s ear, who stunned his own administration last week by revealing that he was taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventive against COVID-19.

According to the new French rules, the drug can only be used in clinical trials to test its effectiveness against the coronavirus – which does not allow to know if the French doctor, Didier Raoult, could continue to use it in his hospital. Marseille in the south.

Raoult previously rejected an extensive study published last week in the medical journal The Lancet, which found that administration of hydroxychloroquine or its associated chloroquine actually increased the risk of death for many patients.

Hydroxychloroquine, also used to treat malaria, is sold under the brand name Plaquenil by the French pharmaceutical giant Sanofi, which has promised to offer governments millions of doses if studies prove that it can be used safely in the fight against coronaviruses.

Ravi Shankar Prasad’s jibe at Rahul Gandhi’s


Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said Rahul Gandhi also criticized the Corona warriors.

New Delhi:

Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad tore Rahul Gandhi apart today, accusing the congressional leader of spreading misinformation and playing politics of opportunism. He also wondered if Mr. Gandhi’s allegations are just a ruse to escape responsibility for the situation in Maharashtra – the state has the maximum number of coronavirus cases in the country.

Rahul Gandhi, the minister said, has laid charges against the Prime Minister. He criticized him when the Prime Minister asked people to beat balconies for health workers and when he asked that lights be lit for them.

“With that, Rahul Gandhi only cheers up those who want to divide the nation,” said Prasad.

The head of Congress, he said, also criticized the Indian Council for Medical Research, the nodal agency against Coronavirius. He tweeted about gasoline and diesel when their prices went up in states ruled by Congress. He did not even spare the “corona warriors”, said the minister.

The BJP’s reply came a day after Mr. Gandhi, at a virtual press conference, said contrary to government expectations, even four phases of foreclosure were not enough to contain the coronavirus.

“India is the only country where coronavirus cases have increased exponentially despite a blockage,” said Gandhi. We want to ask the government, what is its strategy regarding the opening of India and what precautions they will take, how do they think and how will they support migrants and our states? “, he added.

He also expressed concern that if the lock is lifted without any concrete plan, the country will face a second wave of coronavirus which will be “extremely devastating”.

Asked about the situation in Maharsahtra, where Congress is part of the ruling alliance and the government, Mr. Gandhi said that there is a difference between leading the government and supporting a government.

“We support the government of Maharashtra, but we are not in the key decision-making role in Maharashtra,” he said, adding that Maharashtra needs the full support of the central government because the state is waging a very difficult battle. difficult.

British Minister declares to go from rage to lockdown trip to Boris Johnson’s aide Dominic Cummings


Dominic Cummings said he acted reasonably and did not break the lock rules. (FILE)


British minister said Wednesday it was time to “move on” after Prime Minister’s chief adviser Boris Johnson provoked outrage and widespread contempt on a 400-km (250-mile) road trip ) during the coronavirus shutdown.

Dominic Cummings refused to resign after it was revealed that he had driven from London to the north of England in March with his 4-year-old son and his wife, who was sick at the time, to be close to parents. Johnson supported his advisor.

Opinion polls show that confidence in Johnson has plummeted since the Cummings story appeared in The Mirror and The Guardian on Friday, with some openly criticizing Johnson and Cummings on social media.

Opposition parties and some conservative lawmakers also demanded the resignation of Cummings, the man behind the successful 2016 Brexit campaign and Johnson’s electoral victory in 2019. He refused to apologize.

“Now I think it’s time for all of us to move on,” said BBC Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick, adding that people wanted the government to talk about issues other than Cummings.

“That doesn’t mean it’s not a big deal or that people don’t care much about it, but I think there’s a lot more we need to focus on now, like the virus and the virus. ‘economy.”

While nearly 70 million British citizens suffered the most severe lockdown in peacetime history, the news that the second most powerful man in the British government had made such a long road trip was greeted with dismay by many.

The daily Daily Star, a tabloid who likes to report celebrity sex scandals and frolics, even offered the reader a cut-out Cummings mask.

“FREE Do what you want and destroy everyone,” said the Star on the front page. “Wear this practical Dom face cover and you will get away with the murder.”

YouGov found that 71% of people believed that Cummings had broken the lock rules and 59% believed that he should resign.


Just days before Cummings’ trip, Johnson imposed a lockdown in the UK and asked people to stay at home. He said on March 23 that people “should not meet family members who do not live with you”.

Cummings said he had acted reasonably and had not broken the lockdown rules – a position supported by Johnson and high-ranking ministers who have writhed in the past few days trying to explain whether the lockdown is still in force and, if so, to whom it applies. He refused to apologize.

There was confusion about fines – a minimum of 60 pounds ($ 74) – imposed by the police on thousands of ordinary people for breaking the lock rules.

Jenrick said there would be no formal review of fines for ordinary people and that it was up to the police to decide.

“There will be no formal review, it’s the police, the police follow the law and the guidelines,” he said.

“DJ” on UP Field plays loud music to fight locusts, UP Cop Tweets Video


The video was tweeted by a senior UP cop.

While 10 Uttar Pradesh districts remain on alert after clouds of locusts were spotted in Mahoba and Jhansi, a video shared by a senior police officer shows the different strategies farmers have adopted to protect their fields from locusts with short horns.

Locusts entered the state after attacking crops in neighboring regions of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, officials said.

In the nearly 30-second clip released by a UP police officer based in Jhansi, Rahul Shrivastava, a vehicle equipped with speakers – known locally as a “ DJ vehicle ” used for music in wedding processions – can be seen as loud music played through the speakers

“DJs (disc jockeys) are not only for singing and dancing … they are also effective in frightening armies of locusts. Everyone sees a new morning … You can also knock utensils or make noise to scare them, “tweet posted in Hindi reads.

Locusts entered Rajasthan from Pakistan earlier this month and then drifted to other parts of western India. Locusts are often spotted in the country, but on a very small scale, an official from the Union’s environment ministry told PTI

“This attack is huge. It is a unique situation over a decade and it is very badly synchronized for us because we are already dealing with a coronavirus,” Soumitra Dasgupta, general inspector of wildlife, told PTI.

“Local officials have been put on alert and asked to stay prepared with chemicals in tractor-mounted sprayers, electric sprayers and firefighters,” said a government spokesman for Uttar Pradesh.

In Jhansi, locusts have been spotted in the past two days and farmers have said they should alert a control room whenever they see a swarm.

In Mahoba district, partial damage has been reported to vegetables on 25 hectares and a detailed assessment of the loss is underway, said the spokesman.

In Rajasthan, pesticides were sprayed on locust swarms at two locations in Dausa district on Monday evening.

On Tuesday, some swarms moved to Karauli and other surrounding areas, said Rajasthan’s agriculture commissioner Om Prakash.

He said that Jaipur and Dausa had now been rid of the locusts.

Locust activity in Karauli in Rajasthan has triggered an alert in Jhansi, Lalitpur, Jalaun and Auraiya in the UP as well as in adjacent districts like Hamirpur, Kannauj, Etawah and Kanpur Dehat.

UP Deputy Director of Agriculture Kamal Katiyar said a team from Kota, Rajasthan is helping to control locusts.

Farmers said to contact the control room because information sharing is important, said Jhansi district magistrate Andra Vamsi.

“This is an emergency, and we must remain vigilant. This swarm has traveled through Iran, Pakistan, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. Two days ago, a large number of locusts were killed as a result of spraying chemicals, “he said.

In some places in the UP, farmers have been advised to beat “thalis” to hunt these insects.

In Mr. Vamsi’s district, the authorities installed public address systems in fields where crops could be attacked.

“Farmers have been asked to play loud music to hunt insects and save crops like moong and vegetables,” said the official.

Locusts do not attack animals or humans, but can devastate crops and other green areas.

Vamsi said a team of seven members of the Center were on tour in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh to resolve the problem.
