(Thread) While this chart is frightening, reality is even more dire. The contagion rate in New York City is actually around 3 per thousand (vs New York State's 2 per thousand). This places NYC just behind Italy's hard-hit Lombardy Region in per capita cases.@narativlive #Covid19
2. The fatality rate in New York City is also rising. The current rate is about 1.7%, a far cry from Lombardy's 10%, but as hospitals strain from overcrowding and frontline workers battle infections, the number of deaths will increase. That's why #Covid19 is such a killer.
3. The growth in the contagion rate will likely max out at around 50% according to Mayor De Bblasio. At Lombardy's fatality rate of 10% were talking about 45,000 deaths in #NYC. This could be where we're heading absent a lockdown.#CoronavirusOutbreak

#NewYork @NYGovCuomo's updates: 1) Increased tests=5,200 #COVID19 positive; #NYC: 3,615. Hospitals+Med centers need 3M N95 masks, 50M surgical masks, 15K ventilators, 25M of surg gowns+coveralls, gloves, reg face masks. BDB is now Rationing tests bc of low supplies. Bad Decision.
The huge surge #COVID19 positive overnight thanks to expanded tests. #Brooklyn jumped fr 3/16: 157 to 3/19: 1,030; Queens: 980; Bronx: 436; Manhattan: 976; SI: 165
#NewYork processed 7,584 cases from Wednesday PM to Thursday AM.

Condolences to loved ones of 29 NewYorkers.
@NYGovCuomo It's utterly mad that Mayor Bill De Blasio is rationing testing in #NYC. During press conf, Health Commish Oxiris Barbot tells ppl "not to bother to get tested, just assumed you're positive." What kind of a horse-ass thing to say to #NewYorkers? #PublicHealth Crisis.

I will remember Friday March 6. It will probably be the last time for a while I will be in a crowded club. It was for the Nefertitties drag night in #Brooklyn hosted by my dear friend #Egyptian queen AnaMasreya. Here we are in our Cheetah prints for Cheetah Gurlz Night
It also starred Mexican queen Koko Rokokko and Palestinian queen Eva Laurent
AnaMasreya asked me to say a few words and I will post the video of what I said soon.

TL:DR there is no liberation without queer liberation, without gender liberation, without sexual liberation.
The revolution starts in my cunt.

I finally have a legit personal & professional news announcement, and it doubles as a #DecadeinReview #lookback: I am moving to Philadelphia in the new year to join @PhillyInquirer as a digital producer! 10.5 yrs ago, I had just finished an internship w their health desk. 1/?

Speaking at @Abantu_ in South Africa was last leg in 2019 of #FeministGiant World Tour. It was a privilege & thrill to start it in #Sarajevo with #Bosnia’s first Pride and end it in #Soweto with #AbantuBookFest. Revolution in Sarajevo to revolution in Soweto. It’s been an honour!
Along the way,speaking at Pitchwise in #Sarajevo, @strandbookstore in #NYC, @RMWAdam in #Amsterdam, @McrLitFest in #Manchester, @akefestival in #Lagos, @wcfbook in #Chicago, also in #Brooklyn, #Ottawa, #Sydney, #Melbourne & turning #Australia upside down via TV. It’s been a ride!
So many incredible audiences & new friends along the way. Many thanks to all who came to hear me speak. Many thanks for the love and the gifts. So many powerful experiences. I’ve returned home full. Time now to reflect and then write about these three months. #FeministGiant

It’s hard to believe this was ever a place for cars. The most interesting thing about the #TimesSquare transformation in New York by ⁦@MikeBloomberg⁩ ⁦@JSadikKhan⁩ & ⁦@citiesforpeople⁩ — it wasn’t sold as “place-making.” It was about TRAFFIC WORKING BETTER.
There’s lots of reasons why New York’s Bryant Park is one of the best people-places anywhere. But my favourite reasons are the many diverse well-defined “sub-spaces” as you walk around it; the massive number of moveable chairs; & the big beautiful shade trees on a hot, sunny day.
What is successful urbanism? If there’s a lot of people in a “public space” (it’s not actually public), is it a good place? New York’s new Hudson Yards development has been criticized by many urbanists, & defended by some, so I needed to see it myself. It raised many questions:

"the UCC and its sub-groups have disseminated ISIS propaganda online, including “kill lists,” which listed the names of individuals – for example, soldiers in the United States Armed Forces and members of the State Department –
whom the group instructed their followers to kill.  For example, on or about April 21, 2016, the UCC posted online the names, addresses, and other personal identifying information of approximately 3,602 individuals in the New York City area and included a message that stated:
“List of most important citizens of #NewYork and #Brooklyn and some other cities . . . We Want them #Dead.”

📅January 25, 1972:

👩🏿Shirley Chisholm (1924-2005), who died at the age of 80, was the first African American elected to Congress. She served for seven terms (1969-1983).

🇺🇸Her historic announcement to run for president as she was the first African American woman to do so.
𝗨𝗡𝗕𝗢𝗨𝗚𝗛𝗧 & 𝗨𝗡𝗕𝗢𝗦𝗦𝗘𝗗

No one thought Shirley Chisholm would last more than a couple of months, but at the 1972 Democratic Nat'l Convention, she received 152 delegate votes—10% of the total—amazing considering her skimpy campaign war chest.

𝗨𝗡𝗕𝗢𝗨𝗚𝗛𝗧 & 𝗨𝗡𝗕𝗢𝗦𝗦𝗘𝗗 (CONT'D)

Next year, the city of New York will erect not one—but two—statues in her honor near where she grew up in #Brooklyn #NewYork.

1. This is a love letter 💌 to all of those who are currently in the service industry.

Last night, a Wall Street guy was drinking at an NYC bar where my husband @BobbyCrace was working. The Wall Street guy didn’t tip him.
2. A man sitting next to The Wall Street bro noticed said to him “You forgot to tip the bartender.” To which the Wall Street bro responded:

“No I didn’t. It will be better for him if I don’t.”
3. An indication that if Bobby were tipped, it would be looked at as a “handout“ and he wouldn’t be motivated to “work on his life”.

1. El Dalai Lama recibió 1 millón de dólares -para las causas que respalda- a cambio de asistir a la función de la bien conocida secta #NXIVM de culto sexual y maltrato a las mujeres, cuya filial mexicana, dirige @salinasemiliano

(Cito la fuente, en el siguiente tuit)
3. El evento al que el Dalai Lama asistió, fue en Nueva York, en 2009. En el budismo, la ofrenda de una khata -bufanda blanca- es un símbolo de agradecimiento.

Ese día, el Dalai Lama le entregó una khata, a Keith Raniere, líder de la secta #NXIVM
