As stories of the Covid-19 pandemic spread around the world, I’ve personally been touched by how the inner beauty of people shines so brightly in this seeming darkness. You see it their actions — actions that convey compassion, actions that tell us we’re not alone. 1/4
This is so true of the incredible medical professionals who are facing this crisis with a spirit that inspires us all. Many of them say they are finding a source of strength within themselves now that they hadn’t known existed. The care, the loving kindness, 2/4
the empathy they show nourishes hearts as well as bodies. It can motivate us to act with awareness that what we do and what we say affects others, 3/4

A day in the life of a #COVID-19 #healthworker in India. A #Thread.

#indiafightscorona #healthwarriors
What does it mean to be a frontline warrior amid the #Coronavirus ( #COVID-19 ) pandemic? It means being away from home for weeks, staying awake for days and nights,
dealing with emotionally vulnerable patients and a sense of timelessness – when the clock ceases to exist and the patients’ recovery is all that matters.

Countries are asking ppl to #stayhome & shutting down population movement to limit #COVID19 transmission. These steps can have unintended consequences for the poorest & most vulnerable. I call on countries to ensure these populations have food & life essentials during the crisis.
My appreciation to Prime Minister @narendramodi for announcing a $24 billion package to support 🇮🇳's vulnerable populations during #COVID19 crisis, including:
-free food rations for 800M disadvantaged people
-cash transfers to 204M poor women
-free cooking gas for 80M households.
However, many developing countries will struggle to implement social welfare programs of this nature. Broad and expedited agreement on debt relief is essential to enable them to care for their people and avoid economic collapse. #Solidarity

While we all work together to stop #COVID19 pandemic, countries must not forget to minimise potential impacts on food supply & international trades. More in a joint statement by WHO, @FAO & @WTO 👉

During #COVID19 pandemic, all countries 🌍🌎🌏 must ensure continuity of the food supply chain in every way possible to protect the health & well-being of their citizens, especially the most vulnerable. Full statement with @FAO & @WTO 👉

1⃣Export restrictions, 2⃣ food shortage and 3⃣ price spikes will harm low-income countries that face food shortages. The world must show solidarity amidst the #COVID19.  👉

#Thread What type of bottom feeding media attacks educators during a pandemic? The same one that wished a #HurricaneKatrina on #CPS. I’m guessing their goal is to remain on brand? #Trash #Covid19…
#NewFlash : Educators are real ppl. We’re experiencing #Covid19 like the rest of the world. Some of our immune systems are compromised. Some hv contracted it. Some are awaiting results. Many are taking care of family who’ve contracted it. Some have died. #InRealLife #Covid_19
3/ We are watching the body count increase daily. Some of us are making masks for 1st responders. Others hv cleared out their teacher cabinets & given sanitizer & soap to 1st responders. #Service #Covid_19 #InRealLife

Thread on government’s measures for the self-employed: i want to say some things about the delivery, rather than the policy here. This million £ policy will be administered by HMRC. Since 2010, HMRC resources have been eroded; 90% of tax office are closed or are in process of
being closed. The people who work there are civil servants, but not the high level senior civil servants you’re thinking of. They are the unseen civil service who have been most victimised and vilified by Tory attacks on the public sector.
Google “HMRC staffing cuts” and you’ll find a wealth (pardon the pun) of information. HMRC reduced its workforce by 20% since 2010 and because of chronic low pay struggles to recruit people who are often better off in local private sector employment.

@ChrisCEOHopson @WHO @DrTedros @didoharding @FIFAcom @CNOEngland 3) The @WHO approach is an evidence based approach & as a global family, we must all learn & share as countries together, not alone.

Testing needs to happen everywhere. Not just for #NHS staff.

Isolation should follow @DrTedros guidance.

A number of media reports this week on potential treatments for #COVIDー19. @WHO is tracking these developments and will update our treatment guidelines if any evidence emerges. Right now, what is needed are high quality #RCTs@JeremyFarrar @ICMRDELHI @Chikwe_I @jarottingen @MRCza
The @WHO #Solidarity trial will test chloroquine or HCQ, lopinavir/ritonavir with and without interferon beta, remdesivir versus Standard of care in many countries round the world, in order to generate robust evidence on mortality and hospitalization of #COVIDー19 patients
The #Solidarity protocol is an adaptive clinical trial - so more arms can be added later, arms can be dropped for futility. A global data safety monitoring committee and steering committee (of international experts) will oversee the trial @WHO.

Social media is the best and the worst of us. It connects us when we might otherwise be isolated, and it magnifies the ugliest parts of our nature. It offers hope and comfort, and makes attack so easy it happens before we think.

Right is for many of us, a lifeline.
I am grateful for all of you. Even when we — even when I bite and scratch and shout. Even when we're at each other's figurative throats, standing on the precipice of a new nation or the edge of absolute ruin.
While we're in this strange, grey limbo between the past not yet dead and the future not yet born, I am grateful to have this platform to reach you and to be reached. To hear you. Even when what I hear hurts or makes me angry.

It's humanity. And it's solidarity.

The probable scenario is that the majority of the population will
contract SARS CoV 2/Corona

It is very important to slow down the virus through isolation to have enough time to find a treatment or vaccination.
There is a likely scenario in which we will contract the virus...
... once like chickenpox and then be immune. This means we would at some point reach a
state of herd immunity and only a few people ever contract the virus in future generations, therefore they are easier to treat. The other possible scenario is that the virus mutates....
...and it becomes seasonal like the flu.
Both require the same precautions: Isolation to slow down the virus.

However, it is very crucial to understand that the virus is less harmful to young and healthy people. Some are even asymptomatic (presenting no

Devastating #COVID19 situation in Italy,
8342 infections, 357 deaths as of today

45% have either no/minimal symptoms
22% of infections detected in age 19-50y
583 HCWs infected
In-hospital mortality figures are similar to early Wuhan data
This is a reminder that #COVID19 is not a disease of the elderly. All age groups contribute. Especially those who feel well with minimal symptoms are more likely to contribute to the spread infection, and sadly, worst outcomes are observed in the elderly population. #Solidarity
*This analysis is based on data as of March 9th.

These are the HUMAN BEINGS who have perished in Mississippi prisons over the last two months

PSA: Abusive people are not welcome in our organizing space.

Trauma does real harm & as leftists our community has been traumatized repeatedly by those who oppose progress.

Trauma is a favored weapon of opposition & its a known subversion tactic to destabilize our communities.
Everyone involved in @RoseCaucus, from slate members to volunteers are asked to review and agree to SHARP, which is our policy against abuse & harassment.

We take abuse seriously, because we are a trauma-informed community.

You can read SHARP here:…
We will never apologize for removing individuals from our organizing spaces who are willfully inflicting trauma, even after repeated attempts to de-escalate.

We understand not everyone who inflicts trauma does so intentionally, but will take action if it persists beyond reason.

In her Hogmanay speech @NicolaSturgeon stated: "We will provide support and reassurance for the #EUcitizens who have done us the honour of choosing to make #Scotland their home."

Here is how we can begin to constructively fulfill that promise:…
1. EU citizens will face discrimination by Brexit/HostileEnv design. Those who have Settled Status need a physical token not offered by the Home Office but any individuals status can be checked online - including by @scotgov who should issue a #ScottishResidencyCard open to all.
2. All residents of #Scotland are equally affected by Scots Law, yet not all are protected by it. For 2020 I hope to see an all-party, multi-disciplinary Equality workgroup at the Scottish parliament finding & using Scots law & powers to enhance equality and protect all Scots.

THREAD: "Corbynista" - Why Labours loss is Corbyn's fault

The big takeaway from Labour's loss in the 2019 General Election is that Corbyn was deeply unpopular outside of the movement and on a basic messaging level why in hindsight he was doomed to fail.
It's the issue that can't be named is simple: Corbyn advocates treating all people equally, regardless of gender, race, background etc. This is deemed as traitorous because Brits should come first.
His very appeal to those who left Labour due to the Iraq war is the biggest reason why he wasn't trusted on the doorstep.

Disheartening to see Sanders campaign condemn the actions of Black Lives Matter South Bend, which interrupted a recent Pete Buttigieg event. The group called attention to what they felt was the mayor’s failure to address and disregard for the issues affecting them. #Solidarity
As the candidate most invested in movement politics, it seems off brand for the campaign to issue a statement condemning disruptions of campaign events.

Pete Buttigieg has a long, problematic record on racial issues. It’s bound to get called out. Power to the protesters.
In its statement on the disruption (from @jtlarsen), BLM South Bend not only justifies its actions, but castigates the Buttigieg campaign for trying to spin a “false narrative” that the protesters were just white Bernie Sanders supporters. Still, Sanders’ campaign took the bait..

My twitter presence is much bigger than it was a year ago (thank you everyone) and inevitable this means I face more online 'critique' than previously.

Today the focus has been my 'politicising' of #RemembranceSunday

I have just a few things to say: 1/7
As the granddaughter and daughter of army and navy veterans I know personally about the costs of war & would suggest that my views are as valid as anyone's.

As a sociologist, and a critical thinker, I argue that ALL life is political and what more than war & peace, war ... 2/7
