🚨Outbreak of #COVID19 in a #WA choir suggests that #coronavirus can be *transmitted via microscopic aerosols*, in addition to much larger respiratory droplets from coughs or sneezes.

Of 60 members: 2 died, 3 in hospital,45 tested positive/have symptoms.

washingtonpost.com/world/2020/03/…
Friends, all previous guidance was that this enveloped #coronavirus spread via respiratory droplets (secretions from your nose via cough, sneeze, touch).

Aerosols can come through normal talking (singing makes MORE), meaning it spreads MUCH more easily.

Prior guidance was based on #SARS, a close relative of this #coronavirus. Unfortunately, new #facts now suggest #COVID19 spreads more easily.

Masks likely will be needed to 1) decrease the release of aerosols, and 2) decrease exposure to aerosols.

⚠️#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.

WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR⁉️
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.🤬

⚠️Across the country, hospitals are *already* overwhelmed, and it's only just the beginning.

INACTION = more people DIE.

#Michigan's *largest* healthcare system has 635 #COVID19 patients and is nearing capacity for staff and ventilators.

INACTION = more deaths.

NATIONWIDE LOCKDOWN NEEDED NOW‼️

h/t @DanBalitewicz
#Louisiana's death toll from #COVID19 is surging similar to that of Italy and Spain, with the 3rd highest number of cases per capita in the US – behind #NY and #WA state.

INACTION = more deaths.

⚠️Death toll from #coronavirus surges in #NYC with deaths DOUBLING *nearly every day*, much faster than Northern #Italy (Lombardia) where hospitals are overwhelmed

#WA and #CA have less deaths, likely due to lower relative density of their populations.

#COVID19
📸@jburnmurdoch
The number of #coronavirus cases in the US continues to explode at the fastest pace at the same time point for *any* country.

Although #China likely covered up cases, the US still isn’t testing heavily.🤬

#COVID19 #CoronavirusPandemic
The total number of #coronavirus deaths in the US *appears* to be rising slower than other countries, but expect #COVID19 deaths to accelerate over the next few weeks, as more testing becomes available, and the virus continues to spread exponentially.

THREAD on #COVID19 testing: Keep getting asked why testing is so limited in America versus what S. Korea & others did. This is a good article that explains some of it. But here's my attempt to break it down more simply. propublica.org/article/how-so… 1./
To understand why testing is so limited here, there are 3 factors: 1) the availability of tests; 2) the ability to process tests; and 3) the restrictions that have been placed on testing, either from the federal or state levels. 2./
Instead of using WHO test that was already developed, CDC decided to develop our own. Delayed testing substantially, esp when CDC tests were flawed initially. #WA state worked quickly to establish instate testing & also set up lab at #UW, which helped tremendously. 3./

Talking first about the trial of a 'goal attainment framework' within the #NDIS - that is to ensure that participants 'life goals' are 'clear, realistic and measurable'

This is subjective. Participant's goals should be their business only #Estimates #Auspol
The addition of 'clear, realistic and measurable' is new to the #NDIS lexicon

How is the #NDIS going to measure someone's life goals with respect to relationships? Sex Ed? Etc

As a disabled person on the NDIS pathway this is very important to me, and to many others #estimates
Will there be any impact on participants funding if the NDIA determines a participant's goal is 'unclear', 'unrealistic' or 'unmeasurable'? This is EXTREMELY important #Estimates #Auspol

1. Absolutely SHOCKING behavior from @nypost. I was asked 4 sources from #WalkAway for a story about black NYers leaving the left. I spent weeks finding ppl from #WA who met the criteria that reporter @DoreeLewak said she...
nypost.com/2020/02/29/why…
2. ...needed & then sent her their names & contact info for interviews. . I provided numerous pictures upon request from our #WalkAway Black Americans Town Halls. I gave a 20 min interview to @DoreeLewak for the piece.
The @nypost runs the piece, uses my sources....
3. ... and MAKES NO MENTION of #WalkAway, that these people are with my movement, or my interview with @DoreeLewak.
Hey, @nypost- I’m not one of your research assistants!!!
I was completely used and misled for information for a story and then cut out.
This is 100% NOT OK.

क्या होगा अगर मुस्लिम जरुरी कागजात NRC के लिये सरकार को नहीं देंगे ?

नमो और शाह के साथ खिलवाड़ मत करिये। यह दोनों अलग ही मिट्टी के बनें हैं

ज्यादातर सारे मुस्लिम कह रहे हैं कि वह NRC के संबंधित कोई दस्तावेज नहीं देंगे ।!!?

देखिए आगे क्या होता है?
मुस्लिम कह रहे हैं कि देखते हैं हमको कैसे BJP बाहर कराती है ?

कोई इनको बाहर नहीं कर रहा है। सिर्फ नीचे लिखी गई क्रिया चालू होगी ।
सबके पास आधार और पेन कार्ड है।

जो कोई NRC के लिये जरूरी दस्तावेज देने से इंकार करेगा ........
सरकार बिना नाम से एक पत्र जारी करेगी कि जो कोई सितंबर..2020 तक NRC के लिए जरूरी दस्तावेज पेश नहीं करेगा, कोई सरकारी कर्मचारी उनके घर नहीं आयेगा । उनको नियमित किये हुए दफ्तरों को जाना पड़ेगा और दस्तावेज जमा करवाने पड़ेंगे ।

What to expect for Europe in 2020? As the EU enters a new policy cycle, here’s to a few predictions that I’ve shared with @euronews #THREAD 1/9
The new EU political leadership overpromised by generating outsized expectations that might reveal too difficult to manage:

1. Defend EU interests vs US & China 2. Take the lead on climate change 3. Tackle rebellious EU illiberal democracies 4. Tame big tech 5. Overcome Brexit
