This is cruel. I was an international student here in the US and attended some of the best universities in my field. I'm thankful that back then, top international talent was treated with respect and encouraged to stay to make this country competitive in a global economy.

This is bad. ICE just told students here on student visas that if their school is going online-only this fall, the students must depart the United States and cannot remain through the fall semester.

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem accompanied Trump to Washington aboard Air Force One on Friday night despite having had close contact with Kimberly Guilfoyle, who had tested positive for the coronavirus. https://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2020-07-06/south-dakota-governor-exposed-to-virus-join...

Kanye West received a PPP loan according to federal documents released today. His net worth is $1.3 billion.

I am healthy, under 50, exercise regularly, and this virus hit me for 6 weeks. This messaging will kill people.

“We should be placing as much emphasis on masks and ventilation as we do with hand washing [and social distancing],” Dr. Marr said. “As far as we can tell, this is equally important, if not more important.”

It is Time to Address Airborne Transmission of COVID-19 https://academic.oup.com/cid/article/doi/10.1093/cid/ciaa939/5867798#.XwM3aMoaQ6w.twitter Proud to have worked on this with a multidisciplinary group of experts led by Lidia Morawska.

Masks, airborne, droplets have been a topic, again, after the NYT piece...I think this on airborne disease study is *so* interesting. Featuring interviews with  @Linsey Marr Dyk that after abx for TB et. al + vaccines airborne study was deprioritized? https://www.popsci.com/take-deep-breath/

The South Pole has been warming at over three times the global average over the past 30 years, a new study has found. That could have huge implications for the melting of Antarctic ice sheets, marine life in the region and the rising of global sea levels. https://cnn.it/2CaMCWq

 @Michael Ravitch  @Gregg Gonsalves A great % of high school rooms have no windows. Millions of kids live with/depend on grandparents , esp in vulnerable communities. Teachers are older, tending to high underlying conditions. And then we have flu season which is going to juice up covid mortality numbers.

Is this real? Why am I just NOW seeing any news about it?! A  #coronavirus breathalyzer?!? Please be real! 🤞 (And if it is, these need to be manufactured world-wide ASAP!) https://ajn.timesofisrael.com/israel-invents-one-minute-coronavirus-breath-test/

-The Department of Education has revealed that 523 learners and over 1 000 teachers had been infected -This comes as the department plans to allow the return of even more students in a few days time  https://briefly.co.za/69617-775-schools-hit-by-covid-19-1169-teachers-523-students-infected.html?utm...

 @Andy Slavitt @ 🏡  @🤔🤨🌊sandra RESISTS🌊🤨🤔 There should have been masks in everyone's mailbox three months ago. They cost 69 cents. You still can't get them on Amazon.

People like him and his team, a laissez-faire government, you and your mask sewing & America’s profiteers are what we get in the best & worst of America. Make no mistake. It’s July, every American should have access to high quality masks by now.

We face a similar situation with testing. A great leader would make sure tests were available for everyone. A good one would at least take accountability. A bad one would take mine.

A great leader would procure masks for every American. A good one would require mask use. A bad one doesn’t care.

Trump’s we “just have to live with it” approach doesn’t include living with it with the best tools in the world. It doesn’t include ramping US manufacturing. It doesn’t include a Task Force to oversee the effort. It just includes an expectation that Americans fend for themselves.

COVID Update July 5: Trump wants Americans to risk their health & get back to work to save the economy & reelection. My response: “You first.”

A 5 day backlog with a 5 day incubation period & 40% or so asymptomatic spreaders? And you want people feeling safe going back to work? Buying cars? Going on vacations? Mr President, you get to work & fix this first.

What about masks? What Hong Kong & the Czech Republic & S Korea figured out months ago, we have turned in to a contest of “who’s scared of a little virus?”

"The most patriotic thing you can do in America this weekend is stay home," says Dr. Corey Hébert. "The line between science and politics is being dangerously blurred right now." "Don't choose barbecue and beer over your life and your family's life." https://on.msnbc.com/3gmX0cG

 @Andy Slavitt @ 🏡 It also bothers me that pro athletes will be tested frequently to play games while the rest wait for hours in cars for a test that may not yield results for days or weeks. If there are not enough tests for everyone then why use so many for so few?

There’s one place with lots of testing & lots of mask wearing. That’s in the White House near the Presisent & his family. You want us to go without test & masks, “you first.”

Houston mayor warns hospital system close to "overwhelmed" amid COVID spike https://cbsn.ws/2Z34rzT

My HAMILTON hot take is that every Broadway musical should be recorded and made available to the public so they can be seen by more than rich New Yorkers.
