🧵A thread - Same birthday gift three years in a row: a lesson in public health and politics
1/ It was the evening of Thursday, March 12, 2020. I was out shopping with my daughters. My youngest daughter had a gift certificate tucked in her purse. She was eager to find something to spend it on.
2/ Having turned nine years old, the day before, she was still bouncing with happy birthday joy.
Walking through the aisles of toys, I heard a notification on my phone. A text from a friend relayed the news that schools would remain closed after the upcoming March break.

Biden's announcement today is the perfect kick to pull the cover off this project I've been working on: Since the Canadian Government and Provincial Governments have no reasonable plan to get high-quality masks to the most vulnerable Canadians, I saw a gap to be filled. 2/x
A bunch of my talented colleagues and I created the Donate A Mask Project Canada to address this need. The mission is simple: Putting high-quality masks in hands of the vulnerable with as little fuss as possible. 3/x

1/ SARS-Cov-2 is airborne and always has been.

Here's a quick 🧵 on where to find high-quality, made-in-America NIOSH-certified N95 masks that you may not know about.

Disclosure: I have no relationship with these companies, just an abiding interest in a secure, healthy USA.
2/ Indiana Face Mask Company.

Vertically integrated manufacturer that scaled up a new factory to ensure a secure supply of USA-made N95 masks. Quantity discounts available. Affordable.

3/ ReadiMask.

Maryland based company producing the only NIOSH certified, STRAPLESS N95 mask. They also make a version with an integrated face shield. If you want a FULL SEAL, then this is the mask for you.

I got home this morning after an overnight shift in the pediatric emergency department.

I rarely share personal reflections based on my clinical work as a #pediatrician via @twitter, but I'm allowing myself this exception.

A thread 🧵 1/21...
2/ I started my winter holiday stretch of shifts by working on #Christmas evening and finished it by ringing in the #NewYear last night while taking care of sick & injured children with a phenomenal (but overworked & somewhat demoralized team) at the children's hospital.
3/ Let me re-iterate at the outset that I've always been opposed to @francoislegault @coalitionavenir's imposition of the #curfew because of its harmful impacts on many of the most marginalized people in society.

No, the pandemic won't end until people like @DrTedros & the @WHO admit that #COVIDisAirborne and that everyone in the world must be given free N95s.

Non-sterilising vaccines have nothing to do with ending the pandemic, @WHO & Tedros continuing to LIE about this is not ok.
The vaccines at best are mitigating hospitalisations and deaths from acute Covid for now.

It is bad to continue to conflate this utility with ending the pandemic, it destroys what little faith people have left in vaccine efficacy & pub health in general
It is also not ok to continue to deploy non-sterilising vaccines without making a CREDIBLE commitment to getting R<1

Any credible commitment requires telling people HOW they are REALLY getting infected! #COVIDisAirborne

And how to stop! #N95sForAll

Stop making fun of older kids who still believe in Santa Claus, there are ID docs who still believe in droplet transmission.
If you think I am being harsh, there is no such thing as pure droplet transmission. This is simply physics. Even a purely upper respiratory tract infection produces infectious aerosols as well as droplets. Lower respiratory infections are all aerosol transmission.
Your loose surgical mask will catch droplets. But aerosols will go around the gaps. You need to close the gap by wearing well-fitting medical-grade masks. #N95sForAll
