Plasma The Golden Lifeline

Plasma The Golden Lifeline

   

      According to the ‘Wordweb Dictionary’, Plasma or Blood Plasma can be defined as The color-less watery fluid of the blood and lymph that contains no cells, but in which the blood cells (erythrocytes, leukocytes, and thrombocytes) are suspended.

     Plasma Therapy is an age-old process to cure critical diseases like the Spanish Flu in 1918. The therapy was widely used at that time during the pandemic and it has saved many lives. It was tested very often now and then to check the reliability of this treatment. For the treatment of COVID-19 infected patients, the doctors in India have insisted to test this therapy and they found the results were encouraging, where, antibodies from the cured person are winning against their enemy.

     The general phenomenon of this therapy is that the plasma the golden lifeline will be collected from the COVID warriors and loaded into the body of COVID ill patient. The plasma cells can release the powerful army of antibodies to fight against the COVID-19 virus and doctors are sure that antibodies can win the battle against the COVID-19 virus.

     The Indian doctors raised the necessity of Plasma Therapy and appealed to the government for testing this treatment in patients who have moderate to severe symptoms of COVID-19. Some hospitals have been volunteered for testing Plasma Therapy after getting permission from the Drug General Controller General of India and the results were encouraging. Since then, most of the state governments are now encouraging the COVID-19 warriors to donate Plasma the golden lifeline and asked them to help to cure the patients who have moderate to severe symptoms of COVID-19.

     Most of the private hospitals are also using Plasma Therapy for critically ill patients due to COVID-19. According to the sources, it has been observed that the recovery rate by using this therapy can be high and the doctors might be getting satisfactory results.


Hence it is requested to all the COVID-19 warriors who have defeated the virus to donate their plasma the golden lifeline and let the powerful army of antibodies win the war against the global pandemic COVID-19.

SOS Messages Online

Ministers visiting COVID Hospital in Warangal

Twitter which is very popular for microblogging, has become much more popular in recent days for COVID-19 emergency messages which can also be known as SOS Messages Online. Normally SOS which is meant for Save Our Soul or Save Our Ship is a call of distress in Morse code from the mariners when their life or the vessel was in danger. However, due to its importance, the SOS messages are being used in emergencies very often.

During the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic, before lockdown, it was very difficult to get access to government health and emergency services, as most of the people who are in needy, were not aware of the government norms or the procedures. Since that period, some of them have reached out to Twitter to message directly to their concerned, right from ministers to health, police, and administrative officials and send messages to them and the response from the ministers, health, police, and administrative was spontaneous.

The Telangana state ministers, health and police officials in particular, have responded to the SOS Messages Online, instantly and guided the respective officials to take the necessary action. The messages were not limited to health but were also requested for the interstate people movement due to emergencies, helping the stranded labor, getting the cab services for the needy people as well.

Twitter has helped in this pandemic situation, as most of the needy people have reached out to their respective officials for help through SOS Messages Online. In Twitter, usually, some of the politicians and officials might be having huge fan following and in general, the number of tweets for them will be more. Since there is no separate classification for emergency messages, there is a probability that some of these messages may miss out as well.

Hence it is requested to the Twitter that such kind of messages can be categorized under ‘ SOS Messages’ so that, the needy can be benefitted!

New Education Policy 2020

National Education Policy 2020

New Education Policy 2020 – The upgraded version of 10+2+3

     The day 29th July 2020 will be marked as a special day in the Indian Education System with the introduction of New Education Policy 2020. The policy has been approved by the Union Cabinet which is going to change the complete format of the present 10+2+3 education system. The draft was circulated to several scholars across India for review and the final amended version was submitted to the cabinet for approval. 

     The New Educational Policy will be based on the credit system at graduation level, where a student will have the option to transfer their credit score during their change, of course, college or university. The credits can also be used to finish their graduation after a certain time frame, even if they have stopped for a while due to unforeseen circumstances.

Foundation education will be introduced in government schools also. The pre-schooling structure which consists of Nursery, Lower Kinder Garden (LKG), and Upper Kinder Garden (UKG) was not available in the government-run schools, even though, most of the private schools are following this stream. With the implementation of New Education Policy 2020, foundation education will also be introduced in the government-run schools.

     The preferred language of learning will be of the local language as a preference with the option of choosing a national language and international language falling in second and third place. This will enable most of the students to learn the subjects in their mother tongue and can make them understand easily.

In the New Education Policy, the government may regulate the fees for the private institutions, thus private institutions are not permitted to collect more fees than the prescribed limit. This will help the students and their parents to get monetary benefits from private schools as well.

The migration to the New Education Policy may happen gradually by considering all the factors such as the impact on the academic year, infrastructure, feasibility and these factors may be observed during this transition period.
