2. In Mongolia, a country which shares a land border with China, mask wearing, on top of other measures, was enforced by the government in January. There are currently 11 cases and 0 deaths, demonstrating mask wearings clear effectiveness #Mongolia
3. A University of Michigan study found that, in relation to the common flu, a combination of good hand washing etiquette and mask wearing could slow transmission of the disease by up to 75%. And the masks used need not be the most expensive ones available. @UniversityofMic

#Masks4All is a must in #Pakistan to fight #COVID19.

#Czech Republic with community effort got to 100% mask usage in 10 days all thru local DIY effort
They have only 2 deaths with NO growth in daily new #COVID2019 cases.

We can learn from president of #Taiwan who led a nationwide effort to mass produce in-demand PPE Personal Protection Equipment, leading to capability to manufacturer 10mil surgical #masks per day.

They invested massively & brought down Taiwan’s cases to lowest in the world.

#Pakistan manufacturers over $24bil of textile products per month & this capacity could easily be directed towards producing PPE especially #Masks.

Graphs with light turquoise lines in these charts show flat curves because in these countries everyone wears a mask in public!

🗽NY Governor Andrew Cuomo is the leader filling the chasm of incompetence under Trump.

Today’s briefing provided facts, reality, wisdom, hope.
—young ppl get & transfer #COVID19
—15168 cases in NY—4812 new—13% hospitalized
—29192 in US
—America will overcome & be greater for it
This is Trump’s level of competence: A sharpie crossing out “corona” and writing in “Chinese” virus.

All he knows is demagoguery & disinformation. Media must stop giving him airtime—oxygen for both. Do it to save lives. #coronavirus #COVID19 #QuarantineTrumpsPropaganda

This is the real truth about #facemasks, I've been an insider. Hospitals and health departments were all warned repeatedly over the last 20 years that they had to stockpile large amounts of #PPE including respirator #masks well before any #pandemic 1/9
because large amounts couldn't be made at short notice as these are high tech products and need high tech factories (lead time for a new factory is two years). Despite these warnings governments and health providers mostly ignored the advice, and now a pandemic has arrived 2/9
and they have been caught out just as predicted. Health providers and governments are now blaming some of this shortfall on panic buying by the public, but actually it is mostly panic buying by hospitals coupled with high demand from hospitals and no spare capacity in supply. 3/9

Summary of #coronavirus #COVID19 webinar by @JohnsHopkinsIH yesterday:
🔹 No country is fully prepared for an epidemic
🔹 during Ebola outbreak, 10% of tweets had bad info
🔹 Others were rumors about govt conspiracies
🔹 Others were chaos inducing tweets
🔹Propaganda blames various different populations, give rise to discrimination
🔹 There is NO CURE for #COVIDー19
🔹 There is no foolproof preventative
🔹 Surgical masks are NOT EFFECTIVE
🔹N95 #Masks are needed by medical staff. We need them to stay healthy. DON'T stockpile
🔹Community transmission - identify (testing), isolate (hospital), inform (community, health authorities)
🔹Long term care facilities have older, less heathy populations. DON'T visit them if sick. When visiting, use good #hand hygiene
🔹Facility workers should use masks

The numbers of the #Wuhan #Coronavirus infected, recovered & died, have been updated this morning.

They are admitting an overnight increase of 15,000 new cases in 24 hrs!

It's been edging up consistently at a much lower rate.
See graphic:…
2) The reported militarization of #Wuhan's #P4Lab has raised new questions about the origin of the #Covid19Virus & the apparent cover-up that has occurred since it was 1st made public.
3) #Japan reports their 1st #Wuhan death.

Then they let out that there are 44 sick on cruise liner offshore...

🤔They're doing the same thing off the #NewJersey coast. They've got a cruise ship, w/people infected w/the virus, docked or moored offshore . They brought 4 sick ....

Scattered picture emerging out of #China manufacturing sector on when factories reopen. Key points: don’t expect them to open on Feb 10 - initial date set by authorities. Expect inconsistency, overzealous local officials, & mask shortage to drag out restart in #globalsupplychain.
In #Guangdong Province, there is no official notice on when factories should reopen. However, many localities urging companies to stay shut until Mar 1. For eg., Lecong county in city of #Foshan encourages all companies not to resume work until Mar 1.
Police of Huangpu district in city of #Zhongshan posted on their social media WeChat account companies shouldn’t resume work before Mar 1 without permission.

This weekend, demonstrators attempted to tear down some of the city's 50 newly-installed "smart lamp posts" - which have #cameras & #sensors - in a #protest against perceived government #surveillance.
