Thanks to @crimmin @scurran_uw & @PopAssocAmerica for hosting an enlightening #Demography & #COVID19 webinar today. I wanted to follow-up with some links to people & resources, some of which I didn't have time to call out in the talk...
First @ikashnitsky & @jm_aburto used beautiful #dataviz to map age structure & #COVID19 risk regionally in Europe:

1/12 How does #Demography impact #COVID19 deaths? In new pre-print, we illustrate how older population age structure can interact with high mortality rates at older ages to produce a large # of fatalities, as in Italy.… #poptwitter #epitwitter
2/12 #COVID19 fatalities are hitting older age groups hard. Case fatality rates for 80-90 currently 17.5% in Italy. While these numbers will hopefully be overestimates, the burden on older ages groups is frighteningly high.
3/12 With current concentration of deaths at older ages, COVID-19 deaths will hit older countries hard (Italy has 23% of population >65). Figure 1 compares Italy to South Korea (top) and Nigeria to Brazil (bottom) – two countries similar in size but different age distributions.

🥳 We are celebrating 1 year of @ECHO_ERCproject 🤩

Started on 1st of March 2019, the project lead by Alberto Palloni has as the main objective to reformulate and generalize standard theories of human #health and #mortality.

Today we launch the @ECHO_ERCproject online!🥳
ECHO is lead by Alberto Palloni & financed by the @ERC_Research #H2020 programme🇪🇺
The project started on March 2019 and will run until 2024, hosted at the Institute of Economy,Geography and Demography of @CCHS_CSIC #Madrid
@ERC_Research @CCHS_CSIC What we want to do?🧐
👉🏾 reformulate and generalize standard theories of human #health and #mortality
👉🏾propose new formal models and a systematic agenda to empirically test hypotheses that link developmental #biology, #epigenetics and adult human illness, #disability mortality.
@ERC_Research @CCHS_CSIC Together with Alberto Palloni, the team is joined by demographers, geographers and technicians:

The more, the better! @ECHO_ERCproject also collaborates with other scientists who provide knowledge and expertise to achieve the ambitious research programme

Saba Naqvi lets the Islamist cat out of the bag on CAA-NRC. Says this will increase the population of Hindus and reduce that of Muslims in India, particularly WB.

This means she knows that a significant no. of Pak-BD Muslims have been surreptitiously settled in India #Demography
Waris Pathan goes a step further and says Pak-BD Muslims should also to be incl in CAA.

Rahul Shivshankar must be complimented for saying what one has been all along: if Pak-BD Muslims are also to be taken in, why have Pak and BD at all?
@TimesNow #Demography 2/n
@TimesNow What's the problem if India becomes a Muslim majority country? A few months back, Arfa Sherwani asked this Q in a tweet later deleted.

This was not an innocent Q

Indian Islamists, like their soul mates in Pak, have evidently been working to turn India into Pak. 3/n
