Recently, @GeorgeNDP, a @bcndp hack, went into a full Twitter-tantrum because @SoniaFurstenau appropriately and soundly criticized the nonsense Dr. Henry and the @CDCofBC have been spouting on Covid prevention. So here’s a thread on public health and science.
All top positions in governmental public health agencies are occupied by MDs with a specialization in public health. And while MDs sure are doctors, they aren’t the kind of doctors trained to do science. They are the kind of doctors trained to do medicine.
Public health MDs spend only a fraction of their training years learning research-relevant skills and often none at all doing research. By opposition, someone with a Ph.D. will have spent 5 to 8 years exclusively learning research skills.

A #LongCovid thread. I (likely) had Covid early in 2020. Now, almost two years later I’m stuck with some annoying (and scary) long Covid symptoms. I thought I would share in case it helps others. @brish_ti
On Jan 25, 2020, before there were supposed to be cases in #BC, my wife got real sick. Very high fever, severe muscle pain, coughing. We thought it was the flu. She was bed bound for 3 days. But she had a funny symptom: she lost the sense of smell.
We thought nothing of if because nobody knew anything about #Covid-19 at that point. A few days later I felt somewhat under the weather. Not really sick. Just not great. But no real symptoms. And that was it. We thought it was all over.

You might not know this, but the #Kazakhstan government has reportedly been overthrown & the country has collapsed. It's "leaders" have run away fearing for their lives.

Overview of #Kazakhstan civil war & collapse of their government.👇
➡️It reportedly started when banks denied unvaccinated citizens access to their funds. I have heard early rumblings about this here in #BC & #Canada.

#Omicron is in #BC and provinces across #Canada, and it moves fast. Cases in #ON are doubling every 2-3 days. The need for #RapidTests is greater than ever. One key issue is how well the tests work for individuals and populations. So let’s talk about it. 🧵1/
In #PoPBC Briefing 3 on testing, @VicLeungIDdoc gave us the run down on rapid tests:
-Usually they are a shallow nose (not deep like a PCR test) or mouth swab
-You analyze at home
-Get the results in 15 minutes
One of the big questions here, is how well do rapid antigen tests work? And the answer is really really well if you want to know if you are infectious and can transmit to someone else.

This year of death and destruction has brought out the best in the communities of #BC, and has exposed the incompetence of our provincial and federal disaster management systems.

A thread on my frustration with the communication we received while we were stuck at #HopeBC.
Our @bcndp government has a deep seated inability to communicate with its constituents. While stranded, the only advice we received from our politicians was: look to the @DriveBC webpage for highway reopenings---almost always reading "assessment in progress, next update at XX."
Then without notice, at 4:55 PM on Wednesday, Nov 17th, 3 days after the closure, @TranBC announced a limited opening of #Hwy7 at 5 PM to allow westbound travel from #HopeBC. Ironically, this information was not posted on the @DriveBC page all evening, only on its twitter feed.

I'm starting to wonder if, from the time of the first March 2020 emergency lockdown, that early success - everyone in #BC uniting behind the goal of slowing viral transmission - actually terrified provincial leaders.
Because they have certainly done their damnedest to divide us - in the most callous ways - ever since.
Having slowed transmission to such low levels by June 2020, imagine if #BC had adopted #COVIDZero protocols. Seeing that we could save lives, keep ppl healthy long before vaccines became available, feeling good about this, imagine if we had stayed united -

Dear @ImmunizeBC @bc_pharmacy @CDCofBC ->
I have a few Q's: (begin thread)
1/ Can you confirm whether #QIIV (high dose Fluzone) #SeasonalFluShots will be available in #BC?
(I read today via @RexallDrugstore "only in ONT" Will they be avail in BC at some point as well?) @BCPoli
Q: 2/@CDCofBC (and my doc) "Recommends Quadrivalent Inactivated Influenza Vaccine (QIIV) (Fluzone)" for ppl (like me) w/conditions such as:
65+, diabetes, asthma, RA ...
3/Specifically, I'd like clarification - if it in fact high dose *is/will be* available...who qualifies? Is it any/everyone 65+,or only those in #LTC, assisted living/1st nations?
This clip via @bc_pharmacy is confusing...

1/ Yesterday, #Canada’s prime minister & prince of blackface @JustinTrudeau announced that all Canadians must be fully va__inated in order to travel via plane, train & boat. The @liberal_party is implementing fascism style segregation. Why are they doing this?

#cdnpoli #ontario
2/ The main reason why is because well, their va__ine mandates are just not working, so they need to take away more freedoms & rights from Canadians.

Va__ine passport policy started
Sept 1st in #Quebec & Sept 20th in #Ontario, but va__ination rate has been on the decline since
3/ The va__ine passport policy in #BC has also shown no effect on lowering CV19 cases. BC started started their va__ine passports on Sept 13th, but their CV19 cases have been spiking & reaching significantly high levels regardless of va__ine mandates

@prof_nch Unfortunately, #BC #PHO made a ministerial exemption for profs/presenters/lecturers to unmask while teaching if they maintain a 2m barrier or are behind ‘a barrier’. I have objected to this not only on the science but also on the ethics.
@prof_nch When faculty colleagues signaled their unmasking exemption interests via email—I pointed out the power bias of STUDENTS being put in the position to police faculty for maintaining 2m—which is a LOT farther than people think. Brought in a 2m cardboard tube to demo to my students.
@prof_nch I sent 2nd email with the Marin County #US @CDCgov case study where temporarily unmasked teacher infected 1/2 a masked, distanced class with air filtration, open windows & doors—& provided a color coded image of class chart on pg 2…

@Buckleygkml @ctv_shannon TY @Buckleygkml . You really got me thinking/studying - role/job of PHO vs MOH. Just a couple of things b4 I get to main thoughts.
a. True I don't hold current PHO in high esteem; Perhaps my cynicism was showing and translated as spite. 1/
@Buckleygkml @ctv_shannon 2/ b.I had assumed (perhaps wrongly... we'll get to that).. that a PHO, by definition, would know the numbers/extent of health care workers in #BC. Esp. since PHO had just announced (vax) mandate affecting every one of them.
@Buckleygkml @ctv_shannon 3/ It just seemed logical to me - that in considerations leading up to + resulting in mandating new regulations; a significant aspect of such decisions, would be knowing who would be affected- ie: to whom the mandate applies

We also need to talk about the pediatric bed situation in #BC.

While all hospital resources are limited, the number of pediatric beds cannot be rapidly increased b/c they need to be staffed by HCWs trained in pediatric care.

A thread.


#COVIDBc #BCed #bcpoli
According to Child Health BC, BC has 231 general pediatric beds and 27 (yes 27) pediatric ICU beds.… from "Children's Medical Services Part 1 - July 2021"

Per provincial data there are 570,634 children in BC under the age of 12. These children cannot yet be vaccinated.

Of these, 296,420 are school aged (6-11 years old).

#BREAKING B.C. Chief Coroner Lisa LaPointe says there has been a significant increase in deaths where it is suspected that extreme heat 'has been contributory.' Normal: 130 deaths from Fri. to Mon. At least 233 deaths over the past 4 days. #bcpoli #bcheat #bc
Wait times for ambulances and help are suffering. In Burnaby, there have been 34 sudden deaths (15 yesterday, 19 as of noon today). LaPointe says the death total will rise as new data is added. #bcpoli #bcheat #bc…
In Vancouver, a police spokesperson said officers have responded to 65 sudden deaths since Friday but that its tally is
“changing by the hour as people are sadly discovering loved ones.” #bcpoli #bcheat #bc

#BC ought to be grateful for work of @PennyDaflos asking hard questions & keeping officials accountable to truth & science during #COVID19 👉👉…
#DrBHenry gaslit #BC that she would ‘follow the science’: “Responses from British Columbia officials are part of a damning analysis on the reluctance by public health to acknowledge the airborne transmission of #COVID19 despite scientific consensus on the matter.”
#DrBHenry @adriandix & #BC #PHO ongoing refusal to recognize the primary transmission route of #COVID19 by #aerosol mechanism surely hobbled #BC response—to what extent & cost —ultimately in lives lost, #longCOVID, trauma, suicides, etc. have yet to be determined
