1) During the last two provincial leaders’ debates, Premier François Legault asserted Quebec has managed the #pandemic better than the rest of Canada and the United States, pointing to an esoteric concept known as excess mortality. In this thread, I fact-check Legault’s claims.
2) First, though, it should be pointed out that soon after I wrote a Twitter thread comparing Quebec’s seven-day #COVID mortality rate per million population with other countries last January, the public health institute (INSPQ) stopped publishing such charts. Why did it do so? Image
3) The reasons offered then were not because Quebec’s #COVID mortality rate just happened to be the highest of all major international jurisdictions. No, the rationale was that each jurisdiction compiles its COVID deaths differently and therefore such comparisons were unreliable.

2) Not just in US, but after the start of Oktoberfest, #Covid infections in Munich have increased significantly, per 🇩🇪 RKI.

Case numbers rose 77% vs the previous week, compared to 43% in Bavaria & 29% in Germany.

Covid hospitalizations are also up.

💉 Avec quel vaccin, à partir de quand, pour qui... Vous avez l'impression de ne plus rien comprendre à la vaccination de rappel contre le #Covid19 pour cet automne ? On va tenter de faire le point. ⤵️

1/14
La semaine dernière, la Haute Autorité de santé a rendu un avis sur les nouveaux vaccins adaptés à #Omicron, c'est-à-dire bivalents souche d'origine du virus et variant #Omicron (BA.1 ou BA.4/5). 👇

2/14
La @HAS_sante recommande que n'importe lequel de ces vaccins de nouvelle génération soit utilisé pour administrer une dose de rappel cet automne aux personnes à risques (plus de 60 ans, adultes avec comorbidités quel que soit leur âge, soignants, etc).

🇯🇵 Le Japon sort de sa vague épidémique la plus mortelle : après avoir atteint son pic le plus élevé depuis le début de la pandémie, le nombre de décès quotidiens de patients #Covid y est en chute libre depuis une vingtaine de jours.

Malgré cette vague, le Japon affiche un nombre cumulé de décès #Covid bien moindre que les Etats-Unis ou les grands pays européens.

Cependant, si l'on se restreint aux 12 dernier mois, les différentes sont bien moins nettes.

📍VARIANTS OUTLOOK—I’m old enough to recall a few smug virologists who were adamant that “#SARS2 don’t mutate much”/ “re-infections impossible”—then tried to silence & shame anyone warning about reinfections. ➡️Well, here is our #COVID19 winter roadmap—many are immunity evading👀 Image
2) Here is what you need to focus on —it’s scary how now there is **CONVERGENT EVOLUTION** of very specific combinations of mutations that are showing up together across many different Omicron family trees. They all are converging to IMMUNITY EVASION. Image
3) I’m also old enough to have seen the #COVID denialism and minimizers become wrong TIME AND TIME again… each time dismissing restrictions and then each time claiming “nobody could have foreseen this” sudden hospitalization surge! UK 🇬🇧 hospitals for example… HT @TRyanGregory Image

1/Stage of pandemic- where people have to go to work with #COVID or they don’t get paid and can’t pay their rent.
Now have a sick relative who went to work with someone who said they had Covid but couldn’t afford to be off.
They are on zero hours contracts.
2/ I’m not sure how anyone could survive on statutory sick pay should they have the misfortune to be unwell.

£99.35 per week. Really?? @trussliz could you live on that? #ToriesOutNow

So will it likely get worse? You tell me… hospital #COVID19 admissions in kids age 0-5 in England are surging once again. Remember that England has very few young kids vaccinated against #COVID.
Don’t be flippant about #COVID risks to kids. Kids shouldn’t be dying at all—there are absolutely zero valid “risk factor” excuses that anyone can conjure to justify hospitalizations and deaths in kids, damnit!

Did someone warn you of the current #inflation, #recession, and #bearmarket in equities? Did you get out or reallocate in time? Breaking even? Maybe even profit?
Did you pay a subscription for those warnings late last year?
I started warning friends about it in 2016.

Read on🧵
When I said that I was warning my friends about it in 2016, I did so because it was clear that #Trump would not be a good president for the US & world #economy long-term, and would increase the odds of #inflation and rising #interestrates.

Late 2016 DMs in Norwegian to a friend: Image
But why am I not linking Twitter screenshots? Well, I haven't been on here for even two years yet, so my oldest conversations are in private FB chats with friends and family, as those were the only people I tried to warn.

Encore une super publication de l'@ONS pleine de chiffres #Covid, concernant cette fois les élèves adolescents vaccinés.

Cet été, 62,4% des 12-15 ans et 80,5% des 16-17 ans en Angleterre avaient reçu au moins une dose. Le plus intéressant, ce sont leurs caractéristiques. ⤵️

1/7 Image
Commençons par l'origine ethnique. Les adolescents d'origine chinoise et indienne sont les plus vaccinés, davantage que les blanc britanniques.

A l'inverse, les ados de couleur de peau noire sont parmi les moins vaccinés.

2/7 Image
Autre facteur d'inégalités : les adolescents vivant dans les zones les plus défavorisées sont les moins vaccinés, et inversement.

Plusieurs raisons peuvent l'expliquer, et on le constate aussi en France : accès à la vaccination plus ou moins simple, sociologie, etc.

1) With everyone from President Biden to the director-general of the World Health Organization suggesting that the #COVID19 pandemic is all but over, there is nevertheless one stubborn indicator in Quebec that hints that the province may already be entering a dreaded 8th wave.
2) As everyone now knows, Quebec – like most jurisdictions around the world – stopped widespread #COVID screening in January. The only reliable indicator left is wastewater analysis, which unfortunately has attracted very little news media attention of late.
3) And the latest wastewater analysis from Quebec’s public health institute (INSPQ) reveals that SARS-CoV-2 concentrations are rising in nearly every region of the province, most dramatically in Trois-Rivières and Gatineau. Please see the chart below. Image

1/ As if the #opioid crisis and the pending #ONhealth ED collapse weren’t enough, @OntariosDoctors section on Addiction Medicine warning OAT clinics across Ontario could see service disruptions as of Dec 1, 2022 (ironically #internationalaids day)
2/ At issue is the implementation of the new virtual care codes which will slash fees for video consultations with new patients— patients in rural or remote areas without access to specialists are likely to be most impacted. #onpoli #onhealth
3/The irony is that #mentalhealth in #ontario was pioneering in establishing the virtual care capacity that got us through #covid. Many community-based #buprenorphine programs in rural and remote areas operated virtually prior to the pandemic, increasing #accessibility to OAT.

Eines unserer Probleme ist, dass die Schlagzeile nicht lautet: "Großer Erfolg: neu angepasster Impfstoff gegen die aktuellen #Omikron-Varianten! Lasst euch alle #impfen!"
sondern "Meiner Meinung nach könnte es vielleicht sein, dass der neue #Impfstoff nicht sicher ist!"
Hinter der ersten Schlagzeile steckt eine Menge Arbeit, hinter der zweiten nur eine Menge Meinung. Sie stammt sinngemäß von Kekule, hätte aber auch von Stöhr oder Chanasit, Wodarg oder Bhakdi stammen können. Bedenklich, in einer Reihe mit den letzten beiden zu stehen.
Bei den angepassten #Covid-Impfstoffen wird nichts anderes gemacht, als seit Jahren mit den Influenza-Impfstoffen. Es ist keine Neuentwicklung, sondern nur eine "Beladung" des Grundimpfstoffes mit einem anderen Antigen. Das Fahrrad bekommt einen anderen Sattel.

🚨New @ons analysis shows that in 2021 the more children vaccinated in a school the lower the #covid rate!

➡️New covid infections were 40% LOWER in schools where >60% pupils had 1st jab compared to schools where <20% had 1st jab.

Vaccines for children are safe and effective.
(Also, outside U.K. - @GYamey @TRyanGregory who have argued in favour of the effectiveness of vaccines for under 18s )

Once upon a time, kids were allowed to smoke 🚬 . We stopped exposing kids to cigarettes when we learned it was bad. ➡️We now know #COVID harms kids’ brains & health. Yet we somehow keep letting kids get exposed to the harmful virus & #LongCovid. Find some humanity. Protect kids.
This is chart showing pediatric hospitalization for #COVID19 surging 45% in just 2 weeks in England. No, the kids are not alright. Stop this madness of infecting kids. Protect them damnit.
Reminder— Kids do indeed get sick. And do indeed get #LongCovid too. And they do transmit to other families. You cannot deny the dangers.

#COVID am Morgen. Ja, sieht wenig überraschend und damit auch nicht sonderlich gut aus. Kleiner🧵

Rt offiziell ist besser für den Vergleich mit dem Vorjahr - und schmiegt sich weiter an dessen Verlauf an. Steigung nimmt rapide zu.

Rt(off)=1.19 (+0.03) hRt=1.37 (+0.09)
_Real_ (ohne Schulöffnungs-einmalig-Dunkelziffer-Aufdeckungseffekt) liegt der Rt-Wert wesentlich niedriger.

Rt(real)=1.00 hRt=1.08(+0.04)

Ist jedoch dann nicht direkt mit dem Vorjahr vergleichbar.

Weshalb diese Entwicklung
bedenklich erscheint (zumindest bis dato), zeige ich hier einmal anhand des Langzeit-Rt´s. Es ist nicht nur so, daß die Fallzahlen um ein vielfaches über denen des Vorjahres liegen, sondern der Anstieg des Rt erfolgt deutlich früher (=der Graph davor zeigt 2021 zeitlich versetzt)

Stell Dir vor es ist wissenschaftlich bewiesen, das C19 thrombotische Eigenschaften hat.
In Labors weltweit nachgewiesen.

Jetzt bekommt man plötzlich Luftnot, erst ganz leicht. Unter Belastung.
Nicht so schlimm, denkt man. Noch nix sofort für den Arzt.

Der Hausarzt sagt, man habe einen Termin in ein paar Tagen…

Die Luftnot wird von Tag zu Tag schlimmer - aber man hat bald ja den Hausarzt-Termin.

Man war stets gesund. Ein paar Wehwehchen sind im Alter normal…

#Thromboembolie #CovidIsntOver
Die Atemnot wird nun schlimmer. Angst. Panik. Todesangst. Ganz plötzlich.
Man ruft den Rettungsdienst.
Der ist schnell da - aber man hat den Hausarzttermin erwähnt. Klingt nicht dramatisch. Kein Notarzt wird mit alarmiert.

Over 220 people attended this @CDCofBC Grand Round. Thank you to everyone who showed up, and for your pointed questions. Image
Presentation was based on this study, not yet peer reviewed. Except perhaps on twitter by epidemiologists on twitter. @EpiEllie @FurnessColin @rdumont99 medrxiv.org/content/10.110… Image
There were several obvious contradictions in the presentation. Expect a longer thread to follow. This below "real time goals" is likely the most egregious.

(1/17) @rivm in Nederland besluit uit haar literatuuronderzoek, na 2,5 jr pandemie, dat niet bewezen is dat mobiele #luchtreinigers transmissie v #COVID19 helpen reduceren. Die stelling is onzinnig, onverantwoord, zelfs schadelijk. Vraagt om 'en draadje.

(2/17) Uiteraard moet het gaan om goede apparaten die voldoende krachtig zijn voor de ruimte waarin ze opgesteld staan (reinigingsfrequentie van minstens 6 keer per uur) en moeten ze goed onderhouden worden. Evident. Geldt voor alle mechanische systemen.
