'Rajasthan'....Why NOT getting some limelight in #COVID19 context? At a Glance:
- 5119/mil tests
- 66% recovery rate
- 31% active cases
- 2.23% mortality
- 3% growth rate, which needs to be down further.
The state is doing fine so far!! #rajasthancoronaupdate Image
States w/ 1000+ #Covid_19 cases: Sample tested until 31 May & Positive rate(%)
#Maharashtra 14.63%, highest
Trouble: Delhi, Telangana, Bihar & Gujarat, need intervention.
Excellent: Andhra, Karnataka, J& K positive rate below 1.5%.
Good: Rajashthan, Haryana, UP #COVID19India Image
As on 1 June, #TamilNadu added 1162 new cases. Positive rate stands at 9.77%, highest in last 7 days. Recovery 57%, Active cases 42%, mortality is just 0.79%. #TamilNaduCoronaupdate #IndiaFightsCoronavirus @Sheks65 @pibchennai

Voy a ver si me explico:

Aparece un virus nuevo

Eso quiere decir q:

No hay tratamiento

No hay vacuna

Afectará a toda la población susceptible

Su impacto dependerá de:
Su letalidad
Su virulencia (capacidad de contagio)
Si es muy letal:

Se detectará pronto

Se aislarán rápidamente los enfermos y se evitará el contagio y expansión

Pasará rápido ya q no tendrá dónde reproducirse

Su impacto total dependerá de la facilidad de contagio
Si tiene baja letalidad y sobre todo si hay asintomáticos:

Se expandirá rápidamente
Será muy difícil el control de los focos y evitar nuevos contagios

Out today: Our new @TheLancet analysis of #ethics & #politics of #access to #testing #PPE & #Covid19 treatment. We must act now so to ensure that geopolitically powerful countries apply ethical standards & coordinate their procurement to access for #LMICs thelancet.com/journals/lance…
Many #African health systems lack capacity to respond if #COVID19 outbreaks get out of control. So #testing & #tracing are particularly vital.

Unfortunately, testing supplies are increasingly scarce, as #NorthAmerican & #European countries snap up everything on the market.
This mirrors failures in the #AIDS response—when testing & treatment came to #Africa years after it arrived in #US & #Europe, and long after the #pandemic had taken hold. This resulted in tens of millions of unnecessary deaths. @chidodc @DrWilfredoM @RenzoGuinto @paimadhu

So, let's take a look at the latest #ContactTracing effort to emerge: pepp-pt.org - not an app, but 'components' to build apps & systems.

(There's so many tracers popping up now, it's getting like the rash of #COVID19 #SymptomSurveys that broke out last week...)

1/n
Nice to hear that @PeppPt "embrace a fully #privacy-preserving approach". So what exactly is it? (The devil, of course, is always in the detail...)

Ah! Here we are, "a brief description of our #privacy enforcing flow":
pepp-pt.org/content

First, #AnonymousIdentifiers. Good. (And precisely what we recommended: medconfidential.org/wp-content/upl…)

This really is a no-brainer; anyone proposing to use persistent #deviceIDs at this point is plainly a clueless numpty. Or actively seeking to #surveille.

La dizione #Asintomatico compare più spesso in pubblicazioni scientifiche con (o senza ma con evidente riferimento a) varia ulteriore #specificazione e rivolto a soggetti #affetti (es. infezioni: #asintomatici #infetti, pazienti infetti asintomatici, casi asintomatici, ecc.) 1/14
ma #senza #manifestazioni cliniche (sintomi e segni). Tuttavia pare che il termine #asintomatico abbia anche un significato più ampio, cioè di soggetto #senza #manifestazioni cliniche il cui esatto #stato di #salute, di #affetto o meno, sia #determinabile solo con un #test. 2/14
Almeno così potrebbe sembrare dalle letture di un profano come me che ha fatto alcune ricerche. Ad es. su #PubMed sono molteplici le pubblicazioni che esplicitano che gli #asintomatici possano essere anche #non #infetti e #negativi alla diagnostica. 3/14

Growth rate is key during a disease outbreak. The rate of growth in the the total confirmed #cases in #Canada seems to be showing signs of slowing and pulling away from the continued steep trend line seen, for example, in the United States (Green). #COVID19 #coronavirus 1/25
This is a +ve sign, but still very early to tell, esp. with an est. 1M+ #Canadians having just returned from travel, and #COVID-19 #testing only targeting >severe cases (due to rationing & backlog in lab testing), we don’t have a good grasp on the level of community spread. 2/25
The number of total cases is what we want to know, but the true number of these is not known. Not by us epidemiologists, nor by any other research, governmental or reporting institution. 3/25

Ces propos tenus aujourd’hui encore par le gouvernement français devant le Sénat sur sa doctrine assumée anti-#masques respiratoires de protection est un message proprement inacceptable en terme de santé publique...
Le 1er juillet 2011, le Haut Conseil de la santé publique considérait qu’en cas de crise importante telle que le Sras, il y avait "une efficacité préventive élevée des masques anti-projection et des appareils de protection respiratoire."
L'actuel Directeur Général de la Santé, dans un mail daté du 11 janvier 2017 au sein de l'équipe de campagne de E. Macron, défendait le "port du masque par les malades généralisé" en France à l'exemple de l'Asie.lopinion.fr/edition/politi…

Benchmark des stratégies épidémiologiques en #Italie : la Région #Veneto a choisi une stratégie "déviante" de #tests systématiques par rapport à la stratégie nationale italienne... une stratégie de la région Veneto qui semble porter ses fruits par rapport aux autres régions...
La stratégie des tests en #Italie varie fortement d'une région à l'autre : des tests systématiques, à la sud-coréenne, dans la région #Veneto et des tests uniquement en cas de symptômes dans d'autres régions. francescocosta.net/2020/03/19/dat…
La région #Vénétie suit l'exemple de la Corée du Sud, elle a même mis en place des #tests aléatoires aux passants asymptomatiques à la sortie des supermarchés. ilsole24ore.com/art/veneto-com…

I want to share some information about why this is so serious.

Many people are wondering, understandably, why we have to take unprecedented measures, disrupting and devastating the economy and people's lives, to halt the spread of this virus. (1/20)
Today US confirmed #coronavirus cases surpassed 10,000 confirmed cases, an 8000% increase in 15 days. Of course this is a huge undercount because there have been relatively few tests done. What we do right now will determine what happens next. (2/20)
I've been focused on sharing info and advocacy related to the economic impact and the immediate impact of the shelter in place order, which are incredibly disruptive and devastating, especially for people who are already economically vulnerable. (3/20)

1\ I gave a lightning talk today on "Why I stopped call it #unit #testing” at our internal #mobile #apps and beyond conference
2\ Because whenever you ask teams about it they don’t tell you what #unit #testing means. Instead they say “of course we do!” And show you 100s of passing tests
3\ What you start to notice is that everyone assumes the other knows what unit #testing is but it’s when you ask “What do the unit tests test?” Thats when you get some interesting responses.
