On 11/1/2005, President George W. Bush issued the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza, authored by the @WhiteHouse Homeland Security Council. It included concepts that resulted in the development of ground-breaking pandemic response strategies such as #FlattenTheCurve. 1/3
That document, and later pandemic strategies and plans that built upon it, have been valuable resources for those willing to use them in fighting #COVID19. It was a privilege for me to work on it in 2005 with true experts such as @rvenkayya. Experience and competence matter. 2/3

Other nations suppressed COVID19 with masks, testing, contact tracing, & supported isolation.

When @markmeadows told @JakeTapper “we are not going to control the pandemic,” it means this @whitehouse is CHOOSING not to try.

So more Americans will die.
cnn.com/2020/10/25/pol…
Would @markmeadows say “we are not going to control a war” & let soldiers die?

We aren’t going to control flooding, & let families drown?

Not to respond to a blizzard or fire, & let Americans freeze or burn?

Unacceptable dereliction of duty not to do what we can to save lives.
It’s mourning in America: 224,819 dead. Coronavirus is spreading rapidly. ICUs filling up.
Governors need to act now to #flattenthecurve: covidactnow.org
If we don’t, hospitals will be overwhelmed, & more people will die.

Ein zunehmendes Problem, warum #FlattenTheCurve und die med. Versorgung gefährdet sind, ist medizinisches Personal welches selber erkrankt oder in Quarantäne geschickt wird.

Schon normalerweise sind wir knapp besetzt und nun brechen große Zahlen an Mitarbeitern plötzlich weg.
Trotz Tests & Isolation sind in der Vergangenheit wiederholt einzelne COVID-Pos. durch das Raster gerutscht und plötzlich hatten wir dutzende Kontaktpersonen beim Personal. Natürlich trugen alle MNS aber vom Gesundheitsamt wird man trotzdem häufig als Kontaktperson 1 eingestuft.
Dass man nach Kontakt zunächst einmal zu Hause bleiben und getestet werden sollte, ist logisch und vernünftig, aber in der Praxis herrscht ein Wirrwarr an Zuständigkeiten aufgrund unterschiedlicher Gesundheitsämter, da der jeweilige Wohnort und nicht der Arbeitsort zuständig ist.

Wie läuft das eigentlich so mit den freien Intensivbetten im DIVI-Register ? Ein Thread... Nur um das mal einzuordnen, ich kenne mehrere Kliniken bzw. habe Einblick in deren Bettenpläne und es ist überall gleich bzw. sehr ähnlich 1/x
Jeden Morgen nach der Visite wird geschaut wie viele Patienten verlegt werden können, wie viele Aufnahmen geplant aus dem OP kommen und wie viele Betten eigentlich mit dem Pflegepersonal bedient werden können (Ärztliche Besetzung immer und überall egal) 2/x
Meistens läuft es so, dass sich aus dieser Summe maximal ein Überschuss von 2 freien Betten generiert, alle diese Zahlen werden dann morgens im DIVI-Register eingetragen und daraus errechnet sich dann eine prozentuale Belegung der Intensivbetten 3/x

Friends & Colleagues. Apologies for the length of this 1st Tweet—this topic deserves some extra characters. I joined Twitter during #COVID because I have seen that this medium can provide a quick flow of information and contribute to engaging discourse and positive change.

1/12
I resisted joining Twitter because I often saw the opposite. I thank my friend Andrew Morris (@ASPphysician) for his encouragement and powers of persuasion for demonstrating the more constructive facets of Twitter. His public cajoling means I have a lot to live up to.

2/12
Those who know me know that I eschew self-aggrandizement and self-promotion. I do not want to clog your Twitter feeds (learning the lingo!) with unhelpful thoughts. I hope to contribute to true discourse – particularly on topics I feel need to be emphasized and amplified.

For everyone's information, COVID update in the Philippines for September 26.

Hitting 3.6 MILLION TESTS (what's up mass testing freaks?).

Positivity rate has been less than 10% since September 13. Hopefully we can bring it down.

PH is hitting +40k tests per day. Good job!

Total cases: 301,256
New cases: +2,747
Active cases: 63,066
Total Deaths: 5,284

Hospital facilities comfortable at ~40% occupancy. We have succeeded in #FlattenTheCurve.

.@OttoKolbl sieht die Hauptverantwortung für den gegenwärtigen Zustand der Pandemie bei den Wissenschaftlern. Doch sie liegt bei den Politikern.

Einige Gedanken zu diesem lesenswerten Essay. Thread.
1/
Kölbl stellt drei wesentliche Punkte heraus. Erstens seien die westlichen Forscher zu Beginn der Pandemie bis Mitte März davon ausgegangen, dass eine Durchseuchung unvermeidlich sei, weshalb die Politik keine Eindämmung des Virus in Betracht gezogen habe. 2/
Stattdessen wurde das Ziel #FlattenTheCurve ausgegeben, damit die Durchseuchung verzögert und das Gesundheitssystem nicht überlastet wird.

Zweitens fehle es an epidemiologischen Studien, um geeignete Eindämmungsmaßnahmen auf einer unstreitigen Datenbasis begründen zu können. 3/

🚨 @KCElectionBd estimates turnout for the November election at 65% overall which equates to ~78% of active voters. Only 76 polling places will be open due to the pandemic - half the number vs. 2016
If you qualify to vote absentee, consider doing so early in-person, no mail required. Help #FlattenTheCurve and #VOTE
Remember standing in line to vote in 2016? That was "only" 59% turnout and with half as many folks assigned to your poll.

1/5 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: Today, in lieu of a daily in-person update to the media, I have issued a Saturday statement discussing the COVID-19 disease activity trends. Read the statement in full here: canada.ca/en/public-heal…
2/5 We are closely monitoring disease trends to inform/adjust/adapt public health actions essential to interrupting new chains of #COVID19 transmission. But public health actions aren’t enough on their own. #BePartofTheSolution
3/5 Keeping the #COVID19 infection rate low to maintain the epidemic on a controlled, #SlowBurn requires the continued commitment of all Canadians. #StrongerTogether

Welchen Corona-Kurs fährt die deutsche Politik eigentlich gerade? Und welchen Kurs sollte sie fahren? Thread mit zwei coolen Umfragen am Ende. 1/

#Covid_19 #coronavirus_de #Neuinfektionen #BildungAberSicher
@Karl_Lauterbach @Belex70 @AscotBlack
Das drängende Problem der gegenwärtigen Politik ist, welches Ziel wir in der Pandemie verfolgen sollen. Leider finde ich in den Medien weder Berichte darüber, welches Ziel derzeit verfolgt wird, noch Debatten, welches Ziel verfolgt werden sollte. 2/
Dabei haben sich jüngst der Bundesgesundheitsminister, der Regierungssprechen und sogar auch die Bundeskanzlerin zumindest indirekt dazu geäußert.

Ich will nicht darüber spekulieren, warum das Thema von den Medien ignoriert wird, sondern das Ding selber in die Hand nehmen. 3/

Mid of March 2020.

Countries went into lockdowns to mitigate the harm of the Covid acpocalypse which otherwise leads to millions of death and collapse all health systems around the globe.

After 5 month its time to take a (indermidiate) conclusion.

Thread (long).

This thread will involve many of my own analysis as well as some helpful tweets which got my mind sorted.

Motivation to create this thread is to "bundle" some useful information as tweets usually have just a half-time of max. 30 min Image

German Dr. Wolfgang @wodarg in March:
"Without the new PCR test we probably wouldn't even recgonise what is going on".

As I was sceptic about this statement I've started my own analysis.
First attempt was looking at the bad "flu" year 2018 in Europe.

Dazu @jensspahn: "Mit um die 1000 Neuinfektionen pro Tag kann das Gesundheitswesen umgehen." Wir sind also immer noch bei #FlattenTheCurve. Es geht nicht darum, uns vor dem Virus zu schützen.

Doch auf diesem Niveau sind Schulöffnungen sehr schwierig. Wir brauchen #Containment.
Offenbar folgt Spahn #mutigwieStreeck: „Wir dürfen nicht bei jedem Anstieg der Infektionszahlen in Panik geraten.“ Und: „Das Ziel ist und war es, das Gesundheitssystem nicht zu überlasten, und dass jeder die bestmögliche Versorgung bekommt."
Um sich die Absurdität dieser Position zu verdeutlichen, stelle man sich vor, man würde sagen: "Die Zahl der Verkehrsunfälle ist beherrschbar, denn die Intensivstationen sind nicht überlastet."

Es ist Zeit für eine einheitliche Gesundheitspolitik. #covid_19 #Neuinfektionen

Lisa Fitz,

die "Kabarettistin" mit dem unüberseh- und unüberhörbaren verschwörungsideologischem Einschlag samt Rothschild-Antisemitismus war gelegentlich Thema wie in diesem Thread.
Da Sie Ihren "Flüsterwitz"-Song, gern auch bei AfD-Veranstaltungen gespielt, bei Heiko Schrank veröffentlichte, der der Welt der Aluhüte bei #b0108 Wichtiges mitzuteilen hatte, wundert es nicht, dass Sie ein Buch von Oliver Janich lobt, der heute die Nr. 1 der QAnons in DE ist.

1/5 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: Today, in lieu of a daily in-person update to the media, I have issued a Thursday statement you can read in full here: canada.ca/en/public-heal…
2/5 This week marks 6 months since @WHO declared #COVID19 a public health emergency of international concern and 🇨🇦 announced its 1st case of the novel coronavirus. In this short time, the virus has spread to countries worldwide.
3/5 Although 🇨🇦 has managed to #FlattenTheCurve and bring #COVID19 under some semblance of control, we cannot relax our efforts. Countries that were very effective in controlling their epidemic early on have since seen a resurgence.

2/5 The recent uptick in #COVID19 cases across 🇨🇦 is cause for concern. After months of staying home, we may be experiencing #COVIDfatigue, leading us to backslide on some important personal public health practices, like #PhysicalDistancing.
3/5 Our initial efforts worked to #FlattenTheCurve. But, if we let our guard down or fail to understand the risks, we could compromise the gains we’ve made. Let’s work together, know the risks and take precautions to keep #COVID19

I’d like to thank & spank ‘#flattenthecurve’ & covid19 hysteria for killing my job, bc in the bittersweet backdrop of that extra time not working 55+ hours/week, I’ve been able to do what I love doing: researching my hind off and finding connections & backstories I never...
...would’ve had the time for otherwise (using my degree for what I’d hoped to originally, before I learned how dirty & rigged our reality is). I’ll be slowly dropping a series of celeb digs... Billie wasn’t a part of this series originally, I did a thread on her bc of their..
...blatant intent to target youth, using her. Because of family ties, she’s far more connected to this group in the SJW shaping than I thought, so catch up on her first, if you want.

NEW: Dallas County Reports 1,055 Additional Positive 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Cases and 8 Deaths
The eight deaths we experienced today make it clear that by the time this week is over on Saturday that this will be one of our deadliest weeks so far.
I again urge @GovAbbott to enact the reasonable, business-friendly suggestions from the medical community that we sent him 3 weeks ago and have again urged him to enact since that time.

Please fill out the #census. As of July 5, 52.5% of Houston's estimated 2.3M residents have completed the survey. For each person who goes uncounted, Houston loses about $1,500 per year in government funds per year for the next 10 years. We need that money for education, housing
Today, the @HoustonHealth reports 412 new cases of #COVID19, bringing Houston's total top 26,012. The number of deaths increases by 5 to 250.
The numbers are moving in the wrong direction and the next couple of weeks are critical in slowing the spread of #COVID19.

ICU bed usage is at 45.2% of base capacity. We must #flattenthecurve to protect everyone's health, safety and avoid overwhelming our hospitals.

NEW: Dallas County Reports Largest Increase in COVID-19 Hospitalizations Thus Far and ­­­­­1,214 Additional Positive 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Cases
.@DCHHS reports 1,214 cases and 6 deaths. Today we’ve seen our biggest jump ever in hospitalizations, both in the region and in the county. We saw 105 more hospitalizations than yesterday, a 16% increase in one day alone.
We also reached a new milestone in the number of new COVID -19 cases but it’s the hospitalizations number that we must watch closely. Think of hospitalizations as the sickest of the sick, the part of the iceberg above the water.

This mosaic represents all the healthcare workers who lost their lives from #Covid19 - We are now launched into the midst of another wave of this deadly virus.

I ask you, will we have a second photo of the fallen?

Is it too much to ask you to stay away from large crowds? Image
As our hospitals in Florida are left with less than 22% ICU capacity, will you give up your ventilator for a healthcare worker?

What was that....

No?!?

#WearAMask #StopKillingHealthcareWorkers Image
Then don’t ask us to give up our lives because you want to party on the 4th of July, or go to a bar, or go to a protest, or even go to the beach...

Make the sacrifice .... because we are making the sacrifice every single day.
