1/It's almost midnight here, and I'm finally getting around to:

Coronavirus Tweets from the Experts, 5/12/2020

 https://twitter.com/Noahpinion/lists/coronavirus 

2/Big outbreak in Latin America

3/How coronavirus can attack the gut.

4/How coronavirus might have come from batty batty bats

5/The virus can live on the outside of your used surgical mask for a week!

6/Fairly esoteric debate among epidemiologists. I'm reminded of what it must have been like for people to watch macroeconomic blog debates in 2011. Except economists are meaner.

7/Some people have claimed that smoking protects against coronavirus, but this paper presents evidence that smoking makes it worse.

8/Andy Slavitt explains why we need to prepare for the second wave NOW.

9/A one-tweet summary of lots and lots of coronavirus papers.

10/Avoid parties.

(But then, you're a Twitter Person, so parties probably avoid you!!)

11/Some signs that the U.S. epidemic is subsiding at a faster rate (note that reopening could reverse this).

But I worry that the lower positive test rate is due to states reporting antibody tests in the totals.

12/How long until Trump decides Moderna is the vaccine to bet the farm on?

13/Deutschland suppressed their coronavirus epidemic. Why can't we suppress ours?

(note: this is a rhetorical question)

14/Don't open economies without #TestAndTrace, folks.

15/Remember, treatment will probably arrive well before a vaccine does.

16/Validation of antibody tests

17/FREE ONLINE COURSE FOR CONTACT TRACERS

18/How is the Control Group doing?

19/An important thread on reopening criteria

20/On the state of contact tracing in the U.S.

#TestAndTrace

 https://unitedstatesofcare.org/covid-19/covid-19-contact-tracing/ 

21/NYC's outbreak is subsiding. The rest of the country as a whole...not so much.

22/The U.S. needs to ramp up vaccine manufacturing capability ahead of time. We don't want to repeat our colossal failures with regards to testing and PPE back in March.

23/Of course Trump is going to try to monkey with the vaccine development process, and of course it's not going to end well.

24/A contact tracing playbook!

#TestAndTrace

25/An expert talk on how to detect and quash outbreaks.

26/Which coronavirus forecasting models have been the most accurate?

27/Oooh, a resource laying out all the candidate COVID-19 treatments and vaccines!

SHINY!!

28/Immunity is real and reinfection probably isn't real. But we don't know how long immunity lasts.

29/Remember, coronavirus spreads most easily in crowded indoor spaces.

30/A thread explaining how, when, and where coronavirus spread through the U.S.

31/Coronavirus forecasts.

32/Another fancy but unproved vaccine technology.

33/And that's all for tonight, folks! More fun tomorrow!
