#CoronavirusUpdate 2021/6/7🇯🇵Tokyo has done it again. Government of Japan has decided to change the calculation for hospital usage so as to manipulate the resulting risk level assessment. Accordingly, with new calculation # of Stage 4 prefectures are reduced from 20→11.
According to #報道1930, the new calculation would affect the overall assessment of risk levels by lowering the definition of hospital capacity from “all positive AND other patients” to “all whom are committed to COVID beds”, thereby understating the actual hospital capacity. Image
In actuality the “COVID beds” are often near-full and the beds are extended to other beds to accommodate severe patients. The original calculation reflected this. Now the ground reality would be understated to create a false pretense of “less risk”. This has serious repercussions Image

Just in: Federal/provincial/territorial information and privacy commissioners (including B.C.'s @McEvoy_Michael) call on governments to respect Canadians' quasi-constitutional rights to privacy and access to information. #bcpoli #cdnfoi #coronavirus #stateofemergency #righttoknow ImageImage
Here is the full resolution. But is it too little, too late? @BCInfoPrivacy has given @jjhorgan @bcndp too much freedom to trample on citizens' #FOIA rights, starting with the temporary March 18, 2020 disclosure holiday. #bcpoli #cdnfoi #coronavirus #stateofemergency ImageImage
Today's statement from information and privacy commissioners comes MORE THAN A YEAR after Canadian COVID-19 Accountability group, including @seanmholman, sounded the alarm.
The statutory watchdogs waited more than a year to speak as one. #bcpoli #cdnfoi…

Before COVID, the #Aichi @irouren nurses were able to express their frustrations like any other worker. Now under the #StateofEmergency, they will not walk but just hold a presser and engage the social media. #看護の日
Leading up to the presser, @irouren & labor unions nationwide unleashed a fierce SNS campaign expressing the anger & frustration of the nurses on the field, gathering almost 0.5M tweets to date. This nurse exclaimed, “WE ARE NOT DISPOSABLE PAWNS!” #看護は自己犠牲じゃない
But despite the fierce protest, the Japan Nursing Association reportedly succumbed to the demands of the #Tokyo2020 organizers to ‘secure’ 500 nurses for the Games. #Aichi @irouren have rejected saying, “It is unimaginable: one sick-leave is rendering our operation useless!”

#CoronavirusUpdate 1/2🇯🇵Japan's four major governors met for 3 hours with economic minister to request the state to invoke the #StateofEmergency declaration amid massive surge of COVID19 cases in 18 prefectures. State responded it will 'consider'.…
Meanwhile, the state asked the governors to 'act on immediately' to (1) limit the restaurant hours to until 20:00 and restrict outing after that hour, (2) enforce teleworking in workplaces, (3) enact countermeasures in schools/workplaces, (4) restrict further on events.
While making these requests to the prefectures, the GoJ focuses on amending the current special law on COVID19 to strengthen enforcement powers of the state and prefectures to allow penalizing people for disobedience. The National Diet will be meeting on January 18.

Due to the increasing number of infections with the corona virus, Hungary is imposing a dangerous emergency situaion and a night curfew. Restaurants and clubs have to close, theaters,
cinemas and other event organizers are only allowed to allocate a third of the available seats, Prime Minister Viktor Orban announced in a video that appeared on his Facebook page. "The spread of the pandemic has accelerated," Orban said.
"It is time we took new steps to protect the functioning of hospitals and the lives of older people." The curfew applies from midnight to 5 a.m. The emergency situation allows the government to adopt extraordinary measures by ordinance.

1 new case is an asymptomatic Thai citizen from #Singapore already in #quarantine. Thailand also extending #StateofEmergency till end Sept, the 5th time ImageImageImage
#Thailand @NatapanuN at #COVID19 briefing in English explains why nation is extending #StateofEmergency #พรกฉุกเฉิน for the 5th time despite not having any local community infection for almost 3 months. Says key reason for decree is to continue to ensure there'll be no 2nd wave
#Thailand @NatapanuN also gave updates on how 71 testing labs are situated in 77 provinces & nation has conducted combined testing of more than 800,000 to date. More than 73,000 #Thai citizens have been repatriated from abroad while more than 7,200 foreigners allowed to come in ImageImageImage

All new cases are that of Thais returning from #Egypt, #Germany & #US. All already in #quarantine. No local community infection for almost 2 months now. ImageImageImageImage
This as Thailand plans to further extend its #StateofEmergency. Country had introduced the decree since late March due to #COVID19. But it has been extending it on a monthly basis. Had already done so 3 times. Latest decree will expire July 31. Will be 4th time if extended again
Some #Thai citizens have staged protests against the extension of the #StateofEmergency, saying the law is unnecessary & accusing the government of using the decree to suppress & intimidate the people. But authorities have consistently insisted decree is needed to manage #COVID19

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Both Thais who returned from #Qatar in #quarantine. 36th day that Thailand has not seen a local transmission. Today is also day #StateofEmergency expires ImageImageImageImage
But #Thailand likely to further extend period of #StateofEmergency as #PM #Prayut had repeatedly said before that the decree was necessary and had helped to manage/control the #Covid19 situation in country. Some citizens refute that arguing the government is trying to extend grip
@ASEANMP statement on likely extension of #StateofEmergency in #Thailand calling it "an excuse to prevent protests from starting and the student movement from resuming". Says "no reason anymore for government to justify emergency powers" as nation has #Covid19 under control Image

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites" Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)… Image
People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.
(for one week, as of now)

#Thailand #PM #Prayut insisted internal changes/shake-up within ruling #PalangPracharat party will have no impact on a cabinet reshuffle.

#Thailand #PM spokeswoman @DrNarumonP says Mr #Prayut is busy with other matters, hence unable to hold his regular presser today. Speaking on behalf of the #PM, insists extending the #StateofEmergency till end June is for the sole purpose of curbing #Covid19 & to not see 2nd wave ImageImage

1/30 In two forthcoming pieces, I examine #Japan's response to the #COVID19 #coronavirus #pandemic. I'll summarize the main non-theoretical points here (long thread alert!).
2/30 #Japan’s figures have always looked good compared to many other countries, which initially led to suspicion that the ‘real’ numbers of #COVID19 #coronavirus infections & death were being played down.
3/30 #Tokyo Metropolitan Government at least has now released full #COVID19 figures, including general death rates, seeming to put this argument to rest (but these figures are also now being challenged).…

#Thailand #PM @prayutofficial says the government will decide next Tues, April 28 on whether to extend #StateOfEmergency imposed for #coronavirus #COVID19 #โควิค19 because it's suppose to end April 30. Decision will also depend on how cooperative businesses/operators/people are ImageImageImageImage

That turned quickly from 🔥 to ❄️! #COVID19 effect now fully evident with #Toronto #realestate Sales volumes.
First 3 weeks of March, 416 freeholds were surging vs. 2019, ⬆️49%. Totally reversed with last week ⬇️42%.
416 condos were ⬆️31% in first 3 weeks, last week ⬇️42%. /1 Image
Here are absolute numbers for 416 freeholds. Ontario declared #StateOfEmergency on March 17, so two days into week ended March 22 (Sunday). Week just ended was first full week under SOE. /2 Image
Here are absolute numbers for 416 condo sales by week (Monday to Sunday). Same pattern.
First 3 weeks condos had 34% more volume than freeholds, last 2 weeks it 57% more, so in that respect condo trading hasn't dropped as much. /3 Image

Hi everyone. Trying to stay quiet and mindful during these times - so not posting here often. But here's a quick thread for my #academictwitter colleagues and those working in #postsecondary #university #college settings now. /1
Some of us in teaching positions are in the position of deciding whether to "stay the course", provide a sense of "normalcy", etc. when it comes to our coursework and obligations to students.

So a few words for those not sure what business as usual might entail. /2
I'll preface this with an acknowledgement that I'm 1) a tenure-track prof w/ 2) considerable autonomy in an academic program 3) w/leadership that respects the work I do in the classroom. I realize this isn't typical, so what I'm sharing might not reflect your situation. FWIW: /3

HU opposition temporarily blocks Orban’s attempt to seize unchecked power using #COVIDー19 epidemics as an excuse. While we all agree that triggering a #StateOfEmergency in such a crisis makes sense, there's no need to give unchecked power to the gvt for an unlimited period! 1/6 Image
While the gvt asks everyone's cooperation in this time of crisis, it attempts to have the opposition approve a bill that would lock out not only opposition MPs but the entire Parliament from decision-making, depriving the country of any kind of parliamentary oversight. 2/6 Image
Such a move not only gravely threatens the very essence of the #RuleOfLaw, it is also ineffective, as threatening journalists with jail sentences, creating an unprecedented level of self-censorship, undermining the free flow of information hardly helps fighting #COVIDー19. 3/6

The #FakeNewsMedia is reporting that @realDonaldTrump doj
is trying to pass law for indefinite detention.

The facts are much different.
@BarackObama already passed the NDAA Bill that can arrested American citizens indefinitely for crimes yet to be committed.
Indefinite Detention was first passed in George Bush's
#Patriot #ACT for those who support Al-Qaeda etc.

@BarackObama then passed the NDAA which expanded it to indefinite detention for American Citizens for "future crimes"

Obama NDAA
During a declared #StateOfEmergency like now with #coronavirus
The bill is asking that local courts be able to temporarily suspend operations.
B) During a state of emergency the statue of limitations for crimes be suspended
C) It gives the Courts the authority not @POTUS

Tonight (of all nights), after a year of preparation, @playhousesquare @TheCityClub @CuyahogaLib & other partners are hosting me to discuss *Palaces* and our need for #SocialInfrastructure, for the #OneCommunityReads program. The timing is either disastrous or perfect. (Thread)
Palaces is about the vital role of public, accessible, well-designed gathering places in democratic societies. #Libraries #Parks #Schools #Playgrounds It argues that we have failed to build & maintain them, that we exacerbate problems, like distrust & division, as a result (2/6)
At first, the call for better #SocialInfrastructure seems at odds with our current emergency, #COVID19 Mitigating it requires #SocialDistancing. Quarantines. Maybe more. But getting through the #CoronavirusOutbreak demands we do more than hunker down at home. (3/6)
