How much of a difference can 100 miles and effective social media surveillance make? A whole lot if you take Taiwan’s success against #COVID19 into consideration.
#Taiwan, is only around 100 miles away from the coast of south eastern China. The country has a lot of trade and exchange with #China and yet is at a healthily low 159th position when it comes to the COVID19 standings. Taiwan only has a paltry 455 cases and 7 deaths.
If someone were to place a bet on Taiwan having only 455 cases after 6 months of #COVID19, that too without nationwide lockdowns, that person would have become a billionaire now. #Taiwan owes its success to technology. Period.

Ahora que estoy ordenando información sobre la pandemia del coronavirus de los últimos meses, vamos a hacer un hilo con algunos de los momentos que han quedado (o deberían) quedar en la memoria colectiva. Así que, toca HILO ... y bien largo. 👇👇👇
1. En diciembre, Li #Wenliang, oftalmólogo chino que trabajaba en el Hospital Central de #Wuhan, detectó siete casos de un virus que se asemejaba al #SARS, el que provocó una epidemia global en 2003. Se sospechaba que los casos provenían del mercado de pescados y mariscos Huanan.
2. El 30 diciembre, Li le envió un mensaje a sus colegas en Wechat, advirtió del brote y recomendó usar ropa protectora. Las capturas de pantalla con sus mensajes llegaron a los supervisores médicos y la policía, que lo acusó de difundir rumores falsos en internet (documento👇).

1. PRC's state media evidences it will engage @POTUS @RealDonaldTrump and the Koch funded anti lock-down #astroturf activities in war of words. The piece I saw will be effective to hurt Trump. But the CCP ignores that it suppressed Wuhan's Dr. Li #Wenliang's (李文亮) reporting.
2. China has every right to criticize Trump's reaction. So do we. But China kept the lid on this. Choosing propaganda over transparency the CCP was foolish. And involvement in our election is unacceptable even when it helps my party.
3. We're not defenseless against propaganda from either Trump or the CCP. #Truth is always the best way to counter it.

We need ticktock from the @WHO communications with both PRC and USA. What did CDC know and then do about testing? @RepAdamSchiff @MarkWarner @JoeBiden @maddow
