I hope you got some rest and that your spirit finds comfort and joy today.
I consulted with some folks-healthcare and public health experts-about the thread that’s been going around.
Here’s the deal (short thread):
2. Though scary, they *are* a helpful projection for those looking for that info, and to understand the gravity of we don’t move urgently.
WE DO NOT HAVE TO MEET THAT OUTCOME IF EVERYONE DOES THEIR PART.
What is your part? Glad you asked.
It MUST INCLUDE:
-SIZABLE, DIRECT payments to people. The less people worry & have to go out, the better.
-PROTECTIONS for the elderly and chronically ill.
-RESOURCES FOR CREATION of the things we need now, like ventilators.
-developing new tests
-treating early to reduce mortality
-providing funding like y’all did w #GivingSpree (more of this from the govt and uber wealthy pls)
again: we do NOT have to meet those outcomes!
1. You will only read it if/when you have the mental and spiritual capacity to swallow blunt info & access to your supports
2. Remember: these figures aren’t wrong, but they are NOT INEVITABLE IF WE ACT & do our part ❤️✊🏾
I want to make sure the information I am passing is both accurate to the best we know and well rounded.
In all of this, have hope in the indomitable human spirit & our will to survive. ❤️✊🏾
They are useful in policy and understanding the *possible* risk.
