For #NYC area health workers, front line workers & now all essential workers, here’s a volunteer project where you can get free support services during this time of stress, grief and fear. Licensed mental health pros, chaplains, stress reduction experts. nyccovidcare.org
2/ It’s a simple intake form, you specify the kind of support you seek and you will be matched with qualified professional. There are currently 1500 volunteers who’ve signed up to participate. It was originally focused on health care workers and first responders but ...
3/ now has been opened to all essential workers who must continue to work out of the home with all the stress and risk of exposure that entails. Even if you are not in one of these groups I encourage you to RT this thread of otherwise share the link above.

This is E 180th St. station in the Bronx. This is what it’s like to NOT have the privilege of working from home. Social distancing is a privilege that many don’t have. #COVID19 #NYC
When Trump et al talk about “Reopening America” remember that America HAS been open because so many did not have the privilege to work from home. The “economy” Trump wants to “save” was never for them
Who HAS been keeping America open: it is always about race, class & gender:

Among the US workforce, just 16.2% of Latinx workers and 19.7% of Black Americans are able to work from home, while about 30% of whites and 37% of Asian-Americans can. #COVID19

Voy a explicar por qué la bici es una opción de movilidad indispensable para #CDMX y #Edomex durante esta emergencia sanitaria de #COVIDー19mx
"El transporte público es un vector para la distribución global y local del virus". Aquí se ve cómo una persona portadora en un autobús en Hunan contagió a otras 9.
En ciudades densamente pobladas y extendidas como CDMX es impensable detener el transporte público, pero es un hecho incontrovertible que el virus viaja con las personas y que el riesgo de contagio es mayor en donde no hay @SusanaDistancia: aglomeración en espacios cerrados.

⚠️#COVID19 cases in the US continue to explode, as I predicted over a month ago. The number of new #coronavirus cases is DOUBLING *nearly every 2 days*.

This likely is due to more testing and exponentially fast viral spread.

Expect this trend to continue for several more weeks.
Unfortunately, NYC’s #COVID19 death toll continues to accelerate faster than *any* other region globally (albeit #China is hardly transparent).

The next 4-6 weeks in NYC will be very, very tough.

#coronavirus #CoronavirusPandemic @thespybrief
📸@jburnmurdoch
Unfortunately, the #COVID19 death toll of the entire US is also accelerating, as regions outside of #NYC report that their hospitals are at/over capacity with #coronavirus patients.

Expect this trend to continue for at least a few weeks.

NATIONWIDE LOCK DOWN NEEDED NOW‼️

My wife’s working in the #COVID19 unit tomorrow here in #NYC . How are people decontaminating once they get home? Need as many tips as possible. So far we’ve been removing all clothing right when we get into the house and jumping into the shower...
Thank you all! Very helpful for both me and my wife.

⚠️Death toll from #coronavirus surges in #NYC with deaths DOUBLING *nearly every day*, much faster than Northern #Italy (Lombardia) where hospitals are overwhelmed

#WA and #CA have less deaths, likely due to lower relative density of their populations.

#COVID19
📸@jburnmurdoch
The number of #coronavirus cases in the US continues to explode at the fastest pace at the same time point for *any* country.

Although #China likely covered up cases, the US still isn’t testing heavily.🤬

#COVID19 #CoronavirusPandemic
The total number of #coronavirus deaths in the US *appears* to be rising slower than other countries, but expect #COVID19 deaths to accelerate over the next few weeks, as more testing becomes available, and the virus continues to spread exponentially.

(1/) Five days ago I forecast that NYC’s hospitals would be at capacity with #coronavirus cases by Mar 30. I was wrong. New data suggest that #NYC’s hospitals will reach capacity of approx. 3,000 cases by Mar 24. #shutdownNYC
medium.com/@donnellymjd/c…
(2/) While there is now nothing we can do to prevent reaching capacity short of immediately adding beds, we can prevent additional deaths and hospitalizations by fully shutting down NYC except for absolutely essential services, like Italy’s current restrictions.
(3/) Why was the first forecast wrong by a few days? Detection rate. In the prior worst case scenario, we assumed an overall detection rate of 18%, which implied fewer undetected cases. New hospitalization data imply an estimated detection rate of just 5.6% today.

#NewYork @NYGovCuomo's updates: 1) Increased tests=5,200 #COVID19 positive; #NYC: 3,615. Hospitals+Med centers need 3M N95 masks, 50M surgical masks, 15K ventilators, 25M of surg gowns+coveralls, gloves, reg face masks. BDB is now Rationing tests bc of low supplies. Bad Decision.
The huge surge #COVID19 positive overnight thanks to expanded tests. #Brooklyn jumped fr 3/16: 157 to 3/19: 1,030; Queens: 980; Bronx: 436; Manhattan: 976; SI: 165
#NewYork processed 7,584 cases from Wednesday PM to Thursday AM.

Condolences to loved ones of 29 NewYorkers.
@NYGovCuomo It's utterly mad that Mayor Bill De Blasio is rationing testing in #NYC. During press conf, Health Commish Oxiris Barbot tells ppl "not to bother to get tested, just assumed you're positive." What kind of a horse-ass thing to say to #NewYorkers? #PublicHealth Crisis.

Due to the high volume of #COVID19 #IBD patients @nyulangone , we developed a management protocol that incorporates #COVID19 severity, risk factors, and #IBD activity. We recognize this is a challenging time and we look forward to further guidance and input into our protocol.
We look forward to input and we are aware #Hydroxychloroquine is becoming increasingly difficult to find in #NYC pharmacies #IBD

What is highly worrisome here is the #NYC seems to be moving into the ‘testing no longer matters as much’ camp. When the best science and studies are pointing toward the need for intensive testing. Oh well.
3/ I think one issue is that it is true once you’re to a certain ubiquity it becomes v hard to contract trace. But you need an intensity of testing to know directionally where you are and to find people who have infections but are asymptomatic.

Sharing my story of "potential" #COVID19 & attempts to get a test/care.“Potential” bc it's IMPOSSIBLE to be tested in NYC-more below incl call w/hospital that shows strain on health system.Based on Xray/exam my GP is sure I have it.On 3/12 I began experiencing shortness of breath
(2/2) ...also chest tightness, which are all SEVERE #COVID19 symptoms , indicative of pneumonia...I also had a fever. In large part sharing this bc I'm 40 and in v. good health....I surf and do hypoxic training so lungs are fit. False sense of security that only 70+ are in danger
(3/3) Here's the video (Part 1) + some quotes: "Dr: What should I do since the fed govt, state govt and dept of health are no help at all? " //  "NYU: Hospital bed occupancy - it’s definitely looking busy. Both Cornell and Lower Manhattan are on surge level.”

⚠️@BilldeBlasio's decision to keep #NYC schools open is "incredibly foolish. The #coronavirus will spread like wildfire among the children. They get infected, and they can spread that virus easily to older people who are at a MUCH higher risk." ~me

nytimes.com/aponline/2020/…
It's extremely important that these kids have food security, and their working parents will need financial and other support, once the schools close. But keeping schools open in the face of this deadly #pandemic is truly foolish.

#coronavirus #COVID19
Kids from families without homes get assistance (in addition to meals) from schools and will need substantial support. I urge NYC to do the right thing, close the schools, and support these kids and their families.

(1/11) The #NYC Region is in trouble. Our #COVID19 case load is growing so quickly that we risk running out of hospital beds in UNDER TWO WEEKS. To avoid a crisis at our hospitals, we need to act now. 1,200 hospital beds are not enough. @BilldeBlasio @NYCSpeakerCoJo @NYGovCuomo
(2/11) @BilldeBlasio says we have ONLY 1,200 beds for #COVID19. (1010wins.radio.com/articles/de-bl…) At this rate, we could see over half a million severely sick people at once. There’s no way the NYC hospitals can handle that influx. The ill who can’t get care will die at higher rates.
(3/11) In more than 97% of model runs, NYC runs out of hospital capacity under current policies. To see how this model works, take a look at my note for a full explanation of what’s going on with #COVID19 and how I calculate these forecasts. medium.com/@donnellymjd/n…

In general, v impressed with actions, communication from #NYS and #NYC. Things are moving quickly. Hopefully there will be a change today. But I think #NYC is making a big mistake resisting canceling big public events like St Patrick's Day parade. I'm no expert. But the ...
2/ experts are speaking very clearly about this. Big public events, even outdoors, especially near a hotspot are a bad idea. There's peer-reviewed research specifically about parades as major vectors of contagion during epidemics like #COVID19.
3/ I know #NYC is balancing many critical equities. The options are all bad. But this seems like a big mistake with potentially grave consequences.
