Dalam kesihatan awam, untuk kes-kes ILI, kami telah mempunyai sistem survelan yang amat baik. Salah satunya adalah survelan sentinel yang mana ada klinik yang terpilih di dalam satu daerah yang akan mengambil sampel klinikal yang akan dihantar ke makmal dan laporan harian ke PKD.
Jadi pihak Pejabat Kesihatan Daerah (PKD) akan mengambil maklum jika terdapat peningkatan kes-kes ILI di daerah dan akan melaporkan ke Jabatan Kesihatan Negeri (JKN) dan JKN ke KKM HQ.

Oleh kerana itu, kita boleh tahu jika terdapat outbreak of ILI seperti keadaan sekarang ini.
Diharapkan supaya orang ramai boleh menjaga kesihatan dan kebersihan diri serta mengamalkan kaedah pencegahan untuk mengelakkan daripada dijangkiti.

Ia boleh menyebabkan gejala jangkitan yang ringan mahupun serius.

Kebanyakan kes adalah RINGAN.

Untuk sesetengah kes, ia boleh mengancam nyawa individu yang dijangkiti.
Bagi negara-negara yang beriklim sederhana, kejadian wabak kerap kali berlaku semasa musim sejuk.

Untuk negara seperti Malaysia (negara tropika di sepanjang garisan Khatulistiwa), kejadian wabak berlaku sepanjang tahun tanpa mengikut musim yang tertentu.
Tempoh inkubasi adalah pendek iaitu 1-2 hari, boleh sehingga 4 hari.

Antara gejalanya:
✅Demam
✅Selesema
✅Sakit tekak
✅Batuk
✅Sakit kepala
✅Sakit badan

@Eric_Schmitt Eric’s campaign is long overdue to release a playlist; 22 #GreatestHits now await so that Schmitt’s #ShowMeState its AG’s dismal record can view for this 🚑 chaser’s unfit. Each song here I dedicate to Schmitt. 🎵 #mosen 🎶 @jeffroe #SchmittList @erictrump
@Eric_Schmitt @jeffroe @EricTrump To help brighten your day (if you’re blue), I’ve seen fit to add a sneak preview of Schmitt’s 22 tunes. Each one squarely lampoons the ineptitude of his sad crew. They’re listed in alphabet’s order; each tune makes this campaign grow shorter.

@andrewleppert @ivankatrump @SoCoGOP
@Eric_Schmitt @jeffroe @EricTrump @AndrewLeppert @IvankaTrump @SoCoGOP 1/ AG Schmitt’s favorite ploy was named “sue.” While campaigning, it’s all he could do large donations (in cash) with false hope soon to stash for his failing run in ’22: the main ingredient Schmitt would need #RoyBlunt in the Senate to succeed.

Why is @MASchoolsK12 @cityofbrockton @brocktonschools targeting elementary schools students for injections? Vax for Snax? You’re exploiting vulnerable families! 🍦💰@BobSullivanMA @MassDPH
Inject your kids & get paid! 💉🍦💰

Shame on @Target & @MarketBasket.

Mayor @BobSullivanMA should resign effective immediately. It’s bad enough he’s allowing @MassDPH to prey on vulnerable families but no ambulance was on site. 🚑

#Brockton #SaveOurKids #Pfizer #VaccineDeaths
@BrocktonPolice sent an academy cop. & instead of PROTECTING THE KIDS FROM EXPLOITATION, he told me I needed a permit to be on school grounds. 😑

MA has turned into the Twilight zone! 😵‍💫

@PinnShips targets kids!

Where is @MassAGO?

When will we admit that “clash of civilizations” of Islamophobia narrative is not only false but dangerous. “War on Terror”=waging war vs Muslims but #J6 & #BuffaloMassacre reveal terror is not one religion. When Muslims are “legit” targets…that supremacist hate spreads further. ImageImageImageImage
Who was it “okay” to torture? (assumed is a terrorist?) Whose civil liberties disappeared 20 years ago? Muslims.

“But you all ‘deserve’ it” we’ve heard &: Why didn’t you stop terrorism? Why haven’t you apologized about x & y?

Now: consequences of that

vox.com/2016/3/31/1133…
The “Great Replacement” is an extension of “Clash of Civilizations” that conflict/war is “inevitable” between “different” humans defined by race or religion. It dehumanizes some humans as “less than” or “threat.” Once you label as such, violence follows. vox.com/science-and-he…

This is insane:
Only 54 percent of district health board staff have had the flu vaccine! Nelson Marlborough District Health Board: just 39 percent of workers had been vaccinated against flu.
If you can prevent infection with something (the flu) that harms kids, older people, pregnant women, and others...and kills some people every year, how can you be a health care worker and not bother getting vaccinated..to keep your patients safer?

Of course it should be required
Also this is becoming a trend, increasing/promoting free vaccines *after* a surge/peak
Prevention doesn't work that way.

We knew months ago that this would be a bad flu season, Australia got clobbered.
And yet we changed nothing.

Every #publichealth practitioner needs to see & denounce this. washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2022/….

When our public health leaders begin to question racism - despite well established evidence - as a driver of poor health, it is an assault from the inside. 1/12

Greene wants to "create an investigative unit...to “start fresh” on...reasons for high rates of Black maternal and infant mortality." So are why dismissing decades of research? Maybe Greene needs to read White Fragility. This seems to be a pretty good example of that. 3/12

The United States is an incredible statistical outlier among economically developed countries re guns per capita. 1/

📢Hey RI pharmacists!

We have several bills impacting pharmacists under consideration by both the @RIHouseofReps & @RISenate in '22

Today we highlight S2330- Pharmacist to prescribe hormonal contraception
webserver.rilegislature.gov/BillText22/Sen…
Introduced 2/15/22 to HHS
Read more below👇

1/n
This bill would expand access to hormonal contraception by allowing a pharmacist to prescribe an FDA approved product/ provide counseling on LARC (long acting reversible contraception, ie. Intrauterine & subdermal nexplanon), while providing reimbursement for services

2/n
Thank you 🙏to bill sponsor @KendraForRI for leading the charge and bringing many medical professions together on this issue.

We also thank co-sponsors:
@SenatorMillerRI
@MackDistrict6 @SenatorCalkin

Excited to welcome @zeynep (in person) & @JNkengasong (virtually) to @Brown_SPH @BrownUniversity Commencement weekend - with @stef_friedhoff moderating ❤️

Tweet thread forthcoming.
It’s time to move beyond the Hollywood version of change that we are taught in grade school, as we think about the future of #publichealth: “Movements are complex … & don’t always turn into the kind of lasting policy change that people are hoping for”. - @zeynep
(I can’t help but think of our decades of work on #firearminjury & #GunViolence here - or @judithheumann’s lifelong work on accessibility & disability rights.)

Keep going, but/and keep trying new avenues & new coalitions.

Kiwi kids will go on to die (unnecessarily and preventably!) of cervical cancer, anal cancer, and throat cancer while these 'leaders' stand in the way of healthcare, and take taxpayer money.

#HPV vaccine is an anti-cancer vaccine, one of the few real medical miracles out there.)

@anniefreyshow @Cardinals @KMOXSports Eric struts upon an empty stage filing bogus suits vs. #SamPage that doctors rejected as Eric infected the suburbs he’d happily wage a #peculiar wharfair against. With the state’s famed motto he dispensed yet fancied himself a bold hero. Upon the scoreboard we read 0.

In light of the opiate overdoses here in #Nashville, I decided to see how easy it would be to find #naloxone, the agent used to reverse an opiate overdose. Here's what I've found:
#Tennessee does have a standing order for #naloxone at pharmacies so you don't need a prescription to get it. Calling my local CVS pharmacy I found they only have name brand and it costs $89 out of pocket with a coupon.
If you want your insurance to pay for it, you need to get a prescription from, can't use the standing order.

FYI: there’s a bad batch of cocaine being sold in #Nashville. Likely has fentanyl in it. I’ve seen 4 ODs tonight so far. Presenting like opiate overdoses but all say they only did coke. #Tennessee #publichealth #drugs
I tested 2 of my patients that were the most affected. Both of them had UDS neg including cocaine. Our drug screens don’t test for fentanyl.
The neg cocaine test plus no other substances plus the opiate overdose presentation (unresponsive, then revived with naloxone) likely means the patients did straight up fentanyl. And likely why they ended up in my emergency department.

Thoughts on #covid19 boosters for 5-11 year olds (from my perspective as a #publichealth professional, physician, & mom) - with receipts:
1. Getting our kids the first series of vaccines (shots 1 & 2), is better than no vaccines - even with Omicron.
cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/7…
2. But/and - as Omicron continues to evolve, immune escape increases (as we're already seeing in adults).

The UK #monkeypox outbreak is very interesting. A 🧵of some key points
- typically very limited human-to-human transmission, needs very close contact
- therefore, transmission is nothing like #COVID19
- to add to other #publichealth voices, very very low risks to wider general public
- if close contact, then public health teams will follow up
- monkeypox can be very nasty (case fatality rates upwards of 1%, albeit most outbreaks in areas where healthcare is v limited)
- UK has several specialist facilities for handling unusual tropical medicine cases. NHS is very good at this.
- Name is a bit misleading. First identified in monkeys, but small animals like rats/other rodents a more common host (typically in parts of West/Central Africa)

We have either rapid re-infection, or rebound #Covid19 after Paxlovid, in my own 🏡 . Vaxxed & boosted. Symptoms & rapid test pos 5/2, 5d of Pax 5/4-5/8, all symptoms gone, neg rapid test x 2 5/8 & 5/9.

5/16 new symptoms & RAT instantly pos (📸). Our #MedTwitter 🏡 is weary. Image
By the way, the right answer is not “So Paxlovid doesn’t work.” It works very well to ⬇️ risk of severe illness, which matters a lot. And right answer is not “so let’s just give 10d.” Right answer is we need data to understand this phenomenon & direct rational antiviral use.
I’m sharing this because:
👉Anecdotes can generate scientific hypotheses that THEN MUST BE STUDIED WITH RIGOR &
👉The public needs to know for #publichealth reasons that, one way or another, we can end up symptomatic & contagious again a wk after apparent #COVID19 recovery.
