📍Trump’s “immunity” is likely artificial & temporary says experts. His synthetic antibodies could actually prevent his body from making own. Regeneron antibodies have a half life of 21–25 days—thus, by Oct 23, half gone by then. #COVID19 #TrumpCovid 🧵…
2) “Without replenishment, this decline may leave Mr. Trump even more susceptible to the virus than most patients who have recovered from Covid-19, several experts warned.”…
3) “Moreover, the steroid treatment the president received early in the course of his illness suppresses the body’s natural immune response, including its propensity to make antibodies of its own.”…

Omg... the overwhelming majority of Republican (men and women) who think the Coronavirus is overblown is just insane. It’s not just MAGA rally attendees, but basically 2/3rds to 3/4ths of all GOP voters who reject public health guidance. This is a Trump cult. #COVID19 #TrumpCovid
2) here is the actual Gallup poll. The difference is night and day on #COVID19 fundamental realities…
3) the gender disparity between men and women also huge. Also persistent even when adjusting for other factors.

This piece @_HarryPaul_ is a must-read. As we obsess over #TrumpCOVID, it would do us well to take a step back:
"The importance of protecting those with hidden disabilities, such as my restrictive lung disease, who are similarly vulnerable to poor outcomes from #Covid19 get lost"
He warns, re #LongCOVID: "individuals will face additional barriers as they seek accommodation in work, school, and their social lives"

[[editorial NB by me: This will be worse if the #ACA is repealed]]
Additionally, he cautions "Clinicians are not usually accustomed to talking about states of disability for which there is no clear biomedical explanation or treatment plan."

[[editorial NB by me: Esp for women & minorities]]

I've now watched it x2.
What we know from today's press conference on #TrumpCovid:
- Trump is going back to the White House
- The WH has high-quality care, perhaps as good as at some hospitals [but then why was he ever at Walter Reed?]
- He is still on dexamethasone & remdisivir
What we can deduce:
- His kidney function was not good at one point ("he was dehydrated")
- His lung function is impaired (no answers re CXR/CT scan; received dex; & many of us have seen the "happy hypoxia" of severe #COVID19)
What is mystifying:
- Why they won't tell us the date of the last negative test
- Whether he will actually isolate
- Why he would insist this is no big deal, when it has killed 209,000 Americans & required him to be in the hospital for 3 days

Dear @realDonaldTrump
You act like a child. You just potentially sacrificed the lives of two secret service members for a joyride. #TrumpCovid

I had #COVID19. I would have done anything to get outside my house for a ride. But that would have been bad for others.
I sweated through my clothes.
I coughed so hard that I pulled a muscle.
I was lucky enough to get a test.

But mine was a false negative. So, I couldn't get investigational therapies. Image
I too was on #dexamethasone . But unlike you, I was on it in March. It happened to be the only steroid I can handle.

I was irritable, and as tired as I was, I couldn't sleep. I didn't have my family here

As I warned, Trump’s condition was much more serious than revealed. His condition was deteriorating faster and earlier in the course of illness than is typical in #COVID19. Thus, the unproven antibody cocktail, #remdesivir (used for seriously ill patients), and now dexamethasone.
Patients with @COVID19 are hospitalized a median of 9days after onset of symptoms. Trump’s became symptomatic on Wednesday at the earliest, so today is Day 5. Yet Trump needed oxygen and hospitalization by Day 2.

It’s VERY CONCERNING that Trump was treated with dexamethasone. As @DrEricDing points out, dex is NOT effective in patients NOT on O2. Biggest benefit is for patients on O2/ventilator, less so for O2 only.

Watching the press conference on #TrumpCovid.

That he is not on oxygen is a good sign. They will not answer whether he was on O2 yesterday.

The use of remdesivir this early is unusual, but - he is the president.

"Cautiously optimistic".
They admit that he is getting treatments earlier than others get it.

This is the truth of our broken healthcare system: there are special treatments for special people. (Nb, VIP treatment doesn't always help.)
Lots of refusal to answer specifics about tests, fever, and oxygen levels.

Trump's campaign manager, Bill Stepien, has also tested positive for #COVID19

This comes days after telling staff without symptoms there's no need for them to quarantine

Perhaps, the entire White House should be put under quarantine! #DonaldTrump #TrumpCovid #TrumpHasCovid @aoc

According to his doctor, US President Donald Trump received a single dose of an antibody combination from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals as a treatment. The president is generally tired, but in good spirits, Image
according to a review by Sean Conley, which Trump's press spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany spreads on Twitter.
At the end of September, Regeneron asked for emergency approval for its experimental antibody combination REGN-COV2. The share of the US group rose 1.8 percent in after-hours trading.

According to doctors, US President Donald Trump is likely to experience severe symptoms of his coronavirus infection in the coming week. This is based on the assumption that the 74-year-old was infected a short time ago,
said Covid expert David Strain from the University of Exeter. "The classic respiratory problems would appear in the middle of next week." He referred to the course of the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, whose condition worsened on the tenth day.
However, several experts also spoke of the difficulty of predicting a course in Trump that is likely to receive the best possible care.

WORRIED—you almost **never ever** give someone a clinically untested drug like @Regeneron’s polyclonal antibody drug—unless it’s for compassionate use for someone severely ill, or you’re crazy. Right @VincentRK? This smacks of utter craziness or desperation. #COVID19 #TrumpCovid
2) the 8 gram @Regeneron dose is also supposedly the *higher* dose according to Sanjay Gupta on CNN.
3) more odd. The 8 gram dose isn’t even more effective than the lower dose. It’s already a somewhat unproven drug other than for viral dose. Why did they say even try it not to mention. Why the higher dose. These are weird signals.

I am in a strange space - feeling wise. I'm feeling a sense of loss. I hurt for all the victims of #COVID19; the ones who have succumbed to it, the ones suffering with it, the ones who have survived it with life-long complications. 1/4
I'm concerned for the health of the President. It puts us all at risk for a multitude of bad actors to take advantage of the precarious state of affairs, especially through a transition of Presidential powers, not to mention 31 days from a General Election. 2/4
Due to the inability of this Administration to 1) Come up with, much less execute, a national plan to keep us safe; and 2) Tell us the TRUTH, I have no idea how we're going to get through this. In the best scenario, the President recovers. 3/4

#TrumpCovid NOW @MarkMeadows speaking to reporters, “Good morning, obviously we had a great jobs report this morning. Unemployment down below 8%. Robust economy. Not what people are focused on...As all of you know the President + the First Lady tested positive for Covid 19.
They remain in good spirits. The President does have mild symptoms. As we look to try to make sure his health + safety is good, we look at that for all of the American people. Good spirits and energetic... He is certainly wanting to make sure that we stay engaged. Critically
important, doctors are monitoring their health. They will be glad to provide some updates later today. I think the, the great thing about this POTUS, is not only he’s staying committed, his first question to me is, was, how is the economy, how is the stimulus talks...”@CBSNews

That Trump and his family we’re flying all over the country and disregarding local COVID protocols remains shocking. The stupidity, the arrogance, the ubermenchness.
Hicks and Trump should issue formal apologies to everyone who was at the debate, everyone she came in contract w/on Wed and everyone the President came in contact w/on Thur.

The recklessness of all this, disregard for others, is MINDBOGGLING.

The head of the White House's coronavirus task force will spending 2 hours with the American people in prime time next week. Will be interesting to hear how he explains their recklessness, refusal to follow protocols, whether he is willing to apologize.
