🚨We have some answers on the #Florida Vote By Mail ballot that boomeranged for 7 weeks through the US mail, from a North Carolina post office to a #MiamiBeach home, and ultimately cost a resident her votes.

The headline: human error.
This thread has the rest:

2/ “I was furious my ballot wasn’t counted”
Laura Quinlan mailed from NC 3wks before the Aug #Florida primary. It landed at her home Tuesday “returned to sender” & “insufficient address”, tho clearly it’s the preprinted envelope destined for #Miami Dade Elections HQ
@WPLGLocal10
3/
#MIami Dade Elections has a @USPS liaison who says: the envelope should have been put in a separate, dedicated election mail stream. Instead, a carrier misfiled the envelope into the track that processes mail for return (despite the “official” logo at the top)

A thread on #ContactTracing for #COVID19. APHA @PublicHealth says 100,000 more contact tracers needed across U.S. for state and local health departments to stop the spread. 1/n #COVIDResponseCorps thenationshealth.aphapublications.org/content/50/5/1…
2. @DrTomFrieden's crucial indicators for #COVID19 control:
•Proportion of new cases with known source
•Proportion isolated within three days
•Proportion of cases among people in quarantine. An indicator of successful #ContactTracing.

3. #ContactTracing in #MA significantly downscaled. Multi-million dollar effort with @PIH now has ~700 staffers, down from 1,900. Complaints: computer glitches, inadequate training, poor communication. Some towns focusing on their own, in-house efforts. bostonglobe.com/2020/07/08/met…

🧵As an ER doctor, I’ve seen firsthand #COVID19 indiscriminately young people. This ongoing thread is dedicated to the 1000s between 18 and 45 killed by COVID & ignored by Trump

@realDonaldTrump:[They] don’t talk about deaths, because deaths are WAY down
A mother in Florida lost her 20-year-old son to COVID-19, and then 11 days later, her 22-year-old daughter also died from the disease. @realDonaldTrump @GovRonDeSantis

Ana Gabriela Cabrera Lopez, 32, from Clarke County Georgia died from #COVID. She worked for UGA Housing in the dormitories. The pandemic is out of control and schools are not safe! @realDonaldTrump @GOP onlineathens.com/news/20200807/… Image

@KathyFndzRundle's statement is riddled with misinformation. Her office has only prosecuted officers who have been caught red handed on camera, well some of them. We have caught officers lying numerous times, but she refuses to charge them. #Miami ready for this thread?
She did not find it warranted to charge @MiamiBeachPD Michael Muley. He blew a .287 (super drunk) and was messing with his firearm.

BONUS: The city did not follow... the collective bargaining agreement with the #FOP" Yup, FOP got him rehired.

miamiherald.com/article1219789…
An ASA noted that the police officers’ sworn depositions in the criminal case were “inconsistent” with their statements in the internal report, written by @MiamiPD"s Javier Ortiz. Video evidence proved he and Edward Lugo lied.

No charges.

🚨BREAKING: new study of 1,400 #Miami-Dade residents finds that ~6% (~165,000 people) have #coronavirus antibodies indicating a past infection, more than *15-times higher* than the official tally of 10,600 #COVID19 cases.

@univmiami @MJay130 @thespybrief
miamiherald.com/news/coronavir…
#Miami’s preliminary results show a ~15-fold under-detection of #COVID19 cases that is roughly consistent with the recent #NewYork results that showed ~10% under-detection of cases, both based on #coronavirus antibody testing.🧐

#CoronavirusPandemic
Sadly, the #Miami study reflects a national trend showing African Americans are disproportionately impacted by the novel #coronavirus. “African Americans are more than twice as likely to be infected with #COVID19 than other racial groups.”😰

Dumbfounded. Stunned. Astonished. @AngieNBC6 @SteveMacNBC6 and I are on conference readying today’s @nbc6 weathercasts and we’re overwhelmed by the sheer number of crazy heat records falling like flies here. This is July weather in April. First, here are current heat indexes.
90°+ days in 2020 up to this date = new record of 8 (previously 6)

75°+ nights in 2020 up to the date = new record of 17 (previously 16)

Earliest hottest weather of the year record has been set 3 times

Earliest 4 straight nights at 78°+ = new record by over 2 weeks (2017)

2/
19 heat records in 8 days collectively for #Miami, Fort Lauderdale and #KeyWest

Ratio of record heat to record cold in #Miami so far this year is 21-0

I stopped counting but up to February Fort Lauderdale had 120 record hot temperatures without a single cold record since 2015.

On March 8, my husband, who is a photographer for the southerncommand, was assigned for the visit of the President of Brazil to the facilities. On Tuesday 10 he had cold symptoms at night so he reported ill at work, speaking directly with The Deputy Garrison Manager since in his
work group there is no superior at the moment who is in charge of his
department. On Thursday the 12th he attended work, at noon he found out through the news that the chief of communication of Brazil was positive for coronavirus. At the end of the day he found out by chance
that there was a staff meeting with people involved in the March 8 event, in which no one communicate to him to attend the meeting to inform what had happened in a formal matter. My husband responsibly returned home and voluntarily isolated himself until he knew what would happen

1) BREAKING: #AQAP releases video claiming responsibility for December’s shooting at Naval Air Station #Pensacola, Florida, providing the will of attacker Muhammad al-Shamrani, which was written in September 2019, three months prior to attack. Image
2) The video also contains remarks by recently killed AQAP leader Qassim al-Rimi, who says of Shamrani: “For several years, our hero moved between several US military bases in America to select and contemplate his best and fattest target.” Image
3) #AQAP under Rimi’s leadership continued to focus on external ops in the US. Good that he was taken out, despite no official confirmation by US government (though @realDonaldTrump’s retweeting of my commentary on Rimi seems to be confirmation of sorts). Image

I don’t know if it’s being forced to watch the frequency at which deeper and more widespread saltwater inundation is impacting some neighborhoods in South Florida, or if it’s the inner demons released when teenagers like #Greta admonish adults, but this fall ...

I’ve had an inordinate number of, um, skeptics (I’m trying to be kind) bending themselves into pretzels trying to contradict what we in #miami and Fort Lauderdale are plainly seeing with our own eyes:

the cities are under siege from the surging seas.

They throw around all their expertly-gathered (#sarcasm) alternative facts, like “what do you expect when you build on a swamp?” Let me enlighten you:
