1/30 In two forthcoming pieces, I examine #Japan's response to the #COVID19 #coronavirus #pandemic. I'll summarize the main non-theoretical points here (long thread alert!).
2/30 #Japan’s figures have always looked good compared to many other countries, which initially led to suspicion that the ‘real’ numbers of #COVID19 #coronavirus infections & death were being played down.
3/30 #Tokyo Metropolitan Government at least has now released full #COVID19 figures, including general death rates, seeming to put this argument to rest (but these figures are also now being challenged).…

Great opinion piece explaining why the comparison of #covid19 and #influenza mortality rates are flawed in many ways by @jeremyfaust (1)

THREAD:… Image
Influenza deaths are commonly estimated, whereas #covid19 deaths are counted. Would be more correct to compare counted #covid19 deaths to counted #influenza deaths. (2) Image
The reported number of counted deaths due to #covid19 during week ending April 14 was 14,478. The mean counted number of #influenza deaths during peak weeks of last 7 seasons was 752.4 on average. That‘s a 20.5-fold increase! (4) Image

1/ Given my interactions with @ASlavitt and @jeremyfaust yesterday, I decided to make a compiled list of data on asymptomatic transmission. This is not complete, but the most striking data I have seen on #COVID19 and #SARSCoV2 worldwide.
2/ A nice summary published in @TIME yesterday:

Covert coronavirus infections could be seeding new outbreaks…

Thread/ Lousiana #COVID19 Yesterday I spoke with healthcare workers in Chicago, New Orleans, Iowa, and NYC - public health officials, nurses, paramedics, medical assistants all increasingly alarmed at the lack of response to #COVID19 and startling lack of protocols in place
This is about #NOLA my home for several years my daughter attended school in the French Quarter in the days before Katrina and disaster tourism and the city caring more about infrastructure for the Superbowl than the cracking concrete in the Lower 9th Ward…

🚨BREAKING: #GrandPrincess cruise ship appears to be a new #coronavirus “hot zone.”

21 passengers report having #COVID19 symptoms after an ex-passenger just DIED in #California from a #coronavirus infection likely acquired onboard the ship.

A former passenger on the #GrandPrincess DIED today in #California after getting infected with #coronavirus onboard the ship.

Now, 21 NEW passengers on the same ship report having #COVID19 symptoms.😳

The #GrandPrincess planned to dock in San Francisco, but Gov @GavinNewsom delayed it, as 21 passengers/crew developed #COVID19 symptoms.

The ship has 2,600 guests + 1,150 crew.

They *must* be evacuated NOW under quarantine.

The longer they remain, the MORE infected.🚨

🚨Whistleblower says @HHSGov sent >12 workers to receive Americans evacuated from #Wuhan China—#CoronavirusOutbreak epicenter—WITHOUT proper training for infection control or appropriate protective gear.

Workers were NOT tested for #COVID19.

😱HHS workers were potentially exposed to #coronavirus via “face-to-face contact with returning passengers” from the #coronavirus hot-zone #DiamondPrincess.

Meanwhile, @CDCgov personell wore “full gown, gloves and hazmat attire.”

🔥~14 HHS personnel were sent to March Air Force base in Riverside County CA, and ~13 were sent to Travis Air Force in **Solano County, CA** where the first “community spread” of #coronavirus was recently reported.

Team Trump’s negligence led to this.🤬

Daily media briefing on #COVID19 with @DrTedros…
@DrTedros "As of 6am GVA time this morning, #China has reported a total of 75,567 cases of #COVID19 to WHO, including 2,239 deaths.

In the past 24 hours, 🇨🇳 has reported 892 new confirmed cases and 118 deaths"-@DrTedros #coronavirus
@DrTedros "The significant 📉 in confirmed cases is partly due to another change in the way 🇨🇳 reports numbers.
Last week 🇨🇳 started reporting clinically-diagnosed cases, in addition to lab-confirmed cases. They have now switched back to reporting suspected & lab-confirmed cases"-@DrTedros

Daily @WHO presser on #COVID19 starts with update of the numbers (as of 6 am Geneva time).

74675 cases, 2121 deaths

Outside China:
1076 cases in 26 countries, 7 deaths
@WHO Data from China continues to show a decline in confirmed new cases, says @DrTedros. Says WHO is “encouraged” by the trend, but no time for complacency. (I would add that the situation outside China looks more concerning by the day.)
@WHO @DrTedros More than half the #COVID19 cases outside China are passengers from #DiamondPrincess, @DrTedros points out. First passengers have disembarked, he says (if: negative test, no symptoms and no contact with confirmed case in past 14 days).

@DrTedros "I’d like to start today by talking not about #COVID19, but about #Syria.
Since the 1st of December, dozens of health facilities have suspended services in the Idleb & Aleppo areas. Out of nearly 550 health facilities in northwest Syria, only about half are operational"-@DrTedros
@DrTedros "2 attacks on health facilities took place yesterday afternoon, on 2 separate hospitals in Aleppo. Luckily, there were no casualties.

We repeat: health facilities & #healthworkers are #NotATarget in conflict & attacks on health are a breach of international law"-@DrTedros

They have landed and were warmly welcomed in Texas. They have comfortable accommodations with 2 windows! They can also walk outside, I’m sure with limitations but it’s nice. #DiamondPrincess
They still need to be tested. Hopefully they are currently sleeping, it was an arduous trip back. 8 of the new 14 cases that flew home were on their plane & kept behind a plastic barrier, but they were definitely on their buses. #DiamondPrincess
Still, there were 99 new cases diagnosed in the ship yesterday so even if they do end up getting it we now trust that they are in the best hands w/no ocean/language barrier. 14 more days, maybe more tbd. #DiamondPrincess

It’s 6:30am in Japan on Monday morning. US #DiamondPrincess passengers have been awake all night for the evacuation process. A lot of waiting but finally got confirmation that they are taking off.
Still unclear about their destination, it now looks like Lackland AFB in Texas. The flight will not be pleasant, it’s a converted 747 & they were told to dress as warmly as possible & to wear two pairs of socks. #DiamondPrincess
This is MAYBE the 1/2 way mark in this ordeal, praying they test negative and just continue their quarantine in this safer space. #DiamondPrincess

Ok, here's the latest for my parents on the #DiamondPrincess:
Early removal is likely just for those 80+ and/or those with a pre-existing medical condition that have a negative test result. @SpeakerPelosi @StateDept @ACSTokyo
Our focus is now to keep positive vibes going that they continue to stay healthy & ensure a plan is in place to get them home safely. When I say safely I mean for them, for the general public, & for those who transport them. #DiamondPrincess @SpeakerPelosi @StateDept @ACSTokyo
If they get to 2/19 w/out symptoms or a + test they should be safe but w/so many cases on #DiamondPrincess, knowing they have to exit through the boat it seems chance of exposure would still exist, + the 2wk incubation period may be longer. @SpeakerPelosi @StateDept @ACSTokyo

Yesterday 44 new cases were identified. Mom and Dad still feel fine (see the video)....this really is a fucking surreal experience. (You all know I cuss and I feel like now certainly warrants it). #DiamondPrincess
The Japanese Government said they were going to start allowing anyone 80+ &/or people with an underlying health condition who test negative to leave #DiamondPrincess to continue the quarantine at a land-based Japanese facility.
This is optional. This may extend to passengers in internal cabins. This will likely be a process and the option may not be extended to my parents before the quarantine end date of 2/19. #DiamondPrincess

Yesterday there were 38 new cases. Mom and Dad are still feeling fine and are staying optimistic. It sounds like they are getting more outside time which is nice. #DiamondPrincess
I've been in touch with @MikeLevinCA's awesome staff who have assured me that they are trying to figure out a solution for #DiamondPrincess.
Our message has been received loud and clear & I so appreciate everyone's outreach. I don't think more is needed. We've done everything we can at this point. #DiamondPrincess

And of 48 new cases confirmed outside #China yesterday, 40 were on board the #DiamondPrincess cruise ship quarantined in Yokohama.
@DrTedros .@DrTedros mentions the plight of the Westerdam cruise ship, which will soon dock in Sihanoukville. "Based on what we have been told, there are no suspected or confirmed cases of #COVID19 on board”. Tedros: "Outbreaks can bring out the best & worst in people."

@DrTedros 🚨 "The Emergency Committee on the #Ebola has advised that the outbreak in #DRC continues to be a public health emergency of international concern, and I have accepted that advice"-@DrTedros
@DrTedros "As I said yesterday, as long as there is a single case of #Ebola in an area as insecure & unstable as eastern #DRC, the potential remains for a much larger epidemic.

WHO’s risk assessment is that the risk of spread is high nationally & regionally & low globally"-@DrTedros
