What is the best way to tailor the health response to in low income countries to meet their needs and constraints? @glassmanamanda @kchalkidou @SullivanProf. A difficult and urgent question. Good to share ideas. cgdev.org/blog/does-one-size-f … twitter.com/MaxCRoser/status/1

New research suggests that because of the lockdown the reproduction number could be below one in the UK

Keep in mind that it is one study only, based on survey data, and not yet reviewed. twitter.com/MaxCRoser/status/1

No testing, no confirmed cases.

Because confirmed cases are those with a lab confirmed infection.

Here is one comparison that shows why it is so very wrong to naively compare cases between countries without understanding how much testing a country does.

Das Verhältnis von Todesfällen zur Anzahl der *Erkrankten* für COVID-19 ist nicht bekannt, aber gegenwärtig sicher niedriger als 3%.

Es ist etwas kompliziert, aber es ist ein großer Unterschied.

Das ist falsch @faznet.
Das Verhältnis von Todesfällen zur Anzahl der *Erkrankten* für COVID-19 ist nicht 3%.
Es ist auch falsch diese Zahl mit den anderen hier zu vergleichen.

Der Titel bezieht sich auf die Infection Fatality Rate, die Zahl auf die Case Fatality Rate. twitter.com/MaxCRoser/status/1

If I had say $500k to $5M to donate as gifts to research on COVID-19 vaccines or cures, or on something that could lead to a vaccine/cure…

What labs could make best use of it right now?

Who has *already* been doing this work, unpaid?

Qualquer argumento de "mas tal condição mata X pessoas por dia/mês/ano e o coronavírus até aqui só matou Y" não entende crescimento exponencial. Esse tipo de ignorância fica exposto em pouco tempo já que o número de mortes infelizmente dobra a cada 6 dias. ourworldindata.org/coronavirus twitter.com/MaxCRoser/status/1

A comparison of the case fatality rate of COVID-19 across four countries.

Part of our discussion of what the available data tells us – and doesn’t tell us – about the mortality risk of COVID-19:

Now is an exciting time because the world's eyes are all on the daily updating data.

But we will *surely* learn soon how bad the current data is.

If we are now not careful with we communicate data we risk that this backfires and people lose trust in the work we care about. twitter.com/MaxCRoser/status/1

Beyond the clear description of our data we should not lightly make strong statements.

I understand that everyone wants to be able to give answers.

But a responsible communication right now requires us to emphasize what we can *not* say based on the current data. twitter.com/MaxCRoser/status/1

I remain worried about how the available data is communicated.

The available data is bad.

I know it doesn't look good. But it means that careful, often lengthy annotations are absolutely required.

If you don't describe your data well you misinform and you'll regret it later. twitter.com/MaxCRoser/status/1
