#TestAndTrace EVERYWHERE NOW 🐇 @Noahpinion Bloomberg Opinion writer. Writes about economics, tweets about rabbits. Doesn't actually look like William Butler Yeats. May. 05, 2020 2 min read

1/Coronavirus Tweets from the Experts, 5/4/2020 

2/Coronavirus in the Global South

3/One reason we started  was to try to help leaders understand what the exit strategy is.

4/Video reviews of papers are so kewl

5/Useful, data-filled thread on how COVID spreads, who transmits it, who gets it, etc.

6/More antibody tests coming.

7/Oh by the way, this is why #TestAndTrace only needs to trace CLOSE contacts, not casual contacts. You don't need to track down everyone who rode the same bus. This is not measles.

8/Why letting coronavirus spread through our population won't prompt it to mutate into a less deadly form.

9/Some data suggesting that yes, antibodies do successfully fight off COVID-19. But not definitive yet, so don't get cocky!

10/Remember the IHME model? It just doubled its projected U.S. deaths.

11/#TestAndTrace in the UK

12/As the U.S. epidemic has shifted from NY to places that don't report on weekends, day-of-the-week effects have become more pronounced. Use weekly cases & deaths to avoid these predictable rises and falls.

13/Why do we think it's safe to reopen when there are 30,000 new cases a day?

14/We don't yet know where SARS-CoV-2 came from, but scientists are on the case.

15/More on coronavirus biology

16/Once more for those in the back: Contact tracing is mostly about humans calling other humans up, NOT about scary-scary privacy-invading surveillance apps. In fact, those apps might not even be useful.

17/Experts agree, #TestAndTrace is the way to reopen our economy.

18/Why that IHME model keeps being wrong, and why you should be skeptical of what these sorts of models predict.

19/A thread of advice for Ohio on reopening its economy.

20/China is still covering up coronavirus-related stuff.

21/More on HCQ, if you still care!

22/Technical details of antibody tests.

23/Have red states been lulled into thinking that coronavirus won't hit them?

24/#TestAndTrace in Scotland!

25/Flattening the curve wasn't enough. We need to crush the curve.

26/Once again: Lockdown + #TestAndTrace is much much much much better than "herd immunity". And it works.

27/It's not a question of "the economy or people's lives".

If the virus is unleashed, people are not going to go out and shop.

28/Antibody tests are improving.

29/The U.S. is really an international standout in terms of how bad our coronavirus response has been.

30/A tool to help you access your COVID-19 risk:

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