2+ years into #COVID19 ,

which we have all suffered through collectively and hugely,

institutions are failing monstrously,

at protecting children,

whom you take more care with,

not less.


What’s changed?

Is it milder?


“Omicron as severe as other COVID variants -large U.S. study”……

Can kids <5 get a 💉?


Boosters 5-11?


Can you still get #LongCovidKids even if 💉?


=need more protections
So do we still need to prevent

transmission & infection

in PS & daycares

b/c more care with kids

not less

b/c #LongCovidKids



“Of all the myths associated with COVID-19, 1 of the earliest was that the virus is harmless for children”…

Crap—Monkeypox is likely aerosol airborne. Study indicates monkeypox is aerosol stable for up to 90 HOURS and remain infective during that time. I pray we’ve learned our lesson with #COVIDisAirborne and don’t repeat the droplet vs airborne 2 year nonsense.…
2) to be clear, this is a study done in an artificial chamber with device that can aerosolize virus particles. It simulates respiratory aerosols but not “real world” per se. But we should take PRECAUTIONARY PRINCIPLE- just like we should have from the beginning with coronavirus.
3) why all the talk about #monkeypox? Well the CDC and the UK health agencies are worried about an expanding outbreak in Europe. It’s community transmission now— and they can’t link all the cases together. See thread 🧵 below 👇

Looking forward to the case study on #OriginOfCovid - how a small group of scientists managed to create a mass illusion of scientific consensus via groupthink and connections with prominent science journalists/writers.
Agreed that the public needs to know that scientific uncertainty prevails for some period while data/evidence is collected.

Surprised during the pandemic that some of our top experts don't seem to know this and try to manufacture scientific certainty.
I'm not sure that #SciComm folks could've predicted that some of the worst misinformation during the pandemic would've come from experts instead of mis/disinformants.

🧵 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’m with @Billius27

How can you NOT have #maskmandate in schools & daycares

And have elsewhere?


@CPHO_Canada = #LongCovid as high as 50%

=No treatment/cure

More care with kids
Not less



Many said

No #maskmandate
=bad idea for kids’ safety

Proven true

Re/infection=more #LongCovidKids risk

=no treatment/cure

@CPHO_Canada as high as 50%

#Omicron NOT mild…

H/T @MerlinofCanada @MoriartyLab
@LauraMiers 🧵


Voices=spoke out against removing #maskmandate for the safety of kids

We need those voices to keep speaking out

As proven true

🧵 If the use of airborne #PPE & improving air quality in healthcare settings are to be ‘optional’ & ‘a matter of personal choice’, then we should give strong consideration to applying the same rule to the following #MedTwitter #MedEd #TeamGP 1/n
1. Handwashing before, between & after patients (& audits of it)
2. Plastic gloves & aprons
3. ‘Bare below the elbows’
4. Jewellery
5. Hair above the collar
6. Mandatory training
If you are recoiling in horror because
1. ‘Airborne transmission of COVID is controversial’
2. ‘The above are established evidence-based practices’
3. ‘COVID is mild, we can’t avoid it, we have to learn to live with it, we’re all vaccinated now anyway’,

@TRyanGregory Toxic hubristic aggressive persecution & denialism based on faulty dogma in ID world is a feature, not a bug. It’s been going on for centuries. The road is littered w examples

John Snow - water
Ignaz Semmelweis - hands
Lister & Pasteur - germs
@TRyanGregory 1900s
Wells & Wells, Riley - airborne risk & mitigation

Li, Filiatrault, Campbell - SARS1 airborne

Morawska, MacIntyre - Resp viruses airborne

Boulder, Jimenez, Prather, Marr - SARS2 airborne
@TRyanGregory In a keynote presentation at last week SARS1 outbreaks in Toronto were blamed squarely on droplet dogma & toxic relations between Toronto ID world & everyone else in sharp contrast to open-mindedness & collaborative relations between BC ID & others. 🤷‍♂️

What I have learned since being unwell myself has destroyed any faith I had in my profession’s leaders. I used to think that deep down most senior clinicians acted because they had the best interests of the patient, their colleagues & society at heart. That illusion is gone. 1/n
Be it the treatment of those with #MECFS #LongCovid #Fibromyalgia #POTS #MCAS #EDS #HSD #PansPandas #Lyme #FQtoxicity #vaccineinjuries & other so-called invisible illnesses; 2/n
the refusal of senior medics to stand up & protect colleagues, the public & schoolchildren from airborne spread of #SARSCoV2 as they are too afraid to displease those in the ivory towers of infection control, @UKHSA & @NHSE management & @UKgovcomms; 3/n

Note, they are a non-profit, or not-for-profit, etc
Or some similar structure. Seems B-Corp is for profit but for social causes. We do not have those in Canada.

Anyway point is, for social benefit and cleans air.…
Or you can build a Corsi-Rosenthal box w/ a box fan and 5 filters for cost of the materials and time to build it.

Plans are free.

If gov won't do anything, we will.

Φανταστείτε ένα μέλος της Επιτροπής να είχε την εντιμότητα να πει:
- κάναμε λάθος που σας είπαμε να πλένετε χέρια αντί να φοράτε FFP2
- κάναμε λάθος που σας είπαμε ότι με το εμβόλιο θα τελειώσει η πανδημία
- κάναμε λάθος που σας είπαμε ότι είναι ασφαλές να μολυνθούν τα παιδιά σας
- κάναμε λάθος που δε σας είπαμε ότι ο SARS-CoV-2 αφήνει αναπηρία #LongCovid
- κάναμε λάθος που δε σας εξηγήσαμε τον τρόπο μετάδοσης του ιού #COVIDisAirborne
- κάναμε λάθος που δε ρίξαμε βάρος στη δημιουργία υποδομών εξαερισμού/φίλτρανσης του αέρα σε όλους τους δημόσιους χώρους
- κάναμε λάθος που δεν σας εξηγήσαμε ότι είστε ευάλωτοι όλοι, όχι μόνο οι ηλικιωμένοι

BC CDC - Centre for Disease Collusion / Death Creation
May 4, 2022…

Are you fucking kidding me?!!!!

#COVIDisAirborne #bcpoli
Uh, BC Centre for Disease Collusion / Death Creation says you are infectious for 10 (TEN) days after onset of symptoms.

So we have a bunch of infectious people running around school & work. I mean, we do anyway, because no one can get tested 🙃…

"Dr Henry - there have been numerous research reports lately flagging very serious outcomes from COVID infection in children & pregnant people. Can you comment on the following studies?"

It's March 790, 2020. TL; DR. I'm leaving the #Covid19 ward again wondering why, how & if we will look forward to a day when we can (confidently) say "it'll be better next year". A 🧵 on what a "new normal" is & when it might happen. 1/
First a look back on the history of major pandemics. Even w/ a fraction of our present day resources in medicine & health infrastructure, the flu pandemic of 1918 had its share of similarities to this one because, well - humans are humans. 2/
1918 Flu was due to an H1N1 variant w/ Avian gene influence but the origin was not known till well after infecting 500 M people (1/3 of global population) & killing at least 50 M too. Doubt of origin fueled doubts of existence & potential threat. 3/

Happy Tuesday,

With warmer weather, I am looking forward to your announcement that #safelunch & #safesnacks are moving outside.

Because you can.

Why wouldn’t you?


Please make a #SafeLunch & snack plan outdoors,

b/c you can

Why wouldn’t you?

Thank YOU for being a part of my morning routine for 2+ years.☕️📈😊

But this is the end of my 10am #COVID19 updates...
I’m still closely following the stats (especially wastewater levels, & hosp/ICU) & may still post info periodically, but I can’t commit to a schedule anymore.

Also, my data sheet is so big that it barely loads!🤯
I’m so inspired by the kind & caring people here - from the beginning, you have helped to share knowledge to keep each other safe.💨😷#COVIDisAirborne

At a time when we are physically apart, you created a community to support one another. 🫂

So thank you again, my friends.

Safe Lunch has always been a concern,

and has never been properly resolved.

It has been an honour to walk alongside my friend & colleague of 21 years @BinitaKane & her daughter Jasmin on their courageous & inspiring journey. #LongCovid in adults children is real & serious. There are treatments available- sadly only for a fortunate few #TeamClots 1/n
(Everything I say is with the express permission of @BinitaKane). Jasmin is not the only child with #LongCovid who has been shown to have microclots & hyperactivated platelets. They are a consistent finding in kids & adults who have travelled for treatment to Germany & SA 2/n
Globally 100m are affected by this vile illness. In the U.K. alone this figure is estimated to be 1.8m, with 2/3rds reporting an adverse impact on their daily activities. 1% of primary & 2.7% of secondary school children fulfilled the criteria for #LongCovidKids 3/n

Vaccines Mandated but Not Masks in New Hollywood COVID Safety Agreement…
Won’t end well.

Won’t end.
It’s weird Bc music/ TV business protocols have been REALLY good. Lots of testing, hepa filters, KN95s or better required. Hollywood knows #COVIDisAirborne.

THIS ⬆️ , however, makes NO sense and is a huge mistake.

Slides & words from my @OSHA_DOL testimony on April 28, 2022. I really hope it helps as there is no excuse to not fully protect healthcare & essential workers from airborne transmission of this virus. All workers deserve full protection. #COVIDisAirborne

No magic outsoors.

Now that GBD folk made SARS-CoV-2 highly transmissible we see more outdoor transmission.

It was happening before, just as low probability. Now it's higher because GBD folk made it much better virus.

BREAKING—US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has just tested positive for #COVID19. He recently attended the @whca dinner event with 2600+ people, where reporters from many media outlets have also now tested positive. ➡️ This Vf headline was on point. #WHCD #COVIDisAirborne Image
2) We epidemiologists and aerosol scientists have warned about the poor ventilation and high density being a bad setup for almost guaranteed transmission at @whca dinner if anyone in the audience had subclinical (undetected) virus. And indeed the superspreading event happened.
3) ’The nation’s most distinguished super spreader event’. @Trevornoah was spot on in his opening lines of his #WHCD speech.

Wild that a parent called my school on Friday to excuse their kid from a pep rally but made sure it was still okay for them to go to prom.

Teachers & students at Prom have been out this week w/ #COVID19.

Our Prom was a super spreader event, for our staff & students. #LCPS
I also cannot fathom the level of selfish entitlement that would give someone the nerve to send their kid to Prom knowing their kid was positive for #Covid.

I’m so tired of my own long term health & that of my children being put at risk because of the entitlement in Loudoun.
I can’t tell if it’s because they’re selfish assholes or if they don’t realize #COVIDisAirborne but my guess is a healthy dose of the former with at least a little bit of the latter.

#LCPS has dropped all masking & mitigation & won’t change even though numbers are rising again.
