Another daily record has been set by #India's #Coronavirus #epidemic. Yesterday there were a whopping 78,761 new infections taking the total to above 3.5Million well on course for the 4 Million prediction by 5 September.
Over the last 5 days the compound daily growth rate has been 2.27% per day. That sounds tiny but such is the power of compound growth that at 2.27% per day the doubling time (to 7 million cases) is 30 days. So we COULD be looking at 7 Million by early Oct.
In the last 14 days we added almost a MIllion new cases (well 9.53 lakhs actually) That figure is more than the cumulative total number of infections in all countries except Brazil America, and by a narrow whisker, Russia.

Have you heard the story about 'The #epidemic that wasn't'? These bizarre events took place in 2007, is a hospital in New Hampshire. Some things might sound familiar, living through the strange times today. It started when 1 of the doctors, had bad cough that lasted for weeks.
A colleague, specialized in infectious disease wondered if it was the start of whooping cough epidemic. When other health workers got the same severe cough, the idea of an epidemic was taken serious. If true containment measures are urgent as it is dangerous to babies and weak
patients. For months everyone was convinced the #epidemic was happening. Almost 1000 initial tests were done and 142 were diagnosed positive. All were given antibiotics and a vaccine. Eight months later the staff was informed it was false alarm. Not a single case was confirmed

#NithyanandaSatsang with The Supreme Pontiff Bhagwan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam

Today's #Satsang keyword:

The delusional arrogance of humanity - do not allow delusional arrogance to ruin your life.
#SHRIKAILASA LIVE | #NithyanandaSatsang #pandemicFatigue

Do not make life decisions in the delusional arrogance of pandemic fatigue (sans. : #throbhavaSankalpa).

Humans face #pandemicfatigue many times in their life - not just during this corona pandemic.
#SHRIKAILASA LIVE #NithyanandaSatsang |

The old world is literally losing its branding over humanity.

The delusional ganging up called society, country, nation is melting down.
All the delusional ideas are melting down.

How does a city's trauma system come together to both prepare for the expected surge of the #COVIDー19 #pandemic & manage the ongoing #epidemic of #gunviolence & other trauma?

Through a great collaborative effort, we published the #Philadelphia experience in @JTraumAcuteSurg

The full paper is published ahead of print here:…

It represents the importance of #teamwork in ensuring a robust, rapid, coordinated effort to manage an evolving threat

Our publication timing coincides with a brutal #July4th weekend where #Philadelphia saw over 30 people shot including several children

But how did the #pandemic and #socialdistancing mandate affect trauma volume in our centers?

Updated 300-day forecast for the #Canadian #COVID19 #epidemic based on @GovCanHealth data (as at 11:00am EDT May 13, 2020) using a SEIR epidemiological model. I’ll try to update daily. Also included is a prediction based on a LOGISTIC model (see below). #COVIDCanada #COVID2019
Here is a prediction for the epi-curve based on an ad hoc Logistic model for the cumulative number of infected cases (as at 11:00am EDT May 13, 2020) for the #Canadian #COVID19 #epidemic. It will be interesting to see how these two predictions compare over time.

The government declared #COVID-19 as a “notified disaster” under the #Disaster Management Act, 2005. As per Section 10 of the Act, the Health Ministry has directed National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority to regulate the price and availability of #sanitizers and #masks. (1/n)
The prevention of fake news over social media is also being controlled by the #government.
It is for the first time that under Section 6(2)(i) of the Act, a national lockdown was declared by the National Disaster Management Authority and implemented in the States u/s 38. (2/n)
This affects the freedom of movement and assembly of citizens with the exception of provision of essential goods, but is required for the prevention of the spread of #COVID19. Hence, the police are permitted to book violators of the lockdown under the provisions of the IPC. (3/n)

Thread . Lots of positive energy towards #ContactTracing from the tech sector, but not sure we need more/better apps for #COVID19 #ContactTracing is much more than just maps, which we also have plenty of. Hybrid tech:human approaches are essential. #ClickandMortar
Identifying and mapping #contacts is a core goal of #ContactTracing but there are important details that cannot be scraped from passive location & interaction data such as the specific nature of the contact individuals, disease and clues about #viral load & infectious dose
These details cannot be adequately determined without collecting data that would clearly be an invasion of #privacy unless adequate #InformedConsent is utilized with EVERY subject and #contact.

More info:…
Some background from Lauren Ancel Meyers @meyerslab about the #epidemiology modeling community's efforts to produce #pandemic projections for the @CDC — first about #influenza and then, suddenly and with the models incomplete, pivoting to #COVID19:
Aggregate data from travel in and out of #Wuhan in early 2020. To infer the pace of the #epidemic, @meyerslab and colleagues used info on timing & location from first cases in other areas, travel volume to/from Wuhan, and gave an early doubling rate for #COVID19:

#Taiwan says @WHO failed to act on #coronavirus transmission warning ~ @primroseriordan @KatrinaManson @KathrinHille @clivecookson

Taiwan said its #doctors had heard from #mainland colleagues that medical staff were getting ill — a sign of human-to-human #transmission. 1/n
#Taipei officials said they reported this to both International Health Regulations (#IHR), a @WHO framework for exchange of #epidemic prevention and response data between 196 countries, and #Chinese health authorities on December 31. 2/n

“While the #IHR’s internal website provides a platform for all countries to share information on the #epidemic and their response, none of the information shared by our country’s [@Taiwan_CDC] is being put up there,” said Chen Chien-jen, #Taiwan’s vice-president. 3/n

Pl retweet >> Ventilator, the lifesavers in #Covid19 epidemic r hugely in short supply. @sonalasthana is a leading surgeon @ Aster Healthcare, Bangalore. He's driving an effort into 3D printing of splitters to augment ventilator capacity👇

Project link… /1
Splitters are a quick, simple way to 4X no of patients each ventilator supports. The designs are #opensource & they can be printed locally (remotely) by doctors & hospitals. Demo video

I along with @jboutelle @rashmi are supporting Sonal in his effort. /2

THREAD - #COVIDー19 #coronavirus #SARS_COV_2 #FLU Do your home work on #VitaminD3 and #VitaminC. Not enough money in it? Why isn’t anyone promoting it? What’s the 25OHD serum levels of those infected or that have died?…
As an A1AD carrier and 15+yearly sufferer of chronic #bronchitis needing multiple antibiotics every year prior to ‘09 #swineflu scare - I thought if I got It I wouldn’t survive.
I read up on# respiratory issues and the benefits of #VitaminD3. So I started a 5000iu/day regime in ‘09 raising my 25OHD serum levels to 60 ng/ml. I have not had #bronchitis an antibiotic or the #flu since, no longer needed an inhaler for my asthma. Just wanted to put this out

The Paris cholera #epidemic of 1832 killed at least 18,000 people in 5 months (~80,000 in rest of France). Nobody knew what caused the disease. Politics, cultural anxieties, and social injustice (then as now) all exacerbated the crisis. 1/n
In the nineteenth century, #pandemics spread a bit more slowly than they do today. Cholera "reached" European Russia in 1830, moved across central Europe (Hegel died of it in 1831), then appeared in Britain, France, USA. It may have inspired Poe's "Mask of Red Death." 2/n
The first Paris deaths in the 1832 cholera #epidemic were in late March. Already by mid-April, gravediggers couldn't keep up with the numbers of dead and artillery horses were drafted to pull the hearses. 3/n

1. Just wanted to mention something about the coronavirus #COVID19 situation, for anyone unfamiliar with how federal/state governments, hospitals, first responders, school systems, etc. prepare for specific types of emergencies.

You may already know this, but just in case...
2. In a situation like this, it's good advice to say "don't freak out". That's not to say people shouldn't worry about #COVID19 at all. The whole point of emergency preparedness is to "prepare". Regardless of what 45* says, remember that fed & state governments ARE preparing.
3. Federal, state, and local governments, as well as hospitals and first responders, ALREADY have "standard operating procedures" in the event of specific types of emergency scenarios. Just like they have plans for natural disasters, they have an "#epidemic preparedness" plans.
