@IHME_UW (Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation) and @UWMedicine (University of Washington’s School of Medicine), no lightweights, have come out with
global projections of #COVID19 by nation.
Short summary 👇

healthdata.org/news-release/f…
They modelled 3 scenarios:
1. Worse case:
- mask usage stays at current rates, and,
- governments continue relaxing social distancing requirements.
This leads to 4.0 million total deaths by the end of the year.
Best case:
- mask usage is near-universal, and,
- governments impose social distancing requirements when their daily death rate exceeds 8 per million.
This leads to 2.0 million total deaths if by the end of the year.

Our work is now officially out in @MolBioEvol: #Malaria viewed through the lens of an eradicated European strain tinyurl.com/qkqmaxe. (1/7) #published #genomics
On our hunt for past malaria we were fortunate to obtain a collection of blood-stained medical #microscope #slides prepared for diagnostics purposes in 1944 in Spain, one of the last footholds of #malaria in Europe. (2/7)
From these slides, and with a bit of lab wizardry from the team @uni_copenhagen @IBE_Barcelona, we were able to obtain a full #Pvivax genome - we also obtained a #Pfalciparum partial genome tinyurl.com/y2wsljcj. (3/7)

Very excited to see our work on the different types of El Niño published today @NatureGeosci showing dramatic changes of El Niño towards more Central and stronger Eastern Pacific El Niño events @unimelb @Monash_Science @uow @anuearthscience @CSIROnews #climatechange @NASA @NOAA
El Niño is one of the most important weather phenomena on Earth & comes in 2 types: warming occuring in the central Pacific vs strong traditional El Niño in the Eastern Pacific. How El Niño will behave with future climate change is an open question. rdcu.be/bAxOG
Using coral records, we show that the number of Central Pacific El Nino events has increased by the end of the 20th century, with fewer but stronger eastern Pacific El Niño events

At dinner, I learned more about corruption + racism built into society by our masters. A book we discussed (Zinn) was used as part of this "Left" resource's bibliography. I had to share. [A thread]

@BlackSocialists - thoughts on this resource?

historyisaweapon.com/indextrue.html
It very simply lays out the case that we are all being controlled. It covers hidden history of the United States including their (and, due to the systems created by our masters, our) racism.

If you haven't been in school for a while (or are in a terrible school), some of the words might trip you up. Dictionary.com and Wikipedia.org are two good resources to help you.
