A short thread WHY all of the effort in #Nigeria in the fight against #COVID19 may likely end in futility. A part of this is due to poor testing and the second part, nonadherance to non-pharmaceutical interventions by #Nigerians.

How about the 2M test target by July ending? 1/6
About 86-days ago, the NCDC set a 2million test target for COVID19 test in #Nigeria. In the next 96-hours or so, the 3 month deadline would have elapsed. And how far have we fared?

Samples Tested = 266,323 (26th/07/2020).
Total confirmed = 40,532(26th/07/2020).
...Number of Testing Sites = from ~3 to 60. ✅

How does poor testing leads to effort in futility? So far we have tested 266k+ of a 205million people & total confirmed sits at 40,532. Poor testing means, confirmed negative will again mix-up with untested population. 3/6

🚨🚨PLEASE STATE YOUR REASON TO WEAR A #facemask or #facecoverings 🚨🚨

I’d wear a #facemask to go vote for
I would wear a #mask so that I could visit a #MAGA rally (if I couldn’t go without one)
I would wear a #facemask or #facecoverings
To a #lockdownprotest
If that was the only way I could protest it.

Love them or loathe them, face coverings have been used to protect us from all sorts of harmful material in the air for a very long time. [Thread] #facecoverings #facemask Face covering with scissors. © Lizzie Enfield.
Face coverings as a way of protecting respiratory health go back at least 2,000 years. The Roman philosopher Pliny the Elder used animal-bladder skins as masks to filter dust from toxic minerals used at the time for pigmentation in decorations. #facecoverings Caius Plinius Secundus.

In his travelogue, Italian explorer Marco Polo (1254–1324) described the servants attending to the Chinese emperor and his entourage wearing silk scarves to cover their mouths and noses to prevent their breath from contaminating the food they prepared. #facecoverings The book of Ser Marco Polo, the Venetian : concerning the ki

Late every night -- as I finish sorting my photos at #Flickr -- a darkness comes over me. Often it comes without subject. This mood is impossible to visualize in a photograph because outsiders expect a cause for every #depression. There is none.
"Cautious" is the title I gave to the last photo. It's the proper state of mind for the times. We need to be cautious. I have been inside since the 7th of July due to #COVID19, avoiding my fellow human beings who walk around without masks, merrily spreading infection.

There's a group on #Flickr whose title always gives me a laugh: "Narcissism in Color". When I make selfies, I have to admit that I am very much like Narcissus of mythology: the person who looks at them the most is me. This audience leans over the edge of the pool and dreams.
There's a strong association between #narcissism and dreams in #mythology. Many of us dream of that face in the pool, giving it fame that we think we deserve. The Instagrams of young people attract many likes. But this is no country for old men.

I take my #selfies for the purpose of building my #selfesteem. I know I am not more beautiful than other people. I know I am not more popular. The number of friends who view the my #photography is very small. But they are survival of sorts.

#mummy Joel Sax shared a photo with you from the Flickr app! Check it out:
Yes, I am a wreck sometimes. I don't believe in taking the pains to look like a person who I am not. If my hair is a mess, then it is a mess. That is how I am. Many people cannot afford to be like I am. They cannot afford to let their #depression show.

I get why the Big Brexiteers are against making #facemasks mandatory...
Binding yourself to rules made collectively for the common good at the expense of selfish exceptionalism is so off-brand for them.
I mean, these are the same people who think the visual appearance of a PassPort is more important than the ports it lets you pass.
So OF COURSE they think seeing someone's smile (visual well-being) is more important than them actually being healthy.
These are the same people who made up things the EU was supposedly about to force us to do despite clear evidence they were lying.
So OF COURSE they would say a #facemask is the first step toward permanent facial sneeze catchers.🙄

#FauciTheFraud: UnMasking MIXED MESSAGES

In early March, #Fauci told “60 Minutes” there was no need to wear a #facemask during the p*andemic.

On April 5th, Dr. Fauci said the major reason to wear a mask is not to affect others.
On May 12th Dr. Fauci said face masks were the best PPE for the general public.

Then #Fauci, who was seen scratching his face & adjusting his mask live, said masks are symbolic?

Today W.H.O. says 'no mask if you are healthy.'…

Like many, I’ve had some extra fee time these days... After rebinging @theofficenbc and #theofficereunion I was inspired.

A thread of Trump’s handling of the #coronavirus (#COVID19) pandemic, as told by Michael Scott. #TheOffice
Way back in 2018, Trump decided it was a good idea to disassemble the #Pandemic Response Team – created by the Obama administration in case there was “an airborne disease that is deadly.” This can’t go wrong! #thiswaspreventable
Trump does nothing to replace this. He plays golf and insults people on Twitter – just the normal things that presidents do right?

Here’s what Miranda Bailey would say: “What is the matter with you?? You went out into the street? Without a mask?? Without even a bandana tied around your face? What— Are you— ? Do you UNDERSTAND that you can have this disease and not have any symptoms? ...
Do you understand that with every exhale you are potentially risking the lives of someone’s mother? Someone’s grandmother? Someone’s father, someone’s sister, someone’s brother, someone’s child someone’s...someone? ...
You could HAVE the VIRUS and not KNOW it! I don’t care that you like to go jogging without a mask! I like to do a lot of things I can’t do right now! I don’t care that it fogs up your glasses! Is the mask literally killing you? No? Then put it ON.” #GreysAnantomy #facemask

Currently many hardworking individuals are making, importing, selling & donating facemasks, respirators and #PPE to protect healthcare workers & the community from #COVID19 transmission. This thread aims to explain some of the standards and regulatory issues around this. #Thread
So why is it that everyone suddenly wants to have facemasks? Mostly it is not a fashion statement, though with companies from Prada, Gucci and LV "making" facemasks (generally this just means importing from China), it does make you wonder.…
The basic premise is simple – #SARSCoV2 (the virus that causes #COVID19) is generally transmitted by moist droplets. We want to stop those droplets from entering your mucosa (the pink bits of your eyes, mouth & nose) through #spatialdistancing, #handhygiene & #barrierprotection.

Quien no pueda permanecer en su casa y tenga que salir DEBE DE USAR CUBREBOCAS!!!! Úsenlo!!

Hay consenso mundial, que el principal riesgo del #COVID19 #SARSCoV2 es la transmisión entre asintomáticos
el principio aceptado globalmente es que la gente haga cuarentena en casa ante el altísimo riesgo de ser portadores asintomáticos del #CoronaVirus
Ante esa circunstancia uno de los métodos más efectivos para quien tiene que salir a la calle es evitar la diseminación de microgotas
De una enfermedad en la q se sabe poco, y que aún es muy pronto para tener evidencia científica irrefutable sobre tratamientos y mecanismos de prevención, la experiencia empírica internacional es el mejor soporte.
Los #cubrebocas #facemask #barbijo #tapabocas son INDISPENSABLES
