I have been in academia a long time and need to share a dark underbelly- people who take/co-opt stuff from you & call their own. This has happened to me and @jeannefarnan so many times earlier in my career we lost count (slides, words, ideas, sayings) (THREAD) 1/n
Earlier in my career, I "took the high road" often and held my head up high and did not say much. But, it's maddening to see it happen years later to your colleagues who work super hard and especially #womeninmedicine and #womeninSTEM 2/n
My friend @lindsleininger of @DearPandemic and I along with our @IMPACT4HC teams put a lot of work into a #StaySMART infographic to help people prepare for Summer. It's been out since June 4. @lindsleininger has been all over TV/webinars w these tips! 3/n

1/ I’m stuck on something (and happy to be shown where I'm off on this one...)

High case counts are worrying, don’t get me wrong, but not ready to throw away science on age-adjusted IFR

eg: ~30,000 infections in age 20-49 w/ 2 deaths (Swiss preprint)…
2/ Not zero risk, of course, but younger are much, much lower risk of death.
3/ we should *already* be seeing deaths, not just cases, from reopening that started on Mem Day.

~1 week incubation, ~2 weeks to progress to hospitalization, ~1 week lag in death reports

Cases were already on the rise by June 14, as expected👇

1/ Q: There's inevitably going to be some socializing this summer. How do I stay safe? How do I tell my kids and my parents to stay #safe?

A: #StaySMART!
2/ Wow, these are some unusual times! Some of us are in the streets every day with large groups, some of us haven't left our homes in months.

Help!?!? How can we socialize while keeping ourselves and others safe from #COVIDー19?
3/ The Dear Pandemic Nerdy Girls are delighted to partner with @IMPACT4HC to offer this handy infographic to help you remember 5 simple rules of thumb for reducing your #COVID19 transmission risk: Stay SMART!

S: SPACE -- Keep your #socialdistance, 6ft. or more!

Kindly ignore the delusions of herbalists and their enablers on the unproven remedies regarding the #Coronavirus pandemic. Please stick to @WHO advisory. There is no homemade remedy that cures. You are not dealing with a bacteria infection that can be killed. @SIAF_NG 🦠
The virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipid (fat), which, when absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or buccal mucosa, changes their genetic code (mutation) and convert them into aggressor and multiplier cells.
This is why all the findings about the #COVID19 virus have been progressive and developmental. We learn new things daily about it. It wasn’t of late that we realized it can survive on surfaces thereby triggering #SafeSurface Science research and campaign. 🦠
