@DrEricDing I was 32 when I got covid working the front lines in nyc in April. Prior to it, I was running 5+miles a day plus other exercise. It all changed starting 4/12/2020. It started with a fever. And they didn’t subside until 7/28. (1)
@DrEricDing I had cardiac, neurological, rheumatological, dermatological, and pulmonary symptoms as well. I had to be followed by 5 specialists including infectious disease. I had all sorts of tests done. The fevers stopped on 7/28 but I am still not back to normal. I still can’t run. (2)
@DrEricDing I am always fatigued. I still get ‘covid’ rashes and experience weakness in my legs. I am now 33. I’ve never been so sick in my life as I was during those 4 months. I wish more people took this seriously. For those who aren’t physicians or healthcare workers going through it (3)

LAPD rally today at the LAPD Academy— hello Proud Boy. LAPD breaks up #fight between a Proud Boy and BLM. Proud Boy assumes BLM is all fatherless and finds that hilarious (noted at the end of video)

Clearly Proud Boys are not “okay” with homosexuals. At LAPD rally today, Proud Body makes homophobic statement and tells me to go home because I’m a “little girl”

I'm an Iraq War vet & ER doctor on the frontlines of the pandemic in NYC and Arizona. My colleagues and I have seen countless people die from COVID who should be ALIVE. Trump dances on the graves of Americans that didn’t have to die #TrumpGraveDancer
As an ER doctor that has lost 3 colleagues and a 27 y.o. cousin to the virus, let me RECAP 42 WAYS Trump failed America during the pandemic!

1. Months before the pandemic, Trump cut the number of CDC experts in China from 47 to 14.
2. The same day WHO warned of global PPE shortages, the Trump admin announced that it was transporting to China 17.8 tons of "masks, gowns, gauze, respirators, and other vital materials to China to appease them for his Trade Deal, leaving healthcare workers with little PPE!!!!

Kamala looks great!

Then there's Mike Pensive.
moderator says she'll enforce the rules. Good.
Kamala talks about how to deal with #TrumpVirus. The greatest failure of any presidential administration in our history. Tells America that Trump and Pence were informed and did nothing.

🔥WHOA. In an unprecedented move, the editors of the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine condemn the Trump administration for its FAILED response to the #coronavirus pandemic.

And they call for @realDonaldTrump to be VOTED OUT.💥

“The magnitude of this failure is astonishing. The US leads the world in #COVID19 cases and in deaths. The death rate in this country is more than double that of #Canada, exceeds that of #Japan, a country with a vulnerable and elderly population, by a factor of almost 50.”💥
We have FAILED at almost every step. We had ample warning, but when the disease 1st arrived, we were incapable of testing effectively & couldn’t provide even the most basic #PPE to health care workers and the general public. And we continue to be way behind the curve in testing.

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.

Here's what Donald Trump can expect.

First, the symptoms are not easily controlled with medication. Hydroxychloroquine or whatever the hell that Oleander extract was are not going to help alleviate his conditions.
They can get an Imodium for diarrhea, they can give him Tylenol for the flu like symptoms, but it's a virus and there is no vaccine and there is no cure. It has to pass in your body has to fight it off.

There is some research that says convalescent plasma May assist...
I was too far along for that to be of use to me. I'm getting ready to start donating myself, but I'm really glad my blood is not going in that Nazi piece of shit! It is probably too late for him to receive that, because he took too long to get medical attention.

#TrumpCovid comments (2/15)
Trump's most idiotic COVID comments (3/15)
Read 15 tweets
⚠️If Hope Hicks traveled within close proximity to Trump aboard Air Force One—presumably while NOT wearing a mask—then Trump likely was exposed to the #coronavirus.

However, that does not necessarily mean it’s likely that Trump will be infected and/or get sick. 1/

A large study in #India of over 500,000 people showed that **only 8%** of #coronavirus-infected people accounted for 60% of all new infections.

These are “superspreaders.” 🦠
In this same study, the chances that a #coronavirus-infected person spread the virus to a household contact (CLOSE contact) was only 9%.

‼️Michael Caputo—@HHSGov spokesperson on leave—*took $300 million from @CDCgov during a #pandemic* to run an ad campaign to "defeat despair" about the #coronavirus crisis.

Trump is trying to spin the deaths of 200,000 Americans.🤬

#TrumpVirus #COVID19…
Caputo—who has no medical or scientific background—said in his Facebook rant that this PR spin was "demanded of me by the president of the US. Personally."

Trump *ordered $300 million be stolen from CDC during a #pandemic* to spin his failure to contain #coronavirus.🤬

Bottom line: Trump diverted $300 million of our tax dollars FROM CDC DURING A PANDEMIC to run a spin campaign about his FAILED #coronavirus response to help his campaign.🤬

Rand Paul pretended, in a Senate hearing, that #TrumpVirus infections in New York may have declined because of herd immunity.

Less that 20% of New Yorkers have been infected. It takes around 70% being infected (and recovered) to achieve herd immunity.

Rand Paul is an idiot.
Rand Paul talked about the large number of infections that happened in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. He implied (but did not outright say) these were due to attempts at social distancing. He neglected to mention Trump's refusal of PPE or masks.
Rand Paul said New York had more per capita deaths than Sweden, which didn't do a lockdown like NY did. But Sweden had a worse record than any other Scandinavian country. And NY had to fight against Trump's dedication to stochastic genicode.

#Presidementia 1/ More important than my opinion on Trump’s brain decline is the established fact that his incompetence/malfeasance has resulted in countless deaths. Why does not matter. The greatest world power has the worst #COVID19 response. #TrumpLiesAmericansDie #TrumpVirus
#Presidementia 2/ Trump’s inaction on #COVID19 started in January, but he *continues* not to act, & he is daily leading the anti-science, pro-denial, deadly & dangerous movement destroying our capacity to flatten the curve & defeat the virus.
@nytimes article: #COVID19 nightmare not over, USA failing, & it’s getting worse. America did not do what the successful countries did (Italy, S Korea, Germany, NZ, others). #TrumpLiesPeopleDie #Presidementia

🚨BREAKING: @CDCgov did NOT write a controversial guideline saying that people without #COVID19 symptoms don’t need to get tested for #coronavirus. @HHSGov officials wrote & posted it on CDC’s website, bypassing CDC’s scientific review process.

“That was a doc that came from the top down, from HHS & (Trump’s #coronavirus) task force. That policy does NOT reflect what many people at the CDC feel should be the policy.”

>40% of #COVID19 cases are transmitted by those without symptoms—testing asymptomatic people is CRUCIAL
The document contains “elementary errors”—it refers to “testing for #COVID19”(the illness), rather than for #coronavirus—and has recommendations inconsistent with CDC.’s stance that clearly mark it as not having been written by CDC scientists.🤬

So I was on a zoom call this evening but it appears that the United States just officially hit 200,000 #COVID19 deaths. That's 1 out of every 1,655 Americans. Image
U.S. cities with fewer than 200,000 residents:
Salt Lake City, UT
Amarillo, TX
Tallahassee, FL
Akron, OH
Little Rock, AR
Tempe, AZ
Knoxville, TN
Mobile, AL
By tomorrow, the #TrumpVirus will have killed more people than the population of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

In a week, Rochester, New York.

Within 2 weeks, Birmingham, Alabama.

Within a month, Boise, Idaho.

I need YOUR help. As most of you know my company got shutdown because of #COVID19 Now I'm struggling to pay my bills and rent.

If one of my tweets made you laugh PLEASE consider helping me out. RETWEET

👉Help here…

My rent is due in 3 days.
It's just me & my 12 year old daughter. A few days ago we found out my baby is positive for #COVID19 My parents are in their 70s and they struggle themselves with mounting medical bills. I still need about $1100 and I have no clue where to get it from.
I am starting a new job on the 28th but I have to survive until then. I exhausted all my other options and I'm already 3k pounds overdrawn with my bank. All the cards are maxed out and I don't know what else I can do.

Breaking Overnight:
As we surmised Trump admin officials incl Redfield & Caputo have attempted to control the CDC #COVID case/death & pandemic progress reporting by editing the weekly reports to suit Trump rhetoric:
2-"The health department’s politically appointed communications aides have demanded the right to review and seek changes to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s weekly scientific reports charting the progress of the coronavirus pandemic, in what officials
3-"characterized as an attempt to intimidate the reports’ authors and water down their communications to health professionals. In some cases, emails from communications aides to CDC Director Robert Redfield and other senior officials openly complained that the agency’s reports

🚨BREAKING: Michael Caputo & other Trump appointees interfered with @CDCgov’s weekly reports on #COVID19—and even tried to halt the reports—in an attempt to intimidate scientists to favor Trump’s dangerous views on #coronavirus.🤬

#TrumpVirus #TrumpKnew…
Emails from Caputo aides to CDC Director Robert Redfield and other senior CDC officials claimed that CDC’s reports would “undermine” @realDonaldTrump’s dangerously FALSE messages about #coronavirus.🙄


#TrumpLiesPeopleDie #COVID19 #TrumpKnew
CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports (MMWR) are authored by career scientists and serve to inform doctors, researchers and the public about how #COVID19 is spreading and who is at risk. Historically, these reports have have had NO political interference—they shouldn’t!🤬

Woodward Tapes Impact Thread 1/18

It is difficult to grasp the relevance of a bombshell news item, as it happens. How big news is this? Trump, Covid, Woodward tapes. For the Trumpomess, is it just another scandal? Or is this worse? Maybe? The worst... ever?

Woodward Thread 2/18

Trump Presidency is a Scandalothon. Impeached. The Helsinki Hostage Summit. Kids in cages. Love letters with North Korean Dictator. Drinking bleach. Bounties on US troops. Stormtroopers in Tulsa. Extorting Ukraine. Selling Puerto Rico?

How does this rate?
Woodward Thread 3/18

To understand impact. We start with the facts. What happened? Trump is on TAPE confessing to:
- Knew Covid is deadlier than flu ie 100,000+ will die
- Knew it transmits by air (= masks, gatherings)
- Confessed he downplayed it deliberately

So #TrumpKnew

🚨BREAKING: @realDonaldTrump admitted he *knew in FEBRUARY* that the #coronavirus was dangerous, airborne, highly contagious and "more deadly than even your strenuous flus,” adding that it was ~5 times "more deadly" than the flu.

‼️"I wanted to always play it down," Trump told Bob Woodward on March 19.

As a consequence, over 6,000,000 Americans have been infected with #coronavirus and nearly 200,000 are DEAD.🤬

#TrumpVirus #COVID19
I began warning about this #coronavirus in JANUARY. If, instead of LYING about the threat, Trump had acted decisively in early February with a #lockdown and a consistent message to #WearAMask, social distance and wash hands, MANY THOUSANDS of American lives could have been saved.
