1/ Today we welcome @DrBMBrawner as a guest Nerdy Girl to discuss racial disparities and #COVID19. She is an Associate Professor at the @PennNursing and a nurse practitioner.

Q. Why are we seeing such disparities in #COVID cases and deaths?
2/ A. One word: racism. Individual, institutional, and structural.
There is no biological basis for “race,” even though people in these groups can share genetic traits. Race is a socially constructed way to categorize people that has changed over time, location, etc.
3/ This presents a challenge when these categorizations were used to deem non-Whites to be inferior, with laws and systems put in place to enforce and maintain this declaration.

1/ THREAD: Becoming a Published Author in a Pandemic
I published my first academic paper in the American Chemical Society Chemical Neuroscience (what?!) called “Heralding Healthcare Professionals: Recognition of Neurological Deficits in COVID-19” with the incredible @AMannanBaig!

#TestTrackAndTrace is being launched. I'm gathering my thoughts as to how effective it will be:

These thoughts are all my own, and whist a member of @RenewParty they do not necessarily reflect their position.

Hope you enjoy the read.

We needed ventilators, so we ordered them from a tractor maker & a vacuum maker.
We cancelled the orders when we realised it was easier to order them from ventilator makers.
We needed large amounts of #PPE to be distributed so we drafted in the Army.
We then realised we didn't have the PPE to be distributed and blamed nurses for using too much of it.
Individuals stared making scrubs from home.

My stance and thread on June 1st #schoolsreopening just so the #dfe don't bully you with blind Science... I think the way #DominicCummnings was treated totally different to anyone else sums up the real lack of trust from the #government from Parents and teachers alike. 1/3
We wanted to start with Y6 on June 1st in bubbles BUT only 9/46 wanted the kids to return. Sadly this is not possible now as only 50% of the #PPE order has arrived. Im not opening my school (other than #Keyworkers / #vulnerables) until I can guarantee staff and children's safety
I am not willing to have the #DFE blood on my hands. The disaster in the #carehomes and with #edenred shows their decisions are pretty 'rubbish'. Thus following the RA, Y6 return June 15th ... Y1 June 29th (if things go well) and Rec July 13th. I have full Gov backing and....

ICYMI: Last week we announced our robust $1 billion plan to box in #COVID19 across Wisconsin, focusing on testing, contact tracing, operations, and resources for local communities. #Thread
This plan includes a $260 million investment in testing efforts to ensure that everyone who needs a test, gets a test.
Hand in hand with testing, we have to ramp up contacting tracing. Our plan includes critical investments in contact tracer staff and in our local county and tribal health departments to make sure we are contacting and isolating those who have had contact with the virus quickly.

Pourquoi vouloir réduire le nucléaire d'ici à 2035 ?

How did US #neurologists experience the initial response to #COVID19? Find out in our survey now published online in @GreenJournal! @AkankshaMD @jillfarmmovedoc @DianaGCMD @LaFaverMD @kimaneurologist @AANMember
The survey was distributed via social media in March 2020 and received 561 responses from US #neurologists in practice. While 87% were provided #PPE by their institutions, 45% were asked to reuse PPE more than once.
Practices to limit #COVID19 exposure and advice on #selfquarantine varied widely. 43% of #neurologists with known exposure were advised to continue seeing patients unless/until symptomatic, and only 12% were offered immediate testing.

An important thread on #COVID19, #PPE, and what I and my not-for-profit ayeMail are going to do to help.

This is for everybody. ❤️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
Over the past few weeks I've been horrified by stories of the lack of PPE in the NHS, care homes, and for home carers.

I'm equally horrified by the sky-rocketing prices of essential life-saving equipment, with many companies cashing in.

So I decided to do something about it.
I got together with a couple of friends, and we've spent the last two weeks scouring manufacturers and wholesalers to source (relatively) affordable PPE including face masks, visors and gloves.

The situation is pretty grim, with suppliers worldwide *massively* hiking prices.

La classe medica italiana è del tutto immune da questi fenomeni. Non parliamo poi di quella siciliana.
E poi, la cosa più importante è la riuscita dell'operazione principale, quella di fare proteggere i cugini barbieri. 2/

BREAKING: Americans want their sense of normalcy back - but not at the cost of people’s lives. Today 20 bipartisan health care leaders and I joined forces to outline how our government can #OpenSafely amid COVID-19. 1/…
Experts Mark McClellan, @EricTopol, @juliettekayyem, @cmyeatom, @DrLeanaWen, @T_Inglesby, @Bill_George, @bfrist, @DavidBrailer and others (tagged in pic) built this plan because Americans don’t need to choose between a good economy and the public’s health. They go together. 2/
Despite efforts by some to turn COVID-19 into a partisan political football, Americans have sacrificed with great unity to reduce the infection rate, support our front line health care workers, and save lives and are equally unified in wanting to #OpenSafely. 3/

Q @steeletalk: “How much did they pay for these Chinese suppliers? A: They won’t say that either. That’s nobody’s business! In one case they believe a supplier in People’s Republic #China was prepaid $100M. What happened with the shipment, we don’t know.” 3/...

Gove says ‘schools are safe!’- UK Govt advice “if child develops #COVID19 symptoms at school “they must be sent home...If a child is awaiting collection, they should be moved, if possible, to a room where they can be isolated behind a closed door-Thread👇🏽
..depending on age of child & with appropriate adult supervision if required. Ideally, a window should be opened for ventilation. If it is not possible to isolate them, move them to an area which is at least 2 metres away from other people🙈…
If they need to go to the bathroom while waiting to be collected, they should use a separate bathroom if possible. The bathroom should be cleaned & disinfected using standard cleaning products before being used by anyone else.

The #HeroesAct, the #coronavirus bill we are voting on today, contains several important priorities I fought for. While the bill could go further, I’m pleased with much of what we secured. 1/12
The bill boosts funds for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (#SNAP) by 15%. In my district, I’ve seen lines at local food banks. Families need this assistance. 2/12
It provides a second round of more substantial economic stimulus payments consisting of $1,200 per family member, and up to $6,000 per household to ease the financial burden that many are experiencing due to #COVID19. 3/12

Like many, I’ve had some extra fee time these days... After rebinging @theofficenbc and #theofficereunion I was inspired.

A thread of Trump’s handling of the #coronavirus (#COVID19) pandemic, as told by Michael Scott. #TheOffice
Way back in 2018, Trump decided it was a good idea to disassemble the #Pandemic Response Team – created by the Obama administration in case there was “an airborne disease that is deadly.” This can’t go wrong! #thiswaspreventable
Trump does nothing to replace this. He plays golf and insults people on Twitter – just the normal things that presidents do right?

A week ago I completed my third week of #COVID19 inpatient service over a five-week period. I have been reflecting on this experience and wanted to share a few clinical insights and a great deal of gratitude. I'll start with the gratitude! 1/9
1st- thank you to @JBPritzker & @LoriLightfoot for their polices to #FlattenTheCurve allowing hospitals to have beds/resources needed for patient care. Thanks also to early/ongoing efforts of local advocates for #stayathome policies! cc @futuredocs @LJoyZ_MD @ShikhaJainMD 2/9
2nd- thanks to all that helped acquire & distribute #PPE. One of my greatest fears was no/limited #PPE during my laters service wks. This fear has not been realized thx to incredible efforts by: government (@JBPritzker & @LoriLightfoot), @UChicagoMed, & local #PPENow leaders 3/9

Marketers hired by hospitals can be new source of exploitation

They know that the most credibility is with nurses & doctors

So will use employees for marketing & extension of hospital brand

But quick to penalize same employees for own, personal use of #SoMe

=Value extraction
I mean, personally, I built my reputation outside of hospital activities

I created, as volunteer, used no hospital or university resources, paid my own travel or obtained community grants, then yes, was recognized internally after creating external success, like this:
Or like this - I do all of this on own. No one trained me. I pay membership fees to LinkedIn

If I were to mess up, I’d need to deal with consequences from hospital, licensing bodies, etc

Wherever I go, I contribute to good optics & metrics…

Really worrying feedback from young doctors in Mumbai. #ThinkAboutIt they say. No leader or sr bureaucrat wants to visit COVID hospitals in PPE. Even the investigation into #SionHospital episode will happen on Zoom or video conference! @d_s_thakur @sardesairajdeep @sanjaynagral
The doctors at #SionHospital , especially residents who do the heavy lifting are utterly demoralised at the transfer of a hard-working Dean who was desperately trying to cope in trying conditions! Insensitive Govt.
Doctors say the pressure to suppress Covid19 positive cases is enormous and the solution is NOT testing. They cite specific cases where even exposed doctors are not allowed tests under instructions from “seniors “. Morale dipping badly, cases rising rapidly. All want #BodyBags
