3/ Avoid close contact with anyone that has fever and cough.

#TestAndTrace EVERYWHERE NOW 🐇 @Noahpinion Bloomberg Opinion writer. Writes about economics, tweets about rabbits. Doesn't actually look like William Butler Yeats. Apr. 27, 2020 3 min read

1/Coronavirus Tweets from the Experts, 4/26/2020 

2/A small bit of good news

3/Antivaxxers: Still probably the worst people in America.

4/Ride shares still haven't put in plastic barriers?!!

5/Once again: Do not drink bleach, even if you are the kind of person who would be crazy enough to drink bleach

6/The fact that coronavirus can spread from asymptomatic people is the scariest thing about it.

7/Data on how the immune system responds to coronavirus.

8/Where is the U.S. coronavirus epidemic headed from here? If you don't listen to Gottlieb, you really ought to!

9/Excess death estimates for coronavirus. This will include stuff like overloading of hospitals, etc.

10/Some antibody tests are not great.

11/More on keeping antibody tests in perspective.

12/New York's outbreak is (finally) abating, but in states like Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Colorado, and Virginia, things are getting worse.

13/Can coronavirus mess up your kidneys?


15/What we need to do to stop coronavirus until treatments and vaccines emerge.

16/Some dodgy doctors from Bakersfield.

17/It would be nice if some off-the-shelf drug helped against coronavirus. Highly unlikely, but it would be nice. Here's another candidate:

18/More on asymptomatic spreaders.

19/Time for #Helmets4All??

20/Things aren't looking good for interferon therapy for coronavirus, but the jury is still out.

21/We're repeating some of the mistakes we made with the Spanish Flu.

22/If you haven't read this guide to potential coronavirus therapies, check it out. 

23/Again: Everyone talks about digital contact tracing, but that's just a flashy experimental thing. Real contact tracing, as it actually exists right now, is just an army of people with clipboards and phones.

24/Do not mess with coronavirus, people. This shit will END you.

25/We need more dang TESTS.

26/Masks work.

27/It wasn't density that doomed NYC to the country's worst coronavirus outbreak (so far). Bad leadership, however, did play a role.

28/We might have just learned something very important about how the body fights off coronavirus.

29/Spain is over the hump.

20/Remember, even with #TestAndTrace, we need to maintain a degree of social distancing til we get treatment/vaccine.

21/"But Sweden's doing fine"


22/People are calling their state governments and asking if it's OK to drink bleach.

33/Yes I messed up the numbering. Whoops!

Anyway, some people are drinking bleach. Wheeeeeeeee

34/Make some toy epidemiological models!

35/The global progress of coronavirus.

36/Unlike America, Canada is succeeding in rapidly suppressing its epidemic.

37/Learn about how contact tracing works, and how technology *might* improve traditional methods.

38/Remember the other day when the WHO said there was no evidence that coronavirus infection conferred immunity?

...Yeah, it took that back.

39/New Zealand is among the ranks of nations with the most effective coronavirus responses.

40/What's going on with Swedish epidemiology?

41/Andy Slavitt's long coronavirus threads are highly informative and good.

42/One of the epidemiologists who eradicated smallpox looks at America in the time of coronavirus and thinks: WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?

43/History will record the mini-epidemic of bleach-drinking as one of the wackier little episodes of the Great Coronavirus Plague...

44/And that's all for today! Tune in tomorrow for more Coronavirus Tweets from the Experts...
