#TranchesDeCovid : énormément de souvenirs ce matin dans mes publications d'il y a 3 ans.

#Contact_tracing can be a practical and effective way of containing disease spread. But did you know it's even more effective when social groups are involved?
Check out our* new paper:

* @leahakeating @gleesonj @DavidJPOS @bolozna
Contact tracing not only cuts direct infection paths but can also prevent indirect spreading routes in groups. We illustrate how it can be more efficient than what would be predicted by models that assume a fully mixed population or a locally tree-like network structure.

Our results show that the outbreak size shrinks as clique size, c, grows, and this is amplified by higher contact tracing success probability α, despite fixed transmission probability p.

Here are some numbers, @laneygradschool. Numbers so large we can hardly imagine them. This is what the deans, presidents, and minions of the @EmoryUniversity made in *2017.*
#DeanCurran recently retired to a nice volcano in Mordor.
Q: What do they do all day?
A: Read my tweets. Image
Since the #university is private, we literally don’t even know what these clowns are raking in every year nowadays. This information is not available. @Kimjacobarriola what’s your salary? Or is it rude to ask?

#GradStudents aren’t included in budget meetings. Can’t IMAGINE why.
I shudder to think who the new *interim associate senior apprentice acting adjunct vice dean* will be and what they will earn for doing it. it’s just…gross. anyways, he’s gone— maybe distribute the wealth freed up by his obscene salary? It’s almost 40x what a #PhDstudent makes.

1/ #WirWollenKinderSchützen, weil Schutz von Kindern und Familien untrennbar verbunden ist.
Die Infektionen an den Schulen sind völlig aus dem Ruder. Wir fordern die Kantone auf, einfache Massnahmen sofort anzuordnen:
- Maskenpflicht ab dem 1. Fall
- Aussetzen der Präsenzpflicht
2/ Das Aussetzen der Präsenzpflicht soll mit flexiblem Homeschooling kombiniert werden:
▶️Präsenzunterricht für sozio-ökonomisch Benachteiligte erhalten
▶️SuS im Homeschooling per Videokonferenz dazuschalten
▶️Götti/Gotte (Mitschüler:in) liefert Material an Kind im Homeschooling
3/ #Prävention, repetitive Tests, smartes TTIQ (Test Trace Isolate Quarantine) und Masken haben wir seit 09/21 gefordert.
Doch die Kantone haben die Situation schleifen lassen, jüngere Kinder nicht geschützt und TTIQ mit unzähligen Ausnahmen ausgehöhlt.

Am 28.11.21 stimmen wir über das #CovidGesetz ab. 🙋🙋‍♀️

Ein #CovidGesetzNEIN bedeutet nicht, dass das ganze Gesetz abgelehnt wird.

Es geht allein um die Gesetzesänderungen vom März 2021.

Heiss diskutiert sind die Artikel zum #CovidZertifikat, es geht aber noch um mehr. 🧵
Finanzielle Hilfen:

Im März 21 wurden mehr Möglichkeiten für finanzielle Hilfen geschaffen. 💰

Es ist wichtig, dass den Betroffenen schnellstmöglich geholfen werden kann und sie eine Planungssicherheit haben.

!B Möglichkeiten der finanziellen Unterstützung gemäss Covid

Die Orga A plant ein grosses Festival mit nationalen und internationalen Akteuren. Kurz vor der Durchführung muss alles abgesagt werden wegen #COVID19. Es sind Kosten im hohen Bereich entstanden. Per Gesetz wird der Orga A finanziell geholfen.

In December @LuciaMullen17, @selenasd, Dr. Shada Rouhani, and I surveyed state/territorial health departments to update our understanding of #COVID19 contact tracing. From that survey, @selenasd wrote a great article highlighting 6 key takeaways. (1/5)…

In addition to the key takeaways from @selenasd, you can now explore the contact tracing data for yourself, including viewing in real time how the contact tracing workforce stacks up against the current #COVID19 incidence rate in each state/territory. (3/5)

Many research papers as well as #RKI, Germany assert average start of symptoms for #COVID19 around 5th-6th day of infection and peak of infectiousness between 2 days before to 1 day after onset of symptoms.. 🧵1/. #2ndlevel #contacttracing #coronavirus
As thumbrule it takes 10-12 days for #lockdown to impact the spread of #COVID19, so duration between infection till confirmation is on avg. 10 days. This is reasonable as people would wait 1-2 days with symptoms, book a test appointment and get the results so 6+2+1+1=10 days 🧵2/
So if Person A gets infected with #COVID19 today, he will be reported as a confirmed case after 10 days. But he might have infected person B after 4 days. Person B might have infected person C after 4+4 = 8 days from today, or 2 days before person A is reported. 🧵3/

1) Now learning about #GESARA and #NESARA. Starting to look like #Trump might have actually prepared the way for their implementation. A crucial step is getting nation off debt based system controlled by central banks and reclaiming control with gold-backed currency.
2) That's why I'm looking at ScoMo's much derided use of phrase "#goldstandard" in a new light. Remember that he made this comment about #NSWpol's handling of #COVID19AU back in September, saying "that is where we have to get everybody to":
3) ScoMo used phrase several times. In clip below (Dec): "NSW Govt's testing and tracing capabilities are #goldstandard not just in this country but anywhere around the world." So, local and global reference. #NESARA is USA, #GESARA is global.

Our analysis reveals that the #SourceCode that has been released as the “backend code” is grossly incomplete. Though any effort at transparency needs to be lauded, much of how the @SetuAarogya operates is still opaque…
@NICMeity @GoI_MeitY
The code released on 20th November does contain code that corresponds to the #frontend of the website and the code released also contains code that lets the website interact with the application through the #webview.
#COVID19 #ContactTracing
However, some of the libraries/modules that the code depends on have not been released and very little of the released code is meant to run on the #backend.
