Dr. Fauci, in an interview on @ABC, says "We need to be careful that we don't talk about America in totality" when we talk about re-opening the country "because there are so many levels of outbreak."
Dr. Fauci tells @DavidMuir that "there are so many areas of the country that are more attuned to get ready for a return to normality than others." He says it will be a "rolling re-entry," "not like a light switch going on."

Dr. Fauci says "we need to have contact tracing IMMEDIATELY after identifying an infected person, not many many days after."

...AND YOU APPLAUD

We are seeing the most draconian measures enforced at all levels of government that we've ever seen in our lifetimes, and yet rather than being alarmed by the things going on, so many of you applaud.
People are being arrested for spending too much time outside, and you applaud. Pastors are being arrested for daring to hold church services, and you applaud. A child's birthday party is raided by police, and you applaud.
A young woman is ticketed for going on a leisurely drive alone because it's deemed "non-essential travel", and you applaud.

In Philadelphia the number of cases is NOT being reported accurately and any day now there is going to be an explosion of numbers. Test results are too slow and death certificates are not necessarily being issued as #COVID19, but respiratory and/or heart failure, pneumonia.
Plus, last week I discovered while researching a story that the majority of deaths here--nearly two-thirds--are POC. Getting data from communities of color and testing in those communities is slower. But that stat is not being reported.
#CoronavirusPandemic
Here are today's numbers for the tri-state:
PA: 11,150 cases, 150 deaths (far too low)
NJ: 37,505 cases, 917 deaths (also low)
DE: 673 cases, 14 deaths (seems low)

So apparently this is happening right now.

Thread:

Novartis is a multinational pharmaceutical company based in Switzerland. By both market capitalization and sales it is one of the largest such companies in the world.

On March 20th, they offered to donate 130 million doses of hydroxychloroquine.

novartis.com/news/media-relโ€ฆ
Donald Trump has been blatantly touting hydroxychloroquine & chloroquine without any supporting scientific evidence.

Today, despite Norvartis offering to donate 130 million doses, Trump announced an additional distribution of 29 million doses.

Listening to these stories of people dying from their loved ones is just gutting.
@ErinBurnett is one of the toughest reporters in the business and she is crying on screen from her guest's story. And I am just sobbing.

WHY CAN'T YOU JUST STAY INSIDE? WHY?
#COVID19US
I'm sure Burnett saw herself in this woman--they are the same age, both mothers of three. There was no reason for this 42 year old teacher to have died and left his wife a widow and his kids fatherless. This virus is just crushing so many families.
#CoronavirusPandemic
There is going to be so much resentment building across the country as more people die. It will be natural to blame those who refused to stay inside for our loved ones' sickness and/or death. Everyone is a carrier unless proven otherwise.

From my most recent reporting in Philadelphia: Nearly two-thirds of #COVID19 deaths are BIPOC.
I will be writing more about this as I get more details. Philly is majority black. My story is evolving on Philly & South Jersey (Camden is majority Latinx, etc).
#CoronavirusPandemic
From NJ, @PhilMurphyNJ is expressing his frustration that folks keep demanding why NJ/US is not SK. Not meaningful when compliance is still such an issue. "The need for compliance," is critical. Murphy says he talked with Dr. Fauci last night. Said he was "extremely helpful."
Murphy says he appreciates everyone who is "being non-partisan" and putting people over politics.

Murphy also says he hopes folks applying for unemployment that they processed 35k cases Thursday and to try to be patient, it's gonna happen, including extra $600, it will go thru.

The virus continues to spread with almost 80,000 new confirmed cases yesterday...
Although we crossed the million confirmed cases mark yesterday, it will probably take another five to six days to reach the million active cases...
Globally, we have been adding about 55,000 new active cases every day for the last three days...

OK! @ErinMcCreary and I have been giving weekly #COVIDใƒผ19 updates to the entirety of @UPMCnews. Until I figure out whether or not I can post the recording, here is a synopsis (thread follows). @IDPittStop @IDPittStop
Fever (defined as > 38C or > 100.4 F) in #COVIDใƒผ19 only happens in about HALF of cases. Do not rely on fever to rule #coronavirus in or out. The โ€œmore than 90 percentโ€ data come from the papers from China, which defined fever as > 37.3โ€”itโ€™s in the methods!
Most (80% or so) have non-severe disease. Older patients are more likely to have severe disease. There's all this chatter about "comorbidities" (high blood pressure etc) being associated with severe disease, but tbh I wonder if this is just a signal of advanced age.

๐Ÿ“ŒSo get this, folks: I am a month behind on my mortgage and they just sent someone TO MY HOUSE to talk to me about my mortgage. Let me just add to this that I live in a POOR BLACK neighborhood. So you know they ASSUME I am black.

This AFTER the bill was signed yesterday.
How many other folks got a visit? When our city is on freaking lock down? Are you kidding me? Like I would expose my family to a stranger during a pandemic? The plan is to threaten black homeowners in poor neighborhoods.
