We’ve done a lot of Twitter roundups over the years, but now seems like the perfect time to do them regularly with so many people sharing great information, insights, and resources on Twitter. Here’s a quick COVID-19 Twitter roundup of interesting items we saw recently.

This is a sad group of charts and I’m grateful that Farzad pointed these out. The spread of the virus and poverty maps do seem to overlap due to lack of resources.
One of my pulmonologist friends shared a Google Drive where a bunch of docs around the country are sharing #COVID resources and literature. It's an open drive for anyone to share content (no PHI). Check it out and add to it if you have helpful info: https://t.co/pomnB0NBC0

We previously shared a COVID-19 Doctor Slack Channel and a Doctor Mobile app. Well, now you can check out a COVID-19 Google Drive. I’ve often said that humans need to connect and share, so we’re going to find a way to make it happen. Even if it’s something as simple as files on a Google Drive.
Where have all the regular patients gone? Why aren’t we seeing as many strokes and MIs for example? I’m starting to worry people who do need to be at the hospital are too scared to come because of #COVID19.

This scares me too. I’m afraid many that need help are staying home. That’s not the intent of Stay Home as I understand it. Although, I get that many are scared of the risk of COVID-19 exposure if they go in. Hopefully yesterday’s COVID-19 waivers will create new places for people with non-COVID-19 symptoms to go and get the care they need without risking exposure to COVID-19.
If the lockdown continues into May I’ll be forced to do a TikTok video

Yeah. I think we’re all feeling this one a little bit. I guess I should have waited for a Fun Friday, but considering days feel like weeks in this crisis, a little Wednesday humor was in order.
