🚨BREAKING: Trump didn’t disclose a POSITIVE rapid #COVID19 test result he received *on Thursday* before appearing on Fox News when he didn’t reveal it either, instead claiming he was awaiting results.

Trump tried to #coverup having tested positive.🤬…
Trump's 1st positive was a "rapid antigen" #coronavirus test (quick, not as sensitive as PCR). His 2nd, confirmatory test used PCR–amplifies genetic material from the virus (more sensitive, not as quick).

Trump KNEW of his 1st positive, but said NOTHING.
😱As the #coronavirus spread among the people closest to him, Trump asked an adviser NOT to disclose results of their own positive test. “Don’t tell anyone,” he said.

This is RECKLESS and DANGEROUS. Contact tracing #COVID19 cases is crucial to containing a #CoronavirusOutbreak.

It has been just over nine months since the first cases of #COVID19 were reported in #Wuhan in December 2019, and thanks to the relentless work of the global scientific community we are learning numerous new traits of the novel coronavirus every other day.

Now, the latest data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other health organisations suggest that pregnant women with #COVID19 might have an increased risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes such as premature births or stillbirths.

The production of the Oxford coronavirus vaccine named Covidshield—one of the frontrunner #COVID19 vaccine candidates in the world—has begun in India.

Initial estimates suggest at least one billion doses of the vaccine will be produced in India, which would make the country the largest producer of the COVID-19 vaccine on the planet.

This weekend has been unusual and unfortunately it is becoming normal. How do you look at this virus and see anything but devastation? It is awful!

I want to cry each time a new patient or coworker tests positive.

And as we wait for our weekly test results an odd sense of fear, denial, anger, and relief go through me each week as I continue to test negative.

Then guilt floods me, as those around me test positive.

And I wonder ... when will it be me? What will happen then? /2
What will happen to my family who depends on my income to survive. What will happen to me if I get this virus? Will I end up on a vent? Will I be around to see my daughter grow up? What will happen if I am not, then I realize, "so this is what it means to face your mortality" /3

1/ Many lawmakers are citing preventing preventing "deaths of despair" (drug use, overdose, alcoholism, suicide) as the rationale to reopen prematurely. @meganranney & @drjessigold have written a must-read piece in @statnews addressing this. A thread 👇…
2/ First, while we have ample evidence of the impact of #COVID19 (>100,000 deaths, ~4x as many hospitalizations lasting 1-2 weeks, a lasting debility among younger adults that has yet to be quantified), we don't have any data yet on deaths of despair

3/ Second, the economic conditions that lead to deaths of despair tend not to be temporary. For example,
@atheendar found that it took 5 years after factory closures to see full impact on opioid overdoses…

You saw Sonam Wangchuk urging Indians to #BoycottChineseProducts, from softwares to hardwares?
I am with him.

Here's how all Indian MOTHERS can make this happen on a large scale.

Bcoz maa ka mara thappad acche acchon ko sahi kar deta hai (China, are you listening?)
All these toys (pic in previous tweet) belong to my little boy. Some I bought, some came to him as gifts from loving uncles and aunties.
All of these are #MadeInChina.

It is astounding how the children's toy market in India is flooded with Chinese products.
All types of toys... Cars, soft toys, books, battery-operated toys, and even rubber squeeze toys that are made in China are out there in the toy shop round the corner in your area.

Some are cheap, some are expensive.
And we buy it blindly for our kids or someone else's.

🚨ALERT: @realDonaldTrump his #coronavirus task force are pushing @CDCgov officials to change how they count #COVID19-related deaths and are pushing for revisions that could lead to *far fewer deaths being counted*.

Trump is trying to cook the books.🤬…
⚠️Analysis of “excess deaths” that occurred in hot zones during the #CoronavirusPandemic estimate that the *actual* #COVID19 death toll is 1.5- to 2-fold HIGHER than reported.

Yet Trump is trying to spin the official death toll down to pad his stats.🤬
👇🏼Earlier in the #CoronavirusOutbreak in the US the excess death toll was nearly DOUBLE the number of reported #coronavirus-related deaths, due to lack of #COVID19 testing. And systems were overwhelmed, leading to people dying at home with no testing.

I had to fly this week due to a family need. Here is what I learned on my international and domestic flights returning to the US from the UK (thread):
#fridaymorning #FridayThoughts #friday #COVID19 #COVIDー19
1/ To be honest, I wasn't excited about re-entry to travel. It felt too soon. I travel A LOT, mostly international, and am more comfortable on a plane than in a car most often. Lets start w/ #Uber to Heathrow. Really nice driver, no PPE whatsoever. Then...
2/ My driver took my suitcase by the handle, placed it in trunk. Normally SO appreciated, but I cringed seeing his bare hands touch the handles without gloves. Yikes - the #NewNormal has me make a mental note to wipe down handles upon arrival at Heathrow.

(1/x) As an ER doc I have treated many patients who lost jobs due to the #CoronavirusOutbreak & they don't look like the protesters in the news
- chest pain/anxiety after losing job as a cook
- alcohol withdrawal after running out of $
- depression and suicidal thoughts

2/ There’s ample evidence that beside the economic impact, that job and income loss leads to enormous public health impacts. For example, when auto plants shut down, there are an additional ~9 opioid overdose/100,000 people five years down the line
3/ And individual-level poverty alone is associated with an estimated 130,000 deaths per year in the U.S. More job and income loss and worsening poverty will lead to loss of health insurance and contribute to worsening mortality in the short and long term…

China’s communist government KNEW there was human-to-human transmission of the Wuhan Virus in early December. They arrested 7 doctors in Wuhan for spreading “malicious gossip” and forced them to recant.Health professionals were being infected in hospitals. #ChinaKNEW
They had 104 reported cases and 19 deaths in DECEMBER IN WUHAN. Their heroic health professionals were being infected in the hospitals while treating patients. THEY KNEW DAMN WELL ABOUT HUMAN TO HUMAN TRANSMISSION and then LIED to WHO about it. #ChinaLiedPeopleDied #ChinaKNEW
Then...The Wuhan Institute Of Virology applied for a patent on Gilead’s Remdesivir on Jan 21st. A literal attempt to STEAL Gilead’s IP for the world to see. The CCP’s actions in and around the Wuhan Virus 🦠 outbreak have been nothing short of CRIMINAL. #CoronavirusOutbreak

CCTV: @SecPompeo Is Turning Himself into a Common Enemy for Mankind
#CCP's mouthpiece #CCTV says on Apr 27, "Pompeo, a 'political #virus" spreader, is turning himself into a common enemy for mankind. Since the outbreak of the #pandemic, as the chief diplomat, Pompeo has done...
...nothing to prevent or control the #virus but has screamed loudest to smear #China. He has shown zero professional ethics or responsibilities. Instead, he constantly spreads the political virus, tramples on the bottom line of humankind's morality, and has reduced himself to.. obstacle for disease control, and an accomplice for the spreading of the virus..."

🚨In the early weeks (3/1–4/4) of the #CoronavirusOutbreak, the US had ~15,400 excess deaths—above average for that time of year—nearly DOUBLE the 8,128 deaths attributed to #COVID19 then.

Our current 55,843 #coronavirus deaths may actually be >100,000.😰…
⚠️@NYGovCuomo acknowledged that #NewYork’s #coronavirus death toll is “not an accurate total number of deaths, in my opinion...That number is going to go up. Those deaths are only hospitalization or nursing home deaths. That does NOT have what are called at-home deaths.”
A handful of states recently began reporting “probable” #COVID19 deaths (not confirmed by #coronavirus test), but most states have NOT. For example, #NewYork state, unlike New York City, has not.
