The #Zionist Home Secretary Priti Patel warned last night that ministers 'will not allow those who break the rules to reverse the hard-won progress made by the law-abiding majority'.
#Covidhoax2020 #COVID19…
Patel has zionism written all over her. Patel has cited Thatcher as her political hero and has described herself as a "massive Thatcherite". She is an officer of Conservative Friends of Israel.😉 Thatcher Recalled With Respect and 'Great Pride'…
My name is Priti Patel and this is my Israeli handler Mark Regev 😨

Over last few months many mental health practitioners like me have received requests about grief counseling due to death in family (due to Covid 19)

A short thread on helping kids deal with early days of grief.
First of all - all bereaved persons do not require grief counselling.
Culture and traditions help us deal with loss of loved ones in most situations and then there are time and life , the great healers.

So please don't rush in with psychological help on day one.
When death is untimely i.e. a person who dies earlier than old age, it can get complicated.

Many factors add to trauma of grief in pandemic -

1. Trauma of finding treatment for Covid19
2. possibility of immediate family being sick or in isolation complicates things.

#HeroesAct2 — LiveTweeting Legislation

Like many #smallbiz attorneys and advocates, I’m spending most of tonight and tomorrow reading over the Democrats newly-released #COVID19 #stimulus package. As I review, I’ll share some insights and discoveries. Stay tuned!
Congress proposes three #setasides for #PPP funding:

(1) at least 10% for #smallbiz with fewer than 10 employees OR for certain loans made to biz in low- and mod-income areas

(2) < 30% for nonprofits, housing coops, and hotels/restaurants

(3) < 50% for supplemental PPP loans.
Also similarly reserves the lesser of 25% or $15B of the unused #PPP loans appropriations for loans by Community Financial Institutions.

#Covid19 thread: So the global death toll — which is certainly an underestimate — has topped 1M deaths.
10 months ago we had no inkling a new coronavirus was soon about to change life on earth for possibly years.
This is so not just like seasonal flu. Image
2. In fact, this pandemic is on track to be the worst the world has seen since the 1918 Spanish Flu. Deaths to #Covid19 have far surpassed the 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic, which is thought to have killed fewer than a quarter million people worldwide.… Image
3. The #Covid19 pandemic, which is nowhere near over, has killed at least as many people was the 1968 H3N2 pandemic, estimated to have killed 1M people around the world & 100,000 Americans. (Covid has already doubled that figure.)… Image

1) Three months after reopening bars in the #pandemic, Premier François Legault is closing them again in the greater Montreal area and two other regions. He said he's doing so for the sake of our schools. In this thread, I'll suggest what more needs to be done to protect schools.
2) In placing Montreal, Quebec City and Chaudière-Apallaches on red alert, Legault imposed a series of new restrictions. But he spoke of no new measures to shield the province’s more than 3,000 public and private schools from #COVID19. That must change quickly.
3) The experience of other countries is demonstrating that schools can become major sources of #COVID19 outbreaks. In France, one-third of new clusters under investigation have been traced to schools and universities. Image

El desarrollo reducido de COVID-19 en niños en comparación con los adultos proporciona algunas pistas tentadoras sobre patogénesis y transmisibilidad del SARS-Cov-2.
El coronavirus que está asociado con resfriados comunes en los niños puede ofrecer cierta protección, debido a la inmunidad humoral de reacción cruzada y la inmunidad de células T entre los coronavirus comunes y el SARS-CoV-2.

THREAD: This is SSG Jason Lowe. He was 27, a top performer within his @82ndABNDiv unit and had just graduated 2nd in his class in the Army's Advanced Leader Course.

Four days after graduation, he took his own life inside his Fayetteville, N.C. apartment. Image
SSG Ryan Graves found him.

"He wanted to be the best," he told me. "He probably was one of the best."
The @82ndABNDiv has lost ten paratroopers to suicide this year. That number stood at four 2019 and six in 2018. Image

Protecting the health and wellbeing of Ontarians is our top priority. On September 19th, we took immediate action to respond to the rise in #COVID19 cases by setting new limits for certain social gatherings and organized public events across Ontario.…
Last week, upon the advice of Ontario's public health officials, we tightened measures to help keep Ontarians safe and avoid future lockdowns by limiting the potential for exposure in locations where the current risk of transmission is higher.…
It remains critically important for everyone to continue following public health advice in order to stop the transmission of COVID-19 and protect each other.

Almost a week ago, I was honored to receive one of a very few @CDCgov grants to study the #publichealth approach to firearm injury prevention.

I've been waiting to tweet about it, because I wanted to create the best possible tweet.

But that will never happen. So instead:
Some background:

I started doing this work because people told me it couldn't be done. "Firearm injury prevention was pointless" or "partisan" or not fundable. Thanks to the Dickey Amendment, the CDC hadn't funded firearm injury research since *1996*. Image

Great article from a great science writer on the complexities of the latest science on #COVID19 in kids.

TL/DR: it's complicated, the kids are (mostly) alright, but there's so much still to learn.
My takeaway: we still don't actually know the rate at which kids get infected or infect others.

BUT- that isn't reason to close schools (assuming that we're keeping community transmission under control).

It IS a reason to make sure that kids & staff are wearing masks, always.
My fave quote from @jenkinshelen:" “We have hundreds of natural experiments going on at the moment across this country,” she said. “And it’s so sad that we are not collecting that data systematically, because we could learn so much about what works and what doesn’t.”

Ivet Bahar and our labs with the brilliant scientists in both labs worked very hard for this paper.… 1- SARS-CoV-2 spike harbors a high affinity site for TCR β-chain binding, which contains an insertion, P681RRA684, unique to SARS2. @EricTopol #COVID19 Image
2- Comparison to other β-CoV S sequences showed that SARS-CoV-2 S is distinguished by the existence of this 4-residue insertion, PRRA, preceding the S1/S2 cleavage site (R685-S686 peptide bond) (Fig.2A). The insertion PRRA and sequence similarities to those of neurotoxins Fig.2D. Image
3-Further examination of the motif near PRRA reveals close structural similarity to the Staphylococcus Enterotoxin B i.e. SEB superantigen as well as sequence similarities to neurotoxins and a viral SAg. All IVIG batches contain high anti SEB neutralizing Abs Image

Rife said, "In reality, it is not the bacteria themselves that produce the disease, but the chemical constituents of these micro-organisms enacting upon the unbalanced cell metabolism of the human body that in actuality produce the disease. We also believe if the...
metabolism of the human body is perfectly balanced or poised, it is susceptible to no disease."
    After isolating the cancer virus, his next step was to destroy it. He did this with his frequency instruments—over and over again. And then he did it with experimental animals,
inoculating them, watching the tumours grow, and then killing the virus in their bodies with the same frequency instruments tuned to the same "BX" frequency. ROYAL RAYMOND RIFE & THE CANCER CURE THAT WORKED! by Barry Lynes

For the first @realDonaldTrump and @JoeBiden debate tomorrow, we asked 3,200 business leaders at @BusinessM4A what they wanted to hear from the 2 candidates. What they said will probably stun the political & media establishment (1/9)
Businesses are worried. They don't see a federal plan to defeat #COVID19. Many remain partially shut down from the pandemic. They've laid off or furloughed workers while still paying for health insurance. Many are broke-or almost there (2/9)
They're desperate for leadership, solutions & answers. They want to know about the PLANS to fight #COVID19, fix our broken health care system & restart an economy that is mired in high unemployment, low wages & workers without health care (3/9)

Inpatient and ICU data from 5/2 - 28/9 (inc) for NI - #COVID19 Image
Masks were made mandatory on 10/8 to "stop the spread" of #COVID19. Again we see evidence that they don't work for the intended desire under such circumstances. Image
Dates above were incorrect. They are corrected here.. Image

I have been asked by @TalkerTeacher to do a #bced #thread on going to school in #Denmark during the age of #COVID19. I have done this before but it was suggested it would be good to go over it again and cover off anything new. I will begin by setting the stage.
First off B.C. and #Denmark can’t be compared in an apples to apples way. There are some drastic differences both societally, Denmark is a social welfare state, and how the school system itself is structured. Let’s start there. #bced
While #bced is a K-12 system #Denmark begins with grade 0 then runs to grade 9, primary school, then things get tricky. After grade 9 most Danish students take a year off or go to efterskole, schools specializing in one year music, sports, art etc. focused programs

#COVID19 related deaths - graphs from Sweden and N.Ireland. Same pattern, same peaks, same drop-off. One country went into biblical hysteria the other didn't. Image
Let's add in the UK as a whole to see how that pattern compares. Again, same pattern, same peaks, same drop-off. Image
Now let's add Germany. Image

This is the #DemPartyPlatform for 2020.This section is called: ACHIEVING UNIVERSAL, AFFORDABLE, QUALITY HEALTH CARE
Only one party has a specific plan for ensuring EVERY American will have access to quality healthcare as a human right..the other fights to TAKE IT AWAY. 1/10 Image
Overturning the #AffordableCareAct remains a central plank of the Republican Party (invisible) platform. The difference in values between the two parties on this life-or-death issue could not be more stark. 2/11 #DemPartyPlatform #healthcare Image
The pandemic has made this difference in values painfully,brutally clear. Pres Trump has repeatedly downplayed the threat of the coronavirus, bullied governors for enacting life-saving public health measures, &left our frontline health care heroes w/o the equipment they need 3/11 Image

#Covid19 . CDC.

Use máscaras con dos o más capas.

Use la máscara sobre la nariz y la boca y fíjela debajo de la barbilla.

Las máscaras deben ser usadas por personas mayores de dos años.
Las mascarillas NO deben ser usadas por niños menores de dos años, personas que tienen problemas para respirar o personas que no pueden quitarse la mascarilla sin ayuda.

NO usar máscaras destinadas a trabajadores de la salud, por ejemplo, los respiradores N95.
No se recomienda el uso de protectores faciales. La evaluación de estas cubiertas faciales está en curso; se desconoce la efectividad en este momento.

To illustrate why #COVID19 PCR testing is flawed, and why we need transparency on cycles from positive tests, here is a hypothetical: say someone took a $1 bill from me and claimed I was distributing cocaine. Most paper bills have over 0.1 micrograms.… Image
To help determine whether I was in possession of cocaine, my accuser has a machine that can multiply any trace amounts found on a dollar bill by two every cycle it ran. You could set it to any number of cycles - but let's say 40, to match the CDC guideline for #COVID19.
So, multiplying 0.1 micrograms by two 40 times is roughly 110,000 grams, or 110 kilograms, or 242 pounds. So the tiny, trace amounts of cocaine found on my $1 bill is now about the same weight as former NFL linebacker Luke Kuechly. I would be going to jail for a long time. Image

I just had my first COVID-19 test done today in Prince George's County, MD. I have no symptoms, and have been seriously quarantining and socially distancing since March - only masked outdoor activities in small groups, no travel, no eating out, etc. A THREAD. #COVID19
I am also very immunocompromised, including having a high risk of inflammation-related disorders and asthma, among other things (which overlap with COVID-19) which has made me extra nervous. ok, COVID-19 testing pros:

No line!
Drive-up COVID test!
Testers were really nice!
I got tested with @keondra. We stayed in the car with our masks on. I was driving, so we had two people asking us questions; one person asking her things, and one person asking me things. my tester starts by asking me for ID! I overhear keondra's tester asking the same

I am pleased to announce our most recent advance in our #COVID19 testing ecosystem – one that will support the continued safe and sensible reopening of America, and particularly our K-12 schools.
The Administration and @HHSGov will distribute approximately 100 million @AbbottNews #BinaxNOW tests to governors of states and territories, beginning with a total of 6.5 million tests this week!
The #BinaxNOW test detects the presence of #COVID19 antigen within 15 minutes and is easy to administer. The test also comes w/ a free companion smart phone app called NAVICA to provide test results to the patient. Image

WOWZERS—Today @DrTedros announced that WHO will be providing 120,000,000 rapid antigen #COVID19 tests (15-30 min results) to millions in low & middle income countries! A partnership w/ @AfricaCDC @CHAI_health @FINDdx, @gatesfoundation @GlobalFund @UNITAID.
2) Lots of questions: what are rapid antigen tests? How are they different? What do they mean for us? All answered in this thread 🧵
3) Full details from WHO about the new rapid antigen testing initiative. It’s is a special accelerator and funding partnership that will allow cheap access to these tests.…
