#IMMUNI: IL THREAD DEFINITIVO

L'app italiana per il #ContactTracing è quasi pronta: ecco un riassunto finale dei punti salienti emersi in questi mesi, per aiutare a capire e decidere se usarla:

1⃣ EFFICACIA
2⃣ EFFICIENZA
3⃣ RISCHI
4⃣ IMPLICAZIONI

(Thread lungo)

1/N ⬇️
1⃣ EFFICACIA

L'efficacia di un'app per il #ContactTracing può essere considerata in due modi:

a) Efficacia "ampia", ovvero essere una valida alternativa al #lockdown generalizzato

b) Efficacia "ristretta", ovvero essere un valido supporto nel contenimento di #Covid_19

2/N ⬇️
Anzitutto va detto chiaro che non c'è MAI stata neanche la vaga possibilità che l'uso di un'app potesse essere un'alternativa al lockdown (qui lo dice anche il capo dell'app di Singapore blog.gds-gov.tech/automated-cont…). E questo per almeno 4 ragioni pratiche.

No, Dr. Fauci! You have NO RIGHT to dangle our High Holiday Synagogue services in front of us to implement the Left’s intrusive, heinous #CCPVirus #Contact Tracing program! We have a #Constitution that protects our Freedoms of religion & assembly... forward.com/fast-forward/4…
Groups larger than 10 are banned for health & safety reasons, yet Dr. Fauci is willing to waive that for compliance with the Left’s nefarious #ContractTracing scheme! How does that protect us? IT DOESN’T—IT’S ALL ABOUT CONTROL.
This whole #ContactTracing scheme reeks of ‘Acorn,’ from years ago, and should be thoroughly investigated before implemented.

1/ I don’t know if many Americans have actually seen the numbers.
As of today, we have 74,810 #American deaths.
Total Global deaths are 265,885*
worldometers.info/coronavirus/

The #USA makes up 28.1% of ALL global deaths from #COVID19

*Without true transparency from #China

But WHY?
2/ #SARSCoV2 does not have a particular affinity for #Americans.

No.

Even Northern #Italy, who was overrun, has fought it back.
New York is almost like a separate country.
Excluding #NewYork from our data, cases in ALL other states are increasing.

nytimes.com/interactive/20…
3/ #NewYork and other countries have proven that fighting the virus is possible.
#HongKong, #NewZealand, #Korea, #Germany, #Greece, even the #CzechRepublic have stopped the spread, and all with different strategies.

Excellent piece by @riptari on the devil's in the #privacy-by-design detail of #Bluetooth #ContactTracing. This 'head-to-head' is between DP-PTT & PEPP-PT

Makes you wish some in the #health arena hadn't been so badly abusing the term '#anonymised'...

techcrunch.com/2020/04/06/eu-…
And a heads-up on some of the possible features (or rather, bugs) of @NHSX's #Contact tracing app.

Makes you wish some in the #policing arena hadn't been so ridiculously overstepping their powers...

wired.co.uk/article/nhs-co…
HINT: for (public) #health interventions to be #successful is dependent on factors other than just whether they #work. The two examples above illustrate (as we have been saying for quite some time now!) that one absolute fundamental is #trust.

Thread . Lots of positive energy towards #ContactTracing from the tech sector, but not sure we need more/better apps for #COVID19 #ContactTracing is much more than just maps, which we also have plenty of. Hybrid tech:human approaches are essential. #ClickandMortar
Identifying and mapping #contacts is a core goal of #ContactTracing but there are important details that cannot be scraped from passive location & interaction data such as the specific nature of the contact individuals, disease and clues about #viral load & infectious dose
These details cannot be adequately determined without collecting data that would clearly be an invasion of #privacy unless adequate #InformedConsent is utilized with EVERY subject and #contact.

Enormously excited about my TV debut tonight on #Contact for @Discovery (check your listings!).

And yeah I want to talk about it a LOT. But…

I need to take this moment to get something off my chest about mass murder and the weaponizing of history.

THREAD 1/x
In the past days, white supremacists have murdered dozens of people. Among the texts that inspired this violence is the racist manifesto “Might Is Right or The Survival of the Fittest,” published in 1896 under the pseudonym “Ragnar Redbeard.” 2/x
The shooter at the Gilroy Garlic Festival mentioned the book on Instagram days before opening fire on the crowd, murdering three people and wounding many more. It is frequently cited in the alt-right circles through which other shooters have moved. 3/x
