The @IEJ_SA calls on govt to roll out a R70 bn emergency relief package over the next 3 months. This proposal aimed to cushion the economic effects of #Level4 restrictions prior to the outbreak of civil #Unrest sweeping SA in recent days. Although this… ImageImageImage
package isn't a direct response to the civil unrest, the proposals remain relevant. Level 4 restrictions in the #3rdWave, while necessary, will hurt workers, businesses, & livelihoods. Even when civil unrest abates, underlying socio-economic crises will remain, and ImageImage
require even more urgent government action. The rolling out of these relief measures would need to be adjusted, and expanded, to address the damage caused by the recent unrest. But inaction is not an option, and will cost the country dearly.

1/ #PrimeMinister & #HealthSecretary,

I just want to clarify how I can keep myself & my family safe from the #COVID19 surge in cases in our area?

I live & work in Newcastle, where cases are now well > 800 per 100,000, a real #COVIDHotSpot!

@BorisJohnson @sajidjavid
2/ How do you suggest advice to “proceed with caution” & “remain vigilant” will stop my #NHS colleagues & I from succumbing to #COVID19 as frontline HCWs regularly exposed to #coronavirus, now that 😷s are OPTIONAL in many places & virtually all restrictions will end in 7/7?
3/ Which exact bit of your roadmap/unlocking is still “following the science”?

The science that quite clearly says the best way to protect both health AND the economy PLUS prevent new #covidvariants arising is to KEEP COMMUNITY TRANSMISSION & CASES LOW?

1/ #JohnsonAndJavid - a grim tale of ego & ambition driven ideology combined w/ lethal ignorance & #WorldBeating serial incompetence. @MattHancock was just the warm up act.

#Covid19UK is a grotesque & callous population “cull” without care or compassion for those most affected.
2/ #WilfulNegligence no longer adequately describes their modus operandi.

Everything about this phase is DELIBERATE…PLANNED…CALCULATED.
3/ Every life lost to or affected by #COVID19 in this #3rdWave is in the “reasonable collateral damage” group, chosen by the most brutal & self-serving government of my lifetime.

#HerdImmunityByInfection a strategy enabled by complicit medical/scientific advisors & a woeful MSM.

[Thread] Fellow Gautengers,

The #3rdWave of #COVID19 in #Gauteng has been devastating😩

There are signs of hope, light at the end of the dark tunnel💡
Cases surpassed an inflection point and heading towards/possibly at a peak🗻

But we must remain vigilant🧐

Over past 7 days, > 78k #COVID19 cases reported in Gauteng, an avg of 11,266 per day, and up 6% week-on-week 📈

Case incidence rate at 73 new cases per 100k per day - highest infection rate seen by any province at any stage since the start of the pandemic ⚠️

We need to wait for and see a sustained decrease in cases for 7 days to confirm a peak has been reached, i.e. 7-day rolling average showing <= 0% change week-on-week 📉

But rate of increase of cases has certainly slowed passing an inflection point... 🤞

This graph shows a 7-day rolling average, so what we are seeing is not the "weekend effect" as the 7-day average takes that into account. This dip gives some hope!
However, it's too early to say if Gauteng has actually peaked - need to wait a few more days to confirm that..
Of course, we're not out of the woods either; the curve can turn upwards again at any time if there are any further spikes due to cluster outbreaks and possible superspreader events...
Also, the infection rate is still very high and risk remains high so need to remain vigilant...

Update from #Lahore #Covid_19 frontlines

Total 188 patients presented in emergency in last 24 hours and 14 patients shifted in ward.

6 patients LAMA (Left Against Medical Advice) from emergency and 8 patients received dead
almost all the patients who left or were received dead had typical features of COVID!!!!!

In Covid Isolation room of ER :
60 patients received with positive/suspected covid-19 in 24 hours
35 patients shifted to isolation ward and 14-15 patients referred to (affiliated) hospitals
If you are still leaving your house for non-essential tasks and ignoring SOPs you are partly responsible for these deaths and those which will soon follow.

Follow SOPs/wear your mask/keep your distance/wash your hands/get vaccinated

Federal Councillor @alain_berset on reopening, the #3rdWave, individual responsibility, and #LongCovid at the 12 March press conference:

All different scenarios for reopening modeled by the @SwissScience_TF and the ETHZ come to the same conclusion: We have to expect a 3rd wave.
This is not the best time for reopening, given the epidemiological situation.

But because we had an evolution of our strategy, it seems possible to us to consider openings despite this very unstable situation as long as we are extremely careful in our individual actions.
This is the first time that we reopen while the numbers go up. Normally we did the opposite.

Since the beginning of this year we're trying an evolution of that strategy, it is based on risks, which is why it's important that everybody participates.

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites" Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)… Image
People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.
(for one week, as of now)
