1/5 Here is a short check list of the top things we all need to be doing to improve our position on the #COVID19 defence and to get #Canada back on the safer #SlowBurn:
2/5 #StayHome and away from others if you develop any symptoms of #COVID19, even if mild. Consult your local #publichealth authority for information on testing in your area. Find out more about symptoms here:…
3/5 Rethink your bubble. Limit your #ContactBubble to just the people who are in your existing household and/or your small, consistent and trusted in-person contacts. Smaller is safer. Quality over quantity. #COVID19

My 93 yr old father got his usual yearly cough and apparent pneumonia.
His 91 yr old wife had a cold.
My father was fit and strong.
They tested positive for #COVID19 and went into hospital.
She died 12 hours later.
He died fighting to live but hospice ended him.
What’s happening in hospitals?
Why are people dying so fast?
Are there Do Not Resuscitate orders for #COVID19 patients?
What’s happening in nursing homes?
Are BLM riots & #StayHome orders keeping us from demanding end to this?
Remember: they want to keep the mask on.
No no, don’t mistake my message. I appreciate your sympathy but this is an OUTRAGE. Are elderly being MURDERED?

🧵1918 letter describing Influenza
I've treated countless patients with #COVID in NYC and Arizona and I have NEVER seen anything like this deadly virus. 100 years ago during the 1918 pandemic, Dr. Norman Roy Grist describes the SAME hypoxia & respiratory distress in influenza!
In September of 1918, soldiers at an army base near Boston suddenly began to die from influenza. As the virus spread across the country, hospitals became quickly overfilled, and city officials dug mass graves.…
This is a letter written by doctor, Norman Roy Grist, stationed at Camp Devens, a military base just west of Boston, to a friend, and fellow physician in 1918. He describes the conditions of the camp as influenza was spreading.

But I need to do something first. I’m reminded many people follow me for COVID info so I want to call out & atone for my mistakes. 1/

If you are age 20-40 and are trying to decide if you should go to that party or hang out with your friends.... Imagine a bowl of 1000 M&Ms which will all give you COVID19. You reach in to grab a few.... what can you expect? 1/8

1/7 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: Today, in lieu of a daily in-person update to the media, a Monday statement has been issued. You can read in full here:…
2/7 “Layer up” this summer to reduce your risk of exposure to #COVID19. #PublicHealth practices are “layers of protection”. Just like hats, gloves, mitts, and a winter jacket, one item alone is not enough to protect you from the elements.
3/7 #PublicHealth practices are most effective when they’re combined. Build a base layer by sticking to the basics:
✔️ #PhysicalDistancing
✔️ #Handwashing often
✔️ #StayHome if even mildly ill
✔️ #CoughEtiquette
✔️ Stick to a small, consistent social circle

1/ Can confirm that in areas served by Mayo #COVID__19 testing MN/WI/IA,

there is growing spread among children.

Anecdotally, demographics are changing slightly.

Now seeing exposure from:
-family visits
-July 4 group activities
-hanging out
-summer sports
2/ Also hearing more of our #COVID__19 positive families volunteering info about taking vacations to busy or crowded areas including nationally popular theme parks,

plus much more flying in & out of states bc “We thought it was safe”

No. No it is not.
#StayHome #WearAMask
3/ Early on in the pandemic (again anecdotally, but has been confirmed by state & natl data),

my colleagues from our COVID Control Team were using interpreters for ~2/3 of kids who were testing positive,
suggesting more immigrant/POC/essential workers.

The stupidity of #Stayhome, #WearADamnMask and lockdowns.
Most of the idiots promoting this don’t know the 1st thing about Immunology.
Well I do, and you can’t fight a virus by hiding from it.
No I’m not saying get infected, but you need to a little bit.
#PharaohRant #Covid_19
The human body is almost like “AI”, the immune system only works by “response”, and in order for it to respond it must get infected so it can build antibodies. It learns and adapts.
Actually it’s quite amazing.. my fav is killer T-cells 👊🏻
If you #StayHome, you can’t get exposed
If you aren’t exposed to the first gen of the virus, then guess what?
That bug has mutated and you’re body can’t fight what’s about to hit you.
Why do you think the new cases are getting younger?
They did the #StayHome and #WearADamnMas, crap and got the worst #Covid_19 🤬

Lots of articles about ICUs reaching capacity, but what does this actually mean?

Buckle up for a #tweetorial about ICU capacity and what it means in the context of #COVID19.
First, statewide measures of ICU capacity can be misleading. Critically ill patients generally go to the nearest hospital. Having "10% of ICU beds free statewide" isn’t reassuring if most ICUs are completely full and a few ICUs hundreds of miles away are mostly empty.
Instead of statewide numbers, let's focus on ICU capacity within individual hospitals. Unlike airlines that want to fly full, ICUs are not intended to be full, particularly for prolonged periods.

There is evidence that higher ICU census is associated with worse outcomes:

#Covid19 update July 7, 2020. We remain in Stage 4, though we’re very close to stage 5. The latest 7-day average of new hospitalizations is about 75. Review the risk-based guidelines here: 1/6
Right now, we need everyone to continue to #StayHome when you can, #MaskUp & social distance when outside of your home, get tested if you think you may have COVID-19, & isolate for at least 10 days after the onset of symptoms, practice excellent hygiene, & otherwise be safe. 2/6
Tonight there are 12, 408 people that have tested positive – up 482 from yesterday. Unfortunately, 7 additional Austinites have been lost to this virus since yesterday—total deaths 151. Approximately 9,348 have recovered. 3/6

This is what the Growth Rate of the Total Count for #Covid19India looks like when plotted against the Log Total Count.

The LOESS line (Red, dashed) declined below the linear fit (Blue, dotted) at 8.2 (~3.5K Cases) and rose back up strongly at 12 (~160K Cases).
Set up a GAM model (in Red) to forecast when the ZERO crossing might be expected, alongside an extension of the LOESS fit (in Blue).

Expects a zero crossing slightly ahead of 15 (~ 3.25-3.5M Cases). That's when the model suggests Total Count would stop growing further.
PS: The LOESS fit, however, suggests that this could rise back up around 14 in LogN terms (which is where the two "forecasts" diverge). 14 in LogN terms is around 1.2M cases. Which we expect to hit in around two weeks time.

NOW: We are back to where we were in March when we didn’t have enough tests.

Then we hadn’t prepared.
Now we have too many cases and no national approach.

What this means.
In many parts of the country, with 5 day backlogs to get results, the tests have little to no value in the 2 things we need tests most for. And the third is increasingly out of the question.
The first use helping us diagnose when we are sick means that at the first sign of a symptom, we must assume we have the virus. Stay home, isolate. Call or telemedicine with your doctor if you’re worried. Go the hospital if you’re having serious symptoms.
