When lockdown sceptics tell me of cancelled operations as result of lockdowns I want to shout that lockdown is the only thing that has kept the NHS functioning, even at a reduced level, for so long.— Kit Yates (@Kit_Yates_Maths) January 16, 2021
No one wants lock downs, but the alternative is almost too grim to think about.

“The government’s ultimate strategy on the coronavirus is obscure. ...
The government must urgently set out a plausible and comprehensive strategy to bring cases down and keep them there.”@IndependentSage @Sir_David_King pic.twitter.com/xIcNt4PDkT
Explaining to a friend that domination and latex are not what you think in mathematics.— Anthony Bonato (@Anthony_Bonato) January 15, 2021
I'm very excited to announce that this summer Siddhi Krishna (@5iddhi) and I will be running a *virtual* REU through the School of Math at Georgia Tech: https://t.co/CWxf27zI2A— Dr. Marissa Kawehi (@MarissaKawehi) January 18, 2021

Tell your students that, when solving a math problem, being stuck and not knowing what to do is the normal state of affairs *for you as well*. And that a good problem is one that gets you stuck, sometimes for years or even several lifetimes.— Andrej Bauer (@andrejbauer) January 17, 2021
Since they couldn't even be bothered to give this fellowship a name, I think the AMS should take the further step of renaming all the awards/fellowships that are given in overwhelming numbers to white and/or male mathematicians in the same way. https://t.co/IGTWEYwNhl— Dr. Marissa Kawehi (@MarissaKawehi) January 16, 2021
Don’t let the new test-before departure scheme fool you into thinking the UK borders are now secure.— Kit Yates (@Kit_Yates_Maths) January 17, 2021
Unsupervised quarantine is effectively unenforceable.
Here are some @IndependentSage suggestions to secure the UK against the threat of new variants.https://t.co/Vyubv4ab1M pic.twitter.com/En9wwaCMYq

Every time I hear how much has been spent in test and trace I think, “why not just spend a small amount of that on providing adequate and accessible support to isolate”.— Kit Yates (@Kit_Yates_Maths) January 19, 2021
This would make such a difference. https://t.co/x8iBKmftVq
I know a lot of angry people with 8 numbers in their username will tell you lockdowns have absolutely no effect, but it still seems a pretty massive coincidence that the only three times cases have gone down all started soon after we did it. pic.twitter.com/SxJvh8mTIT— Oliver Johnson (@BristOliver) January 16, 2021
when I was born I didn’t know Rolle’s theorem — now I’ve forgotten the statement. Thus there must have been a time when my knowledge of Rolle’s theorem was neither increasing nor decreasing— Daniel Litt (@littmath) January 15, 2021
"Why bring this to the attention of the math community?... Perhaps it is because I am also part of a racist system.— Dr. Noelle, mathemagician (@blkmathmagic) January 15, 2021
And trying to abide by the system didn’t protect me. And being a good colleague doesn’t protect me." 🔥🔥🔥 @pwr2dpplhttps://t.co/KarnsossJF

And despite this, people’s compliance is still remarkably high. Non compliance is often because people *can’t* comply with the rules, not because they *won’t *.#SupportToIsolate https://t.co/Ejkl2AgdMQ— Kit Yates (@Kit_Yates_Maths) January 13, 2021
There are a lot of people who predicted there wouldn’t be a second wave suddenly turning tail and saying it was all under the guise of debate and healthy skepticism.— Kit Yates (@Kit_Yates_Maths) January 12, 2021
This is horse-shit, and the worst thing is that their denialism has made the second wave significantly worse.
I spoke to a high school senior last night who is interested in mathematics but feels isolated as the only female in her advanced math courses.— Ranthony A.C. Edmonds, PhD (@RanthonyEdmonds) January 12, 2021
What communities exist for women and minoritized persons in STEM at the K-12 level?

Billions of pounds have been spent on setting up a the test and trace system, yet only a fraction of that amount has been devoted to fixing the leakiest part of the pipeline.— Kit Yates (@Kit_Yates_Maths) January 17, 2021
Adequate support to isolate would make an enormous difference to keeping on top of covid spread. https://t.co/bOOm4tlMdu
