Letter to the editor titled "Freedom to Not Wear A Mask"
Welcome to the Freedom Cafe. We trust you to make your own choices if you want to wear a face mask. In the same spirit of individual liberty, we allow our staff to make their own choices about the safety procedures they prefer to follow as they prepare and serve your food.
We encourage employees to wash their hands after using the bathroom. We understand that some people may be allergic to certain soaps or may simply prefer not to wash their hands. It is not our place to tell them what to do.

Scam phone call tonight at 11.25pm claiming to be a police officer at Stornoway Police Station with reports of me not wearing a mask! Very aggressive and pushy, threatening manner. Worried for elderly or vulnerable who might end up terrified by these things. @WIslesPolice
Claiming to be PC Alan MacDonald, I was told their was a report I had been in shops without a mask. I was then demanded to list what shops I had been in in the last 7 days so they could check CCTV. The first thing I did was question the timing of the phone call, that it was...
...very unusual to phone about something so mundane at a late hour. He said he's been phoning people all day and night so was just getting round to me. I asked him for his badge number but he wouldn't give it. He said I could phone Sty police station and ask to speak to him...

If everyone had worn a mask since March, tens of thousands of Americans might be alive.…
President Donald J. Trump bears direct responsibility for that, as well as the absence of the testing and contact tracing capacity we must have to reopen safely.…
Why have European and Asian counties been able to suppress this pandemic while the USA has not?

The public health playbook for a pandemic is not a secret: universal masks, robust, rapid testing, contact tracing, & supported isolation & treatment — quarantine — for infections. Image

Had some great discussions on Clubhouse on making a real impact on moving mask-resistors to mask acceptance. Arguing and forcing alone aren’t going to get it done. Now that masks have become a political issue vs. solely a health issue, different techniques are needed.
Seems the resistors' arguments are: "against my liberties, it’s a liberal conspiracy, Trump admin not wearing/endorsing, not believing/ acknowledging the science, believing "a life with an inconvenience like this is no life at all, so putting others at risk is worth it", etc.
In addition to countering or converting those arguments, there's an opportunity to better convey the very real economic impact that will continue as cases continue to rage through our communities. The economy is not a door that people just walk through if it's "open".

Plotting the moving average of new cases and new deaths due to #COVID19

#Gujarat again has a higher CFR. #Maharashtra also shows no signs of slowdown and CFR higher than the national ratio

The next 12 most affected states.

CFR is under control for most of these which is a good sign.

#Telangana has the highest CFR amongst these followed by #Punjab

This must be said clearly: Masks are incredibly important. Anyone who is taking risks because of external conditions or specific needs should wear a mask. Let others know and model this for them. Thanks @zeynep @nntaleb @hjluks Sui Huang, please add others

My take on POTUS and his announcement that he's taking prophylactic #Hydroxychloroquine :

We have no idea if he is actually taking it. His track record for truth telling is...well...nil. We can speculate on why he would say it though...

Regardless, 2 points:
#Hydroxychloroquine is a life-saving drug that is prescribed by many doctors for many different patients who actually need it for serious illness.

In #dermatology, we are very, very familiar, and comfortable, with this drug.
Does it have potentially deadly side effects?
Does nearly every drug?
Yes. Including tylenol and ibuprofen.

The conversation around HCQ muddies up the waters around the actual benefits of this drug for inflammatory and autoimmune diseases (ie, lupus).
