Time for @StevenDelDuca @AndreaHorwath to stop attacking one another. Spend this last week of the campaign talking about your policies and reviewing Doug Ford's record:
- failure to use #COVID19 funds & where r they now?
- cuts to public health funding pre-covid19 never restored
- destroyed N95 stockpiles and failed to restore them
- froze nurses salaries when this province needed them the most in the past century!
- failed to raise #ODSP rates out of severe poverty (45% below Canada's poverty line)
- cancelled #ODSP raises/no inflation incr.
#onpoli
- Failed to heed expert advice urging PPE for LTCH/RHs
- License plates/Buck-a-Beer 🤦🏼‍♂️
- Privatization of LTCH/RH and poorer COVID19 outcomes among some of their residents
- insulated LTCH/RH buddies from lawsuits & permitted fee hike$

Y si te dijera que la infección por #COVID19 puede haber afectado a tu función ovárica?

Has padecido la covid19 y te está costando quedarte embarazada?

Seguramente no lo sabes, como tantas investigaciones relacionadas con salud femenina.

Así que vengo a hablar de ello.

#Hilo Image
Hay muchos estudios explicando como la infección por covid19 afectaba a los organos, pero hasta este estudio no había una relación con el sistema reproductivo femenino.

Spoiler, el año pasado ya había bastantes hablando de como afectaba a los espermatozoides.

Que chorprecha.
En el estudio liderado por científicas del Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (CONICET) y del Instituto de Biología y Medicina Experimental (IBYME), en Buenos Aires, demuestra el efecto de la infección por SARS-CoV-2 en el sistema reproductivo femenino. Image

Ich wünsche mir, dass ein Wort in Zukunft bei Gesundheitskommunikation von Behörden & Medien nicht mehr benutzt wird: „Panik“. Sorgen von Menschen & Verunsicherung herabzuspielen, ist keine Kommunikation. Panik entsteht, wo Informationen fehlen. Statt zu sagen: „Keine Panik“
sollte man besser Risiken erläutern: Wie ist das Risiko für die Gesamtbevölkerung, wie für bestimmte Gruppen? Welche Schritte werden jetzt unternommen? Welche Präventions-/Behandlungsmöglichkeiten gibt es? Das Framing von Besorgnis als Panik“ ist für mich ein Indikator, dass
jemand sein Gegenüber/Empfänger nicht ernst nimmt. Ich glaube, Sorge beim Auftreten einer neuen Erkrankung ist normal & „gesund“. Ich möchte von Entscheidungsträgern nicht hören „keine Panik“, sondern welche Schritte man unternimmt & wie man sich für versch Szenarien vorbereitet

Was wir tun müssen, um uns in Zukunft vor #Affenpocken & Co zu schützen.
Ein Thread.

Die #Affenpocken sind nach #Ebola, #Zika und #Covid19 bereits die vierte Infektionskrankheit in den letzten 10 Jahren, die uns kräftig in den Arsch beißt.
Und da kommen noch mehr.
1/13
Das ist alles nicht so richtig überraschend, Fachleute warnen seit Jahren vor der Entwicklung. Die Gründe sind vielfältig, das wäre nen eigenen Thread wert.

Aber vor allem müssen wir uns darauf einrichten, dass uns das Problem auf absehbare Zeit begleitet. Was also tun?
2/13
Aus meiner Sicht gibt es diverse Baustellen, an die wir in Deutschland ran müssen.
Die erste ist das #Gesundheitssystem. Da müssen erstens mal die strukturellen Probleme gelöst werden. Über Personalmangel & Co ist viel geschrieben worden, das können andere besser.

Why I feel we will have a much bigger outbreak of #MonkeyPox & top 70 updates ( we had 50 yesterday ) in the thread below . Let's start by what we already know & then go further

Ctd)
51/n Spain is seriously looking at whether the 80K strong LGBT community get together was a super spreader , they are also trying to find if one of the Saunas ( where gay men go for sex) has been the source , so the consequences are not due to genital spread but congregation ctd) Image
52/n The problem is its large number of likely reservoirs and things we probably can't entirely avoid including animal droppings : rats, mice, squirrels, shrews, opossums, ground hogs etc . So once it gets into a geographical location #monkeypox will be a tough nut ctd)

Derzeit haben in Deutschland erst 5,8% der Bevölkerung eine vierte Impfung erhalten, und auch bei den über 60-jährigen sind es gerade mal 17,5%.

…zu den Erkenntnissen aus den mittlerweile zahlreichen Studien zur Wirksamkeit der 4. Impfung.

Daten zur 4. Impfung liegen derzeit aus Israel, UK, Schweden, Kanada und Deutschland vor. Ein Überblick dazu mit Verlinkungen zu den einzelnen Studien gibt es am Ende des Threads.
Die Ergebnisse der diversen Studien lassen sich wie folgt zusammenfassen:

👉 Die Daten basieren in der Regel auf Impfungen von Personen im Alter ab 60 Jahren. Aber auch Ergebnisse der vierten Impfung von jüngeren Mitarbeitern im Gesundheitswesen wurden untersucht.

Nun auch offiziell bestätigt, der erste Fall an #Affenpocken in der #Schweiz. Wichtig, nun gut zu informieren & aufmerksam zu sein.
Aufgrund Dynamik des Ausbruchsgeschehens & bereits vielen Fällen weltweit wird dies wohl nicht der einzige Fall bleiben. In Anbetracht der langen Inkubationszeit wahrscheinlich ein Infektionsgeschehen was schon eine zeitlang unerkannt stattfindet. Sequenzierdaten sehr wichtig!
Ich glaube dennoch nicht, dass man sich auf breiter Bevölkerungsebene aktuell (grosse) Sorgen deswegen machen muss. Besorgniserregender finde ich weiterhin #COVID19 & die unklare #Hepatitis bei Kindern & hoffe dass deren Aufklärung nicht unter den #Affenpocken zu kurz kommt.

"Over the past months, we've seen more deaths from #COVID19 than any time at the beginning of the pandemic." ~ @JustinTrudeau

1. With > 82% with two doses, why are more Canadians than ever before dying?
2. If true, why is the solution more doses?
Similar question from May 18/22 Question Period, same reply from Trudeau.

#Monkeypox has so far been reported from 11 countries that normally don't have the disease. WHO is working with these countries & others to expand surveillance, and provide guidance.
There are about 80 confirmed cases, and 50 pending investigations. More likely to be reported.
These #monkeypox cases are from non-endemic countries.
WHO continues to receive updates on the status of ongoing outbreaks in endemic countries through established surveillance mechanisms bit.ly/3ls48Jp
As always, WHO is working with all Member States, regional offices, @ECDC, @CDCgov, technical advisory groups (e.g. Strategic & Technical Advisory Group on Infectious Hazards with Pandemic and Epidemic Potential [STAG-IH]), expert working groups, @GOARN & others on #monkeypox

⚠️Des infos non vérifiées circulent déjà en masse et certains comptes très actifs dans la désinformation #COVID19 répandent à nouveau la peur, d'autant plus aujourd'hui avec le premier cas avéré en 🇫🇷.

Pour s'informer de façon rigoureuse, je recommande :

🧑‍🔬La docteure en #virologie, médiatrice scientifique, autrice et vulgarisatrice Tania Louis, alias @SciTania.
🧑‍🔬La "coccinelle sceptique" XXI, alias @Locuste_, à qui on doit notamment des threads bien construits et faciles à appréhender.

I welcome the recent engagement by sections of the media and public to engage + participate in global pandemic governance thru #stopthetreaty … but first there needs to be greater understating of what @WHO is + what currently is for discussion in #IHR reform #pandemictreaty 🧵
This is happening here in the UK too (thanks Russel Brand @rustyrockets for a plug to our work @LSEnews )
There are so many errors that I am seeing, as an expert in global health security and @WHO processes for pandemic preparedness & response I thought I would share some thoughts, this is complex and multi-stranded

W imieniu @PLSiecEkonomii napisałem 💣polemikę💣 ws "młodych ekonomistów". Czego nauczyliśmy się z kryzysu?

Ortodoksyjne trzymanie się starych warunków gry nie jest pragmatyczne; ekonomia wychodzi z wieży z kości słoniowej.

Cytaty👇🧵

wyborcza.biz/biznes/7,17919…
"Za naszą propozycją pol gosp stoi spostrzeżenie, że podstawową rolą państwa nie jest stabilizacja agregatów polityki fisk czy mon na tym czy innym poziomie, ale przeciwdziałanie sytuacjom, w których nierównowagi char dla gosp kapitalistycznej wymykają się spod kontroli"
"Sztywne limity nie tylko stabilizują, ale generują inne nierównowagi i pokusy, czego dowodem są rekordowe nierówności (zarówno dochodowe, jak i majątkowe) oraz problemy finansjalizacji w rozwiniętych gospodarkach, w tym w Polsce."

How do such a disparate group of people, involving those with significant conflicts of interest, get together to get publications as letters in major journals?

Who is pushing this?
And why is @gidmk's focus on "fraud" only seemingly in one direction?

Discuss...
So what is Gideon's background? He appears as an "expert" at the Australian Academy of Science.
Why?
