This post is for information hogs. If you’ve had enough already about the virus, you’re not like me :-) and you won’t want this post, so move along. :-) Still with us? Good.
Yale cardiologist and friend Harlan Krumholz @HMKYale has been live-tweeting notes from a webinar Wednesday morning (US time) from Wuhan, China. Most of us won’t know all the lingo but you can google; most of us will recognize most of what’s going on. (If you’re not a regular on Twitter, just be aware that you can ignore most of what shows up in blue.)
First I’ll paste in a tweet from the end that summarizes a lot of information, particularly the image (click to view):
Deepest gratitude expressed by @hmkyale on behalf of everyone learning from our Chinese colleagues. This was amazing. Thank you @ACCinTouch also for doing this for us. #gratitude and ❤️ from all of us! #WeAreAllInThisTogether #gratitude #COVID19 https://t.co/fWt50mvTdq— Dr. Martha Gulati (@DrMarthaGulati) March 18, 2020
Here’s a capture of Dr. Krumholz’s tweets using the wonderful ThreadReaderApp. At bottom I’ll paste in some additional tweets he spotlighted near the end.
Here are tweets by others that Harlan spotlighted (retweeted) after his own comments ended.

#COVID19 not just a respiratory issue, many patients have cardiac complications. Per @hmkyale as cardiologists, We all need to be aware of cardiac involvement! @ACCinTouch @American_Heart @CardioSmart @MendedHearts @WomenHeartOrg @OhioStateHeart @nationallipid @MinnowWalsh https://t.co/tHJHjtDj8A— Laxmi Mehta (@DrLaxmiMehta) March 18, 2020
p.s. I think ThreadReaderApp is the most useful addition to Twitter in years. I want them to stick around and keep enhancing so I’m a paid subscriber. If you love it, you should be too. Twitter would be a lot harder to “milk” like this without ThreadReaderApp.
