The #COVID19 pandemic has stressed health care systems worldwide, requiring rationing of medical equipment and care. The authors discuss the ethical values relevant to health care rationing and provide six recommendations to guide fair allocation of scarce medical resources.
We desperately need better #COVID19 testing—rapid, point-of-care—and not just for diagnosis of infection but also serology for response. Fortunately, there are many efforts underway and here's the summary @NatureBiotech today
Decoding #Covid19 immune response can inform detection methods and vaccine discovery. Giving this data to the community allows us to work together to solve this global public health crisis and @Illumina is proud to be part of this collaboration.

We can start with getting every #healthcare worker tested now. And again if negative. And again.
And demand the right protective gear for all now.
There is simply no excuse.
