UK now has #polio being found repeatedly in its wastewater.
Now's a good time to review your family's vaccination status. Whooping cough, tetanus, measles, mumps rubella, varicella, etc.
If it's going to be a return to the bad old days make sure you're prepared.
The reason I say this, is that vaccination rates are dropping in communities everywhere. #NewZealand rates are atrocious.
There will likely be more #measles outbreaks this year. 1/1000 kids who get it will die, 1000 will be brain damaged. It's vaccine-preventable.
With #polio historically a very infectious, easily transmitted, and super common disease of poverty and the unvaccinated, infants and kids are at risk.
The vast majority of infected will recover fine...and a few will be severely paralyzed for life.
Easily vaccine-prevented tho.

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.

Here are 2 family members, similar ages/#MedTwitter history, #vaxxed & #boosted, dev symptoms & tested pos same day, got Paxlovid same day. Day 4 tests below. Why are we still using a 'one size fits all' strategy to exit isolation when rapid tests are readily available, @CDCgov ?
I doubt policy will change (note: shortening isolation to 5d was done to minimize societal impact from loss of essential workers to isolation in Jan #Omicron wave), so you should choose to rapid test to exit isolation. A positive = contagious, no matter how many days it's been.
Here's another example. Two more people, again similar age/health history, both vaxxed and boosted. On the left, patient #1 on day #13. On the right, patient #2 on day #5. We'll see what happens with patient #2 but I'd be willing to bet they can leave isolation well before 2 wks.

Invited to a destination wedding earlier in Apr. Awesome place that holds a special place in my ❤️(Vail). Lots of people I miss. All #vaxxed. Many boosted. No masks required. No rapid tests. Declined. One positive couple next AM. Groom & all but 4 guests got #COVID19. #pandemic
In care you’re wondering who did NOT get infected, the common elements were 4 doses of #COVID19 vaccine OR known/suspected past infection + 3 doses of vaccine, with last dose being recent.
That includes the bride. But if you want to know how to put that “in sickness and in health” thing in action, having discordant #COVID19 test results when you should be honeymooning is one way. 🤒👎

I now know where Paxlovid is & isn’t available is about a third of US states.

1/🧵🎥 “It’s a very bad disease. It can be overcome.”
 
My #COVID patient tearfully speaks of his BIG DECISION on the ventilator.

This soldier & leukemia survivor made it through 3 weeks on a ventilator. How?
 
Video shown w his permission “to help others find hope, Doc.”

2/ This immunocompromised man was in massive viral septic shock from COVID.

Huge doses of vasopressors.

Gargantuan levels of O2 & vent pressure to save his life.

Lungs, Kidneys, Heart and Brain all failed.
3/ His wife was there with him daily.

We put up pictures of his kids and pets.

We talked to him about the things he loved every day (even when sedated and seemingly unable to hear us).

Somewhere in all of that, he made a silent decision…

1/🧵 WAKE UP - #COVID is a Ball & Chain for heart disease & stroke.
 
This 154,000 pt study & others solidify COVID as a PREDICTOR of a variety of CardioVascular Dzs.
 
Translation: #LongCOVID pts suffer heart attacks, strokes & much more.
 
#Vaccinate!

2/ SHOCKER: Amazing work scientifically. Every med student is taught to gauge Cardiovascular risk history: Smoking, Obesity, HTN, Cholesterol, Family History…

Add COVID to the list. Solid data from @NatureMedicine of US Veterans used >11M contemporary + historical controls!
3/ Main figure shows both hazard ratios & excess burden per 1,000 persons of highlighted types of problems like strokes, V Tach & #POTS, myocarditis, heart attacks, heart failure & blood clots in 154,000 people 30 days after COVID vs. 5,637,647 contemporary controls.

1/🧵 What is #LongCOVID⁉️
 
A disabling malady from ongoing inflammation, autoimmunity, & potential viral reservoirs (GI, brain?)
 
NEW DATA: The Lungs “light up” on special MRI Scans 3 to 9 months later in patients never hospitalized for COVID.
 
bit.ly/344Oajp
2/ These #LongCOVID pts had NORMAL CT scans but when asked to inhale Xenon, an inert gas, the MRI showed their lungs transferred gases (think oxygen) into the bloodstream abnormally. This is alarming evidence of another weird form of organ damage from COVID not visible on CXR/CT.
3/ Oxford Prof Dr. Gleeson says these patients, who were never in hospital & didn’t have acute severe illness w their COVID19, have been experiencing symptoms for a year after contracting the infection.

1/🧵 WHY are Booster Rates so low⁉️

Only 1 in 4 Americans is Boosted. People get vaxxed & then bag the best protective approach.

I honestly don’t get it??

Let’s review some studies:

750k people boosted (Pfizer) showed 90% ⬇️ in death vs non-boosted.

bit.ly/33WQ2tK
2/ Another study of ~750k people showed vaccine (Pfizer) effectiveness at 7 days after 3rd dose w 93% effectiveness. WOW

BLUE (3 doses) on this graph shows WAY better protection than RED (2 doses) =
⬇️ hospitalization
⬇️ severe dz
⬇️ death

It’s clear!

bit.ly/3KuHDic
3/ And that explains clear results posted by @DrEricDing 👇 that show impressive reductions in hospital admissions…

You want to stay safe at home right??

You don’t want me as your doctor because that comes w an ICU & ventilator. Get #boosted.

#Propaganda #protip: Never underestimate the power of the Big Lie. There have been NO studies about the implications of this, long term, because there CAN’T be. They would have had to sit on the #vax for YEARS to conduct them. We’ll find out the implications in future years.
Did you know the word “cisapride.” It’s the name of a drug introduced to the U.S. market in 1993, and ‘voluntarily’ withdrawn from the market in 2000. (It’s still available for vet use). Why was it withdrawn? It kills people. OOPS!

How did it ever get approved?
There were deaths among the test subjects in the clinical trials. But there didn’t seem like a lot of deaths, it was plausible that they were coincidental, so the regulators made a judgment call and approved it.

That is not a scandal. The scandal came later.

1/ It wasn't a conspiracy theory, it was a #CrimeAgainstHumanity...and it came from Florida. 🧵

The GOP started lying about COVID when Trump called it a "hoax". THAT lie has cost hundreds of thousands of American🇺🇲 lives. It also made them and their friends billions $$.

#Facts
2/ Trump said it was a hoax on Feb 27, 2020. Community transmission was being confirmed in multiple cities in the US. Around the world, case numbers were increasing exponentially everywhere one was found, and economic disruptions began roiling global financial markets.

3/ Four Republican Senators on the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee who knew how bad the virus was, sold their stocks ahead of a market collapse which saw equity valuations plunge up to 40% worldwide in a matter of weeks.

1/🧵🎥 COVID & Thanksgiving Safety: 🍁

Use of Rapid Antigen Testing❓

I’m getting lots of QUESTIONS about eating Tgiving turkey w people who are not #Vaxxed. A very safe thing to do is have people cleared by a rapid Ag test.

Watch 2 min👇: @michaelmina_lab & I’ll unpack…
2/ It’s NOT a brain biopsy like PCR. More like picking your nose. 😂

Legit Rapid Ag tests you get commercially at a drugstore or online will tell you: AM I INFECTIOUS?

Am I shedding COVID virions in a quantity that places others at risk.

I’m NOT endorsing any one test here. Image
3/ PCR is the most sensitive way to detect COVID globally. @US_FDA & @CDCgov say so and that’s technically accurate. But (1) PCR takes too long & is not practical for YOUR purposes (outdated by the time you’re w mom). (2) PCR will stay positive way longer than you are infectious!

1/🧵COVID Antibody Lunacy 🌚

Antibodies can NOT be used “rule out” #LongCOVID and should NOT be used to determine if you are immune or if the vaccine “worked.” This perspective in @JAMA_current outlines flaws in such thinking. I review highlights…👇

bit.ly/3ckYFQ0
2/ The FDA already stated we don’t have established thresholds to interpret Antibody tests.

They are NOT usable reliably to see if you were infected (esp after vaccine). The tests are not standardized yet & WHO doesn’t include in #LongCOVID definition.

bit.ly/3ljLpQK
3/ If you’re trying to prove you had COVID or #Vaxx response, don’t fall for $170 direct to consumer testing for routine Antibody checks. It’s not nearly that simple.

EG: #Vaxxed or previously infected people could test negative on some assays despite having immunity.

One year ago, I was diagnosed with COVID-19. Wasn’t vaccinated. I survived without many side effects at the time, but I developed a blood clot in March that traveled up to my brain and 4 strokes later, I could’ve died. But I didn’t, and now I’m here begging you to get #vaccinated
To be clear, COVID vaccines were not available in my area of the US at the time. I did get vaccinated as soon as I could though. Thank you so much for supporting me through this 💖💖💖💕
One more thing I want to add, the connection between #COVID and blood clot was noted by my team of neurologists during my month in the hospital, plus each of 3 neurologists I’ve met outside the hospital. I’ve joined every research study I’ve been invited to. Get #vaxxed, please

#ThisIsHilarious.

The entire program of the #Left is that people do not get held responsible for their actions. People who don't work get welfare, people who destroy their health with alcohol and drugs get medical care. In return, no obligations on the recipients.
Now we see it was always a #lie. The obligation was to obey the ruling class. Staying poor was what the bosses wanted the poor to do. Their misery provides the smoke screen for the rulers' real goal: exercising power because they like it.
Cutting people off from medical care because they ate the wrong things, used the wrong drugs, had the wrong kind of sex was evil, because it would remove the rulers' excuses for action. THOSE people have an absolute right to "health care," paid for by the productive.

Cosmopolitan liberal journalists only know how to parrot intelligence community and pentagon talking points, socially engineer the gullible or less well off socio-economically, exploit fears, create negative feedback loops, confirm one another's bias and hyperventilate
They are smug and see themselves as morally and intellectually superior to "regular" citizens. They show special disdain for blue collar workers and the "middle" America. They LOVE controlling and influencing those they see as "beneath" them....
The cosmopolitan liberal journalist in the modern age is tasked with the job of social engineering. The work for the regime to instill obedience to authority in the population. #obedience #socialengineering #journalists

1/🧵🎥 Tennessee has highest #COVID19 case rate IN THE WORLD 🌎‼️

1/3rd are KIDS, & we haven’t even peaked!

Dr. Jeff Balser, @VUMChealth President & CEO, explains our dire situation. Despite 375M doses of #Vaccine is US alone, we have ~50% overall #Vaxxed & need YOUR help.
2/ This surge is different. The children are disproportionately affected – 1 in 3 new cases. Overall, and this is hard to believe, but we are at our ALL TIME HIGH in admissions. Image
3/ 🎥 Except for immunocompromised patients, almost all in hospital are #unvaxxed. We are re-deploying OR personnel to the ICU and having to curb care for non-COVID pts. It’s just not fair to them. Not getting vaxxed means more suffering for everyone.

1/🧵 EVIL & the #AntiVaxx Movement:
 
By no means do I think the #Unvaxxed patients filling our ICUs to capacity are evil. NO. But I do think there is evil involved in the misinformation leading many good, caring people to that decision. And I listen to each. Please hear me out.
2/ Philosophers define evil as “a deprivation of the rationality that proper human action requires individually and as a member of society.” In that sense, we can discuss choosing not to be vaccinated and “cooperation with evil.”
3/ Thus far, “cooperation with evil” has been used as an argument by some in the #antivaxx culture as a reason NOT to get #Vaccinated. The main argument is that Pfizer and Moderna were safety texted w the HEK-293 fetal cell line.

1/🧵 Should a man who HAS COVID be allowed at the bedside in N95+PPE to be with his dying wife? In last week’s poll, votes cast made it clear that whether he’d gotten #vaccinated mattered a lot. 2 out of 3 said NO if he had not gotten #vaxxed.

WHY did people answer this way?
2/ This poll was stimulated by an actual patient/spouse situation I had where they both had COVID, and the spouse who wanted to visit the dying patient had just tested positive. (Thus, actively shedding virus.) I wondered if vaccination status would matter to people.
3/ For me as a physician, vaccination status does NOT factor into hospital visitation.

but SAFETY DOES!

⚠️ To understand the state of societal danger right now, I want to put forth an analogy about DEATH using airplanes. Bear with me…

1/🧵6 Things I’m weary of hearing in the ICU:
 
1. “My kids came back from church camp & gave me #COVID.”
 
2. “Doc [BREATH] let me [BREATH] text my family [BREATH] BYE 💔…[BREATH] before you sedate me”… she gasps as we prepare to put her on a ventilator
2/
3. “I have health problems, so I was afraid to get the #Vaccine, and my doc didn’t weigh in.”
 
4. “My OB told me not to get the vaccine because I was pregnant.” (so many lost babies & tears)
 
5. “Doc, I’m double #vaxxed, but I let me guard down and now I’m suffocating.”
3/fin

6. "Dr. Ely, I am going to live! #COVID is terrible. Over a dozen of us ended up with it from a Goofy Ladies’ Tea. It sure leaves you weak, confused, and afraid to go out." (shared w permission)
 
Please #Vax & #maskup more diligently!

I’m a Pediatrician = ❤️👶🏽🧑🏻👩🏾. I have worked in Children’s Hospitals, on medivac teams and now in the North. These are my thoughts on what we are facing with #Delta going into the fall
1. Wave 4 of #COVID will be a pandemic of #misinformation, under-vaccination and inadequate mitigating public health interventions (removing mask mandate, not addressing school ventilation, etc). We have reached the limits of what “encouraging people to get vaccinated” can do.
2. Who will pay the price? #Children, esp children < 12 who can’t be #VaxXed. It is misleading to say “not that many kids die”. #Mortality is a pretty crude outcome measure in #Pediatrics. What about disability, medical trauma, impact on families, mental health?
