WH Coronavirus TF:
1. Still clinging to discredited idea increase due to testing.
2. No coherent overview for an imminent public health crisis in our Southern metro areas
3. No concrete federal plan for helping metro areas.
4. No predictive models
3. Disconnected facts/factoids

As disorganized and uninformative as ever. If one of my first year graduate students gave that presentation, we would have a discussion.

Stop saying “hotspots” the metro areas in the American Southwest are facing public health calamity

They’ve weeks of resurgence data, and CDC just deployed now to help state analyze it and understand what’s happening? So confusing.

So far: No anticipation, no ideas, and no plan for the region. No plan for the nation, or at least they cannot articulate one.

Standing by on @CNN to provide some commentary.
