2/A lot of surplus labor out there! HIRE MORE CONTACT TRACERS!!


3/Here's a way coronavirus might hurt kids:

4/Why sending kids back to school could be very dangerous:

5/Some numbers on how many tests each state needs in order reopen safely:

6/This is less household transmission than I would have guessed.

7/A plan to stop COVID-19, by a group of scientists including @VirusesImmunity (who is one of the best experts to follow, btw):

8/This is the most important thing happening in U.S. coronavirus policy right now. This plan needs to be funded immediately.

Also, @ASlavitt and @ScottGottliebMD are two experts you should absolutely follow if you don't already.


9/This is the kind of message we need more of on Fox News.

10/Sign up here to help people collect more data about coronavirus!

11/Remember, epidemiologists, like economists, do not speak with one voice.

12/New York deaths continue to decline, deaths in the rest of the country continue to fluctuate wildly (looks to me like lumpy reporting).

13/Some potentially interesting new testing technology.

14/A thread about bad stats in the media, as applied to the question of what lockdowns accomplish.

15/A heroic inventor.

16/Discussion of digital contact tracing.

It continues to frustrate me that so much of our attention is being paid to such a minor piece of the contact tracing puzzle.

17/What is coronavirus' true fatality rate? NYC is providing some answers, and the numbers are...pretty much what everyone thought a month ago! Somewhere between 0.78% and 1.3%.

18/I'm still not super excited about Remdesivir, and this makes me even less excited.

19/Andy Slavitt on why we need masks, masks, masks

20/Italy successfully suppressed coronavirus.

21/So many experts joining the push for the Slavitt/Gottlieb #TestAndTrace plan!

22/There are two pre-existing anti-inflammatory antibody drugs being tested against COVID-19. One is looking good in trials, another is looking bad. How can that be?

23/This is cool.

24/An antiviral coating to protect surfaces against coronavirus. Could help!

25/Wow, the Slavitt/Gottlieb Test-and-Trace plan is super bipartisan! Nice to know people can still reach across the aisle in a time of crisis.

26/No matter what, we're going to have to avoid large crowds until treatment/vaccine becomes available.

27/Under-emphasized point: Manufacturing huge amounts of vaccines is a huge challenge.

28/The official number of global coronavirus deaths is around 211,000 right now, but this data suggests it's well over 300,000.

29/Antibody tests from Wuhan.

30/"Why not just send young people out to work while old people stay home?", you might ask.

Well, read this:

31/Whoa, Boston.

32/Why #TestAndTrace, also known as #TestTraceIsolate, is such an important tool in our fight against coronavirus.

33/That's all for today, folks! Join me tomorrow for more Coronavirus Tweets from the Experts!
