1) B.C. made this critical, life-saving change to staffing in #LongTermCare on Mar. 31.

@AndrewRankinCB@nsgov took 2 weeks to enact another PHAC guideline to limit nursing home workers from working at multiple LTC facilities. That #COVID19NS thechronicleherald.ca/news/ns-govern…
2) policy came into effect in Nova Scotia on April 23.

(In early April, many Nova Scotians were asking why NS wasn’t adopting the BC model, which included ensuring our #HealthcareHeroes were giving FT hrs at 1 facility. #nspoli
3) As early as March 13, Nova Scotia healthcare unions were united in their call to @nshealth for PPE’s - #N95masks specifically - for all frontline workers.

Those calls were ignored.

With only a few days to go before the most comprehensive #lockdown announced by GoI comes to an end, participated in a VC with Hon PM to discuss the exit strategy to deal with fallout from #COVIDー19 Crisis & ways to kick start the #economy. Made the following suggestions.(1/n)
1. TESTING: Use Rapid test kits to segregate the people into red, yellow & green zones. Empowering employers to test their workforce, will reduce the burden on Govt and create green zones of productivity and help get economy back on track. (2/n)
2. #supplychain: They are extremely important to get the economy moving even in a partial manner. Allowing trucks to #transport goods and other #materials is vital for the #economy. The Govt might also consider ensuring Road side facilities for the drivers' #welfare. (3/n)

Our civil rights are being trampled by lying politicians, cooperating police and military.

#COVID19
Status of COVID-19
As of 19 March 2020, COVID-19 is no longer considered to be a high consequence infectious diseases (HCID) in the #UK. Mortality rates are low overall, #COVID19 should no longer be classified as an HCID 🤔

I posted about sourcing #N95masks for #coronavirus in an earlier tweet, now here’s more about sourcing #testingkits, #ventilators etc. and how I got my kits. Supply-chain is fascinating. Storm 👇
There are multiple approaches to testing. The fastest is an antibody blood test I got. A more accurate approach is RT-PCR via a nasal swab. It’s slower since it requires a lab to process the samples. Many countries use both tests for each patient.
If you are trying to source the antibody test, most testing kits now test for both IgG and IgM in *a single kit*, and cost around $10 for each test. It shows results in 15 mins like a pregnancy test. Most of these kits are mass produced in China.
