Re: 5G Technology News Discussions, Strategy and Impact to India

This doesn't sound very credible. Reliance has no history of making Telecom equipment. Over the decades in building up its network it has always used imported (mostly Chinese ) equipment.

Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Resource Thread

In much of India, summer months are beginning. In Delhi, day time temperatures are reaching 38C and there is enough UV (my guess is between 75-80 W/m^2 UV for at least 3 hours) from sunlight to kill the virus on outdoor surfaces.
