Great part of @NYGovCuomo briefings is that after the #COVID19 facts and charts he demarcates the next portion clearly as "Opinion" and ruminates, tells stories, etc. An example for all officials who refuse to separate their opinions from fact. https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/28/politics/andrew-cuomo-polls/index.html
"A Force Outside Myself: Citizens Over 60 Speak" is a project by @mcsweeneys that aims to publish the voices of Americans over 60 as American elders have been marginalized, scapegoated, and written off during this moment of turmoil in history.
Shameful for @WHO official to rudely refuse to answer a journalist's valid question about the agency's work with #Taiwan on #COVID19. As our top global health agency, your first and only loyalty must be to science, not to #Beijing. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-03-29/who-says-it-s-working-with-taiwan-experts-after-video-goes-viral?utm_content=asia&utm_source=twitter&utm_campaign=socialflow-organic&utm_medium=social&cmpid%3D=socialflow-twitter-asia
