What's that in US units? 1 bar in Texas? https://twitter.com/motokorich/status/1276714143068721152
Texas' Gov. Abbott regrets reopening: "If I could go back and redo anything, it probably would have been to slow down the opening of bars, now seeing in the aftermath of how quickly the coronavirus spread in the bar setting." https://twitter.com/NBCNews/status/1276546085956333568
In the ongoing disaster that is the American corona response, this is point where Dr. Oshitani Hitoshi stares directly at the camera and says something rude about occidentals and their cultural habits.
Shaming ppl for going to beaches/parks when almost all superspreading transmission events have been indoors (crowded, loud) has been awful.

Can't blame ppl when policy has closed beaches but reopened bars. Public shaming has focused on wrong risks.
Just 100s of such superspreader events would have taken place in past month after states inexplicably reopened bars w/out informing people of risks of 3C's. This from Jacksonville that is now the second largest outbreak in Florida after Miami. https://twitter.com/zeynep/status/1273018142076407808
On June 20, day after bars were allowed to reopen in Los Angeles county, some 500,000 ppl got drinks, according to Dept of Public Health. Even if 5000 were infectious; crowded +loud+ indoor + maskless = 1000s of new infections. A colossal policy failure. https://laist.com/latest/post/20200627/a-lot-of-people-in-LA-went-out-to-bars-the-day-after-they-reopened
The super-spreader event in a S Korean megachurch that looked like this was one single person — Patient 31 — who infected over 5000 people. Maskless shouting/singing in closed spaces is dangerous https://graphics.reuters.com/CHINA-HEALTH-SOUTHKOREA-CLUSTERS/0100B5G33SB/index.html
This is First Baptist Dallas where Pence spoke today. Texas shut down bars on friday, but churches were kept open though singing aerosalises virus over long distances. Infact, its all the risky 3C's together: Closed, Crowded, Choirs.

Jesus take the wheel.
8 days after bars were reopened in California they are closed. 500,000 ppl went to them the first night. Even if 5000 were infectious; crowded +loud+ indoor + maskless = 1000s of new infections. Reversal of a horrible policy failure https://laist.com/latest/post/20200627/a-lot-of-people-in-LA-went-out-to-bars-the-day-after-they-reopened https://twitter.com/GavinNewsom/status/1277320192188575747
tfw a serious country Australia orders 300,000 ppl to stay-at-home in Melbourne for a month after finding clusters coz it tests like there is no tomorrow

Meanwhile, Texas w the same population, has more cases in a day... http://metrics.covid19-analysis.org/ 
A state of emergency? Has Japan tried the proven technique of arguing over masks, bar-hopping and leaving it to god? https://twitter.com/SasakawaUSA/status/1278765653160329216
Oshitani designed Japan's approach to see the forest, not the trees. It means that most ppl infect 0 other ppl, so when when you find one, you've got to look back to find the 3C cluster that started it.
