The state health minister made the point that while the Telangana Government is committed to making the vaccine available to everybody, it is the Union government which is full control of the matter.He was speaking at a virtual meeting on the COVID-19 vaccine arranged on January 31, arranged by Telangana State Federation of Chambers of Commerce & Trade (TSFCCT).Mentioning that he had volunteered to take the vaccine to give confidence and courage and to dispel fear about the vaccine, Eatala Rajendra expressed concern that 25 to 30 per cent health workers still have not taken the vaccine.In a statement released by the TSFCCT, the Health Minister, Government of Telangana said that it was true that some people are afraid to take vaccines due to fears spread by unreliable and unscientific news and rumours being circulated. The Telangana government is therefore reportedly contemplating to put a counselling mechanism in place to counsel and give confidence to those health workers who register for the COVID-19 vaccine but withdraw due to alleged fears.Calling on the medical fraternity to dispel those fears, he said it is they who can clear the air and suggested they use social media and mass media to spread awareness about the efficacy of the vaccine.In his talk the Telengana health minister referred to the use of penicillin, which has saved millions of lives over the past years since its first use in 1928, yet there are still checks if there are any reactions before it is given. He also reminded attendees that Penicillin G procaine, that is given by injection into a muscle, is approved to treat bacterial infections in different parts of the body and has been in use since 1928. But, even though there are reports about common allergic reactions to penicillin including rashes, hives, itchy eyes, and swollen lips, tongue, or face, it continues to be in use.Moving to mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines, the Telengana health minister mentioned that no one knows exactly how it behaves. While it behaves differently in different countries and environments, the Minister reminded that like all vaccines, COVID-19 mRNA vaccines have been rigorously tested for safety before being authorised for use.He made the point that mRNA technology is new, but not unknown. “As far as what I gathered from the experts is that mRNA from the vaccine never enters the nucleus of the cell and does not affect or interact with a person’s DNA. It may not be a 100 per cent efficacy vaccine. But it serves the purpose and gives bharosa (confidence).”Eatala Rajendra went on to say that if anybody has any doubts, they can consult their doctors, experts before taking the vaccine as they are the best people to give that confidence to the people.He assured listeners that the government and also as suggested by the organiser of the talk Prakash Ammanabolu, President, TSFCCT, Telangana Government, will play its role to create confidence in the people about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine and dispel their alleged fears.Opining that Telangana has fared well on all fronts be it recovery, curtailing deaths, we continue to strive hard, shared the Minister. “From the perception of compulsory death, if a person contracts COVID-19, we have reached the stage that nothing will happen. But, this journey has been hard and tough, and it was possible due to everyone’s effort,” said Eatala Rajender, as per the release.The talk was a continuation of similar engagements with experts and ministers, arranged by the TSFCCT, a professional body of 11 lakh traders in the state of Telangana, which was reporteldy hit very hard due to the pandemic.

Facebook Targets Chinese Market

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Tags:#Facebook#news#social networks#web Related Posts The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro…center_img frederic lardinois Social networking site Facebook has launched a Chinese-language version of its web site. Users logging into the site from the Chinese mainland are now being redirected to zh-cn.facebook.com, where users can choose between a version in simplified or traditional Chinese. Facebook has already launched a fair number of internationalized versions of its service, including a German, French and Spanish edition. Given that most of Facebook’s growth at this point is coming from outside of the United States, it only makes sense for Facebook to target the rapidly growing Chinese Internet market, which now boasts a larger online population than the US.There was a flurry of rumors in November 2007 that Facebook was looking into acquiring Zhanzuo.com, one of a number of mid-sized Chinese social networks with about seven million users. That acquisition, however, never materialized. Currently, the largest social network in China is 51.com with over 60 million users.Facebook’s largest competitor, MySpace already launched a Chinese-language version of its site in 2006. Besides the translation, it doesn’t look as if Facebook made any changes to its layout to cater to the Chinese speaking market. Facebook is entering an already crowded market in China and it remains to be seen if it can establish itself against the bevy of clones and original services such as Xiaonei, Zhanzuo, 51.com, and Xiaoyou that have already established themselves there by now. It will also be interesting to see if Facebook will try to pursue a different monetization strategy for the Chinese market similar to what Twitter is doing for its Japanese version.

It has been a cry for weeks that the water left behind by Hurricane Joaquin and compounded by a week of rainy weather was not receding, and the nation’s health minister went to assess the situation for himself. In a media release issued yesterday, the Premier said: “it was determined that the waters were not receding on its own and therefore posed possible threat to the public health environment of that community…” The Premier agreed that the standing water posed a myriad of challenges including inaccessibility, boom in the mosquito population and a threat to healthy water. In order to get that stagnant water pumped out in areas of Five Cays, TCIG had to adapt policy. Hon Dr. Rufus Ewing said: “it signaled to me that there was a need for immediate relief and for an executive decision to be made on an area of policy that currently restricts the personnel to focus on public access primarily.The Premier said the water was pumped out Tuesday.
