Hey ya’ll! As we support Black companies and creatives and more using #BuyBlack, I want to highlight Black museums who could use our $$$ support because we know now more than ever, we need to invest in the institutions that sustain & educate us on OUR history.

[RT/ THREAD ⬇️]
Keep in mind, because of COVID, it’s been predicted that 13% of museums won’t open back up. Due to a lack of funding, a large number of those museums may be Black museums. We can’t afford to lose our history and our story. #BuyBlack ⬇️
When your allies reach out to ask questions about Black history and culture, tell them to #PullUp by donating to a Black historical site or museum in appreciation of doing the work of telling our story. Here’s a SHORT list:

For those complaining about @GovRonDeSantis not closing down beaches, etc., and I'm guilty of this as well, stop and think.

It was up to local governments and counties to shut things down first. When they didn't, the Governor had to step in and do their jobs for them.
When @BilldeBlasio was telling #NewYorkCity to go to Broadway shows and continue living their lives, causing the biggest hot spot in the country, then didn't stop flights of infected people from fleeing to #Florida , this wasn't on Desantis. It's entirely on NY's government.
Please, PLEASE remember that our great, brand new Governor skipped his own inaugural party, choosing instead to immediately go to his office and get to work for us.

@CDCgov, it’s me again. This “report” you released is a flawed mess. If you’re attempting to address #RacialHealthDisparities then why are 12 of 14 states you cherry-picked ranked between 15-46th in terms of Black Population percentage. #TheLies
cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/6…
Instead of analyzing outcomes from #DC, #Mississippi or #Louisiana, all with >30% Black population, you chose to pad the numbers and present #Utah, #Oregon, and #Iowa... all <3% Black population. We. See. You.
Remember the #HealthCareSystem May discriminate but #COVID19 does not Image

⚠️African Americans appear to be dying from #coronavirus at a disproportionally high rate.

▶️Chicago: 30% black, 70% #COVID19 deaths
▶️Milwaukee: 27% black, 81% deaths

Similar trends in Philadelphia, Detroit, Louisiana & elsewhere.

#CoronavirusPandemic
nbcnews.com/news/nbcblk/af…
More data needed ASAP. African Americans are more likely to have underlying health issues. Low-income folks of color are more likely to have jobs that can't be done remotely increasing risk of #coronavirus infection, while more affluent professionals can stay at home.😰

#COVID19
The @CDCgov has age and gender in its #COVID19 data, but hasn't released racial or ethnic data.

Most states haven't released racial or ethnic data, except 9: Connecticut, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and DC.

⚠️#COVID19 deaths in the US continue to ACCELERATE with daily new death now exceeding #Italy.

No signs of slowing.

As I've warned, #coronavirus deaths will continue to skyrocket, until at least ~2-3 weeks AFTER we #FlattenTheCurve of new cases.

The next 4-6 weeks will be hell.
US #coronavirus death continue to DOUBLE every 3 days, with no signs of slowing.

#Italy locked down, and its #COVID19 death toll flattened.

@realDonaldTrump *still* hasn't ordered a nationwide #lockdown, and our death toll is SKYROCKETING.

INACTION = more people DIE.🤬
New daily #coronavirus cases in the US continue to ACCELERATE (~30,000 today), setting the global pace, albeit #China not accurate.

#COVID19 deaths will SKYROCKET for ~2-3 weeks *after* the number of new cases flattens.

Countries with #lockdowns were able to #FlattenTheCurve.👇🏼

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
geodacenter.github.io/covid/map.html#

thread
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

nytimes.com/interactive/20…
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

⚠️#COVID19 deaths in #NYC continue to surge faster than *any* place on Earth, more than DOUBLING every 2 days.

#Michigan now a major US #coronavirus hot zone, followed by NJ and #Louisiana.

The number of new #coronavirus cases in the US continues to explode exponentially with no sign of slowing.

Each day brings more new #COVID19 cases than the prior day, now >20,000 new cases a day – the most in the world.😥

#Spain and #Italy have flattened the curve.

#StayHome
Total US #COVID19 cases continue to set the record and now represent *25% of ALL #coronavirus cases worldwide* (albeit #China doesn't report accurately).

@realDonaldTrump *still* hasn't ordered nationwide #lockdown.

New cases will continue to explode for at least 2-3 weeks.

⚠️#COVID19 deaths in #NYC continue to skyrocket faster than *anywhere* else globally.

#Coronavirus deaths also surging in #Michigan, NJ, and #Louisiana.

#CA and #FL are earlier in their outbreaks, so time and TESTING will tell.

Daily #COVID19 death tolls in the US and UK are *accelerating* in a straight line on a log-scale chart👉🏼deaths are still increasing EXPONENTIALLY.

All other countries had begun slowing the rate of increase in deaths by now.

The US *still* has NOT locked down nationwide.🤬
Daily #COVID19 death tolls are finally flattening in #Italy and #Spain: each new day has FEWER deaths.

In the US (not locked down), the #coronavirus death toll is ACCELERATING: each new day has MORE dead than the last, and the rate of increase is RISING.

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

"Our country is in the midst of a great national trial unlike any we have faced before," begins @POTUS.
Absolutely critical to follow the guidelines for the next 30 days, according to @POTUS who says, "it's a matter of life and death."
Internet "holding up incredibly well," says @POTUS, discussing his call today with network service providers.

For the most part, asthma, hypertension, and diabetes are inequalities — differences that are a direct result of racism, poverty, disinvestment, and other structural barriers — not “pre-existing conditions.”
#publichealth #healthequity #covid19
Here’s an excellent article by @uche_blackstock that provides an overview of the barriers to equitable treatment and other inequalities that emerge during the #covid19 pandemic and similar disasters: #healthequity #phealth
Most US cities have a 15-year gap in life expectancy. Neighborhoods that have seen these catastrophically-high premature death rates for decades, due to inequality, racism, & incarceration, are also likely to be impacted by #covid19 at 2-5 times the rate of affluent areas. #nnip Image

⚠️#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.

📸@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.🤬

⚠️#COVID19 deaths continue to surge in the U.S. as more #coronavirus testing comes online and viral spread continues to accelerate.

#Spain and #France locked down after ~200 deaths; #Italy after 800.

The US has >1,500 deaths and has NOT locked down.

WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR⁉️
New York and Catalonia (#Spain) have the fastest rise in #COVID19 deaths. #Louisiana (New Orleans) and south #Florida are emerging as new #coronavirus "hot zones," surpassing #WA.

#CA has relatively little testing but is also seeing a surge in deaths.

Thread/ Lousiana #COVID19 Yesterday I spoke with healthcare workers in Chicago, New Orleans, Iowa, and NYC - public health officials, nurses, paramedics, medical assistants all increasingly alarmed at the lack of response to #COVID19 and startling lack of protocols in place
This is about #NOLA my home for several years my daughter attended school in the French Quarter in the days before Katrina and disaster tourism and the city caring more about infrastructure for the Superbowl than the cracking concrete in the Lower 9th Ward inthesetimes.com/article/14428/…
