1. A tale of 2 #COVID19 case maps:

Left: Shows total cases (bigger circles, more cases) arcgis.com/apps/opsdashbo…

Right: Shows cases per 10,000 residents. Much easier to see very concerning #rural outbreaks in ID, LA, CO, ID

2. Focusing on #COVID19 cases per 10,000 people helps identify locations that are likely going to exceed local hospital capabilities very quickly. See rank list here. Blaine, ID (tourist ski area) has the highest infection rate in the country

3. Many hospitals in #rural areas have very small ICUs if they have ICUs at all and limited capacity. See this thread from a small community hospital in #Louisiana overwhelmed by #COVID19

1. As of this morning #Georgia has 4,117 positive #COVID19 tests. 125 citizens of Georgia have died so far as a result of @POTUS criminally negligent response to the pandemic. One of Georgia’s Senators @SenatorLoeffler illicitly profited off the virus with insider trading.
2. #Georgia’s other main Republican Senate candidate @RepDougCollins enables Trump and is currently doing everything he can to ensure more citizens of #Georgia die by spewing dangerous disinformation about the Trump administration’s failed response to the pandemic.
It’s time for the Republican party in Georgia to lose power. There are. number of highly qualified Democrats running for both of #Georgia’s open Senate seats. One is @ossoff who would be in the House right now but for elections booth shenanigans. electjon.com

Hard to keep up w/ all hotspots around the world & separate signal from noise. Few observations from last 24 hrs.

TL; DR - Turkey, Russia, Philippines, Louisiana, Texas, Georgia, Florida, Indiana, California should draw our attention.

Testing, Testing, Testing. 1/x
Turkey has grown their cases by 50% in last 48 hours. They are one of the fastest growing (#Covid19) large countries and straddle a geopolitically sensitive region. 2/x

washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/…
#Russia & the #Philippines have suddenly cropped up w/substantial growth & both look to be starting from behind in terms of testing. They are following a familiar pattern and they start out with no particular advantage. And this doesn't help matters. nypost.com/2020/03/31/rus… 3/x

⚠️#COVID19 death toll in #NYC continues to skyrocket and is *more than doubling* every 2 days.

Sadly, deaths now surging in #Michigan, NJ, and #Louisiana, along with #California and #Florida (*still NOT locked down), as predicted.

NATIONWIDE #LockdownNow‼️

📸@jburnmurdoch @FT
Overall #COVID19 death toll in the US is *DOUBLING every 3 days*.

Multiple states, including #Florida with a high % older high-risk population, *still* have NOT locked down.

As outbreaks continue to flare across the US, our #coronavirus death toll could accelerate even more.😰
Number of #coronavirus cases in the US are SKYROCKETING faster than *any* country at the same point in the outbreak and are *DOUBLING ~2.5 days*.

Yet we *still* have NOT locked down.🤬

#Georgia @GovKemp interview on @TheMeansReport illuminated Republican talking points for future elections: If it weren't for irresponsible residents, the #COVID19GA #pandemic wouldn't have been so bad. wjbf.com/top-stories/we… I can see ads showing non-white people allegedly doing
something which may have spread the disease. Direct the voters' anger at the tens of thousands of dead & 100s of thousands who suffered at "bad" people instead of the do-nothing, self-serving policies of the politicians who had the means to take effective action but instead were
either too busy making political calculations, protecting their stock portfolios long enough to sell off theirs & lining up sweetheart deals for needed medical supplies & procedures or too ideologically committed to private property or a twisted version of American

1/5 #Georgia opened a new hospital very close to the line of separation with #Abkhazia. A photo taken months ago during one of my trips to the area.

Should be a huge help to those living in Samegrelo, which has the biggest population of displaced people in the country.
2/5 Potentially could also help those inside the conflict zone, especially during #COVID19 crisis.

So far no registered cases in #Abkhazia. The region made a good use of WHO specialists: Sukhumi adopted proposed plan and started implementation.
3/5 Some of my Abkhaz friends surprised people follow rules, despite a long mass record of disobedience to the local police and other branches of df government.

But not all perfect. During the weekend some still hosted huge weddings. No one was arrested, but made many angry.

Thread on #Georgia @GaDPH Mar 13 Interim Guidance for Clinicians Evaluating, Reporting, and Requesting Diagnostic Testing for Possible #COVID19 Cases #coronavirus #publichealth. Original document available at dph.georgia.gov/document/docum…. I've archived it here drive.google.com/open?id=1QKgAt…
Let me preface this by saying I have no medical training or special knowledge. I urge those who can to correct anything I get wrong here.

My main concern is that it remains difficult to get #COVID19 testing. People who are reluctant to take other #publichealth measures such as
social isolation frequently say things like "There are no confirmed cases in our area." IMO, that's true because too few people have been tested. So let's examine the document.

1-A lot of friends have asked me what they should be supporting w/ 💵& ⏰. Even if you have a favorite candidate or 2, for every $ you give to them, you should also give $1 to an org working to build the long-term infrastructure that will ensure no more Trumps for the long haul
2- these are orgs that register ppl of color & youth to expand the electorate in places like Texas & Florida. They are orgs that organize with communities often overlooked, to build power & recruit candidates so our bench is more representive of the party we SAY we want to be
3- Going to slowly add to the list of orgs & local candidates on this thread. Encourage others to tag in the ones I end up inevitably leaving out. I’ll start with state-based long term organizing. There are SO MANY good ones.

⚠️The US now has 105 #coronavirus cases with >50 peo­ple diagnosed within the US (including 2 new cases in #Georgia). as the num­ber of con­firmed cases out­side #China surpassed 10,000. Six people have died from #COVID19.

Expect these numbers to surge.
wsj.com/articles/confi…
In #SouthKorea, the number of #coronavirus cases has exploded in *just 2 weeks* from <50 to at least 5,186 #COVID19 cases.

Unfortunately, I expect a massive surge in cases here in the US through March that will hopefully ebb as summer approaches.

Unfortunately, the (continued) bungled rollout of #coronavirus testing in the US has made it even more difficult to contain #COVID19, due to the lack of early testing.🤬

In the 2016 California Democratic Primary, 750,000 votes were DISQUALIFIED, mostly cast by No Party Preference (NPP) voters — 3 out of 4 of whom were #BernieSanders supporters. gregpalast.com/california-scr… #BernieSanders2020
They know that if NPP voters are allowed to vote in the California Democratic primary, #BernieSanders walks away with it. gregpalast.com/california-scr…
In 2016, California had over 1 million provisional ballots — equal to half of ALL provisional ballots cast in the United States. The vast majority of these provisional ballots were never counted, which is why we call them placebo ballots. gregpalast.com/bernie-won-cal…

#BrianKemp bleached the rolls whiter than white, removing over half a million voters. 1 in 8 voters in #Georgia was flushed off the voter rolls. But the vote-rigging Kemp was involved in is not limited to Georgia... gregpalast.com/palast-scores-… #VanishingVoters
#BrianKemp was in a conspiracy, and I use that word very carefully, with #KrisKobach, the white supremacist former Secretary of State of Kansas who's Trump’s Vote-Thief-in-Chief. risingupwithsonali.com/2020/02/11/geo…
#BrianKemp worked with #KrisKobach not only to purge voters in #Georgia, but using Kobach's Interstate #Crosscheck system they targeted 7 million voters of color in 30 states. vimeo.com/390830177 #VanishingVoters

#BrianKemp bleached the rolls whiter than white, removing over half a million voters from the rolls in #Georgia before the 2018 gubernatorial race against #StaceyAbrams — who was the first African American woman to run for Governor in the U.S. blavity.com/gov-brian-kemp…
But Kemp's racist vote-purging tricks go way beyond Georgia. He worked with #KrisKobach, Trump's Vote-Thief-in-Chief, who used the #InterstateCrosscheck voter purge list generated by Kemp in Georgia to target voters of color in 30 states. gregpalast.com/kemp-loses-vot…
That's what flipped #Michigan to Trump and helped steal the presidency in 2016. And it'll happen again in 2020, unless we're able to expose and stop the GOP's election-stealing tricks. rollingstone.com/politics/polit…

I have the absolute proof that #BrianKemp stole the 2018 election from #StaceyAbrams — America's first major party African-American female gubernatorial nominee — by illegally removing 340,134 voters from #Georgia's rolls. freespeech.org/stories/voter-…
We sued #BrianKemp to get his secret #Crosscheck voter purge lists and last week a federal judge agreed that the purge lists we're requesting are subject to the public disclosure provisions of the National Voter Registration Act. gregpalast.com/judge-rules-ag…
We want to get our hands on these racially-biased-by-design #Crosscheck purge lists because this story goes way beyond #Georgia and the gubernatorial race.

This is a BIG win, not just for me as a journalist, not just for Helen Butler, the Executive Director of the Georgia Coalition for the Peoples Agenda who is our co-plaintive in this case, but it's a big victory for voters nationwide. nytimes.com/aponline/2020/…
As @AP reports: U.S. District Judge Eleanor Ross wrote in a Feb. 4 order that Palast and Butler "are entitled to access to the 2016 and 2017 Crosscheck lists.” news.yahoo.com/judge-rules-ag… #BrianKemp #InterstateCrosscheck #VoterPurge #Georgia #VanishingVoters
@AP These are the lists used to fix elections and eliminate voters of color. This case rips the cover off #BrianKemp and the state of #Georgia’s racially poisonous undermining of democracy. gregpalast.com/kemp-loses-vot…

BREAKING: In an extraordinary move, Judge Eleanor Ross has declared #BrianKemp the loser in a lawsuit brought by our team to compel the State of #Georgia to open up its complete files on the mass purge of over half a million voters from the rolls. gregpalast.com/kemp-loses-vot…
#BrianKemp and the new Secretary of State of #Georgia want to keep the lid on their methods for removing literally hundreds of thousands of low-income, young and minority voters on the basis of false information. They cannot hide any more. gregpalast.com/kemp-loses-vot…
This is a huge win and precedent for reporters trying to pry information from the hands of guilty officials. gregpalast.com/kemp-loses-vot… #BrianKemp #Georgia #VoterPurge #VanishingVoters

Amin is one of at least 17 #Iranian students turned away at US airports despite valid visas. He planned to pursue a PhD at U of Florida. Instead, he was chained & taken to the Deyton Detention Center in #Georgia. We @projectsouth have been documenting conditions there. THREAD.
@ProjectSouth Amin was placed in a chilly holding cell at the #Atlanta airport for six hours, then transported to Deyton. Where the officers ordered him to strip naked in front of them. “The moment I entered the cell, I lost my spirit,” he said.
@ProjectSouth After we successfully convinced #Atlanta to stop colluding w/ICE for detaining immigrants at the city jail, ICE turned elsewhere to fuel the detention machine. They secretly entered into an arrangement w/private prison corporation GEO group for detention of immigrants at Deyton.

Trump's going to steal the 2020 election. It doesn't matter how good the Dem's campaign is or how much they spend on ads. Clinton outspent Trump by almost a $1 billion in 2016, but Trump is in the White House because we have an apartheid voting system. gregpalast.com/how-trumps-goi…
#Georgia's ground zero for vote theft. You think of it as a Republican state, but it's going to be the first Deep South white minority state. So the Dems can't lose — unless the GOP steals it from them! gregpalast.com/how-trumps-goi…
There aren't enough white people to elect Donald Trump in states like Georgia. That's WHY the Republicans have stepped up their vote thieving games, which could absolutely reelect Trump — no matter the will of the people. thelondoneconomic.com/opinion/donald…
