As LA County gets ready to implement a new Safer at Home order, let me remind you that #COVID19 case counts are at their highest levels yet. Hospitalizations are soaring. Officials warn we could see as many as 1,000 new admissions a day as early as next week.

Two months ago, it was projected that one in every 880 L.A. County residents were infected with COVID-19. Now, it’s estimated it's one in every 145.

We have to act now to slow the spread.

Please stay home as much as possible.

Quoted @washingtonpost

Doctors and nurses want more data before championing vaccines to end the pandemic

Successful #COVID19 vaccine rollout will need to build trust + confidence in communities across the country + leverage public health allies -starting with healthcare workers.

There is no time to lose.

@PostRowland article highlights this point + cites our @medrxivpreprint.

Excited to speak with @arimoin (Dr. Anne Rimoin) one of the foremost epidemiologists in the country. We will be talking Covid spike, how to stay safe over the coming months and what to expect from these new vaccines. Tomorrow (Friday Nov 20) on my Instagram Live.

Looking forward to chatting with @kumailn today and answering questions about #COVID19 on his #IGLive at 130PM PT/ 430PM ET!

Today was a very, very odd day

I testified before @senatehomeland

They held a hearing on hydroxychloroquine.

Yup, HCQ

In the middle of the worst surge of pandemic

HCQ

It was clear how our information architecture shapes questions of science and medicine of COVID

Interesting caveat: this survey was done between Sept 24 & Oct 16… before the election & #Pfizer + #Moderna announcements. Planning our follow up surveys now!

Successful COVID vaccine rollout will need to build trust + confidence in communities across the country + leverage public health allies + MUST start w/HCWs. Forthcoming vaccination campaigns must address these unique points of vax hesitancy in order to achieve adequate coverage.

See #preprint “Assessment of COVID-19 vaccine acceptance among healthcare workers in Los Angeles”.

HCW will be early vaccine recipients + administering to general pop . As lynchpins of vax efforts, HCW opinions of vaccine safety + efficacy may affect public perception + uptake.

Will healthcare workers be willing to get a #COVID19 #vaccine? We surveyed 600+ #HCWs in LA: 66.5% stated intent to delay/refuse #SARSCoV2 vaccine. Evolving #science, current political climate + fast-tracked development timeline cited as key factors.

Quoted @MSF_USA

DR Congo's 11th Ebola outbreak was declared over today.

Lessons learned from past outbreaks, a community-focused approach, and newly-licensed vaccine were critical to contain this outbreak.

We spoke to MSF's lead on Ebola activities about our response:

On the #Ebola front, some much needed good news. #DRCongo ’s 11th Ebola outbreak was declared over today. Much deserved congratulations and thanks to my friends and colleagues at the @inrb_kinshasa for their tireless work under difficult conditions.

Must-read from @daijmoore about young people’s circumstances, from young people themselves, with valuable insight from Drs.
@JenniferNuzzo, @ARimoin, and @JuliaLMarcus on how empathy works far better than fear and shaming. This is so important for all policymakers to understand.
