HYDERABAD: Telangana IT and Industries Minister KT Rama Rao and Congress MP from Kerala, Shashi Tharoor's friendly tete-a-tete on Twitter had the Netizens talking about their friendly banter over the naming of COVID medicines and Tharoor's infamous usage of complicated words.
KTR who has been extremely busy handling COVID measures in the state physically and virtually over Twitter, while helping people in distress took some time off from a stressful day on Thursday night and tweeted about the names of COVID medications that are complicated to pronounce. It's not surprising when he comes across these names on Twitter as people request for help.
"I suspect Shashi TharoorJi Pakka has a role to play in this, he tweeted after posting a note on the medicines.
" On a lighter note, any idea who comes up with these unpronounceable names for meds? - Posaconazole - Cresemba - Tocilzumab - Remdesivir - Liposomal Amphoterecin - Flavipiravir - Molnupiravir - Baricitinib And the list goes on..."
To which the witty MP replied, "Not guilty! How can you indulge in such floccinaucinihilipilification, KTR? Left to me I'd happily call them "CoroNil", "CoroZero", & even "GoCoroNaGo!" But these pharmacists are more procrustean...''.
