मुंबई | बॉलीवुड महानायक अमिताभ बच्चन को शनिवार शाम नानावटी अस्पताल में भर्ती कराया गया। अमिताभ ने स्वयं एक ट्वीट के जरिए इस बात की पुष्टि की है कि वह कोविड-19 पॉजिटिव पाए गए हैं।
अमिताभ ने ट्वीट किया, "टी 3590 - मैं कोविड पॉजिटव पाया गया हूं..अस्पताल ले जाया गया हूं..अस्पताल प्रशासन को सूचित कर रहा है.. परिवार और स्टाफ की जांच हो रही है..परिणाम की प्रतीक्षा है..वे सभी जो पिछले 10 दिनों से मेरे करीब रहे हैं, उन सभी से जांच कराने के लिए अनुरोध किया गया है।"
खबर लिखे जाने के समय नानावटी सूत्रों ने कहा कि 77 वर्षीय अभिनेता को वेंटिलेटर पर नहीं रखा गया है। आगे के विवरण की प्रतीक्षा है।
बाद में अभिषेक बच्चन का भी कोरोना टेस्ट पॉजिटिव पाया गया और उन्हें भी नानावटी अस्पताल में भर्ती करवा दिया गया है. अभिषेक ने भी ट्वीट कर इसकी सूचना स्वयं दी. राहत की बात रही कि बच्चन परिवार के दूसरे सदस्य जया बच्चन और ऐश्वर्या बच्चन का कोरोना टेस्ट नेगेटिव आया है.
उधर बॉलीवुड की दिग्गज अभिनेत्री रेखा का बांद्रा के बैंडस्टैंड स्थित बंगला बृहन्मुंबई नगर निगम ने सील कर दिया है, क्योंकि वहां तैनात एक सिक्युरिटी गार्ड कोरोना पॉजिटिव पाया गया है।
सी स्प्रिंग्स नामक इस बंगले को कंटेनमेंट जोन भी घोषित कर दिया गया है और बीएमसी ने मुहल्ले को पूरी तरह सैनिटाइज किया है।
इस बीच, फिल्म उद्योग के सहकर्मियों की तरफ से अमिताभ के शीघ्र स्वस्थ होने की कामनाएं आनी शुरू हो गई हैं।
अमिताभ के साथ पिछले साल 'बदला' में काम कर चुकीं तापसी पन्नू ने सोशल मीडिया पर लिखा, "और आप जल्द ही स्वस्थ और खुश होंगे। चैम्प।"
मलयालम सुपरस्टार ममूटी ने ट्वीट किया, "गेट वेल सून सर।"
तेलुगू सुपरस्टार महेश बाबू ने लिखा, "गेट वेल सून सर। आपके जल्द स्वस्थ होने की कामना करता हूं।"
रणवीर शौरी ने ट्वीट किया, "ओह नहीं। ख्याल रखे सर। गेट वेल सून। आपको ढेर सारा प्यार और शुभकामनाएं।"
बोनी कपूर ने ट्वीट किया, "गेट वेल सून अमित जी।"
नेहा धूपिया ने लिखा, "आपको ढेर सारा प्यार और शुभकामनाएं..कृपया अपना ख्याल रखें..आप बहुत जल्द ठीक हो जाएंगे।"
सोनू सूद ने लिखा, "गेट वेल सून सर।"
बच्चन हाल ही में शूजित सरकार की 'गुलाबो सिताबो' में दिखाई दिए थे, जिसमें आयुष्मान खुराना भी हैं। यह फिल्म अमेजन प्राइम वीडियो पर डिजिटल प्रारूप में रिलीज हुई थी।
उनकी आगामी फिल्मों में 'चेहरे', 'झुंड' और 'ब्रह्मास्त्र' हैं। वह लोकप्रिय क्वि ज शो 'कौन बनेगा करोड़पति' का 12वां सीजन भी होस्ट करने वाले हैं।
MyGov developed the Aarogya Setu app and launched it in April.
"There is no other app that anyone in India is using today that has greater privacy features than what Aarogya Setu has", he told IANS in a video interview Tuesday.
"Critics will be there, we welcome them. Sometimes what they say makes us strive harder and ensure(s) that what we do is in the best interests of the people of India."
Baptiste Robert, a French security researcher, in a May 6 Medium blog post under his online pseudonym Elliot Alderman, said he was able to spoof his location and zoom in on the location of infected users.
MyGov responded pointwise to Robert's security concerns and cranked up its communication around privacy FAQs and the small details. On May 11, for instance, when Aarogya Setu had 98.5 million downloads, it pushed out information that data of "only 0.013 per cent" of all users were uploaded to the server to identify Bluetooth contacts and alert them.
Singh's remarks to IANS come on a day when the app at the heart of India's contact tracing effort has been downloaded 107 million times in a country with a smartphone user base of about 500 million.
Singh said Bluetooth contacts of confirmed COVID19 cases on the Aarogya Setu app have begun to turn up a 23 per cent positivity rate for the coronavirus and are helping identify hotspots "seven days faster" than what's possible without the app.
"Among those who have been identified as bluetooth contacts of COVID19 positive, when we do the testing, the positive rate we are getting is almost 23 per cent."
Aarogya Setu's GPS and Bluetooth mix has sparked intense scrutiny among critics about potential data breaches and government leverage.
Singh explained that encryption and anonymity are hardwired into Aarogya Setu. Personal details are taken "only once", at registration, and then anonymised via a device ID, he said.
Singh said Aarogya Setu's privacy standards conform to the draft privacy bill pending in Parliament and the app's focus is "on saving lives".
"This device ID is the one with which all other interactions take place subsequently."
Singh said only information essential for "medical interventions" like making quarantine decisions or sanitising of public areas is shared. "That too, only with government health representatives", Singh stressed.
At least 25 countries around the world, including India, have deployed contact tracing apps to help contain infections by identifying and notifying all those who come into contact with a carrier.
India's Aarogya Setu uses a mix of location and Bluetooth technology. Bluetooth, which is easier to anonymise, is considered several notches above location data in the context of privacy.
On a sliding scale of 30 days to 60 days, depending on the user's COVID19 risk profile, data is destroyed, according to Singh. Data destruction on the Aarogya Setu app happens 30 days from creation of data for zero risk users and 60 days post recovery for COIVID19 patients.
Aarogya Setu's data analysts at Indian Institute of Technology, Madras and Indian Institute of Science Bengaluru calculate the cumulative hours of contact with an infected person "at the sub pin code level", Singh told IANS.
This is "huge potential as an early warning systema, Singh said, speaking to Setu's role as a public good in a health emergency.
MyGov's former chief Arvind Gupta, in a recent conversation with IANS, called for a change in how the public thinks about privacy in the context of digital public goods in the post-COVID19 era.
India's COVID19 caseload has surged past the 100,000 mark, more than 3,300 have died from the virus, according to official data.
