What we've been missing, below the surface, about #COVID19. The focus has been on confirmed cases, hospitalizations and deaths. But there's so much more we've been learning. United States data here
2. Let's start with the excess deaths, attributed to non-covid19 diagnoses. Here's a sampling to show excess causes of death in March-May in many places was likely inaccurately categorized. The estimates of actual covid-19 deaths suggests an additional >40,000 fatalities
3. Now the missed cases from lack of testing availability, mild/moderate symptoms that did not lead to testing, false negatives tests, and those never having discernible symptoms. Asymptomatics comprise at least 30% those infected

UK folks who're finding it difficult to buy masks. Here is nugget for you.

These are some high quality masks on Amazon. I got few packs of these masks for my family in UK. They're 3 ply masks & work really well. Much better than usual ones. #Masks

Also I got a half dozen of the carbon filter activated masks for my family in UK. These are must when moving/travelling in congested areas like markets or train etc. Must buy at least one for each member of your family. #Masks

These are best quality masks in UK. They're also certified by Amazon Health Standard program. Don't buy masks from random sellers. They're dropshipped from China & most of them are defective. Don't get yourself infected for few pennies. #buymasks #masks #MasksForAll

I'm correcting the title @TheEconomist
Supportive global data for the vital use of masks

In contrast, via @MollyJongFast, the ignorant people who ignore the data
And why did Japan do so well without a lockdown and so little testing?
Masks.
They gave masks out to 50 million households. An expert panel believes this was the main reason for their success.

Reviews all the relevant and recent data ★
—Emphasis on "super-emitters" and asymptomatic carriers who can spread via both droplets and aerosol
—Lack of the 6 feet safe distance
—Would add Japan to the countries w/ marked success d/t masks
H/T @hholdenthorp
my 2 favorite sentences from this outstanding essay
—taking on the 6-feet rule and WHO for an ancient citation
—visualizing aerosol transmission via smelling cigarette smoke

Let's journey back on the #FireTheSG movement, shall we?

December 2018, @Surgeon_General @JeromeAdamsMD convinced the public #media, inflating a false "epidemic" w/30-day use, not daily.

Lie #1: vapinglinks.blog/2019/01/06/epi…

Based on feelings, Google alerts, potential & inaccuracy.
No refuting vaping products help smokers quit, 👆above, continues below...

With #data he wanted to present, sentiment and "feelings" continued.

Lie #2: rodutobaccotruth.blogspot.com/2019/11/high-s…

Indifferent, bans & taxes ⏫increasing countrywide, & no care of helping smokers quit.

#FireTheSG
False statements, accusations continued. When corrected, he didn't like that and had to swallow his narrative.

In full, with @2Vaping, @TheLegionCmdr, @Surgeon_General & others:

“If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth“

Sobering report. Standard epidemiological protocol: Isolate virus; contact-tracing & testing of ppl; Quarantine infected #Coronavirus must be seen in terms of State Capacity & Public Health axis. Pointless along authoritarian-democratic axis when set of things done is similar.
Global Cooperation between virologists, health workers thru WHO & China's & US CDC has been a shining example to humanity. Important to take a step back and remember that we are in a forever war w microbes. Many more of them than us... #coronavirus
Fantastic resource: interactive map of #coronavirus infections and deaths around the world. Data from CDCs/WHO.
