home during the coronavirus pandemic turned to the Japanese electronics and entertainment company's video games and other visual content. Sony Corp. reported a record profit of 1.17 trillion yen (USD 11 billion) for the fiscal year that ended March 31, roughly doubling from 582 billion yen the previous fiscal year. The popularity of the “Demon Slayer” animation film also helped, along with solid sales in mobile game applications and digital content. Demand persists for the PlayStation 5 game console, which went on sale last year.

I n the battle against Covid-19, journalists across the globe have worked shoulder
to shoulder with doctors, nurses, paramedical staff as well as healthcare providers and experts in various fields related to health and medicine to put
things in perspective: be it a lowdown on Covid-19 caseloads, reproduction number of the virus, positivity, recovery, mortality, analyses of countless data-driven studies relating to coronavirus, updates on what the governments are doing or not doing to help contain the virus, or 'ground' reports on the huge piles of bodies currently burning in makeshift crematoriums. In the process, these warriors, wielding pens or cameras, have been sucked into the dance of death triggered by the pandemic. The Pioneer joins journalistic circles in paying tributes to these intrepid Indian journalists who have lost their lives after contracting Covid-19 in line of duty.

CM’s Covid rapid test result negative PNS n HYDERABAD
Chief Minister K.Chandrasekhar Rao, who has been in isolation at his farmhouse, underwent Covid tests on Wednesday.

ML MELLY MAITREYI n HYDERABAD
The second wave of the pandem- ic, with corona cases surging across Telangana, has started stabilizing, particularly over the last few days, though the next three to four weeks are crucial to flatten the Covid-19 curve.
Dr.G.Srinivasa Rao, Director of Public Health, said that, thanks to various measures taken by the State government to contain the pandemic and the cooperation extended by people, there was 'some improvement' in the last one week.
Addressing a media conference at his office here on Wednesday, Dr Srinivasa Rao said that over the last four weeks people had realized the importance of Covid- appropriate behaviour and a majority of peo-
ple were wearing masks, observing physical distance, and avoiding congregations.
The impact on controlling the pandemic would be greater if peo- ple took precautions and observed
preventive measures, aside from the efforts of the government and var- ious institutions. "If people extend- ed the same cooperation, then by May-end itself, we can gain control over the pandemic, instead of wait- ing till June or July," he said.
So far, 45 lakh people above 45 years of age and healthcare and frontline workers have been vacci- nated. Dr.Srinivas Rao said there was no need for panic and anxiety. In the first wave, the recovery rate was 99.5 per cent and even in the second wave the overall recovery would be 99 per cent.

CoWIN servers crash, as Covid vaccine registration for 18+ begins PNS n HYDERABAD
Although the Union Health Ministry has opened registrations for COVID-19 vaccines to be administered to those in the expanded age group of 18-44 years from May 1, many people are unable to register on CoWIN por- tal, which went public at 4:00 pm on Wednesday for the purpose, or via Arogya Setu app. Many report- edly tried registering on CoWin portal soon after 4:00 pm, but failed due to server issues.
Apart from the Co-WIN portal, the Arogya Setu app also went down. They both crashed as soon as the registrations opened on
Wednesday. Many people com- plained that registrations in the CoWIN portal were successful only for those in the age group of 45 years and above.
Crematoriums in Hyd cashing on Covid 2nd wave Packages for performing last rites ANUSHA PUPPALA n HYDERABAD
Cashing in on the surge in coron- avirus cases and deaths, some of the crematoriums in the city, along with heartless, avaricious middle- men, are offering pricey packages for performing the last rites of those who died of COVID-19.
There are differing packages available for the last journey, from mortuary to burial ground. Middlemen are reportedly offering packages that can go up to Rs 80,000 each.
All this is happening because, due to lack of space in mortuar- ies, hospitals are asking the rela- tives of the deceased to take away the bodies. The relatives are forced to look for ambulances and freez- ers to preserve the bodies until the
next day for funerals as they can't take the bodies home due to COVID-19 protocol.T-BJP cornered for its
huge election rallies BJP says not violated Covid protocol PNS n HYDERABAD
While the Union government headed by the Bharatiya Janata Party is facing flak for not taking proactive steps to contain the sec- ond wave of Covid -19 raging across the country, the Telangana unit of BJP has given scope for fur- ther criticism by holding huge ral- lies, in stark violation of the Covid protocol, in connection with the ongoing elections to the urban local bodies.
On Wednesday, the last day for campaigning, the BJP held mega campaign rallies in Warangal, Khammam and other places. The
BJP, in its official Twitter handle, tweeted big rally pictures and later removed the photos after receiving criticism from the public.
Politicos become ‘paper tigers’, courtesy Covid SNCN ACHARYULU n HYDERABAD
Covid -19 has changed not only people's lifestyle, but also work cul- ture. In particular, coronavirus has changed the functioning of politi- cal parties and their offices. Locked in, political parties have all become 'paper tigers' - the term they use to describe one another in the polit- ical arena.
Political leaders and workers have stopped coming to their main offices. Some political parties have officially announced the closure of their headquarters in view of the
Covid pandemic. Before the outbreak of Corona
the offices of political parties were a beehive of activity, with party
leaders, workers, visitors having back-to-back meetings. Besides, the main political parties used to conduct at least two to three media conferences daily. Beat reporters, cameramen and elec- tronic media representatives used to regularly cover activities of various parties.
These days no political leader, worker or media person is seen in any political party's office in the Telugu states. Due to this, the offices of various political parties in the Telugu states wear a deserted look.
Covishield price for states reduced to Rs 300 PNS n NEW DELHI
Serum Institute of India's Covishield will cost states Rs 300 instead of Rs 400, CEO Adar Poonawalla tweeted today, calling it a "philanthropic gesture".
"As a philanthropic gesture on behalf of Serum Institute of India, I hereby reduce the price to the states from Rs.400 to Rs.300 per dose, effective immediately; this will save thousands of crores of state funds going forward. This will enable more vaccinations and save countless lives," Mr Poonawalla wrote in his tweet.
The higher prices of vaccines for states and private hospitals have provoked anger and debate since Serum made the announce- ment weeks ago.

More than lack of oxygen, undue anxiety kills Coronavirus patients PNS n HYDERABAD
A condition known as ‘hyper- carbia’, which means excessive levels of carbon-dioxide in one’s bloodstream, is proving to be the bane for Covid-19 patients.
The condition can lead to heart stroke and also that of the brain. It can lead to forma- tion of blood clots and also hormonal imbalance.
The condition is believed to be one of the reasons for the death of some Covid-19 patients.
There are many examples that present a plausible expla- nation how hypercarbia has led to death of patients who tested positive for the virus.
Sairam, a 40-year-old man from Vijayawada, tested pos- itive for the virus. He remained asymptomatic. However, he got himself admitted to a hospital. His oxygen levels plummeted and he frequently spoke to his near and dear expressing con- cern at being infected. After receiving treatment for five
days, he breathed his last. In another case, Koti, a 38-
year-old man from Nunna village, tested positive for the virus a week ago. He got admitted to a Covid-19 hospi- tal for treatment. From the hospital, he used to call up his family and friends and tell them that there was something bothering him. He spoke over the phone always setting aside the oxygen cap. As a result, he
died of hypercarbia. In fact, 90 per cent of
Covid-19 patients are under severe stress and complicating their cases and inching closer to death instead of defeating the virus successfully.
In April, the virus claimed lives of over 64 in the region. Doctors say that 50 percent of the fatalities were due to severe anxiety. They advise the patients to remain confident
and receive treatment without unduly worrying whether they would recover.
While a healthy person breathes 12-16 times a minute, Covid patients, out of anxiety, breathe more rapidly thereby pumping requisite quantity of oxygen into the bloodstream.
This leads to increasing lev- els of carbon-dioxide levels in blood. As a result, the patient passes out due to the hypercar- bia impact on the brain. He is also at risk of suffering heart stroke. Moreover, Covid patients are at risk of forma- tion of blood clots. When in anxiety, the blood supply rate increases. The blood clots obstruct free flow of blood and can lead to heart and brain strokes. There is likelihood of Covid patients collapsing sud- denly. Moreover, it can lead to hormonal imbalance in them.
The patients should have the positive attitude that receiving good treatment will help them recover from the virus. Without becoming hyper anxious, the patients should perform breathing
exercises, take nutritious food. Those who receive treat-
ment while in home isolation should check oxygen levels as frequently as possible. Performing light exercises, patients should receive the treatment with the confidence of recovering soon. In such persons, the virus can be defeated without any side- effects.
However, the patients undu- ly worrying about their recov- ery will lead to steep fall in oxygen levels.
The stress levels by them- selves will destroy their con- fidence and even if they get oxygen support, they are unable to recover. Splitting of blood vessels,…
