‘Players should see commentators as garnish, we are unimportant’: Sanjay Manjrekar

India cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar on Sunday said that the cricketers on the field are sensitive and hence are unable to ignore the criticism made by the commentators.

So I don’t hold it against players when they react,” he said. Manjrekar had earlier run into trouble with India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja after referring to him as a ‘bits and pieces’ cricketer in a...

COVID-19: Our Obsession with Numbers Is Misleading Us – The Wire Science

At the time of writing, there had been around 4.8 million cases of the novel coronavirus around the world, and more than 320,000 deaths. In India, over 96,000 cases and 3,000 deaths have been reported thus far. The first case in the country was reported on January 29, in Kerala. But 15 weeks and over 2.2 million tests later, we are still not sure whether we’ve managed to flatten the curve, when the peak will come and, ultimately, when life will return to ‘normal’. We don’t know how to treat COVID-19, aside from treating its symptoms. Researchers and doctors have tried a cocktail of drugs and therapeutic regimes, including non-allopathic medications, but an effective, universally accepted therapy is yet to take shape. The virus is also mutating but we don’t know if a mutated strain will...

Coronavirus Update USA: Early blood clot tests may help save critically ill Covid-19 patients from stroke | World News – Times of India

HOUSTON: Critically ill COVID-19 patients face a high risk of developing kidney failure, stroke, and other complications associated with blood clot formation, according to a study which suggests that early tests may help save those severely affected by the disease.

In the study, the scientists, including those from the University of Colorado in the US, linked blood clotting measurements with actual patient outcomes. The researchers said they are also currently conducting a randomised clinical trial of a drug that breaks down blood clots in COVID-19-infected patients.
