Sen.  @Bernie Sanders lit into Pres. Trump’s handling of the Coronavirus pandemic during a livestream tonight focused on COVID-19. THREAD -->

1/ Since I have so many new followers as I'm  #LiveTweetingthePandemic, I thought I'd go over where things stand in Italy and how we got here. I think it will give you a good roadmap of what to expect in your near future.

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.<

Here’s some more tough love from the Yellow Zone in Italy as I’m  #LiveTweetingthePandemic, so please RETWEET it to your friends and family. Are you ready to deal with multiple waves of  #COVID2019? It’s something nobody’s really talking about. /1

 #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.

And this one should qualify him for an insane asylum:

This what it takes to protect yourself from COVID-19 

And Doctors in America because of government negligence and incompetence are forced to fight without.  

GIVE THEM PPE 😭

If our medical personnel go down, who will treat the American people? Mr. Trump: Utilize the Defense Production Act and protect our medical personnel.

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.

We have coordinated with U.S. organizations to transport more humanitarian relief to people in Wuhan. Personal protective equipment and other medical supplies donated by these organizations can help save lives in #China and help protect people from the #coronavirus.

😱OMG....the Trump Administration not only downplayed the seriousness of the #CoronavirusPandemic (despite warnings since January), they gave #China *nearly 18 tons* of key medical supplies—including VENTILATORS.

@SecPompeo POSTED VIDEO.🤬

A sobering chart of infected/deaths/% by country. Italy has almost a 11% rate, the US is 1.62% because it's still on the front end. The world avg is 4.63% but I think it's low cuz of China (false?) and US just starting.

Calculate a 6-10% of what the US infected might become.

My local hospital sent out HR packets to their staff members asking them to stop posting on social media about the severity of the pandemic. Right before telling them they were almost out of disinfectant with no ETA on the next shipment. Some nurses gave notice.

Smells like a tornado out today

🚨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.🤞🏼

*Preliminary* #COVID19 study in @JAMA_current 
- 5 critically ill pts. on mechanical ventilation
- All treated w/ convalescent plasma w/ #SARSCoV2 antibody  
- In 4/5, SOFA score⬇, viral loads⬇, ARDS resolved
- All 5 stabilized, 3 at home
* Need an RCT
