On 24 March 2020, the Financial Times claimed that as much as half of the #British population may have already been infected by the novel #Coronavirus, according to a new model by #Oxford University’s Evolutionary Ecology of Infectious Disease group.
The conclusion, according to the FT’s science editor Clive Cookson, suggested that the country “had already acquired substantial herd immunity through the unrecognised spread of #COVID-19 over more than two months”. If true, this would vindicate the Govt’s “unofficial
Herd immunity strategy – allowing controlled spread of infection,” he stated
Although numerous #epidemiologists and #scientists had questioned the validity of the #Oxford model – which had not been peer-reviewed – it was promoted to the press by a PR agency with ties to the #Gov

#Italy #Lombardy #Coronavirus #RESTRICIONS

The Italian region of Lombardy has imposed new measures due to an increase in coronavirus infections. The regional government ordered on Friday evening, among other things,
that high schools introduce timetables in which the students take turns coming to class in person and being taught via the Internet. Similarly strict measures have been imposed in the Campania region, which is also badly affected. Schools were closed for two weeks.
Lombardy is again the region hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic in Italy. More than 2000 infections were added every day. Hospitals are busy. It gets full in the intensive care units.

THREAD. A week ago I wrote this on the contribution that #migrants and #refugees make to the response to #coronavirus. Since then I have been collecting information on HOW this happens in different countries to learn for the future.

At @ODIdev we will be tracking and analysing these actions/innovations, for now here is an overview

First up the #USA where #NY state takes action allowing qualified graduates of foreign medical schools to contribute to the #Covid_19 emergency response

Still in the #USA, the State Department is on the lookout for medical professionals abroad willing to work in the #US. As long as they have a valid visa....mhh.....🙄

1/n Messaging from the UK government on how they will handle #COVID19 has been terrible. First, they miscommunicated their #herdimmunity strategy - which was flawed, in any case. Now they're saying their strategy was so flawed they're dropping it.

2/ #COVID19 does not behave like the flu. Flu-based models of harm mitigation don't fit it. As soon as #COVID19 gets over around 200 in a country, it moves too fast for only #herdimmunity strategies; cocooning AND building healthcare-for-surge are essential.

"Restrictions imposed to control the virus — & public panic — have transformed #Italy’s commercial & financial capital in a way some Milanese fear will result in a deep & lasting economic blow."

1/ "Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte this week said the economic blow to Italy could be 'very strong.'”
2/ “'If the virus spreads, and it will spread, I think any local or national politician would have to take very drastic action, and that will virtually halt the economy,' said Roberto Perotti, an economist at #Milan’s Bocconi University, who was #workingfromhome this week."

🇮🇹#Italia Superspreader #Cluster THREAD 1/7🏨

Drew a #dataviz diagram based on available data* about the #Lombardy cluster, which as of EOD 2/22/20 had 54 cases, including 2 in #Milano, & still an unknown Patient 0.

*plz excuse any possible errors
2/7 This cluster has developed quite rapidly in the town of #Lodi, near #Milan, in the #Lombardy region of #Italy.

The story has shifted several times on Patient 0, but somehow Patient 1 - a 38 y/o male in Lodi - contracted the #COVID19 virus.

When Patient 1 had symptoms...
3/7 ...he went to the #ER at the local Codogno #hospital multiple X, but was sent home with only #antibiotics (which don't work on #COVID19italia)

He then infected his pregnant wife & friends.

Of the 1st group of ~6, all were in serious condition.

After more of 5 years of #restoration reopens the Sala delle Asse in the #Sforza Castle. The largest painting ever made by #LeonardodaVinci is back. This amazing work of art shows the passion for nature and landscape of the Tuscan master. #thread 1) milanoarte.net/en/portfolio/m…
@TheBlogArtPost @Svagaia @secolourbano @viaggevolmente @turismomilano @LombardiaSforza @StPallavicino @visit_milano @FondaPoliMi @VentoPolimi Portions of the original preparatory drawing made by #DaVinci have been revealed for the very first time. Here a beautiful landscape that can be easily recognized as #Lombardy landscape. Notice the bell tower with the spire, so typical of Lombard architecture of the 1400s. 2)

This show you the passion of #DaVinci for the landscape of our region, dominated by forests, low hills at the footsteps of the #Alps and elegant gothic churches. 3) milanoarte.net/en/portfolio/t…
