When victims of the Plague start getting rashes that looked like rings & were the colour of roses

Pocket full of posies

Some people thought the disease was due to bad air, so they carried sweet herbs in their pockets ImageImage
A-tishoo A-tishoo
We all fall down

When the people were getting really ill, they started coughing and sneezing and subsequently died.

The earliest cases of the Black Plague occurred in the spring of 1665 in a parish outside the city walls called St Giles-in-the-Fields.

The death rate began to rise during the hot summer months and peaked in September when 7,165 Londoners died in one week.

1/ How is it, on a personal level, to be a Respiratory physician & #Covid_19 researcher in the epicenter of the #coronavirus pandemic, in Sao Paulo, 🇧🇷:

I receive phone calls and whatsapp messages almost every day from colleagues & friends all over 🇧🇷 asking for advice/help
2/ Delicate/tender situations happen all the time, as for ex, when a physician friend from another State called me telling me he/she had covid19... he/she was deteriorating & he/she wanted me to help him/her decide on steroids yes/no #ThisIsTough 💔 ...
3/ Or when another friend called me to advise him/her on how to properly remove both elderly parents w ARF due to #covid19 through an Air ICU to another State to make sure his/her parents got the life support they needed.

After discovering that #GeorgeFloyd and #OfficerChauvin knew one another and had a history working together, and after listening to yesterday’s MN Department of Health #Covid press briefing, here is the readers digest version of my thoughts on what is going on:
The MN DoH said yesterday that they wouldn’t be surprised to see higher numbers of Covid due to the #riots, demographic, and lack of #SocialDistancing. Listen to video below at the 26 minute mark. (The last several minutes cut away to coverage of rioting.)
Governor Walz has stated that he doesn’t intend to fully reopen the state until there is a vaccine available.

Let's say you woke up with a terrible cough, a fever, and severe body aches. Immediately, you rush to the doctor and unfortunately, you’re diagnosed with COVID-19. For the last two weeks, you’ve been unaware that you were infected and you’ve ignored "the rules."
You've gotten together with some close friends for pizza, had a few people over, even visited a park and a beach. You figured, “I don’t feel sick. I have the right to keep living my normal life. No one can tell me what to do."
With your diagnosis, you spend the next few days at home on the couch, feeling pretty crappy; but then you’re well again because you’re young, healthy and strong. Lucky you.

1/ THREAD: Memorial Day in a Pandemic

I often struggle with #MemorialDay. With the calls for celebration and happiness on this day. For BBQs and summer fun.

Because nothing about this day is happy.

This day is about #grief. About tragedy. About #death and loss.

🇺🇸 😔 😢
2/ Above all, it is a day of RESPECT. Because Americans gave their lives in service to protect the citizens and country of the United States.

The lives they previously dreamt of were cut short. And that selfless gift of life is one of the highest honors to serve your country. Image
3/ But their husbands and wives will never kiss their spouses again. Their children will never hug their mothers or fathers again. It doesn’t change the visceral grief of parents losing their children to #prematuredeath. #memorialdayweekend2020 Image

Socialization while #socialdistancing. A thread. I know this is hard. I’m going to share here how we celebrated my daughters 6th birthday to give some examples on how you can still celebrate the important moments that continue to happen as life goes on during this #pandemic.
First we asked my daughter to pick a few friends and we asked each to sign up for a 20 min slot. We asked that anyone who came wear a mask, and asked if anyone was having symptoms to pls decline the invite. We decorated our garage and put tape on the ground #6FtApartAndMasked
When ppl arrived they would first hand sanitize then write in a birthday book (we had mult pens). We had a backdrop for ppl to take pictures. Next stop the piñata where prior to touching the stick u would hand sanitize, then take 3 whacks. Next was socially distanced #hopscotch.

Hello, after 2 months India has resumed commercial #aviation

My employer has asked me to fly from @DelhiAirport to @BLRAirport and back

I will be tweeting about #NewNormal of flying post during #COVID__19

DEL wears a deserted look with barely 14 flights an hour
Mostly people who have essential needs are taking the flight very cautiously

Suraj, from Noida has an urgent surgery that needs to be done at Bangalore & has covered himself in a hazmet suit

#aviation during #COVID__19
Airlines have placed agents so that you don't get confused about the gate number

Segregation is essential to maintain #SocialDistancing

Here's a short list of things we do and don't yet know about #COVID19.
1. We don't yet know the true case fatality rate. (E.g.: if you catch it, how likely are you to die?)

Scientists agree that the CDC's #s are likely underestimates; but it's AT LEAST 4x more deadly than the flu, if infected; & will infect far more ppl.…
2. We don't yet know *exactly* how it's transmitted. Definitely by droplets. But maybe aerosols? Maybe fomites?

----> For now: best practice in the non-healthcare setting is mask, distance, and hand-washing…

1/30 In two forthcoming pieces, I examine #Japan's response to the #COVID19 #coronavirus #pandemic. I'll summarize the main non-theoretical points here (long thread alert!).
2/30 #Japan’s figures have always looked good compared to many other countries, which initially led to suspicion that the ‘real’ numbers of #COVID19 #coronavirus infections & death were being played down.
3/30 #Tokyo Metropolitan Government at least has now released full #COVID19 figures, including general death rates, seeming to put this argument to rest (but these figures are also now being challenged).…

1) As Premier @francoislegault announced Thursday that day camps will open on June 22 as scheduled, he cited progress in the fight against the #pandemic in Quebec, the hardest-hit province in Canada. In this thread, I will explain why Montreal is still at risk of flare-ups.
2) Montreal’s chief public health officer, Dr. Mylène Drouin, noted that the city's #COVID hospitalizations and intensive-care stays have decreased since last week, although she did not provide any figures. Certainly, that’s a welcome development amid tight confinement measures.
3) Drouin also pointed out that “even though we are testing more and more every day, we are seeing a decline in the epidemiological curve.” In the chart below, I will leave it up to you to decide whether, in fact, that is truly the case.

Must Watch: Debunking The Narrative With Prof. Dolores Cahill


Immune system takes 10 days to clear this virus & then ur immune for life

There is no cause for imposing #lockdown, #SocialDistancing, #Masks

#FakePandemic #Scamdemic…
There has never been a #vaccine for this type of virus & none is required Nor is any new drug required. If ever developed it must be tested against hydroxychloroquine

Vaccines cause diseases & deaths, are the main cause of the #CytokineStorm

#Plandemic #Event201 #NWO
Vaccines suppress immunity

We have to call this out now! Or this is a trick they will keep playing every year

Alexander #Solzhenitsyn said if we had spoken out on day 1, we would not have ended up in the #gulag

Gove says ‘schools are safe!’- UK Govt advice “if child develops #COVID19 symptoms at school “they must be sent home...If a child is awaiting collection, they should be moved, if possible, to a room where they can be isolated behind a closed door-Thread👇🏽
..depending on age of child & with appropriate adult supervision if required. Ideally, a window should be opened for ventilation. If it is not possible to isolate them, move them to an area which is at least 2 metres away from other people🙈…
If they need to go to the bathroom while waiting to be collected, they should use a separate bathroom if possible. The bathroom should be cleaned & disinfected using standard cleaning products before being used by anyone else.

Given the number of unknowns about school in the fall, I believe all school leaders need to be setting up focused teams to address the following 6 areas. 1/7 #education #edtech #onlinelearning #remotelearning
Team #1: Develop summer professional development program so all faculty are fully capable of teaching curriculum in-person, online, or in a hybrid/HyFlex model.… 2/7
Team #2: Ensure that your campus or school building meets new health and hygiene standards. 3/7

1/ Dear selfish *******, I see you out jogging, cycling & walking. I am very conscious of the 2 metre rule which is 6 ft for those of you who don’t know. We have been cocooning for weeks on end & I only began to be able to take my extremely vulnerable son out for walks last week.
2/ We haven’t gone out every day because some days are just too busy. I live in the Countryside beside the canal which is lovely. The path at the canal is probably just about 2m wide so even with the best will in the world it is impossible to pass people allowing the 2m distance.
3/ But at least some people try. I don’t even think it’s most people, maybe 50%. Then there’s the others who are too selfish to realise that there are people who are at risk of this virus. Some of those probably think that families like mine should just stay at home. #Covid19

Me and my entire family was hit with #COVID19 including the children. It’s not a joke. Take it seriously. Continue #SocialDistancing despite the ease on the #lockdown. Be responsible. #lockdownextension #FridayThoughts
Thanks to everyone’s love, prayers and support we are all better now.
After 12 days of continuous fevers, body aches, no taste, no smell, nausea, difficulty breathg, hospital visits, I felt that I was going to die. It was at this time that I said to God that if it is time for me then I am ready, but please protect my kids.

Like many, I’ve had some extra fee time these days... After rebinging @theofficenbc and #theofficereunion I was inspired.

A thread of Trump’s handling of the #coronavirus (#COVID19) pandemic, as told by Michael Scott. #TheOffice
Way back in 2018, Trump decided it was a good idea to disassemble the #Pandemic Response Team – created by the Obama administration in case there was “an airborne disease that is deadly.” This can’t go wrong! #thiswaspreventable
Trump does nothing to replace this. He plays golf and insults people on Twitter – just the normal things that presidents do right?

We are planning pavement widening and cycle lanes to help with social distancing as well as improved signage, particularly in the city centre. We will be announcing details early next week #SocialDistancing
We are also working with partners in the West of England to agree a list of transport schemes that can be introduced in the short term utilising the pending government funding #SocialDistancing
And we also see this as an opportunity to radically rethink the way we travel around Bath and North East Somerset. As part of our recovery we have a once-in-a-generation chance to develop long-term changes. #SocialDistancing

1. This #Plandemic, #Vaccine push, #Economy crash & loss of jobs, has been planned for decades. They are trying to bring on the #NewWorldOrder. [They] want you completely dependent on #Government. Trump is in their way.
2. This is all about the election and them winning back control. It’s not hard to figure out. The Deep State Coup against our duly elected President failed. Their crimes are being exposed.

What do they have to lose? EVERYTHING. They will stop at nothing.
3. #Obamagate is being exposed. Trump was being spied on. This is MASSIVE compared to Watergate!

Don’t you wonder why the Mockingbird Media is either twisting the narrative or not even reporting the unfolding evidence?

No #SocialDistancing by fascist cops 😉…
The Daily 🕎 Mail reports on Minsk Parade
Belarus ‘bribes people’ to attend Victory Day parade! 🤣
President Alexander Lukashenko has rejected #lockdown, earlier claiming coronavirus is a 'mass psychosis' 😉…
Belarus is considered by the Western media and politicians as a 'brutal regime'!
Meanwhile in the West our civil rights are trampled by the (semi-)police 😉
#Belarus has made a joke out of the Western politicians and their #Covid_19 fearporn.
