This is a pretty striking table. Most other countries were able to reopen schools. But they had also brought down the spread of the virus MUCH more than the U.S. has. ⁦

“Unless Americans use the dwindling weeks between now and the onset of ‘indoor weather’ to tamp down transmission in the country, this winter could be Dickensianly bleak, public health experts warn.” https://t.co/ySe3RrZIhM

My book #Belabored comes out tomorrow and the best/worst part about writing it was hearing everyone's labor stories. I know there are many ways to mother and not all of them involve labor. But If you have them let's hear them! I'll tell you mine. The news sucks today anyway

"We seem to be choosing leisure activities now over children’s safety in a month’s time. And I cannot understand that tradeoff.” This is a sobering read and it's hard but everyone should read it. Winter is literally coming and we're not prepared. https://t.co/tL5TsxBzKS

I think we should go back to being women's libbers. "Women's liberation" sounds way more rad than "feminism."

America Could Control the Pandemic by October. Let’s Get to It. The solutions to combating the coronavirus are no mystery. It’s time to do this right. https://t.co/aCDhvKh9ke

All those Taylor Swift textbook covers by @KhoaVuUmn were amazing and inspiring! Then I looked at my bookshelf and saw... journals. So I thought I’d give it a try! https://t.co/jS7g3xhBhO

I was taking care of a patient the other day who was very seriously injured. And I stepped out to talk to his family briefly and give them an update. For context, he was Black. I told them what was going on quickly and asked if they had any questions. And this is what they said.

I’m really grateful to everyone who read the big new cover story this week. If you’ve liked my work, perhaps you’ll also like the work that I like. Here are some great pandemic-related pieces from the last month, from writers whose work I respect.

I struck a nerve w/my tweet on moms worrying about the fall. I know some dads are worried too. But I'm thankful for researchers like @BetseyStevenson & reporters like @clairecm showing it's not in my head--women bear pandemic caregiving disproportionately. https://t.co/7KEU2xgJnM

An excellent point. And one I spoke with Elizabeth Warren about in tonight’s newsletter w/@jennymedina https://t.co/6Z5j7Y03xF https://t.co/MhfYjNzE7y

RELEASED TODAY: New report from @BetterLifeLab - nationally representative survey finds broad, bipartisan support for care and caregivers and the policies that support them - https://t.co/EtorbLhaX0

Forcing these choices on individuals ends up decreasing support for policies that might help and empathy for people with less, research shows. I wrote this before the pandemic, but it very much applies to the situation parents find themselves in right now: https://t.co/SReP4gkvOK

It's just that most options parents relied on aren't available now. It comes down to this: Young kids need child care & help with remote school, and can't be in big groups. So they require an adult at home, paid or unpaid. For many families, that's asking the impossible.

When schools closed, no structural supports arose in their place to help parents. That leaves it to each individual family to figure out a solution in an impossible situation. This isn't new. The United States has always left it to individual parents to figure it out.

What parents are doing with their kids this school year has become contentious. But it's worth keeping in mind that for parents of young kids right now, THERE ARE NO GOOD CHOICES. Everyone has been left to figure it out for themselves (& made to feel guilty for whatever they do)

“This is not feasible. Thus, we really need to shift the conversation from “perfectly safe” and “only if there is vaccine” to “how can we do this as safely as possible?” and “what resources do we need in order to achieve this common goal?”” /7 https://t.co/i4NIiv8QWY

Quoted @SarahCohodes

If we are waiting for a vaccine, we are not just waiting for the science We are waiting for the manufacturing, the distribution, the implementation, the adherence... I’m optimistic about the science I’m not optimistic about the rest https://t.co/OjYuynTFR8

A lot of sobering pieces, some new, some a few weeks old, coming together in my mind this morning We are in this for the long haul I’ll link them below 1/ https://t.co/iOo4vyTHDL

A survey conducted in June by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that more than 30 percent of adults in the United States were reporting symptoms consistent with anxiety or depression since the coronavirus pandemic began. https://t.co/uuRMQ8aRRR

You've heard the whitewashed story of how America built its great middle class in the postwar era. It's time to learn the real story. The first adapted essay from my book, The Riches of This Land, is live @nytimes: https://t.co/shVjXw9m80 Pre-order at https://t.co/32xExh5DwD
