🧵 Shared from a dr friend, details changed for patient privacy: Had 3 unvaxxed women in late pregnancy hospitalized w/ #COVID19 w/ emergency early deliveries. One dead, leaving 5 kids; one transferred out of state for ECMO (my note: most advanced life support) & dying anyway…
2/ One survived but had a stroke that left her with neurological disability so she will not be able to return to her home. Instead, she’ll spend her New Years’ Eve in a brain rehab. All the babies are expected to live, but these families are 💔. Two young moms dead, one disabled.
3/ #COVID19 is very dangerous in #pregnancy. The risk of death from #Covid is 22 times ⬆️ if you are #pregnant. The risk of stillbirth is doubled. Both @CDCgov & @ACOGPregnancy strongly rec to #GetVaccinated & #GetBoosted at ANY point in pregnancy, yet 2/3 in 🇺🇸 are unvaxxed.

🧵 Your risk of dying if you get #Omicron in the next few wks as opposed to a few months from now will be dramatically different. We are facing huge surges in Jan that will make it hard to get seen in an ER in a timely fashion & even harder to get admitted to a hospital.
2/ Should you be fortunate enough to find a bed, you will have drs & nurses overwhelmed with patient volume, who will have very limited time to spend w/ you. Dr to patient (& nurse to patient) ratios will be unsafe, like unthinkable in pre-#pandemic times. #Omicron #MedTwitter
3/ This alone will dramatically increase your odds of death. That’s been seen in the prior surges. With #Omicron, the # falling ill at once is 🚀 off the charts. I’m seeing attack rates of 75-100% even in fully #vaccinated (& some #boosted) gatherings & households. #MedTwitter

🧵I have to say it: Christmas break is going to be bad. I'm watching confirmed #COVID19 cases⬆️ exponentially at our highly-#vaccinated school w/ a #MaskMandate & HEPA filters in every class. Make a plan now for how you'll handle Xmas & #quarantine when someone gets #Omicron.
2/ Think about how you can create a separate space for the person(s) infected. Remember #OmicronIsAirborne. Pick a rm w/ windows to open & its own door if your home allows. Today put a fan there that can be used to improve air exchange. Put a 🌡️, an O2 sat monitor, good masks.
3/ Go get a MERV13 filter for your HVAC at Home Depot or Lowe's or online. While here, get the stuff to build a simple, inexpensive, highly-effective Corsi-Rosenthal box. You can see what this is here. Build it now so it's ready.

🧵It is now clear that we are going to have to get people to #MaskUp to get thru winter without US health care system collapse. #Omicron is way too contagious. #VaccinesWork & #GetBoosted, but they will not be enough on their own. So this thread is for people who hate masks:
2/X: If you hate masks because the ear loops make your ears sore, google "ear savers." That's the term I've seen used for various products that spare your ears w/ masks. Examples in pics, but if you can sew on a button, make some. What else are you gonna do in #quarantine?
3/X: You can get a beanie, headband, baseball cap, head scarf, whatever & attach button or hooks of any kind that you can get from any sewing store or online, & attach your mask loops to that. Ear pain solved! It's important to have a snug fit so try diff distances.

@narendramodi 18.11.21 [Writ Petition(s)(Civil) No(s).1240/21] Hon'ble SC dismissed writ petition filed by students seeking urgent directions to conduct Class X & XII #CBSE & #ICSE Term I exams in hybrid manner. #Omicron arrived post 18.11.21. Therefore, exams should be online.
#Children should not be made to suffer because of #Omicron. Centre and States must cancel all #offline #exams forthwith. As a nation, we cannot take such a massive risk & play with the lives of our children. Online prelims are done, marks should be part of board marksheet.
Children belong to households that have either lost family members due to #Covid19 or members who suffer from #comorbidities & cannot be vaccinated. #Omicron shouldn't be taken lightly. Save our children. Protect our children. Cancel all #offline #exams immediately.

1/2 With the avalanche of news about #Omicron I can't help the sense of impending doom that I felt early in the pandemic. This is compounded by knowing that this was totally avoidable. Rich countries have mismanaged most aspects of their pandemic response....
....allowed uncontrolled spread within and outside their borders, hoarded vaccines and test kits, relaxed other measures prematurely, fed us with empty promises, opposed #TRIPSwaiver, let vaccines expire and many other questionable decisions...i
Will #Omicron finally unlock some sense in the leadership of these countries? Will rich countries finally see how pointless this all is?
Or are we going to see the same old, same old racist measures of travel bans, drip drip donations and other nonsense??
