1.[EVENT 201]

Une #Pandémie de #Coronavirus simulée 2 mois et demi avant le #COVID19 :

L'objectif était de se préparer à l’exercice dont parle l’OMS dans son Global Preparedness Monitoring Board de 2019.

2. Le 18 octobre 2019, au Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security à New York, s’est tenue une réunion en public, organisée en partenariat entre le centre John Hopkins, la fondation Bill et Melinda Gates et le Forum Économique Mondial, qui avait pour nom : #Event201. Image
3. Le #coronavirus fictif au cœur de la simulation avait pour nom CAPS, avec pour origine des porcs brésiliens qui contamineraient des agriculteurs locaux, avant de se propager progressivement dans le monde entier.

🛑 1/7 Spróbuję napisać najprościej jak potrafię.#Covid19 jest i nie ma co z tym dyskutować. Niedługo mamy z tą chorobą do czynienia z punku widzenia czasu,jaki jest wśród nas.Przebieg zachorowania bywa różny. Choroba moze mieć przebieg piorunujący, ostry, podostry, przewlekły.
2/7 Następstwa zachorowania jak i ich forma u różnych osób może być różny. U jednych może być „#bezobjawowy”, co nie znaczy, że w tym czasie nie dochodzi do zmian w tkankach czy narządach. Nie wiemy też, czy w tym okresie „bezobjawowym” nie dojdzie nagle do etapu...
3/7 „piorunującego”, czy przejdzie on w okres przewlekły, czyniąc z chorego w późniejszym czasie „inwalidę” chorego na płuca czy serce czy np nerki. Wszystkim się wydaje, że przy obecnym stanie wiedzy medycznej powinnismy od razu wiedzieć czy przewidywać, jakie...

Hmm. "22nd January" seems remarkably early, especially if one calibrates against what we now know happened that day.

Here's the minutes of the "precautionary #SAGE" meeting on 22/1/20:…

"DHSC and PHE also preparing plans... for the follow up of contacts" Image
...and the @WHO meeting held on 22-23 January decided *against* declaring #2019nCoV a 'Public Health Emergency of International Concern':…

(The #PHEIC wasn't declared until 30 Jan.)

So why were @PHE_uk officials calling @SercoGroup about #CallCentres?
We know #Serco's initial £45.75m #CallCentre contract was awarded (by @DWP) on 20 March:… but there's no mention of them attending Dominic Cummings' #BigTech meeting at Number 10 earlier that month:…

Were things all sewn up by then?

Chlorhexidine (CHX) is very much effective against #SARS_CoV_2. The earlier notion that CHX may not work on the 'novel coronavirus' is outdated. Old studies had used very low conc. New evidence shows CHX effective against #2019ncov at 0.05% conc. #COVID19…
Study shows a single rinse with Chlorhexidine (CHX) mouthwash reduces SARS-COV-2 viral load in saliva for 2 hrs. Suggests CHX rinse to prevent #Covid19 spread via droplets.
Rinse 10 ml of 0.20% CHX for 30 sec

Hat einer der Kollegen in #Sachsen @PrinterPapst @twOBSERVE @Micha_DD @RPFDMOPO beim @sms_sachsen schon gefragt, warum in anderen Ländern die Gesundheitsämter (nach Anordnung durch jeweiliges Gesundheitsministerium) z.B. bei Bundesligaspielen auf #Corona reagieren, Sachsen nicht?
Man fragt man sich schon, warum die Behörden in #Sachsen aktuell in #Leipzig vor +40.000 Menschen kicken lassen und anderswo reagiert wurde/wird. cc @MDR_SN @dnn_online @Radioleipzig @saechsischeDE @dd_twintweet @LVZ @DieRotenBullen #Corona #coronavirus #2019nCoV #COVID19
Oder drückt man sich vor einer Entscheidung und spricht nur Empfehlungen aus? Mein Gott, sagt doch: wir können es verlangsamen, wenn wir uns alle für einige Monate ein bisschen einschränken. Und das gilt bitte schön für alles, was nicht unbedingt notwendig ist.

Over 60 million Italian citizens under lockdown as #Coronavirus incidences surge. Over 9000 confirmed cases in Italy & rising.

The unfortunate consequence are the associated ethical concerns regarding resource allocation.

More Below

#COVID19 #nCoV2019 #2019nCoV

Incessant rising in cases warrants the question: are hospitals prepared for the associated influx of patients?

Further admissions require beds, PPE, ventilators, staff etc. What happens when resources run out, ventilators are all in use, or there aren’t enough staff?

Ultimately, scarcity of medical resources may pressure healthcare practitioners to decide who receives care. This is NOT a question anyone should ever have to answer.

Resources should never be the limiting factor of care

For Public Attention: Do not hoard masks/sanitisers. These are to be used rationally and more so by the frontline health workers. DO NOT PANIC! We need to collectively step up our hygiene and microbiological barrier as a society. Do not fall for quacks. #COVID2019.
Drink as much as warm sterile fluids in order to keep yourself well hydrated. Follow cough etiquettes, especially in public places. Report to a Physician without delay in case of fever, sore throat, running, diarrhoea, dry/productive cough.
An infection with #2019nCoV does not mean a ‘death warrant’, however extremes of age and those with associated co-morbid conditions like Diabetes, Renal Diseases and HIV/AIDS constitute the ‘risk group’. We are to understand the challenge in order to brave it.

Quick thread on the heels of my piece with @sciencecohen pointing out some of the challenges in diagnosing #COVID19 #2019nCov…
@sciencecohen @juliaoftoronto Yes, not like we don’t have enough misinformation to contend with already. Don’t really need journals like @NEJM getting in on that particular game. Unnecessarily stubborn. Seems clear to me that given this information they would never have accepted title etc.
@sciencecohen 1. The challenges are very different depending on where you look. Africa is ramping up testing of #2019nCoV #SARSCoV2 now. It’s really about lab capacity there. African CDC has organized a first training in Dakar, kits have been shipped from Germany.

@DavidQuammen @HelenBranswell The WHO just named the disease and their guidelines don’t allow them to use place names for several reasons incl stigmatization. Wrote about the rules here:…
@DavidQuammen @HelenBranswell Virus was named by International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses:…
@DavidQuammen @HelenBranswell But I think it’s not ideal and certainly the way this was announced today created some confusion. #COVID19 #sarscov2 #2019nCoV

Pulled down my earlier tweet about #2019nCoV's permanent name. It had a dash - I didn't include it.
The name is Covid-19.
Apologies for the error.
(That dash is going to mess up the hashtag)
Clarifying: Covid-19 (or COVID-19? Not sure) is the name of the disease. #2019nCoV

.@DrTedros uses beginning of daily presser to remind people that @WHO is also still fighting an #Ebola epidemic in DRC. "Although the world is now focussed on coronavirus, we cannot and must not forget Ebola."
@DrTedros @WHO Only 3 cases in last week. "But until we have no cases for 42 days, it is not over.” Ebola emergency committee is meeting again tomorrow to decide whether the outbreak still is a #PHEIC.
@DrTedros @WHO .@DrTedros explains that the name needed to avoid referencing a location, animal, individual or group of people. Also needed to be pronouncable. So: #COVID19

Daily media briefing on #2019nCoV with @DrTedros…
@DrTedros "Although the world is now focused on #2019nCoV, we cannot and must not forget #Ebola in #DRC.

We are very encouraged by the current trend. There have only been 3 cases in the past week, and no cases in the past 3 days"-@DrTedros
@DrTedros "But until we have no #Ebola cases for 42 days, it's not over. Any single case could re-ignite the epidemic, and the security situation in eastern #DRC remains extremely fragile"-@DrTedros

Un peu d'optimisme pour traiter le #coronavirus :

Une analyse in vitro a constaté que le remdesivir et la chloroquine sur des cellules (Vero E6) infectées par le #2019nCoV (coloré en vert) sont efficaces à faibles doses comme agents antiviraux… Image
Cellules Vero = cellules épithéliales de rein extraites d'un singe vert africain

Le remdesivir est un analogue de l’adénosine qui s’intègre aux chaînes d’ARN viral et il agit comme agent terminal de chaîne et arrêtent l’action de la polymérase virale
La chloroquine fait augmenter le pH des endosomes et empêche la fusion virus/cellule). Ces 2 antiviraux ont bloqué l’infection virale à de faible concentration (concentration efficace mi-maximale (CE 50 = 0,77 μM et 1,13 μM respectivement) Image

#最新擴疫邏輯題#林鄭月娥 見記者,逐句閱讀理解練習】

1. 「行政長官林鄭月娥指,要求 #封關 的說法已經無太大意思」

-> 林鄭月娥承認,要求封關的說法在香港疫情現在大爆發前,是很有意思的,只是被她拒絕,今天就沒有意思了
2. 「指自2月8日起,從內地入境檢疫措施,已經大大減低入境人士數目,將跨境的人數減至最低

-> 跨境人數不可以是零,所謂「減至最低」,其實每天依然有近千內地人入境(最新數字),但已經「最低」,暗示唔好再逼我
3. 「過去三日從陸路口岸入境的內地居民,每日只有數十人」

-> 但是非陸路口岸入境的內地居民從來是大戶,「強制檢疫」生效後,機場入境的內地人日期每天分別依然有943人、913人,卻不算進「強制檢疫」定義之內,唔好提
