Paul continues to push Fauci — who pushes back hard on how Paul describes situation in New York. FAUCI: You misconstrued that senator, and you’ve done that repetitively in the past.… you are not listening to what the director of the CDC said. https://t.co/E2wAivWnp0

Johnson & Johnson launches a 60,000-person Phase 3 clinical trial of their #covid19 vaccine, which may work with just one shot. Here's my story for @nytimes https://t.co/8NAf0v8KrR

A double-or-nothing strategy for dealing with Covid-19 : shift money away from local health departments + essential supplies, to fund huge contracts with potential vaccine manufacturers https://t.co/BIeDP1TPOu

Quoted @CT_Bergstrom

1. Three weeks ago, everyone was bashing the University of Illinois for having the audacity to run an in-person semester at a large state school by developing an in-house testing program test to screen 10,000 students per day.

The University of Illinois story is not over https://t.co/RbdUltAldx

Hey! Want to think about something not the election for an hour? Join me and @carlzimmer talking Money for Nothing at the @MITMuseum (co-sponsored by @MIT_SHASS) Thursday (day after tomorrow!) 7:30-8:30 Details: https://t.co/NRaqrapj9Z (Also, twitter friends. Spread the word?)

Quoted @atrupar

.@acosta: What do you say to Americans who blame this administration for 200,000 Covid deaths? McENANY: The fact that we have come nowhere near 2 million deaths is a testament to this president taking immediate action https://t.co/Y5rHBLanG6

Again: The 2 million figure was the projection of doing *absolutely nothing*. "We did better than absolutely inaction" is not much of a defense, particularly with cases still rising. https://t.co/XKLdZ9HtME

ICYMI, I wrote about how childhood vaccines for #covid19 will take longer—maybe much longer—than ones for the rest of us. https://t.co/oQQ786TQ4I

A few years late to this but She Has Her Mother's Laugh by @carlzimmer is astounding. My mind was blown on every page. It fundamentally shifts how you perceive genetics. Like @DrSidMukherjee's Emperor of All Maladies, it's a philosophical exploration as much as a scientific one.

"It affects virtually nobody," Trump says of the coronavirus, which has now killed 200,000 Americans and counting https://t.co/qHrZvUWNhX

We are on the cusp of exploring one of the best places in our solar system to look for life beyond Earth. That place is Jupiter’s moon Europa. If you need a little inspiration for your imagination, download our new poster and wallpapers: https://t.co/dJjJOSidZH https://t.co/K7kXU98O8o

Update—statement from NIAID: "NIAID first learned of this matter this morning, and Mr. Crews has informed us of his intention to retire. We have no further comments on this as it is a personnel matter." https://t.co/OfXYEn50TS

Over the last 6 months, we've learned a lot about how SARS-CoV-2 spreads🦠 What does the evidence so far tell us about SARS-CoV-2 transmission dynamics, high-risk activities and environments? Thread 🧵 (1/n) https://t.co/zBRmgztnKf

Duke opted for mass testing. Nearby UNC & NC State didn’t. [Standard caveats: Correlation not causation, etc. etc.] https://t.co/kfpmBRXwGu

We’re all waiting on pins and needles for the vaccine that can allow us to get back to normal. But what about our kids? Well, it turns out that vaccine will be an even longer wait. ⁦@NYTParenting⁩ ⁦@carlzimmerhttps://t.co/1HU7Xoc2Up
