1/4 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦 : after weeks of increasing transmission, hospitalisation rates are rising in many jurisdictions and across most age groups. Rates of hospital/ICU admission/death remain highest in older adults, aged ≥60 years.…
2/4 With #COVID19 still spreading widely in Canada, it’s not too late and very important to get the best possible protection against severe illness by keeping #COVID19Vaccines up-to-date, including #COVID19Booster dose(s) as recommended.…
3/4 Evidence shows that 2 doses of mRNA #COVID19Vaccines generally maintain good effectiveness against severe outcomes across variants, and a booster further increases vaccine effectiveness to over 90% against severe outcomes.…

1/4 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦 : not unexpectedly, ⬆️ in-person activities following easing of public health measures, together with spread of the more transmissible BA.2 variant and some waning of immunity, may be contributing to ⬆️ transmission.…
2/4 Average daily cases have increased by 28% vs. last week, indicating resurgence is underway nationally (Mar 25-31, 2022); also 7-day lab test positivity (Mar 23-29) ⬆️ to 16% and wastewater signals are ⬆️ in many localities.
3/4 Although overall high vaccination rates are expected to lessen the impact on hospitals, severe illness trends have begun to increase in many jurisdictions (range 3%-27% weekly ⬆️ in daily number of patients with #COVID19 in hospitals).

"Throughout our history we’ve learned this lesson – when dictators do not pay a price for their aggression, they cause more chaos. They keep moving. And, the costs & threats to America & the world keep rising.

70 presidents and prime ministers from Europe and Africa are arriving right now for day 2 of the #EUAUSummit in Brussels.

The big-picture geopolitical context: #Europe is trying to convince #Africa to choose them as a partner instead of #China.
European and African leaders have just held a press conference announcing a compromise on the issue of #Covid19Vaccines and IP rights.

The EU will set up technology transfer hubs in Africa to scale up production. But this falls short of the #TRIPSwaiver African countries wanted.
"We’re doing this in the right order," insists Macron.

"We first donated doses, now we’re launching these technology transfer hubs so we can develop the manufacturing sites for MRNA manufacture...Then we need the purchasing commitment."

A report some are claiming shows a link between #COVID19vaccines & an unusual form of #myocarditis is circulating.

To say the connection is a stretch is an understatement.

What does the report show & what does it not show?

A 🧵…
The introduction presents a summary:

“..autopsy results including microscopic myocardial findings of 2 teenage boys who died within the 1st week after receiving the 2nd Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 dose. The microscopic findings are not the alterations seen with typical myocarditis”
Both were tested for #SARSCoV2 & nothing was found.

There is no record of a previous SARS-CoV2 infection.

Therefore, no evidence for post-COVID19 cardiac injury.

Other infections were not explored.

1/5 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦: while we’ve passed peak #omicron, measures are still needed to relieve the pressure on our hospitals. In particular, closing vaccine coverage gaps and maintaining core personal protective practices.…
2/5 In particular, millions of eligible Canadians could reduce their risk of ending up in hospital with severe COVID-19 disease by getting up-to-date with #COVID19Vaccines/mRNA #Booster as eligible/ recommended.
3/5 Evidence shows two doses of #COVID19Vaccines offer reasonably good protection against severe disease, and getting an mRNA booster dose as eligible offers superior protection, keeping more people out of hospital and preventing more deaths.

1/4 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦: in good news, today is the first day all jurisdictions are reporting a decline in their latest 7-day average case counts. Infection rates are still elevated/activity still widespread, but trending in the right direction!…
2/4 Protecting this progress and ↓ severe illness trends across the country, is helped by more people getting up-to-date with #COVID19Vaccines and by all of us maintaining precautions like wearing masks & avoiding crowding. #VaccinesPlus
3/4 Two doses of mRNA #COVID19Vaccines provide reasonable protection against severe Omicron disease (~64%-86% vaccine effectiveness), which ↓ over time since 2nd dose. However, protection ↑ to ~90% or more after an mRNA #BoosterDose.

1/5 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦: this may feel like a double marathon we didn’t sign up for, but we can draw strength knowing the ground we’ve covered so far to stay on track and work together to get where we need to go.…
2/5 As public health continues vaccination efforts & closely monitors local epidemiology for signs of peaking activity in the weeks ahead, we can all help by staying the course to get through this difficult time sooner. #VaccinesPlus➡️…
3/5 Currently, we still need millions more Canadians to increase their protection with #COVID19Vaccines, including almost 7 million eligible people who need a 1st or 2nd dose of their primary series.

1/7 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦: Nationally, the average daily case count has increased by more than 50% compared to the previous 7-day average, with >42,000 cases being reported daily over the past 7 days (data up to Jan 6th).…
2/7 High infection rates that are challenging testing capacity in much of the country lead to an underestimation of the true case numbers, but we continue to test & sequence at very high levels to track the spread and monitor variant predominance.…
3/7 At the same time, we continue to use multiple other indicators, such as laboratory test positivity and hospitalisation/critical illness trends that are useful for monitoring overall disease activity and severity impacts.

How embarrassing would it be to have cited this retracted article in a review claiming that #COVID19Vaccines have negative effects on pregnancy?

If only there were clues that this was a dumpster fire of a study...…
Oh wait...

"Thornley’s commentary on Covid-19 & vaccination has been roundly & routinely criticised by public health experts. He was keynote speaker at an event held by anti-vaccination group Voices for Freedom..."

Translation: everyone knew it was wrong. Well, almost everyone.
Perhaps the most interesting part of this article is the reference to the institution that employs Thornley.

As you read this, keep in mind other academic institutions have claimed their hands are tied because of academic freedom...

Another #misinformation list from Real Time News claims a connection between #COVID19vaccines & cardiac events in athletes, based on a “large number of cases [of athletes & coaches] close to vaccination”.

Even a quick review of these claims shows them to be nonsense.

A thread.
The article claims to have a list of 108 people who died.

But a review shows it is a actually list of 108 people who may or may not have had cardiac events.

And for the vast majority there is no information about COVID19 vaccines at all.

None. Image
Who are some of the ‘athletes’ with purported connections between COVID19 vaccines & cardiac events?

Jordan Tucker, a former soccer player who last played in 2016.

Stretching the definition of "athlete".

No mention of vaccination status.…

BREAKING: Johnson & Johnson has granted a license to South Africa's Aspen Pharmacare to manufacture an Aspen-branded version of the J&J #COVID19vaccine for distribution in Africa. #VaccineApartheid #COVID19
The agreement is the result of several months of negotiations & investment, says WTO's Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala. She says WTO is holding periodic meetings with #COVID19 vaccine manufacturers & hopes agreement will be a step to decentralise #COVID19vaccine production globally.
Okonjo-Iweala says the #Omicron is another reason why #TRIPSwaiver discussions must be concluded speedily. This follows the WTO's decision to cancel its recent ministerial meeting following the variant's discovery.

The latest #COVID19vaccine myth that has re-appeared is a claim linking vaccination to sudden cardiac arrest (#SCA) in athletes.

The reality is there is no demonstrated link between the vaccine & SCA in athletes.

In fact, SCA in athletes is not a new phenomenon.
For well over a decade I have taught a class on cardiology & we dedicate an entire lecture to SCA in high performance athletes.

Each year I am able to update the lecture with the latest high profile SCA case. We have discussed Jiří Fischer, Fabrice Muamba, & Jay Bouwmeester.
SCA in high performance athletes predates the COVID19 vaccine.

In a 2012 study it was reported that on average, an athlete dies from sudden cardiac arrest every 2-3 days in the US. The rates are similar in other countries.…
