The two requests from last night are for a single female that is taking care of her mom who is 70. She has NO food in their house.

We took her a few bags of food last night at 2:45am and left with a promise to bring a food hamper by Monday.

Announcement from @fordnation sank my heart today. As an ER doctor, person of color and #Scarborough native, I feel defeated 😢. The measures are not going to get wave 3 under control. #BIPOC #ERdoc @SHNcares @torontolife @JustinTrudeau @SCMirror 1/
When I landed as an #immigrant in #Canada, my life started in #Scarborough. My parents (#heros) struggled to find jobs that matched their education. That didn't stop them from working hard / hustling even if it meant 2 jobs at times to keep bills paid and food on the table. 2/
My family lived in an apt building that had mostly racialized/middle-low income families (#affordability). Not much social distancing when large crowds wait for elevators (#EssentialWorkers) or use the shared laundry facilities. This pandemic brings back those vivid memories 3/

Pro tip #1: All those over 50 are not one group.

Pro tip #2: needs, skills, adv illness burden, access to vaccines varies
👉esp. by age, race/ethnicity, gender identity.

Pro tip #3: we need more accurate data summaries

A 🧵 on what this PCP sees in the .@CDCgov data
2/ Age 65 to 74, or 75+ individually represent the LOWEST vaccinated age group than any other adult age group, 14 and 15% respectively

👉compare to NHS which report 42% of vaccinated represent 80+ age group
3/ Race/Ethnicity data is not readily available for 18.9 million of those vaccinated = 6% of US population

👉Pacific Islander/Native Hawaiian
👉American Indian/Alaska Native

CUMULATIVELY represent <20% of those vaccinated

While the country observed the first immunisation drive, on January 16, of the homegrown COVID-19 vaccines one of which lacks efficacy data, a few frontline workers refused to take the vaccine.
The Centre has said that the workers will not get to choose between the two vaccines and will be administered with whichever is available on the spot.
The worker is heard saying, “We have been working all this while during the COVID-19 pandemic and we will work in the future but if we take this vaccine and get adverse reactions, who will be responsible for that?”

1. #LTC was always going to be where the disaster unfolds. @OntariosDoctors told u in the 1st wave, & everyone in the world knew it in this one. 1/
2. Relying on hospitals to "save the day" wrt IPAC, staffing & resources is an impossible task if in a hot zone, when also trying to continue to provide acute & chronic care services. We already knew that #onhealth added 80+ wks to wait lists just from 1st few mos of lockdown 2/
And now, w #hospital beds overflowing what will the future waitlist #s be?
3. Then add multiple #LTCs in outbreak 4 each hospital & where is more hospital staff to come from?
4. Meanwhile, while this is being sorted out, the patients & residents wait, suffer. Some die 3/

If you can help @HarvestHillsYYC Please do. They're unfairly being targeted by UCP Conservative Party Trolls & are being harassed by people who are going after their organization.
They've even gone as far as demanding Jenn retract any & all statements she made in regards to being critical of the current Alberta Government.

We are indeed dealing with a cruel & heartless government.
These EVERYDAY heroes, are the very people that are stepping up & filling the GAP that our government is refusing to fill.

The @Alberta_UCP can't see the damage that is being done to the province that I & others love so much. From Doctors to Parks, Everything is being attacked.

Read 4 tweets's been a good while since I've done a good tweetstorm, but since it now appears that the #HEROESAct will soon be passed as the second stimulus package, it's time to talk about the #HazardPay section and how it may affect those of us #EssentialWorkers.

As far as publicity is concerned, #HazardPay has been the stepsister in the basement, at least compared to the rollicking debates over the stim checks and the $600/week fed UI extension.

But, it actually may be the most impacting for #essentialworkers down the line.

Until recently, it seems that not even the parties in DC now negotiating and fighting over the details of the stim package have given #HazardPay its due analysis. Nor has the media.

Every person diagnosed to have #COVID19 should have a kit comprising of pulse oximetre , thermometer, medicines, a list of do’s and don’ts. The state Governments can procure and supply to every person diagnosed at their home ahead of home isolation. @CMofKarnataka @drashwathcn
The state Government has notified list of hospitals for #COVID19karnataka admissions & nodal officers in charge for any complaints. No person can be denied beds. 2 of N #Bengaluru
The BBMP has to display the actual beds in each hospital in real time basis. It is impossible to believe that they couldn’t get an app in time despite #Bengaluru called as Silicon Valley. Only then, private hospitals that are not admitting patients can be held accountable. 3 of N

1/11This weekend sucked. I swabbed a patient for Covid today (one of many). She was convinced she didn’t have “it” because she’d been swabbed two days before & it was negative, despite all of her symptoms pointing to it. The swab is awful & we are seeing 30-40% failure rate.
2/11Because if not done correctly (which is fucking awful) you get ‘negative’ tests. So I swab pretty aggressively. I made her nose bleed unfortunately and she cried. I felt terrible about that. Her test came back positive. She broke down & cried. I sat with her in my PPE
3/11where it’s impossible to really connect. She asked “can you promise me I’m not going to die?” I didn’t know what to say. I said “your numbers look good and most people do okay with this. She then asked “what are you going to do here for me?” I explained the plan

Dr. Bonnie Maldonado (@StanfordPeds) shares #COVID19 updates at the @StanfordEMED Town Hall.
🦠immunity is not durable once infected
🦠animals get coronas, and do NOT infect humans. However, human coronavirus on animal furs can spread the virus.

#PerspectiveNOTPanic #EMConf
Nasal swabs is a better test. A lot more virus in the nose than other parts of the body, which may explain droplet precaution.

#COVID19 #perspectiveNOTpanic #GetUsPPE #safetyfirst
Shedding may occur up to 48 hours before symptomatic. Asymptomatic may have lower viral load, and may not be as infectious, BUT STILL DO SHED AND ARE INFECTIOUS.

By 14 days, most people stop shedding.
