#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, 4/30/2020 

2/An important point: U.S. *infections* have probably peaked. Deaths lag infections.

3/A thread about the U.S. plateau. We're decreasing so slowly that we might not have a second wave: just one long continuous wave that takes all year to go away.

4/Why has the U.S. coronavirus response been so bad?

Lack of good federal leadership seems like the biggest reason.

5/Again, why #TestAndTrace is so important.

6/And yet more on #TestAndTrace

7/Modeling the course of the epidemic is really hard, actually.

8/Companies are investing a lot of money in coronavirus treatments. A lot of those investments are going to fail. But the investments are being made!!

9/What can other coronaviruses tell us about this one?

10/Masks work.

11/If you haven't read this yet, read it.

12/Bob Wachter's daily coronavirus roundup thread. Always great.

13/Why Remdesivir is unlikely to be our savior.

14/Panic about coronavirus "reinfections" is probably unwarranted.

15/Still surprised at how big a backlash Tomas Pueyo's posts got, just because they were published on Medium. Pueyo does extensive research and his stuff is endorsed by lots of experts.

16/Yes, kids can give coronavirus to adults.

17/This seems important, but I don't know what it means.

18/Remember that there's really no "true" fatality rate for COVID-19.

In this long-term care facility, every single person got the disease, and 46% of the people have died so far.

19/If you haven't seen this infographic on vaccines yet, check it out.

20/Some evidence that coronavirus comes from bats.

21/And here's another big vaccine development infographic that you should check out if you're interested in vaccines.

22/A report about how coronavirus spreads and mutates.

23/Testing is going to miss some infections.

24/Folks are looking for off-the-shelf drugs to repurpose to fight coronavirus. Seems like a long shot, but they're going about it very systematically.

25/Italy suppressed coronavirus. Something the U.S. hasn't yet managed to do.

26/A thread on all the tricks that various types of viruses use.

27/Derek Lowe's thoughts on Remdesivir. Upshot: It's no game-changer.

28/Closing beaches and parks should not be a priority.

29/Oooh, this is cool. An antibody QUALITY test.

30/Another thread on Remdesivir studies.

31/Perhaps we should consider providing more protection to people in prisons, meat packing plants, and nursing homes

32/Thirty years old.

33/Thread on kids infecting adults.

34/Almost all credible studies place the "true" death rate (IFR) of coronavirus at a bit less than 1%. This one says it's much lower. Can we write it off?

35/Connecticut is not doing a great job at containing coronavirus.

36/And that's all for today, folks! Come back tomorrow for more Coronavirus Tweets from the Experts!
