कोरोना के शुरूआती लक्षण दिखने पर मैंने टेस्ट करवाया और रिपोर्ट पॉजिटिव आई है। मेरी तबीयत ठीक है परन्तु डॉक्टर्स की सलाह पर अस्पताल में भर्ती हो रहा हूँ। मेरा अनुरोध है कि आप में से जो भी लोग गत कुछ दिनों में मेरे संपर्क में आयें हैं, कृपया स्वयं को आइसोलेट कर अपनी जाँच करवाएं।

Would you rather take a packed subway or tour bus to work?
Using a tourist conveyance as proper public transport is a novel post-pandemic adaptation. One U.K. bus company is currently testing a new offering that would ferry Londoners to and from work in some of the city’s 233 roof-less tourist buses.
The goal would be to redeploy the open-topped tourist buses as Covid-safe pop-up transportation for locals, extending the pandemic-era trend of outdoor living to public transport.
3. Something informative 🧠
4. Something symbolic 😷
Sports have returned amid a pandemic and things are already starting to look different.
