Amit Shah BJP

New Delhi, Aug 2 : After taking personal charge of controlling the spiralling numbers of Covid-19 cases in the national capital and bringing them down to below a thousand per day, Union Home Minister Amit Shah has himself tested positive for the infectious disease.

Disclosing it on Twitter, Shah said that he got himself tested after “initial signs” of coronavirus. He said that he is fine but is getting admitted to a hospital on advice of doctors.

He also urged everyone who has come in contact with him in recent days to self-isolate and get themselves tested.

According to the protocol of contact tracing, those who came in contact with him recently, particularly the last 10 days, will be asked to undergo Covid-19 tests.

After the news spread, top politicians including BJP President J.P. Nadda, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav wished Shah a speedy recovery.

Shah has been leading Delhi’s fight against the deadly pandemic from the front. After Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia apprehended that the national capital will have more than 5 lakh cases of Covid-19 by the end of July and the Supreme Court too came down harshly on the Delhi government for its handling of the pandemic, Shah took it upon himself to ramp up the capital’s heath infrastructure and empower hospitals with necessary equipments like PPE kits and ventilators.

Earlier, BJP leader Jyotiraditya Scindia, and party spokesman Sambit Patra were also detected to have the disease. Even now, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shvraj Singh Chouhan, who had also tested positive, is admitted to hospital.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk

San Francisco, Sep 23 : Elon Musk has said that Tesla plans to produce an electric car with a price tag of $25,000 within the next three years.

The aim, said Musk on Battery Day on Tuesday, is to make Tesla electric cars more affordable for the masses.

“That will basically be on-par or slightly better than a comparable gasoline car. This has always been our dream to make an affordable electric car,” he said during the virtual presentation.

The cheapest Tesla Model 3 that made its debut in February 2019 currently costs $35,000. it offers a 350-km range, a top speed of 210 km per hour and acceleration from 0-100 km per hour in 5.6 seconds.

“Tesla says has only been made possible by shifting sales to an online-only platform and by winding down physical outlets,” reports ZDNet.

Tesla is known for the Model Y, Model S, Model X, and Model 3 product lines.

“For a lot of people, they want to buy a Tesla, but they simply don’t have the money. We could make the car infinitely desirable, but if someone does not have the money, they won’t buy it,” Musk said.

The Tesla CEO also announced the development of a new battery cell and a reduction in cell cost per kilowatt-hour.

The main announcement was Tesla’s new larger cylindrical cells. It was claimed the new batteries will provide five times more energy, six times more power and 16 per cent greater driving range.

“But the technology announced is likely to take years to implement. Tesla’s approach includes integrating the battery so that it forms part of the structure of the vehicle, thereby reducing the effective weight of the battery,” reports the BBC.

Musk also announced that as well as purchasing batteries from Panasonic and LG Chem.
