Was 7 Wochen Quarantäne plus der Konsum von Verschwörungstheorien anrichten können? Ich arbeite mich gerade durch das Instagram-Profil von Til Schweiger. Hier sein Post von vor 6 Wochen:
Vor fünf Wochen auch noch okay - bisschen pathetisch und schwülstig, aber mei.
Dann kam am 02. April das hier:

#DailyUpdate #COVID19India
Confirmed cases continue to rise, and Active cases now growing at 5.5% - so doubling every 13 days. Not good. It has picked up speed in last 2 days (from 4.7%). Hotspot management (containment + contact tracing + testing) needs to be much better.
The total confirmed cases are growing at just above 6% - according to different data sources. So doubling every 12 days.
The CGDR = 12.01%

1/ Jahrhundert- Pandemie oder Jahrhundert-Evidenz-Fiasko?

Wir erleben drakonische Maßnahmen die in ihrer Reichweite einzigartig in der Geschichte sind.

In diesem Thread fasse ich Meinungen und Studien zusammen, die ein differenziertes Bild zeichnen sollen

Ich stelle lediglich Fragen, die zu selten gestellt werden.
3/ Die in diesem Thread zusammengefassten Meinungen stehen extrem konträr zu den Meinungen unserer Politiker.
Gegenstimme: @TiloJung Interview mit @Karl_Lauterbach

An update on #COVID19 situation in Australia. Few interesting development today. Detected cases 6449 (+38), recovered unreliable 3692 (+86), Death 63(+1). We still have #FlattenTheCuve & Still follow Korea path. Interesting first results of relaxation testing criteria coming out
State. all #FlattenTheCuve except TAS with +4 today => less than the last 3 days. Interestingly first results of relaxation criteria with + 10 community cases in VIC today 232 (10% cases). Curious to see relaxation criteria in other states will play out in the next few days.
Testing side, not a lot happening. Not real increase today in number of testing 370,000 tests performed in Australia ~ 5K tests today but 1st results post relaxation testing criteria are coming out. Positive rate 1%. I would expect an increase testing numbers in the next few days

Thread: I’ve been pretty quiet the last few weeks. It’s because I had #COVID19. I’ve been off social media focusing on getting healthy. But I wanted to write something now that I’m feeling better…
I got infected through community transmission on Friday
March 13 (yes I’m aware), before it was even announced that was happening in Toronto. It was a dinner with six ppl. No one had any symptoms or had travelled recently.
I was never able to be tested, which is interesting in itself. I’m one of 170 “probable cases” of #COVID19 in Toronto that I was happy to see are now being counted in the official local total.

I appreciate your time reading this thread. Not many of my followers interact w/my posts, but I feel if I reach just 1 person & it helps, or keeps even just a few people complying with the #StayHome orders issued around the world - I must write this.
I'm a healthcare worker. I work at a hospital in the epicenter of the #CoronavirusOutbreak in the #NewYorkCity area. Today I have symptoms of having contracted #COVIDー19. It was inevitable. My hospital has dozens of patients & staff that are positive & that I've been exposed to.
I am terrified. I am immunocompromised. I have no ability to fight this. I am an #EssentialWorker - a state employee - and was advised by my doctors very early on to stay home because of the severe impact this virus could have on me. I did not heed the advice. Here is why:

I know you have a lot of questions about going to work. I am asking businesses to make responsible decisions for their employees and the general public. I didn’t define “essential” businesses in my proclamation, 🧵👇🏼
but any business that cannot maintain appropriate physical distancing between customers, other employees, and the general public should only be functioning if they provide critical services OR can continue to operate with appropriate physical distancing and intentional
safety measures in place. Guidelines on critical services can be found here:…

We want you to voluntarily comply with the Governor’s directive and my Proclamation. It’s not just about whether you think you are going to get sick

A short story [featuring you!] on the importance #SocialDistancingNow, why you must #StayHomeSaveLives, & why official ‘cases’ are a delayed version of the true numbers. (1/10)

[Day 0] You go to the video game store today & the person ahead of you coughs (mildly symptomatic #COVID19) & touches the pinpad on the credit card machine. You touch it too, maybe rub your nose later on the way to your car. Congratulations, you are now infected. (2/10)
[Day 1-4] The incubation period of #COVID19 is up to 14 days, average 5 days. No symptoms - means you go to work, then have coffee with your neighbour & babysit your niece. Everyone is healthy, so it’s fine, right? (3/10)

For the #OBGYN community please watch the free AAGL #COVIDー19 webinar w/ global gyn surgeons from Seattle to Italy & S.Korea. Sobering glimpse for what’s to come nationwide. I have summarized international takeaways below:
S.Korea has implemented many strategies that’s helping to effectively #FlattenTheCurve:

1. National coordinated/organized response:
-“United we stand, divided we fall”
2. Testing:
-Relatively cheap (<$200)
-Results available in 4-6 hours, -Convenience-drive thru testing launched quickly
-Fast Isolation and Treatment

3. Tracking (controversial)
-All confirmed cases using surveillance cameras, car license plates & credit cards

I've been thinking about how social distancing is about to put a huge distance between the more privileged and the at-risk/marginalized kids in the school system.
For example, my kid will be okay because I have more privilege. Middle class, educated white lady with a secure job, benefits, and a salary that doesn't depend on metrics like sales or hours worked.
If my kid's teacher is instructed to roll out some online learning, no big problem. She can do it from the comfort of any room in the house, using one of the many devices that are lying around the house.
