"The metaverse... besides being immersive and interoperable, it's meta-physical, that is, a realized illusion, an impossibility in the round, able to absorb an infinite number of contradictions and convert them into fuel for growth."--Martin Gurri @mgurri greeneracresvaluenetwork.wordpress.com/2022/05/18/dai…

Tijdens de WHA wordt over zaken rondom de wereldwijde volksgezondheid vergaderd, met Covid-19 als hoofdonderwerp deze keer.

Waar wij op nationaal niveau langzaam uit het hele Covid-verhaal lijken te stappen is de WHO op internationaal niveau bezig ons aan hen te onderwerpen.

Op de agenda van deze bijeenkomst staan namelijk tal van akelige spreekpunten zoals: "Behavioural science for better health initiative", waar openlijk gesproken wordt over hoe overheden wereldwijd gedragsverandering op hun bevolking hebben toegepast en hoe die te verbeteren.

A good decision by #Randwick Council to cautiously reopen three of Sydney's popular eastern beaches, as new #COVID19 cases in #Sydney fall to a very low level and we are almost four weeks past the peak of infections in Australia - abc.net.au/news/2020-04-1…
Forget the abuse heaped on the #WorldHealthOrganization and Tedros Adhanom, by #Trump and many others, we should listen to them about a 'phased' exit from the various #Quarantine measures. news.un.org/en/story/2020/…
#UK: 120,000 detected #COVID19 infections and 16,060 deaths (237 deaths per million); #Australia: 6,612 detected COVID19 infections, 71 deaths (3 deaths per million). How might you explain the difference?

<Thread> Important critique by top expert @D_P_Fidler.

Fine-grained analysis includes explanation of United States' LEGAL OBLIGATIONS to report to #WHO what it knew about #coronavirus (when the US knew China was covering up "cataclysmic" disease).

justsecurity.org/69694/an-abuse…
2. My own added thought:

Trump criticized #WorldHealthOrganization for its recommendations on travel bans.

But note several experts took the view that the WHO position was required by the 2005 international rules—which the US helped draft and support.

3. There are valid criticisms of the #WorldHealthOrganization's handling of China and the coronavirus pandemic.

Fidler's final point is such a smart one.

Trump's approach is squandering the opportunity to have a genuine, independent retrospective review of the WHO's actions.

Un paio di cose sull'articolo pubblicato ieri da Repubblica:

1) La dichiarazione del #WorldHealthOrganization citata precisa che non ci sono ancora prove conclusive che #SARS_COV_2 sia aerotrasportato.
2) In ogni caso, "airborne" si riferisce al contagio via aerosol, che può avvenire nelle vicinanze della persona infetta. In pratica, è possibile che la trasmissione avvenga anche attraverso gocce sotto i 5 micrometri di diametro - quelle prodotte quando parliamo o respiriamo.
Questo è ovviamente uno dei motivi per cui le interazioni sociali sono al momento sconsigliate, ma non significa che si rischia il contagio aprendo la finestra.

I’m going to start an official “I did not have __________ on my 2020 bingo card from hell” thread.

First up is the apparent plot to assassinate a US ambassador because she had the courage to try to stop foreign interference in the 2020 election process. Image
OMG! Penguin overlords! 🥰

Totally late to the death panel party for this particular WTF / JFC bingo card addition. I was teaching online all day in an attempt to practice social distancing and not infect / be infected by anyone.

But, you do you Boo.
