1/ There are clinically relevant differences between #COVID19 #Sepsis & typical bacterial sepsis, but they are Quantitative rather than Qualitative. That is, all clinicians have seen them before in other sepsis pts before this #virus 🦠 infected its 1st human.

#medtwitter #meded
2/ Quantitative septic findings are more commonly part of daily care for #COVID patients than we have been used eg, near total loss of the tracheobronchial tree’s muco-ciliary escalator due to destruction of ciliated respiratory epithelium.

#pulmcc #tipsfornewdocs #criticalcare
3/ Classically in #Influenza pneumonia/sepsis, this predisposes to subsequent superinfection from bacteria like Staph & Strep. In #COVID, we are always on the ready to begin antibiotics to cover such complications of what initially was a pure viral infection.

I had an antibody test yesterday. I had symptomatic #COVID from 7/13 thru at least 7/20. I tested negative for antibodies (IgM or IgG). I'm honestly quite upset about it. Im seeing, on average, 2-3 #COVID19 pts per day. Was hoping (probably irrationally) that I had immunity left
Especially since my wife is pregnant, but this just further supports my views on our incomplete knowledge of immunity. Thankfully, my wife (37 wks pregnant) who also had #COVID at the same time, has a positive antibldy test. So let me update... 10 people got #COVID from our group
3 had negative PCR tests within 1 day of symptom onset. I do not have antibodies now. My wife does have antibodies. We have moved our delivery date up because of our OB's fear of COVID complications. And I continue to see people struggling from horrible neurologic complications

1) Quebec’s top public health officer is asserting that during the #pandemic, the province has been hit harder than the rest of Canada partly because a more “invasive” and “lethal” strain of the #coronavirus is circulating here. In this thread, I will fact-check this assertion.
2) Dr. Horacio Arruda offered this explanation when asked by a reporter Friday why Quebec is still reporting more #COVID19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths than other provinces, even after the first wave. Arruda cited a study of the #coronavirus in his answer.
3) “There was a study done on the virus that entered Quebec," @ArrudaHoracio explained. "It’s different from the one that was in China. (This strain) came more from Europe and has a morbidity and mortality rate that is much more significant.”

Took Rs. 1380 Crore in 2017 for @Infosys_GSTN but there is no end of errors. Enough of Representations to @FinMinIndia and @Infosys_GSTN. Its time to deal the corporate way. I urge all to post one error and tag one client of @Infosys and ask them if they also get such service ?
When @Infosys designed Softwares for you, did you also face same problems like delayed OTPs after expiry, need for customer standing in online queue while logging in and mistake in calculation,like we taxpayers face as GST penalties are calculated wrong?
@Accenture When @Infosys designs Software for you, as part of Technical support do they write "Our Team will get back to you and then leave a mystery ? #ExtendGSTR9C

Here's a list of companies that the government has wasted taxpayers money on relating to #Covid.
1 - Randox - Unsafe test kits £133M
March 2019 it was reported that former cabinet minister Owen Paterson, who was a consultant to Randox , had helped to lobby the govt to seek contracts for them. This violates rules stating that an MP may not lobby on behalf of a paying client.
10 - Computacenter - failed laptop scheme £60M…

1) Quebec posted 637 #COVID cases Friday — a number not seen since the #pandemic's first wave — placing the entire greater Montreal region in an orange zone. Yet authorities won't impose any of their own proposed public health restrictions. In this thread, I will highlight them.
2) On Sept. 17, the government made public a previously secret “working document” on #pandemic restrictions the day after analyst @Patrickdery published them on Twitter (scooping me). The summary lists “potential” restrictions in a color-coded alert scale. See the chart below.
3) According to that chart, the government would have closed bars, taverns and casinos by now in the orange zones. Contact sports and competitions would have been banned. People would not have been allowed to eat in restaurants. But none of those restrictions have been imposed.

On the day @GovRonDeSantis rejects the experts and all reason by forcing Florida into Phase III, a 12 year old girl from Atlantic Beach lost her battle with #COVID and died. She was in the sixth grade. Just started school back to at Mayport in Duval. #ThisIsThePrice
More details to come. Friends of her family have set up a GoFundMe that I'm waiting to verify will go to the family. I'm not releasing her name without permission. Not waiting on @HealthyFla to confirm two months from now cause they may just delete her like the boy from Escambia
Less than a month after @GovRonDeSantis forced schools to reopen via executive order, which led to his top epidemiologist quitting after 15 years at DOH, children are dying.

“Somebody bought an online test for home use and this was the return address. Why would your test sample be going here?” @TAG73957257

Honeyman Group has its head office in Barnards Castle & Glaxo Smith Klein has a big laboratory there.
Wow! The #AppScandal continues.

@doctor_oxford: “The govt’s “NHS” Covid app only wants to know about Serco/private testing.

If you had a test in an NHS or PHE lab, you literally cannot enter the result on the app.” #Covid_19 #COVID19 #coronavirus #Covid #Corona
The #AppScandal is just one of a dozen other individual scandals that are all part of the overarching #HerdImmunityScandal (Testing Scandal, Care Home Scandal, PPE Scandal, Screening Scandal)

If #HerdImmunity was the govt’s strategy, what is their plan?

1. #Influenza experts from around the world have been meeting virtually with WHO experts over the past week or so to decide which flu strains ought to be in the 2021 winter flu shot for the southern hemisphere. Their report is here:…
2. The Trump administration is withdrawing the US from @WHO next year & is already blocking cooperation with the global health agency in many circumstances. BUT: US-govt agencies (CDC-FDA) & the WHO flu collaborating center at St Jude Hospital took part in this meeting.
3. The gathered scientists had fewer strains than usual on which to base their recommendations. Pressures of #Covid19 on surveillance systems & less transmission of flu potentially due to travel restrictions are cited as the reason why.

1/ Most indicative of my ignorance as a young ICU doc in 1990 was my off-service note for a 28 year old w/ PROFOUND post-ARDS #PICS: “However, amazingly enough, she still manifests only single organ damage (lungs) w/ good renal, GI, & CV fxn.”

Apparently, neither her brain nor neuromuscular system were on my 🧠radar, because both organ systems were newly, severely, & permanently diseased as I penned that statement. Beware now in #COVID

By the way, of course, I showed that note 📝 and use this patient’s example with written permission from her son who wants others to learn from the experience of his mother.

My most recent piece on why gas should power Africa’s Post-COVID growth:…
1/5. Facilitating broad-based economic growth for W. African countries to achieve upper middle-income status has become even more difficult of a challenge after #COVID
2/5. Access to affordable and reliable #energy is critical to the region’s development, and its abundant #naturalgas resources should underpin its energy system.

W. Africa cannot achieve high economic growth rates by framing energy policy around household energy.

And I’m old enough to remember when Japan was supposedly hiding its outbreak so Tokyo wouldn’t lose the Olympics. More excellent epidemiology, am I right? The nice thing about explaining after the fact is you can always fit the target to the cluster.
Some more praise for the way Japan handled #Covid early on (and later, too!):

.@IndyMayorJoe announcing some loosening of #coronavirus restrictions. The announcement comes two days after @GovHolcomb announced he'll lift most statewide restrictions tomorrow.
Hogsett: Indy will increase capacity limits starting Monday. Restaurants/bars/nightclubs can seat up to 50% indoors, full capacity outside. Museums, gyms and entertainment venues can open at 50%.
Live entertainment can resume, with #socialdistancing precautions in place, including 10-foot buffer between stage and audience.

Churches and funerals move to 75% capacity indoors (there's already no cap outdoors). Midnight closing for restaurants and bars remains in place.

The UK has so far suffered ~50k excess deaths ‘with #COVID19 mentioned on the death certificate’ - 6 out of 7 aged 65+, 1/3 in care homes, 1/5 in hospitals where many were 1st infected.

At the same time, government has borrowed almost £150 billion more than in 2019... 1/3
... that works out at almost £3 million per death and counting.

Do you suppose better management could have lowered both the death toll AND the cost? EG by protecting the vulnerable, treating the sick -with or w/out #COVID19(84) - setting everyone else free!!
FYI projections for full FY20-21 borrowing were already almost double the current tab, at £372bln - imagine what they look like now that the #BorisJohnson Junta, Nicola Maduro #Sturgeon, et al, have swung the Camp #Covid gates shut again on the Flu-lag Archipelago! 3/3
