1/Coronavirus Tweets from the Experts, 4/28/2020 

2/Wow, these are...not good outcomes.

3/Remember to always wait until Tuesday to decide whether the U.S. is really doing better.

4/An optimistic vaccine prediction.

5/Another optimistic vaccine prediction.

6/Experts think Georgia is making a mistake.

7/A big problem with antibody tests is that there are a lot of them, and some aren't reliable.

8/Even if antibody tests don't determine immunity, they're still useful.


10/Infographic on coronavirus vaccines!!

11/A big new report about antibody studies.


13/Human challenge studies!

14/An argument for testing stuff before prescribing it.

15/@NPR is doing a great job of promoting #TestAndTrace!

16/Why we need #TestAndTrace: If we reopen the economy without it, the virus comes back. Even with everyone wearing masks.

17/Good leadership matters. And we don't have it.

18/How many tests do we need?


19/Epidemiologists vs. maverick governors

20/Epidemiologists vs. maverick governors, again

21/God, we failed so hard on coronavirus testing.

22/A vaccine will take a long time. But we might get MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES much more quickly than a vaccine.

Check it out!

23/More insight into a battle in the world of epidemiology. Reminds me of the Macro Wars on economics blogs during the Great Recession.

24/Do some COVID-19 victims fail to become immune after recovering?

25/LOLLL, some people made up a fake quote and attributed it to a Japanese scientist. Some friends actually sent me this one before it was found to be a fake.

26/The U.S. response to coronavirus has been bad, but so has the global response.

27/The U.S. wasn't just bad at testing for COVID-19. It has been bad at suppressing COVID-19. Both our economy and our people will pay the price.

28/In fact, we cut funding for the study of coronaviruses a while ago.


29/Coronavirus causes a lot of heart problems, it seems.

30/Track the strains of the coronavirus!

31/HCQ Mania is waning as disappointing evidence rolls in.

32/See where the coronavirus hotspots are.

33/Can we really test MILLIONS of Americans a day?

34/Bad news from L.A.

35/Once again, the Slavitt/Gottlieb plan is the best plan for federal #TestAndTrace . It needs to succeed.

36/I may have mentioned this once or twice, but there is STRONG expert support for #TestAndTrace (also known as #TestTraceIsolate).

37/A new Pueyo post explaining #TestAndTrace.

38/More on vaccines.

The Big Guns are coming out.

39/Listen to an interview with Gottlieb and Slavitt about their awesome new plan for reopening.

40/Keep your nose warm! Maybe we should start wearing fashionable nosemuffs?

41/A whole lot of evidence on the "true" fatality rate (IFR) of coronavirus. Seems to be converging at...a little under 1%, just as experts thought!

42/Experts vs. disinformation campaigns:

43/A video showing why masks work.

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