Afin d'éviter toute confusion, j'ai supprimé un précédent tweet de statistiques qui prenait en compte des données qui ont été révisées à la baisse en raison de l'ajustement des méthodes de comptage des cas confirmés de #Coronavirus #COVID19

There’s a particular irony in people emphasizing the role of hospital preparedness right now. Comments about HPP funding and such are important, yes, but what we really need to address is how hospitals invest in biopreparedness. (1/x)
Primarily, hospital preparedness for infectious diseases is led by infection prevention/epidemiology (we saw this w/Ebola and it took up like 80%+ of our daily activities). The issue though is that these programs are woefully understaff & bioprep is not a major priority (2/x)
IPC efforts are mostly focused on HAIs for a myriad of reasons (mandated reporting, financial penalties, etc.) and that’s often a result of hospital leadership priorities and focus that drives IPC programs (3/x)

Viruses have funny ways of surprising us

H1N1 Swine Flu turned out less deadly than originally feared

Ebola—known to science for decades—caught the global community off guard in the 2014-16 epidemic

Predicting what'll happen with new #coronavirus is a fool's errand 1/
But @JenniferNuzzo @DrTomFrieden @NIAIDNews Anthony Fauci @SaadOmer3 @RonaldKlain and others humored me...

Spelling out the things to watch for that could cause this outbreak to get worse — or better.

Most felt we're heading for a pandemic — & @JenniferNuzzo increasingly believes we're already in one.

But what that'll look like is an open question.

For ex: if #2019nC0V spreads in a resource-poor country in Africa, we're in trouble. Or... maybe it'll behave differently.

I'm betting that in 2 years, #2019nC0V #coronavirus will have gone from epidemic to pandemic to endemic.… We'll be asking patients if they've had their #influenza #flushot & coronavirus #vaccine. Here's hoping #vaccine hesitancy/skepticism abates.
We can't keep a country on lockdown forever. #2019nCoV #coronavirus will eventually spread. We need to figure out how to get people to trust #vaccines STAT. #vaccineswork #2019nCoV #coronavirus #CoronavirusOutbreak Image
How we frame messages about #vaccination is really important.… Such messaging can backfire if too aggressive. Communication needs to be tailored to specific groups. #2019nCoV #coronavirus #CoronavirusOutbreak

Q: Are antibiotics effective in preventing and treating the new #coronavirus (2019-nCoV)?
A: No, antibiotics do not work against viruses, only bacteria.
The 2019-nC0V is a virus and, therefore, antibiotics should not be used as a means of prevention or treatment.
@WHOWPRO @WHOSEARO @WHO_Europe @pahowho @WHOEMRO @WHOAFRO Q: Does the new #coronavirus (2019-nC0V) affect older people, or are younger people also susceptible?
A: People of all ages can be infected by the virus.
Older people & those with pre-existing medical conditions appear to be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with the virus
@WHOWPRO @WHOSEARO @WHO_Europe @pahowho @WHOEMRO @WHOAFRO Q: Can pets at home spread the new #coronavirus (2019-nCoV)?
A: At present, there is no evidence that companion animals/pets such as dogs, cats can be infected with the virus.
However, it is always a good idea to wash your hands with soap and water after contact with pets
