This is the new discussion going on with people in dilema on which one to choose between these two SUVs in the market. So, in this post, I’ll tell you which SUV is better for whom so that picking one among will be easier than before. Let us start with the new MG Hector Plus. This is not an all-new vehicle but a facelift for the current Hector though its gonna sell alongside as ‘Plus version’ in separate. Instead of running through the whole details of the vehicle, let me try to make things as simpler as possible but incase if it goes long, don’t worry, it’ll surely be informative at its best. Firstoff, the changes that were done in the Hector plus are : 1. Increased dimensions by 65mm though the wheelbase is still intact. 2. Front and rear elements were redesigned and the front part of the vehicle now looks more imposing and more luxurious than before which is a good thing to be mentioned. The DRL design now looks more distinct and same is the case with the headlamps design with the arrow style and integrating the headlamps within themselves looks futuristic. Coming to the rear, its not a complete overhaul but the changes aren’t very appealing either unlike in the case of Harrier but simple enough with the new design that looks good enough for this SUV. 3. Interiors also have changed a bit with the plush leather captain seats which look and feel luxurious and also there’s some leather work done on the dash as well which gives a premium appeal for the customers. 4. Apart from these, there are no changes that were made mechanically like in the engine tuning or other but for the infotainment, MG said that they’ve added a chatbot that chats with you while driving alone or when you want to have some fun time with the assistant. 5. Powered tailgate is another feature which they’ve been boasting of and it works with a leg swipe which is nice and apart from all these, MG says that they’ve improved the ride quality as well but in my opinion, it should be tested by the customers because previously there was a complaint on its ride quality in highways being bouncy and all but I’d like to reserve this for the test ride as it need to be tested in person than posting about it through some medium like in Quora. So, these are the changes that were done to the Hector plus compared to the Hector and price also, its pretty competitive and starting at 13 Lakhs and ending at nearly 18.5 is something that one needs to give it a thought before its purchase as there are other bigger and more competent rivals like Harrier, Seltos and Creta which are its hardcore competitors that offer something huge than Hector Plus has to offer. Now, let us discuss some facts about the MG Hector plus because there are some changes that were expected from it but MG somehow neglected them even in their new offering as well. 1. Wheels are small for its size and everyone asked for either a new alloy design that appeals massive or atleast bigger sized tyres which didn’t happen. 2. The Infotainment wasn’t that responsive and it isn’t new either in this Hector plus and the 360° camera quality was a bit laggy too. Manual ac controls would’ve been nice instead of the touch ones as it might lead to any crash if the driver is looking at the infotainment for all the controls. 3. Ride quality and the weight of the SUV is actually stopping the customers to consider it as their primary option but that also didn’t seem to have improved in this one considering the changes and improvement we’ve seen with Harrier 2020. 4. Automatic transmission in diesel is still not offered which was kind of a bummer for the customers as every rival of Hector plus is offering one. 5. 3rd row is strictly for kinds who are under 5 or 10 years as adults can’t find either the space or comfort no matter what tricks they try on it. Seats are set to their lowest and the leg room, underthigh support is lacking as well. 6. Mileage is the big draw as though other 2.0lit engine powered SUVs produce better mileage than Hector Plus, due to its weight, it has taken a toll in the mileage. So, to conclude about the MG Hector plus, its for the customers who love tech intesively and also the ones who love to have a vehicle that looks big and imposing. But if you want something better than MG Hector plus, then you need to wait till the launch of the Tata Gravitas if you desire for a better 3-row SUV compared to the Hector plus interms of comfort and accommodating more people inside. Now, let us jump into Tata Harrier. Its a stellar looking SUV in all ways possible be it design, powertrain or even the interiors as they look less nonsense with everything laid out well and in reach. The Grudges everyone was having with the Harrier previously is that there was no sunroof, ORVMs look fatty obstructing the vision at corners, USB ports need a hunter 😆😆 and also the alloys looked pretty basic and no powered driver seat and much more like this. But, with the facelifted model, Tata has managed to compensate most of the requirements that came with the feedback and now, its not all the biggest improvement and all in every department but not all bad either and a very attractive design to look at. In my opinion, Harrier is a pretty good package that we get from Tata Motors and features like Powered driver seat, panoramic sunroof, sharkfin antenna, new additions for the touch screen and also the automatic and all add to its favour and most notably, the colours, new alloys, dark edition, revised ports position and all are great and at safety front, the disc wiping, ESC, Hill Hold, Driving modes, ESP and all add to the betterment while there are still some things missing in it. Among them, the important and immediate requirements would be like : 1. Powered tailgate 2. Powered front passenger seat 3. Electronic parking brake or even a normal handbrake would’ve done the job fine, instead of the aircraft style one which actually takes more energy out of the one who drives it. 4. Reclining function for the rear seats would’ve added that extra bit of luxury inside the cabin but the seat angle is pretty decent as well. 5. Features like TPMS, rear disc brakes(This is a particular mention as Harrier is a heavy SUV and to stop it, only front discs would be less in my opinion) and connected cartech would’ve improved the overall ability of the Harrier and also paddle shifters could’ve improved the experience of the customers to a whole new level. Verdict : Its a tough choice to pick one among these two, but driving wise and comfort wise, you can fit 5-midsize adults comfortably in Harrier which was not the case with Hector Plus as accommodating 4 is the very viable option in it or if you’ve small children, then it’d certainly fit them well but for mid-size or full sized adults, its gotta be the Harrier for sure. Though the Hector Plus is a very good offering interms of tech, space, seats and all, its the Harrier that cocoons you well with its better ride quality and comfort of an automatic and the mileage figures are pretty good considering its size and proportions as well. So, its the Harrier I vote for (I’m not at all partial to any of those companies but trying to pour out my opinion in practical as possible and this has nothing to do with either Ban China products or partiality thing and all). Thank you for reading this post and if you find it informative, do encourage me through your upvotes and also don’t forget to share this because there might be people who require this. Edit : Hello guys! At first it felt a little underwhelming when the response wasn’t that good as it took much effort and time out of me to write this big answer. But, once it was identified, it really feels great that you guys liked my explanation about the both SUVs. Thank you once again and see yeah!
As s much research is going on, and we all the time get new information, I from time to time am writing new information in this answer. I am writing this as a Mini-Blog about covid-19. Edit 28. October 2020: The studies of Remdesivir is now finished, and it is proven Remdesivir shortens the time to improve if having a severe Covid-19 infection. It is not proven to enhance the survival rate. Edit 5. June 2020: MARVELLOUS NEWS! Learn the name REMDESIVIR, as it probably will be the new drug with effect on covid-19! This is originally a drug used against cancer. Now it is found to have anti-viral properties as well, along a different route than Remdesivir. Norway and Great Britain are about to start a joint study on patients hospitalized with covid-19. 60 patients will get the drug and 60 controls will not get the drug. It is a British study called ACCORD (Acclerating covid-19 Research & Development Platform). The Norwegian firm BerGenBio is producing Bemcentinib, which is chosen as the first drug to be tested against covid-19. The drug might be able to hinder the bodys immune system to be weakened by the virus. If it actually works, we will have two medicines with effect against covid-19. Edit 25. May 2020: About children and covid-19. There is still much we do not know, due to the need of far more tests in the population as a whole to really know whom has been infected, and knowing more of the routes of infection. What we do know, is fewer children are being infected compared with adults. Also in infection tracking, there is by far less people being infected by children compared with youths and adults, also when adjusted for fewer children being infected. In general children are being less ill when infected by covid-19. Of children being ill from covid-19, infants younger than 1 year of age had a higher rate of serious infections compared to children over 1 year of age. New York warns of children's illness linked to Covid-19 after three deaths There has now has been rapported 73 cases in New York of children getting a very serious condition with toxic shock similar to what is called Kawasaki Syndrome . Still, it is not certain the condition was caused by the infection, as the Kawasaki Syndrome can happen to children without any infection, with an incidence rate ranging from about 9 to 20 per 100,000 children under 5 years of age. It may be these children would have gotten the Kawasaki Syndrome also if they had not been infected by covid-19. Still, the finding of this syndrome in ill children means we have to be alerted to the possibility of developing this possible complication in children. Edit 24. May 2020: There now is one more promising drug being tried out against covid-19. The place on our cells where the covid-19 is able to attach itself and enter the infected cell, is a cell surface protein called Angiotensin Converting Enzyme 2, ACE2 in short. We have now been able to produce a solution of ACE2, this solution is called APNo1. It is produced by the Austrian company called Apeiron Biologics. It has already been tested in small pilot tests, and the testing till now has made it clear it is not harming the patient in any way. Now there is planned a larger scale scientific trial with 200 patients getting the drug and 200 controls. The clinical trials will be done at 10 sites together in Austria, Denmark and Germany. The possible working mechanism is if flooding our blood stream with artificial ACE2, the covid-19 viruses may connect to these free ACE2 molecules. If the viruses actually connects to these artificial ACE2 in the blood, they can not at the same time attach themselves to the ACE2 molecules on the host cells nor enter the host cells. If this drug actually works the way we hope, the drug will stop the viruses from infecting the body cells. In this way the APNo1 may shorten the time the person is ill from the infection, and may giving milder infections with less deaths. This is a very promising drug, but of course we have to await the results from the study. Edit 23.May 2020: The drug Remdesivir has a proven effect in hindering the covid-19 virus from multiplying. See details under the headline The work on antiviral Treatment. Also edit 23. May 2020: New information of how the covid-19 kills has been found. Among them there is multiple thrombosis in many of the smaller arteries to different organs, leading to the destruction of those organs in persons who have died from the disease. Due to this findings, there now is started clinical studies with more heavy anticoagulant treatment than before, to see if this can prevent the multi thrombosis, and thus lower the death rate. The results from these studies are not ready yet. By the 13. April 2020 Norwegian doctors came across a woman ill with covid-19 who tested negative on the ordinary covid-19 tests twice. The test swabs were taken from the pharynx. It turned out there was nothing wrong with the tests themselves. But further out when being ill and the infection having reached the lungs, there were no longer viruses in the pharynx. The viruses were only in the lungs. This lack of viruses higher up in the airways when the illness has progressed, makes it more difficult to get correct diagnosis. Testing for viruses from the lungs can only be done in hospital. Start of original answer: The picture shows doctor Li Wenliang. He is known to the world for privately warning others about the disease. He got ill himself and is now dead. If you were sure not to be one of those who are not being very ill by the virus, it could be a good idea just to expose yourself to the covid-19 virus and get immunity. But there are several reasons for this not being a good idea after all. Now it is a big risk to expose oneself to the virus. You can be one of the more than 80 % who just get a weak disease. But you do not know if you one of those who are being very ill. We also wait for antiviral treatment which can relieve the illness. Until this is developed, it is better to try to avoid being infected. The more infected people there are at the same time, the more difficult it will be to protect the most vulnerable part of the population from being infected. This includes people with heart conditions, lung conditions and cancer. It is unethical to not try protecting our vulnerable fellow citizens from being infected. 23. April 2020: Covid-19 gives rise to far more deaths than the common flu. This is most easily seen in graphs. London, showing all deaths every week for the last nine years: From New York State, weekly deaths from the flu the last five years compared with covid-19 deaths in 2020: April 2020: Why humanity will be less vulnerable to covid-19 after some years due to immunity against some of the antigens on the virus, even if some of the antigens are mutated: Humanity will get SOME immunity against this virus, even if the virus mutates. Viruses have many antigens on their surfaces. Usually we fight the viruses off by attacking the main antigens. This is what happens with the seasonal flu. The virus mutates those main antigens, making us vulnerable to it again, and making it necessary to make a new seasonal flu vaccine. But there is one BIG DIFFERENCE. We do not only create antibodies against the main antigens on the viruses. We make some antibodies against most of the antigens on the surface of the viruses. We still have some immunity against some of the less important antigens on the surface of the virus. The virus does not mutate them all at once. The reason for us not having ANY immunity against covid-19, is because this virus is totally new to humanity. Nobody have any immunity to any of its antigens. The same was the case with the bird flu and the swine flu: We were so vulnerable to the viruses due to the viruses being completely new to humanity, and nobody having immunity against any of the antigens on the surfaces of these viruses. The covid-19 virus probably will mutate its major antigens. But the virus will not mutate all of its surface antigens at once. This will in time render humanity less vulnerable to the virus compared to what the case is now. 30. Mars 2020, Cultural differences in distancing: The Scandinavians have personal distancing as a way of life. The following gif picture shows Swedes at a bus stop - BEFORE the covid-19: About health resources: The Scandinavian Health authorities publishes the number of intensive care hospital beds with possibilities to use respirators. This number is enough under usual circumstances. But if too many people are being severely ill at the same time, the number of intensive care beds with respirators will be too few. Fun fact: In Norway the opera had to close due to the covid-19. The opera has seamstresses who usually are creating costumes for the opera. Now they have had to stay at home. But they were not idle! They started sewing re-usable protection coats for health personell as there was some shortage of protection clothing, especially in the care facilities for the elderly. The picture shows one of the opera seamstresses at her home, wearing one of the protection coat she has sewn to help in the covid-19 crisis. This is what she usually is creating: In Norway many people does work to help in the covid-19 crisis. Medical students gets extra education and then start working in medical receptions, taking covid-19 tests, and even working as ambulance drivers. The picture shows medical students in Bergen, Norway who are taking covid-19 tests. You see it is in a tent. This tent is placed besides the local emergency reception. In Norway all the health system is now organized to NOT mix covid-19 patients with other patients. Those suspected of being infected with covid-19 are not allowed entrance to the actual emergency reception or a doctors waiting room. This to protect other patients from infection: Sweden: HRH Princess Sofia of Sweden, Duchess of Värmland, married to Prince Carl Philip who is the forth in line to the crown in Sweden has taken a course in how to work in a hospital, and is actually working as and aid to the nurses and other staff to help in the crisis. Cudos to this fine Princess! She is doing real work, not just a publicity stunt! I can not help myself, but posting another picture of this fine Princess. This is from a Nobel Prize reception: The number being severely ill depends on the number of people being infected. Due to this, it will help the survival rate if the infection rate is slowed down, making the amount of severely ill at no time exceed the capacity of respirators and intensive care beds. This of course also is true in countries outside of Scandinavia, and is a good reason for slowing down the spread as much as we can. Italy has been hit hard. Alessandro Paronuzzi tells in a comment that Italy still have not been in need of rejecting patients. Patients are sent to other parts of the country which are less affected by the virus. The Italian doctors themselves have compared it with war-time circumstances. In war-times and in great crisis, the doctors may have to make decisions of which patients are to be treated. Then it is necessary to leave out those with small possibilities of surviving. Crisis selection of patients is one of the subjects we have in medical school. 27. Mars 2020 How different countries handle the epidemics: Both Sweden and UK started with an idea of letting the young and healthy not protect themselves against the virus, thinking this would lead to herd immunity by the fall 2020. The goal was 40 - 60 % of the population being immune. The old, sick and in other ways vulnerable was to be sheltered - this was not meant to let this part of the population ill and die. Both Sweden and UK have now changed their way of dealing with the virus, trying to slow down the rate of infections. The reason for this was they experienced the number of severely ill people in need of intensive care with respirators, and even dying, to be higher than they had expected. They saw that if they did not slow down the general rate of infections, they would get more severely ill patients than the health system could handle. This again would lead to more deaths compared with a policy of slowing down the infection rate in general. I have to add the Swedish state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell still does not agree they should try more to prevent infection among young, healthy people. But the actual politics in the country has changed in a more preventive direction, even though it is not as strict as in Denmark and Norway. Deaths per 100 000 inhabitants in Scandinavia per 29. April 2020: Sverige = Sweden, Norge = Norway, Danmark = Denmark, Island = Island, Finland = Finland As we can see, Sweden has far more deaths compared with the other Nordic countries. Still this is no proof Sweden is doing the wrong thing. There is for sure coming more waves with the virus, and then Sweden might have a population with higher resistance compared with the other Nordic countries. First after some years will we really know what is the better strategy. All the Nordic countries are cooperating with each other with research. Due to being small countries with a highly educated population and very well developed health system, the different ways of meeting the pandemic will be measured. This can later on give valuable information of what is the best way to meet pandemics. One thing do we know: Covid-19 is not going to be the last virus pandemic in the world! By 25. May 2020: The country in the world doing the worst possible thing in the covid-19 crisis is by now USA. Not having a central government supporting the states, supporting social distancing - and having created the situation of the States having to bid against each others to buy medical equipment such as ventilator - this artificially making the states getting less equipment for the money is incredible. This combined with holding back medical help to states if the president perceives himself as personally insulted by the state governor is also incredible. Suddenly one of the leading countries in the world is acting like a low level partial dictatorship without educated leadership. This has lead to US being the country in the world with most covid-19 deaths - over 90 000 deaths, even with a possible under-rating of covid-19 related deaths. Again, we have to await how the pandemic evolves. Can also US get a higher amount of people with resistance against the covid-19? The one thing which makes US for sure having more deaths than necessary, is the lack of ventilators and lack of protective clothing and masks for the health personell. 27. Mars 2020 The special experiences in the city Vo in Italy: In the city Vo in Italy, they tested ALL inhabitants of the city. Then ALL the citizens was in home quarantine for two weeks. After that, ALL the citizens were tested once more. An unexpected finding was 70 % of all testing positive for the covid-19 virus, had no symptoms at all! We already knew some did not have any symptoms, but in no way the number being this high. The first reporters of the covid-19 virus: As Haodong Du states in a comment, it was other doctors, Dingyu Zhang and Jixian Zhang who kept reporting about the virus to the government through official channel to raise more attention, even under some pressure. About the covid-19 virus: New information is coming nearly by the hour now! It was found the covid-19 virus possibly had diverted into two different strains, the S- strain giving more serious disease and spreading more quickly, and the L-strain giving less serious disease and spreading less quickly. It was estimated 30 % of the cases being by the L-strain and 70 % of the cases being by the S-strain. What is a fact, is that the 21. January 2020 a man in USA tested positive for the covid-19 virus, and they found both the S-strain and the L-strain at the same time in this patient. Later research question both the difference in severity and the difference in spread ability of these two strains, even questioning it being correct to call it two different strains. This is in the study: Xiaolu Tang, m. fl: «On the origin and continuing evolution of SARS-CoV-2», National Science Review, 3. mars 2020: Response to “On the origin and continuing evolution of SARS-CoV-2” Edit 27. Mars 2020 about the covid-19 virus: The last findings are from Iceland, they studied the genetic details in the covid-19 viruses they had collected. There they found 40 different strains of covid-19 virus. They do not know if there is any difference in virulence or infectivity of those strains. They may have the same virulens and infectivity. Specialists in virology states that it is more probable for a virus to mutate and spread as a less virulent type, not a more virulent type. This is due to the “survival of the fittest”, which for viruses means the ability to multiply and spread. The more quickly the virus kills its host, the less time it will have to spread. Of course it is possible for the virus also to mutate into a more virulent strain. We have to expect still more news to come, and still quite quickly. Still news are coming nearly by the hour. We need to be open minded and re-evaluate our opinions as new information is emerging! Original answer by 27. Mars 2020 about the development of a vaccine against the covid-19: It is NOT more difficult to develop a vaccine against covid-19 compared with developing vaccines in general. There are no previous vaccines against this virus, making it necessary to create a new vaccine. Creating a new vaccine usually takes three years. The reason for this is the need for long term tests on human subjects to ensure both the vaccine protecting people from being infected by the disease, and at the same time the vaccine not giving any severe side effects. The vaccine is first tested on cell cultures, then tested on more organized cell cultures, then on animals, then on a smaller group of human test objects. First when all this have went well, the main testing on humans starts. We have to see that antibodies are produced. Then we have to see these antibodies actually help in not getting the disease. And the long term testing is needed to se there being neither short term harms or long term harms from the vaccine. It is quite easy to make a vaccine prototype, many firms already have done so. But a vaccine prototype is not a vaccine ready to be used on the population. The two firms by now leading in the race, is the Boston based firm Moderna and the German firm CureVac. Sara Lourenço has given an update about Trump and the company CureVac: There were rumors Trump has tried to bribe CureVac into only giving their vaccine to US when it is ready, but CureVac’s CEO later denied such rumors ('There was and there is no takeover offer': German coronavirus vaccine company CureVac is shooting down viral reports that Trump tried to buy it ). Bill Gates has given a substansial contribution to CureVac, and made sure the vaccine will be distributed to those who need it the most. Moderna has as its vaccine prototype a strand of messenger RNA which codes for the main gluco-protein spike on the surface of the virus. The reason for choosing mRNA is this mimicking a real infection, and thus maybe giving a stronger immune response. Moderna has the 16. Mars 2020 started the first tests on volunteer test subjects. This was done in Seattle, USA. The trial includes 45 healthy adults ages 18-55 and last for approximately 6 weeks as volunteers will receive two shots about a month apart. This picture shows the very first vaccine set on a voluntary human test object. We expect the results of this first study to be ready in July or August 2020. If all goes well, we expect a working vaccine to be ready in 12 - 18 months from now. 14. April 2020 about the development of a vaccine against covid-19: By 10. April 2020 Nature published 78 vaccine projects was ongoing. Even 37 more projects are in an early stages of development. The University in Oxford, three Chinese research groups and two American companies including the firm Moderna have started the first trials on human volunteers. Edit 22. April 2020: The Oxford University has worked with a vaccine prototype being a synthetic version of the virus. In April 2020 dr. Sarah Gilbert, professor in vaccines at Oxford, states to The Times she believes there is 80 % probability for the vaccine to work. 500 persons age 18 – 55 years of age have volunteered to participate in the test for the vaccine, this testing will start 23. April 2020. The vaccine may be ready already the autumn 2020 to be ready for production. The time for production comes after the testing period is finished. If this test is successful, the British authorities has confirmed being willing to buy several millions vaccines. To speed up the process, some scientists have suggested to expose the vaccinated volunteers with the virus. The reason for this is the studies need to see if those getting the test vaccine actually are protected from being infected. If this is not done in the study, we will wait to see what happens if they only by chance are infected. One of those who suggests this is Nir Eyal, professor in bio ethics at Rutgers University. He emphasizes such volunteers have to be young and healthy, they have to have access to intensive care treatment and have to be medically looked well after. This is not a generally accepted way of speeding up the process. Professor Adam Finn at the University of Bristol says we have to think this through before we do this, due to the risk for the test subjects. Bill Gates is supporting different teams in creating the vaccine. He has told he is willing to support the work of developing a vaccine, also supporting companies where the efforts turn out to not be of use. About sham treatments and false information: By now, we now should NOT be apologetic and tolerant of false information or of sham treatments. In less severe situations the only harm this does, is not helping. But in the situation we are now, false information and sham treatments create a real danger. False information and sham treatments will make it difficult for people to get the correct information they need to keep them healthy and safe. About the use of face masks: The important thing to know, is the difference between wearing a face mask to protect yourself against being infected by air, and wearing a face mask to lower emitting airborne infection from yourself to others. Wearing a face mask to protect yourself does not work. It has to be special masks, such as the N95 mask. It has to be put on correctly, and to only be worn once and then disposed of. Because of the shortage of these special masks, they should be left for those who are working with covid-19 sick patients, or work with test samples. To protect the airborne infection to spread to others from you is a completely different matter. The viruses have to be emitted into the air by droplets though coughing, sneezing or even talking, for creating an airborne infection. An ordinary face mask will stop or at least diminish the amount of emitting these droplets into the air. Also in this case, the face masks should only be used once, due to the risk for yourself being infected if the masks have viruses on them. The face masks we buy, are usually to be disposed of after use. If people used face masks made of cotton cloth - cotton because cotton can take high temperatures being washed - we would lower the amount of airborne infections. If every person had three cotton cloth face masks, they could wash by 70 degrees Celsius the used mask in the evening, and drying it. They then every day would have a clean, virus free face mask to put on. This would lower the amount of airborne infection. About the work on antiviral treatment: Edit 22. May 2020: ABOUT REMDESIVIRhttps:// The large National Institutes of Health (NIH) study that enrolled over 1,000 hospitalized COVID-19 patients across 22 countries. To qualify, patients had to be hospitalized with confirmed COVID-19 and have evidence of lung involvement, such as an abnormal chest X-ray or needing supplemental oxygen. possibility of actually getting a working antiviral treatment gives us reason for trying to contain the spread of the covid-19 virus until we actually have a treatment. An early analysis of the data, which did not include patients enrolled later in the trial, found that median time to recovery was 11 days for patients on remdesivir and 15 days for patients on placebo. It also suggested a lower death rate, 8 percent on remdesivir compared to 11.6 percent on placebo, but that difference was just short of statistical significance. UCSF Medical Center and Zuckerberg San Francisco General were among the hospitals that participated in the NIH remdesivir trial. A COVID-19 accelerated care unit is set up outside the hospital at Parnassus. This is breakthrough, as it is the first medicine with any proven effect against covid-19. Even though the effect is not great, it gives something to start with. GENERAL ABOUT ANTIVIRAL MEDICATIONS AGAINST COVID-19 A link about this work: It’s going to take a lot longer to make a COVID-19 vaccine than a treatment Quote from the link: “The leading candidate is a drug called remdesivir, which was developed by the pharmaceutical company Gilead. Research showed that it could block SARS and MERS in cells and in mice. In addition, remdesivir was used in a clinical trial looking for treatments for Ebola — and therefore, it had already gone through safety testing to make sure it doesn’t cause any harm. That’s why teams in China and the US were able to start clinical trials testing remdesivir in COVID-19 patients so quickly.” In Norway there is being done research now on antiviral therapy against the covid-19 virus. The following picture shows the platform they are working from. It shows how far the work has come with different antiviral medications against different corona virus strains. It is very interesting to really study this chart. For example, just by looking at this chart you can see that Tilorone already is approved for use against MERS. You also can see, in the first column, how far the testing of different antiviral substances have come against covid-19. Remdesivir is in Phase III. Two more phases needed before it can be used - if it at all passes the next level of tests : Paul Peterson shared the following information about antiviral medication. I am copying his comment here: “I am glad to see chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine on the chart as under testing for covid-19. I read these are “ionophores” for zinc ions…meaning they help “shuttle” zinc into (infected) cells, where zinc then blocks “RNA-dependant replicase” (enzyme) from reproducing viral proteins (slowing the rampant spread of a person's viral load. Apparently chloroquin diphosphate (a related form ) is being used in S. Korea (500 mg. per day) and China (500 mg. X 2 daily), and S. Korea has a very low death rate…Italy's fatality rate is 8 times higher (hypothesis).” ABOUT HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE Edit 22. May 2020 At first it was suggested Hydroxychloroquine might help against covid-19, but we knew we needed scientific clinical trials to see if this was the case. The conclusion was hydroxychloroquine did not help against covid-19, in fact it was dramatically raising the death rates due to heart arrhythmias. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) had a study of covid-19 ill patients treated with hydroxychloroquine together with a control group not getting the drug. In the study of 368 patients, 97 patients who took hydroxychloroquine had a 27.8% death rate. The 158 patients who did not take the drug had an 11.4% death rate. This means the death rate was nearly doubled for the patients given hydroxychloroquine compared with patients not given that drug. The patients in this study were very ill. In Sweden they conducted a multicenter clinical trial on patients hospitalized for the covid-19 infection. These were not that ill patients, as it was only generally hospitalized patients, not the critically ill patients. All the patients had cardiac surveillance. During the study the doctors noticed many of the patients who got hydroxychloroquine developed dangerous heart arrhythmias, the arrhythmias being possibly lethal. Due to this the study was stopped from ethical reasons. The Swedish health authorities also published a prohibition to use hydroxychloroquine in covid-19 ill patients, both against the use in trials or for treatment. Conclusion: Hydroxychloroquine does NOT help against covid-19. It in stead represents a risk of higher mortality rate in covid-19 ill patients. Original answer: Ways the hydroxychloroquine might work against covid-19: Hydroxychloroquine has a slight antiviral property. The drug is used against different diseases. In addition to being used against malaria, it is used against several autoimmune diseases, such as severe rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. Because an over reaction of the inflammatory response of the body may be part of the cause for the Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrom and the Cytokine Storm, the latter leading to multi organ failure, it is speculated the hydroxychloroquine might help in these cases because of its anti inflammatory properties. Other anti inflammatory drugs have been tried, such as the NSAIDs and corticosteroids. These did not work against the conditions. It is important to have scientific clinical studies with control groups, and see the results from these studies before concluding if hydroxychloroquine is helping or not. A thank to Rowince Gangwar for edit the language in this answer.
I would say no, not yet. But it can in near future. Let's break it down. Firstly we have to look at the sales performance of Tata Harrier individually before we begin to compare it with any other car. So how good is Tata Harrier doing when it comes to sales? Pretty good actually!! We are now in October of 2020 and last month the total sales of the car stood at 1755 units, which is 4 percent more than in august when the sales were 1694 units. If we look at the sales last year exactly i.e. in September 2019, it was just 941 units. It means that the sales went up by a whopping 87 percent in just one year. Considering these numbers, it is safe to say that Tata Harrier is doing great and it is among very few cars in this pandemic times which are on an upward trajectory. ——————————————————————————————————— Let’s start comparing now. But first, to compare its sales with any other competitor, we have to clearly identify who its competitors really are. I think any car which is the same type, an SUV in this case, and falls in the same price range could be considered as a competitor. As the Indian automobile market is a very price-sensitive market, we should only take cars that fall in the same price bracket as competitors to have a fair evaluation. So the on-road price of Tata Harrier starts at ₹15 lakhs which goes up to ₹23 Lakhs depending upon the variants. The cars that fall in a similar price range are these- Mahindra Scorpio MG Hector Mahindra XUV 500 Some people would say that the Jeep compass is also its direct competition, but I don’t think so as that car is almost ₹5 lakhs costlier than Harrier. Other than that all three cars listed above are its direct competition. Now let’s talk numbers!!! XUV 500 is having a hard time keeping up with the competition, as it is lacking behind in terms of performance, mileage, safety, and almost every other thing. Which we can clearly identify from its falling sales digits, as they say, numbers never lie. XUV 500 sales were 47 percent off from its last year and 37 percent down from last month. It just sold 595 units this September, its graph is going continuously downwards. So the aged XUV 500 is no threat to the newly launched Tata Harrier, we have clearly established that by now. But it’s not the same story if we compare Harrier with MG hector or Mahindra Scorpio. Both Scorpio and MG Hector are beating Tata Harrier in sales. As of September, Hector’s and Scorpio’s sales stood at 2410 units and 3527 units respectively, compared to 1755 that of Harrier. Scorpio, although being an age-old car, has been able to maintain a respectable sales level for a very long time, thanks to its boxy design, cheap maintenance costs, and high resale value. But it lags behind Harrier in actual performance and many other fronts. MG Hector is true competition in my opinion. They both came out the same year and have very similar specs and features. They both have a similar 2.0 liter-4 cylinder diesel engine which produces 170 horses. But MG being a foreign brand name, something we Indians always get attracted to, had the upper hand when it came to sales each month. MG also smartly rolled off the petrol variant is well, which further enhanced their sales. Hector’s big infotainment system also gave it an edge against the competition. Although both Hector and Scorpio have sold more units last month compared to Harrier their sales are declining over time. Hector’s sales have decreased by 8% from last month and by 12% from last year. In the meantime, Harrier’s sales are rising fast. People are finally realizing the worth of this homemade underrated gem. Conclusion: Coming back to the question, I think it would be early to say that Tata Harrier is outselling the competition because its competitors have sold overall more units than it and are still showing higher sales each month. But comparing the graphs of Harrier and its competition, we can say that Tata Harrier might win over its competitors in the coming months.
Thanks Joseph V M for the question What is the truth behind controversy surrounding vlogger Sujith Bhakthan and the automotive company MG? Truth is never single faced. Truth always have many faces. It depends upon which side you wish for in your perspective as fair. Thats what Bhagavat Gita taught me. And I am a firm believer in that. Okay, for non Malayalees, this is a huge social media issue prevailing in Kerala, which outsiders may not be much aware of. Sujith Bhaktan is one of Kerala’s most celebrated Social media influencer who runs his own Youtube channel- Tech Travel Eat (which has pages in Instagram, FB etc). He focus mostly on quick lifestyle travels, technology products and eateries primarily. However off recently he used to do user experience review of vehicles too, though he always claims he is not an automobile journalist and not an automobile expert. But as a person who is passionate in travel and always enjoys driving, he used to make user reviews occasionally in past. He has a close associate/friend- Emil George who is an automobile enthusiast and has extreme craze in driving. Ever since they started doing joint videos, often user reviews of vehicles started coming up in Sujith’s channel, though Emil also claims that he is not an automobile journalist and not a professional auto reviewer. But he often does off-roading stuff like that along with Sujith. Last year, ie in 2019, Sujith and Emil did an All India tour for his channel called INB Series (India-Nepal-Bhutan Expedition) in his vehicle- Ford Ecospot. When they reached Punjab, they saw MG Hector for the first time. MG Hector was just released a few weeks back then and only available in NCR region then. They did a test drive there and became a fan of MG Hector. It was thro’ that episode, Malayalees in Kerala also got first hand experience of MG brand and its first vehicle - MG Hector. This episode was a paid promotion from MG side (which he aptly mentioned as disclaimer in the episode). But he became a fan of the vehicle that he announced he will soon buy this vehicle when it will be available in Kerala in that episode. They returned back to Kerala by August 2019 and in this time, MG Showroom got opened in Kochi. The MG dealer in Kerala- EVM group contacted Sujith and he agreed to be the launch customer in Kerala. Thus the first Hector was sold to Sujith and due to his popularity, MG Hector got a strong brand advertising in the state. Hector being a new brand, it wasn’t that common in the streets. But because Sujith had Hector and he regularly showed his car in his videos, there was a strong brand familiarity. This improved the sales of Hector in Kerala rapidly. And personally he always used to highlight how the car was great. MG Motors regularly used to contact Sujith whenever their new cars are released in market and Sujith used to do promotion for them by making user review which were mostly positives. In same manner, when MG released its SUV- Gloster, Sujith was called to make an User review experience. But because Gloster was released very late in Kerala and there was only one test piece reached in Kochi, the company had to give to many automobile journalists and affluent people for test drives etc. To avoid staggered reviews coming out, the company imposed an embargo for all automobile journalists and social media influencers from releasing the review untill Oct 31st 2020, though they did their test drives and shot videos eariler. Sujith and Emil got this vehicle in second week of Oct and they took the vehicle to Wayanad forest area for a drive and planned to do a small off-roading there. They did that and the video was shot, but didn’t release then, due to the embargo. The video came out in Oct 31st 2020. But unlike other MG vehicles, Sujith made a negative review. This was because the vehicle failed in off-loading even in very small hilly terrain. The system started showing as faulty gear and switched off inbetween. And it was struggling with power issues even at a very small hilly terrain (the surface was very much rocky by the way) And then the issue broke out. According to Hector, Sujith Bhaktan did a purposeful negative review because the company refused to upgrade his Hector to Gloster at its showroom price. The company officials claimed, Sujith Bhaktan demanded having a Gloster for Rs 35 Lakh (ex-showroom price) as final on-road price instead of Rs 40 Lakh (On-road price). That means a discount of 5 Lakh, which the company rejected. So he made purposeful negative video as per company’s version. Further many officials made rumors that Sujith made unfaithful review only to help Ford Endeavor which has lavishly sponsored his current trip (Leh-Ladakh Expedition). According to Sujith Bhaktan, he said he always does ethical reviews, even if paid. He won’t make false statements or exaggerated reports on products he endorses. He said, he was always happy with MG Motors and their vehicles and in all his reviews he has highlighted their positives and ignored some minor negatives which isn’t that big. But in Gloster, he said, its key feature was its offroad capabilities and that failed miserably. He said, even in the episode he said clearly it might be a specific problem of that vehicle, not common to all and he said he will request MG to provide another test vehicle to try offloading. As per Sujith’s statement, this episode series was shot in first and second week of Oct 2020, but when it was failed, he promptly informed the company and asked for a replacement vehicle to do a test drive and offroading, so that he can make positive review. The company didn’t have one such, so that was not approved. Since there was an embargo, he couldn’t release the video in Oct second week. So he sent the unlisted video to the company to check and give their opinion. The company choose not to respond and since there was no instruction of not to publish, he published the video once the embargo was over. He also refuted the company’s charges that he demanded a discount of 5 lakh. He said, he indeed asked as he was not in mood of buying a luxury vehicle. But when the company officials asked whether he has interest or not, he jokingly asked for a discount knowing well, they will not accept. He said, he was perfectly happy with his Hector brought a year back and no mood for an immediate upgrade to premium segment. He also challenged MG Motors to provide him a replacement vehicle and he said he will take that vehicle along with competitor vehicles like Endeavor, Fortuner etc in a similar terrain road and does a competitive offroading session with experts and have a comparison video. But for that, MG Motors choose not respond. Instead of that, the dealer used a cyber lynching using its employees and their friends circle to discredit Sujith in social media. But the worst came when Malayala Manorama did an article defaming Sujith to the worst with very worst form of description and shaming without naming him personally, rather just as vloggers with a cartoon that looks similar to him. Anyone who read that article know well, that its a paid article sponsored by MG Motors as part of shaming Sujith Bhaktan. The degrading article aimed to shame and discredit Sujith Bhaktan without naming him as such After that incident, Sujith announced that he sold his own car- MG Hector while in his trip in Ladakh without even waiting for his return back as he no more wishes to associate with MG Motors. That was a huge blow to MG Motors in Kerala as Sujith was the first customer and he played a key role in promoting their products. This became a huge social media controversy with many people supporting and opposing Sujith as well as MG Motors. The outcome of this controversy- only time will tell Now to the question- which side has the truth I can’t answer that as we are not in privy of what happened between Sujith and MG Motors. Its very clear, Sujith loved MG Motors very much and his personal hector. Only few weeks before the controversy, he spent money to revamp his Hector with new looks thro’ a series of modifications etc. So naturally that shows his personal affection with that car. Yet if he has to sell that car within weeks after spending so much for customization, it shows he was heavily traumatized by MG Motors thro’ their indirect cyber lynching and shaming. But yes, he was into paid promotion business which he always tells. His income is thro’ endorsing products and he is a social media influencer with 1.4 Million subscribers. But Sujith always know in the industry for his ethics. He rarely used to do any negative videos and he rarely does competitor promotion videos. If he endorses one product, he rarely endorses similar product of same range which is in direct competition. But in this case, Sujith was promoting Ford Endeavor for a long time. Infact prior to MG Gloster launch, Ford company has given their new 2020 Endeavor to Sujith for test drive and give user review experience for which he made many positive reviews. Its only after that, Gloster came and a negative review came from his side, which can make people think he did purposefully. And when this review came in Oct 31st 2020, he was already in Leh Ladakh expedition sponsored by Ford using the same Ford Endeavor. Naturally it helped MG Motors to claim that he was working at behest of their competitor. However its equally surprisingly, how Sujith able to hack the onboard systems of MG Gloster which constantly showed faulty gear indicators while climbing a small hill. Thats not possible for an ordinary vlogger like Sujith. So as the car was struggling in climbing which was visible to all. And Sujith clearly said in that video, it might be specific to that particular vehicle and will redo the episode again once MG provides new vehicle. He also showed the whatsapp communication between him and MG officials where he said that he was not pleased with performance and need a replacement. And MG didn’t bother for it. So as MG also didn’t provide a second chance to Sujith to use another vehicle and do a test session again. Its perfectly okay if one vehicle in test drive might be a damaged piece. They even choose not to respond to Sujith’s message eariler about unlisted video sent to them. Rather they used cyber lynchings and defaming option once the video is published instead of countering with facts, which is truly unprofessional. And remember, MG Motors once used Sujith Bhaktan’s media reach to get this brand in Kerala market and all of sudden they disowned him MG’s promotion in 2019 using Sujith Bhaktan to endorse their Hector brand. MG Motors generally donot have huge repute primarily because its a Chinese brand and the ongoing conflict with China has affected their brand status (that they even started highlighted their British Legacy for Gloster to disassociate with China). Since Kerala market is not too much bothered with pseudo-nationalist cries as one sees in many other parts of India, MG Motors sales weren’t affected much. But there was another worrisome factor. MG Motors failed miserably in Middle East and lot of Malayalee NRKs often review their negative experience about MG Dubai and MG Saudi etc. This was often countered with Sujith’s positive experience with Hector. Now the negative review against Gloster re-affirmed many NRKs opinions about MG. And Gloster being a premium brand, its customer base would be more of NRKs. Their negative experience in Middle East and current negative video in Kerala, will complicate things for MG Company. So I believe, MG Motors should have dealt this simply issue with more tactically manner rather trying to attack a popular vlogger thro’ cheap indirect means. If they believe, Sujith was manipulating, they should have come in public and expose Sujith’s wrongs or accept his challenge. But instead they choose silence and used indirectly cyber lynching options which everyone could understand it is fuelled by the company directly. Its bit shocking to see, their own Regional Manager- Feni has joined in this cyber lynching manner thro’ commenting against Sujith personally in Youtube and FB. Such behaviour is unprofessional to the core. Sujith might lost his favorite car, but eventually he is buying a new car. As an individual that chapter is over. But for MG, they lost a public trust factor. Thats something big
To answer this, I need to present you with some idea of its rivals and also on why Creta is preferred over its rivals including its sibling Kia Seltos too. Be patient and you’ll get the answer for sure. Instead of running through all the details, I’d like to simply represent some key points of its rivals so that it’ll be evident on why Creta is successful than any other SUV in the segment itself. Kia Seltos : If you consider Kia Seltos, it has everything like features, space, impeccable styling, sporty characteristics and much more. But, it falls flat on the only aspect in which it should excell and i.e, ride quality. Apart from that, Seltos is an awesome offering from Kia which shook the market for quite a while once it was launched. Harrier : Harrier despite being macho with massive proportions, superb styling with LandRover underpinnings, spacy interiors and also with a bigger engine is actually very costly compared to both Creta and Seltos and on the contrary, it does lack some essentials such as TPMS, all-wheel disc brakes, refined powertrain, responsive infotainment and all making it a less compelling package. In my opinion, Harrier should be considered for someone who loves space, appeal, excellent ride quality with decent features list. There’s still one more left. MG Hector : Hector despite its massive proportions and MPV like styling, it stood out because of its sheer boot space and technological features such as AI assistant, vertical infotainment, connected tech and others. But, its lack of AT gearbox in diesel even in 2020 and its massive body role and the body heft and all work in its opposition. So, this is the reason why Hector is focussed for those customers who love tech intensly. Now, Hyundai didn’t perform any outstanding job with Creta. Instead they’ve just improvised what was lacking in Kia Seltos but apart from that, Hyundai has loaded most of its SX variants with as many features possible by making it accessible for the ones in tight budget that reaches only till SX and not SX(O). Forgot to mention that Hyundai has great brand reputation in India and also maintenance, resale value are pretty good too. Improvisations such as 1. Radical styling 2. Panoramic sunroof(lacking in Kia Seltos) 3. Connected car tech with more features 4. Horizontal infotainment with great response 5. Good ride quality(lacking in Kia Seltos) 6. Fresh instrumentation 7. German brands inspired cabin(I really don’t know if this is good or not but it mimicks the experience atleast) 8. Buttons inside the vehicle feel nice and the matte black on plastics looks clean and simple rather than piano black accence that attracts more finger prints. 9. Paddle shifters So, in my opinion, these improvisations are what made it to appeal larger customer base and made it successful by beating all its rivals.
