I barely got sentences of explanation out and owner of Taste of India calmly stopped me and said, “What do you need? I will donate it all.” My eyes welled up. As they did when I picked up all the amazing, hot food for @UWVirology tonight so staff and volunteers could eat 1/3)

PSA from a good friend of mine, a PhD in nursing & professor at U of WA School of Medicine, after working a triple shift:

“Please please please stop hoarding masks! Unless you‘re providing direct care to patients coughing in your face, YOUR MASK WILL NOT PROTECT YOU
Staying home & washing your hands may protect you, but MASKS WILL NOT.

Do you know who your masks will protect? Those of us in the healthcare field who are RUNNING OUT OF MASKS because people keep stealing them from our waiting rooms & off of personal protection equipment carts.
All Seattle-area hospitals are now mask rationing because there is a critical shortage of masks here. And they are getting really hard to replace - BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE HOARDING THEM.

This means my nurses working double+ shifts get one mask per day to protect themselves.

People don’t understand the single greatest risk of #COVIDー19.

It is The Pinch.

Come along with me while I explain.

This will potentially affect you, your kids, you parents. They don’t even have to get sick. It all has to do with TOO MANY PATIENTS TOO SICK AT ONE TIME.
Here’s what we know. One person in a community gets sick and they infect others. Most people don’t get too sick and they get better.

They are not “safe” though. Read to the end.

Kevin Connolly, whose father-in-law is at Life Care Center in Kirkland, says if this facility is safe then he wants to see Vice President Mike Pence sit inside for an hour. #coronavirus #COVID19seattle
Connolly says he hasn't seen any CDC officials here, even though families were told they arrived Saturday.

Also says there's no actual quarantine here. Patients are walking around common areas, and only loosely encouraged to stay in their rooms.
A lot of confusion right now among families who want to take loved ones out of Life Care, but don't know if they can or where to take them if they could.

Families say they want test results and clear instructions.

Living (and especially being a parent) in Seattle right now feels like we are caught in the middle of a big psych experiment and I can’t remember having signed the informed consent form??!? 🦠 🦠 🦠 #CoronaVirusSeattle #COVID19seattle
I can think of a whole bunch of federal officials who have not undergone human subjects training, in fact it appears they have undergone no training whatsoever

1. A short #seattlecoronavirus #Covid19Seattle thread.

I would like to encourage my friends, colleagues, and neighbors in Seattle to seriously avoiding non-essential travel at this juncture, so as to slow spread to the rest of the country.
2. Current estimates based on genetic data for the known Seattle-area cases have 80 to 1500 cases locally (median around 600), with a doubling time of approximately one week barring additional control measures.

3. For context, this evening I received this decision tree from Whitman County (Pullman, WA area). Seattle is considered a heavily-impacted area. Travelers from Seattle thus ought to (1) notify the local health dept., (2) self-quarantine for 14 days, and (3) not travel further.

1 Like many other teams, we often work together in person. As we do more remote work in light of #COVID19seattle, we're going to do more and more of our work in writing.

This poses a unique opportunity and challenge for building and sustaining a culture of belonging. Thread >
2 Whether you use e-mail, Slack, other tools, or some combination, a lot of collaboration that might have previously happened in person is likely to move to writing over the next few weeks.
3 We use video-conferencing technologies like Zoom and Slack video and we do talk live. But when we’re all in different physical locations, we’re collaborating by writing more than ever.

HAPPY STORY ALERT: @UW @UWVirology has developed it's own #COVID19 test & expects to be testing 1k-1.5k people per day by the end of the week.

Preparation began @ end of 2019, *just in case* it reached U.S.

That decision will save lives.

Go Dawgs.…
They have plans to ramp up testing capacity "substantially beyond" the 1,000-1,500 per day should demand require it.

Seek to move towards a "single swab requirement" which will save resources.

#CoronavirusSeattle #Coronavirus #COVIDー19 #COVID19seattle
Can confirm, this story is bringing multiple Seattleites and UW alums to tears with pride.

#SeattleStrong #GoDawgs

I feel lucky to be a Seattleite.

I'm in the Seattle area. I'm also almost 66 y/o and have asthma. Because of the #COVID19seattle outbreak, I'm literally afraid to go out of my home.

I know that those who work paycheck to paycheck don't have guaranteed sick leave and thus come to work sick.

I know our 1/
#CDC has failed us. How do I know? Because I read this:…

And I see South Korea testing 10,000 people per day - even using drive through testing as an option.

In South Korea, all people have healthcare as a RIGHT.…
