3/One reason we started testandtrace.com was to try to help leaders understand what the exit strategy is.

4/Video reviews of papers are so kewl

twitter.com/medmastery/staā€¦

twitter.com/mugecevik/statā€¦
6/More antibody tests coming.

twitter.com/NSERC_CRSNG/stā€¦
7/Oh by the way, this is why #TestAndTrace only needs to trace CLOSE contacts, not casual contacts. You don't need to track down everyone who rode the same bus. This is not measles.

8/Why letting coronavirus spread through our population won't prompt it to mutate into a less deadly form.

twitter.com/CT_Bergstrom/sā€¦
9/Some data suggesting that yes, antibodies do successfully fight off COVID-19. But not definitive yet, so don't get cocky!

twitter.com/EricTopol/statā€¦
10/Remember the IHME model? It just doubled its projected U.S. deaths.

twitter.com/MattHancock/stā€¦
12/As the U.S. epidemic has shifted from NY to places that don't report on weekends, day-of-the-week effects have become more pronounced. Use weekly cases & deaths to avoid these predictable rises and falls.

15/More on coronavirus biology

twitter.com/statesdj/statuā€¦
16/Once more for those in the back: Contact tracing is mostly about humans calling other humans up, NOT about scary-scary privacy-invading surveillance apps. In fact, those apps might not even be useful.

twitter.com/DrTomFrieden/sā€¦
17/Experts agree, #TestAndTrace is the way to reopen our economy.

twitter.com/cosnet_bifi/stā€¦

twitter.com/ScottGottliebMā€¦
26/Once again: Lockdown + #TestAndTrace is much much much much better than "herd immunity". And it works.

twitter.com/tomaspueyo/staā€¦
27/It's not a question of "the economy or people's lives".

If the virus is unleashed, people are not going to go out and shop.

twitter.com/firefoxx66/staā€¦

twitter.com/marcelsalathe/ā€¦
