Let's look at the contact tracing metric in action:

Per best avail data, #Pennsylvania has 160 contact tracers.

There are an avg of 822 new daily cases --> we estimate they need 8,220 contact tracing staff to trace all new cases in 48 hrs, before too many others are infected.
This means that #Pennsylvania is likely able to trace only 2% of new COVID infections in 48 hours.

These low levels of tracing suggest there is either an active outbreak underway in #Pennsylvania, or almost no tracing capacity exists. Strong caution is warranted.
Experts recommend that at least 70% of contacts for each new case must be traced within 48 hours in order to contain COVID. Experts estimate that tracing each new case within 48 hours requires an average of 10 contact tracers per new case, as well as fast testing.

Welcome to the Pennsylvania member of Congress Tracking Report for the week ending March 22, 2020. We are doing things a bit differently this week. All of our content centers on the #COVID19 #coronavirus pandemic.
#MoCTrack 1/28…
First up, we have a recap of HR 6201, the #FamiliesFirst bill that was passed on Wednesday by the Senate and signed into law.
#MoCTrack 2/28…
If you have a chance, check out the #MoCTrack recap of the #FamiliesFirst action in the Senate. There were three attempts to amend the bill (1 good, 2 awful), and it is worth seeing ow our lawmakers voted on those efforts.

Hi #PA01!
Did you know that @RepBrianFitz moved into fancy new office space? @PA_Indivisible & @IndivisibleBUX decided to give him a welcome present.

The theme? We took a look at the folks our #GOP MoC has been spending time with.

HINT: he's NOT #bipartisan
Here's the full display at @RepBrianFitz's swanky new digs in #PA01.

But let's take a closer look at some of the #GOP folks who #LyinBrian spends his time with.
Oh look!
It's @RepBrianFitz of #PA01 with #Pennsylvania's least favorite Senator @SenToomey.

Fitz and #Patsy must get along because they are both #Trump enablers who turned a blind eye to impeachable offenses.

#MoCTrack 2/19
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics This week, the House voted on the #VotingRightsAct, a measure that would open the door for resumption of DOJ pre-clearance of new election laws in areas with a history of discrimination.

Democrat #Pennsylvania Representative Movita Johnson-Harrell was charged in PA for stealing more than $500 MILLION from a non-profit that she ran & using the money for herself.

#ButNothingsHappening #NonProfitFraud…
She stole the money from Motivation, Education & Consultation Associates (MECA), which is her own non-profit that she started back in 2006.

Looks like she diverted Medicaid and social security disability funds from MECA & bought trips, clothing, & made payments on her Porsche.
Interesting acronym for her "charity" - MECA

@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics We averted a #Shutdown this week, but did so by having Congress pass a continuing resolution, aka "kicking the can down the road until the week before Christmas"

Pay attention 👇👇👇

Here’s a list of 47 Communists posing as Democrats that are running in local elections on November ballots.

Lots in #Michigan, #Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Tennessee.
They are running in local city council races and school boards. People don’t pay enough attention to these commies and then wonder why their cities and schools go down the sewer.
Fits perfectly with my post here.

H/t @Jenny_OceanHun for the link!

🚨BREAKING: Democratic presidential campaigns targeted by #Russia🇷🇺on Instagram were UNAWARE until Facebook announced it publicly—with NO forewarning by FB or the government.

Trump has NO strategy to combat it, because he NEEDS it to win.🤬

“Democratic campaign officials said they were stunned to **learn from media reports** that their candidates had been potentially affected and wondered why they had not been briefed by Facebook or law enforcement.”

Yeah, why weren’t they forewarned?🤔…
Many of the #Russian🇷🇺accounts set their location to **swing states** critical to the 2020 election.

🚨Red alert to friends in #Florida, #Wisconsin, #Michigan, #Pennsylvania, and elsewhere. These #Russian posers are coming for us.🤬…
