Sunday Reads: #CovidToePosted: April 26, 2020 | |
Have you heard of the latest sensation striking the nation?
Nah, I didn’t say camel toe …
Seriously, this virus keeps delivering new horrifying symptoms and statistics. We got so desensitized to disastrous news the last three plus years with tRump in office. Covid has increased the monstrosity of the news day with such dire warnings and updates.
Case in point:
#Covidtoes with Purplish Lesions
Can be,for Some, an Early Symptom
Of the Virus

I would make a couple other points:
We already know that there is some thrombotic process with some cases of #COVID19. Perhaps #covidtoes are related to that. This paper found #SARS_CoV2 infected patients had viral inclusions in endothelial cells:https://t.co/oyG08St7fC pic.twitter.com/7Imhixtzuc

“The brain typically shows up as a tangle of black squiggles — ‘ a can of spaghetti’— that provide a map of blood vessels. A clot shows up as a blank spot.” This Doc saw new clots forming in real-time young #coronavirus pt who was otherwise healthy. https://t.co/UE9keAG389

We all know that Trump didn't really care about the testing fiasco because he was perfectly happy to have no testing. Because he didn't want to spook the markets & hurt his reelect. He told us the virus was under control himself! Azar is just a fall guy https://t.co/tLQPvqA2at

This is the 3rd such story I’ve seen out of Detroit alone. When this is all over one of the things I’m afraid we’ll learn is that the black death rates are so high not just because of how sick Covid-19 made us but because of how poorly we’ve been treated by the healthcare system. https://t.co/pn9zLGU8Rz

This is from one of the “open up the country” protests. You think I should wear this to the next Black Lives Matter rally?
I’m sure everything would be fine, right? pic.twitter.com/zCZquYyAfL

The US curve is not flattening folks. We added 35,400 cases so far today, our 2nd highest -yesterday was the highest (38.9k).
The US now makes up 33% of world cases.
We are not out of the woods. We should be in national lockdown- if we had weeks ago we would be in better shape!

If a stadium full of Americans had been bombed and killed, people would understand the urgency of the need to respond to the threat, right?
Well, this is Dodger Stadium in LA on opening day in 2017.
That’s how many people have died in the US from COVID19.
So far. pic.twitter.com/vK7L7XExYU
