The government of Gujarat has imposed a curfew on Ahmedabad from 9 a.m. on Friday to 6 a.m. on Monday. However, all essential services will be available to the population. Passengers visiting Ahmedabad Airport and Train Station will be exempt from the curfew. This means that these passengers will be able to get to the airport and train station showing their tickets.

In Gujarat, a night curfew has also been imposed on Rajkot, Vadodara and Surat from Saturday which will be applicable from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Over the past few days, the pharmaceutical companies – the American Pfizer and Moderna vaccine and Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine have been making headlines with their reports of successful trials of the COVID-19 vaccine. Pfizer claims 95% success, followed by Moderna at 94.5% and Sputnik V at 92%.

Last week, when Pfizer claimed to have passed up to 90% of its vaccine, its shares rose 19%. However, when Moderna scored 9.4% success, Pfizer shares fell 4.5%. This is because the vaccine manufactured by Pfizer should be stored at a temperature of minus 70 degrees Celsius, while the vaccine from Moderna can also be stored in normal refrigerators. For this reason, Moderna’s stock price rose 1.6%. But today, the company’s stock price started to rise again after Pfizer claimed to have passed up to 95% of the vaccine.

The coronavirus is a trap that has engulfed people and there seems to be no way out. It has led people to the untold misery of death, debt, ill health. Even in death, patients cannot find peace. Without a place in hospitals, and without cremation and crowded crematoriums, the suffering is incomprehensible

Those who go to private hospitals are in debt for life while their bills run into lakhs. Such is the tragedy of this virus.
