@IHME_UW (Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation) and @UWMedicine (University of Washington’s School of Medicine), no lightweights, have come out with
global projections of #COVID19 by nation.
Short summary 👇

healthdata.org/news-release/f…
They modelled 3 scenarios:
1. Worse case:
- mask usage stays at current rates, and,
- governments continue relaxing social distancing requirements.
This leads to 4.0 million total deaths by the end of the year.
Best case:
- mask usage is near-universal, and,
- governments impose social distancing requirements when their daily death rate exceeds 8 per million.
This leads to 2.0 million total deaths if by the end of the year.

According to the NYT, some European-Americans are non-White. In their analysis of the most powerful people in the U.S. today, the paper classifies Europeans from the Iberian Peninsula like Spaniards and Portuguese as non-White. @nytimes nytimes.com/interactive/20…
For example, it classifies both John Garamendi, whose last name is Basque (from Northern Spain), and Devin Nunes, a 3rd generation Portuguese American as “non-White.” @JohnGaramendi
The rule they seem to be following is to classify anyone whose last name sounds “Hispanic” as non-White regardless of this person’s actual ancestry. This would explain why Pablo Islas, the Madrid-born CEO of Indetex, was classified as non-White.

Francisco Jiménez de Cisneros, a Catholic archbishop, was appointed in 1499 to speed up the conversation process by harrassme of Spain's Muslim's, persecution and arbitrary imprisonment of those who choose not to convert. 1/n

In his own words, he declared, " if the infidels couldn't be attracted to the road to salvation, they had to be dragged to it. "

The result was an expected rebellion by Spain's Muslims against the oppression. The Muslims of Granada, who had endured eight years of Christian rule but would not endure oppression by the new archbishop, barricaded the narrow streets of Granada and declared their 3/n

1/ Unsurprisingly, there has been some debate over the findings of the only published randomised controlled clinical trial of cloth masks, to which I referred in my tweet on #facemasks:

2/ Sweden's chief epidemiologist, Anders Tegnell, has also claimed that "Countries such as Spain and Belgium have made their populations wear masks but their infection numbers have still risen."

3/ Yet, a study in June claimed, "In countries with cultural norms or government policies supporting public mask-wearing, per-capita coronavirus mortality increased on average by just 8.0% each week, as compared with 54% each week in remaining countries."

#JustIn: #HKU's microbiology team issued a press release suggesting the 33-year-old IT patient, who came back from #Spain, is the world’s first #Covid19 reinfected patient.

#Covid19
#coronavirus
From the #HKU report: Reinfection can occur just after a few months of recovery from the first infection. #SARS_CoV_2 may persist in the global population as is the case for other common-cold associated human coronaviruses, even if patients have acquired immunity.
Since the immunity can be short lasting after natural infection, vaccination should also be considered for those once infected person. Patients with previous #Covid19 infection should also comply with control measures such as masking and #socialdistancing.

It was lunch time in #Brazil on a Saturday in 1990 when I decided it was time to be born! I grew up in a large city in #SãoPaulo called #Guarulhos, which in Tupi (native language) means “eaters” or “big-bellied people”. Here’s the proof I am “Guarulhense”:

Our #family was not wealthy, but my parents made sure I had good #education, even if that meant sacrificing part of their own life. For that I will be forever #grateful. They made sure I learned how to #appreciate everything I had that money could not buy.

1/12 As you may have read, Podemos is being formally accused of illegal funding and investigated by a judge in Spain. What is going on in Spain? ⬇️
elmundo.es/espana/2020/08…
2/12 Also, many leaders of Podemos are publicly complaining about a campaign against them. Right-wing judges coordinated with a set of right-wing media to falsely accuse Podemos of corruption
3/12 First, there is a problem of partisanims in the Spanish judiciary system. For many years, Spanish press and even judges have been investigating Catalan and Basque politicians and activists without enough evidence. This is called 'investigación prospectiva'.

#SaudiArabia FM Prince Faisal bin Farhan has been quite busy these days! Today in #Italy, right after #Cyprus and, before, a North Africa tour. On geopolitics, Riyadh and Rome have two major things to talk about: #Libya and #EastMed. Both have to do with #Turkey.
#Italy and #SaudiArabia do not traditionally have an in-depth, serious geopolitical engagement. This is for many reasons, many of which are common to other continental #Europe-an countries, excluding #France. I have analysed those in my @ECFRMena paper: ecfr.eu/publications/s…
This same paper is part of a wider effort, done within @ECFRMena, to provide ideas to the #EU and #Europe-an countries on how to engage geopolitically w/#GCC monarchies, who are now impactful players in the entire #MENA, including the #Mediterranean. ecfr.eu/publications/s…

+193 cases of #Covid_19 today in #Switzerland, at a high test positivity rate. This is terrible.

#Finland has rightfully closed their borders to us, more will follow if this continues.

Solutions to lower the case number, avoid a second wave and at some point reach #CoronaZero:
2/20
1) Generally, we need to be #proactive and #creative in our thinking and use our massive scientific and financial resources fully in a targeted and smart manner.
3/20
There is no typical Swiss compromise with this virus, this is a fight for our health and economic prosperity like we have not seen since World War II. We need to be humble and learn from the countries that are doing better than us.

Mexico's leftist leader is slashing spending to free up more money for 2 projects: @TrenMayaMX and Aeropuerto Internacional Felipe Ángeles.

Why the urge on both projects? Stubborn as he is, and a man of no moral compass; Obrador certainly is helping his allies and friends.
The Maya Train project, was envisioned a decade ago by a group of politicians close to Ernesto Zedillo, and during the term of the innefective Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (#SCT), Dionisio Pérez-Jácome's, the project was held. Nothing happened.
Zedillo and his flock —the few, close to Elba Esther Gordillo— were benefited by the assassination of #Colosio. And, now those former Zedillista officials, swarm in MORENA. Thus, this was an agreed transition between the group of Atlacomulco and Zedillistas with #AMLO.
