@SHEA_Epi: In a sign of how complicated it has become to navigate the #COVID19 pandemic, companies are hiring epidemiologists to help guide their efforts to reopen and stay open.
@DrTomFrieden: 1/10 Another week, more spread of #Covid19. Bottom line: it’s worse, will continue to get worse, and will take months to improve substantially.We are going in the wrong direction, fast.

@PeterHotez: Thread 1/6: I agree with Dr. Schuchat that our #COVID19 epidemic in America is spiraling out of control...
@DrTomFrieden: 25/25 #COVID19 is spreading more in the US. More risk, especially for healthcare workers, older Americans, and most adults - most have at least one underlying condition. More travel restrictions (pariah status). Less economic growth. Welcome to non-independence-from-Covid week.
@cynth_ID: I dreamt that I went to a wedding & forgot to wear a mask. I was so embarrassed & ashamed. Will this be the new equivalent of leaving the house wearing two different shoes? I did this in 5th grade & was sent to the principal’s office until my mom brought me new shoes. #NewNormal
