⚠️#COVID19 deaths in #NYC continue to skyrocket faster than *anywhere* else globally.

#Coronavirus deaths also surging in #Michigan, NJ, and #Louisiana.

#CA and #FL are earlier in their outbreaks, so time and TESTING will tell.

The next 4-6 weeks will be hell.

Daily #COVID19 death tolls in the US and UK are *accelerating* in a straight line on a log-scale chart👉🏼deaths are still increasing EXPONENTIALLY.

All other countries had begun slowing the rate of increase in deaths by now.

The US *still* has NOT locked down nationwide.🤬
Daily #COVID19 death tolls are finally flattening in #Italy and #Spain: each new day has FEWER deaths.

In the US (not locked down), the #coronavirus death toll is ACCELERATING: each new day has MORE dead than the last, and the rate of increase is RISING.

#COVID19 lockdowns and quarantines seem to be reducing crime rates outside.

But inside - at home - increased rates of domestic abuse are a reminder of another kind of global pandemic: violence against women and children.

Home has never been safe for everyone. #coronavirus
Crime drops in lockdown, domestic violence risk climbs… #COVID19 #coronavirus
Reported domestic violence cases jumped 30% during lockdown in #France.

In #Paris alone, they were up 36%.

⚠️#COVID19 deaths continue to surge in the U.S. as more #coronavirus testing comes online and viral spread continues to accelerate.

#Spain and #France locked down after ~200 deaths; #Italy after 800.

The US has >1,500 deaths and has NOT locked down.

New York and Catalonia (#Spain) have the fastest rise in #COVID19 deaths. #Louisiana (New Orleans) and south #Florida are emerging as new #coronavirus "hot zones," surpassing #WA.

#CA has relatively little testing but is also seeing a surge in deaths.

NATIONWIDE #LockdownNow‼️
⚠️#Coronavirus cases in the U.S. are now higher than *any* other country at the same point in its outbreak, with new cases DOUBLING nearly *every 2 days*.

Yet the U.S. still has NOT locked down.🤬

How did #Spain get its #coronavirus response so wrong?

The Socialist-led government of Pedro Sánchez reacted late and clumsily (well, that's an understatement, useless & incompetent is a better label), crowded events as other countries were locking down…
On 8 March, just a week before the country was closed down, sports events, political party conferences & massive demonstrations to mark International Women’s Day all took place. 3 days later, about 3,000 Atlético de Madrid fans flew together for another match in Liverpool.
When Sánchez announced that he would be invoking emergency powers, he took more than 24 hours to put them in place – by which time part of the population of Madrid and other cities had dispersed across the country.

#Spain | Economy is very sensitive to the Covid-19 shock. High unemployment rate (13.8%), high government debt (+-100% of GDP) and a high structural deficit are the usual suspects too look at. But some characteristics of the economy also makes it sensitive… (1/4) @ING_Economics
The Tourism and Travel sector is hit hard by the crisis and that sector accounts for about 15% of GDP (2/4)
The Spanish economy also has a high level of small companies. Academic research shows that these are more vulnerable to exogenous shocks as they have limited financial, managerial and technological resources. (3/4)

⚠️New #coronavirus cases continue to explode in the US, as a consequence of both increased #COVID19 testing and exponential viral spread.

Cases are doubling *nearly every 2 days*.

INACTION = more people DIE.


😱#COVID19 death toll in the US is rising at a faster rate than nearly any country, with #coronavirus deaths DOUBLING *nearly every 2 days*.

Deaths are a “lagging” indicator, as it takes time for patients to 1) become symptomatic (median=5 days) and 2) to succumb (2-3 weeks). 2/
This #coronavirus has an R0=3 (each infected person infects 3 other people on average).

After 10 rounds of this, that 1st infection leads to 59,000 new #COVID19 cases.

And the virus has been circulating UNDETECTED in our communities for MONTHS.🤬

This is how E.U reacts #economy #CoronaOutbreak !

#German Govt is making up to €500bn in loans available to companies who are hit, these companies can now defer payments worth billions of euros in tax payments, will compensate workers who r sent home by their employers
#France promised unlimited budgetary support for companies and employees affected by #CoronaOutbreak—that will cost €45bn, will pay laid off employees, arrange €300bn of French state guarantees for bank loans to businesses & €1tn of such guarantees from European institutions.
#Italian Govt passed a decree earmarking €25 billion,
one-off payments of €500/person for the self-employed, govt support for companies paying redundancy payments to their staff, a freeze on any worker lay-offs, and a cash bonus for Italians still working during the lockdown.

This thread will be on why Spain would be the next country harshly-affected by #coronavirus outbreak.

Why could overseas Chinese sent so many medical supplies home from Spain?👇
Ever heard of Qingt
ian? 青田

The hillside county is located near Wenzhou China, and has a population of about 500,000 people.

Half of its citizens work abroad & most of them seem to have chosen one destination in particular to live:

In fact, Changjiang Daily estimates that 90,000 of the 160,000 Chinese with residency in #Spain come from Qingtian. 青田

That makes them the largest Chinese community, exceeding those from Fujian province (18% of Chinese immigrants), as well as Wenzhou (15%).

While many, all, of us rather do al this in person, we are going to have to adjust in the weeks to come. #BSDBGenSoc2020 is a good way to explore how we are going to do it so, THANKS @_BSDB_ and @the_Node for organizing and running this.

Second day of confinement at home. I have to say something about the Spanish situation (thread):
1) A confinement where people can go to work and public transportation is full of people due to a lower frequency of trains is totally useless to stop #covid19ESP
2) It is now clear to me that asymptomatic infections are the majority. Best evidences are the the Diamond Princess cruise ship and Vo’ Euganeo (Italy) where ALL people were tested for #COVID19.
3) Diamond Princess cruise: tests of most of the 3,711 people aboard confirmed that 634 (17%) had the virus; 328 of them did not have symptoms at the time of diagnosis. That is 51%. Of all the infected, 0,91% died (all >70 years old)…

Collective sacrifice. A concept rarely asked of us as a society, but one being asked of us at this moment in time, as we face off against #COVIDー19 . Our initial response to this request (viewed through the admittedly skewed prism of social media) is underwhelming to the least.
We’ve all been told of the critical importance of slowing the spread of this disease, lest the healthcare system become overwhelmed and many more persons die. #bendthecurve, etc. We’ve been told the most effective way to do so is to practice...
#SocialDistancing. And to that end, we’ve cancelled concerts, conferences and numerous other venues in which the disease can most easily spread. School districts are closing, businesses are closing and untold amounts of people are working from home.

I am not hysterical or fearful when it comes to #CoronaVirus. What I am “Truly” Concerned About & Afraid of: is “How” the Powers & Governments Can Utilize & Use it- and the “Things” they can Do to us Utilizing it. Does That Make Sense?
#CoronaVirus: The Timing of it makes me think. The Reaction & Associated Actions to it Make me think Twice and Harder. And the possible “Man-Made” (Non-Organic) consequences and results make me highly concerned. Hope you catch my drift.

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/
