If you needed another reason NOT to vote for @JoeBiden, then #ContactTracing and #MandatoryVaccine should be on your checklist. Also, any a**hat that doesn’t allow discussion shouldn’t be in the forum @vivek_murthy #Coward

On vas pas se mentir la #COVID19 est entrain de se redevelopper, plus vite dans certains territoires mais, le virus est présent sur tout le territoire.
La question est :la même équipe de commandement ne va t’elle pas reproduire les mêmes echecs?
Et ces échecs ont été nombreux 1
Mensonges, manipulations, manques masqués, scientismes, mise en dangers de soignants, pertes de chances de patients, la gestion de la crise de février à juin a été en tout point catastrophique...Nous avions alors en permanence 3 semaines de retard sur l’affection 2
Le confinement a en quelques sorte remis le compteur à zéro meme si celui ci n’a pas été exempt de fautes ( on se souvient de ceux que l’on envoyait travailler dans des transports en communs moins nombreux, sans masques). Au sortir de celui ci des mesures ont ete prises

Many of us talk about "the value of #digitalhealth" for improving health outcomes & improving the delivery of care, particularly during #COVID19.

I have concerns about evidence. But even more, I am concerned about equity. (A thread)
Despite lots of brouhaha about digital #contacttracing, it isn't effective, comes with major privacy concerns, and: "Too much reliance on automated contact tracing apps may also increase the risk of COVID-19 for vulnerable and digitally-excluded groups"
ucl.ac.uk/news/2020/aug/…
Another systemic review from @cochrane suggests that the digital tech can be most useful as an AUGMENTATION of human efforts. They caution, though, that ", the technology is largely unproven in real-world outbreak settings" particularly with at-risk pts.

As NHS trials new contact tracing app, new report by @AdaLovelaceInst & @traversepeople finds the public want to see evidence it works alongside independent oversight.

#COVID19Tech #ContactTracing
adalovelaceinstitute.org/our-work/covid…
Over three weeks in May 2020, the @AdaLovelaceInst, @traversepeople, @involveUK & @BangtheTable convened a rapid online discussion with 28 members of the public to explore attitudes to the use of #COVID19 related technologies for transitioning out of lockdown.
The 'mini public' debated circumstances under which the use of tech like the contact tracing app would be an appropriate part of the #COVID19 response.

Four major findings emerged 👇

The #COVID19 data problem in Switzerland. As ⁦@sbonhoeffer⁩ says, we need to analyse #ContactTracing data to look at where coronavirus is, but they still aren’t available... 1/n

derbund.ch/clubs-oder-fam…
The point is to have info to break transmission chains. Showing that families account for a large proportion of #COVID19 is one thing. But it doesn’t show the source of infection. Where did the family member get infected? #ContactTracing should joint the dots... 2/n
No identifiable #COVID19 source outside the family is a warning ⚠️ That means #CommunityTransmission not controlled. And that means we need to #TestTestTest to find infections, then #TestTraceIsolateQuarantine to stop transmission ...3/n

1/...Updated my #SMRT forecasts after Friday’s bullish t/s. My current valuation rises from 85p to 104p...double current shareprice. I’ve attempted to be conservative, modelling base case values across the board & attributing NIL to the new exciting @softcat agreement👇🏻
2/...#SMRT are operating in a sweet spot with their @swipedon & @spaceconnected visitor management solutions seeing increased demand due to the level of increased #ContactTracing policies worldwide👇🏻with their model offering Annual Recurring SaaS revenues

There are many #digital platforms that can help with #COVID19 case mgmt and contact tracing, but which one is right for your needs? Supported by @gatesfoundation, we assessed 9 key platforms to support decision-making for MoHs and donor agencies: bit.ly/covid19digital…
The 9 key platforms we looked at were: CommCare, Community Health Toolkit, DHIS2 Tracker, Go.Data, @getODK, @opensrp, @joinrapidpro, @SORMAS_open, and @WelTel. #COVID19 #pandemic #epitwitter #ContactTracing
We provide an overview of the 9 platforms and their relevant #COVID19 use cases. We also compare each platform on quality attributes (e.g. usability, scalability) so you can see what platforms has which features, and at what capacity!

1) #ContactTracing is simply the #PhoenixProgram #OperationHammer protocol - run thru #FusionCenters with collusion of #FBI #DOJ #InfraGard #DHS #FEMA #NSA #JTTFs.

Soon people who refuse to wear masks, who mingle in crowds (potential "super-spreaders"), who refuse to take ....
2) a vaccine, will be labeled as "Potential Domestic Threats" AKA Domestic #Terrorists and then put on watch-lists and set up for extrajudicial "#disruption" by FBI #FieldIntelligenceGroups #JTTFs #InfraGard #PrivateContractors #LARPs.
3) "DISRUPTION" includes the following:

A) Overt, repetitive stalking, harassment & assault
B) Smear Campaigns & #Zersetzung
C) Break-ins, theft & vandalism
D) #GasLighting
E) Cyber-harassment & hacking devices
F) Death threats

#SouthKorea has done a fantastic job with #ContactTracing This article analyzed reports for 59,073 contacts of 5,706 #COVID19 index patients. I believe it has important info for decision making related to #SchoolReopening

wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/26…
- Of 10,592 household contacts, 11.8% had #COVID19
- Of 48, 481 nonhousehold contact, 1.9% had #COVID19
- All contacts were monitored for an avg 9.9 days after #SARSCoV2 was detected
- In houses with index 10-19 y.o, 18.6% of contacts had #COVID19
Conclusion
- Rates were higher for contacts of children than adults
- Reports from other countries estimate secondary attack rate for close contact ~ 35%
-High infection rate within family, so use personal protective measures should be used at home to reduce risk of transmission

A thread on #ContactTracing for #COVID19. APHA @PublicHealth says 100,000 more contact tracers needed across U.S. for state and local health departments to stop the spread. 1/n #COVIDResponseCorps thenationshealth.aphapublications.org/content/50/5/1…
2. @DrTomFrieden's crucial indicators for #COVID19 control:
•Proportion of new cases with known source
•Proportion isolated within three days
•Proportion of cases among people in quarantine. An indicator of successful #ContactTracing.
foxnews.com/opinion/six-mo…
3. #ContactTracing in #MA significantly downscaled. Multi-million dollar effort with @PIH now has ~700 staffers, down from 1,900. Complaints: computer glitches, inadequate training, poor communication. Some towns focusing on their own, in-house efforts. bostonglobe.com/2020/07/08/met…

A thread on #ContactTracing for #COVID19. It's a race, but few states say how fast they’re running. @CDCgov guidance includes metrics - none of which are being publicly reported by most states. [A timely, comprehensive review.] 1/n washingtonpost.com/local/contact-…

Update on #ContactTracing for #COVID19 - a thread. Early signs of success from SF Bay Area. Many local counties are approaching goal of contacting 90% of the region’s positive cases, even as coronavirus cases spike across the state. @mikereidmd @SF_DPH sfchronicle.com/health/article…
2. San Francisco @SF_DPH data:
• % of Cases Reached for #ContactTracing over Prior Two Weeks – currently 82%, target 90+%
• % of Named Contacts Reached for Contact Tracing over the Prior Two Weeks – currently 85%, target 90+%
data.sfgov.org/stories/s/epem…
3. OTOH, lack of transparency makes #ContactTracing success hard to measure. Impossible to know whether Bay Area’s two largest counties have been successful because their health officials refuse to reveal how many people they do reach, and how quickly. mercurynews.com/2020/06/29/is-…

@nycHealthy took a beating in the @nytimes over the weekend: nytimes.com/2020/06/21/nyr… It's a bit more complicated. Got an inside (but on-the-record) look at NYC's #contacttracing data today, along with @mlipsitch, @T_Inglesby, @dsallentess, @Farzad_MD, @drJoshS, @trvrb & others.
Here's a link to where you can find NYC's #coronavirus #COVID #contacttracing data: nychealthandhospitals.org/test-and-trace…
No one is reporting this level of detail. We *need* this level of transparency to learn and do better.
Here are some of the challenges and lessons learned so far:
-- ~27% of contacts of infectious cases are kids.
-- Many people don't have working phones. It's a bit like working in global health... we gave people SIM cards & phones.
