THREAD 1/9
L'étrange histoire de Peter Sands, formé à #Oxford pour devenir consultant chez #McKinsey en 1988. Il a étudié à #Harvard en 2015 et dirige depuis 2017 le plus gros fonds mondial pour la vaccination : The Global Fund. Il est également responsable de la santé au #WEF
23/01/2019, Davos #WEF, Bill Gates enchaine les interviews à l'envie avec un discours bien rôdé . Ici avec Francine Lacqua la journaliste de Bloomberg TV, sponsorisé par Accenture, cabinet de conseil très sollicité par le gouvernement #Macron
Il va lâcher plusieurs bombes :
- Il a investi $10 Mds dans son plan de vaccination mondial mais son fonds est en réalité doté de $100 Mds grâce aux dons des différents gouvernements étrangers.
- Il espère un retour sur investissement 20X supérieur soit $200 Mds, juteux !

1. "Operation Warp Speed" or how to develop'n produce vaccine in 14 months instead of 73.
With 14 months timeline ending on 1/1/2021🧐🗓️
We should probably read april, but that's a detail…

2. 12-month FDA review is replaced by a continuous control of safety and efficacy data.
It really must have been a tremendous work to inspect hundreds of trial sites and dozens of manufacturing units… Image
3. But this @USGAO report tells us that only 58 #FDA biological inspections were conducted from April 2020 to March 2021, up from 1,500 in the previous 12 months. <30 before December.

Comment pourrait-on croire que les tests de #Pfizer ou #Moderna aient pu faire l'objet de contrôles sérieux?
*Operation Warp Speed* qui a pour but "un vaccin pour octobre 2020" est pilotée par le… Régulateur en chef pour les vaccins au sein de la #FDA
nytimes.com/2020/11/21/us/…
Dr Peter Marks est donc le superviseur des contrôles des recherches et productions de vaccin et joue en même temps le super-accélérateur de toutes ces opérations.
Car, pour #Trump, la priorité est d'annoncer le vaccin avant l'élection de novembre.
Ce sera raté de quelques jours🤏🏼
Bourla et Bancel n'avaient sans doute rien à gagner à faire acclamer leurs résultats par un président en campagne.
Un peu de discrétion ne pouvait pas nuire.🐾

Delighted to present our paper in #BMJ today.

Detailed prospective study of 651 #children admitted with #SARSCoV2 across 138 UK hospitals

Here are some of the key findings:

bmj.com/content/370/bm…
1. Severe disease was rare in children and death was extremely rare.

- Children under 19 made up less than 1% of all patients admited with #SARSCoV2 (651 / 69516 patients of all ages)

- Extremely low in-hospital mortality rate (<1% in children vs 27% in adults)
2. All 6 deaths were associated with profound comorbity / concurrent illness.

- 3 were neonates (1 = very premature, 1 = congenital abnorm, 1 = bacterial sepsis)

- 3 were 15-18 year olds (2 = profound neurodisability and 1 = malignancy on chemotherapy)

A great public service to have a doctor on Monday's @JeremyVineOn5. 👍

🤔 Or was it?
JV introduces "a great doctor"...
@drdavidbull.

2/8
In what galaxy is Mr Bull a 'great doctor'?
Maybe he was 25 years ago- the last time he worked in the #NHS.
Since he gave up (& after we'd paid the entirety of his 6+ yrs medical training), he's been a model, a 'TV doctor' & a property speculator. 💰
3/8
I know a couple who qualified around the same time as Mr Bull.
They've run an extremely busy 14,000 patient surgery for decades, incorporating GP trainees on site & at Uni on their 'days off'.

Who's been the best value to the taxpayer & #NHS for their £100K+ training?

About 6 years ago I was diagosed with rare genetic blood #cancer called polycythemia. Since then it’s progressed & become post-polycythemia vera myelofibrosis. 36 months ago I was also diagnosed with multiple myeloma.

I have fought every single day to stay alive. I’m alive bcos we belong to #Euratom European atomic energy community - it also deals with medical radiation treatments.

For more on Euratom see here:

I also rely on the British participation in the ERN’s. These are European Reference Networks which allow collaboration across EU member states and they do essential work on #rarediseases making my, & many other ppl’s, treatment possible.
