1/Step right up ladies and gentlemen and folks of various other genders, it's time for:

Coronavirus Tweets From the Experts, 5/13/2020!!! 

2/Coronavirus has probably already killed more Americans than World War 1

(not counting civilian Spanish Flu deaths in the WW1 death toll)

3/Another public health expert explains why #TestAndTrace is so important.

4/Only 14 states have met the criteria for reopening. Many are reopening anyway. These shall be the Control Group.

5/Vaccine nationalism?

6/Remember, not all coronavirus tests are created equal! Some suck.

7/More on why "herd immunity" is a very bad strategy.

8/In his Covid Chronicles thread, Bob Wachter discusses masks.

9/Plenty of good data about masks in this thread.

10/Man has a point.


11/The U.S. epidemic is declining a bit faster, but reopening could throw a wrench in that. We'll see!

12/A way that coronavirus can kill kids.

13/Yet more data shows that coronavirus' true death rate (IFR) is about 1%


15/Thing that nobody is actually proposing: Lockdown until vaccine

Thing that will probably happen: Reopening followed by re-lockdown when new waves happen, until vaccine

16/Oh nooooooooooooooooooooooo

17/Remember, it's not a choice between lives and the economy. Effective lockdowns in the short run help the economy in the long run.

18/The U.S. pandemic response has been uniquely bad among developed nations, though we may finally have turned a corner.

19/The coronavirus death rate looks a little lower in Indiana than elsewhere.

20/Once again, "going for herd immunity" is a terrible, terrible strategy.

21/Great to see Mike Bloomberg pushing contact tracing so hard. This is important, high-impact stuff.

22/A possible target for coronavirus treatments

23/What is coronavirus' real incubation period?

24/Yet another massive antibody study shows coronavirus death rate in the neighborhood of 1%.

25/And that's all for tonight, folks! More craaaaazy times tomorrow, with...Coronavirus Tweets From the Experts!
