FORMER HEAD OF MI6, RICHARD #DEARLOVE, EXPECTS THE PUBLIC TO:
1. Forget all about his faked #WMD evidence which led to over a million people being killed in the 2003 #Iraq war and occupation.
AND
2. Believe in his anti-China, evidence-free, Covid-19 Wuhan lab leak conspiracy theory.
"President #Biden's intelligence service order relating to the Wuhan lab leak theory was issued the same day that Prime Minister Boris# Johnson's former chief adviser, Dominic #Cummings,
gave evidence before a parliamentary committee in which he confirmed a government policy to allow tens of thousands to die from #Covid-19."
Britain's intelligence services are “assisting” #US investigations into whether Covid-19 was “leaked” from a Chinese laboratory,

This is a message to those threatening to illegally release or suggest that they'll illegally release *my* sealed Pers Military Records...

Please lookup the National Secrets Act and how it applies to Veterans upon their completion of service before any chuds do anything stupid.
Active duties that may be considering sharing sealed info? National Secrets Act applies to you currently, along with the #NatDefAct violating it could be used as Grounds for your Dishonourable Discharge/"Drum-out" or even potential #Treason charges.

Choose your actions wisely.
One such goof's already committed to writing about me: "...his recruiter should have been shot in the face..."

That was a folly committed by a long-retired Artillery NCM from Quebec.

While the "numbers" are plummeting & horror news about #India has fallen silent, some media flood us with news that 🇮🇳#Ivermectin has been removed from the list of #Covid_19-#therapeutics.

1/ Shared few insights emerging from community-based #COVID care that some communities have begun in #Adivasi populations in #Chamarajanagar with support from #ZillaPanchayat in live video interaction with #Karnataka #GramPanchayats thanks to @gokRDPR
2/ #COVID19 care needs to be rational & #evidence-based but also respectful & dignified; these are not aspects we have done well with in our #HealthSystem & hence need special attention;
3/ Dignified & respectful care requires an awareness of diverse socio-economic & cultural contexts at individual, household, neighbourhood & societal levels; we haven't substantively engaged with (#caste #gender #disability #sexuality #privacy )-aware care at systemic level

1/ Joining some wonderful people from what I am seeing as a diverse group of researchers at the #EditorialBoard of @PLOSGPH; journal has given itself the tall order of “addresses inequities in public health and makes impactful research accessible to all… (1/n) #Threads
2/ In words of @paimadhu "the journal will amplify the voices of underrepresented and historically excluded communities and prioritize equity, diversity, and inclusion at all levels"; I am highly skeptical of this,
3/ yet I am thrilled that a #PublicHealth journal would give itself such a vision; #Knowledge #Science #Evidence all reproduce the same kind of social hierarchies that drive unfair accumulation of resources in our society

Will we EVER learn about #PublicHealth?
3rd wave “expert” committee is nearly-ALL #Pediatricians (to keep Devi Shetty’s non-#evidence-based assertion on #children will be entirely affected), #AllMale #Manel, nearly-all #clinicians headed by #PrivateSector #Cardiologist
I request this committee members:
- Please QUESTION Devi Shetty’s credentials to lead this
- Please hold to account #Manel #AllMale membership
- Please include #RuralHealth #CommunityHealth #PublicHealth
- Expertise is NOT only CLINICAL; also social; include grounded voices
Unfortunately no time & bandwidth; but putting this out there
We need:
- campaign for a DIVERSE expert committee including #Citizen #CommunityEngagement #Dalit #Adivasi voices
- Devi Shetty’s position as Chair is NOT tenable; appoint a #PublicHealth expert in his place

Our #MentalHealth system uses force on at least half of all inpatients.

One ‘justification’ I’ve heard from psychs is this:

“If we didn’t use compulsory treatment we’d be neglecting people.”

Is that so?

Let me call out this dreadful argument on #neglect... (a thread)

1/7 Graphic with text. It says: “if we don’t hurt you, we’
Check your #paternalism.

Thinking you know what’s best for others is paternalism. How can you possibly know? Many of us have healed without you.

Try trusting that your patients are the experts on their own lives.

That’s not neglect, it’s respect.

2/7
Check your #hypocrisy.

The mental health system is already a master of neglect.

You ignore trauma, abuse, homelessness, poverty & other social issues.

You don’t offer talking therapies, peer support or crisis respite. Just meds & shocks.

That’s actually neglect. Sheesh.

How can places use the Levelling Up Fund to deliver economic growth?
@DanniMason11's latest blog summarises the key takeaways from @whatworksgrowth's #evidence briefing on Levelling Up Fund interventions and impacts.
A short thread 🔽
whatworksgrowth.org/blog/the-level…
🔹 Levelling up and transport investment…
Evidence shows transport projects are one of the best eligible interventions to result in positive economic outcomes, although impacts are highly context-dependent.
🔹 Levelling up and physical regeneration…
Evidence shows that the physical regeneration of public spaces is unlikely to deliver much economic growth, but can have positive impacts for residents’ quality of life.

Announcement from @fordnation sank my heart today. As an ER doctor, person of color and #Scarborough native, I feel defeated 😢. The measures are not going to get wave 3 under control. #BIPOC #ERdoc @SHNcares @torontolife @JustinTrudeau @SCMirror 1/
When I landed as an #immigrant in #Canada, my life started in #Scarborough. My parents (#heros) struggled to find jobs that matched their education. That didn't stop them from working hard / hustling even if it meant 2 jobs at times to keep bills paid and food on the table. 2/
My family lived in an apt building that had mostly racialized/middle-low income families (#affordability). Not much social distancing when large crowds wait for elevators (#EssentialWorkers) or use the shared laundry facilities. This pandemic brings back those vivid memories 3/

A #thread on our recent paper in @PLOSNTDs examining ecological #evidence-base for #DiseaseControl management practices for #KyasanurForestDisease #AcademicTwitter #Scicomm #OneHealth; paper led by @SarahBurthe from @MonkeyFever_ consortium
#Diseasecontrol strategies originate through endorsements by Governments/academia/authorities; they're often not field-tested robustly; even when they are, evidence is limited to one sector (cf. #OneHealth #Intersectoral approaches);
#publichealth approaches ought to be contextual & their effectiveness ought to be evaluated, yet strategies for disease control often spread through word of mouth and are sometimes untested;

At #GlobalScienceCongress #ScientificThinkingAndAction we talked about the relationships between relatability, trust, #scicomm, communicating about pseudoscience, and changing people's minds.
Regarding all the above, the last one, I'd like to share a story.
Thread
It was the eve of the third and last day at our country's largest #science festival held by @Akademie_ved_CR.
I was at our skeptic organization's stand, when an older gentleman approached me, among the last visitors there.
"I'm an engineer", he introduced himself.
"Do you believe in #aliens?" he continued, without pause.
I smile and reply, my voice box tired: "We can't rule out their existence, the Universe is a big place."
The engineer leans over my table, wagging his eyebrows conspiratorially: "But do YOU believe that they are among us?"

1/A retired #oncology professor from a Govt. College. Now dabbles in #Ayurveda. Runs an 'ashram' in Kerala to 'treat' #cancer patients. He refers a patient with BCLC-C stage liver cancer 2me. A nice letter 4 further management. Patient has advanced cancer
Systemic therapy option+
2/ I spent 50 mins with patient/family - discuss prognosis, comfort care - the works. Once patient left 4som blood tests, I tell family, separately, regarding end of life care, once the time comes. They wer sad but contend. Very crunched 4money. So best option - they cudnt afford
3/ Best approved option for advanced liver cancer is Atezo+Bevaci - too expensive. So they tuk next good option - Lenvatinib - affordable for them. I sent a detailed letter with plans, along with patient son, to the evidence-based turned #ayurveda oncology professor.

🚨 "We indicated a willingness to [hand over documents to the committee], we then had correspondence from the @ScotGov who only would only agree [to us doing so] if we gave the documents to them [first] so they could – as they put it – 'make suitable redactions'."

🤯#ProceduralUnfairness
"The Investigating Officer (IS) presents the case for the prosecution before the defendant is even informed about the procedure. Then the [accused], instead of being able to present their own case, has to give that case to the IS to present on his behalf."
🤯#ProceduralUnfairness
"The @PermSecScot decision not to allow me any contact with civil servants or even have documents (like my own diaries)."

Why would Civil Service use a procedure, to then hand over to a political party for sanction?

"Highly questionable!"

Lockdowns don’t save lives and #Sweden is all the proof you need

History will record Covid-induced #lockdowns as the product of #pseudoscientific ideology, manifestations of an unprecedented #masshysteria and drummed-up #fear.

#Coronavirus #Lockdown

The lack of #evidence #lockdowns actually worked is a world scandal

There is still not a shred of real proof that the planet's reckless stay-at-home experiment made any difference
