A #Tory billionaire bankrolled ‘herd immunity’ #scientist who advised PM against lockdown
Exclusive: Johnson ruled out lockdown 24 hours after meeting with Sunetra #Gupta – resulting in ‘1.3m extra #COVID infections’
#Johnson effectively side-lined his official medical and scientific advisers to rule out a lockdown
A #scientist who advised Boris Johnson against introducing a lockdown last autumn was bankrolled by a billionaire Tory donor, openDemocracy can reveal today.
#Johnson’s apparent U-turn decision to not impose #lockdown, which experts say may have resulted in an estimated 1.3 million extra #COVID infections, came just 24 hours after meeting with Oxford epidemiologist Sunetra #Gupta. Last Year

Not so poetic (in fact one at all!) but here is a thread on my ordeal over last few days. Pl read n share this thread on #COVID19 #testing #healthtec and #bureaucracy . Its sad and if it could happen to me, it cld happen to anyone. You know that feeling when someone calls (1/9)
on ur cell frm the next room. It was my son n sure enough he was sick. High fever, backache. I quickly called the app company we’ve been using for Covid testing. Its called Klinik app n with a paranoid husband, travel n mom, we’ve done 20+ tests with ‘em. Many reminders (2/9)
later, by 8 pm, samples were collected frm me, Mom, Dad n son. We put Covid protocols in place n gave leave to all help etc. By night, he was throwing up and I had no choice but to attend to him. In all previous cases of using testing, v got our ‘negative’ reports in 18 hrs(3/9)

Covid-19: politicisation, “corruption,” and suppression of science
BMJ
doi.org/10.1136/bmj.m4…

When good science is suppressed by the medical-political complex, people die
#Politicians and #governments are suppressing #science.
They do so in the public interest, they say, to accelerate availability of diagnostics and treatments. They do so to support #innovation, to bring #products to market at unprecedented speed.
Both of these reasons are partly plausible; the greatest deceptions are founded in a grain of truth. But the underlying behaviour is troubling.
#Science is being suppressed for #political and #financial gain. #Covid-19 has unleashed state corruption on a grand scale,

Altruism is not only good for society––in an outbreak, it can also be self-serving. A thread on our modeling paper medrxiv.org/content/10.110… w/ @ivan_specht @KianSani @codeanticode and thanks @EmilyAnthes piece @NYT nytimes.com/2021/03/24/hea… 1/16
COVID-19 made clear that diagnostic testing is a highly effective tool to curb viral spread. A positive test result informs infectious individuals that they & their close contacts must self-isolate, reducing transmission. #covid19 #testing 2/16
As well-endowed institutions––e.g. schools, workplaces––sought to revive operations, they turned inwards, deploying vast resources to test their own members regularly, often w/clinical-grade tests, while surrounding communities suffered testing shortages & delays. 3/16

Enkele vragen voor @VanGuchtSteven, @vanranstmarc en andere pleiters voor strengere #avondklok: 1) Wat is het wetenschappelijke / virologische nut indien we zien dat dit in Bxl nooit tot betere resultaten heeft geleid dan in VL en WAL? #Corona #lockdown #overlegcomite #dtv 1/6
2) Indien besmettingshaarden in scholen en bedrijven te zoeken zijn, hoe zou een strengere #avondklok dan op dit moment aan die situatie kunnen verhelpen en zodoende dus een goede maatregel kunnen zijn? #Corona #overlegcomite #lockdown #dtv 2/6
3) Wanneer mogen we de eerste harde wetenschappelijke bewijzen verwachten over de gunstige effecten van de #avondklok? #Corona #overlegcomite #lockdown #dtv 3/6

Infektionsgefahr in #Schulen über belastete #Aerosole
Professor #Kähler schließt sich der #AITAsk Bewertung an:
"#Lüften alleine reicht nicht. Die Schulen wurden ja lange zugemacht, weil es eben nicht reicht". #twlz #kmk #rki
sueddeutsche.de/muenchen/landk…
Schulen sind mittlerweile wieder geöffnet, weitere Jahrgänge sollen folgen, dabei steigen bundesweit die Infektionszahlen. Gleichzeitig breitet sich die Mutante #B117 weiter aus. #Schulen sollen "eher" keine Pandemie-Treiber und dank #AHA+L sicher sein, sagt das #RKI. Stimmt das?
Eine erste Warnung, was ein #Superspreader im #Klassenzimmer bewirken kann und warum #Schulen sehr schnell zu einem Pandemie-Treiber werden können, zeigte das Ergebnis der #AITask-#Modellierung bereits im August 2020: Superspreader Klassenzimmer #twlz #kmk

If you work with #GraphQL and are CURIOUS on what the recently open source released Domain Graph Service framework by @NetflixEng is ? I have attempted a really short summary of the same below 🧵👇
#Annotation-Based : The framework’s core revolves around the annotation-based programming model familiar to Spring Boot developers. Just start the Spring Boot application, the /graphql endpoint along with the query editor on /graphiql endpoint will be available.
#Java / #Kotlin : So you can say it is primarily ofadvantage for Java developers. Regardless of whether you use Java or Kotlin, the DGS framework provides an easy way to build GraphQL services in Spring Boot.

Little is known about the interests of the #doctors, #scientists, and #academics on whose advice the #UK #government relies to manage the #pandemic.
Attempts to discover more are frequently thwarted, finds Paul D Thacker
As the number of UK deaths caused by #covid-19 reached 50 000 in early Nov, England enacted a second national lockdown to control the epidemic.
Boris Johnson’s government put these measures into action after months of controversial and sometimes confusing policies,
including the “rule of six,” regional tiered controls, and directions to “stay alert.”
At the same time, the #govt has faced mounting questions about #procurement decisions, from personal protective equipment #PPE to #testing kits, from #vaccine deals

The feeling is great when you write these types of letters/responses, especially if you have been hammered with series of “rejection letters” over the years”. @ChinazaArinzec1 can explain that feeling.
I could remember that this master’s program was to take me through 🇫🇷, 🇪🇸, and 🇨🇿 . Dear scholarship enthusiasts, keep putting in those strong applications so you get to enjoy not only one YES, but multiple YESSSS (This can be your target too).😁
And when you get multiple opportunities; (1) Ensure you get all the offers in black & white before writing/signing any letter to decline a scholarship offer. (2) Don’t waste too much time in choosing one offer. Remember, you need to give chance to others on the waiting

#NowReading a great article on "learning loss"

"Of course, the term "learning loss" comes from the language of test enthusiasts."

forbes.com/sites/johnewin…
I love this, especially “an increase in correct responses is gain; a decrease is loss.”

Exposing so many of the problems that plague the way we use test scores and draw inappropriate conclusions from them. Image
Zing!

“Learning loss is a calculation masquerading as a concept”

We recently explored: A Rockefeller communication manual on #contacttracing, the [Share] Verified (UN/Purpose) guide on vaccine #communications, & insights from The #Vaccine Confidence Project.
Here is another from The Behavioral Insights Team - "at the heart of the #UK gov't".
Spun from the "heart of the UK gov't", The Behavioral Insights Team expanded to a global consulting firm "w/ offices around the world... Our work spanned 31 countries in the last year alone...Our growing portfolio of #BI #Ventures makes #behaviouralscience-backed tools..."
The strategic & coordinated campaigns for global vaccine roll-outs & uptake, must be understood as #advertising/ marketing. The more subtle, the more effective. Billions $$$ have been invested for one simple reason: huge returns. What we see today - has been years in the making.
