We cannot win against an epidemic if we cannot get the messaging right. A pandemic is a communication emergency. We need the full truth not the paternalism we got about masks; we need guidance about relative risk not scaremongering about beaches. Alas. https://t.co/rlAM0Da3CZ https://t.co/Y309ZmJ43S

"[W. E. B.] Du Bois’s 1920 book, 'Darkwater: Voices From Within the Veil,' offers us a clarion call to action, to imagine a better tomorrow and continue, even in the face of death, to live, to fight, and to love," @Dr_ChadWilliams writes: https://t.co/NFwHSFmFTH

“The way many think of custodial staff does not reflect the value that they provide to hospitals," @RepMarkTakano told @jasper_craven recently. “They are critical to infection control; we need to see these employees as skilled workers.” https://t.co/xL0KTgW7aT
