After living through and reporting on COVID-19’s siege of New York and New Jersey, I held out hope that other regions of the country wouldn’t have to face the same horrors. But what's going on now in Houston looks disturbingly similar. Some observations 👇 1/

What is the business of a COVID-19 vaccine? Who will be developing it, where does the money come from, and how does the business of vaccine development affect when and how we will see a vaccine that could end this pandemic? @katie_thomas breaks it down: https://t.co/b7UCqe9z5g

Here's something a little different from me: A young researcher had been racing since January to find a coronavirus treatment. Then the virus hit home when her mother, a nurse's assistant, was assigned to a Covid-19 ward. https://t.co/dhRSB40WWK

Novavax just got $1.6 billion from the federal government to develop its coronavirus vaccine -- the biggest deal yet -- even though it has never brought a product to market. https://t.co/y7FogF1MKp

This morning, we're releasing a look at all the clinical trials against #COVID19. One big conclusion: we've spent a lot of resources on #Hydroxychloroquine, probably too much.

Is the coronavirus airborne? YES, according to 239 experts from 32 countries. But if so, why does @WHO still maintain that transmission by aerosols only happens after certain medical procedures? 1/x https://t.co/AJep0wqEzh

A decade ago, two boys captivated me with their reflections on their dad’s deployment to Afghanistan. Then @leslyedavis and I got to do something rare but essential in journalism: Go back, again and again. @nytimes @NetflixFilm out July 17. For now, this https://t.co/CezT3wcsCi

Internal messages reveal what's really going on inside Houston's hospitals. Running out of beds, drugs and staff: https://t.co/enIgtHuz95 w/ @Mike_Hixenbaugh @NBCNews

“What worries me is not this week, where we’re still kind of handling it,” said Roberta Schwartz, Houston Methodist’s chief innovation officer, who’s been helping lead the system’s efforts to expand beds for COVID-19 patents. “I’m really worried about next week.” https://t.co/omjg7Xa5Pn

Have you gotten confusing or conflicting information from a health professional about coronavirus transmission or symptoms lately? Please DM me—I’m interested in where the biggest sources of ambiguity are so the best information can get out! This would be for an @nytimes story.

Two friends went to the same Texas emergency room for drive-through coronavirus tests. One was billed $199. The other was billed $6,408. Turns out, the price of a coronavirus test can vary by thousands of dollars in the same ER. My latest: https://t.co/Zt98CzlSoL

The National Institutes of Health has a much bigger stake in Moderna's coronavirus vaccine than previously known. Huge implications for pricing and distribution. https://t.co/3wGQqwlyF9

Quest Diagnostics - one of the country's medical labs — has been turning tests around in a couple days.

Due to increased demand, they soon expect results to start taking longer than 3 days. (1/2) https://t.co/9bYAdZAYiG

I thought I knew the Insys story, having reported on it from the beginning, but this @frontlinepbs documentary still managed to take my breath away in places. Thanks for including me. With @RodBoydILM @gilliantett and others... https://t.co/DLXzaIwqde
