BREAKING: The Trump administration has rescinded a rule that would have forced international students to leave the country if their colleges hold classes online this fall. The administration was sued over the new policy by Harvard and MIT. http://apne.ws/p0KqbpI

By limiting the suffering of patients & despair of loved ones, we maintain our humanity through the most trying of times. Our empathy is on display when we act on behalf of the welfare of our fellow man. Isn’t this the least we should expect from our President? (/END.)

By limiting the number of patients who end up hospitalized, we also ensure that resources needed for the care of others are available. People will continue to have heart attacks, appendicitis & motor vehicle crashes. But with full hospitals, their care is hindered. (8/9)

Beyond saving the lives of those most at risk, I find value in limiting the number of people who contract the virus simply to limit the pain and suffering they must endure. This major goal of medicine should be reflected in the policies our leaders pursue. But they are not. (7/9)

And even those who are not ill enough to require hospitalization can have very serious symptoms. Fatigue, body aches, fever, and difficulty breathing keeps many out of work for 2-4 weeks. Many have fatigue and trouble breathing for weeks after that. (6/9)

People with  #COVID19 have increased risk of strokes, heart attacks & blood clots in the lungs. Some who recover end up with persistent decreased heart function. Kids have been shown to have higher risk of multi-system inflammatory syndrome. Should we just shrug at that too? (5/9)

Even if you survive,  #COVID19 is still a serious illness for many. About 1 in 5 require hospitalization. Significant numbers end up in the ICU. Even with recovery, some of these patients go on to develop lung disease from scarring of the lungs. Should we just shrug at that? (4/9)

But here's the real point:  #COVID19 is causing a ton of suffering & despair, even when there isn't death. Should we just discount that? Providing comfort & respite from pain is a huge role I fill in my patients’ lives. I wish  @Donald J. Trump had a similar view of his job. (3/9)

First, it may not even be true. Death is a lagging indicator of  #COVID19 cases, meaning we won't know how many people are dying as part of this current surge until 3-4 weeks later. (Plus, if deaths *are* down, it's partly because we know how to treat it better now). (2/9)

Physically reopening schools is a worthy goal. But we must not repeat the mistakes of countries like S Korea & Israel, which reopened schools then shut them down and are trying again. We succeed by first suppressing  #COVID19 in the community, and by increasing funds to schools.

As an ER doctor, I feel compelled to correct a dangerous & upsetting new talking point from  @Donald J. Trump. Lately he's been "boasting" that while  #COVID19 rates are soaring, *deaths* are not as high. This is extremely disturbing for a few reasons. (1/9)

Donald Trump says if you test, you create cases. Donald Trump is out of his fucking mind.

 @Ari Fleischer Reporters are allowed to call out the obvious . Unfortunately for your team, trump is blatantly obvious in his lies and deceptions. He should be called out this way every http://opportunity.Like “No sir there aren’t more cases because of more tests”

 @Ari Fleischer Doesn’t matter who said it because it’s so obviously true.

 @Ari Fleischer Congratulations, it's nice that you are acknowledginging that the DNC, Biden, and CNN are all correct in their assessment of Trump's gross incompetence.

@AriFleischer WARNING:
Those who choose to turn a blind eye to Trump’s corruption, immorality, facism, racism, homophobia, inciting violence, hatred as his core message will become like those after Nazi Germany and the Third Reich. Scurrying to find a place to hide from society. Count. On. It.

 @Ari Fleischer All of these things are true. The President just said there is not a surge in Covid cases. That alone proves  @John Harwood case.He doesn't know what he's doing. Cases are surging He is not telling the truth. And, by misleading the public it proves he only cares about himself.

 @Ari Fleischer By the time you get to 20,000 lies it’s time to call the president what he is.

Who said the following on live TV about Trump's attempts to discredit Dr. Fauci? "I'm talking about the president now, who doesn't know what he's doing, is not honest and cares about no one else other than himself." A. DNC spokesman B. Biden spokesman C. CNN WH "reporter"

CDC Director Robert Redfield: “I do think the fall and the winter of 2020 and 2021 are going to be the probably one of the most difficult times that we experienced in American public health.”

So to summarize - The Trump Administration has rescinded the 7/6 F-1 students directive. Schools can go online if they want. No new I-20s needed. F-1 visas should be proceeding. Congratulations Harvard and the Wilmer Hale team. Big big win!

Breathing in a small amount of virus may lead to no disease or a mild infection. But inhaling a large volume of virus particles can result in severe symptoms or death. So, again -- wear a mask. via  @Ron Lin  @maura dolan https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-07-14/evidence-mounts-that-masks-help-lower-your-expos...

Biden said that poor communities and communities of color would receive 40 percent of the investments he’s proposing to build new sustainable houses, reduce pollution and invest in clean energy workforce development and transportation. http://hill.cm/1RcaXFK

This story needs more attention: is Cohen being blocked from writing a book?

I appreciate how @AliVelshi framed this segment in hosting @MaddowBlog Monday. 

He references my @just_security article where I asked #FirstAmendment experts about Cohen book-imprisonment.

Velshi: “chilling” “sign this paper saying you won’t write a book or go back to prison”

“[My son] went to someone's home. There was a few people there and I'm sure they were eating, drinking and they felt it was fine to take the mask off. No one seemed to be sick,” says FL mom Michelle Zymet.

Now the whole family has Covid-19, and the father is on a ventilator.

How is a resignation silencing? Wouldn’t that be self silencing?

FWIW, I am a proud Democrat. I was a D in the womb. But, I would take a Governor  @Adam Putnam any day of the week, any day of the year over Ron. Adam wanted to be governor because he loves Florida. Ron ran for governor as a launching pad to run for president. Not going to happen.

Retweeting my tweet of May 12, 2020 which is prequel to my last tweet today. I observed  @Ron DeSantis in Congress & figured him out. He was incompetent & unengaged. He was a back bencher. He is governor because of  @Donald J. Trump. We are paying the price in illness & death.

I want every single American to know: If you're sick, struggling, or worried about how you're going to get through the day, I will not abandon you.

We're all in this together. And together, we'll emerge stronger than before.

We have now surpassed 3,500,000 confirmed coronavirus cases. The US now makes up 26.3% of worldwide cases, although we compose just 4.2% of the population. On a per capita basis, we are performing far worse than any democracies with advanced medicine. And it is getting worse!
