🔴📩📢In its first opinion, the French 🇫🇷 Scientific Committee #COVARS whose role is to anticipate and prevent health crises and their societal consequences, attributes #LongCOVID, as well as other post-infectious syndromes, to psychosomatic disorders, without scientific basis🧵 Image
As a collective of patients with Long COVID, we feel it essential to voice our dissent with #COVARS on this matter.

Almost two years into the pandemic, advances in research demonstrate that #SARSCoV2 infection affects multiple organ systems. 2/
The existence of Long COVID, both in children and adults, has been established for almost two years.

Persisting symptoms have been termed “post-acute sequelae of Covid” (PASC) or Long COVID, and been described in thousands of studies

1. #NIAID is launching its clinical trial of Jynneos, the Bavarian Nordic #monkeypox vaccine. I wrote about the fact that they were working on designing this clinical trial back in early August.
A short 🧵 statnews.com/2022/09/08/fen…
2. Since I wrote about the trial, things have changed. For starters, @US_FDA authorized use of Jynneos by intradermal administration, using 1/5th of a full dose of vaccine. So this trial is in part studying something that is already being done. Trial sites here. #monkeypox Image
3. The trial will compare safety, tolerability & immunogenicity (not efficacy) of 2 full doses, 2 one-fifth doses & interestingly, 2 one-tenth doses. Curious as to the rationale for such a low dose, especially given the preprint that came out last week. statnews.com/2022/09/02/stu…

*COVID-19 breakup song lyrics*
[sung along with the abcdefu song]

Fuck you, and your jab, and your vaxx, and your masks
And these fake mandates, and this shit we all hate

Fuck you, Fauci, and Rochelle Walensky,
Bill Gates, FDA, you can all fuck off
Two weeks to flatten the curve
before it ended

Even tried to bite my tongue
watching CNN

Now Ron Johnson, friends,
asking questions

never even believed
this in the first place

Started inflating
cases for attention

myocarditis—
What a sick connection!
It’s like adverse events
came with submission

You’re going all about it in
the worst ways

I was into Cuomo, but
I’m over him now

And I was trying to be nice

COVID-19 NEWS: Neutralizing antibody activity against all variants of #SARS-CoV-2, including Delta, lasted 6 months in people who got 2 doses of #COVID19 mRNA #vaccine. Findings online now @ScienceMagazine bit.ly/3fY1BEs
#NIAID, @EmoryMedicine researchers used multiple tests to measure different types of antibody response and whether they functioned against new virus variants.
Blood samples from 24 vaccinated people (8 each in 3 age groups) were drawn multiple times after vaccination. Most participants, including those over 71 years old, had detectable binding and functional antibodies at 6 months after 2nd dose.

COVID-19 NEWS: A new analysis of data (not yet peer-reviewed) from the Moderna #COVID19 vaccine Ph 3 trial adds evidence toward establishing a "correlate of protection"—a measurable marker of efficacy used to predict whether a vaccine will be protective bit.ly/CoP1273
The data indicate levels of neutralizing antibody responses strongly correlate with protection against symptomatic COVID-19. 4 kinds of tests showed that higher antibody levels correlated with higher estimated vaccine efficacy against symptomatic COVID-19.
Correlates of protection can help speed regulatory authorization & approval. Instead of large trials, samples from smaller groups of vaccinated people could be evaluated with a test indicating whether a vaccine is likely to have clinical benefit in that population.

Azar on @CBSThisMorning insisting it's important for him to get $MRNA #COVID19 vax today b/c he's a "leader."
Azar's wife tested positive & he's refusing to quarantine & he's been at photo ops/briefings.
Today, he'll be at #NIH, putting Fauci, @NIHDirector, others at risk
Leader?
Is it leadership to refuse to quarantine, claim you're an "essential worker" to get around that quarantine, hold photo ops putting others potentially at risk, not to mention stepping in front of health care workers at #NIH to get $MRNA #COVID19 vaccine?
1 month left Azar at #HHS
Would it have shown better leadership to follow #CDC's advice, #stayhome & #quarantine after being exposed to #COVID19 & wait your turn to get $MRNA vaccine rather than stepping in front of critical health care workers?

Azar claimed he gets the shot today b/c he's a "leader."

President-elect @JoeBiden got the $PFE - $BNTX #COVID19 vaccine at @christianacare, administered by Tabe Masa, a nurse practitioner & head of employee health services at the hospital.
@DrBiden got her shot of $PFE - $BNTX vaccine earlier today.
Meanwhile, #NIAID Director Anthony Fauci, @NIHDirector Francis Collins & @NIHClinicalCntr frontline workers will get $MRNA #COVID19 shot tomorrow morning 10amET. Azar also will get the vaccine. #NIH #vaccines
Keep in mind tomorrow when Azar is getting $MRNA #COVID19 shot that he has overseen this calamity, downplayed it, sidelined @DrNancyM_CDC & #CDC experts & refuses to acknowledge 318,000 Americans are dead on his watch.
He again ignored the number of dead during today's briefing.

[And PS, Caputo's title isn't "assistant secretary of health," as he claimed - that's Giroir's job. It's "assistant secretary for public affairs." So he also gave himself a promotion on that radio show, along with bashing #CDC]
cc: @ASlavitt @larry_levitt
H/T @christymaginn for the link to the radio program Caputo was on after he took his leave of absence & says he "believes everything" he said about #CDC & will "stand by it" & says Trump "stands by" what Caputo said.
Then he claims Anthony Fauci is his doctor.
Why is #NIAID Director Anthony Fauci, an infectious diseases expert, treating Caputo for what he said was a lump on his neck & says he was seen at the National Cancer Institute?
Caputo bragged about the access to medical facilities he has in his position at #HHS.

.@CNNSotu, @CNN, why do you keep giving Navarro a public forum? He has repeatedly spread misinformation on a number of topics, but particularly #COVID19, and he has repeatedly disparaged U.S. public health institutions & government scientists.

#CNNsotu #FDA #CDC #NIH
.@jaketapper, it's not balanced news to let people like Navarro use public forums to spread misinformation. Why are you allowing Navarro once again that opportunity to use your program to do that?

#CNNsotu #CDC #NIH #FDA #COVID19
PS, Trump had nothing to do with the start of the #COVID19 #vaccines strategy. #NIH/#NIAID was already partnering with - a project for mRNA vaccines started by @BarackObama admin - & started on vaccine in mid-January before Trump said he'd even heard about #coronavirus.

Concerns that politics are overshadowing biopharmaceutical makers' pursuit of successfully delivering safe and effective #vaccines against #COVID19 prompted even members of the drug industry to call on their colleagues to be more transparent.
"The issue of vaccine confidence is a critical one," said Merck & Co. Inc. Chairman and CEO Kenneth Frazier. "At the end of the day, the most important thing for us to do, is to reinforce to the public our commitment to safety as the number one thing."

#COVID19 #vaccines
While there is a need to move with urgency to develop a #COVID19 vaccine, companies must commit to not sacrifice safety under any set of circumstances, 's Frazier said during a Sept. 3 online briefing hosted @IFPMA.

Someone from either #NIAID @NIH or #NCID @CDCgov should educate #TantrumP2020, Global #COVIDIOT No.1, #Virology/#VirusEpidemiology/#SARS_COV_2 #101 to stop the #SHIT that's coming out of his upper orifice!!

2) #China DIDN'T SEND IT OUT to infect America - Global Travel did! 🙄
3) The DISEASE has been Christened #COVID19 (COronaVIrusDisease2019) by @WHO, for ease of reference!!

Oh?! The TIMING!!
Just my luck to switch on the TV at approximately 11.00 a.m. #MYT, to have it already tuned to #AlJazeera channel LIVE, at the exact moment #TantrumP2020, Global #COVIDIOT No. 1, was uttering his SHIT about #COVID19usa, caused by his SO-CALLED #WuhanVirus!

#Remdesivir begins distribution in the #USA today via #EUA.

I thought would write down some practical #tips based on my #qualitative anecdotal experience after personally treating close to 200 patients with #COVID19.

For quantitative results, wait for the papers¬—thread
“this juice works, doc!” When you hear similar expressions 1-2 days after starting #remdesivir multiple times, you start to wonder. Don't recall a similar proportion of patients smile after feeling so sick 1-2 days earlier with #COVID19. x/n? Wait for the papers.
Like #treatment for any severe infectious disease (meningitis, Gram-negative bacteremia, influenza pneumonia, etc), earlier is always better. #COVID19 is no different. #Remdesivir stops #SARS-CoV2 replication, but won’t heal the lung injury.

(1/6) Most drugs are not effective at treating #COVID, and do not address the root-cause symptoms. #Remdesivir is one such example—the drug mimics #RNA, and gets incorporated into the viral RNA transcripts preferentially versus human RNA transcripts.
(2/6) Mechanistically, this drug was promsising. However, in today’s @TheLancet paper, "#Remdesivir in adults with severe #COVID-19: a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicentre trial," findings are inconclusive at best, and damning at worst:
(3/6)
1) The study enrolled already-hospitalized patients with pneumonia, with <94% oxygen saturation, who were already hospitalized
2) They measured clinical improvement for 28 days
3) "#Remdesivir use was not associated with a difference in time to clinical improvement"

"The Lancet‘s fraudulent concealment of genetics, and its own conflicting interests, while condemning #coronavirus conspiracy theorists, gives the appearance of “crisis capitalism,” and complicity in the COVID-19-SARS/HIV-1 #Wuhan ‘Event 201‘ biocrime." Image
The 'Scientific' arguments going on behind the scenes on #Covid_19 should be a wake-up call to the 'TRUE' dangers the world is being exposed to! 'BOTH' sides of the argument are labelling the other 'Conspiracy Theorists'. Only one of them can be! Image
The Lancet writes that "Conspiracy theories do nothing but create fear, rumours, and prejudice...." #Covid_19 Image
