My #Missouri #COVID19 tracking site has been fully updated for Sunday, 9/6 - slu-opengis.github.io/covid_daily_vi….

The statewide 7-day average continued upward, sitting about ~20 cases per day on average below our peak value in July. This increase came entirely from the “outstate” trend. 1/5
In contrast to “outstate,” which continues to climb, the trends for #StLouis are falling and they are steady in the #KansasCity meso region ☝️. This is great news for those areas considering the large # of new cases yesterday, but deeply concerning for “outstate” hotspots. 2/5
Those hotspots are primarily centered on the Columbia, Springfield, and Joplin metro areas as well as a smattering of counties in northern (esp. Marion and Nodaway) and southeastern MO (esp. St. Francois, not shown). 3/5

This is my #Missouri #COVID19 evening update 🧵 for Thursday, 8/27. My website has been fully updated - slu-opengis.github.io/covid_daily_vi….

The 7-day average of new cases statewide ticked back up yesterday, with corresponding increases in #KansasCity and in the "outstate" region. 1/16
Outstate is back to posting highs relative to past report days ☝️, which now makes up 48.4% of our statewide 7-day average. Only #StLouis continues to show steady improvements. 2/16
The area around Springfield is a big part of the outstate trend. Greene County is averaging 80 new cases per day on average right now, and the Springfield metro is averaging around 100, though 7-day averages have dropped in surrounding counties. 3/16

YES-MAN MCCAUL, BACK AT IT AGAIN #TX10

Trump’s favorite coward @repmccaul is once again running interference for Trump’s blatant moves toward outright fascism. A THREAD:
In an interview last night, @repmccaul attacked the White House Press Corps, advancing Trump’s ‘fake news’ narrative because reporters had the AUDACITY to question the violent crackdown on Portland by federal agents & Trump’s plans to expand this horror nationwide. #TX10
As Chairman of House Homeland Security Committee, 2013-19, @repmccaul consistently advocated more aggressive DHS activities, including abridgments of civil liberties as he pushed for bloated growth & mission creep. McCaul remains unwavering in this project today.

My #Missouri #COVID19 tracking site has been fully updated for Saturday, 7/11 - slu-opengis.github.io/covid_daily_vi….

The 7-day averages of new cases reached new highs again yesterday in each of the three meta “regions” of Missouri I plot 👇. 1/5
However, when you interpret these trends, please be cognizant of the caveats I posted yesterday in the third tweet of my non-thread thread. 2/5
Also of note - the 7-day averages of new cases that I pointed out yesterday in #StLouis and #KansasCity continued to climb in the latest data update. 3/5

Long #Missouri #COVID19 evening update 🧵 for Thursday, 7/7. I’ve pushed updates to all metrics to the website - slu-opengis.github.io/covid_daily_vi….

The statewide 7-day average is basically unchanged, though the #KansasCity average hit another new peak value yesterday. 1/19
Expect this status quo to change tomorrow, as we absorb the 773 new cases in today’s DHSS release (which aren’t in my data tonight). @erinheff's reporting for @stltoday indicates that the state believes that this a backlog due to the holiday weekend. 2/19 stltoday.com/lifestyles/hea…
What matters more than our single day values is the trend - this may indeed be an outlier day in terms of raw numbers, but we’ll have to see what the next week brings in terms of new cases. 3/19

Short #Missouri #COVID19 evening update 🧵 for Tuesday, 6/30. I’ve pushed updates to all metrics to the website - slu-opengis.github.io/covid_daily_vi….

The statewide 7-day average jumped significantly to a new peak, with #KansasCity hitting a new peak, #StLouis at its highest point… 1/15
… since early May, and the outstate trend up as well, though it a bit short of its peak three days ago.

Every county in SW MO that I have been focusing on added cases yesterday. 2/15
In SE MO, Butler County added 24 new cases yesterday - easily the largest single day bump there - and is averaging over 5 new cases per day right now. Perry and Cape Girardeau have both continued to add new cases, too. 3/15

Short #Missouri #COVID19 evening update 🧵 for Tuesday, 6/16. I’ve pushed updates to all metrics to the website - slu-opengis.github.io/covid_daily_vi….

The headline - outstate cases hit another new peak today - we’re averaging ~84 new cases per day outside of #StLouis and #KansasCity. 1/
The statewide 7-day average plots have a noticeable anomaly on the green trend line - a drop then spike back up ☝️ that is artifact from the largely missed day of reporting Sunday that I mentioned in my 🧵 yesterday. I don’t think yesterday’s data release overcompensates... 2/17
...by dumping more new cases than we would expect. Instead, this is reversion of the mean - i.e. our 7-day averages right now are probably a bit lower than they would have been had the state provided the regular update to their dashboard on Sunday, but not by all that much. 3/17

Here is my #Missouri #COVID 🧵 for Monday, 5/4. To see the interactive maps, head over to the MO tracking site - slu-opengis.github.io/covid_daily_vi….

Since Missouri “reopens” today, with the statewide #StayAtHome order lifted, I want to take stock of our data.

1/22
I don’t want to bury the lede, though - as of “reopening” day, we:

❌ do not have reliable, public hospitalization or symptom data,
❌ have not increased testing volume in weeks, and
❌ have significant increases in cases in multiple regions around the state.

2/22
The state’s highest rates are in Saline County ☝️☝️, where an outbreak several meatpacking plants has led to nearly 200 cases. An earlier meatpacking outbreak in Moniteau County seems to have subsided based on the data we have at hand. 3/22

Here is my #Missouri #COVID 🧵 for Tuesday, 4/28. To see the interactive maps, head over to the MO tracking site - slu-opengis.github.io/covid_daily_vi….

Today, we have a special Parson’s reopening edition of the thread, with two plots showing new cases in MO 👇: 1/16
Specifically, the plots ☝️ show a 7-day average of new cases in MO on both a log and a linear scale. They break apart all of MO’s new cases, and only new cases outside of the #StLouis metro (since that is where many reported cases are). I’ve labeled peak dates as well. 2/16
Part of the White House’s plan is to identify “data-driven” metrics that show improvement in states, one of which is whether new cases are declining. I don’t know if states got more guidance than what is on the White House’s website… 3/16

Over the last months of 1918 and first months of '19, Americans suffered through worst pandemic in their history as the Influenza struck. When the virus receded, 675,000 Americans had died and upwards of 50 million globally. Follow the thread below for basic #1918Pandemic 101. Image
Following our thread of #1918Pandemic 101 pieces, we're excited to have Nancy Bristow, author of American Pandemic, here to answer your questions from 2-2:30 p.m. (CST). Chime in anytime with your questions using #1918Pandemic or by replying to our thread.
Scholars disagree on the geographic origins of the #1918Pandemic – some maintain it started in Kansas, while others pinpoint England or France in earlier yrs. What is clear is that the virus made its way into US Army barracks and from there, traveled out over to Western Front. Image

1) What if the REAL #SuperBowl2020 is the .....

UNITED STATES SENATE COMMITTEE ON THE JUDICIARY❓

👉

#QAnon #MAGA #WWG1WGA #POTUS #SuperBowl #KAG #KansasCity #KansasCityChiefs #ImpeachmentTrial
2) I considered the #ImpeachmentTrial would be used for an INJECTION of Deep State crimes.

However it is possible this was just a catalyst to build attention for the most appropriate venue to expose these Deep State crimes.

A priming as you will.
3) Perahps it was always all about using the constitutionally most suitable format/mechanism which is The United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary.

This is otherwise known as the Senate Judiciary Committee.

1/ It’s been a week.

It’s well into Friday evening & I just got off the phone with a patient who had urgent radiology results. This was after spending > 40 min on the phone w another patient discussing the same this afternoon.

(18 more to come; stick with me.)
2/ I only got 2 items on today’s long “to do” list done — but that’s on me. I was finally able to sit down for a couple hours uninterrupted and dig deep into a few patient cases from the week.

(And I “don’t work” on Fridays.)
3/ As I hung up the phone, I reflected on how #directprimarycare has enabled me to get to the heart of medicine & the doctor-patient relationship.

During that call, my patient’s spouse broke down and — through sobs — simply said: “Thanks for being so kind.”
