Coronavirus could kill as many as 200,000 Americans, warns US government infectious disease expert



Dr Anthony Fauci, the leading US government infectious disease expert, offered a grim prediction on Sunday: the coronavirus could kill as many as 200,000 Americans.

 "I mean, looking at what we’re seeing now, I would say between 100,000 and 200,000 … deaths,” Fauci told CNN’s State of the Union, though he added: "I just don’t think that we really need to make a projection, when it’s such a moving target that you can so easily be wrong and mislead people.”

Dr Anthony Fauci
According to researchers at Johns Hopkins University, by Sunday morning the US had confirmed nearly 125,000 cases of Covid-19, a respiratory illness especially dangerous to older people and those with health problems, and 2,188 deaths. In New York, the state worst hit, Governor Andrew Cuomo on Sunday announced a death toll of 965, 237 up on the figure the day before reported The Guardian.

The US has the most confirmed cases of any country. Nearly 700,000 cases have been confirmed worldwide and about 32,000 people have died.

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Fauci about Trump’s suggestion on Saturday of quarantining New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, an idea ultimately abandoned in favor of a strong advisory urging residents not to engage in non-essential travel.

"We had very intensive discussions last night at the White House with the president,” Fauci said.

"As you know, the original proposal was to consider seriously an enforceable quarantine. After discussions with the president, we made it clear, and he agreed, that it would be much better to do what’s called a strong advisory.

 "And the reason for that is that you don’t want to get to the point where you’re … enforcing things that would create a bigger difficulty, morale and otherwise, when you could probably accomplish the same goal.

"One of the issues is that the infection rate in New York City, in the New York City area, is about 56% of all of the new infections in the country are coming from that area. That’s terrible suffering for the people of New York, which I feel myself personally, as a New Yorker.

"So what was trying to be done is to get people, unless there’s necessary travel, so, all nonessential travel, to just hold off, because what you don’t want is people traveling from that area to other areas of the country, and inadvertently and innocently infecting other individuals.
------------
Trump says keeping US Covid-19 deaths to 100,000 would be a ‘very good job’
------------
"We felt the better part of – way to do this would be an advisory, as opposed to a very strict quarantine. And the president agreed. And that’s why he made that determination last night. And I believe he tweeted it out last night.”

Trump did so after New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, told CNN it would lead to "chaos and mayhem” and amount to a "federal declaration of war”.

Also on Sunday morning, Dr Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus taskforce coordinator, said on NBC’s Meet The Press that Covid-19 would affect the entire US.

 "We’ve been raising the alert in all metro areas and in all states,” she said. "No state, no metro area will be spared.

"The sooner we react, and the sooner the states and the metro areas react and ensure that they put in full mitigation, at the same time understanding exactly what their hospitals need, then we’ll be able to move forward together and protect the most Americans.”

Fauci and Birx’s comments stood in contrast with Trump’s expressions of optimism.

The president’s statements suggesting that parts of the US could reopen by Easter were opposed by public health officials, as well as state and local authorities, who have repeatedly emphasized that things are poised to get far worse, not better, in the near future.

Abu Khalid al-Hindi carried out the attack on Kabul Gurdwara: ISIS-K



The offshoot of the Islamic State terror group, ISIS Khurasan, claimed that the attack on Sikh temple in Kabul was carried out by Abu Khalild al-Hindi.

The Amaq News Agency, affiliated with the terror group released the photo of the suicide bomber who stormed the Sikh temple in Kabul city on Wednesday.

The terror group also issued a brief statement claiming that the Sikh minority group was the target of the attack.

The Ministry of Interior confirmed that the attack on Sikh temple in Kabul city left at least 25 people dead and 8 others wounded.

This is not the first time the terror group is targeting the minority groups in Afghanistan.

A suicide attack, claimed by ISIS Khurasan, killed at least 19 people including many members of the Sikh community in Jalalabad city of Nangarhar in mid-2018.

The attack also killed also killed Awtar Singh Khalsa, the only Sikh candidate who had planned to contest the parliamentary elections.

NYT hails Modi's lockdown, says Trump should do same
25.03.20 - PT Foreign Desk
NYT hails Modi's lockdown, says Trump should do same



AS NARENDRA MODI went ahead boldly where Imran Khan prevaricated and hesitated, India's move to clamp a nationwide lockdown to keep 1.3 billon people inside their homes today elicted praise from the New York Times which argued that President Donald Trump must do the same and the United States should immediately have a lockdown.

"Coronavirus Is Advancing. All Americans Need to Shelter in Place. The worst of the pandemic is yet to come. Listen to the medical experts. It’s time for a national lockdown," the New York Times Editorial Board wrote on Wednesday, March 25, 2020.

"On Tuesday, India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, ordered a "total ban” on leaving home for the population of 1.3 billion, for the next three weeks," the NYT said, adding, "President Trump needs to call for a two-week shelter-in-place order, now, as part of a coherent national strategy for the coronavirus to protect Americans and their livelihoods."

"A nationwide lockdown is the only tactic left to parry a viral adversary that is constantly on the move, and to buy the time for medical workers to prepare for what comes next," the NYT said.

The opinion of the NYT editorial board carries massive weight in decision making circles in the US and around the world. The editorial board is a "group of opinion journalists whose views are informed by expertise, research, debate and certain longstanding values. It is separate from the newsroom."

The NYT quoted Modi's words -- "If you can’t handle these 21 days, this country will go back 21 years.” -- and said the country "has passed the point where aggressive, targeted efforts at tracking and containment...have a realistic chance of success."

It said "the worst of the coronavirus pandemic is yet to come" and Washington's response has been "slow and spotty" that "allowed the virus to spread to every state."

It said the Trump administration's patchwork approach and the absence of a national plan have proven inadequate.

"The coronavirus can spread so quickly that to prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed, the restrictions need to be sweeping, they need to be uniform across jurisdictions and they need to be put in place now," it said.

The NYT, quoting researchers at the Imperial College London, expressed fears that "upward of two million lives could be lost" the the US alone, unless America somehow manages to "flatten the curve.”

It said Trump must go in for a lock down, and governors of various states should take a cue. This, the NYT said, will give more time "to develop palliative treatments, and more time for the federal government to order up the test kits and ventilators needed nationwide. There will be more time to gather data about which regions, and which people, are most at risk."

Incidentally, the US president does not have any powers to order a complete lock down, and the NYT Editorial Board said it was not making a case to give such powers to the White House.

"We are not suggesting that Mr. Trump has the authority to order a national lockdown, much less advocating that he attempt to enforce one. Instead, we are urging him to use the bully pulpit to put pressure on, and provide political cover for, governors to take the hard steps that are needed," it said.

The president "needs to be pursuing even more drastic measures," the NYT said, and recommonded the Modi formula: "He should announce that, within 24 hours, all nonessential businesses should be shut and residents directed to remain in their homes except for vital trips out, such as to obtain food or medical care."

"All this may seem like an overreaction to a health crisis that many Americans aren’t yet feeling. But though it has already wasted time and opportunities to contain the coronavirus, the United States still has a chance to apply hard lessons learned by China, Italy and other nations," the NYT said.

AURAT MARCH MOVEMENT
Aurat March vs Haya March
08.03.20 - Markandey Katju
Aurat March vs Haya March



"Imaan mujhe roke hai, jo khenche hai mujhe kufr
  Kaaba merey peeche hai, kaleesa merey age"
                                              - Mirza Ghalib

We in the Indian subcontinent are living in a transitional era, transition from feudal agricultural society to modern industrial society. Presently we are neither totally feudal nor totally modern, but somewhere in between.

A transitional era is a very painful period in society, full of turbulence and strife. If we read the history of Europe when it was passing through its transition from feudal to modern society, that is roughly from the 16th to the 18th centuries, we find that this period was full of turmoil, wars, revolutions, chaotic conditions, intellectual ferment, etc. It was only after going through this fire that modern society emerged in Europe.

The Indian subcontinent is presently going through this fire. We are going through a very painful period in our history, which I guess will last another 15-20 years (it won’t last 300 years, as it did in Europe, because the pace of history has speeded up in view of technical advances).

For what is a historic transition? It is a period when the old society is being totally uprooted and torn apart. Can this happen peacefully? One wishes it could, but historical experience shows otherwise. The vested interests in the old order always put up a fierce resistance to any fundamental change in the existing social and political order as they feel their interests may be endangered thereby.

One feature of a transitional order is a clash of values. Every social order has its moral and social code, which is destroyed in a great upheaval and replaced by another code. But in the intervening period, that is, in the transitional era, while old values are being challenged and eroded (e.g. the caste system, religious fundamentalism, arranged marriages, etc.) new values have not yet been put in their place. The whole of society becomes topsy turvey.
 
As Shakespeare said in Macbeth "Fair is foul and foul is fair". In other words, what was regarded good earlier (e.g, the caste system and arranged marriages) is being regarded outdated by the enlightened sections of society (who are against the caste system and in favour of love marriages).

The same is presently happening in the Indian subcontinent. Modern minded people are challenging casteism, communalism, superstitions, and feudal beliefs and practices, e.g. regarding women as inferior or marriages arranged by parents.

The Aurat March, and its opposition, the Haya March, must be seen in this historical context. While the former represents a progressive force in history which seeks to emancipate women and take society forward (see my article ‘Why I as an Indian support Pakistan’s Aurat March’ online), the latter represents a reactionary force, which wants to preserve the status quo in society, that is, the feudal values of patriarchy and subordination of women to men.

Mirza Ghalib’s sher, quoted at the beginning of this article, depicts this situation. In that sher, as in much of Urdu poetry, words are not to be interpreted literally but metaphorically or figuratively. The word ‘kaaba’ in it represents feudal society, while the word ‘kaleesa’ (literally church) represents modern society. Ghalib wants us to to reject feudalism and move forward to a modern society.

The transitional era in history is also depicted in a marvel of condensation in the following sher of Firaq Gorakhpuri (which I regard as one of the greatest in Urdu poetry):

"Har zarre par ek kaifiyat-e-neemshabi hai
  Ai saaqi-e-dauraan yeh gunaahon ki ghadi hai "

Here the expression ‘kaifiyat-e-neemshabi’ indicate that we are living in an era which is neither night nor day, but somewhere in between. In other words, the old social order is partially gone, but the new order has not yet been put in its place. 

Also, the expression ‘gunaahon ki ghadi’ means it is an age of sins. Sins against what? Sins against the old (feudal) code. For instance, the old code required one to marry within one’s own caste and religion, and to someone arranged by one’s parents, but the enlightened sections in society are challenging this. Now the youth want to decide for themselves who will be their life partner, instead of their parents deciding this. The old code required a woman to accept her status as inferior to that of men, and always obey their husbands, but now many women, such as those who participated in the Aurat March, are challenging this, and demand equality with men.

It would be presumptuous to think that the Aurat March by itself will cause a fundamental change in the lives of Pakistani women. That will only happen after a revolution, which is many years ahead, and will only be attained after a long arduous struggle against the reactionary elements, in which tremendous sacrifices have to be made.
 
But Aurat March marks an awakening of women, without which no revolution is possible (like the march to Versailles of the Paris women in October 1789, or the demonstrations of the women of St Petersburg on International Women’s Day in Russia which culminated in the February Revolution of 1917). Hence it is of historical significance.

No doubt some serious mistakes were made in it, like giving the slogan Mera Jism Meri Marzi’ which is liable to be misconstrued, and gave ammunition to the reactionary elements opposed to women’s emancipation like Maulana Fazlur Rehman to create public opinion against Aurat March (see my article ‘The slogan 'Mera Jism Meri Marzi' is doing more harm than good’).

But mistakes are made in every progressive movement. The important thing is to learn from one’s mistakes and correct them. I am sure my brave sisters of Pakistan will do it.

Long live the progressive and brave Aurat March! Down with the reactionary Haya March!

AURAT MARCH MOVEMENT
The slogan 'Mera Jism Meri Marzi' is doing more harm than good
07.03.20 - Markandey Katju
The slogan 'Mera Jism Meri Marzi' is doing more harm than good



I am fully in support of the Aurat March to be held in many cities in Pakistan on 8th March.

I am very modern minded and pro-women. Nevertheless, I must also say that the slogan ‘Mera jism meri marzi’ which some of the organisers/participants have advanced, is a wrong slogan, as it is vague and is liable to be misunderstood, however well intentioned. The slogan is doing more harm than good to the Aurat March movement

On the one hand the slogan can mean, and this meaning is quite acceptable in the India and Pakistan of today (even if it was not acceptable 50 or 75 years ago) that a woman should have the right to decide whom she will marry, and not that her parents will decide this for her (though even here many people will object to an inter caste or inter religious marriage, and some even commit ‘honor killing’ if that happens).

But the slogan can also mean that a girl should have the right to have a live in relationship with a man, to which the vast majority of people in our subcontinent (who are conservative) will socially disapprove, though it is not illegal, and is perfectly acceptable in America or Europe.

And does the slogan ‘Mera Jism Meri Marzi’ include the ‘glass of water theory’?

This theory was propounded by the Russian revolutionary Alexandra Kollontoi (in pic) in her story ‘Three Generations’. In that story there is a character Zhenya, an 18 old year Komsomol member (Komsomol was the Communist Youth organisation), who is a model for the totally emancipated ‘New Woman’ after the Bolshevik Revolution. Zhenya does not think that sex is in any way connected to love.
 
Zhenya lives with two men, gets pregnant by one of them, doesn’t know which, and doesn’t care. "Sex" she says "is like drinking a glass of water to quench one’s thirst".

Lenin strongly criticised the glass of water theory. He said that sex among humans is different from sex among animals, inasmuch it has a cultural aspect to it too, apart from the physical. Ordinarily no woman will give her body to a man unless she loves and respects him, and whom she knows will form a stable relationship with her and take care of her while she is having and raising her children.

I earnestly request the organisers/participants of the Aurat March to publicly admit that the slogan ‘Mera Jism Meri Marzi’ was a wrong slogan, and they are withdrawing it. By doing this they will get much greater support, including support of the conservative section of society, which has been antagonised by the slogan.

Punjab Today believes in serious, engaging, narrative journalism at a time when mainstream media houses seem to have given up on long-form writing and news television has blurred or altogether erased the lines between news and slapstick entertainment. We at Punjab Today believe that readers such as yourself appreciate cerebral journalism, and would like you to hold us against the best international industry standards. Brickbats are welcome even more than bouquets, though an occasional pat on the back is always encouraging. Good journalism can be a lifeline in these uncertain times worldwide. You can support us in myriad ways. To begin with, by spreading word about us and forwarding this reportage. Stay engaged.
