Cases and hospitalizations are rising across the US And I’m getting asked repeatedly whether we're heading toward lockdowns Short answer – no – not if we are smart Long answer? Its complicated So let’s talk about lockdowns – and how we get through next few months Thread

A lot of confusion about whether a negative test tonight for President would mean he doesn't need to quarantine It would not mean that at all. Remember incubation period which CDC says is 2-14 days Typically, its 3-5 days Quick thread

My mentions, emails full of people angry I'm not blaming president for his infection In medicine & public health, you dont blame patients when they're sick You look for systemic failures He's ill. I want him better Let's focus on protecting the American people moving forward

Was at dinner (outside) with kids last pm Youngest says "You're so boring on TV. You say same things over and over again" Then mockingly Wear a mask Keep distance Avoid indoor dining and bars Testing testing testing "Why do they even ask you to come back? So boring" Fair

Every day, I stare at this wastewater data from Massachusetts and get more and more concerned This is not about testing or cases This is about how much infection there is in the community In March, we could be excused for being blindsided What's our excuse for inaction now?
