“Nothing more could have been done” Mr. President??? FALSE! So much more:

📌Early & more testing
📌Invoking Defense Production Act for PPEs
📌More contact tracing
📌Support masks
📌Supporting lockdowns instead of undermining
📌More unemployment help
📌Not downplaying #COVID19
2) And then afterwards Trump proceeded to tout about how ‘oh the stock market is great’. Yuck.
3) All the while everyone in WH knew it was dangerous early on. Eg this WH sneezing incident.
4) Trump also knew it was the plague back in April.

📍RE-INFECTION UPDATE: 20 cases of formal reinfection has now been documented (genome 🧬 sequence). Up +5 from just last week. Severity data shows 8 of 14 had a 2nd infection that’s more severe, 4 of 8 were moderate to severe; 3 of 14 less severe. #COVID19 bnonews.com/index.php/2020… Image
2) The 4 newest reinfections were even confirmed by a very very detailed investigation to undercover them by a @Cornell and @WHO team in Qatar. This reinfection is real folks.
3) And by detailed investigation- they literally turned over every rock from 15,808 people with multiple test swabs... and went thru 243 people medical records and did detailed analysis of these potential reinfections and 🧬 to find the 4 new reinfection cases. HARDCORE! ImageImage

📍WARNING—60%-70% of all KN95 masks imported from China do *not* meet NIOSH 95% filtration standard it claims. Some real—Yet many fake KN95s used by healthcare workers across US & world. You can’t tell what is real or fake (photo) by labeling. 🧵 #COVID19 forbes.com/sites/robertgl… Image
2) Key points on KN95 masks:
📌You cannot judge authenticity by its appearance, labeling, or packaging.

📌In instances, ECRI has received samples that, despite being labeled the same model, look slightly diff, and perform sig differently in filtration.
3) 📌ECRI testing of imported FFRs has revealed that 60-70% provide only sub-95% filtration performance.

📌This trend aligns with what NIOSH has found through their own testing; as of September 2, 2020, 53% of the 358 FFR models tested did not meet N95 filtration requirements

📍CRITICAL—read this vaccine horror scenario below by the “Jane Goodall of vaccine epidemiology”. Dr. Jenna Patterson is American but who then dedicated her life to global health & spent 8 years living & working in Sub-Saharan Africa by age 27.

➡️Listen to her concern👇#COVID19
2) Read this article after reading Dr. @jenna_patt’s thread 🧵. @andreafeigl1 @HealthFinInst medium.com/@healthfininst…
3) Dr Patterson (aka Jane Goodall of vaccine research in Africa)’s thread again about the article above.

WOWZERS—Today @DrTedros announced that WHO will be providing 120,000,000 rapid antigen #COVID19 tests (15-30 min results) to millions in low & middle income countries! A partnership w/ @AfricaCDC @CHAI_health @FINDdx, @gatesfoundation @GlobalFund @UNITAID.
2) Lots of questions: what are rapid antigen tests? How are they different? What do they mean for us? All answered in this thread 🧵
3) Full details from WHO about the new rapid antigen testing initiative. It’s is a special accelerator and funding partnership that will allow cheap access to these tests. who.int/news-room/deta…

HUGE. **Rapid** 15 min tests approved by @WHO—a bold & right step for #COVID19. Akin to home pregnancy tests, rapid antigen tests better than PCR where labs scares & lag is long. Rapid tests are cheap & identifies *infectious* cases & fast isolation. Game changer for pandemic! 🧵
2) Rapid antigen testing is described as “The plan that could give our lives back”. Leading advocate is Harvard epidemiologist Dr Michael Mina @michaelmina_lab. He believes if we need to deploy millions of antigen tests to epidemic hotspots.

3) For those needing a background, unlike PCR tests which tests for the RNA genome of the coronavirus, the antigen tests for protein parts of the virus. PCR slightly more sensitive but PCR often finds RNA 🧬 fragments of non infectious virus pieces even when later can’t transmit.

Um, wow. @CDCDirector throws Trump pandemic advisor Scott Atlas under bus: “Everything he says is false” Dr. Robert Redfield said in a conversation with a colleague on Dr. Scott Atlas misleading Trump about masks, young people, and herd immunity. #COVID19 nbcnews.com/politics/polit…
2) "Everything he says is false," Redfield said during a phone call made in public on an airline and overheard by @NBCNews.

Redfield acknowledged after flight from Atlanta to Washington, D.C., that he was speaking about Atlas, brought on to the White House task force in August.
3) Sidenote: AMAZING that we get our insider info into the WH pandemic response via just casual eavesdropping casually on a commercial airline these days. Kudos to whoever the @NBCNews reporter was for tracking down Redfield afterwards.
