2/ When coughing and sneezing cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue - throw issue away immediately and wash hands.

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. 30, 2020 2 min read

1/Coronavirus Tweets from the Experts, 4/29/2020 

2/In which @ASlavitt explains why we need 180,000 contact tracers nationwide: 

3/Similar viral loads between symptomatic and asymptomatic patients? Interesting!

4/12 to 14 million Americans are estimated to have been infected with coronavirus.

This is what a massive public health failure looks like.

5/New studies suggest that Remdesivir helps a little bit.

6/How coronavirus spreads from kids to adults:

7/New coronavirus site from Johns Hopkins:

8/"Reinfections" are probably just false positives + people who never actually cleared the virus.

9/This isn't the last pandemic. It might not even be the last wave of this virus. Will we be prepared the next time?

10/Letting coronavirus rampage through society = 80 flu seasons

11/I was also tricked by this trick of perspective. People who are socially distancing can look close together in a zoom lens.

12/Don't get toooooo excited about Remdesivir.

13/Once again, contact tracing is mostly about HIRING LOTS OF PEOPLE TO DO MANUAL CONTACT TRACING, not about fancy Bluetooth apps

14/Coronavirus has now killed more than 0.2% of New York City (despite lockdown!).

Anyone else still want to claim this thing has a 0.1% or 0.02% mortality rate or whatever??

Didn't think so.

15/Yet another example of poor U.S. leadership in this pandemic.

16/Saliva-based coronavirus tests will improve our testing situation.

17/No, we're not anywhere near herd immunity.

18/Some more skepticism about that positive result for Remdesivir.

19/It's still not clear that U.S. deaths have peaked.

20/What a good pandemic response (i.e., not the U.S. response) looks like:

21/Another study on "airborne" transmission of coronavirus.

Upshot: Indoors is dangerous. Ventilate well.

22/Some forecasts of coronavirus deaths in the U.S.

23/How will the pandemic end?

24/A good piece by @edyong209:

25/SF continues to do well at containing coronavirus.

26/More weirdness at the CDC.

27/Given that it's the Trump administration doing this, my hopes are less than high.

28/Once again: Please do not drink bleach

29/What do other coronaviruses tell us about this one?

30/The latest research on the immunology of the coronavirus.

31/Criticism of the IHME team:

32/Viral load of coronavirus cases doesn't seem to depend on age.

33/Another reason you should take the new Remdesivir studies with a grain of salt.

34/Some infographics of coronavirus vaccine efforts. Posted this yesterday, but worth posting again.

35/The idea that coronavirus is a super-infectious disease and that most people are already immune continues to NOT be supported by data.

36/This is why I bought my dad a snorkeling mask when this all started.

37/The Slavitt/Gottlieb plan really is the best plan.

Let's do all we can to help promote it.

38/For those hoping summer heat will stop the virus...

39/Data on the antibody response to coronavirus.

40/Learn how contact tracing really works!

41/Central quarantine is probably better than home isolation. But can America actually do it??

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