Let's Start a Thread of Train Derailments/Disasters involving Toxic Chemicals in the last 2 weeks. I'm sure it's all just a coincidence. 🤔 Starts with Ohio. #OhioChemicalDisaster #intentioanal
#2 Coincidence is Houston Trail Derailment.

#3 (Coincidence) is Kissamee Florida. Not a train this time, just a huge Chemical Fire.

Health Affairs has extensively covered the #COVID19 #pandemic this year. As #2020 draws to a close, we consider 10 of the lessons that have emerged from that coverage: 1/11
1) Mandating #facemasks in public is associated with a decline in the daily #COVID19 growth rate: (Wei Lyu and George Wehby of @uiowa) 2/11
2) #COVID19 emergency #sickleave has reduced confirmed cases: (@StefanPEcon of @ETH_en et al.) 3/11

1/ Q: When can we reunite the #grandparents and #grandchildren?

A: Efforts to protect grandparents, a higher risk group for #COVIDー19 complications, are really hard on everyone! As #ShelterInPlace orders lift, here are some things to consider when making plans to reunite:
2/ This is not personal. Balancing life-threatening risks to grandparents, while limiting the negative effects of
#IsolationLife, is no easy feat.
Adding germy, unpredictable small kids to this mix makes things even more complicated.
3/ Differences in opinions across generations can breed additional distress in an already stressful time. Stick to the facts. Listen to each other with #Respect.

Q: #ShelterInPlace orders are beginning to lift in my area. What activities are safe to resume?

A: While the safest thing to do is stay at home, the next phase of the pandemic will require each of us to make choices on how to resume.

Some key points:
🧼 Physical distance, masks, and hand washing will remain important pillars of infection control for the foreseeable future.
👥 Avoid crowded spaces, especially indoors.
😷 Make the least risky choices when resuming activities.
👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Consider how your actions could affect the health and wellness of others when making choices.

Governors across the nation have eased harsh restrictions related to the #CCPVirus or are planning to start soon.

Here’s the current #Lockdown situation with each state and #WashingtonDC. (Thread👇)…
Alabama | Reopening started April 30 as @GovernorKayIvey loosened her #StayAtHome.

“As of this week, we no longer believe our hospitals will see an overwhelming amount of ICU patients who need ventilators, as we once believed, and that is sure good news.”
Alaska | @GovDunleavy allowed some sectors of the #Economy to begin reopening on April 24.

“Alaskans must be able to visit their doctors, pay rent, and buy food for their families.”

Q: What might socializing look like when #ShelterInPlace orders are lifted?

A: #SocialDistancing will remain important when shelter-in-place orders are lifted. More about what to expect in this thread
For many regions, the elements needed to reopen society have not yet been achieved:
📉declining rates of infection,
🧪adequate testing supply, and
👥the ability to trace the contacts of new infections to appropriately isolate and treat.
When shelter-in-place orders are lifted, restructuring social networks is one approach to minimizing the spread of infection.

As an ER doc in Michigan seeing @realdonaldtrump encourage protestors in our capital, I'm deeply concerned about the impact it will have on my patients. With hundreds gathering in close quarters, the potential spread of #coronavirus puts my community at risk. Here’s how: (1/14)
Over 300 people were there & it's estimated that 5-10% of the population are infected. If just 30 were infected (with an R0 of 2.5 and a 5 day incubation), those 30 people could result in nearly 11,000 newly infected Michiganders in 1 month - all thanks to these protests. (2/14)
The protesters donning TRUMP signs & MAGA hats say they were there to fight @GovWhitmer’s #StayHomeStaySafe order & extension of emergency powers. Well, gathering in the way they did is exactly how to ensure we'll be living under *stricter* #shelterinplace in coming weeks. (3/14)

As an ER doctor in a rural hospital, I have serious concerns over @realdonaldtrump’s "plan" to #OpenAmericaUpAgain. While the framework seems logical, the entire plan depends, in Dr. Birx’s words, on “the persistence of high level testing.” Here’s my concern: (1/9)
There's a real danger in opening too soon. "Hot spots" still haven’t defined the true number of cases due to a lack of testing -- and not testing asymptomatic people. In my area, we are nowhere near a peak and could create a hot spot that could overwhelm my hospital. (2/9)
In rural hospitals like mine, we run with limited resources of staffing on a regular basis. Just a handful of critically ill #COVID19 patients above our baseline could stretch our one nighttime respiratory therapist too thin and jeopardize patient care. (3/9)

Thread: Something happened in my home state of Michigan today that made me sad. I wasn't going to comment initially, but then I went to Facebook & saw people I grew up w, who know my husband and I are physicians and call us for medical advice, were defending these actions.
I was flabbergasted that there are educated people who still don't understand the importance of #SocialDistancing in this #COVID19 global pandemic. Here is what happened in Michigan. I will try and respond to some of the inaccurate info still out there.…
MYTH: #SocialDistancing is the govts way of overreaching and taking away civil liberties
FACT: Govts didn't enforce #ShelterInPlace bc they want to take away rights. There is no political gain for shutting down a state. The gain is saving lives by slowing spread of the virus.

I live in a predominately white neighborhood on the North Side, and I think it's important y'all see what "closed" parks and beaches look like up here as compared to the South and West Sides #COVID19 #ShelterInPlace #StayHome
Today (a holiday with relatively cold/dreary weather) I saw people strolling, jogging, walking their dogs, even picnicking #COVID19 #ShelterInPlace #StayHome
Folks were playing frisbee, baseball, basketball, soccer, generally living their best lives #COVID19 #ShelterInPlace #StayHome

Dr. Bonnie Maldonado (@StanfordPeds) shares #COVID19 updates at the @StanfordEMED Town Hall.
🦠immunity is not durable once infected
🦠animals get coronas, and do NOT infect humans. However, human coronavirus on animal furs can spread the virus.

#PerspectiveNOTPanic #EMConf
Nasal swabs is a better test. A lot more virus in the nose than other parts of the body, which may explain droplet precaution.

#COVID19 #perspectiveNOTpanic #GetUsPPE #safetyfirst
Shedding may occur up to 48 hours before symptomatic. Asymptomatic may have lower viral load, and may not be as infectious, BUT STILL DO SHED AND ARE INFECTIOUS.

By 14 days, most people stop shedding.

Runs & walks with my 🐶 have ⬆️ big time due to #ShelterInPlace & #physicaldistancing. Audiobooks have provided a MUCH needed escape from all things #COVID19.

Willow and I have a list of a few recs from recent listens—and revisits!

Y’all ready?
Read this in years ago but revisited the “Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl” on audio. Selma Blair’s narration is sublime—so good!

Bored at home? Try 2+ years in a dank annex with 7 grown-ass people. And fear.

Yet Anne STILL had quick wit and jokes. Perspective anyone?
Okay—so disclaimer: I’m a HUGE JT fan so jumped at the short autobiographical “Break Shot.” Narrated by who? JT!


(Me fainting with joy) But awake now & can say that I LOVED it. I had no idea his dad was a doctor. What a story—so eye-opening!

And he plays music!

It has grieved me to see the current day suffering of my Asian-American friends during the #Coronavirusoutbreak. The first thing I thought of was @the18yearplan's clarifying essay on #ThreePillarsofWhiteSupremacy. It explains it perfectly. 1/
Andrea @the18yearplan is in this Twitter-TeachIn, so all can refer to her thread for more. I'll reflect on one central point that rises to the surface for me... 2/ #evangelicals4justice #covid19 #racism
"Whiteness," as political construct, was created to determine who ordained to rule. White supremacy believes white people were created to rule and steward everything. Everyone else is cast as a threat or a commodity to white stewardship. 2/ #evangelicals4justice #covid19 #racism

Time to go deep. Almost EVERY Black woman I know is single (except for a few). Literally. #Covid19 has highlighted the reality of our social location in a painful way. #ShelterInPlace order has had a particularly isolating impact on Black women. #evangelicals4justice #racism 1/
Many, many of us are not sheltered with family or friends. We are sheltered alone. I've found a particularly heightened level of anxiety among single Black women, because of the level of vulnerability. 2/ #evangelicals4justice #covid19 #racism
This is abt racism b/c it traces to the breaking of Black families through slavery, jim crow and poverty. Literal hierarchy of desirability moves Black men (especially evangelical) to marry non-Black women far more often. 3/ #evangelicals4justice #covid19 #racism

Debates around how to respond to the plague in early Islamic Syria mirror those of today. The great scholar and historian al-Ṭabarī (d. 928) wrote of the Plague of Emmaus (Arabic: عمواس, ʻAmwās), which struck Syria in 639 during the Islamic conquest, killing 25,000. #coronavirus
The historian Ibn 'Asākir was so moved by descriptions of the suffering of the people of 'Amwās that he added a poem of lamentation and martyrdom to his great history of Damascus.
The Prophet Muhammad was believed by many to have essentially prescribed #SocialDistancing and #ShelterInPlace, prohibiting flight from a plague-stricken community. Yet as always in Islam, different legal arguments arose, justified by references to different Prophetic traditions.

Many of us are going to have trouble coping in one way or another during this pandemic.

Further along in the thread, I’ll list some strategies that are useful for getting through a #ShelterInPlace order that’ll soon be coming to a city or town near you.

Or should be!
Are you feeling...

🔹out of sorts
🔹stressed and/or anxious

These feelings are SO understandable.

There have been MAJOR disruptions to our lives including job losses, having to work at home, scrambling for child care, kids at home and other losses.
If you have preexisting mental health issues, this period of time may be even more challenging.

Be sure to stay in touch with your health care team. Many clinics and even private practitioners are switching to Telehealth as I type.

Continuity of medications is important! 💕💕

Since people are lying like dogs about the @DanPatrick segment on #TuckerCarlson, a summary: His point is that now that we have been immersed in the logic of wise practices, we should soon allow the option to reclaim our lives. #coronavirus #StayHome #COVID19
He wants to be able to get back to work, practicing all the proper precautions we have now been drilled on. If people wish to #ShelterInPlace, fine. But forcing it on the country will destroy countless lives. #coronavirus #StayHome #COVID19
If dishonest scare tactics are one form of leadership (the #DallasCounty @JudgeClayJ 430K dead in Texas by June threat), then this is surely an alternative view worthy of discussion. #coronavirus #StayHome #COVID19

Wuhan sacrificed to buy us time. Italy sacrificed to buy us time. Now 100s of millions of Americans are sacrificing their liberty, livelihoods, and wellbeing—which for some will ultimately mean sacrificing their lives—to buy us time. What are our leaders doing with this time?
Where is the plan to manufacture and distribute the #PPE protective gear our health-care workers need to safely stay at the bedside and care for the thousands who are about to be desperately ill?
Where is the plan to manufacture and distribute the #ventilators that will save lives?

Now is our window of opportunity to prevent catastrophe.

We must intensify our public health efforts to halt transmission and to support those who are isolating.

@akashgoel Thank you @DrRobDavidson for bringing this message to the American people.
