A prefeita de #Atlanta, Keisha Lance Bottoms, declarou:

"Isso não é um protesto. Isso não está no espírito de Martin Luther King Jr. Isso é um caos. Um protesto tem um propósito. Quando o Dr. King foi assassinado, nós não fizemos isso na nossa cidade."

Os jornalistas da CNN passaram o dia todo justificando os atos de vandalismo registrados em protestos nos #EUA pela morte de George Floyd.

O apoio aos baderneiros não foi suficiente para impedir que a sede em #Atlanta fosse depredada.

Confira no YouTube:
Para o delírio da multidão, um baderneiro levou a bandeira do movimento de extrema-esquerda "Black Lives Matter" para o topo do logo gigante da CNN, localizado na parte exterior da sede em #Atlanta, nos #EUA.

I asked my #Georgia @sendavidperdue to oppose nomination of Cory Wilson to 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. I wrote:

Judge Wilson is hostile to government-provided healthcare. He doesn't defend the Voting Rights Act and allows burdensome voter ID laws to take effect. He opposes
the human rights of gays and lesbians. He doesn't allow restrictions on firearms. He allows restrictions on abortion. His public statements are replete with ad hominem partisan attacks.
Text "Wilson" to 21333 or dial 312-647-2040 to get connected with your senators to make your opposition to this nomination known!

New National Security Strategy of #Poland is quite a solid and healthy document, with an adequate understanding of the current and near-future threats. it identifies the "neo-imperial policy" of #Russia as the most serious threat, "pursued also by means of military force". 1/13
2/13 It warns of an outbreak of a conflict "originating from a violent escalation as a result of an incident" due to the #Russia/n "below the threshold of war" activities that could provoke such a conflict, including an international one.
3/13 The document explicitly highlights the increase in internal tensions within the #EU/#NATO as well as actions undertaken by external entities as a "noticeable risk of undermining the coherence of the positions and actions of the member states of NATO and the EU".

Killing of #AhmaudArbery thrust spotlight on racism in #Georgia + now @afainatl exposes how local @GaRepublicans including elected official @MatthewGurtler, has been meeting + organizing with "American Patriot USA," run by violent neo-Nazi, Chester Doles. itsgoingdown.org/patriot-group-…
In leaked videos, we see here as elected Republican and State House Representative for District 8, Matthew Gurtler speaks in mid-March of 2002 in front of American Patriots USA, which is led by long time neo-Nazi and former KKK members, Chester Doles.
Chester Doles has spent decades being involved in the white supremacist movement. While he was a member of the Ku-Klux-Klan, he was arrested and sent to prison in the early 1990s for a racial attack on an African-American man. baltimoresun.com/news/bs-xpm-19…

Ahmaud Arbery, a Black man, was gunned down in Feb. by white men in GA, after neighbors said they thought he was a burglar. His family says he was jogging. Now, there's video of what the men claimed was a "citizen's arrest" that some say looks like murder.

Live tracker: How many coronavirus cases have been reported?
Using data from the COVID Tracking Project, we’re following how each state is responding to Covid-19.

Scroll down to the photo of the States in this article & then click on the State.

Iowa 3,159 positives on Monday. And now today Wednesday, 3748 positives, Iowa has a population of 3.18 million.
Georgia on Monday had 18,947 positives, today they have 20,740. Georgia has a population of 10.6 million.

But they have opened up their stay at home orders. Salons, restaurants, tattoo parlors now open. Expect these numbers to go way up. #Georgia #Georgians #COVID19

"Totally misquoted" says @POTUS of @CDCDirector comment in @washingtonpost. "The headline was ridiculous."
"I really do think it's important to clarify this," says @CDCDirector. "I didn't say this was going to worse" but rather that #COVID19 combined with influenza "would be more complicated."
"He was misquoted," says @POTUS, deflecting questions for @CDCDirector.

Thank you for all the kind messages of support and healing. I have been very sick since last week. I kept telling myself it was just really bad allergies. It was not. I am now in #quarantine. The Wife is asymptomatic, which is great, TG.
#CoronavirusPandemic
I have been pretty out of it since Thursday. I feel like I have been run over by a convoy of trucks. The fever and pain are the worst. Sunday night I thought I would just die from the fever--I was just burning up. The other thing is inability to concentrate. It's intense.
So no matter what your governor tells you (#Georgia REALLY should have elected Stacey Abrams), #StayAtHome You do not want to get sick, you do not want to make anyone else sick. I just wanted to let folks know I am still alive. Thanks again for your support.

Thread w/updates of NYS, US, & some places around the world. TL; DR - Ohio looks bad; NYS MUCH better; US MAY (or may not..) be plateauing; Italy & Spain look better each day, but it is a long slog. And I am still convinced that US death toll from THIS wave is 100K+
Even with lower testing (16.3K), NYS had lowest positive rate in 4 weeks at 29.0%. Deaths are dropping. Case finding is much lower. Expect a rebound after the weekend, but all signs are favorable. @David_EatonJr
While the northeastern epicenter (NYS, NJ, CT, MA) are starting to come off their cliff (collectively), there is less evidence of that for the remainder of the country (collectively). Today is higher than last monday for US ex those states. Need more days to know.

1. A tale of 2 #COVID19 case maps:

Left: Shows total cases (bigger circles, more cases) arcgis.com/apps/opsdashbo…

Right: Shows cases per 10,000 residents. Much easier to see very concerning #rural outbreaks in ID, LA, CO, ID
geodacenter.github.io/covid/map.html#

thread
2. Focusing on #COVID19 cases per 10,000 people helps identify locations that are likely going to exceed local hospital capabilities very quickly. See rank list here. Blaine, ID (tourist ski area) has the highest infection rate in the country

nytimes.com/interactive/20…
3. Many hospitals in #rural areas have very small ICUs if they have ICUs at all and limited capacity. See this thread from a small community hospital in #Louisiana overwhelmed by #COVID19

Hard to keep up w/ all hotspots around the world & separate signal from noise. Few observations from last 24 hrs.

TL; DR - Turkey, Russia, Philippines, Louisiana, Texas, Georgia, Florida, Indiana, California should draw our attention.

Testing, Testing, Testing. 1/x
Turkey has grown their cases by 50% in last 48 hours. They are one of the fastest growing (#Covid19) large countries and straddle a geopolitically sensitive region. 2/x

washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/…
#Russia & the #Philippines have suddenly cropped up w/substantial growth & both look to be starting from behind in terms of testing. They are following a familiar pattern and they start out with no particular advantage. And this doesn't help matters. nypost.com/2020/03/31/rus… 3/x

⚠️#COVID19 death toll in #NYC continues to skyrocket and is *more than doubling* every 2 days.

Sadly, deaths now surging in #Michigan, NJ, and #Louisiana, along with #California and #Florida (*still NOT locked down), as predicted.

NATIONWIDE #LockdownNow‼️

📸@jburnmurdoch @FT
Overall #COVID19 death toll in the US is *DOUBLING every 3 days*.

Multiple states, including #Florida with a high % older high-risk population, *still* have NOT locked down.

As outbreaks continue to flare across the US, our #coronavirus death toll could accelerate even more.😰
Number of #coronavirus cases in the US are SKYROCKETING faster than *any* country at the same point in the outbreak and are *DOUBLING ~2.5 days*.

Yet we *still* have NOT locked down.🤬

#Georgia @GovKemp interview on @TheMeansReport illuminated Republican talking points for future elections: If it weren't for irresponsible residents, the #COVID19GA #pandemic wouldn't have been so bad. wjbf.com/top-stories/we… I can see ads showing non-white people allegedly doing
something which may have spread the disease. Direct the voters' anger at the tens of thousands of dead & 100s of thousands who suffered at "bad" people instead of the do-nothing, self-serving policies of the politicians who had the means to take effective action but instead were
either too busy making political calculations, protecting their stock portfolios long enough to sell off theirs & lining up sweetheart deals for needed medical supplies & procedures or too ideologically committed to private property or a twisted version of American

1/5 #Georgia opened a new hospital very close to the line of separation with #Abkhazia. A photo taken months ago during one of my trips to the area.

Should be a huge help to those living in Samegrelo, which has the biggest population of displaced people in the country.
2/5 Potentially could also help those inside the conflict zone, especially during #COVID19 crisis.

So far no registered cases in #Abkhazia. The region made a good use of WHO specialists: Sukhumi adopted proposed plan and started implementation.
3/5 Some of my Abkhaz friends surprised people follow rules, despite a long mass record of disobedience to the local police and other branches of df government.

But not all perfect. During the weekend some still hosted huge weddings. No one was arrested, but made many angry.

Thread on #Georgia @GaDPH Mar 13 Interim Guidance for Clinicians Evaluating, Reporting, and Requesting Diagnostic Testing for Possible #COVID19 Cases #coronavirus #publichealth. Original document available at dph.georgia.gov/document/docum…. I've archived it here drive.google.com/open?id=1QKgAt…
Let me preface this by saying I have no medical training or special knowledge. I urge those who can to correct anything I get wrong here.

My main concern is that it remains difficult to get #COVID19 testing. People who are reluctant to take other #publichealth measures such as
social isolation frequently say things like "There are no confirmed cases in our area." IMO, that's true because too few people have been tested. So let's examine the document.
