1/ #Masks in Victorian hospitals- I hear many hospitals in Melb are masking all staff as per a DHHS directive last week. But, many aren't masking patients and visitors! This is a problem so obvious it doesn't warrant spelling out. Thoughts: #covid19aus #covid19vic
2/ Some services like Western Health are giving masks to patients/visitors, which is wise as they service #lockdown hotspots. Others probably would love to, but we have a #PPE shortage that we've improved but not fixed. But there is a potential solution:
3/ If we can't get a surgical mask/shield on every patient/visitor going into a metro melbourne hospital then should we consider cloth #masks? Cheap, reusable, people can supply their own. As effective? No. Contamination issues? Yes. But the aim is risk reduction, not elimination

Last week @RobinToal met @IndependentSAGE Chair and Founder, @Sir_David_King King to discuss the UK government response coronavirus pandemic and trust in science. With #PubsReopening in England, furthering the possibility of a #secondwave, we’re sharing the best bits. Thread ⬇️
What problems was @IndependentSage trying to solve?

The main point is that we put our advice into the government, as SAGE does, but we also put our advice into the public domain, and the object is to demonstrate how trust can be developed with the public.

#COVID19 #coronavirus
Producers know that if they approach members of government, including science advisors, they always get turned down. That's not the way to get the #trust of the public. If you want the public to behave in such a way that we manage the pandemic, you have to have their trust.

Forced evictions & demolitions during #Covid_19 in Pakistan.
As “Eviction” contradicts the “stay at home” policy, the United Nations has called on member states & governments at all levels to stop all migrations & evictions at this time of pendamic covid-19.
The recent effects of the #COVIDー19 are causing a lot of problems around the world, especially for people who have suffered significant loss of #income. In such a difficult and critical time, ‘#home’ has become a ‘#defense’ against the #coronavirusPandemic.
States around the world are ordering people to stay “at home” to prevent the spread of Covid-19. But at the same time, many states are at risk of being evicted, while at least 150 million people worldwide are homeless and living on temporary shelters or sidewalks.

EXCLUSIVE: The controversial new draft of India's main law for giving environment clearances—which the Modi Govt tried to push during #lockdown without proper public consultation—was designed to be a diluted version. This is how 2 ministers ensured that.
Briefly put: the specific terms of reference and objectives approved by the ministers for an expert committee working on drafting the new law for environment clearances resulted in some controversial provisions added to its draft, official documents show.
The story begins in April 2018 when Dr Harshvardhan, then environment minister, asked his officials to draft a 'structured ToR' or Terms of Reference for the Dr Satish Wate committee, which was looking at all technical aspects of implementation of EIA 2006

I concur with Sh Kanchan Gupta. China has clandestinely disrupted our lives. It has caused a huge upheaval and havoc in our routine life for no fault of us. Old and ailing people have got separated from their near and dear ones. A state of helplessness has been created. :
Due to the #Lockdown and subsequent no flights operational, am unable to fly back to India to be with my old mother. An air of uncertainty has crept in. No guarantee of meeting d ones whose eyes get glued to d opening door of their home/room expecting us 24x7. Curse be on China.
#CPC has not only snatched lives of thousands and thousands, but livelihoods of millions across the globe. And many a families in poor countries are already experiencing pecuniary difficulties leading to suicidal tendencies in family members irrespective of being young or old.

Ho un ricordo, di tanti anni fa, di un articolo di giornale. Parlava di #RosannaBenzi. Nel 1962 fu colpita da poliomielite a #14anni. Visse 29 anni all’#ospedale #SanMartino di #Genova dentro un polmone d’acciaio. Scrisse anche un ##libro: Il vizio di vivere.
Sembra una macchina di tortura, vero? Forse lo era. Di certo sarebbe una tortura per tutti coloro che non sopportano una #mascherina o per quelli che hanno sofferto il #lockdown Eppure in quella macchina hanno vissuto in tanti.
Anche tanti bambini ai quali la #poliomielite toglieva la capacità di respirare. Allora dentro il #polmonedacciaio si creavano delle differenze di pressione che permettevano al torace di espandersi e fare entrare e uscire aria

Mit einfacher Regression der Übersterblichkeit auf die Zahl der #COVID19 -Toten einer Region, kann man diverse #Corona-#Verschwörungsmythen sehr leicht widerlegen.
Idee von @KonProg
@Fischblog @zinkant @Psiramcom @hommer_ich
{UK; 21.03-12.06.}
-Die Zahl der Covid-Toten kann die Übersterblichkeit vollständig erklären (R^2).
-Für eine Region mit 0 Covid-Toten sagt das Modell eine UNTERsterblichkeit voraus (Intercept).
-Übersterblichkeit ist höher als Covid-Tote (Slope)
{Frankreich (11.03-02.06)} Daraus folgt:
1. Übersterblichkeit kommt nur in Regionen vor, die schwer von #Corona betroffen sind. Wenig betroffene Regionen haben keine auffällige Sterblichkeit. Übersterblichkeit kommt also von Covid und nicht vom #Lockdown, wie manche verbreiten.

I get sales from twitter but most of my High Ticket sales come from LinkedIn.

This is how I do it 👇👇👇

#lockdown #Dubai #ppstar
First things first, appearance matters a lot.

You will be surprised at the level of Influence your LinkedIn profile has to play on people taking you seriously on that platform.

A good header
Professional profile picture
And Kick-ass bio is a MUST!
Once you've successfully set up your bio you need to start reaching out to potential customers. Connect with people that are likely to want what you are selling.

Sales executives
And even CEO,CFO,COO (Those are the easiest to sell to 😂)

Another win for CfMM and our supporters! @TheSun has changed an incredibly misleading headline and opening paragraph, following complaints from our staff and volunteers. A huge thank you to all who have written in!
The initial headline wrongly implied that half of all imported UK #COVID19 cases were from Pakistan, and noted that 65K people returned to the UK from there since 1 March, implying a huge influx of cases prior to #lockdown.
A clear example of skewed information. In fact, the data (from @PHE_uk) only included cases since 4 June, & total imported cases from Pakistan were only 30.

Granny’s message on Work from Home

A youngster was attending a video a conference with his Manager and his Manager was upset over the background noises, the Youngster turned around and told his grandmother to keep quiet.

@kalpavirksha @KalpanaSubrama5

She walked towards the youngster to take a look into what he was doing, she saw a person on the Monitor & asked “who is he?”

The youngster muted his audio and video by stating that “he is my Manager”

@anexcommie @aparnasridhar7

She said “I want to talk to your Manager”, But the youngster denied by the time the Manager started pinging the youngster and the youngster unmuted to talk and his grandmother shouted “Manager I want to talk to you"

#CAexams Plea:

SC to shortly hear a plea seeking multiplicity of centres for partaking CA examinations to be held between July 29 & August 16 as well as a stay on the proposed "OPT OUT" scheme amid the ongoing pandemic situation.

Last week, a 3 Judge bench led by Khanwilkar J had sought response from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India @theicai wherein Senior Adv. Ramji Srinivasan had assured the Top Court about no “prejudice” being caused to any #CAexam aspirant.

Advocate AA Srivastava: I would like to apologise for some incorrect facts.
4.67 lac #CAaspirants is actually 3.46 this year.

Secondly, there are prayers for increase in #CAexam centres which have not been answered by the @theicai.

Respected @narendramodi @PMOIndia @HMOIndia @AmitShah @drharshvardhan , India imposed #Lockdown when hardly few cases were there, now with Unlock situation going out of hands.. Today Nearly 20 K cases.. last 5 days avg 16500 cases daily. Things r going out of hands..
Since #Lockdown 3 giving leverage to states have made situation worse. Few states who were otherwise doing good , because of stupidity by them , now they too r going West... e.g. Karnataka... ideally we should have a #Lockdown now .. if not more than minimum 3 weeks ...
If #Lockdown isn't done now , we would really be staring at biggest disaster. @narendramodi ji @PMOIndia you r known to take hard decisions, n now is the time to impose total #Lockdown.. situation getting worse each passing day.. @PIBHomeAffairs @MoHFW_INDIA guidelines of no use

1. DOCTOR Malcolm Kendrick on #Covid_19 lockdown policy:

"How many people aged 15 or under hve died of Covid-19? Four. The chance of dying from a lightning strike is one in 700,000. The chance of dying of Covid-19 in that age grp is one in 3.5million. & we locked them all down"
2. "Even among the 15- to 44-year-olds, the death rate is very low and the vast majority of deaths have been people who had significant underlying health conditions. We locked them down as well."

#Covid_19 #Lockdown
3. "We locked down population that had virtually zero risk of getting any serious problems from the disease, and then spread it wildly among the highly vulnerable age group. If you had written a plan for making a complete bollocks of things you would have come up with this one."

#Policebrutality and impunity in India: TW
P Jayaraj & his son Bennix were arrested for violating #lockdown rules. They were brutally tortured & killed in police custody. The details of their torture are horrifying.
This was followed by FIR cover up, doctor's deliberate suppression of health condition, and magistrate B Saravanan's remand orders without physically seeing the Jayaraj and Fenix.
"More than 1,000 people of Sathankulam town in Tamil Nadu’s Thoothukudi district...all trade union bodies, various political outfits, activists, and the local public staged protests in various parts of the town."…
