#Thread Jules is no longer on a ventilator. She died as an ICU nurse this morning from Covid-19. I do this brief thread for her and all of you on the frontlines of a pandemic that has raged out of control with deadly misinformation nationally
and zero coordination and no plan. ---- When we send our troops to war to defend and protect women and children from wartime atrocities, we pray for them, we are grateful for their sacrifice and we hope they return home safely with a successful mission of
Saving lives and restoring peace. When police officers are sent to a home where a child is being abused, or to the scene of a mass shooting, we are grateful our officers are there to save lives and appreciate their sacrifice for putting their own lives
on the line. Firefighters who run into burning buildings and rescue people from death and often see death as do our police and military. Our doctors and nurses go to a warzone every day. Let's use Hamilton: they're outgunned (not enough PPE, not enough beds
Outmanned (more patients than healthcare professionals) Outnumbered (too many people not wearing masks and social distancing) Outplanned (they don't have a say in how this goes-the LACK of planning means we're back to first point-they're at war. Concluding:
We are in the middle of war and just because you don't see it or experience it doesn't mean it isn't there. Almost 300,000 lives. Do it for our medical troops. They're outmanned and outgunned. They need us. Rest in peace, Jules. 💔

@JoeBiden @KamalaHarris:

@PeterHotez has a national strategy to contain #Covid and save 100,000 American lives by December 31st. He had to revise his plan as his original plan for containment by October 1st was ignored by the White House. As you both
are aware, the United States has no national strategy, and without leadership and expertise guiding our country, people continue to be become infected and thousands die. On average, as of October 6th, around 919 people per day continue to die of this
novel coronavirus. The daily death toll from seasonal #flu, using prelim max estimates from the 2019-2020 flu season, is an average of almost 332 people. You can go to covidtracking.com to view data.
