This is a thread of mine from 2 wks ago that I think it's time to RT now that more of you are being affected. It's a reality that people need to start understanding, accepting and planning for. >This may be a new way of life for the foreseeable future. It's not just 2-4 weeks.<
#Wuhan residents estimate, based on calculations of cremations and urns now being returned to families, that between 42k-46k (!!) died in city + surrounding areas in the 2.5 months of lockdown. Far more than official figure of 2535 deaths. #COVID19 http://www.rfa.org/english/news/china/wuhan-deaths-03272020182846.html
Very compelling visual evidence (using a VERY conservative ex ante case growth curve) of the impact of #SocialDistancing on the #Covid19 outbreak in #Italy. #6ftApartNOTUnder . Reminder that we would expect to see more impact on April 3/4 when last policy measure will be felt. https://twitter.com/thehowie/status/1244317303417769990

Now we know why the US stockpile of emergency equipment, gloves & masks is empty. It was given to China when Trump/Pompeo knew or should have known the devastation the US would be in for. This is shocking to every American. Trump must be removed from office. No excuses, GOP.
🚨BREAKING: *preliminary* data show potential benefit of convalescent plasma containing #coronavirus antibodies (from recovered #COVID19 patients) for the treatment of critically ill patients. Same approach was used for H1N1 and Spanish Flu. Larger study needed to confirm.🤞🏼
