GILEAD Sciences’ anti-viral drug Remdesivir has shown efficacy in treating Covid-19 patients.

PM’s Announcements: Grossly Inadequate

CPI(M) Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on July 1, 2020
THE announcements made by the prime minister yesterday are totally inadequate to meet the crisis of survival and livelihood being faced by crores of our people.  The provision of five kg of foodgrains and one kg of pulses is grossly inadequate to meet the survival needs of the people who have been deprived of their livelihood or food for over three months. 10 kg of foodgrain per individual per month for a period of six months is the minimum that needs to be ensured.

PM Modi while addressing the meeting said unambiguously that there was “no intrusion, no occupation and no capture of our posts”. Then, why the conflict? Why the martyrdom of our brave soldiers?
