Video | Festive Laxity May Lead To Covid Spike, with 26 Lakh Cases A Month: Panel

A government-appointed committee has said that India has crossed the coronavirus peak and predicted that the epidemic could be brought under control by early next year if all measures are followed. But the onset of winter and upcoming festivals may increase susceptibility to the infection and laxity at this point can again lead to a spike. Relaxation in safety measures can lead to a significant rise. It can be as much as "upto 26 lakh cases a month," the committee said, adding that only 30 per cent of the population has developed immunity so far. Source link

On Day 200, chicken, rice served at Bengal’s longest-running community kitchen set up amid Covid-19

Running since April, West Bengal’s first community kitchen set up during the Covid-19 pandemic entered its 200th day on Sunday with not just young CPI(M) workers, who run it, but members of the civil society and film industry taking part in a small celebration. It is the state’s longest-running community kitchen. Some CPI(M) members opened the kitchen at Jadavpur in south Kolkata to offer free cooked lunch to poor people. It became so popular that around a thousand people visited it every day at the height of the lockdown. It got the name ‘Shramajibi Canteen’ (canteen of the working class). Impressed by the turnout, the party decided to work out a viable model. After the lockdown ended, the kitchen started offering cooked food at Rs 20 a packet which includes 2-3 items suc...

Lockdowns fuelled a splurge on Rolex watches and Dior handbags

Think lockdowns are bad for luxury? Think again.Sales at LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE’s fashion and leather goods division rose 12%, excluding currency movements, in its third quarter — not far off the levels it was achieving before the pandemic struck. The Bloomberg consensus of analysts’ expectations for the period was for a 0.9% decline.Instead, the bumper performance shows how demand for expensive handbags, cars and watches bounced back once affluent consumers could emerge from their homes and spend some of the money they saved during lockdown. It’s worth remembering as Europe once again tightens restrictions on movement. In China, whose consumers could account for 45% of global luxury sales this year according to Jefferies, shoppers treated themselves as stores...

Europe is losing fight to stay open on record virus surge

European leaders from London to Berlin face an alarming reality: lockdowns are creeping back on the agenda as the pandemic threatens the continent again.It’s a scenario many ruled out after the summer, when coronavirus cases were receding across Europe and borders were re-opening. A resurgence was expected, but the conviction was that a targeted approach would do.That early sense of victory has given way to disappointment, and set the stage for a deeper crisis with major cities under curfew and central governments openly clashing with local officials on the way forward.“The hope was that the second wave would be easier to control because we know how to identify and contain clusters and keep the economy running,” said Christian Odendahl, chief economist at the Centre for Eu...

UK unveils 3-level lockdown plan; Liverpool at highest risk

The British government carved England into three tiers of coronavirus risk on Monday in a bid to slow a resurgent outbreak, putting the northern city of Liverpool into the highest risk category and shutting its pubs, gyms and betting shops.Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the three-tier national system was designed to “simplify and standardize” a confusing patchwork of local rules, as the country faces a “crucial phase” in which hospitals are now filling up with more Covid-19 patients than in March, when he ordered a national lockdown.“These figures are flashing at us like dashboard warnings in a passenger jet, and we must act now,” he said.Shops, schools and universities would remain open in all areas. Johnson told lawmakers that the goal of the new system was to save li...

Meet the most-loved garment of Lockdown: the kaftan

Forget your pyjamas – the kaftan should be your go-to look for running errands, indulging in some me-time while you multitask with Zoom meetings and perhaps even to a lockdown wedding (if you are invited to one!). They are super comfortable. They look as good with strappy heels as they do with a pair of slippers. And most of all, the silhouette is so forgiving that you won’t end up feeling guilty of all the binge-eating you’ve been indulging in.However, ‘kaftan’ is actually a Persian word, and the style first originated in Ancient Mesopotamia. The Ottoman sultans from the 14th to the 18th centuries wore them and historically, the kaftan has been gender-neutral. In fact, one can find its variations in the Iranian plateau along with West and North Africa. Kaftan, The Kaftan ...
