Read A thread by Marc Lipsitch (Twitter)

Tonight #DeborahBirx stated that models anticipating large-scale transmission of COVID-19 do not match reality on the ground. Our modeling (done by
@StephenKissler
based on work with
@ctedijanto
and
@yhgrad
and me) is one of the models she is talking about.

A must-read Twitter thread from Marc Lipsitch, Director of Harvard’s Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics. He (politely) demolishes Dr. Birx’s “rosy scenario,” and also points out “we remain woefully behind on testing capacity” and “test reagents, swabs, PPE remain in short supply.”
