This is really irresponsible. Over 125 adults & youth from a Galveston County #Texas church camp event have tested positive for COVID.

The Clear Creek Community Church youth ministry camp was held at a facility near Giddings, Texas, last month.… Image
"Additionally, hundreds more were exposed to COVID-19 at camp. And hundreds of others were likely exposed when infected people returned home from camp. We seek to remain in contact with those impacted"

A group of programmers collected and edited this, with all due seriousness. Then some other people who care about the future of humanity translated it into English, in a hope that this can be translated into other languages too.

1/2 #Vaccines are amazing. They make normal activities - like #carehome and #amateur community #singing #choirs safe. Not just business. So what do you make of @DCMS ban >6 in new guidance? #COVID19 @DCMSArts
2/3 There is probably no easier setting for doing an #outbreak investigation than a #choir. @MakingMusic_UK & others have well developed risk assessments. Ask @BarbaraEifler Around 300k people sing weekly - more than football (more women tho....)
3/3 my earlier analysis on #choirs #sti even more relevant in vaccine era. It's time to realise the benefits of our #vaccination programme for #singing - a low cost and life enhancing activity open to all!… (also listen at 17 mins…)

THREAD - What happened at the Huanan #seafood market?

The @WHO report is quite clear on this point: #SARSCoV2 might have jumped from a wild animal sold in this market and maybe other markets in #Wuhan. But what do we know exactly? 1/15

#originsofSARSCoV2 Image
After all this time, the Huanan seafood market still remains the main suspect for a simple reason: most of the early cases had visited at least one market in Wuhan city, and several of them visited the Huanan market. 2/15 Image
According to the report, 10,000 people visited this place every day, making it a perfect setting for an #outbreak. One might argue: what about the cases without market exposure? Good question! 3/15

While California is making significant progress in the fight against the #COVID_19 pandemic, the state still has a long way to go before returning to life as it was before the pandemic hit.

Vaccines will help but maybe not in the way you might think.…
The ongoing vaccine rollout has raised hopes for some semblance of normalcy in the near future.

But experts caution that the pandemic may continue for months and the virus may never fully be eradicated.…
Vaccines can't do it all, experts say.

1/ Q: Can I go back to my indoor #fitness classes? 🚴‍♀️

A: The #NerdyGirls LOVE your efforts to stay fit 💪, but best to hang on to those online or outdoor workouts a bit longer.

TL;DR: Heavy breathing, no masks, and indoors is the perfect recipe for #SARSCoV2 #transmission.
2/ A recent U.S. @CDCgov report described an #outbreak linked to an unnamed fitness facility in #Chicago in which *55 out of 81* attendees of an indoor high-intensity fitness class in Chicago were infected over the course of a week in August 2020.
3/ ❓What precautions were being taken?

➡️ The classes were at <25% capacity, with masks 😷, temperature & symptom checks required at entry. 🤒 Exercise mats were spaced 6 feet/2 meters apart. ↔️

woke up today with a cough, sore throat, and shortness of breath. I decided pretty quickly that I needed to do the responsible thing and get a #COVID test.

Here is the story of how tumultuous it is to try to do this through @umich University Health Service. #thread 🧵 (1/n)
A lot of people had told me to just go to Walgreens in Ypsi, or just go to urgent care, but without a car, the UHS was my only feasible option. I heard they won’t test you unless you have symptoms, but i DID have symptoms, so it wouldn’t be a problem. right? (2/n)
wrong! I start by calling UHS, the robot on the phone tells me that if i am experiencing COVID symptoms I have to fill out a questionnaire on the UHS website.

The UHS website tells me if i have COVID symptoms, i have to call UHS right away.

so.... now what? (3/n)
