⚠️The number of daily #COVID19 deaths in the US now exceeds *all* other countries (#China not accurate).

Sadly, daily #coronavirus deaths will continue to rise, until ~2 weeks AFTER we #FlattenTheCurve of new cases.

The next 3-5 weeks will be brutal.

A glimmer of good news: the curve of the total number of US #coronavirus deaths may be starting to flatten (yesterday's below). Let's hope that trend continues.🙏🏼

Unfortunately, we remain on track have more deaths than #Italy or #Spain.

🤞🏼Another glimmer of hope: new daily #coronavirus cases in the US are still rising but the curve *appears* to be starting to flatten. Sadly, we are still setting the global pace (#China not accurate).

Countries with #lockdowns were able to #FlattenTheCurve BEFORE us.

The next 4-6 weeks will be hell.
US #coronavirus death continue to DOUBLE every 3 days, with no signs of slowing.

@realDonaldTrump *still* hasn't ordered a nationwide #lockdown, and our death toll is SKYROCKETING.

INACTION = more people DIE.🤬
New daily #coronavirus cases in the US continue to ACCELERATE (~30,000 today), setting the global pace, albeit #China not accurate.

Dr Shiva Ayyadurai on Covid19 and how the media/govt is not giving good advice to the public.
Skip the intro and go to about 5.00 where the interviewer puts his first question to Dr Shiva.
Dr Shiva talks about what viruses are, what viruses do, how the human body responds to viruses, downsides of vaccinations and how science has become infiltrated (and corrupted) by massive amounts of corporate money.

⚠️#COVID19 deaths in #NYC continue to surge faster than *any* place on Earth, more than DOUBLING every 2 days.

#Michigan now a major US #coronavirus hot zone, followed by NJ and #Louisiana.

As I've warned, the next 4-6 weeks will be hell.

The number of new #coronavirus cases in the US continues to explode exponentially with no sign of slowing.

Each day brings more new #COVID19 cases than the prior day, now >20,000 new cases a day – the most in the world.😥

#Spain and #Italy have flattened the curve.

Total US #COVID19 cases continue to set the record and now represent *25% of ALL #coronavirus cases worldwide* (albeit #China doesn't report accurately).

@realDonaldTrump *still* hasn't ordered nationwide #lockdown.

New cases will continue to explode for at least 2-3 weeks.

#Covid19 lessons #Italy has learned that can be useful for other countries. I am not an expert; this thread is my own summary of what I have learned from Italian scientists, mayors & authorities. My @CBCNews article on the same topic:…
Italy lesson #1 – Don’t wait for the virus to invade your last line of defence -hospitals- when people are already very sick. Health professionals should go out into communities and 'chase' (test, track & treat) the virus before it becomes widespread.
Italy lesson #2 – When sick people need emergency care, direct them to an outside field hospital or physically distant, separate facility. Sick people should not enter regular hospitals. It risks spreading the virus to healthcare workers and other non-infected patients

1️⃣ #Hazem_Beblawy said "Experience has proven that ruling by referendum on an ongoing basis is the easiest way to consolidate the powers of an authoritarian ruler" and #Ibn_Khaldun said "If the ruler deals with trade then we'll got a corrupted policy and a corrupted trade",
2️⃣ Both attributes are now followed by Turkish President @RTErdogan This aid was sent by #Turkey 🇹🇷 oh pardoned its by Erdogan to #Italy 🇮🇹 All countries ruled by dictatorships believe that mask diplomacy will provide a presence among the powers!!! How fragile are their ideas!!!

#coronavirus test kits were ALREADY contaminated with #COVID19.
Reported by multiple sites at the begining of March.

All the test kits came from the same the @CDCgov

The test kits were recalled and the media blamed @realDonaldTrump
Signed into law, was a bill that made it mandatory for virus test kits to be approved by the @US_FDA before doctors could use them.

Even if doctors had the training and equipment needed.

The @FDA_Drug_Info requires extensive trial periods and large test samples.
Again the #FakeNewsMedia and the usual suspects took delight in blaming @realDonaldTrump
for the delay of test kits.
When the truth is @POTUS
removed those restraints and sped up testing.
@ABC @CNNPolitics @MSNBC and the rest of the MSM has been doing nothing but fear mongering

⚠️#COVID19 deaths in #NYC continue to skyrocket faster than *anywhere* else globally.

#Coronavirus deaths also surging in #Michigan, NJ, and #Louisiana.

#CA and #FL are earlier in their outbreaks, so time and TESTING will tell.

The next 4-6 weeks will be hell.

Daily #COVID19 death tolls in the US and UK are *accelerating* in a straight line on a log-scale chart👉🏼deaths are still increasing EXPONENTIALLY.

All other countries had begun slowing the rate of increase in deaths by now.

The US *still* has NOT locked down nationwide.🤬
Daily #COVID19 death tolls are finally flattening in #Italy and #Spain: each new day has FEWER deaths.

In the US (not locked down), the #coronavirus death toll is ACCELERATING: each new day has MORE dead than the last, and the rate of increase is RISING.

Diary from Italy, 1 April 2020 - on the need for the EU 27 to get their act together before it is too late. Includes English version of @CarloCalenda's letter to @faznet Thread. Full diary:…
Social unrest is growing in #Italy Italy as people are worrying not simply about catching the #coronavirus coronavirus but about running out of food and money particularly in the poorer southern regions of the country.
The 27 countries of the European Union remain split and the European Commission has never seemed less effective. Europe risks a division that will be irreparable. And Italians are rightly exasperated with countries that seem to favour the economic over the human, wealth over life

There are two controversial issues around the #eurobond debate that are technical but potentially important. A) is the #ESM joint European debt, ie. fully mutual? B) is it a problem for Italy that the #ESM would be senior? /thread
Is the #ESM joint debt? The ESM is backed by capital, small part paid-in, larger part ‘callable’. The total capital is €705 billion, but lending is limited to €500 billion. /2
So there is a €205 billion safety margin, which is needed for the #ESM to reach a very high rating (= low funding costs on markets). But that does not make it a mutual European bond. /3

#COVID19 lockdowns and quarantines seem to be reducing crime rates outside.

But inside - at home - increased rates of domestic abuse are a reminder of another kind of global pandemic: violence against women and children.

Home has never been safe for everyone. #coronavirus
Crime drops in lockdown, domestic violence risk climbs… #COVID19 #coronavirus
Reported domestic violence cases jumped 30% during lockdown in #France.

In #Paris alone, they were up 36%.

THREAD. A week ago I wrote this on the contribution that #migrants and #refugees make to the response to #coronavirus. Since then I have been collecting information on HOW this happens in different countries to learn for the future.
#migration #COVID19…
At @ODIdev we will be tracking and analysing these actions/innovations, for now here is an overview

First up the #USA where #NY state takes action allowing qualified graduates of foreign medical schools to contribute to the #Covid_19 emergency response…
Still in the #USA, the State Department is on the lookout for medical professionals abroad willing to work in the #US. As long as they have a valid visa....mhh.....🙄

1.1/ China's empathy with #Italy is political hypocrisy since the face mask diplomacy is just part of China's Overseas Propaganda campaign, which includes rewriting history, obscuring the source of the virus, painting China as a global hero by delivering medical aids abroad.
1.2/ More importantly, praising the superiority of China over the western liberal democracies. This narrative is tightly connected to President Xi Jinping's personality cult, as his authority has been deeply challenged since the outbreak.
1.3/ To retain his reputation and erase China's bad image, state-run media in China have been projecting China as the global hero with extreme nationalist colour in the past few weeks. Therefore, helping Italy is just part of a bigger plan.

#CoronaVirusUpdate from #Italy for March 27 2020. Bittersweet news. Contagion rate is declining, even though death count is rising. Resist panic. Total +#covid19 cases = 86,498, of which 66,414 infected (+4,401 = +7.2%) 10,950 recovered and 9.134 deaths (+969). /1
Death rate reflects 15-20 days ago, while new #coronavirus contagion rate = current cases. That's why infection rate is (for me) is more reliable indicator than death rate. Infection rate reflects slowdown due to lockdown. Deaths still coming in from pre-lockdown contagion. /2
Shocking, 969 people in one day. I knew one of them. But must stay focused. Top experts tell us the sacrifice, the #stayhome measures to contain #covid19 are working. I see it in the models I am monitoring. #Mattarella confirmed in his heartwarming speech to the nation. / 3

⚠️#COVID19 deaths continue to surge in the U.S. as more #coronavirus testing comes online and viral spread continues to accelerate.

#Spain and #France locked down after ~200 deaths; #Italy after 800.

The US has >1,500 deaths and has NOT locked down.

New York and Catalonia (#Spain) have the fastest rise in #COVID19 deaths. #Louisiana (New Orleans) and south #Florida are emerging as new #coronavirus "hot zones," surpassing #WA.

#CA has relatively little testing but is also seeing a surge in deaths.

NATIONWIDE #LockdownNow‼️
⚠️#Coronavirus cases in the U.S. are now higher than *any* other country at the same point in its outbreak, with new cases DOUBLING nearly *every 2 days*.

Yet the U.S. still has NOT locked down.🤬

1/6 We now have a snapshot of the severity of #COVID19 in 🇨🇦, where 6.1% of all cases require hospitalization, 2.6% of all cases are critically ill needing ICU care and 1% of cases have been fatal. #ProtectTheVulnerable #FlattentheCurve #PlanktheCurve
2/6 🇨🇦’s 1% case fatality rate means our healthcare system is not currently overwhelmed. But we can further reduce fatalities by preventing #COVID19 in vulnerable populations like residents in long-term care. #ProtectTheVulnerable
3/6 The seriousness of #COVID19 cannot be overstated. Older adults and those with medical conditions are at highest risk BUT younger people are not immune. #FlattentheCurve #PlanktheCurve #StayHomeSavesLives

The tragic effects of the #COVIDー19 outbreak in #Italy are showing up in demographic statistics. Weekly mortality rates for age groups 65-74, 75-84 and 85+ went above the 95% reference range during the week of March 8-14. Baseline is the average mortality rate in the past 5 yrs.
These figures are based on a sample of 19 large Italian cities, which is representative of the whole population, but it does not include Bergamo which is one of the most affected cities by #COVIDー19
Sadly, as we've already seen the numbers of the past weeks, in the next updates, I expect these curves to skyrocket. To read the most recent version of the report take a look here:… h/t @gianlucac1
