Growth rate is key during a disease outbreak. The rate of growth in the the total confirmed #cases in #Canada seems to be showing signs of slowing and pulling away from the continued steep trend line seen, for example, in the United States (Green). #COVID19 #coronavirus 1/25
This is a +ve sign, but still very early to tell, esp. with an est. 1M+ #Canadians having just returned from travel, and #COVID-19 #testing only targeting >severe cases (due to rationing & backlog in lab testing), we don’t have a good grasp on the level of community spread. 2/25
The number of total cases is what we want to know, but the true number of these is not known. Not by us epidemiologists, nor by any other research, governmental or reporting institution. 3/25

This is going to be a long thread on some very interesting ties with the death of Barry & Honey #Sherman, #Apotex, (both of #Canada) and a pharmaceutical company called #Teva in #Israel. This will all tie back to #Coronavirus.
First I learned that #Apotex was donating #Hydroxychloroquine for a Clinical Study to Prevent Infection From #Covid-19 With Front Line Health Care Workers…
Remember that #Apotex was the company that Barry #Sherman was the Chairman and CEO of. He and his wife Honey were murdered in December 2017 under very suspicious circumstances.

#COVID-19 has yet to be documented in #Yemen, but Abdel Ilah, who manages the factory that opened three days ago, is getting ready for its arrival. “#Coronavirus is knocking on the whole world’s door,” he said.…
The five-year conflict has killed more than 100,000 and unleashed a humanitarian crisis in which many others have died. Yemen’s shattered healthcare infrastructure and already weakened population suggest the virus could wreak more havoc if takes hold.
On both sides of the divide, #Yemen has stepped up measures to contain and mitigate against coronavirus should it appear, including screening and tracking arrivals.

In #Sanaa, a rush on face masks as awareness about the disease increases has

1/ How early and how often have country leaders tweeted about #Coronavirus?

I downloaded the tweets of 9 Presidents and PMs, hand-coded them as Virus or Non-Virus, and plotted daily tweets from January 1 to March 16.

2/ Key Insights 1

- 🇰🇷@moonriver365, 🇯🇵@AbeShinzo & 🇸🇬@leehsienloong tweet less in general but have used 50%+ of all tweets since January 1 for virus-related information

- #Singapore & #SouthKorea leaders have been tweeting steady flows of prep & risk info since late January
3/ Key Insights 2

- 🇫🇷 @EmmanuelMacron, 🇬🇧@BorisJohnson & 🇺🇸@realDonaldTrump were slowest to ramp up virus-related tweets

- 🇫🇷 Macron’s first tweet about the virus (Feb 27 - see below) was almost one month later than that of all other leaders except 🇬🇧Johnson (Feb 18)

#COVID19 #Canada…
Trudeau says temporary wage subsidies will be provided to businesses to keep employees on the payroll. Income tax deadlines extended to August. Child care benefit will also be boosted for families. #COVID19 #CoronavirusOutbreak #Canada
Trudeau announces $82bln rescue package. Plans to give businesses $10bln in credit to help them “bridge” tough times. Including that money, there will be $27bln in direct support to #Canadians & $55bln in tax deferrals. Cheques will be paid to many people every 2 weeks. #COVID19

Ahead of whatever the Federal and provincial governments in #Canada will announce today re: #coronavirus as someone in a country, #Denmark, on day 5 of a total lockdown I have some thoughts. #thread to follow.
There needs to be clear near daily press conferences and lines of communication. Here in #Denmark the gov is blasting out #coronavirus messaging via frequent press conferences, through the media, social media, text message blasts, and advertising on public transit. #Canada
#Denmark has quickly delivered a financial aid package for employees, industry, and large and small businesses. The fiscal pain due to the #coronavirus is going to be immense. Massive $ help will be required in any kind of a shutdown. #Canada

Latest “measures” by @JustinTrudeau and his useless do-nothing @liberal_party is to delay the start of cruise season and advise incoming travelers to self isolate. That’s it?? People are landing at imports with no questions or advise, let alone screening.
Other countries have locked down and are ACTIVELY flattening the curve of this deadly virus. And it’s working for them.

#Canada? Open for travelers via air and land MULTIPLE times daily, across 10 provinces. Four flights from Shanghai landing today in Vancouver alone!
By his inaction, or unwillingness to contain the virus, @JustinTrudeau has made each and every one of us sitting ducks. We must either quarantine 24/7, or risk coming into contact with infected travelers from all over the world, including epicentres of the Wuhan virus.

It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/

With 415 #Delegates at stake, the #CaliforniaPrimary represented the biggest haul in the country.

@EpochTimes spoke to voters in #OrangeCounty, #SanFrancisco County, and Santa Clara County as they entered the voting centers. (Thread👇)…
Many voters said they would support the Democrats in the general election even if their candidates lose the nomination.

#Healthcare was a top issue for many, and several older voters said that #Biden’s experience as vice president made them choose him.
Sen. @BernieSanders won #California with just over a million votes statewide, and @JoeBiden trailed him with about 740,000 votes.

About 1.5 million turned out to vote for Trump, who won the Republican primary.

3/11 At this time in #Canada, there is no evidence of community spread of #COVID19. Even so, while our focus continues to be on containment to delay the onset of community spread, we are fully engaged in preparedness across the health system. #coronavirus
