So has India peaked already? Let’s not rush to conclude that. In any case, we are at 93k+ deaths now and this is the week when India’s reported Covid death toll crosses 1 lakh
. Just read my blog
for an estimate of future projection (when do we reach 2 lakh now? when does it all stop?)
Talking about Covid, does it impact men and women equally?
The short answer is no. My new blog this week - ‘Invisible women’ in the Covid times
- explores the area of gender / sex gap when it comes to healthcare / drug / vaccine research and development. I also introduce you to a super insightful and eye-opener book that exposes the gender / sex data bias in almost everything that is ‘man’-made in this world! If you are a feminist or ever proclaimed that you are one, you must be aware about the data reality of the world that we live in.
Another aspect of bad design of everyday things (systems / infrastructure included) pertains to lack of consideration for people with disability.
One of IIT Madras’ official handle published a video this week that I had created for them last year (or may be the year before that).
