Covid: India tells social media firms to remove 'India variant' from content

Published 54 minutes ago

India's government has instructed social media companies to remove any content that refers to the "Indian variant" of Covid-19.

The IT ministry said the World Health Organization (WHO) listed the variant as B.1.617 and any reference to "Indian" was false.

Geographical terms have been used to describe a number of other variants, including the UK and Brazil.

India's government has faced criticism over its handling of Covid-19.

It also drew anger last month after it ordered Twitter to remove posts critical of some of its actions during the pandemic.

The country has been hit hard by the new variant since late March and is now second only to the US in terms of overall infections, at more than 26 million, according to Johns Hopkins University research.

Covid-related deaths are close to 300,000, behind only the US and Brazil, although some experts believe India's fatalities could be considerably higher.

'False statement'

The instruction to social media companies was carried in a government order from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology on Friday.

The note was not made public but was obtained by news agencies.

Platforms were asked to "remove all the content that names, refers to, or implies 'Indian variant' of coronavirus from your platform immediately", the Press Trust of India reported.

"It has come to our knowledge that a false statement is being circulated online which implies that an 'Indian variant' of coronavirus is spreading across the countries. This is completely FALSE," Agence France-Presse quoted the same letter as saying.

The note says that the World Health Organization (WHO) has "not associated the term 'Indian variant' with the B.1.617 variant of the coronavirus in any of its reports".

One social media executive told Reuters it would be extremely difficult to take down all references to "Indian variant".

B.1.617, a more transmissible variant, was first detected in India last year and has spread to dozens of countries. A number of nations have severely restricted arrivals from India.

India is a massive market for social media companies. Statistics from January show it is Twitter's third largest.

India's government this year introduced guidelines it said were intended to curb misuse of social media and the spread of misinformation.

Last month, it told Twitter and Facebook to remove some posts critical of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's handling of Covid-19.

On Friday, it criticised Twitter for labelling some tweets by Indian politicians "manipulated media", which the platform uses referring to possible fabrications and deceptions.

There has also been concern within the media that Mr Modi's government has been behind persistent attacks on the freedom of the press.

You have to ask the WHO aka John Hopkins School of Crime aka Bill Gates.

They are the experts, only they know winkwink

Asides, as the WHO and partners in crime have been so slow to point out, the variant is not India specific - it's a variant that's gained momentum across the world, India has been hit hardest - allegedly.

The annual catastrophic death rate in India will continue indefinitely, with or without any virus.

There are many parts of the world that are essentially uninhabitable, even though humans take root. As they say .... you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

Vaccines ‘highly effective’ against the Indian coronavirus variant

Britain back on course for a full reopening by June 21 after ‘astounding’ real-world data show protection offered by double dose of jabs

Britain’s vaccines are “highly effective” against the Indian coronavirus variant, government scientists hailed on Saturday night, putting the country back on course for a full reopening by June 21.

In a marked change in tone, Public Health England (PHE) scientists said the first real-world data showed double doses of Pfizer/BioNTech or AstraZeneca were nearly as effective against the emerging Indian strain as they were against the Kent variant.

The findings, from a study which included more than a thousand people who had contracted the Indian variant, were described as “groundbreaking” by a buoyant Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, and “astounding” by Nadhim Zahawi, the vaccines minister.

Dr Mary Ramsay, head of immunisation at PHE, urged people to get their “vital” second vaccine as soon as it was offered, saying it provided “maximum protection against all existing and emerging variants”.

Scientists found the Pfizer vaccine was 88 per cent effective against symptomatic disease from the Indian variant from two weeks after the second dose, compared to 93 per cent effective against the Kent strain.

The AstraZeneca vaccine was found to be 60 per cent effective against the Indian strain, compared to 66 per cent against the Kent variant, over the same period.

Scientists also insisted two jabs of either vaccine was expected to offer even greater protection against hospitalisation and death.

Number 10 was said on Saturday night to be “fairly confident” that June 21’s reopening was on track but cautioned that it was necessary to wait to check that hospitalisations had not gone up later this week before knowing if “we are out of the woods”.

On Saturday night, Sir Iain Duncan Smith, the former Tory leader, said the results meant “it is time the scientists were put back in their laboratories again and told ‘leave the Government to us’.”

It comes as:

Dominic Cummings, the Prime Minister’s former chief advisor, criticised the Government, scientists and PHE for failing to devise a pre-pandemic plan which would have prevented every lockdown;
The NHS declared the number of vaccinations delivered in England alone had now exceeded the 50 million “milestone”;
The Telegraph learnt millions of Britons had their mobile phones “unwittingly tracked” to establish whether people travelled further from home after their jabs
Mr Hancock welcomed the PHE’s latest research, saying it “proves our Covid-19 vaccination programme is protecting people”.

He added: “We can now be confident that over 20 million people – more than one in three – have significant protection against this new variant, and that number is growing by the hundreds of thousands every single day as more and more people get that vital second dose.”

Mr Zahawi said: “Almost every day we get more and more encouraging evidence about the difference our Covid-19 vaccines are making to people’s lives.

“Today’s data is astounding and a true reflection of just how important it is to get both jabs when offered.”

It is the first time the two vaccines have been studied to see how effective they are against both the Kent and Indian variants.

Although the AstraZeneca vaccine performed less impressively, scientists who conducted the study said data may have been skewed against it because the rollout of its second dose was weeks behind Pfizer’s. Earlier research also shows AstraZeneca takes longer to reach optimum effectiveness.

Dr Jamie Lopez Bernal, lead author of the PHE research team, said the “key message” was that two doses were “highly effective” against the Indian variant and would offer “higher protection” against severe illness and hospitalisation.

Professor Susan Hopkins, PHE’s Covid-19 strategic response director, said the “trend” was “quite clear” and was heading in the “right direction”.

Responding to the data, Sir Iain told The Telegraph: “It is time for us to stop fearing all day and every day. We have to get on with our lives.

“It is time the scientists were put back in their laboratories again and told ‘leave the Government to us’.

“It is time for the British people to get back to work and to feel safe. And they won’t feel safe if every day some scientist comes up on the television to say, ‘Oh My God, we don’t know enough about this, we should stay locked down’.”

Mark Harper MP, chairman of the lockdown-sceptic Covid Recovery Group of more than 60 Tory MPs, added: “This new data, which confirms our vaccines are very effective against the B.1.617.2 variant first identified in India, means that the Government’s roadmap should proceed as planned and all domestic restrictions should end in June.

“I hope the Prime Minister will now be able to say more about this by the end of this month as he had originally planned. Early confirmation that 21 June will see the end of social distancing would be especially welcome for the hospitality industry, which can’t survive unaided if social distancing were to continue.

“Effective vaccines break the link between cases and serious disease, hospitalisation and death. They enable us to get back to living like normal again.”

Government sources said on Saturday night that any decision on June 21 was dependent on hospitalisation data due this week, to see if new infections were causing serious illness.

However, the researchers were reassured because so far there had been no signs of “increased severity in hospitalisations”.

Shortly before the research was released, Mr Cummings launched a fresh series of tweets claiming the Government’s initial plan had been to try to secure herd immunity, before it was replaced by lockdowns as the death toll soared.

He also claimed the failure to introduce mass testing by September last year had cost thousands more lives, and was responsible for a second lockdown.

The PHE report also highlighted how the new Indian strain was more prevalent among people “with a history of foreign travel”.

It notes how the Indian variant was “rapidly circulating”, with “areas of concern” including Bolton, Blackburn, Bedford and Hounslow in north-west London.

Surge testing was being conducted in parts of west London on Saturday in response to the emergence of the Indian variant. People living and working in specific areas of Harrow, Ealing, Hillingdon and Brent will be advised to take a PCR test even if they do not have symptoms. Those who test positive for the variant are told to self-isolate and their contacts are traced.

The PHE study took place between April 5, when the Indian variant emerged, to May 16. Some 12,675 genome-sequenced cases were included in the analysis, but only 1,054 were of the Indian variant.

PHE found there were at least 2,889 cases of the Indian variant discovered this year. Of those, 104 cases resulted in a visit to a hospital emergency department, 31 required an overnight hospital admission and six resulted in death.

The most common strain in England remains the Kent variant, with 132,082 cases recorded so far. Some 1,569 people have died with that strain.

Throughout the UK, 71 per cent of adults have had their first vaccine, with 41 per cent – or 21 million people – protected with their second jab. The vaccine programme is estimated to have saved 13,000 lives and prevented 39,100 people from being hospitalised.

What the friggin' hell is 'the first real-world data confused ?

Second thoughts, don't bother to answer that - I might regret asking.

I'm still struggling to understand the night curfew mandate.

Between the hours of a notional 21:00H - 06:00H, most decent folk are either at home or tucked up in their bed. The most unlikely period of any day to spread a deadly disease. yet here we are confined to barracks just in case.

That mightn't be so bad if it wasn't for the very FACT (now even I'm starting to shout) that people flock together like birds of a feather during daylight hours.

Doesn't that defeat the object of the exercise?

In short, what is the point of imposing restrictions when folk are asleep, yet allowing them freedom of movement during the day when they are awake?

I'm seriously confused.

Mike Yeadon has been clear, viruses mutate by a mere fraction from their normal self and so any vaccine should cover a relevant variant.
Except this isn’t a vaccine, it’s a gene altering dose of monkey gunk

Thats another MAJOR admission to those that can read between the lines. 
"The FIRST" - by definition everything that came before does not count.
 "REAL" as opposed to ALL the fantasy previous info.

How much more does it take for people to see thru this bogus narrative?

Never worn their "deadly pandamic" muzzle - STILL NOT DEAD. not even a sniffle.

And the CDC have now decreed no masks in the US of A.
All soooooo transparent but a vast majority still beg for more and tell me I’m selfish for not having the jab.

I've just read, good loyal citizens must (that word again) remain diligent.  Although restrictions of movement have been partially lifted, the continued wearing of face masks is mandatory, for your protection - apparently.

So summer is nigh, travel restrictions are being relaxed (or not as the case may be), folk are desperate for that holiday break that's been out of bounds for well over a year.

How then does the mandatory mask (damask?) fit-in with the grand scheme of things.  Must get a bit awkward going for a dip in the big blue; bouncing about with the beach volley ball, surfing the dappling waves of June. climbing Ben Nevis, down the village green for a game of cricket.

No problem, you will be protected against COVID-19 and any errant variant (or not as the case may be) but you might drop dead through exhaustion, asphyxiation, starvation, dehydration, lightening, a troika, crabs, sun-stroke, shark attack, drowning, oxygen deprivation - and the tan's going to look a bit silly.

Happy holidays!
