2) When thinking how to start this topic, I remembered the words of Austrian cancellor Sebastian Kurz addressed to #Serbs.

During one of his interviews, he said that we should "give up the past (thinking of giving up #Kosovo) and look to the future"... ⬇️
3) He represents so-called modern European civilization that is forcing this nomadic approach to life - when you don't like it, you pack your stuff & leave. e.g. Pakistani or Algerians don't like where they have lived for centuries, so they leave and wish to settle in #Europe. ⬇️

All 45 participants - 15 from regime, 15 independents, 15 opposition - were tested before flying to #Geneva.

Quite how 3/45 slipped through the cracks is extraordinary.

If they [presumably] came from #Damascus, it speaks volumes about the crisis there.
Two sources confirm to me all 3 positive cases came from #Damascus.

What's troubling is that all 45 participants had been tested for #COVID *before* traveling to #Geneva & tested again on arrival in #Switzerland.

Somehow 3 positive cases slipped through that @UN-run process.
@UN NEW - Official statement from UN S/E Pedersen's office confirms #Syria's Constitutional Committee sessions in #Geneva are "on hold" after 3/45 participants tested positive for #COVID19. Image

[Secret deal: China's security cops can investigate in #Switzerland]

1. @NZZaS: #China & #Swiss signed a secret deal in 2015 allowing #Beijing's security officers to investigate Chinese nationals WITHIN #Switzerland for 2 weeks, even w/o official status.
nzzas.nzz.ch/schweiz/geheim…
2. Five years after the secret deal was signed, no Swiss MP had ever heard of the deal. In contrast to similar agreements between #Switzerland and other countries, the one with #China is harsher as #Chinese cops can come and investigate without prior discussion with Swiss govt.
3. Even though the treaty claims only covering smugglers and illegal immigrants, it is doubtful whether this extraterritorial enforcement power can be abused under the newly enacted #nationalsecuritylaw that covers foreigners.

Thank you Thomas! 1) children are underrepresented in current studies due to asymptomatic/mild disease that`s missed in symptomatic screening - true extend of susceptibility & transmission compared to adults not clear yet - but they can get #COVID19 & can transmit #SARSCoV2 1/6
Even thought they might not be driving the pandemic based on what we know right now, they are part of community transmission & thus their role needs further investigation - by scientific studies & by including children of all ages in national testing algorithms 2/6
We have recently released a statement from the Society of Virology (German-speaking virologists) on this g-f-v.org/node/1326 Here we warn of the assumption that children do not play a role, & promote more proactive measures regarding schools & educational institutions 3/6

1/ #Switzerland data on where #SARSCoV2 #COVID19 infections took place in last 2 weeks. <50% have known location, but of these:
- Club/disco 42%
- Bar/restaurant 27%
- Family member 12%

No entries for shopping/public transport, & schools closed at moment

srf.ch/news/schweiz/e…
2/ None of this is surprising, but it backs up what we believe about #SARSCoV2 - closed, crowded, close-contact settings #ThreeCs are high-risk. For places like Geneva with worrying case-counts, reasonable to consider closing & reducing density in these places
3/ However, with that plan we must acknowledge that it is not these business-owners fault that their venues are inherently high-risk. We must decide how we are going to support these businesses during times when it is not safe to have them open or operating at full capacity.

**BREAKING**

Join me tomorrow with @SeanSaifaWall @Pidgejen @interACT_adv @IndyaMoore + others to discuss the first US hospital to apologize for medically unnecessary surgeries on #intersex children and pledge to stop them.

Register for the Zoom event: hrworg.zoom.us/webinar/regist…
3 years ago @HRW published our first ever report investigating and exposing the human rights violations against children born with #intersex traits -- we spoke with intersex kids and adults, their parents, and doctors in charge of their care: hrw.org/report/2017/07…
A few months later we published a second report, this time foregrounding physician voices -- doctors who were terrified by the lack of regulation around these operations, despite the intersex community engaging an asking for it for decades: hrw.org/report/2017/10…

+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.

THREAD: #ndrangheta #mobility this week has been all around the news. Before getting caught up by hysteria over this #mafia being everywhere, let's look at the analysis of the facts. First, the 'ndrangheta is NOT one, it can ACT LIKE ONE in Calabria and only when needed.
2/ Unity is in 1) mafia behaviours, 2) family unity, 3) horizontal coordination in "dense" mafia territories. The peculiarity of the 'ndrangheta is that #ethnicity - Calabrianness - matters eormously for the resilience of the organisation, but NOT for criminal activities.
3/ in #Argentina arrests for drug trafficking involved an Italian in Buenos Aires, not Calabrian, an Argentinian of Italian descent, a man from Rosarno linked to the #Bellocco clan - this is business, not ethnicity. clarin.com/policiales/mod…

#Sweden - #Mortality deaths per months 1980-2020

"I think it's like a severe flu season"
Professor Johan Giesecke

(update, putting all charts into one single pinned thread )
#France - deaths per months 1980-2020

In January 2017 more people died than in April 2020. But we saw no TGVs with ICU patients, and had no #crisesainitaire.
#Germany - deaths per months 1990-2020

In 2017/18, Germany was faced with the deadliest flu season of the last 30 years. Nobody took notice. We missed it. @Markus_Soeder did not protect us. And we had plenty of toilet paper.

The #Crop #Diversity #Experiment funded by @snf_ch can show first results available on @biorxivpreprint. First year results from #Switzerland show 21% and 44% increases in yield in 2- and 4-species #mixtures, respectively. Yield benefits in Spain were 3% and 13%. (1/5)
In a first study we can show that these yield benefits of #intercropping are not due to reduced #weed pressure. Weed abundance was related to crop yield, but not affected by crop #richness, but rather by the presence of #cereals (2/)
biorxiv.org/content/10.110… @LStefan_AgroEco (2/5)
A second study shows that increased crop yield in mixtures is both related to positive #sampling effects of tall species and positive #complementarity effects through more efficient #nitrogen use

Thread: Wearing masks is our best defense against the #coronavirus.

@WhiteHouse press secretary said today that masks are no longer required in West Wing. Many tweets also advise against masks.

Result: Colossal failure of the US #COVID response.

An example of anti-mask rhetoric can be seen in the video below by a Mr. Huff. I will explain why everything that he says here is scientifically incorrect and a danger to public health. (I do not know Mr. Huff or his motivations.)

I am not comparing the US to the several dozen countries that have mostly controlled this epidemic, e.g., #Taiwan, #Iceland, #SouthKorea, #Japan, #Thailand, #NewZealand, #Australia, #Austria, #Switzerland, #Greece, #Norway, etc. Some of them never even had to lock down.

This is the subject of my recent arguments against a certain retired judge, who said that the death penalty would scare off would-be criminals. I retorted that it was a lazy way of thinking about & looking into criminality. I will try to recall those arguments here.
2/10
Capital punishment has not been a deterrent to crime, whose root causes are in poverty, economic inequities, poor health care, inadequate public services, corrupt govt & justice system, bad educational system, poor human-rights record, & other unfreedoms as as understood
3/10
in political philosophy. Rich countries with excellent health care, high employment rate, topnotch educational system, least red tape, competent & honest govt officials, efficient public services & transport system, & good records of human-rights and press-freedom

Thread: Predicting #COVID deaths in the US from 8k to 100k.

I started predicting the US COVID death toll ~2 months ago. All of my predictions to date have proven accurate. The most painful predictions I have ever made.

Why have we failed to stop the #coronavirus in the US?

1/
My first prediction on Apr 4 (toll @ 8k) was for the Easter Sunday (20k):

In my Apr 12 thread (toll @ 20k), I explained the fundamental systems concepts for the #coronavirus epidemic:

Cases of #pillage by corporate actors investigated and brought to justice are rare.

Very rare.

Still, TRIAL International in recent years has submitted no less than 4 such criminal cases to the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) of #Switzerland.
1/
The first complaint concerned the role played by #Argor-Heraeus in refining several tonnes of gold illegally extracted from the #DRC.
The OAG decided in 2015 to close it down.
Not being a civil party, TRIAL was unable to appeal the decision.
trialinternational.org/latest-post/sw…
2/
The second case, filed in 2016, concerns a Swiss businessman, Christoph Huber, currently under (very slow) investigation by the OAG for his role in the #looting of raw materials in the #DRC.
