@donlemon Absolutely IRRESPONSIBLE of @realDonaldTrump to accuse doctors, risking their lives treating #COVID19usa patients, of putting their deaths down to #COVID19/not their underlying conditions for financial gain - someone should EDUCATE @POTUS about #underlyingconditions!!
@realDonaldTrump FYI I have an underlying condition for Covid19: asthma - if I catch #Covid19Malaysia, I'll die from #COVID19, not asthma!!
#TantrumP2020, Global #COVIDIOT No.1!!

Someone from either #NIAID @NIH or #NCID @CDCgov should educate #TantrumP2020, Global #COVIDIOT No.1, #Virology/#VirusEpidemiology/#SARS_COV_2 #101 to stop the #SHIT that's coming out of his upper orifice!!
@realDonaldTrump @POTUS
@realDonaldTrump @POTUS
1) It ain't #WuhanVirus or #ChinaVirus - it's #SARS_COV_2!
2) #China DIDN'T SEND IT OUT to infect America - Global Travel did! 🙄
3) The DISEASE has been Christened #COVID19 (COronaVIrusDisease2019) by @WHO, for ease of reference!!
Oh?! The TIMING!!
Just my luck to switch on the TV at approximately 11.00 a.m. #MYT, to have it already tuned to #AlJazeera channel LIVE, at the exact moment #TantrumP2020, Global #COVIDIOT No. 1, was uttering his SHIT about #COVID19usa, caused by his SO-CALLED #WuhanVirus!

Your panel was SPOT ON! RE: APRE
@VP's speech (WHICH I COULDN'T AVOID SINCE EVERY INTERNATIONAL NEWS CHANNEL I get was carrying it): MY FIRST OBSERVATION as a fully trained & qualified Virologist:THE ABSENCE OF # FACEMASKS & #SocialDistancing!
They certainly behaved as if the #COVID19Pandemic was OVER IN THE USA!! Although @POTUS @FLOTUS were socially distanced from the crowd in front of them, the audience wasn't: from one another or even from @VP who gave one of them a fist: both without #facemasks!!
I can't wait for the statistics for #COVID19usa diagnostics, especially amongst the audience (many in the front row appear to be war injury-handicapped #WarVeterans) in the aftermath of today's public health fiasco!

Wow! The #ARSEHOLE spoke from #MOUNTOLIVE, #EASTJERUSALEM (CAPITAL OF THE FUTURE STATE OF PALESTINE) with the #DomeOfThRock of #AlQuds in the background!!
Lovely and moving speech by @FLOTUS! BEAUTIFUL!! 💖 😍
Now we know why @FLOTUS redesigned the #RoseGarden the way she did!! 😎

I'm not American and I've NEVER VOTED in my own country's Elections (as a matter of principle - because there never has been anyone I would have voted for)! But, listening to @JoeBiden as a fully trained and qualified Virologist ../2..
2) who has spent time as Guest Researcher at both Globally Renowned US Biomedical Institutions: #NCID, #NIH, Bethesda, where I had personally seen #DrAnthonyFauci, visiting LID, during the Laboratory (I was attached to)'s analysis of the Desert Shield Virus plus @CDCgov, Atlanta
..3) whilst on both Research Leave (Spring/Summer 1990-1992) & Sabbatical (1995 & 2008), resp. (from the Malaysian University where I was an Academic, teaching Virology to B.Sc. (Microbiology) undergraduates at the Faculty of Science for 30 years!

@KamalaHarris Please stick to what you know, as a fully qualified Virologist, I ask you not to make judgements about this virus you have absolutely no expertise on: FYI #SARSCoV2 is colour blind (it has no eyes and cannot differentiate Black from White or Latino)!!
#Covid19usa Image
The reason your people are disproportionately affected by #Covid19usa has nothing to do with the nature of this virus but the physiology of the host it entered (which it had no prior knowledge of, only deal with once inside)!
Ask yourself what is it about #USA that makes Blacks & Latinos especially susceptible to #SARSCoV2?! I can tell you: it ain't their skin colour! Our blood is the same colour and I suspect our bodies' cells (the surface of which the virus spike protein attaches to) are, too?! 🙄 Image

I EMPATHIZE with you (Remember the word "EMPATHY" ~ @MichelleObama, re: "America's Choice 2020: The Democratic National Convention" or the lack of it?! Re: #TantrumP2020, Global #COVIDIOT No.1). Take care! 👊 Image
I don't know if I can use similar terminology for my post mid-August 2015 21-day hospital admission for severe asthma recovery, complicated by prolonged insomnia, induced by the second component of my asthma medication (changed during the 6 weeks' follow up after discharge)!
Plus Adrenal Insufficiency (caused by the Discharge Medical Officer failing to taper down my 30mg a day Prednisolone, prescribed for 17 of the 21 days I was hospitalised, to bring down the inflammation in my lungs).

.@Oxfam warns half a billion people could be pushed into poverty by @coronavirus - between 6 & 8% of the global population could be forced into poverty as governments shut down entire economies to manage the spread of the virus
Thread /1…
Existing inequalities dictate the economic impact of the crisis. The poorest workers in all nations are less likely to be in formal employment,enjoy labour protections eg sick pay,or be able to work from home. Just 1 in 5 unemployed people have access to unemployment benefits
Women are likely to be hardest hit financially. Women make up 70% of health workers globally & provide 75% of unpaid care, looking after children, the sick & the elderly. Women are also more likely to be employed in poorly paid precarious jobs that are most at risk.

For the most part, asthma, hypertension, and diabetes are inequalities — differences that are a direct result of racism, poverty, disinvestment, and other structural barriers — not “pre-existing conditions.”
#publichealth #healthequity #covid19
Here’s an excellent article by @uche_blackstock that provides an overview of the barriers to equitable treatment and other inequalities that emerge during the #covid19 pandemic and similar disasters: #healthequity #phealth
Most US cities have a 15-year gap in life expectancy. Neighborhoods that have seen these catastrophically-high premature death rates for decades, due to inequality, racism, & incarceration, are also likely to be impacted by #covid19 at 2-5 times the rate of affluent areas. #nnip Image

How many times did Team @NYULangone save my life? Probably in the 1.5-2.0 range.

(a) When I came to the ER having trouble breathing from #Coronavirus aka #Covid19 and they put me on oxygen ASAP: 0.3 (not sure I would necessarily have died then & there).
(b) When they gave me an emergency intubation, put me on a ventilator, then successfully extubated me six days later: 1.0. This is a solid score -- it was like something out of "ER" or "Chicago Hope" -- and why ventilators are so crucial. #Covid_19
(c) General management of #coronavirus-caused respiratory problems: 0.4. (I'm 44 and generally healthy, but I did have asthma as a kid plus occasional exercise-induced asthma and bronchitis as an adult, which probably made me more susceptible to #Covid19.)

The Coronavirus crisis is getting worse by the day and many of us are driven by fear. I tweeted yesterday a clip that provides evidence the Coronavirus test equipment gives false positive results.
Click below to watch.

Don't get the CV swab TEST!  Most likely contains the CRSPR Virus itself

What we're going through is a physiological warfare to isolate us, to affect us mentally, financially and physically. If we continue to ALLOW the usurpers to violate our original state constitutions & the U.S. Constitution, they will take our basic freedoms away.

Revisiting Feb. JAMA published study.

CHI 20 yr old asymptomatic patient -cluster of 6.

1st known asymptomatic transmission w/asymptomatic patient reporting NO clincial symptoms & clear CTs.

She had:
2 CTs - 1/27 & 1/31
4 PCRs w/ only 1 positive
Tracks similarly w/ prior 10 yr old asymptomatic patient cluster in separate study

EXCEPT 10 yr old asymptomatic had CT indicating COVID19 w/ "ground glass" effect.

Asymptomatic patients may or may not show evidence of disease in CT scan.
CHI asymptomatic person cluster of 5 #COVID19
Wuhan visit Jan 10.

Only 1 of 4 PCRs positive...from nasal swab only.

PCRs widely known for false negatives w/ 30-60% accuracy depending on which gov't source issues numbers.

Stealth pathogen coupled w/ inaccuracy of PCRs?

Going through the numbers released by @WHO (in turn are numbers released by China) from Jan 20th to Jan 27th.

Based on the released numbers, I did a simple analysis on the day-by-day increase in # of confirmed cases and # of dead owing to #coronavirus Image
The findings:(day2day)

1. The # of infected ⬆️ by an average factor of 1.49 ⬇️ to 1.4 *

2. The # of dead ⬆️ by an average factor of 1.68 ⬇️ to 1.6 *

3. The Death:Infected ratio is currently around 2.7 (# of deaths/100 infections)

* ⬇️ owing to conservative estimates + factors
Based on above trends:

1. The # of infected & the # of dead may reach a significant figure as early as Feb 6th *

2. The "Death:Infected Ratio" may ⬆️ sharply after Feb 2nd *

* Not posting my numbers here.

3. #nCoV is faster in it's infection rates compared to #SARS
