2/ Τις τελευταίες ημέρες, η εργαστηριακή εξέταση δειγμάτων ανά ημέρα έχει σχεδόν διπλασιαστεί, οδηγώντας και σε ταχύτερο εντοπισμό των θετικών κρουσμάτων. Αυτό σημαίνει ότι, τουλάχιστον σε κάποιο βαθμό, θα εξηγούσε την απότομη αυτή αύξηση του αριθμού των θετικών περιστατικών.
3/ Επιπλέον, η ημέρα λήψης δείγματος μπορεί να ποικίλει από άτομο σε άτομο, καθιστώντας τον αριθμό των ανακοινωθέντων κρουσμάτων όχι άμεσα ανάλογο της ημερήσιας αύξησης.

Done by economists Sergio Correia, Stephan Luck & Emil Verner looks at economic impact of the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic in the US. Combining mortality & economic variables with evidence on local implementation of so-called non-pharmaceutical interventions (#SocialDistancing)(2/5)
Cities that implemented aggressive social distancing & shutdowns to contain the virus came out looking better. Implementing these policies eight days earlier, or maintaining them for 46 days longer were associated with 4%-6% higher post pandemic manufacturing employment

Look, I know you don’t want to think about this stuff, but we need to talk about: “What happens if you get really sick or, God forbid, die.”

Some things to think about:
📃A Will
📃Living Will
📃Medical POA
📃Statutory Durable POA
📃Declaration of Guardian for Children
Note: I'm not a probate attorney. But, most of this stuff is really basic.

Much of it is listed on the Texas Bar website and other associated state government websites.

Everyone's situation is different. When in doubt, call a lawyer. (Not me, I mean a good one.)
2nd Note: I'm cribbing a lot of this stuff from the Houston Volunteer Lawyers' notes. Follow: @HVLPtweets

They deserve the credit. makejusticehappen.org

They have an online consulting if you need to talk to a lawyer but can't afford it. I'll post at the end.

.@DrAmyActon: The numbers are a range. I know 8,000-10,000 sounds like a lot, but that really isn't a huge amount of Ohioans. We want it to spread slower, but it is spreading. When we stay home, the effectiveness will show up in our data a few weeks from now.
It's complicated, but you don't have to trust the modeling to see what's happening in other states. We are planning for worst-case scenarios with the hope that everything we do will take us away from that number.
We are lengthening the onset of the peak time and flattening the curve. The flattening is happening in #Ohio, but how much we flatten will depend on all of us. #InThisTogetherOhio

#SchoolClosure #RemoteLearning 🧵#ThreadOnZoom Several teachers have already initiated @zoom_us mtgs w/their students. 🎞 I recently learned how several districts are banning two way synchronous platforms w/students such as Zoom. After much reflection, I can understand why. 3/12

This morning, I had a call with the @ClevelandClinic and they gave us new information that they have in regard to their modeling and their projections. Throughout this crisis, we've said there are 2 variables that we're trying to impact:
1. #SocialDistancing helps #SlowtheSpread and helps us buy more time for our health infrastructure.

2. Building up our medical system to make sure we're ready when the surge comes.
.@ClevelandClinic told us that within about 2 weeks it will kick in much harder, according to their modeling. They project we may not hit the peak until mid-May.

Greetings Twitter Fam! Today's #housinglaw thread for #socialdistancing is about #foreclosures. We've covered rent strikes and evictions, and now it's time to talk about banks.

This one is going to be rough.

1/
Homeownership, like diamonds, is a marketing scheme. Homeownership has value because in the 1890s-1920s, the banks and federal government decided they wanted homeownership to have value. Before then, you see, most Americans rented. Banks came up with the idea

2/
of mortgaging a property in order to buy it.

And why did they do that? Well, for that, we have to go back farther. Much farther.

Mortgages and foreclosures are actually mentioned in the U.S. Constitution. For real. But not how you might think.

Since I have time to spare, I wanna share with you guys what is the difference between Fiscal Policy and Monetary Policy.

After so long, this will be another Economics 101 thread of mine!
To begin with, you must understand that a federal government is NOT equivalent to a central bank. In our case, the federal government is those in the executive seats like the prime ministers and his cabinet members. Whereas the central bank is our Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM).
The one that in-charge to lead the federal government is the prime minister. Whereas the one that in-charge to lead the central bank is the BNM governor. Both of this entity is very important for any country to remain stable economically speaking.

Thread: How #COVID2019 could change the world forever. It is amazing how we find ourselves in the midst of a habit changing evolutionary Black Swan event in the #Corona pandemic. Personal meetings, large scale employment, newspapers, data, delivery boy... Read 1/1
I stopped physical newspapers a few years ago. But notice how the #Lockdown21 is forcing almost all nps dependents to evolve into reading news on palm. A great percentage of them could permanently shift to digital. Beginning of the end of newspapers due to #COVID2019. 1/2
With the world clampdown on travel, see the increase in remote meetings via Video Conference. G20 and SAARC are the showcase of what future summits and meetings could be. Dovetails so well with climate change. A personal favorite positive #COVID fallout.

Today's #HousingLaw thread for #SocialDistancing: evictions!

Most of you think of evictions as what happens when you don't pay your rent, which has a bunch of moral implications in and of itself. But it's wayyyyy more than that.
Just about every eviction statute in the United States is a version of a "Forcible Entry and Detainer Act," a statute we brought over from England with the 13 colonies. In fact, in courtrooms across the country, eviction cases are still called "Forcibles."

2/
So what are forcible entry and detainer statutes? Are you sure you want to know?

They were enacted by the British crown to allow forcible entry upon lands of Indigenous people and detainer of those lands.

In other words, it's literally the law of colonization.

1.Expand, deploy and train competent workforce.
2. Make sure that every suspected case is diagnosed.
3. Ramp up production and availability of testing.
4. Identify, Adapt and equip treatment facilities for isolation of all the cases.
#wisdom Steps ahead for #covid19 @DrTedros
5. Develop a clear plan for ensuring the quarantine for contacts
6. Refocus the whole of the Government for #covid related work.

I am also happy that @drtedros used physical distancing as the preferred phrase over #socialdistancing. #Covid19India #covid19
Break the problem into regional and local problems, find the appropriate evidence-based solutions to local problems. @DrMikeRyan

Although this was mentioned wrt #coviditaly ; Something very important to for every country to do #covidindia

I'm a medical student in NJ leading the effort to obtain #PPE for our HCWs. I'm sharing a twitter-diary with my reflections as I learn about leadership, communication, efficiency, teamwork, legalities, tech, engineering, safety practices, & more. #MedStudentvsCovid #COVIDー19
Days 1-3: Three days ago, I was excited at the prospect of indefinite vacationing. I love to sew, so I thought I'd make a few masks. 72 hrs later, I've organized a community of sewers, 100+ 3d printer donors, and student volunteers who have acquired 10k+ masks. Here's how. 1/24
2/ The @njmscovidteam has been remarkable in connecting me w/ semi-public med-student platforms such as slack & group.me, where I looked to see what others were doing. "Shit." No one had mobilized yet in NJ, as we are one of the first states to get hit. What now?

The @g20org Virtual Summit on Thurs will be a defining moment for international cooperation.

We need a global response to this truly global crisis. No country can exit it alone.

Here are 4 things middle powers like @G20Australia should push:

1/10 #auspol #COVIDー19
*1 – A global response mechanism*

There’s a world shortage of key resources: time, medical equipment, hospital beds, pharma. Zero-sum competition for them increases risk for all.

A science-based coord'n mechanism gets them where they provide most protection for everyone.

2/10
*2 – A temporary regime for moving response-critical people + goods.*

Moving personnel to where they are most needed would be easier with ‘green lanes’ like those suggested by @vonderleyen

Hello All, I want to say that I am very concerned with where we are right now with #COVID19. Here in Jefferson County, our hospitals are beginning to see larger and larger numbers of patients each day, and I am worried. Now is not the time to waiver from our common cause. 1/11
For those in the world who are suggesting that we just "let this run its course," I want to engage in a thought experiment. Let's run the numbers, because at the end of the day, this is a numbers game. 2/11
Jefferson County has an estimated population of 659,197 people. Let's say that 2/5 (40%) of people get COVID, and we will assume equal distribution across ages ~263,678 people with 15% of that group requiring hospitalization ~40,000 people in the hospitals. 3/11
