🇮🇹 Itália 🇮🇹 implantou o #lockdown 10/03 e as evidências mostram surtir efeito no início de abril com a desaceleração na ocupação dos leitos. Veja a previsão (28/03-04/04):
◾+35.695-39.770 novos casos
◾+760-1051 UTIs
◾+4.317-5.198 mortes
◾108-150 UTIs/dia
A desaceleração na ocupação dos leitos tem principal causa no isolamento social. Os casos detectados na 🇮🇹 Itália 🇮🇹 continuam em um nível muito baixo, porque os testes só aumentaram a cobertura diária nos últimos 9 dias.
O sistema de saúde entrou em colapso 06/03. O governo só implantou isolamento social em todo país 10/03. Por isso a tendência infelizmente é haver muitas mortes até a 1° quinzena de abril. A boa notícia é o alcanço do pico da epidemia de #coronavirus logo.
Força 🇮🇹 Itália!

~1.7 million 🇬🇧 UK people may be #COVID19 infected.

~3% or 1 in 39. ~6% in London.

Assume: 1019 dead; IFR 0.9%; Adj. days to death ~13.

So ~113k infected 13 days ago
~3.25 days to double so ~4 doublings

So infections to date: ~1.8m, ~5% recovered so ~1.7m infected.
London estimates are based on yesterday's 32% of UK "confirmed cases" - not on separate doubling rates.

Implies ~467k current infections in London, or ~6% of the population.

Within the range mentioned by @neil_ferguson in S+T cttee:

Whole model is v.v.sensitive to inputs, so low confidence + wide ranges apply.

More deaths --> more infections
Higher IFR% --> fewer infs (don't need as many for same deaths)
Longer days to death --> more infs (more time to double)
Higher doubling rate --> more infs

#Thread #धागा #कोरोना_व्हायरस

जगभरात आज पाच लाखाहून अधिक मानवी जीव कोरोना विषाणूने ग्रस्त आहेत तसेच पंधरा हजार पेक्षा अधिक जणांना आपले प्राण हकनाक गमवावे लागले आहेत.

ह्या विषाणूंचा प्रसार चीन देशाने UN आणि WHO च्या संगमताने कसा कट रचून केला ह्यावर उजेड टाकणारा हा थ्रेड !
ज्यांना माहिती नाही त्यांच्या साठी - पहिल्या ट्विट मधले छायाचित्र आहे WHO चे डायरेक्टोरेट जनरल डाॅ टेड्राॅस घेब्रीयेसूस.
डोळ्यावर चीनी झेंड्याची पट्टी बांधलेला त्यांचा फोटो आज जगभर वायरल झाला आहे.
तर चला आपण हा वायरस चीनने जगभर कसा पसरवला हे जाणून घेऊ.

तर अशी आहे #क्रोनोलाॅजी
कोरोना विषाणूने प्रादूर्भाव झाल्याची पहिली केस चीनच्या #वुहान प्रांतात नोव्हेंबर २०१९ मधे समोर आली. वुहान प्रांत चीनचा एक मोठा प्रसिद्ध Business Hub आहे ज्याची लोकसंख्या एक कोटीच्या आस पास आहे.
दिवसागणिक केसेस वाढत गेल्या आणि ३० डिसेंबर २०२० पर्यंत कित्येक डझनभर केसेस समोर आल्या.

Between 26/03 night & 28/03 morning, @MoHFW_INDIA has confirmed 179 #Covid19 cases.

No government can hide behind data – a huge jump concealed today must be revealed tomorrow – but the optics of it in the last two days has made me curious.

Here's what the ministry has done:
1. In its 26/03 press briefing, the ministry said the increase in #coronavirus numbers was "stabilising"/"reducing". It was duly picked up as the headline by many media outlets.

Four hours later, the ministry updated its data: the biggest single-day jump so far (88 new cases)...
... That ministry press briefing came six hours after the previous update, and four hours before the next update. Surely, the govt knew the upcoming update would be big?

But positive headlines were ready, as dusk fell on the second day of the #lockdown.

A number of you have been asking me to recommend a list of books to read during #Lockdown, in more detail than my brief interview with @IndiaToday did earlier this week. One of you, @MihirMisra_, sent requests through a friend for ten books! So here is a thread listing ten books:
1.The Mahabharata transcreated by P. Lal
A wonderfully racy, contemporary translation of the timeless epic, melding poetry and prose and full of contemporary idiom, Prof. Lal’s is unarguably the best and most readable one-volume version of the Mahabharata.
2.The Discovery of India by Jawaharlal Nehru
The brilliant mind of the great nationalist sparkles in this evocation of the cultural, political and civilizational heritage of our nation.

In der letzten Woche haben sich zwei Held(innen) in der Berichterstattung zu #CoronaVirusAT herauskristallisiert. Diese Personen und ihre Arbeit haben Österreich vor dem Schlimmsten bewahrt.

Sie haben die Nennung ihrer Namen und Orden verdient.

1. Der Mediziner, der in #Ischgl auf eigene Faust im #Kitzloch #Corona-Tests durchgeführt hat und damit den Stein ins Rollen gebracht. Ohne ihn wäre der Normalbetrieb in #Tirol weitergelaufen. Eine Woche? Zwei?
Unvorstellbar, was ohne ihn jetzt los wäre.
2. Die Person oder das Team im #Gesundheitsministerium (?), die den Ernst der Lage in #Ischgl erkannte, als es dort weniger Fälle als in Wien gab, und so unmißverständlich kommunizieren konnte, dass Österreich das Schlimmste erspart blieb. Jeder Tag hat in diesem Moment gezählt.

Een draadje: Welke lessen kunnen wij van Wuhan leren?

Onthullend artikel waarin naar Wuhan wordt gekeken welke lessen er te leren zijn van hoe China het #COVID19 virus heeft aangepakt en vooral ook wat men fout deed.

Een belangrijke les is dat #lockdowns niet het antwoord zijn op een nieuw corona of ander virus. Een hele stad, een regio of zelfs een heel land onder #lockdown plaatsen is niet veel meer dan een paniekreactie. Maar wel een reactie met zeer verstrekkende consequenties.

Het werkt extreem sociaal maatschappelijk ontwrichten, het veroorzaakt paniek en zelfs massahysterie en het daarbij behorende gedrag. Zoals het zogenaamde hamsteren, maar het kan ook tot onlusten en gewelddadige opstanden, anarchie, plunderingen en misdadig gedrag leiden.

I stopped physical newspapers a few years ago. But notice how the #Lockdown21 is forcing almost all nps dependents to evolve into reading news on palm. A great percentage of them could permanently shift to digital. Beginning of the end of newspapers due to #COVID2019. 1/2
With the world clampdown on travel, see the increase in remote meetings via Video Conference. G20 and SAARC are the showcase of what future summits and meetings could be. Dovetails so well with climate change. A personal favorite positive #COVID fallout.

When governments say -rightly - that fighting a pandemic means businesses have to close and people can’t make a living, governments have to accept their obligation to keep people as close to whole as possible
Governments need to respect expert advice from officials of all kinds, but remember the hardworking people giving that advice have guaranteed salaries and pensions. The programs to deal with the fallout of #Lockdown have to be transparent and speedily accessible
If this doesn’t happen, people will insist on being able to make a living. The hope leaders offer has to be matched by bold deeds that may not have been contemplated even a week ago. The events since January have changed things irreversibly

मूर्खाधिपतियों को चैन नहीं है। पहले पूछ रहे थे कि मोदी कुछ कर क्यों नहीं रहा? अब बोल रहे हैं कि 21 दिन बहुत ज्यादा होते हैं। अब मैं बताता हूँ कि जब सरकार तेज़ी से एक्शन लेने में लगी थी और तुम्हें मीडिया ने कुछ बताया तक भी नहीं था,...Thread 1/20

तब तुम्हारे नेता क्या कर रहे थे। वो 30 दिसंबर 2019 का दिन था जब चीन ने 'एक प्रकार के न्यूमोनिया' की बात स्वीकार की और 7 जनवरी 2020 को WHO को कोरोना के बारे में बताया। भारत सरकार कब एक्टिव हुई, इसका आपको आईडिया भी है? ठीक इसके अगले दिन।


#Lockdown21 #CoronaVillains
ठीक इसके अगले दिन। 8 जनवरी को स्वास्थ्य मंत्रालय की 'टेक्निकल एक्सपर्ट ग्रुप' की बैठक में मंथन हुआ।

1.Expand, deploy and train competent workforce.
2. Make sure that every suspected case is diagnosed.
3. Ramp up production and availability of testing.
4. Identify, Adapt and equip treatment facilities for isolation of all the cases.
#wisdom Steps ahead for #covid19 @DrTedros
5. Develop a clear plan for ensuring the quarantine for contacts
6. Refocus the whole of the Government for #covid related work.

I am also happy that @drtedros used physical distancing as the preferred phrase over #socialdistancing. #Covid19India #covid19
Break the problem into regional and local problems, find the appropriate evidence-based solutions to local problems. @DrMikeRyan

Although this was mentioned wrt #coviditaly ; Something very important to for every country to do #covidindia

1n this is a thread collating all advice for dealing with the #lockdown. You MUST carry with you the emergency guidelines. And you must show cops this if they stop you. Specifically highlight the penal provisions for them if they prevent you. If they prevent you DO NOT RESIST....
2n You obey them, move to a distance, then click pictures of the officers concerned and if possible video as well. Remember, if you shove cameras in their face, they will seize it and you will lose evidence. Also mark the EXACT location on google maps & the exact time like so
3n for those of you with pets. Call your pet shop owners & send them these notifications on watsapp from Chattisgarh goa up & Delhi notifying pet food & vet services as essentials. Also you can show police if they prevent you

Every e-retailer and home supplier of essential goods is complaining of police and local authorities harassing staff and forcibly halting supplies. This has disrupted their delivery lines. Police and local officials are clearly violating Govt guidelines. @PMOIndia @narendramodi
A shabbily implemented, poorly coordinated #lockdown will defeat the purpose of keeping people at home. It will cause popular disquiet after a while. People need essential services and goods. A slipshod approach by an indifferent bureaucracy will rebound. @PMOIndia @narendramodi
I was and remain a total, unflinching supporter of #Demonetisation But that laudatory move was botched by shoddy, poorly coordinated implementation by an indifferent bureaucracy. #ISupportLockdown but @PMOIndia must ensure #lockdown does not go demonetisation way. @narendramodi

March 12, 2020-Get to a room and placed on supplemental oxygen via nasal cannula, 1 liter per minute (lpm). I’m only able to achieve 500 on my incentive spirometer, for perspective-my healthy lungs could hit 4000.
