The 6th #COVID19 surge in the US is deepening each day, driven by the highly infectious Omicron #BA2 & #BA2121 subvariants, and the Biden administration has made clear that it will no nothing to slow or stop the spread. #CovidIsNotOver A🧵1/…
On Wednesday the US recorded nearly 190,000 new cases, pushing the 7-day average of daily new cases to well over 100,000. According to the New York Times, hospitalizations now stand at 22,875, a 27 percent increase over the last 14 days. 2/
These figures are known to be significant undercounts due to the bipartisan undermining of testing & data reporting at the federal & state levels since January 2022. Only 4 states now report #COVID data daily, while 13 states report once/week or less. 3/

[THREAD] Wondering what to make of the @US_FDA’s new rules about the J&J vaccine? Here’s what you need to know. Image
America’s medicines regulator announced that the J&J jab should only be given to adults in 3 scenarios:
1. They don’t have access to other #COVID jabs.
2. They can’t take other #COVID #vaccines for medical reasons.
3. They choose the J&J jab because it’s the only vaccine available.

Small thread on why I think we will see a bigger outbreak of #monkeypox d/t #COVID19 .We know Covid causes T cell response suppression in some & also complement mediated injury leading to effective reduction in levels of complements (hypocomplementemia) ctd)@fitterhappierAJ ctd) Image
2/n We know for a fact that at least in kids the complement induced injury caused hypocomplementemia in young , this was one of the pathways of acute liver injury in some kids , if the complement system is exhausted

🧵1. It used to be straightforward to determine when we were in a #COVIDinSA wave. Everyone used the ministerial advisory committee’s formula. In 2022, things are a bit more complicated. Some researchers argue this method is no longer all that useful.
2. If we use the MAC formula, the fifth wave started on May 7. But since these numbers alone no longer translate into curfews, lockdowns or liquor bans, @nicd_sa researchers believe a new benchmark may be necessary.
3. The @nicd_sa's @Dr_Groome says #COVID19 case numbers have become less meaningful — using them to calculate a wave, even more so: “Severe outcomes like hospitalisations and deaths are better metrics to use now that we have seen the decoupling of cases and severe outcomes.”

Nur von 69,7% der #Covid-19 Neuaufnahmen in der KW15 bis KW18 wurde der Impfstatus ermittelt! Ein Feuerwerk an Inkompetenz, Unfähigkeit oder gar gezielter Absicht! Und niemand stört sich daran, dass man nicht in der Lage oder willens ist, den Impfstatus von Intensivpatienten
1/5 Image
mit #Corona korrekt zu ermitteln!

Der Fakt, dass man bei 30,3% der Covid-19 Intensivpatienten keinen Impfstatus weiß, ist ein unglaublicher Skandal & es liegt nahe zu vermuten, dass damit versucht wird noch schlimmere Daten zur Unwirksamkeit der Impfstoffe zu überdecken.

Noch “besser” treibt man es mit der Berichterstattung im Wochenbericht zu den symptomatischen Covid-19 Fällen. Diese wurde komplett eingestellt. Im letzten Wochenbericht vor der Einstellung wurde berichtet, dass 82% der symptomatischen Covid-19 Infektionen auf das Konto von

1/14 I hesitated at voicing my opinion on this rather contentious issue…

But I feel that without individual testimonies, we will fail to understand why some GPs (myself included) feel mainstream primary care is no longer for them.

@HelenRSalisbury @MartinRCGP @rcgp
2/ Obvs the relentless vilification from the MSM hasn’t helped, esp the claim by some that the number of ‘part-time’ GPs is the problem.

Those on the inside know that a typical day is 11-12hrs long & a ‘half-day’ is regularly 7-8, but hey, let’s not let facts get in the way.
3/ & I don’t suppose those of us who volunteered to work f2f in acute #COVID services within the community in spring 2020 will forget that our pleas for effective #PPE were repeatedly ignored & dismissed by govt, PHE, NHSE, HSE & senior advisors.

Whoa—@bankofengland just warned that deep concern of surging #LongCovid is taking workers out of the workforce. The spike ⬆️ in workers age 16-64 who do not work because of long term illness during the #COVID pandemic is alarming, and fast increasing. Mass infection depravity.🧵 Image
2) “Since Q4-19, the number of people aged 16-64 years that are outside the workforce and do not want a job has risen by 525,000 (1.3% of the 16-64 age population). This **largely reflects increases in long-term sickness** (roughly 320,000 people) and retirement (90,000), Image
3) “The share of the 16-64 who are outside the workforce and do not want a job because of long-term sickness is a record high, with an especially sharp rise among women—much of this rise in inactivity due to long-term sickness reflects side effects of the pandemic, eg Long Covid”

🧵 on repeat infections, negative lateral flow & #PCR tests, and the use of #COVID19 antibody tests. An n=1 experience #OmicronVariant #LongCovid #MedTwitter #TeamGP #psychtwitter #LongCovidKids #COVIDisAirborne #CovidIsNotOver 1/n
I had acute #COViD19 in Nov 2020, PCR +ve. Developed #LongCovid a month after. Had one dose #Pfizer Feb ‘21 which gave me new symptoms. Out of interest I had my anti-spike antibodies done May ‘21- they were above the upper limit the assay could measure 2/n
With the passage of time my antibodies dwindled. I had them rechecked in Dec 2021- both nucleocapsid & spike antibodies were below the protective limit. Therefore I had no protective antibodies. 3/n

I am over @IDSAInfo and @HIVMA. #IDWeek does a plenary featuring two people who have downplayed the severity of the pandemic in kids, played fast-and-loose with the science of mitigation efforts, called #Omicron mild? Such cack. Irresponsible. In a pandemic no less.
Oh and NOT ONE PERSON from communities hardest hit by this garbage, this pandemic shows up in the main plenary.

"Paternalismo" e "deriva totalitaria": così il Comitato Internazionale per l'#Etica della Biomedicina sulla lettera con cui gli Ordini delle professioni sanitarie denunciano al Ministro #Speranza le proteste attuate dagli iscritti contrari all'#obbligovaccinale.
Nel duro parere,
si denuncia che se la richiesta provocasse l’effetto di tacitare per via legislativa le opinioni dissenzienti all’interno degli Ordini, sarebbe inevitabile prender atto di una deriva totalitaria in Italia e si chiede che la lettera sia pubblicamente censurata dal Ministro della
Salute e dal governo.
Il CIEB invita gli Ordini ad assicurare indipendenza, autonomia, responsabilità delle professioni e la salvaguardia dei #dirittiumani e dei principi etici dell’esercizio professionale, per garantire la tutela della salute individuale e collettiva; raccomanda

📍REINFECTIONS—Many variants have evolved to partially dodge immunity. Waves of reinfections—2-3 times/year may be the future of #COVID19 scientists now fear (& warned since 2020). I’m old enough to remember when others claimed reinfections impossible/…
2) The central problem is that the coronavirus has become more adept at reinfecting people. Already, those infected with the first Omicron variant are reporting second infections with the newer versions of the variant — BA.2 or BA2.12.1 in the United States, or BA.4 and BA.5.
3) Those people may go on to have third or fourth infections, even within this year, researchers said in interviews. And some small fraction may have symptoms that persist for months or years, a condition known as long Covid.

There are *millions* of people suffering at the same time with #LongCOVID without any treatments or treatment trials available.

I believe patients when they tell me they are suffering.

I don’t think we should minimize the real potential #covid has to seriously disable people.
2/ As I told @KatherineJWu the data with #LongCOVID is a mess of our own making. We refused to identify it early, give standard definitions, recognize the many phenotypes there were ie not just a respiratory illness and hospitalization wasn’t required for severe organ damage.
3/ It is infuriating that people *NOW* are saying “we really need to clarify what #LongCOVID is.”NO SHIT. We’ve needed to do that desperately for 3 years & now the infections are so widespread & uncontrolled the ability to classify them is nearly impossible…why? Great question.

The two of the best economic blogs I've been reading for years are written by brilliant, independent individuals: by Bill McBride @calculatedrisk, and by the anonymous blogger called New Deal Democrat.
The recent post by NDD about #SARSCoV2 illustrates the prevalent reasoning that led to the current policy blind alley.
"A year ago I thought that between nearly universal vaccinations & an increasing percentage of the population already infected...
the virus would wane into a BACKGROUND NUISANCE BY NOW.
No more. I am now thoroughly convinced that there will be an UNENDING SERIES of VARIANTS that will create CONTINUING WAVES of new infections and, increasingly importantly, RE-infections."

Buffalo Tops shooting; eight killed. AR-15 #2A Truth Social – You can't carry loaded #guns at #ShotShow (America's biggest gun show), #Glock, Mars-a-Lago, US Army bases, etc. (all places w/ lots of security) as they fear gun nuts!…
2/ #2A #2ndAmendment - #NRA #SCOTUS / Supreme Court, legislators, executives, etc., for open carry, concealed carry, etc., must ensure THE EXACT SAME LAWS APPLY IN THEIR OFFICES, HOMES and at all times around them, and THEY MUST HAVE NO SECURITY. That’s how the rest of us feel.
3/ Texas, Georgia, etc., have enacted or will permit carry handguns without a license or training Why stop there? How about allowing anyone to drive, do brain surgery, teach school, fly an airliner or be a cop or governor? #GunSense #2A #Idiots #Trump…

Der #RKI Wochenbericht vom 12.5.22 zusammengefasst👇🏻

Gipfel überschritten. Der Infektionsdruck bleibt trotzdem mit knapp 500.000 innerhalb der letzten Woche an das RKI übermittelten #COVID19-Fällen noch hoch.
Die dem #RKI übermittelten Fälle sind tagesaktuell auf dem Dashboard ( & als werktäglicher Situationsbericht (…) verfügbar. Ein Wochenvergleich mit aktueller Einordnung wird im Wochenbericht (immer donnerstags) dargestellt.
Im Vergleich zur Vorwoche sanken die Inzidenzen in allen Altersgruppen. Am stärksten war der Rückgang diese Woche bei den 15- bis 19-Jährigen mit 34 %, im Durchschnitt lag der Rückgang bei 21 %.

"La crise sanitaire #Covid a affecté de façon durable et importante la santé mentale de la population", résume @SantePubliqueFr dans sa dernière enquête.

Le niveau de perception de sa vie a diminué en avril, et plus de 30 % des sondés signalent un état dépressif ou anxieux.

Dans le détail, chaque indicateur de santé mentale est plus dégradé que sa valeur d'avant le #Covid.

La prévalence des pensées suicidaires est à son plus haut niveau depuis qu'elle est mesurée, en février 2021 (10,1%).

Quel que soit l'indicateur, les jeunes adultes, ceux en situation financière difficile ou fragiles psychologiquement par le passé sont les plus touchés.

Plus spécifiquement, les chômeurs rapportent plus souvent des problèmes de sommeil.

L'@ECDC_EU envisage une "augmentation significative des cas de #Covid19 dans les semaines et les mois à venir", en raison des sous-variants d'#Omicron BA.4 et BA.5.

Ceux-ci devraient progressivement remplacer BA.2 en Europe.

1/8 ⤵️…
BA.4 et BA.5, issus de la famille #Omicron, "font l’objet d’une surveillance renforcée sur la base de leur profil génétique".

Ils possèdent notamment les mutations L452R et F486V, qui pourraient les rendre plus transmissibles et/ou échappant davantage à l'immunité.

BA.5, notamment, a un avantage de transmission sur BA.2 estimé autour de 13%.

BA.4 et BA.5 sont désormais largement majoritaires en Afrique du Sud, confrontée à une cinquième vague. 👇

🔥 I have now analyzed all-cause mortality (acm) from many countries around the world by flu season, and I cannot find any correlation to vaccination!

> Here are the results, starting with 49 countries for which data is available.

1/n 🧵#Covid #Covid #Covid19 #Corona #Vaccine
Same chart with country labels.
> R2=0.0005; p<0.05 stat. sign.
> This means the introduction of vaccination appears to have no significant effect on acm.
> Countries essentially experienced the same level of excess mortality in flu season 21/22 as in 20/21.
Let's look at the US states. Same result.
> R2=0.14, p<0.05 stat. sign.
> Slight increase of acm in the states that have more vaccination.
