Thread: Predicting #COVID deaths in the US from 8k to 100k.

I started predicting the US COVID death toll ~2 months ago. All of my predictions to date have proven accurate. The most painful predictions I have ever made.

Why have we failed to stop the #coronavirus in the US?

1/
My first prediction on Apr 4 (toll @ 8k) was for the Easter Sunday (20k):



2/
In my Apr 12 thread (toll @ 20k), I explained the fundamental systems concepts for the #coronavirus epidemic:

1/ THREAD: Memorial Day in a Pandemic

I often struggle with #MemorialDay. With the calls for celebration and happiness on this day. For BBQs and summer fun.

Because nothing about this day is happy.

This day is about #grief. About tragedy. About #death and loss.

🇺🇸 😔 😢
2/ Above all, it is a day of RESPECT. Because Americans gave their lives in service to protect the citizens and country of the United States.

The lives they previously dreamt of were cut short. And that selfless gift of life is one of the highest honors to serve your country. Image
3/ But their husbands and wives will never kiss their spouses again. Their children will never hug their mothers or fathers again. It doesn’t change the visceral grief of parents losing their children to #prematuredeath. #memorialdayweekend2020 Image

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

As the unfortunate news comes that an 82 yo NYC woman has succumbed to #Coronavirus #Covid19, I want to briefly revisit issue of case fatality rate (CFR). We STILL (even two weeks later) do not know.

nytimes.com/2020/03/14/nyr… 1/x
Let's look at #NYState. It is one of the largest outbreaks. Today is 1st death from over 400 cases (0.2% CFR). The CFR may grow, as some active patients might worsen; but it is also a reflection that the outbreak occurred in a younger and healthier community, generally. 2/x
Much like Westchester, above, where the superspreading mostly occurred in NYS, there is similar concentrated outbreak among employees/visitors/contacts of Biogen, MOSTLY in #Massachusetts. NO deaths. And relatively few hospitalized. 3/x

THREAD (1/8) #YangGang, I want to spark a wider discussion on focusing our efforts to move forward. Twitter isn’t a great medium for discussion but I want to get the word out as much as I can.

Running the @Yang2020Mass account, I’m seeing a lot of anger in my feed lately.
(2/8) I get it: the establishment, the media, and some supporters of other candidates did a number on @AndrewYang, yet sing praise about him now. You want justice, you want to shout how wrong they are. I want to tell you how that’s not a winning strategy.
(3/8) If we want to make things right, we have to follow in the footsteps of what #HumanityFirst means. In order to make sure Yang’s movement continues, we need to seek out and make allies, not enemies. If others are being hostile, that’s on them and let them harm themselves.

In 2008, #Massachusetts stepped into a global #climate leadership position w/passage of the landmark Global Warming Solutions Act. This year, it has the opportunity to renew that leadership and rejoin the climate vanguard by passing H.3983, the "2050 Roadmap Act." A thread... 1/
Today I delivered a letter to @RepMichlewitz @SpeakerDeLeo & Sen Prez @karenspilka from 37 academic scholars & experts on #energy & #climatechange calling attention to the 2050 Roadmap Bill, which would put #Massachusetts on a path to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. 2/
The #Massachussetts 2050 Roadmap Bill, sponsored by @JoanMeschino (👏) + supported by 59 legislators, provides a timely update to the regulatory framework established by the Global Warming Solutions Act and a critical opportunity to renew the commonwealth’s climate leadership. 3/

In honor of the #LaborDay2019 , here are some immigrants and/or POC* laboring mightily in #immigrationlaw, policy, & media you should know about.

Be sure to give them a follow if you don't already!

*I'll try not to make this too New England-centric, but probably will anyway
Let's start with a hometown hero:

Antonio Massa Viana (@MassaVianaLaw) was the 1st undocumented immigrant admitted to practice as a lawyer in #Massachusetts. He demonstrates total dedication to his local Brazilian community and beyond every day.

🗞️Via @DailyMail source, familiar with Maxwell's new life:

🗣️"She's become a real homebody, rarely ventures out. She's the antithesis of the woman who traveled extensively and partied constantly with Epstein."

@DailyMail 🔥Attorney General Bill Barr on Monday:

🗣️"Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice and they will get it."

The Trump Administration's new #PublicCharge rule is cruel, immoral, and mean-spirited. It prevents hardworking, low-income taxpayers who are here legally from using or even applying for programs that they qualify for.
This will have a devastating impact on thousands of families in #Massachusetts. Let's be clear here: there is already a public charge rule on the books. The only goal of this dramatic expansion is to tell families they're not welcome unless they are wealthy and white.
Think about this: Trump's own @DHSgov said this change could result in “worse outcomes, including increased prevalence of obesity and malnutrition, especially for pregnant or breastfeeding women”, and “increased rates of poverty and housing instability.”

🚜TOMORROW: I'm kicking off a two-day, district-wide farm tour to hear directly from farmers in central and western Massachusetts.

Here's why. (hint: it's #ClimateChange)
🌡️Raising temperatures.
🦗Invasive species.
🌪️Drought and unstable weather.

Small family farms in Massachusetts are on the front lines of #ClimateChange. We need policies that help — yet too often, the rich and powerful write laws that favor big corporate farms instead.
⌛️This isn't some far-off threat.

Family farms are already losing money and producing less because of climate change. Yet in the halls of Congress, there's not nearly enough people listening to the farmers that are bearing the brunt of this crisis.

1/ Frustrated and stuck on the @MBTA? Here’s a thread for your morning commute, and a reminder of why the transit system’s main funding source has fallen far short of expectations:
2/ The @MBTA has relied on the “penny on the sales tax” since 2001. At the time, the state thought sales tax revenue would continue to grow by 3 to 8% per year as it had. In 2007, 3% was still “worst case scenario”.
3/ Actual growth of sales tax has, in fact, averaged 1.5% — half what leaders expected. This is partly because of changes in what people buy. Further, the “penny on the sales tax” portion that the @MBTA gets doesn’t include meals.

1/ Today I'm in the #Boston USCIS office trying to--well, more on that in a minute, but I'm trying to do a thing that can only be done in person, and which would have been as easy as walking in and asking for a cashier just a few months ago. Here's how it's gone so far.
2/ USCIS used to offer "Infopass" appointments, a sort of 15-minute slot where you can sit down with an actual USCIS employee to check in on your case, clear up issues, get a stamp in your passport or emergency travel privileges, etc. You could schedule them online

I miss them
3/ Instead of scheduling these #immigration appointments online (or even walking in for emergencies and/or paying fees as I am today) you now have to schedule everything on the phone. This means at least 20 minutes of interminable flute loops before reaching a human.

I'll make this simple. If there's a single brave person with means willing to give @BINJreports
$2 million, we can immediately remediate much of this damage and restore integrity to news coverage in many of these communities: givetobinj.org amp.businessinsider.com/gatehouse-medi…
If you think I am wrong, or exaggerating, look at what we've done with a grand here and a grand there. Ask the editors - #Gatehouse ones included - for whom we have provided the only deep #longform reporting they have done in years. Again: givetobinj.org
I am so tired of this happening. These sickening conglomerates stepping on democracy in Mass. They don't care. We do. We have solutions. We have talent. We work with the people who have been screwed by #Gatehouse. Like I said, givetobinj.org

1/ My first client as a solo practitioner shared his name with the protagonist of "1984."

His crime?

Talking to a white woman.

In #Massachusetts.

In 2008.

He was convicted under a weirdass 17-century MA statute, and he was doing 6 months for it when we met.

#mapoli
2/ I was impressed when I first came here to learn that there are still colonial-era laws in effect in the Commonwealth.

Like this one, charged in pertinent part as Accosting & Annoying a Person of the Opposite Sex. Sounds like something you'd be put in stocks for, right?
3/ (Quick footnote:

The law was recently amended to remove reference to "the opposite sex" so that the charge is merely "accosting and annoying a person." This is because making the victim's gender an element of a crime is both highly problematic & blatantly unconstitutional.)

🔥🌊#DEMOCRATS Serving in State Legislatures🌊🔥

Please read this thread to see why you MUST not vote for any constitutional convention resolutions!

🐺No subject is safe, including left wing causes that all #Democrats favor. You are being duped w/ these resolutions (links 👇).
🐺Language used by Wolf PAC is meant to tempt Democrats, but Constitutional Conventions are extremely dangerous to anyone whose last name isn’t KOCH.

Please don't open Pandora's Box.

#UnKochAmerica
#NoConCon4Anything
ℹ Language now used in Resolutions used to lure #Democrats include:

🐺Free & Fair Elections
🐺Repeal Citizens United
🐺Election Integrity
🐺Limits on Political Contributions & Expenditures
🐺“Limited” Convention

Why are all calls for Constitutional Conventions dangerous?
