A set of my thoughts and reflections from week 3 of working in a #Seattle #ICU in the time of #COVID19: (1/11)
Things are still changing at work but not as quickly now. I have adjusted to my new morning routine. When I wake up, I no longer feel the pull of habit to iron a clean shirt and make sure my shoes match my belt. Everyone wears scrubs; they all get left at the hospital. (2/11)
It feels like we entered a new phase this week. Almost everyone knows someone who has been infected, and many of us know people who are very sick or have died, some of them medical professionals. (3/11)

Some thoughts after week 2 of working in an #ICU here in #Seattle: (1/10)
The “new normal” is still in flux, but certain things are becoming more routine. I’ve adjusted to the slower pace of entering rooms with #InfectionControl precautions, online meetings are less buggy, and ordering some tests for patients has become easier. (2/10)
I’ve been surprised by the amount of fear not just from the public but also from other healthcare workers. I am becoming accustomed to caring for people with #COVID19, yet many are still not. It manifests as friction and pushback when calling a consult. (3/10)

After a week of working in the #ICU here in #Seattle caring for patients with #COVID19 (and other illnesses), here are some thoughts. #medtwitter (1/10)
We try to have a high index of suspicion for #SARSCoV2 and test critically-ill patients broadly. However, this means that many patients we test are actually negative. This presents a challenge for clinical reasoning. (2/10)
It takes more energy than usual to avoid anchoring too early and to keep a broad differential.

This is complicated further by the limits of rigorous #Isolation and attempts to preserve #PPE. (3/10)

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.

🚨Time to declare the #Seattle area a #coronavirus hot zone. Shut down all public areas, close businesses, and have people stay home. Those who are sick must be tested for #COVID19 and, if positive, quarantined AWAY from those who are NOT sick.

Act NOW, @GovInslee.
Time is of the essence. EVERY day counts. The longer we wait, the more who will become infected exponentially.

#Italy waited too long, and if Seattle waits, things could get WORSE than Italy.

NO ONE wants quarantines, but INACTION = more people die.

bostonglobe.com/2020/03/13/opi…
Specialized quarantine areas MUST be designated NOW. Most of the transmission in #China was via *close* contacts. If infected people are isolated at home, they can infect their families/housemates.

This video via @MaddowBlog is highly informative.👇🏼

“The sex industry in #Seattle (is applicable elsewhere) has seen an unprecedented collapse in demand, making workers worry that they’ll be unable to pay rent and,potentially, more likely to end up in unsafe situations out of desperation” h/t @heatherbarr1
huffpost.com/entry/seattle-…
In #Seattle, epicenter of US #coronavirusoutbreak, sex workers are one of 1st groups making adjustments:

- Taking temperature every morning and asking clients to do the same
- Instituted no-kissing policies
- Those who can afford to are setting up webcam sites/leaving the city
“I’m already seeing women in danger of moving into homeless encampments or losing custody of their kids,”

Indoor sex workers said regulars have started sending cancellations and new inquiries have dried up entirely. Street-based sex workers say customers have all but evaporated.

‼️For weeks, thousands of samples sat in #Seattle as researchers sought to test them for #coronavirus, but @CDCgov wouldn’t allow it.

“We felt like we were sitting, waiting for the #pandemic to emerge. We could help. We couldn’t do anything.”🤬
nytimes.com/2020/03/10/us/…
While the CDC failed to provide working #COVID19 tests, private and university clinical labs, which typically can develop their own tests, were frustrated about the SLOWNESS of the FDA as they prepped applications for emergency approvals from FDA for their #coronavirus tests.🤬
This is damning. While the Trump Administration LIED that there would be 1 million tests last week, instead there were countless untested samples in the “hot zone” of #Seattle that could have been tested EARLY, but were BLOCKED.

How many people were infected because of this⁉️

It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/

👏🏼GOOD NEWS: @GatesFoundation-funded program to offer *home-test kits* for #coronavirus in #Seattle. People will send a nose swab and get results in 1-2 days. Online forms will be used to trace & quarantine contacts of #COVID-positive people.

@thespybrief
seattletimes.com/seattle-news/h…
When the system is up and running, people in the #Seattle area who think they might be infected with the #coronavirus can fill out a questionnaire online. If their symptoms are consistent, they can request a test kit, which will be **delivered to their home within 2 hours(!)**.
The best way to contain the #CoronavirusOutbreak:

▶️EARLY detection
▶️Contact tracing
▶️Quarantines

This Gates program is fantastic, especially because those suspected to be infected with #coronavirus don’t even have to leave their home.

#CoronaVirusSeattle
2/ Using the method suggested by @balajis below it would be a reasonable to reckon that there are already a few thousand cases of COVID-19 lurking below the surface. These people have the virus but most don't know it yet.

3/ Analysis performed by @seattleflustudy shows a probable link between the first US case of COVID-19 on January 19th and a recent case in Snohomish county. That is, the virus has been spreading locally for over a month and a half

🚨BREAKING: @CDCgov confirms that a 2nd US patient has #coronavirus: the 1st is in #Seattle, the 2nd is a woman in #Chicago who had traveled to #Wuhan.

#China quarantined 14 cities, affecting 48 million people.

This is just the beginning...

@thespybrief
washingtonpost.com/world/coronavi…
@CDCgov @thespybrief I spent years developing an #Ebola treatment. Experts are concerned about this #coronovirus, because it's VERY contagious and appears to cause severe disease. Reports from #China a lagging indicators: the virus is spreading quickly, and people are still hospitalized/critical.
@CDCgov @thespybrief Expect this "Novel #coronavirus" to be named soon (perhaps #Wuhan-Cov?). Other recent #coronavirus outbreaks were caused by SARS, MERS-CoV.

Excellent resources to monitor the #CoronavirusOutbreak:
