Dangerous #covid19 disinformation in Canada & elsewhere. A thread. #cdnpoli #CovidCanada
Let’s begin with AIER, The American Institute For Economic Research. #AIER is a libertarian “think tank”, largely funded by the Koch Network. AIER is behind such large scale propaganda offensives as “The Great Barrington Declaration”. A thoroughly debunked piece of disinformation
AIER disinformation has been so successful & pervasive that even formerly respected authors peddle their nonsense.
Incidentally, Naomi Wolfe happens to be a “Visiting Senior Fellow” at #AIER. #cdnpoli #COVID19 #COVIDdisinformation

COVID-19 Modeling.

Is this forecast realistic in spite we are entering into the 2nd half of the Flu Season Cycle?

And the "failure" of Linear analysis.

8-Chart Thread.

#COVIDー19 #COVID #COVIDCanada
Linear chart of Canada COVID-19. I want to point how "misleading" this chart is. It does not "capture" the true ROC, as there is an equal distance between the data; each data price change on the chart is represented by the same vertical distance or movement up the scale.
Why use a logarithmic scale? Because it accurately displays trends. The scale is essential for timely and accurate use of trendline analysis movement; prices tend to accelerate in the direction of the prevailing trend; they rise faster at the end of a rising trend.

It seems Air Canada has managed to convince the federal government to employ rapid testing as an opt out of quarantine on the basis of preliminary results from a massively flawed study.

Seems like a bad idea. @BillBlair @marcomendicino @celliottability @IrfanDhalla

1/n
First, Australia and New Zealand remain the gold standards for the “Western world” in regards to COVID response. Both had mandatory hotel (not home w/relatives) quarantine at port of arrival, before going anywhere, mandatory testing AND drastically reduced int’l flights. 2/n
Australia diverted ALL international flights out of Victoria when Melbourne’s numbers skyrocketed in 2nd wave and cut total international arrivals by 40% concurrent with other restrictions. This is what happened after. 3/n

Alberta and BC are flattening. Skipped weekend reported lumped into Monday accounts for the spikes (3 day totals) but rolling weekly true trend point is now in better focus.
Quebec is a league of its own, the regions are reporting cases rates higher than the rest of the country.
