👶🏽👱🏻‍♀️🧔🏽👧🏻👵🏼👳🏾‍♂️

The #AMR Action Fund launched today aims to reverse this trend by supporting the development of new antibiotics
Urgent action is needed to halt the🌐spread of #AMR.

With the AMR Action Fund launched today, the research & development of new life-saving #antibiotics will be strengthened & accelerated, focusing both on priority pathogens & innovative new treatments.

As a record number of countries are now monitoring & reporting on #antibioticresistance, new data reveals that a worrying number of bacterial infections are increasingly resistant to the medicines 💊 at hand to treat them.

👉 bit.ly/36NYDwx
High rates of resistance among antimicrobial medicines frequently used to treat common infections, such as urinary tract infections or some forms of diarrhea, indicate that the world is running out of effective ways to tackle these diseases.

👉 bit.ly/36NYDwx
The increase of #antimicrobialresistance could further be fueled by the inappropriate use of antibiotics during the #COVID19 pandemic.

Great news: a piece I wrote for @policyatkings called “What can farmers teach politicians?” (kcl.ac.uk/news/what-can-…) is out!

In it: a) I go through data that shows how well #Britishfarmers have done, in partnership with other stakeholders, to cut down on #antibiotics use. 1/4
b) I discuss how this type of voluntary, multilateral action by key stakeholders (regardless of affiliation) can benefit society overall, and

c) I then extend this to our personal and political situations. This piece was inspired by conversations I had at #AntibioticAge 2/4
…the @Bristol_AMR conference organised by @mutantbug. These conversations, in person with @Reyher_UofBVet and @OxonAndrew, as well as on Twitter with @FarmingUK and @RUMA_UK, have really shaped my vision of how we can concretely achieve improvements to #OneHealth through ag. 3/4

RT: Revisiting #Anthrax '01 Scare W/ Fresh 👀

What justifies investing in #smallpox #vaccines & #antibiotics against #Anthrax (a bacteria), asks @Dennis_Kucinich

"We're preparing 4 something much more dramatic," responds #HHS Thompson

@EJKucinich

#FauciTheFraud on the 👉
By 2002, the criminal FBI investigation into the #anthrax scare fizzled.

"It's time for Americans to think the unthinkable: that the FBI has never been keen to identify the perpetrator because that perpetrator may, in fact, be the U.S. Govt itself"

globalresearch.ca/fort-detrick-s…
The #anthrax scare screamed of fuckery & the Hegalian Dialectic.

It was arguably used to pass the Patriot Act. To justify germ warfare research.

👀@ #Fauci & listen to #Thomspon when @Dennis_Kucinich asks about #FtDetrick, biological agents & public health

🧼🚰🙌🏻#Handwashing with soap & water removes germs (i.e. #SARS_CoV_2 that causes #COVID19) from hands. This helps prevent infections because people frequently touch their 👀👃🏻👄without even realizing it. Germs can get into the body through the eyes, nose, mouth & make us sick.
Germs from unwashed hands can get into food & drinks while people prepare / consume them. Germs can multiply in some types of food / drinks, under certain conditions, and make people sick. [h/t Donna Gill Allen] #handwashing #scicomm iflscience.com/chemistry/this…
Germs from unwashed hands can be transferred to other objects, like handrails, table tops, or toys, and then transferred to another person’s hands. #handwashing #scicomm [h/t US CDC]

#COVID19 #CoronaVirus

🇮🇹#Italia Superspreader #Cluster THREAD 1/7🏨

Drew a #dataviz diagram based on available data* about the #Lombardy cluster, which as of EOD 2/22/20 had 54 cases, including 2 in #Milano, & still an unknown Patient 0.

*plz excuse any possible errors
2/7 This cluster has developed quite rapidly in the town of #Lodi, near #Milan, in the #Lombardy region of #Italy.

The story has shifted several times on Patient 0, but somehow Patient 1 - a 38 y/o male in Lodi - contracted the #COVID19 virus.

When Patient 1 had symptoms...
3/7 ...he went to the #ER at the local Codogno #hospital multiple X, but was sent home with only #antibiotics (which don't work on #COVID19italia)

He then infected his pregnant wife & friends.

Of the 1st group of ~6, all were in serious condition.

It's #WorldAntibioticAwarenessWeek 💊

Misusing and overusing #antibiotics puts us ALL at risk.

You can play a crucial role in reducing #antibioticresistance: only use antibiotics when they were prescribed by a qualified health professional!
@WHOThailand @WHOSriLanka @WHOIndonesia @WHO @WHOTimorLeste @MoHmv @MoHFW_INDIA @UNinIndia @UN_Nepal @MoHFW_GUJARAT The future of #antibiotics depends on all of us.

Drug-resistance is circulating among humans, animals and the environment. #Antibiotic resistance occurs naturally, but misuse of antibiotics in humans and animals is accelerating the process.

@WHO_Europe @WHOSEARO @pahowho @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @WHOAFRO @DrTedros @UN_News_Centre Overuse and misuse of antibiotics are the leading causes of antimicrobial resistance. Without effective #antibiotics💊 and other antimicrobials, we will lose our ability to treat common infections like pneumonia.

CIMAR Director Dr. Helen Boucher (@hboucher3) is in Washington today to testify to the House Committee on Oversight and Reform Subcommittee on National Security on “U.S. Biodefense, Preparedness, and Implications of #AntimicrobialResistance for National Security.” #AMR #DISARM
Per their website, “The Subcommittee will evaluate the readiness of the US government and healthcare system, including hospitals and emergency professionals, to respond to naturally-occurring pandemics and biological attacks that could be perpetrated by state & non-state actors.”
“The Subcommittee will also investigate the growing threat of antimicrobial-resistance, as well as the implications of this challenge for US national security.” @Hboucher3 will also discuss ideas for stimulating the #abx market so new drugs can be developed. #DISARM #DISARMAct

The end of another semester of engaging students with @WikiEducation at @MissouriSandT @sandtcasb in #HistSCI means another tweet thread about this super fun project.
49 students, 32 articles, 40K words added, +285K views so far. I love their work! Take a look!
I'm going to group them. First group-- #WomenInSTEM #WomeninHistory
Students found that, uh oh, it's HARD to find reliable sources on women in science! This didn't stop them, though. They pushed through and learned some new research skills.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annie_S._… is 1 product.
Tycho's sister, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophia_Br… was another article that needed work. The women who worked on this one had to find all sources on Tycho then sift through for the 2-3 pages about Sophia. Thank goodness for good #librarians at S&T who were patient and helpful!
