Looking forward to what should be a timely debate on how and what the UK Govt can do to help to boost the UK's resilience #IfGResilience
First @tom_sasse opens the webinar by highlighting the recent extreme weather in both the summer & winter, the recent #Coronavirus pandemic & ongoing threats from terrorism & cybersecurity as reasons for #Resilience to be a top national priority #IfGResilience
Sasse notes that the government is due to publish its National Resilience Strategy "presently", but notes that it has probably been delayed in "the recent political maelstroms" #IfGResilience

es geht nicht um mich. aber es zeigt, wie die deutschsprachige #wikipedia arbeitet. hemmungslos, irritationslos, kritiklos.

@nzz @NZZfeuilleton wird zwar noch abgepresst, wie ich das #Wikipedis-prinzip als DIE NÄCHSTE NOTATIONSFORM sehe, aber ich darf innerhalb der deutschsprachigen #wikipedia nicht mehr editieren.

Donald Trump is undoubtedly - & by far - the worst President in US history.

Despite his bitter, fanatical & delusional supporters, the whole world - & most Americans - know this to be true.

It is now beyond a shadow of any doubt. Image
During the Great Recession of 2007-9, the US economy lost approximately 9 million jobs.

By April, the pandemic recession had seen nearly 10 million unemployment claims in just two weeks, & the unemployment rate was 13% - the highest since the Great Depression ended 80 years ago. Image
Far worse is the human carnage.

The richest nation on earth has more confirmed #coronavirus cases than anywhere else.

Trump claimed on February 26th: “Within a couple of days, it’s going to be down to close to zero. That’s a pretty good job we’ve done.”

@AnooBhu has got me interested in looking at the trials registerd in #ctri (…) Limiting it to Covid trials there are a total of 477 records. Many are observational studies so not really trials at all. Some are of homeopathic treatments.
Some are sponsored by pharma cos. Many are badly designed and unlikely to set the world alight. Some are downright mischievous. But let me comment on one that is downright naughty. It is Registry No CTRI/2020/06/025957 by Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Limited. This is a set up.
It covers 21 trial sites - mostly teaching hospitals, hopes to recruit a total sample of 158 patients hospitalized with mild-mod symptoms of pneumonia (SpO2 <93%) to be randomly allocated by computer to receive either
A) favipiravir, or
B) favipiravir + umifenovir.

Since the #cornavirus pandemic was called, countries used different strategies to handle #COVID19. In general, there are 3 ways to handling a pandemic:
1) Do nothing to slow the spread of infections
2) Global coordination efforts to crush the virus
3) Delay and vaccinate
Approach 1:
Governments and communities do nothing or very little to slow infections in the community (e.g. like Sweden). As a result, we see a surge in the number of cases. Without much time for researchers to study the virus, doctors will know little about treatments.
Approach 1 (cont)
As a result, we see hospitals reaching capacity and death rates rising due to infections *OR* healthcare system collapse (e.g Italy and some US states). Once most of the population has been infected, herd immunity kicks in and will starve the virus of hosts
