Above summarizes 330 tweets with focus on numbers (infected dead tested...). Thread#1 contains other viewpoints too. Use above as jump targets.

IF countries make mistakes then the 1st days are worst, due to avalanches of later-cascaded infections.
4474 cases on January 28th = my first screenshot of JohnsHopkins dashboard = tweet#2 of thread#1 = obviously the #NewCoronaVirus was conceived to be a serious problem already. https://twitter.com/drandreaskruger/status/1222178443586080768

"Disaster movies start with scientists being ignored"
Initially the #ExponentialGrowth was 50-54% PER DAY (perhaps also because of the catching up of "known infected" with the "yet uncounted infected"). Tweet#3 in Thread#1 https://twitter.com/drandreaskruger/status/1222180706467680256 . Jan28th.
Some #ExponentialFitFunctions, early phase:
+48%/day infected, China
+35%/day infected elsewhere (but: see previous tweet)
+26%/day recovered
+39%/day deaths
needs: LogLin plot !
prediction: SIR model = not unlimited growth !

Intro: #DoublingDays easier concept than %growth
2.21 DDs = infected China
2.90 DDs = infected elsewhere
2.51 DDs = recovered China
2.60 DDs = deaths China
https://twitter.com/drandreaskruger/status/1223566413274714113 tweet#7 thread#1, Feb1st: more data = better fit; known cases catching up. Still #ExponentialGrowth!
Example 5 phases #epidemics: Curve BEGINS as #ExponentialGrowth then turned to #LinearGrowth by intervention. Then enough people understand: Once R0<1 epidemics can die out. Until re-imported...

N.B.: The "history approach" of thread#1 was interrupted for >ONE week, in order to write a long text about all this. I have possibly missed really important news between April 6th and April 15th.

Sorry for incomplete and delayed ... news. Only some highlights, following.
A trustworthy CoronaApp MUST be OpenSource! https://twitter.com/drandreaskruger/status/1247682098829430785
Herd immunity (without vaccine) = wrong. https://twitter.com/tagesthemen/status/1247632362076135424
Hey you moronic #CoronaDeniers out there: "just like the flu", right? https://twitter.com/MaxCRoser/status/1247884285333266434
Surviving Corona but "crippled for life" can be an outcome. "Don't listen to the maniacs" says survivor @FrauDoktorJulie who describes herself as an "old, frail woman" now, after #Covid19: https://twitter.com/FrauDoktorJulie/status/1247923014630551555
Northermost German #SchleswigHolstein played with fire, discussing EasterParties of 10 people. Nothing might come from it OR additional deaths 20-30 days later. https://twitter.com/drandreaskruger/status/1248343731717144576

Some #EasterDeaths will have been caused likely by simple-minded, mask-less, EasterShoppers...
New & interesting study with N=1010 in a small village "Gangelt" (population 11,634) which was the second Hotspot in Germany - not ski but carneval maniacs ;-)

Much criticism of @hbergprotokoll has been published in past days, one is this early article https://twitter.com/Karl_Lauterbach/status/1248602029783580674
IF their 0.37% mortality was correct (so 1 in 270 population dies) and ALL countries had an equally good health system as Germany, and R0=3, then this " #LowMortality" (which maniac called that low??)...

would cause 19 million deaths minimum IF not stopped https://twitter.com/drandreaskruger/status/1248421408230670336
LateApril / earlyMay #EasterDeaths are not unlikely- due to densely packed supermarkets, with EasterShopping fanatics. AND: Who had been trained by public egoists (politicians experts influencers) to repeat the silly "masks don't protect ME" barbarism.

Some (minor) misuse of German CoronaHelp money. Scammers' phishing site fooled 4000 companies; supermarket billionaire(!) asking for >10^8 Euros support; and CAR companies are TAKING public money but PAYING "profit dividends" to shareholders! #DarkSide đŸ˜± https://twitter.com/drandreaskruger/status/1248544815656157184

Attention #maths: AVERAGES can be an illusion !

Example: in "scaleFree degreeDistribution networks" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Complex_network#Scale-free_networks many observables are NOT Gauss distributed - so there IS NO "center" around which the data clusters.

Look at a real world example: https://twitter.com/tomaspueyo/status/1248661596177485824
micro-droplets, aerosols - #MaskHaters are dangerous - and the LOUDER they speak, the more risky they are https://twitter.com/ilkeryoldas/status/1248795900882944000
Most probable cause of death in US now:
Not heart attack, not cancer - but #Covid19 https://twitter.com/RARohde/status/1247923473273565184

Some #covid19patients have very low #Tcells: Means your immune system itself gets attacked; harder to clear the virus out of your system; and more easily infected by other things. https://twitter.com/CurlyJungleJake/status/1248161735455830016
leading to #ImmunoSuppression ... https://twitter.com/DrEricDing/status/1248890389760802816

Please alert me of cool #LiveStreams in that ^ thread, thx.
The CLEVER way is:

a) R~0.2 --> i.e. HARDEN the lockdown
b) wait a bit until new cases low
c) #TestAndTrace EVERY SINGLE case

But "clever" you only get in ... China?

SILLY reason for irresponsible WASTING: #ClassIdeology
+ consequence of their #ClassIdeology hypercomplicated CoronaHelp scheme:

They WASTED TIME; lost time they can NOT spend on FIGHTING THE VIRUS. Which is thus still going strong.

"A non-trivial outcome of our study is that strong suppression strategies lead to lower total costs than taking no action, when containment efforts are not relaxed with falling infection rates." (page 6)
"Beyond herd immunity point, infected-case counts remain elevated for considerable time. The outbreak stops completely only once 94% of population has been infected ... Fig. 1a. The view that epidemic is essentially over once the herd immunity point is reached is erroneous" (p.6)

Heinsberg study preprint: https://twitter.com/hendrikstreeck/status/1257228751617830913

Careful: IFR=0.36% was extrapolated from only 7 deaths (so they should rather say ~0.4%).

Plus it is a horribly high number:
94% * 7.8 billion * 0.4% #lethality = 29 million deaths

(for the 94% scroll up 20 tweets to April 30)
11 years per #covid19death ...

... is the answer to an -unethical?- question.

"years of life lost (ylls) for the average Briton/Italian who passed away was ~ 11, meaning that FEW of #covid19’s victims would have died soon otherwise"
