This study was done at a tertiary care unit to determine the incidence of electrolyte imbalance in asphyxiated new born. Out of 777 neonates enrolled for study about 48% neonates had disorders of sodium imbalance and about 20% neonates had disorders of Potassium imbalance.

The vaccination drive in India is the topmost drive for prevention against COVID-19 vaccination globally. It started from 16th January 2021. In this drive two vaccines have been used. These are Oxford-AstraZeneca’s Covishield and Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin. This drive has already crossed 600,000 mark in first four days and the government has stated that the drive will be further accelerated in coming days to ensure immunity to the citizens of the country. However, there is a section of the community which is still skeptical to the COVID-19 vaccination. This research work has been conducted to analyze the sentiments in the tweets posted in India regarding these two vaccines. The analysis shows that while a majority of the population is posting with positive sentiments towards these vaccines, there are also negative sentiments associated with them, associated with the emotions such as fear and anger.
