‘Buy from trusted sources only’ DoT tells Telecom Operators, ahead 5G Deployment

A huge storm for Chinese telecom equipment manufacturers prior to 5G deployment, the center ordered telecom companies on Monday to procure equipment only from “trusted sources” to extend or upgrade existing networks.

The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) issued a corresponding notice on Monday to strengthen the rules for telecommunications licenses.

The main objective of this move is to prevent Chinese companies such as Huawei and ZTE from providing telecommunications equipment for future 5G services to Indian carriers.

“From June 15, 2021, License may only include trusted products in its network and has competent authority to upgrade or extend its existing network with telecommunications equipment that is not designated as a trusted product, “stated the DoT notice

The government has clarified that these instructions will not affect the ongoing annual maintenance contract or software renewal of existing equipment.

In 2021, DoT made changes to its telecom licensing standards, adding “defense” and “national security” as parameters for purchasing reliable telecommunications products. The competent authority can then ask the telecommunications company not to use products that are considered unsafe. In the latest notice, DoT has added the word “expansion” to the license terms. Chinese tech giants have not yet done the paperwork to get approval for a “trustworthy source” as per which they are not safe for use.

“We have found that these Chinese telecom gears are not safe at all. It is dangerous to use these devices,” said an official with the telecom ministry.

Before, operators blocked the uses of Huawei devices in several countries, including the United States, United Kingdom and Sweden, for security concerns. Also, Canada have accused Huawei of spying for the Chinese government.

The government’s action plan at the forefront of telecommunications seems to be highly valued and awaited by central security and intelligence agencies.

China Says Shared All Data With Who To Probe Covid Origin, Reacted To India

China informed that all the data and analyses have been shared with the experts of the World Health Organization (WHO) tracing the origin of the Coronavirus and also stated that it is ready to continue working with the global experts to jointly study and analyze the data.

As per the official report the joint study group of the World Health Organisation and China to trace the origin of Covid-19 releases a report which flagged that more data will be available to the investigators by Beijing.

After the report was released India had demanded a comprehensive and expert-led mechanism to expeditiously investigate the origin of coronavirus. Even the US, the UK, and several other countries have also voiced their concerns over the findings.

While reacting to the demand of Indian, China stated that they had twice invited WHO experts for the study of the origin of Covid-19 and offered necessary facilitation for the team’s work, fully demonstrating its openness, transparency, and responsible attitude. Even the joint study group tracing the origin of Covid-19 has unanimously agreed that the allegation of a ‘lab leak’ is extremely unlikely.

The report further informed that the experts of the joint mission who are working to find out the origin of the virus made field trips to several institutions which include the Hubei Provincial Center for Disease Control, the Wuhan Center for Disease Control, and the Wuhan Institute of Virology, besides visiting the biosafety laboratories, and had in-depth and candid exchanges with the experts there.

As per the experts, the virus may have been spread in places other than China early on, and a global perspective is needed to carry out the origin-tracing work. The report also proposes multiple tasks to be conducted worldwide and they hope that the relevant countries can cooperate with the WHO expert mission in an open, transparent and responsible manner like China did.

In addition, Prime Minister Modi will highlight the current state of the world economy during the epidemic. India has been invited as a guest at the meeting. China is excluded from this group of the world’s seven richest countries.

Even if China does not attend the meeting, the dragon will keep a close eye on it. Beijing has been at loggerheads with the United States and the European Union over the South China Sea, Taiwan and Hong Kong. At the same time, China’s border dispute with India, which has been invited as a guest, is at an all-time high, so China will monitor the approach of India and other prosperous countries.

China gives up; withdraws it’s army from Ladakh

The Dragon Army has removed its tent. It has even removed large quantities of weapons and tanks deployed at the border. A major statement has been made by the Indian Army. In response to the Indian military’s response to the August 24-30 attack, China said it had given up.

“Since February 10, China has been withdrawing from the Pangang area,” said YK Joshi, a lieutenant general of the Indian Army. The armies of both countries will meet it in four processes. In the third phase, the ground forces will be removed at Kailash Ranger Rezang. Army officials from both countries are in talks. China failed in the face of the Indian military’s prowess in August.

He added that in the first two phases, tanks and military trucks were removed. Both sides have removed the tank. In the fourth phase, the infantry will be removed. China was not expected to back down so soon. But the response from the Army to the LAC on the night of August 30 was a turning point.

“The Indians have not left an inch of land,” he said. Both countries agreed. China will fall behind Finger 4 and Finger 8. Finger 8 is India’s claim line. China is lagging behind Finger 8. China is destroying all houses built between Finger 4 and Finger 8. This is a great achievement for India.

Notably, on August 29-30, the Indian Javanese occupied the Rezan Mountains. The Indian tank was deployed. The Chinese tank was watched by Indian telescopes. The Indian army wes patient and did not shoot. However, more than 50 Chinese Javanese were taken in vehicles during the Galwan War. They were injured or killed. So it’s hard to say how many chinese troops died. Recently, the Russian news agency TASS reported that 45 Chinese soldiers had been killed in the Galwan clash

Amid Fight Against Covid-19, ICMR Warns India Of ‘Cat Que Virus’

Another Chinese Virus is known as “Cat Que virus” has been reported in China and Vietnam. According to researchers at the Indian Council of Medical research’s National Institute of Virology in Pune, this virus is in Culex mosquitoes and pigs. Due to the expanse of similar species of the Culex mosquitoes in India, this virus can be replicated.

Already the world is still fighting the numbers of COVID-19, which is increasing day by day.  The ICMR scientists informed that this virus could cause disease in India, and even it can be as it grapples with the Coronavirus pandemic. ‘Cat Que Virus’ or CQV can cause febrile illness, meningitis, and pediatric encephalitis in human beings. 

In 2014 and 2017, two samples for CQV tested positive, which came from Karnataka. The scientists discovered antibodies for this virus in two out of the 883 human serum samples tested across states.

According to the apex research body, domestic pigs are the primary mammalian host of CQV, and antibodies against the virus have been notified in swine reared locally in China, indicating that CQV has formed a natural cycle in local areas.

Research proclaimed in the Indian Journal of Medical Research in June stated that – Anti-CQV IgG antibody positivity in human serum samples tested and the replication capability of CQV in mosquitoes indicated a possible disease-causing potential of CQV in the Indian scenario. Screening of more humane and swine serum samples using these assays is required as a proactive measure to understand the prevalence of this neglected tropical virus.

Data showed that mosquitoes such as Ae. aegypti, Cx. quinquefasciatus and Cx. tritaeniorhynchus were susceptible to CQV. Hence, mosquitoes were found to be a potential vector for CQV transmission to mammalian hosts.
