Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

[Thread] Protecting yourself from viruses ‘is not just about ventilation, it’s about humidity in rooms’ -Dr @laoneill111 on @NewstalkFM #Covid19

& here’s why... 1/
In autumn conditions, as across Europe now, temperatures have dropped (10-15°C) people have moved indoors, heating is on & windows closed. #Covid19 cases have risen 2/ Image
It’s similar to last Spring when the hot-spot #Covid19 outbreaks were in yellow zone (Wuhan, New York, Seattle, cities in Iran, Italy, Spain, France, UK & Ireland) at 5-11°C, low absolute humidity 3/… Image

Why is Ireland locking down again? Look no further than our Covid-19 spreadsheet modellers.

They are unshakeable in the belief that Covid-19 remains a deadly threat to the population. But as I'm about to reveal, they are standing on shaky ground.

Thread. 👇👇👇

#level5 #NPHET
Meet Professor Philip Nolan, Chair of the Epidemiological Modelling Group on Ireland's NPHET. This man is the key provider of Covid-19 statistical analysis and forecasts to the Irish government.

Think of him as the Irish equivalent of Neil Ferguson.

In the thread above, he claims that about 1/3 of all infections were detected by PCR during the epidemic peak in April.

If that's true, and testing continued to find a high % of cases, then total infections so far might only be c. 100k-150k (vs. the official case count of 50k).

[Thread] Will #Level5 work?

Contacts between people are not all high-risk, & research says that most people with #COVID19 only transmit to 1 other person or fewer.. ‘It’s often not very contagious’ 1/

[ @jljcolorado… ]
..but a small number of people with covid (less than 20%) are likely infecting more than 80% of new cases... ‘preventing superspreader events could go a long way toward stopping COVID-19’ 2/

[ @svscarpino… ]
..Germany’s top doctor
‘Most people only pass it to one other.. occasionally, someone spreads more widely, creating a cluster of infections that drives the pandemic. To avoid another lockdown Germany must focus on identifying & preventing clusters’… 3/

#Covid19 prevention: CO2 monitors used as proxy for inadequate #ventilation in #schools #nursinghomes etc, it’s cheap & effective way of preventing high-risk super-spread #Covid19Ireland #Level5 @NormaFoleyTD1 @DonnellyStephen @CMOIreland @paulreiddublin @ronan_glynn @CcoHse
High-risk #covid19 indoor air conditions are ~immediately~ preventable with public health advice about clean air, #ventilation & free/low cost solutions, it’s basic environmental science…
Autumn conditions in Ireland (10-15° & high relative humidity) are high-risk (yellow zone)
If #Covid19 surge is the weather, not bad behaviour, then policing, road blocks & fines won’t be effective at #Level5

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites" Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)… Image
People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.
(for one week, as of now)

President #Ramaphosa: My Fellow South Africans, it has been exactly seven weeks since the first case of the coronavirus was confirmed in our country.

Since then, all our lives have changed in fundamental ways.

#COVID19 #CoronaVirusSA
President #Ramaphosa: As a nation we have been forced to take aggressive action against an invisible enemy that threatened our lives and the lives of our loved ones.

We have been forced to adapt to a new way of living, in a short space of time.
President #Ramaphosa: As we enter the fifth week of an unprecedented nation-wide lockdown – and as we look to the future – we should remember why we are here. The #coronavirus, which was identified in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December, has spread rapidly across the world.
