Growth rate is key during a disease outbreak. The rate of growth in the the total confirmed #cases in #Canada seems to be showing signs of slowing and pulling away from the continued steep trend line seen, for example, in the United States (Green). #COVID19 #coronavirus 1/25
This is a +ve sign, but still very early to tell, esp. with an est. 1M+ #Canadians having just returned from travel, and #COVID-19 #testing only targeting >severe cases (due to rationing & backlog in lab testing), we don’t have a good grasp on the level of community spread. 2/25
The number of total cases is what we want to know, but the true number of these is not known. Not by us epidemiologists, nor by any other research, governmental or reporting institution. 3/25

Le 1er juillet 2011, le Haut Conseil de la santé publique considérait qu’en cas de crise importante telle que le Sras, il y avait "une efficacité préventive élevée des masques anti-projection et des appareils de protection respiratoire."
L'actuel Directeur Général de la Santé, dans un mail daté du 11 janvier 2017 au sein de l'équipe de campagne de E. Macron, défendait le "port du masque par les malades généralisé" en France à l'exemple de l'…

Benchmark des stratégies épidémiologiques en #Italie : la Région #Veneto a choisi une stratégie "déviante" de #tests systématiques par rapport à la stratégie nationale italienne... une stratégie de la région Veneto qui semble porter ses fruits par rapport aux autres régions...
La stratégie des tests en #Italie varie fortement d'une région à l'autre : des tests systématiques, à la sud-coréenne, dans la région #Veneto et des tests uniquement en cas de symptômes dans d'autres régions.…
La région #Vénétie suit l'exemple de la Corée du Sud, elle a même mis en place des #tests aléatoires aux passants asymptomatiques à la sortie des supermarchés.…

I want to share some information about why this is so serious.

Many people are wondering, understandably, why we have to take unprecedented measures, disrupting and devastating the economy and people's lives, to halt the spread of this virus. (1/20)
Today US confirmed #coronavirus cases surpassed 10,000 confirmed cases, an 8000% increase in 15 days. Of course this is a huge undercount because there have been relatively few tests done. What we do right now will determine what happens next. (2/20)
I've been focused on sharing info and advocacy related to the economic impact and the immediate impact of the shelter in place order, which are incredibly disruptive and devastating, especially for people who are already economically vulnerable. (3/20)

1\ I gave a lightning talk today on "Why I stopped call it #unit #testing” at our internal #mobile #apps and beyond conference
2\ Because whenever you ask teams about it they don’t tell you what #unit #testing means. Instead they say “of course we do!” And show you 100s of passing tests
3\ What you start to notice is that everyone assumes the other knows what unit #testing is but it’s when you ask “What do the unit tests test?” Thats when you get some interesting responses.
