COVID and Our Very Long Night: A Thread 🧵

I suppose I'm mostly doing this thread for my own sake. This is the time to look upon what was, to come to some understanding of the past year.

The idea is that we go into next year with a little more wisdom. #COVID19 #COVIDCanada 1/
This is going to be an extremely off-the-cuff ramble. Posting on social media is often likened to shouting into a void. Hey, why NOT use it for a little catharsis?

The difference, of course, is that there is no void. There are only people. 2/
I never expected that Twitter, of all the places on the interwebs, would become a rock I'd cling to over the course of this pandemic.

I never expected to meet many, many people who I am eager to meet in the real world.

(And so help me, I will meet ALL of you amazing peeps.) 3/

“As Nova Scotia reports *38* new cases of #COVID19–the largest single-day case increase in nearly one year—NS's premier announced tighter restrictions in the #Halifax area...”

**cries in Alberta**

#nspoli #cdnpoli #onpoli…
For the record, “Alberta reported 1,699 new cases of COVID-19 [yesterday]” more than 10x the per capita infection rate of NS.

#ableg #nspoli…
Yesterday, as cases rose again, the Premier tweeted about how great this summer will be.

Over 2,000 Albertans have died from #COVID19AB with just 10 people being allowed at their funerals. #ableg #FiretheUCP

If I read #federalbudget of #Canada Correctly
@cafreeland committed $12M over THREE YEARS to TALKING about how to implement a disability benefit some point in the future (maybe)
(But $13M to ensure MAID happens)

So no #inclusion & #inclusive recovery for #ODSP #CPPD #SAID #AISH
At this rate, with what the provinces are doing to #PWD @JustinTrudeau @cafreeland You won't have to worry about #MAID or a #Disabilities Benefit cause the problem is going to "Solve itself"
They Can't Afford to live NOW Damn it !
3 weeks to invent #CERB
4 YEARS to maybe help PWD
How many more times are they supposed to say
"Maybe next year, people will care"
How many more decades ?
How many more wasted PWD lives because
Canada won't put the well being disabled people equal to those who are "Able" ?

How many more GENERATIONS @JustinTrudeau ?

Dangerous #covid19 disinformation in Canada & elsewhere. A thread. #cdnpoli #CovidCanada
Let’s begin with AIER, The American Institute For Economic Research. #AIER is a libertarian “think tank”, largely funded by the Koch Network. AIER is behind such large scale propaganda offensives as “The Great Barrington Declaration”. A thoroughly debunked piece of disinformation
AIER disinformation has been so successful & pervasive that even formerly respected authors peddle their nonsense.
Incidentally, Naomi Wolfe happens to be a “Visiting Senior Fellow” at #AIER. #cdnpoli #COVID19 #COVIDdisinformation

COVID-19 Modeling.

Is this forecast realistic in spite we are entering into the 2nd half of the Flu Season Cycle?

And the "failure" of Linear analysis.

8-Chart Thread.

Linear chart of Canada COVID-19. I want to point how "misleading" this chart is. It does not "capture" the true ROC, as there is an equal distance between the data; each data price change on the chart is represented by the same vertical distance or movement up the scale.
Why use a logarithmic scale? Because it accurately displays trends. The scale is essential for timely and accurate use of trendline analysis movement; prices tend to accelerate in the direction of the prevailing trend; they rise faster at the end of a rising trend.

It seems Air Canada has managed to convince the federal government to employ rapid testing as an opt out of quarantine on the basis of preliminary results from a massively flawed study.

Seems like a bad idea. @BillBlair @marcomendicino @celliottability @IrfanDhalla

First, Australia and New Zealand remain the gold standards for the “Western world” in regards to COVID response. Both had mandatory hotel (not home w/relatives) quarantine at port of arrival, before going anywhere, mandatory testing AND drastically reduced int’l flights. 2/n
Australia diverted ALL international flights out of Victoria when Melbourne’s numbers skyrocketed in 2nd wave and cut total international arrivals by 40% concurrent with other restrictions. This is what happened after. 3/n

Alberta and BC are flattening. Skipped weekend reported lumped into Monday accounts for the spikes (3 day totals) but rolling weekly true trend point is now in better focus.

In major cities, the weekly case rates continue to grow out of the "low" range of less 7 weekly cases per 100K. This is Canada-wide, not an isolated outbreak or two. Image
