We covered ALL #COVID19 because this country is an epidemiologist's nightmare. Please see the thread.
The study *by the airline* industry did not test all 1.2BIL people.
Denominators matter. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-airlines-risks/bad-math-airlines-covid-safety-analysis-challenged-by-expert-idUSKBN27411C
A campaign by coronavirus-stricken aviation giants to persuade the world it's safe to fly has been questioned by one of the scientists whose research it draws upon.https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-airlines-risks/bad-math-airlines-covid-safety-analysis-challenged-by-expert-idUSKBN27411C
This CAN be minimized by wearing a mask at all times, distancing, etc.
It is NOT risk free. https://www.theday.com/article/20200920/NWS13/200929966
In the spring, we had just 6-12 states with 1000+ new positive cases; on 10/15, we had 25 states hit that threshold.
This is not just "more testing"-more testing should = less cases.
It's a failure of us to act appropriately.
EVEN IF YOU'RE OUTSIDE- #WearAMask .
The #RoseGardenMassacre happened *outside*-but NO one was wearing a mask!
If you're anywhere near someone not in your household, #WearADamnMask!

There is no such thing as a "socially distanced" event: SARS-CoV-2 doesn't care if you're 6ft away from the unmasked person.
Your ventilation is not better than the presidential debate that infected dozens. https://twitter.com/trishgreenhalgh/status/1300086990709362693?s=20
Our laxity with this has allowed this surge to happen.
Countries w/strict policies now have more freedom than we do.
Not 7 days. Not 10 days.
It's not based on how you feel.
If you were exposed-you quarantine. This is because of false negative rates.
*This stops the chain of transmission.*
Exhibit A: the Trump Administration. https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/trump-s-covid-plagued-white-house-proves-testing-alone-can-ncna1242448
Just like a pregnancy test cannot take the place of birth control, Covid-19 tests should not be seen as substitutes for robust public health strategies to reduce community transmission.https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/trump-s-covid-plagued-white-house-proves-testing-alone-can-ncna1242448
If you must be indoors, a mask must be worn BY EVERYONE, ALL OF THE TIME.
If we ALL do this, we can significantly reduce the potential for spread. https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/mm6919e6.htm
Coaches, teachers, parents, ADULTS: set a better example for our kids.
This public health crisis is more impt than a game.
Don't pressure kids to lie or hide symptoms.
We are exhausted. We are tired. We are trolled, name-called, attacked.
But we are still trying to *save lives* & save this country.
Get mad at officials who don't listen to science.
The flu uses the same resources as #COVID.
#SHOTWAVE will save lives.
If you haven't gotten your flu shot, PLEASE get one asap.
I will con't to donate because we need to band together worldwide to help each other. http://charity.gofundme.com/shotwave2020
