EXCLUSIVE: I interview lead author of Cochrane's #mask review, Tom Jefferson

He condemns the pandemic’s overnight experts, the multitude of scientifically baseless health policies & opens up about his disappointment in Cochrane… @VPrasadMDMPH @davidemccune
This review comes off the back of 3yrs of governments mandating the use of face masks in the community, schools & hospital settings. Just last month, the WHO upgraded its guidelines advising “anyone in a crowded, enclosed, or poorly ventilated space” to wear a mask.
Jefferson says "governments completely failed to do the right thing and demand better evidence. At the beginning of the pandemic, there were some voices who said masks did not work and then suddenly the narrative changed."

When the BPS parent group @FamCOSa asked to #BringBackMasks after Thanksgiving break and test before returning to school, the Boston Board of Public Health said they prefer to listen to the experts.
You'll never guess what happened next...
The MA wastewater data shot up. But we never could have predicted that would happen…
Or maybe we could have...
Perhaps they missed the study from @NEJM (prominent medical publication) that shows that #masksmandates in schools decrease #COVID19 cases, reducing absences among students and staff? Funny that, it's based on data from #Boston…

Plain text:

#Children and/or #teenagers are not the 'drivers' of the 'infections'. Not even day care centers or schools.

The drivers of the #infections, currently #RSV, #influenza and #corona #SARSCoV2 , are #adults in the western world. They go to restaurants, clubs, bars,
football stadiums, concerts, and always without #FFP2 !

Because in the western world, wearing a #mask is seen as something bad and is accordingly badmouthed. It is conveyed how, for example, only very #anxious people would wear a mask. Or wearing a mask is exaggerated, after all
everything is #harmless and #mild. Practically just a #sniffle! (No, #RSV, #influenza + #corona #SARSCoV2 are not harmless #colds)!

So if you are looking for someone to #blame for the infection, you should pause for a moment and think about your own #behavior.

1/🧵 COVID Screws up sex & making babies

Face it, this virus invades our lives – even making babies.

The ACE2 receptor is in testicles, ovary, uterus, vagina & placenta

Pregnancy is affected, sperm counts are reduced, impotence occurs.

2/ Pregnant women are wise to be afraid of COVID.

Thankfully, we have new data to show that Omicron causes 75% less critical illness than Delta & 43% less preterm birth. Less still birth.

All this despite Omicron being way more contagoius.
3/ Since early in the pandemic, men have been complaining of impotence.

Now we have more compelling long-term data as far as 1 year out.

N=200 study shows the median number of sperm down by >50% vs. men without Covid.

WHY are AB schoolboards not announcing #mask #mandates? Need is clear (75% of @EPSBNews schls in outbreak rn, PICUs overflowing). Effectiveness of mandates is clear (below). CM v Alberta shows min of ed does not have power to prohibit mandates. Window of opportunity is RIGHT NOW.
Is there some obvious & common-sense operational reason why indoor mask mandate in schls until wave subsides wd make situation worse for kids? If so, I can't think of it (beyond not wanting to displease insect overlords - which is a non-reason).

Bin in der 3. oder 4. Woche wo ich mir gedanklich Coronafrei nehme. Nur ab und an bei bestimmten Accounts über News und Erkenntnisse nachlesen, aber keine Studien, keine Zahlen, nichts. Im Alltag: 3x die Woche testen, Masken tragen und die Rückverfolgung im Blick haben. Mehr
nicht. Und das tut gut. Aber ich arbeite im Background. Still und leise: niemals.

Und irgendwann dann werden auch die letzten Deppen erkennen: das Virus bleibt, der Mensch nicht. Es sei denn, er trägt Maske und schützt sich. Die letzten Deppen sind die, die sagen "Das Virus wird
doch eh für immer bleiben, also kann ich auch wieder mein (altes) gewohntes Leben leben"! Evolutionäres Denken = Ungenügend!

Da der Virus bleiben wird, muss der Mensch sich Anpassen, sofern er das denn überleben will.

In 5 Jahren, vllt auch schon in 2, vielleicht aber auch

Dear ON,

Stop waiting for those who are behaving the way they are with #IStandWithCUPE 😷 to tell you to put #Masks back on to prevent airborne spread of airborne viruses.

A non-exhaustive🧵 of their behaviour so far:…

“increasing evidence that SARS-CoV-2 can cause immune dysregulation… a potential increase in acquired impaired immunity in the ON pop could have significant impact on the incidence & assoc burden of infectious diseases“…

Know someone having a baby soon? CONGRATULATIONS! 🍼🍼🍼

As hospitals drop universal COVID protections, these are my top 7 tips for protecting unmaskable un-vaxable newborns from #nosocomial (hospital-acquired) COVID.

What did I miss?

THREAD of Top 7 Tips 🧵
Tip #1 – Determine your #mask rules. Some parents require staff to #N95. Compliance would vary by region/hospital. Prep for what you’ll say if staff don’t comply.

With our newborn twins, we supplied medical staff w/free N95s & tests. Nobody wanted N95s; 1 took a #RAT. 🤣
Tip #2 – U.S. hospitals SHOULD have excellent ventilation (air cleaning) by reg. But HVAC repair doesn’t have a CPT code. Many of my best & worst air quality readings are from hospitals.

Consider buying a #CO2monitor, read on that hashtag, & follow @joeyfox85 for basic tips.

I don’t know where to start with this profoundly ignorant selfish stupid tweet from @EstherMcVey1 who clearly has no compassion for the 100,000s of people who died or were damaged by #COVID19Pandemic - not least those unprotected in the #NHS due to lack of #PPE early on 1/
#masks do work. We reduced transmission in in centre #haemodialysis #patients radically once they wore masks door to door. 3% of all such #patients died in the first wave Esther & we were told off for giving them masks. 80+ #patients died at our centre alone. It was brutal 2/
Don’t take my word for it (though I’m way more expert than you @EstherMcVey1) - read this thread from @trishgreenhalgh who is a world expert on how #Covid19 is airborne & how #masks protect yourself AND others

And the please correct your dangerous ignorant tweet 3/

📌 This remarkable study of >1M COVID pts found mood & anxiety disorders improved 📌 BUT Acquired #BrainFog (dementia), psychosis & seizures persist at 2 YEARS.
📌 Omicron as bad as Delta

2/ “Clinically, this is exactly what we’re seeing: the acquired dementia these patients get tends to be lasting & very problematic.”
“Given the severity of dementia diagnoses, a 1.2% ⬆️ is hard to ignore.”

@NPR is doing its annual reading and tweeting of the #DeclarationOfIndependence. 246 years ago a group of men felt it so important that they risked everything to defy a King & start a path for a democratic republic. Today we’re seeing those values attacked by the stolen #SCOTUS
The #AntiDemocraticParty of the GOP passing laws & ideas to circumnavigate the will of #Americans. On this #IndependenceDay2022, it is time to not celebrate what happened 246 years ago, but to honor it by standing up for our #FellowAmericans ensuring that #Rights and #Freedoms
Are actually for all of us. #Autonomy is a #Right. Not being shot because you look dangerous or are frightened or just went to school #Right. Loving yourself & having your ability to have your own family is a #Right. #Healthcare is a #HumanRight (#AbortionIsHealthcare)

1/🧵Is Paxlovid Rebound real?👇

Short answer: I say Yes @JAMA_current

It’s when you go from COVID ++ to - to ++ after Treatment.
Prior to #Omicron & Pax, rebound seemed rare.
We need more data.
This article has pearls I want to share…
2/ 1st “If you’re ++, you must assume you’re infectious to others,” he explained.

“PCR test confirmed his positive rapid Ag test & it was back to jail for Dr. Ho.”
Recently, similar cases have been reported & @CDCgov issued a health advisory May 24:
3/ There are just way too many anecdotal cases to ignore.

In recent weeks, prominent physicians in the US including @tmprowell @Bob_Wachter @PeterHotez have all discussed the reality of #PaxlovidRebound.

Yet, @pfizer downplays this & the early papers don’t mention it.

Via @voxdotcom:
“On Thursday, @CDCgov recommended those living in communities w/ high levels of infection wear face #masks indoors in public settings, even though the federal mask mandate is no longer in effect after it was overturned by a federal judge.”
“Research shows that #masks, if used correctly, can be a valuable tool for reducing the spread of the virus. But the CDC’s #mask recommendation for people living in areas w/ high risks of Covid-19 this week was met with mixed responses online…”
“…Some have criticized the agency’s inconsistency in its #masking policy, while others tried to paint the CDC’s motives as political, pointing to the upcoming midterm elections…”

Why I feel we will have a much bigger outbreak of #MonkeyPox & top 70 updates ( we had 50 yesterday ) in the thread below . Let's start by what we already know & then go further

51/n Spain is seriously looking at whether the 80K strong LGBT community get together was a super spreader , they are also trying to find if one of the Saunas ( where gay men go for sex) has been the source , so the consequences are not due to genital spread but congregation ctd)
52/n The problem is its large number of likely reservoirs and things we probably can't entirely avoid including animal droppings : rats, mice, squirrels, shrews, opossums, ground hogs etc . So once it gets into a geographical location #monkeypox will be a tough nut ctd)

1/🧵 WAKE UP - #COVID is a Ball & Chain for heart disease & stroke.
This 154,000 pt study & others solidify COVID as a PREDICTOR of a variety of CardioVascular Dzs.
Translation: #LongCOVID pts suffer heart attacks, strokes & much more.
2/ SHOCKER: Amazing work scientifically. Every med student is taught to gauge Cardiovascular risk history: Smoking, Obesity, HTN, Cholesterol, Family History…

Add COVID to the list. Solid data from @NatureMedicine of US Veterans used >11M contemporary + historical controls!
3/ Main figure shows both hazard ratios & excess burden per 1,000 persons of highlighted types of problems like strokes, V Tach & #POTS, myocarditis, heart attacks, heart failure & blood clots in 154,000 people 30 days after COVID vs. 5,637,647 contemporary controls.
