Pandemic Twitter Updates

My employer is in the thick of the pandemic response. We are 200% focused internally, yet don't want to miss cutting edge information. What are the best accounts to follow for concise and timely updates? I want to specifically use Twitter so we can easily pull the updates into a Slack channel.

Another thing that would be helpful / differentiate this ask is to also include how this whole thing is stressing technology supply chains and cloud services.

I think it would be great to keep this Ask up, to help make information more available. And to help reduce extra internet time searching for resources, there is also the MeFi Wiki Disaster Planning & Recovery page, Medical/Pandemic section, which is being regularly updated, especially as resources continue to get posted on Metafilter.
