So I became ill with #COVID19 4 months ago. I thought that I'd beaten it and started to feel better. I hadn't though. My condition worsened and I was very ill.
I had developed pneumonia and pleurisy after having #COVID19 and lve spent the last 4 months fighting this.
I've rebounded 5 times and as a result of this I've got scarring on my lungs and my heart is inflamed.

To all of us in the health sector, I pray we manage PATIENTS/PEOPLE not #COVID19 🙏🏾 To the President, the tragedy, SIR,will not be in how many got infected but in how many lost their lives UNCOUNTED as we COUNTED 😔YES to #primarycare capacity - #NotLockdown @StateHouseKenya
1. Information and patient management guidelines and health workers support starting at the lowest health facility upwards #NotLockdown @MOH_Kenya
2. Pulse oximeters at all health facilities to identify patients in IMMEDIATE danger who need referral or high flow oxygen - patients are collapsing waiting for results 😢 - temperature scanners at hospitals casualty inadequate on their own #NotLockdown @MOH_Kenya

With #colleges reopening in the fall during the #COVID19 pandemic, we wanted to know:

What are students’ preferences and expectations for the fall semester?

Many #schools surveyed students earlier in the summer when evaluating reopening plans. However, the trajectory of #COVID19 looked very different than it does currently.

So, how have students been feeling recently?
We had 398 undergraduate @GeorgiaTechISyE students (incl. incoming freshmen >= 18 y.o.) complete our survey (~30% response rate)

~51 % of respondents were female students

~85 % were domestic students

~ 48% / 23% / 14%/ 15% were rising

1/many This thread contains the words of my amazing sister who is a #nurse #essentialworker working in the trenches fighting #COVID19
She has been encountering life & death situations on a daily basis. Ppl need to open up their eyes & pay attention. #ItsOkayToNotBeOkay
2/ This is loss. This is loosing in OT with 38 seconds remaining on the clock, all the MVP players are in, but the other team intercepts and wins. The other team that won? Death. 5 nights in a row I battled the angel of death on someone very close to my age.
3/ 5 nights in a row I climbed on top of the bed in full PPE: gown, 3 masks, a face shield, goggles, and 2 pairs of gloves to physically try to circulate the epinephrine into your heart for it to restart.

1/ Q: There's inevitably going to be some socializing this summer. How do I stay safe? How do I tell my kids and my parents to stay #safe?

A: #StaySMART!
2/ Wow, these are some unusual times! Some of us are in the streets every day with large groups, some of us haven't left our homes in months.

Help!?!? How can we socialize while keeping ourselves and others safe from #COVIDー19?
3/ The Dear Pandemic Nerdy Girls are delighted to partner with @IMPACT4HC to offer this handy infographic to help you remember 5 simple rules of thumb for reducing your #COVID19 transmission risk: Stay SMART!

We've Been Told From The Experts And Media That:

2) Masks Don't Work
3) Travel Bans Are Racist

8) We Don't Have Enough Resources To Accommodate All The People Who Will Fall Victim To This
9) We Need Hospital Ships And Field Hospitals (99% Of Which Went Unused)
10) Masks Work
11) We Need To Extend Stay At Home Orders, Regardless Of The Legality Of How Those Orders Were Issued

Let’s talk about the proverbial elephant in the room RE #CompassionateRelease of persons incarcerated in #prisons in the midst of #COVID19. A [long] thread with thanks to @briewsf @DrNovisky @GeriPowerMD 1/21
While a partnership between @FAMMFoundation @NACDL @WashLaw4CR is tackling petitions in the @OfficialFBOP Why don’t we see governors and other leadership extending release to many of the #vulnerable housed in state #prisons? 2/21
By #vulnerable, I mean those persons who meet #CDC guidelines for greatest risk of serious illness due to #COVID19 -- persons over 65 (#olderadults), those with #chronichealth problems including severe #asthma #liverdisease or are #immunocompromised (#hepatitis) 3/21

Things I am over - hypocrisy and inconsistency

1) If peaceful #protest on the steps of government buildings is a right, than it also is on a football field #TakeAKnee, in a park, etc

#Thread #equity #rant (1/8)
2) If we ban #guns from some buildings in the interest of security, that means for all people - not just those that aren't white

3) If #BlueLivesMatter, do not risk our brave protectors’ health by protesting near them without #masks

#MichiganProtest (2/8)
4) If you are not wearing #facemasks given your personal #liberty, than why do women not get extended the same for #Reproductiverights

5) If all life is sacred, than why would we sacrifice 2-3% of our population by #ReopenAmerica too quickly?

Alright y'all, whose hands are taking a beating from #COVID hand-washing, or face acting up with breakouts?

BC if you’re like me, your skin might be needing some extra TLC right now.

Here's a fun tweetorial on some tried & true, dermatologist-recommended skin care tips:
So, why can I tweet about this & why am I tweeting about this?

✅Well, it’s what I do for a living. I'm a board-certified dermatologist, 10 years in. Dermatology isn’t just skin care & acne, but it’s a lot of skin care and acne, so us #dermatologists are really good at it./2
✅I know you probably can’t get easy access to your doctor right now. Between #SocialDistance & doctors’ offices in essential-care-only mode (& much of this is not "essential care"), access is harder. I want you to have the information you need right now but can’t get as easily.

Happy Friday! We hope your day is going great. Following up on last week's #thread on Combating GBV during #COVID19. This week as part of #SexualAssaultAwarenessmonth our #thread touches on the rise of other #harmfulpractices against women during #COVID19 due to the lockdown.
This is a continuation of the conversations we have been having on how the #globalpandemic #covid19 is affecting the lives of girls and young women.
These conversations aim to ensure that we engage a #genderlens response mechanism during global pandemics ensuring the most vulnerable amongst us are not left out in the cold.

A Thread on the situation of Public Banks in #LockDown

Where a Common Bank Staff is providing Banking services as well as given duty to manage crowds for #SocialDistancing like Police.

Is it possible to work with 2 Roles?
No, Plz read why, Coz

24 March #LockDown Announced by Govt, Next Day, Bank managment asked Branch staff to work with 50% strength to maintain social distancing.

Even at state level SLBC decided to open few branches on alternative days to limit movement & support Govt decision.

Next day on 26th March, Govt announced the #PMGKY ( Pradhan Mantri Gareeb Kalyan Yojana )- Economic Relief Package of Rs 1.70 Lakh Crore which includes #DBT schemes to benefit around 40 Crore population.

I am done with voting for one dumpster fire over another? FUCK IT. A vote for no one is a vote for everyone.STOP LOOKING TO SO-CALLED LEADERS to do anything REAL or LASTING to improve society. IGNORE THE POPULARITY CONTEST and #SHUTITDOWNNOW. #KEEPITSHUTDOWN #NoOne2020

Here is an update on #COVID19 in Australia. Overall great -> flattening Detected cases 5910 (+110) doubling time >7 days Recovered 2483 (+>400) death 48 (+8). While detected cases -> flat, death trajectory goes exponential (will come back to this). We are still following Korea
State level, same story all flattening. Looking at NSW and VIC, detected cases from O/S travelers flattening but community cases (unknown contacts) steadily increasing ~ 12.8% (Australia 9.1%) of detected cases. Next few days (random testing) will tell extent of community cases
Testing side. Today >307,000 tests performed with 1.9% hit rate. Overall hit rate hasn't changed for the last 3-4 days but the testing is skewed towards O/S travelers. Testing criteria have been relaxed and will see whether the hit rate will increase with more testing

Great timing. Dispatched as envoy to A. Cen. 4 at height of Crown Fever season: doesn't bother Centaurs much, but is deadly to humans. So instead of fêtes and soirées, it's quarantine and Solitaire. Worse, Centauri's Spring is prettiest for light years!

[#hardshippost is a story I'll be doing in daily epistolary for the duration of the crisis. Stay tuned for more from A. Cen. 4!]

A Lieutenant in the Corps, 3 degrees in Diplomacy, but the closest view I get of the Centaurs is them galloping in the distance. Worse: I've dealt >400 hands of Martian Klondike over the past 2 weeks, and I've got the sneaking suspicion I'm cheating…

[Thread] If you were looking for the absolute worst policy response to #COVID19 - other than the one we already tried, which was failing to take even the most basic precautions for a tsunami we knew was coming - it would be the absolute lunacy of the President teasing that...
2. ...we’re going back to normal soon.

Despite what should be even half obvious to anyone paying remote attention, we have already, as a country, struggled greatly in getting people to take this disease seriously.
3. Restaurants, bars, beaches, stores – playgrounds for the selfish, uninformed, and uninterested.

We finally succeeded in sharing a good amount of that foolishness down, and now the President, extraordinarily fearful of what the resulting economic downturn is doing to his...

Watching @UKParliament statement from @MattHancock.

Very glad to see collegiate approach from @JonAshworth & @MattHancock and great to see thanks to the Paymaster General, @NazShahBfd, @wesstreeting, @SayeedaWarsi, @BoardofDeputies the concerns on forced cremation have been met.
I'm concerned MPs who due to the outdated voting system are putting their health at risk as they need to scrutinise the #CoronavirusBillUK but should have been able to scrutinise this virtually. /1
I'm worried for all those there and think its mad that @MattHancock who looks ill is having to deal with people like @SteveBakerHW and @CarolineLucas who are being so rude to @MattHancock and the other MPs. /2

A minority refuse to think of others, endangering us all by not trying to obey #SocialDistance rules.

Now my walking lifeline may go.

I recorded this video as its destroying me and I hope they change their behaviour. /1


I want people to get the message that there is another way and we must think of others.

I am praying even just one person hears my video and changes their behaviour and helps others.

So please share my video widely if you can. /2

Released lots of pain saying how I felt, so I'm happy to discuss this virtually to do my bit, so people might get message its vital they #BeKindToEachOther

@mattforde, @BBCNews, @SkyNews, @theipaper, @TweetTheArticle, @CohenJust happy to write/interviewed virtually therefore. /3

For the #OBGYN community please watch the free AAGL #COVIDー19 webinar w/ global gyn surgeons from Seattle to Italy & S.Korea. Sobering glimpse for what’s to come nationwide. I have summarized international takeaways below:
S.Korea has implemented many strategies that’s helping to effectively #FlattenTheCurve:

1. National coordinated/organized response:
-“United we stand, divided we fall”
2. Testing:
-Relatively cheap (<$200)
-Results available in 4-6 hours, -Convenience-drive thru testing launched quickly
-Fast Isolation and Treatment

3. Tracking (controversial)
-All confirmed cases using surveillance cameras, car license plates & credit cards

Norman, we need to talk. A week ago I declared our city was in a state of emergency. 3 days later we made the incredibly difficult choice to close some businesses, because the coronavirus is 3X more contagious than the flu and the ONLY way to slow its spread is social distancing.
Fast forward to today. It’s 10pm, and I’m getting messages from a local physician begging me to do what I can to get more personal protective equipment (PPE) for the hospital. They even sent me sewing instructions for making “pocket masks,” because the need is that severe.
Then they said “I went to Harbor Freight yesterday to get some makeshift PPE for when we run out, & it looked like a regular day w/ parking lots/streets full. I stopped in the Walmart parking lot but it was nearly full so I didn’t go in. People aren’t taking it seriously enough.”

1/10 It’s hard to shut my mind off in the face of #COVID19. As #AcuteCareSurgeons our day/night/weekend jobs taking care of #injured patients and #patients needing #EmergencySurgery for abdominal and soft tissue diseases do not dissipate.
2/10 Yet we are also experts in #CriticalCare and need to prepare to care for patients w/ #respiratoryfailure and #shock due to #COVID19. We are implementing #plans based on the little evidence that exists while trying to stay #safe, #healthy, and #resilient.
3/10 We step into the trauma bay as others threaten to shoot our patient (but police can protect us). We do operations where rHepC/HIV risk is high (but PEP can protect us). We don't shy away from blood, feces or dead flesh up to our eyeballs (but we have #PPE to protect us).
