The vaccination, which was opened to general public(other than frontline warriors) from March 1, was initially restricted to those aged above 60 years and those aged above 45 years with co-moribidities. From April 1, the vaccines were opened to all above the age of 45 years, irrespective of having co-morbidities.The petitioner highlights that several experts, including the Indian Medical Association, have demanded the ramping up of COVID vaccination. Reference is made to certain experts, who advised that India needs to administer at least 10 million doses daily to tackle the situation.The plea states :”…the marginalized sections of the population including daily wagers, labourers as well as persons falling below poverty line also form a large part of the population falling within the age group of 18 years and above. It may be noted that such persons simply cannot survive without a source of livelihood which is likely to be taken away if a lockdown is imposed in view of the rising cases of the COVID-19 pandemic. In such a scenario, it is most respectfully urged that this Hon’ble Court may issue appropriate directions to the Respondent so as to make the vaccines available to all sections of population who are above the age of 18 years”.The petitioner argues that the denial of vaccines to those in the age bracket of 18-45 years is arbitrary, discriminatory and unreasonable, violating Article 14 of the Constitution. It is further argued that such denial results in infringement of right to health and right to life, resulting in the violation of Article 21 of the Constitution. It is contended that the administration of the vaccine in itself takes between 6 to 8 weeks for both the doses and hence by the time the vaccine reaches the age group of 18 years and above the COVID-19 virus would have spread rapidly and may give rise to a situation.Making the COVID-19 vaccine available to persons belonging to the age group of 18 years and above will immensely help in containing the spread of the COVID-19 virus as the same is more likely to be spread by the said age group since such persons constitute a majority of the working population that moves around and comes in contact with other people, the plea states.The daily number of COVID-19 cases has been witnessing a steep increase over the past few days, and have reached two lakh now. Meanwhile, acute shortage of vaccines are being experienced in several states. In January, the Drug Controller General of India had approved the use of two vaccines, COVISHIELD and COVAXIN, manufactured by private companies Serum Institute of India and Bharat Biotech respectively. Faced with the rising COVID-19 cases and shortage of vaccines, the India Government recently decided to approve those foreign vaccines that have been granted emergency approvals by the US, EU, UK and Japanese regulators, including those listed by the WHO. Russian vaccine Sputnik V has also been given approval for use in India. However, the foreign vaccines are yet to be made available within India.Next Storylast_img read more

Meet the newest Dodgers: Josh Reddick

first_imgAcquired from A’s Background: Originally drafted by the Boston Red Sox, Reddick went to the A’s as part of the December 2011 trade that sent reliever Andrew Bailey to Boston. In his first full big-league season, Reddick hit 32 home runs and won a Gold Glove Award in 2012. He hasn’t quite replicated that season in the years, due in part to injuries. He did have a 20-homer season last year and continues to play above-average defense.Scouting report: Reddick is a significantly better version of the Andre Ethier they planned to have in their outfield this season. His average (.296) and OPS (.816) this season are career-highs but he has been limited to 68 games by a broken thumb. Like Ethier, though, Riddick struggles against left-handed pitching. This season, he is 11 for 64 (.172) against left-handers. All of his 20 extra-base hits this season have come against right-handed pitching.

Five years after suffering brain injury in car accident, Josh Speidel scores first career points

first_imgFrom ESPN:When his parents reached the hospital, doctors told them that Josh had nearly lost his life and that the prognosis for the future was not bright. Josh was in a coma for five weeks. Doctors told his parents to prepare for their son living in a vegetative state and needing 24-hour care for the rest of his life. He would never read above a fourth-grade level, they said.Speidel had already committed to Vermont, and he stuck with his commitment. On Tuesday, he was able to make his first Division I start. On his team’s first possession of the game, he caught a pass from teammate Everett Duncan and scored on a layup.A commitment bigger than basketball.Five years after a car accident put him in a coma, senior Josh Speidel scored the first points of his @UVMmbb career. pic.twitter.com/2BawNmClUf— NCAA March Madness (@marchmadness) March 4, 2020″I scored in a college basketball game,” Speidel said after the game. “You can’t take that away from me. I’m just so forever grateful.” “I did it, I’m a college basketball player.”Josh Speidel scored his first career points Tuesday on an emotional Senior Night for Vermont. Five years ago, Speidel was involved in a car crash that left him with a traumatic brain injury. ESPN’s Myron Medcalf spoke with Speidel’s parents after his game, and they provided the initial scary outlook for their son. He also nearly added on his first career rebound, but figured shooting 100 percent in his career would make for a better stat line.”I was thinking of maybe missing it, maybe to get an offensive rebound in there,” Speidel said (via ESPN). “But I figured I might as well go 1-for-1 and shoot 100 percent in my college career.”POSTGAME: @JSpeidel24 talks to @MichaelELehr about his special night & what seeing his name on the boxscore meant to him. #ThisIsVermont pic.twitter.com/2s2mOt8Sy8— UVM Athletics (@UVMathletics) March 4, 2020″I think back to five years ago, I didn’t even know I would make it home from the hospital,” Speidel said (via the Burlington Free Press). “And to say I got out in a D-I basketball game and I scored. … I can’t put into words what that meant to me.”last_img read more
