Nabi Baksh considers Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to be a mere puppet in the hands of the army and the country lacks democratic government.
Nabi Baksh said,”We don’t expect anything from Nawaz Sharif, he is a mere puppet, and the army is ruling the country. They do not have a democratic government in Pakistan,”
Nabi, reacted to the reports on Sharif’s telephonic conversation with Pakistan’s Army Chief General Raheel Sharif said, “It was like General Raheel was telling Sharif that listen you have to read this paper there. So, what can we expect from him?”

On Tuesday, Baloch Republican Party chief Brahamdagh Bugti spoke on the current scenario saying, there is a war like situation in Balochistan, and human rights violations are rampant due to heavy presence of military forces in the region.
“In Balochistan, it is a war like situation. There is a huge presence of military and Frontier Corps (FC) in areas like Quetta. And they pick up people for slightest of political activity,” Bugti told ANI.

He further added that the people of Balochistan have tried long enough to be a part of Pakistan but they have always been exploited.
“When we were forcibly merged with Pakistan we tried to stay with it and be given equal rights but whenever we talked about our rights, military operations were conducted and our people were killed. This is the fifth military operation and is being done since ten years. Our language is different, culture is different, code of life is different so there is no point that we stay with them forcibly,” Bugti said.

masks do not fit properly, the risk of infection rises to roughly 4%

Even at two metres distance, it takes less than five minutes for an unvaccinated person standing in the breath of a person with Covid-19 to become infected with almost 100 per cent certainty. But, if both are wearing well-fitting medical masks, the risk drops dramatically, finds a study.

In a comprehensive study, a team from the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Gottingen showed that if both the infected and the non-infected person wear well-fitting masks, the maximum risk of infection after 20 minutes is hardly more than one per thousand, even at the shortest distance.

If their masks fit poorly, the probability of infection increases to about four per cent. If both wear well-fitting medical masks, the virus is likely to be transmitted within 20 minutes with a maximum probability of ten per cent.

The study also confirms the intuitive assumption that for effective protection against infection, in particular. the infected person should wear a mask that filters as well as possible and fits tightly to the face.

"We would not have thought that at a distance of several metres it would take so little time for the infectious dose to be absorbed from the breath of a virus carrier," said Eberhard Bodenschatz, Director at the Max Planck.
