Meanwhile, here in #Missouri:

Despite a major spike in active positive cases of #COVIDー19 in #AudrainCounty (from 22 to 46 on Friday, alone, in a county of ~25K), testing numbers **WILL NOT BE REPORTED AGAIN UNTIL MAY 26**, because of #MemorialDayWeekend.

Also (per @MexLedgerCD): During this sudden uptick, Audrain Co.'s drive-thru testing site at St. Mary’s Hospital, in Mexico, Mo., "will be closed Monday in observance of #MemorialDay."

The next closest testing site is in Columbia — 40 MILES AWAY.

The outbreak in question centers around #AnimalFeedingOperations in Paris, Mo. and Thompson, Mo., owned by @BrennemanPork, which is based in Washington, Iowa.

Short #Missouri #COVID19 evening update 🧵 for Wednesday, 5/13, covering testing data for MO, #StLouis zip code and individual-level outcomes, and #STL hospitalization data -….

We’ve got more hospitalization metric improvements today despite… 1/7
… a jump in the number of new admissions ☝️. These jumps have happened before, even when the overall trend is downward. Focus on that trend and not the absolute change. Metrics for sickest patients, ICUs and ventilator use, also continued their downward trajectories 👇. 2/7
Worse news on the testing front, where we are failing to expand testing and have falling from our recent peak numbers on the 7-day average of new tests. On the plus side, our % positive is dropping, but we really need to expand our testing capacity and are failing to do so. 3/7

The CDC’s proposed criteria for reopening states (…) recommends a downward trajectory of #COVID19 cases within a 14-day period (among other criteria). We reviewed case counts over the past 14 days for states reopening today

Here is my #Missouri #COVID 🧵 for Monday, 5/4. To see the interactive maps, head over to the MO tracking site -….

Since Missouri “reopens” today, with the statewide #StayAtHome order lifted, I want to take stock of our data.

I don’t want to bury the lede, though - as of “reopening” day, we:

❌ do not have reliable, public hospitalization or symptom data,
❌ have not increased testing volume in weeks, and
❌ have significant increases in cases in multiple regions around the state.

The state’s highest rates are in Saline County ☝️☝️, where an outbreak several meatpacking plants has led to nearly 200 cases. An earlier meatpacking outbreak in Moniteau County seems to have subsided based on the data we have at hand. 3/22

Nightly #COVID19 update for #Missouri with data through 4/28 has been pushed to my tracking site. Will have a full 🧵 in the morning, but wanted to share that the 7-day average of new cases in MO, not including the #StLouis metro, hit a new peak yesterday of 74.71 cases. 1/3
You can see updated versions of my plots and interactive maps, along with zip code and individual level data for #StLouis that is current as of tonight (it will be a day ahead from now on), on the site -… 2/3
Incase you missed it, there has been a change to my data sources and methodology, and so the timing of updates will be different from tonight on. My thread from this morning has all the details on these changes! 3/3

Here is my #Missouri #COVID 🧵 for Tuesday, 4/28. To see the interactive maps, head over to the MO tracking site -….

Today, we have a special Parson’s reopening edition of the thread, with two plots showing new cases in MO 👇: 1/16
Specifically, the plots ☝️ show a 7-day average of new cases in MO on both a log and a linear scale. They break apart all of MO’s new cases, and only new cases outside of the #StLouis metro (since that is where many reported cases are). I’ve labeled peak dates as well. 2/16
Part of the White House’s plan is to identify “data-driven” metrics that show improvement in states, one of which is whether new cases are declining. I don’t know if states got more guidance than what is on the White House’s website… 3/16

His name was Dennis Wilson. He was a retired school superintendent. He went to Urgent Care 3 times and was denied a test because he didn’t fit the “criteria.” The last time he went in an Ambulance. He died 5 days later because in Kansas sick people can’t get tested.
We hear these stories daily now.
Americans are dying because by the time they are tested , it’s too late to save them. If you or your family gets sick, you will likely not get a test. You won’t fit the #CDC guidelines. Isn’t it time to change the rules?
We know we are beyond guidelines. We have #CommunitySpread everywhere. Yet, we have few numbers to show because we don’t give the tests to know. What can we do? What can WE DO NOW to save lives? The talking points of POTUS today was save the economy.
Can we just save people 1st?

THREAD: 1/n. I have a self-quarantined central #Ohio client who was on the #CarnivalValor cruise with this man. I believe that our #Columbus community needs to know of her experience with #Carnival and @OHdeptofhealth.

I will be updating this thread as I find out more.
2/ My client is female, between 45-50 years old. Before I continue, people should know that she has been in public places in central #Ohio for days. She found out from a friend this morning who had seen this morning's @ColumbusHealth #COVID19 announcement. Places she's been:
3/ Sunday March 9th: @Costco at #Polaris; #Costco in #PlainCity; #Aldi in #Delaware.

Wed. March 12th, after work: @TommysPizzaOhio but not yet sure which location.

#Missouri #moleg

Peter Merideth (HD80):

“Just watched as numerous reps voted yes on a bill passing through committee that they don’t support. It’s so frustrating how the budget chair and leadership use their leverage on other issues to make members support things
they know are bad policy.

The bill was to take about 3% of the SLPS and KCP budgets and transfer it to the charter schools in their districts. The argument for doing so being that it makes all of the per pupil dollars follow the students that go to the charter schools
(currently a small share of local dollars stays with the districts).

While this change sounds fair and “equal,” the problem is it’s not so simple to think that charters and traditional public schools have all the same costs and therefore deserve all the same public funding.

Thread with facts about this move.
ERS & NIFA don’t need to be “close to producers” as farmers are not their stakeholders. Their stakeholders are Congress, USDA policy officials, & researchers, all of which reside in DC & who use their research to create policy for the benefit of farmers.
As Laura Dodson, a USDA researcher has said, “We do a national level of research. Suggesting we could be better researchers seeing a single cornfield in one state is wrong. We are in service of national agriculture, we service all, not just one region or a specific few.”

THREAD: Today is the 81st anniversary of #Kristallnacht. Many Americans assume that such events, as well as the broader scope of the Holocaust, was unknown in the United States.

Not so. Here's a sampling of how Kristallnacht was reported in newspapers in #Missouri alone.
#Kristallnacht in the St. Louis Star-Times.
#Kristallnacht in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

I've been thinking about this terrible, brutal thing being done to women who want an #abortion in #Missouri. It's really unconscionable to treat women and girls this way.
Everyone who wants an abortion --NO exceptions, so that includes rape victims like I was, girls who have been incested, women whose birth control failed, women who already have more kids than they can handle--has to have this vaginal exam first, before they can be approved.
An internal exam. With a speculum AND fingers.

Let me tell you that this is awful.
Every woman hates these exams.
It's a violation.
And it's one thing when your doctor has to check for fibroids or do a PAP test. But this is just to humiliate and demean and violate.

#Alabama, #Ohio, #Missouri, and #Georgia have begun the @GOP's orchestrated attack on women with restrictive abortion laws.

Make NO mistake this is NOT about protecting life. It is a hostile GOP and their #WarOnWomen restricting #WomensReproductiveRights and #WomensHealth.
Highly restrictive abortion laws are not associated with lower abortion rates! Whether legal or prohibited the number of abortions taking place remains relatively unchanged. Highly restrictive abortion laws simply prevent SAFE abortions.
In countries where abortion is completely banned or permitted only to save the woman’s life or preserve her physical health, only 1 in 4 abortions were safe; whereas, in countries where abortion is legal on broader grounds, nearly 9 in 10 abortions were done safely.

Morning, all -

Please be aware, the Missouri state senate has passed a bill (24/10) banning abortion at 8 weeks, with no exceptions for rape and incest

It's headed back to the House, and Governor Parson will 100% sign.…
Things we can do right now:

1. Donate to @PPSLR. They are the ONLY clinic providing abortions left in the state. This was true as of February 2019.

Donate link here:…

News story here:…
2. Missouri pals - I'm going to write a few scripts for you shortly. If you need it customized, let me know. We're going to help make sure everyone has their say against this bill.

3. As I've said before: start looking into adopting a 2020 Senate candidate now.

I have a serious update for you.

As many of you know, I filed two lawsuits to fight political corruption in Missouri. #moleg #mogov #missouri
I filed the first in June 2018. I sued a fake charity that our former Governor used to hide the names of political donors. I filed a second one in October 2018 after our current Governor refused to freely turn over communications between our government and dark money operatives.
I’ve been fighting these cases on my own, sometimes from the trunk of my car. In my laptop bag, I carry a long receipt from a printshop. It’s for $576.52, the cost to print evidence for just one hearing I’ve funded this past year.

The @FBI General Counsel @DanaBoente has proven to be a key player in the Trump Admin.

Few, however, are aware of the many crucial positions he has held—and why he may have held them. (Thread 👇)…
During President Trump’s first 2 years in office, Boente served as the Acting #AttorneyGeneral, Acting Deputy Attorney General, Acting Head of @TheJusticeDept's #NationalSecurity Division, and currently serves as the @FBI’s General Counsel.
To more fully understand Boente’s role, we need to go back to Jan. 13, 2017, when President @BarackObama issued a last-minute #ExecutiveOrder that altered the line of succession within #DOJ.
