In our recent review on #LongCovid/PASC we bring up the possibility that dysbiosis or imbalance of host #microbiome communities (in ecosytems such as the gut, lungs, or oral cavity) might contribute to at least some LongCovid symptoms: frontiersin.org/articles/10.33…
2/ More specifically immune dysregulation driven by #SARS-CoV-2 might allow pathobionts (bacteria capable of both commensal + virulent acitivty) in the gut, mouth, or other body sites to collectively shift towards a state of imbalance + pro-inflammatory gene/metabolite expression
3/ Conversely, b/c composition + activity of the microbiome can influence host susceptibility and ongoing control of #viral pathogens, exisiting microbiome dysbiosis in a range of body sites may serve as a form of predisposition to LongCovid

Während der Pandemie haben wir uns an die Vorstellung gewöhnt, dass die meisten #COVID-Fälle „#milde #Verläufe sind.
Zb die #CDC sagt, dass 80 % der symptomatischen #SARSCov2 Infektionen einen "milden Verlauf" haben.
Manche denken: dann #kein Grund zur Sorge. Zurecht?

Im #allgemeinen #Sprachgebrauch beschreibt das Wort #mild idR etwas von #untergeordneter #Bedeutung.
Zum Beispiel wird #Erkältung oft als "#milde #Viruserkrankung" bezeichnet.
#Mild bedeutet also "durchaus evtl  unangenehm aber nicht weiter
von Bedeutung, keine große Sache"

Betrachten wir das Attribut "#mild" im Zusammenhang mit #Covid zeigt sich : #Allgemeiner #Sprachgebrauch und die #medizinische #Definition unterscheiden sich hier #signifikant, werden aber @vermischt, was zu #Verwirrung in der Kommunikation über den wahren Sachverhalt führt.

The #COVID19 #vaccines are designed to prevent disease—they are also incredibly effective at preventing #transmission! Here we discuss the immunological mechs that cause vaccines to tangibly and effectively reduce transmission! 🧵 1/n sciencedirect.com/science/authSh… @TheLancetInfDis
Humbled to have put together a review on the COVID19 vaccines’ ability to reduce transmission with my fellow med skool classmates from @SpikeSupport- @CarolineNValdez, @Larson_HaleighT, @ChaneyKalinich, and mentored by the amazing @VirusesImmunity 2/n
We note four stages by which vaccine-induced immunity can ⬇️ transmission: 1️⃣ infection, 2️⃣ viral replication, 3️⃣ threshold for host-to-host spread, and 4️⃣ degree of symptomaticity 3/n

Het medische tijdschrift The Lancet publiceerde onlangs een stellingname van deskundigen die erop wijzen dat het aanvaarden van massale infecties in onderwijsinstellingen om verschillende redenen géén optie is.

Toch formuleerde onze mediaviroloog @vanranstmarc
Onze mediaviroloog @vanranstmarc zei:“Bij lagere school kinderen ga je ook (veilig) natuurlijke immuniteit verwerven door natuurlijke infectie”. Dit terwijl collega’s uit andere landen het absolute tegendeel beweren? @MichiWagner4 @c_drosten @EckerleIsabella
@mdradvies
‼️Waarom worden kinderen niet beter beschermd tot er meer bewijsmateriaal is?
‼️Hoe nalatig is de huidige aanpak?

De gezondheid van de kinderen mag niet verder in gevaar wordt gebracht.
👉🏼Er moet nu actie worden ondernomen.

"#Data: a new direction" - a public consultation by @DCMS on "reforms to the UK’s #DataProtection regime":

The consultation ends on 19 Nov 2021, and you can respond by e-mail to DataReformConsultation@dcms.gov.uk or online here:

dcms.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_4P… Image
A quick sample of initial reactions...

We're clearly going to be hearing a lot about #LegitimateInterests, as well as #commercial and #public ones. The real question being, how do this Government's interests actually align with YOURS?

140+ pages on a Friday is a lot to digest, but @lilianedwards' "penumbra of often futile determinedly populist ideas largely not evidence-based" seems entirely consistent with @DCMS's Drunkard's Walk through #data and #ID this past year...

Do you have the Delta Variant? It’s illegal for you to know blog.nomorefakenews.com/2021/09/06/do-…
2/ Quoted from Jon Rappoport story:

Recently, I quoted official sources who stated that the current PCR test can’t differentiate between SARS-CoV-2 and the Delta Variant. Only through deeper genetic sequencing of patients’ swab samples---a procedure that isn’t routinely done---
3/ can testers tell whether a person has the original SARS-CoV-2 or the Delta.

In order to know whether the #Delta is widespread, a predictive computer model would have to be assembled. These models are notoriously inaccurate.

The bottom line? The tidal wave of propaganda….

1/210: Markus Kerber's Apollo 13

In March 2020, the German Ministry of the Interior @BMI_Bund issued a #strategypaper that weaponized fear in order to accomplish compliance with #COVID policies. The authors' emails were litigated under #FOIA request. My analysis. #MEGATHREAD ⬇️ Image
2/210: The @BMI_Bund emails have been released to the public as they were successfully sued by lawyer Niko Härting in a FOIA proceeding. They can be requested directly from @BMI_Bund/ @rki_de via @fragdenstaat. Download it here: bit.ly/3knoa6Y bit.ly/3Bd0rgj Image
3/210: The emails originated March 19-25, 2020. They are so explosive because they map the inner discourse of the @BMI_Bund's now infamous #COVID-19 taskforce, which produced several crucial domestic policy documents. bit.ly/2TT3R7O @OttoKolbl

#SARS’s Criminal and Illicit Economic Activities division traced stolen VBS money through two front companies into #EFF deputy leader #FloydShivambu’s FNB Private Wealth bank account. dailymaverick.co.za/article/2021-0…
#FloydShivambu’s sustained charade of ‘fighting for the poor’ instead of robbing them is, for the first time, highlighted by a state institution in open court proceedings following #Sars investigation into his brother, Brian, and the missing #VBS millions. dailymaverick.co.za/article/2021-0…
#Sars has slapped 2 companies of #BrianShivambu with a R28.2m tax bill. This eye-watering amount includes penalties because Shivambu attempted to evade paying tax for the periods 2017, 2018 and 2019.

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.

#PCR Tests Must Go” – Decision Made Right After #Soros & #Gates Bought #COVID 19 Test Manufacturer
This “decision” made by the #CDC will definitely raise the momentary value of the company, which was “coincidentally” just recently bought off by Bill #Gates and George #Soros.
The #CDC reported this weekend that “#PCR tests will soon no longer be available for emergency use to determine whether individuals have contracted #COVID-19, and seemed to tacitly admit that the tests are unable to differentiate between #COVID-19 and #influenza viruses.”
According to the report written and published by the National File,
“The CDC declared that it will #withdraw its emergency use application for the controversial #PCR tests on December 31, 2021, and is urging clinics and hospitals around the country to immediately

"No #lableak, but intentional bio-weaponization of spike proteins [by US players] to inject into people to addict them to #CV vaccines. Nothing to do with a released virus & every investigation to verify a lableak a red herring." Well researched long read.

Essence of this interview (transcript link above) with a US 'patent law' expert by a #German body trying to unravel origin of #SARSCoV2, is that virus isn't either natural or military, but a monetized virus patented before first #SARS & re-patented (+ vaccine) at intervals since. ImageImageImage
Full interview with US Patent expert here. Well worth watching to see how #BigPharma companies have been waiting, planning & patenting for a big vaccine moment for years.

1. Both #Boris & #DominicCummings wrong

Yes most deaths were over 80s who only just survived last mild #FluSeason

And wouldn't have survived next if lived that long

Death rates January to March 2020 & January to June 2021 BELOW 5 year average

And death rate 2020 only 4th.....
2. Population & age adjusted death rate for 2020 only 4th highest this century

ie THREE years since Millennium had HIGHER death rates WITHOUT #COVID1984

And EVERY year in 20th century had a higher death rate than 2020

And fatality rate FAR lower than SARS & MERS #CoronaViruses
3. No one dreamed of #LockingDown or even #MaskingUp FOR #SARS or #MERS

Despite much higher #FatalityRates

Or #ProfFerguson's wild scaremongering

But #LockDown will kill far more than #COVID1984 long term

But will kill young parents & breadwinners

Not old at death's door

It’s important to acknowledge that vaccinated people can acquire/transmit the Delta variant. While vaccinated individuals should experience less severe acute #COVID-19, they may still be at risk for LongCovid/PASC (which has been shown to develop after asymptomatic/mild COVID-19)
2/ For example, this team reported a range of long-term symptoms in a cohort of previously confirmed or presumed COVID-19 patients whose acute symptoms were largely managed without the need for hospitalization: medrxiv.org/content/10.110…
3/ This preprint documented persistent COVID-19 symptoms in 1,407 subjects with confirmed #SARS-CoV-2 infection. ∼32% of subjects reporting symptoms at 61+ days after infection were asymptomatic at the time of initial SARS-CoV-2 testing: pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33688670/

News Analysis🔎Shi Zheng-li, director of the #WuhanLab, is the common thread through which many key #GainOfFunction experiments on coronaviruses are connected.

Her work shows a curious pattern of deception tracing through her publications. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/scientists-obf…
In 2002, the #SARS outbreak resulted in the deaths of 774 people worldwide.

The SARS outbreak would prove to shape Shi’s career, moving from field research to work in level 2 biosafety labs before culminating in gain-of-function experiments in the #WuhanLab.
Her search for the originating source of the #SARS outbreak began in 2004.

Shi’s early research was captured in a 2005 article in which she reported that “that species of bats are a natural host of coronaviruses closely related to those responsible for the SARS outbreak.”

@MBVanElzakker and I are excited that our new paper on biological factors that may contribute to the development of LongCovid/PASC was published today: frontiersin.org/articles/10.33…
2/ The paper details mechanisms by which RNA #viruses beyond just #SARS-CoV-2 have be connected to long-term health consequences.
3/ It also reviews literature on acute #COVID-19 and other virus-initiated chronic syndromes such as post-#Ebola syndrome or #ME/CFS to discuss different scenarios for #LongCovid/#PASC symptom development.

In a meeting I watched today, microglia priming was mentioned in #LongCovid and #ME/CFS. It’s important to clarify what “microglia priming” means. Microglial priming does not mean that after a trigger has “cleared” microglia remain perpetually activated
2/ Instead, microglia priming goes like this 👉 When microglia or other glial cells detect #infection, injury, or inflammatory mediators, they enter a state of activation in which they change morphology and release their own neuroexcitatory inflammatory mediators
3/ Then, after activating, they retain a “primed” functional state which causes an even more robust response to *subsequent* infectious/immune/#inflammatory challenges. And as cells, microglia live long lives (they are not replaced as often as many other cell types)

A large team of virologists from several insts in China have discovered #SARSCoV2 - like viruses in bats in Yunnan Province. This pre-print contains much of interest.
- 411 bat samples were collected between May 2019 & Nov 2020.

2/
- genome analysis shows 4 novel #SARSCoV2 -related viruses
- 3 of them carry a genetically distinct spike gene that could weakly bind to the human ACE2 receptors in vitro
- and 3 other viruses were found, similar to the one that caused #SARS in 2003

3/
- the ecological niche for these bats stretches from South Laos & Vietnam & Myanmar to southern China
- genetic sequence identity for #SARSCoV2 and original #SARS of new-found viruses ranges from 94 to 97.7%
- some genomic clustering with pangolin virus seen

ARTIFICIALE E NATURALE: L’ORNITORINCO DEI VIRUS – PARTE 2
Eccoci qua! Secondo thread su origine di #SARSCoV2!
Dopo avervi spiegato perchè il virus potrebbe essere artificiale (ma anche no!), oggi invece vi raccontiamo perché NON abbiamo delle prove che il virus sia naturale 1/ Image
Se #SARSCoV2 è naturale, esiste un animale portatore, cioè animale in natura infettato da un virus quasi identico a quello umano. Non vale 92,4% del #coronavirus nei pangolini malesi, né 96,2% del virus trovato nei pipistrelli ferro di cavallo. Punto. 2/
Come per le scale in Harry Potter, anche ai virus piace cambiare. Pipistrello e pangolino potrebbero essere “serbatoio” naturale, da cui #SARSCoV2 è arrivato a noi, attraverso varie mutazioni e salti di specie intermedi. Il punto è ricostruire la mappa degli eventi. 3/

Preprint reports elevated serum inflammatory cytokine profile in #LongCovid subjects. Worth noting that an ongoing immune response towards persistent viral reservoirs of #SARS-CoV-2 and/or antigen could explain the findings: medrxiv.org/content/10.110…
2/ So the findings underscore the need to do studies that obtain tissue (via surgery or biopsy if possible) to search for #SARS-CoV-2/antigen in #LongCovid patients. Similar to what this team did (and found viral RNA/antigen in multiple tissue types!): gut.bmj.com/content/early/…
3/ Studying both the LongCovid immune response AND possible #viral reservoirs is very important for LongCovid patients to get the best treatment. If you assume the #immune response alone is the problem, standard of care could become immunosuppressive drugs
