After a pause during the pandemic, evictions in the U.S. are returning with a vengeance. Millions of low-income people have been kicked out of their apartments or face removal now that COVID-era moratoriums are being lifted and rents are skyrocketing.
#Evictions #pandemic ImageImage
Princeton University's Eviction Lab says eviction rates are more than 50% higher than pre-pandemic levels in many cities. Nationwide, rent prices are 30% higher than they were in 2019, according to the real estate website Zillow.

Landlords and renters held rival protests in Oakland, California, recently as the City Council debated lifting moratoriums on evictions and rent increases. Council members voted to end both measures in July but added some protections for people in need.

1) BREAKING: A month after Japan downgraded #COVID19 to the seasonal flu, the country is now beset with a 9th wave of infections. In this thread, I will explore the persistence of the #pandemic that everyone — especially politicians — wants to forget. Image
2) First, it's worth noting that the number of #COVID hospitalizations in the nation of 125 million rose to 4,330 from 4,122 a week before. The seven-day average for the number of patients in intensive care units was 79, according to the Japan Times.
3) It appears that XBB subtypes of the SARS-CoV-2 virus are driving the latest wave of infections in Japan. Meanwhile, China has recorded a more than five-fold surge in the number of people diagnosed with COVID in hospitals since April. China is also bracing for another wave. Image

How long would the #COVID19 #pandemic have lasted without the #vaccine?

We have two ways to answer this question: the first is the #historical one, i.e. looking at the past and understanding how many years the previous pandemics caused by respiratory #viruses lasted. (1/9) Image
The available data tell us that all pandemics caused by respiratory #viruses lasted about two years:

-Influenza A H1N1 (swine flu), caused by an #influenza A virus of swine origin, lasted from April 2009 to August 2010.

-Influenza A H3N2 (Hong Kong flu), (2/9)
caused by an influenza A virus that emerged in 1968 and replaced the previous H2N2 #virus, which lasted until 1970.

Influenza A H2N2 (Asian flu), caused by an #influenza A virus that emerged in 1957 and replaced the previous H1N1 virus, which lasted until 1958. (3/9)

Amid the #pandemic in June 2020, #Wipro appointed former Capgemini COO @TDelaporte as its CEO with a mandate to “transform and take tough decisions.” The 56-year-old has driven Wipro's aggressive acquisition spree, buying a dozen companies for over $2.3 billion in last 3 years.
In an exclusive interview with ET’s @Sai__ET, @Romita__ET and @SurabhiA_ET, Delaporte said the company is taking bold bets and decisions in order to “transform.”

Here are some edited excerpts 👇
On Wipro's growth: We’ve grown 45% in the last two and a half years and if we can do that, always (we) will be in a good place. Believe me. I think I'm very comfortable with the growth we've driven over the years. I stay focused on our plan and on the execution.

1) The latest graph by Our World in Data shows #COVID19 deaths globally trickled to a mere dozen on May 17. Yes, that's right, only 12 such fatalities the world over. How is that possible? In this thread, I explore our rush to wipe the #pandemic from our collective consciousness. Image
2) Our World in Data had been a reliable source of #COVID stats. But since March 8, it's depended on data from the World Health Organization, whose information is only as accurate as the stats it collects from jurisdictions. But many countries are no longer so diligent.
3) The Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center had been an excellent source of information during the #pandemic, producing a highly detailed dashboard every day. But it stopped collecting data as of March 3. Sadly, the chart below is its last update. Image

#Thread | For ensuring better law & order, Yogi Model's acceptance is growing bigger by the end of the day.

Pak Govt too is following the YOGI MODEL to deal with those responsible for recent riots in the Islamic country.

Read to know the details 👇 Image
After the vandalism that took place in Pakistan very recently following Imran Khan’s arrest, the Punjab home department in Pakistan has put up photos of the vandals as newspaper advertisements and has offered rewards for information leading to their capture.

1/n Image
Interestingly, this method was initiated by UP CM @myogiadityanath

The UP Govt. in 2020 had put up photos of rioters in hoardings to shame those indulging in rioting & even went to the extent of confiscating the properties of rioters.

1. ENTER #mRNAvaccines for #pancreaticcancer! Long-term #PDAC survivor story PART3.

"Do #PDACs REALLY have vaccine neoantigens (NAs)"? (aren’t they lowly mutated?)

If each patient = own NAs, how do you vaccinate?

Maybe mRNA? But how?


👇🏽 [1/32]
2. In 2017, we reported in @Nature here ->… -> that primary tumors of long-term survivors of #PDAC had ~12x more activated CD8 T cells vs. short-term survivors


despite #PDAC’s few mutations, mutation-derived NAs may still be T cell antigens in #PDAC.
3. Now, prevailing belief ->#PDAC = few mutations = fewer mutation-derived NAs = NAs unlikely #PDAC T cell antigens.

BUT...our #NeoantigenQualityModel(estimates the ~1-2% of immunogenic NAs)

found that long term #PDACsurvivors ∝ more “high quality” NAs ∝longer survival. Image

“How the #myth of #biolaboratories was born and how it spread in #Ukraine

‘Since the early hours, the #Russian #invasion of #Ukraine has spawned a staggering amount of #conspiracy theories. Some point to completely denying the very existence of conflict, arguing that the #dead and #wounded are actually “#actors”;
others try to raise concerns about specific events, such as the #bombing of the #Mariupol #hospital or the #Bucha #massacre; and still others perform a #propaganda function, above all that of the phantom #Ukrainian "#biolaboratories", one of the best known and most widespread.’

2) Dr. Lucie Opatrny was previously known to many Quebecers as the deputy health minister in charge of hospitals during the #pandemic. Whether she can fix the MUHC’s major ER overcrowding problem remains to be seen, She told me this will take a team effort.
3) After first dodging an interview for weeks, the MUHC graciously accepted to let me ask Dr. Opatrny some questions. Her answers were so detailed and frank, I expect to write a couple more stories from that interview.

1) Exclusive: Hospitals across Quebec have closed 2,000 beds because of a shortage of nurses and other medical staff. This ends up causing today's ER crisis, including lengthy stays for patients in hallways at Montreal's Royal Victoria Hospital.…
2) Closed hospital beds also make it harder for surgeons to reduce the backlog of elective surgeries that swelled as a result of the #pandemic. At present, more than 49,000 Quebecers are on wait lists that are longer than six months for an operation.…
3) Finally, the chart below shows Montreal's emergency rooms overcrowded as ever. The longest average ER wait time on stretchers — 35 hours and 15 minutes — is at Santa Cabrini Hospital. But as I report today, some ER patients stay on stretchers for more than 120 hours. Image

1) Breaking: A year-over-year comparison of overcrowding in Montreal's hospital emergency rooms continues to show the situation is worsening. A year ago on this date, all the city's ERs were filled to 119% capacity. Today, the percentage has surged to 144. Image
2) A year ago on this date, no Montreal ER was overcrowded above 200%. Today, the Royal Victoria Hospital's occupancy rate is a staggering 242%; its average ER stay on a stretcher is 48 hours and 27 minutes. Both stats are the highest by far in the metropolis. Image
3) Close behind, the Jewish General's ER is at 225% occupancy and the Montreal General's is at 213%. At the Lakeshore General, the average ER stay is nearly 48 hours. As I wrote recently, lengthy ER stays are associated with a higher mortality rate.…
