Like many, I’ve had some extra fee time these days... After rebinging @theofficenbc and #theofficereunion I was inspired.

A thread of Trump’s handling of the #coronavirus (#COVID19) pandemic, as told by Michael Scott. #TheOffice
Way back in 2018, Trump decided it was a good idea to disassemble the #Pandemic Response Team – created by the Obama administration in case there was “an airborne disease that is deadly.” This can’t go wrong! #thiswaspreventable
Trump does nothing to replace this. He plays golf and insults people on Twitter – just the normal things that presidents do right?

Let's talk about the UK government's #coronavirus #contacttracing app, which is being trialled on the Isle of Wight as of tomorrow. @MattHancock, the UK govt's Secretary of State for Health & Social Care, was promoting the app on #R4Today this morning.
Matt Hancock urged everyone on the Isle of Wight to download the app, saying it would be an "incredibly important part" of ensuring #CoronavirusLockdownUK restrictions could be eased. /2…
The idea behind these apps - which are in use in other countries already, though the take-up is nowhere higher than 20% - is that it works on your smartphone via your Bluetooth connection & uses your smartphone's ability to measure distance between it & another smartphone. /3

The #US and its satellites countries and political leaders around the world are preparing a vast campaign to accuse #China of the #coronavirus spread. The aim is to squeeze China's economy and prevent it from becoming the world economic superpower. +
#China is managing not only to survive but to re-boost its economy during the #CoronavirusLockdown while most continents' economy will suffer dearly the consequences of the lockdown. This is scaring the American leadership for two reasons:
1. to blame others for their incompetence & lack of readiness. #US learned about the virus months before its continent is hit. Trump refused to take measures saying it is a hoax... it will disappear...we r doing well when he realises the deceased r piling up, he accused #China +

CM #UddhavThackeray addresses state: We are all waiting for this war to get over. Like I had said earlier, if we could have seen our enemy, we could have won this war a long time ago.

#COVID19 #COVID #CoronaInMaharashtra #Coronavirus #CoronavirusLockdown #CoronavirusOutbreak
CM #UddhavThackeray: But this enemy is invisible. And another factor is that this enemy is using our own people to spread its infection. Determination, strength, patience all of these will stand us in good stead.

#COVID19 #COVID #CoronaInMaharashtra #CoronavirusLockdown
CM Uddhav Thackeray: Tomorrow we will complete 6 weeks since we have been in a #lockdown. Many are constantly looking at numbers and raising questions so I want to place some numbers in front of you.

A day in the life of a #COVID-19 #healthworker in India. A #Thread.

#indiafightscorona #healthwarriors
What does it mean to be a frontline warrior amid the #Coronavirus ( #COVID-19 ) pandemic? It means being away from home for weeks, staying awake for days and nights,
dealing with emotionally vulnerable patients and a sense of timelessness – when the clock ceases to exist and the patients’ recovery is all that matters.

THREAD 1/6 The push to single out @FoxNews for downplaying #cornavirus checks a lot of boxes for the destructively partisan Left: 1) Bashes a usual suspect 2) Covers up all of the media's complicity 3) Keeps the focus off the more important/harder job of offering solutions...
2/6 ... here is a nice collage assembled by @dbongino that shows just some of the non-FOX outlets who poured cold water on the virus:
3/6 ... in my columns, you'll notice I push for solutions & better policies connected to every issue, including #COVIDー19 ... that includes my last @CNBC column where I called for a national lockdown many days before others did:…

What are the roots political human sacrifice (#PHS) in Western Tradition. Save this thread, I have a feeling this will be important information very soon.
#PHS has roots deep into prehistory but this thread will cover the most influential forms of human sacrifice starting in the Etruscan era, creating the basis for Rome, England, and the US. So let’s begin with #RexNemorensis…
In his book series, The Golden Bough, James George Frasier lays out an anthropological study in comparative religions based in a ritual human sacrifice at a place called Lake Nemi or “Diana’s Mirror”. Frasier claims that this birth death and renewal is central for all mythology.

"दिल्ली से आए लोगों ने बताया कि दिल्ली सरकार ने बिजली-पानी के कनेक्शन काट दिए। दिल्ली सरकार के अधिकारी बक़ायदा एनाउंसममेंट कर अफ़वाह फैलाते रहे कि यूपी बार्डर पर बसें खड़ी हैं, जो यूपी और बिहार ले जाएंगी।

सीएम योगी ने रात भर जाग कर 1000 से ज्यादा बसें की व्यवस्था कराई।"
Wow !!

Scenes at the Delhi-UP border today. Complete failure of State and Central administrations, to not have foreseen this, to not doing anything about this.

Suffice it to say that lockdown would begin in earnest after a week. #CoronvirusLockdown.
Every large State is grappling with reverse migration. Care for migrant labour should be the priority right now. Close coordination between States is a must.

We need to accept the fact that the real lockdown would begin after a week. #CoronavirusLockdown
Maharashtra, second only to Delhi in net- in-migration, is not witnessing the scenes Delhi is. What is @OfficeofUT doing right?

Note the size of Delhi's migrant population. It would be calamitous if @LtGovDelhi and @ArvindKejriwal do not get a grip on the situation very soon.

Stocking up due to #lockdown21?
Here are a few tips that will help you survive the lockdown.
1. Stock up on basic, nutrient-dense foods

Keep rajma (kidney beans) and chana (chickpeas) handy. “If nothing else, these can always be made into a chaat, as a snack."…
2. Some must have masalas:

Powdered haldi (turmeric), dhaniya (coriander), jeera (cumin), mirchi (chilli) and hing (asafoetida), as well as whole mustard and whole jeera.…

The Charts in here are shocking - Coronavirus Deaths by U.S. State and Country Over Time: Daily Tracker - The New York Times…
As I lay in bed recovering from my near heart attack from #COVID2019 - I wanted to share some charts from @nytimes to illustrate what’s going on. First is a chart of the rate of deaths by country - the USA is doubling every 3 days
Second, the growth rate of new reported deaths is rising only in the USA at this point - a key aspect of this is, how far into lockdown countries are & how long there have been infections in the country since deaths lag infection by about 4 weeks on average

THREAD: So here’s what went down in #Goa after Sunday’s #JanataCurfew that was put in place by the Centre as a trial run to the #CoronavirusLockdown.

Without notice, on March 22 itself, @goacm announced that the state govt would be extending the curfew by three more days. (1)
We are informed that there is no need to panic, as groceries and other essential services wouldn’t be impacted. The only difference being that instead of staying open all day, grocery stores would now be open only from 6am to 11am. That was the first bad move. (2)
The very next morning, people thronged to the stores. Because stores were open for such a small window of time, everyone was out trying to get supplies at the same time. Many opted to hoard, while many others chose to be responsible citizens and buy only what was needed. (3).

A top Twitter influencer does a throwaway tweet on India's inadequate Rejuvenation package (1.7 lac crore for 120+ crore pop)

The responses he gets

•I plug a Swarajya article
•Non H desis pitch & moan about the GoI
•Desi Leftie women start "cow piss"
•Americans are clueless
India under the present admin runs one of the largest social development programmes in the world for its most vulnerable

But the Western press & Gungadeens know that success, prosperity & social upliftment don't get eyeballs or sponsors

This gets buried under atrocity junk
We're doing a way better job, with our underpaid doctors, our under armed police, & our allegedly falling-apart infra, with the #CoronavirusLockdown than many other countries

Yet, we're using their examples not to pull them down but as warning to our folk, without any malice!

मूर्खाधिपतियों को चैन नहीं है। पहले पूछ रहे थे कि मोदी कुछ कर क्यों नहीं रहा? अब बोल रहे हैं कि 21 दिन बहुत ज्यादा होते हैं। अब मैं बताता हूँ कि जब सरकार तेज़ी से एक्शन लेने में लगी थी और तुम्हें मीडिया ने कुछ बताया तक भी नहीं था,...Thread 1/20

#ChineseVirus19 #ReliefPackage
तब तुम्हारे नेता क्या कर रहे थे। वो 30 दिसंबर 2019 का दिन था जब चीन ने 'एक प्रकार के न्यूमोनिया' की बात स्वीकार की और 7 जनवरी 2020 को WHO को कोरोना के बारे में बताया। भारत सरकार कब एक्टिव हुई, इसका आपको आईडिया भी है? ठीक इसके अगले दिन।


#Lockdown21 #CoronaVillains
ठीक इसके अगले दिन। 8 जनवरी को स्वास्थ्य मंत्रालय की 'टेक्निकल एक्सपर्ट ग्रुप' की बैठक में मंथन हुआ।

भारत में कोरोना वायरस का पहला मामला ही 30 जनवरी को आया। यानी सरकार उसके 3 हफ्ते पहले से इस बारे में एक्शन लेने लगी थी।...

You know how you’re all staying home to protect seniors and disabled people?
Guess what they’re doing to help disabled people? You know, the ‘most vulnerable’? THE TRUTH - a thread. #auspol #NDIS #HighRiskCovid19 #coronavirusaustralia #coronavirus #CoronavirusLockdown #COVID19au
2/ The unions, Labor and NDS have negotiated for registered disability service providers to get a 10% loading fee - money taken out of our (already underfunded) funding plus an advance payment with a 10 day cancellation policy.
Most of our services have been cut or withdrawn.
3/ People are still being packed into sheltered workshops with 500 people in them, all over Australia. If they withdraw, they lose that funding because it’s a ‘stated support’. And their two dollar an hour wage. But respite centres and activities are closing down.
