1/5 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦: while we’ve passed peak #omicron, measures are still needed to relieve the pressure on our hospitals. In particular, closing vaccine coverage gaps and maintaining core personal protective practices.…
2/5 In particular, millions of eligible Canadians could reduce their risk of ending up in hospital with severe COVID-19 disease by getting up-to-date with #COVID19Vaccines/mRNA #Booster as eligible/ recommended.
3/5 Evidence shows two doses of #COVID19Vaccines offer reasonably good protection against severe disease, and getting an mRNA booster dose as eligible offers superior protection, keeping more people out of hospital and preventing more deaths.

1/4 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦: in good news, today is the first day all jurisdictions are reporting a decline in their latest 7-day average case counts. Infection rates are still elevated/activity still widespread, but trending in the right direction!…
2/4 Protecting this progress and ↓ severe illness trends across the country, is helped by more people getting up-to-date with #COVID19Vaccines and by all of us maintaining precautions like wearing masks & avoiding crowding. #VaccinesPlus
3/4 Two doses of mRNA #COVID19Vaccines provide reasonable protection against severe Omicron disease (~64%-86% vaccine effectiveness), which ↓ over time since 2nd dose. However, protection ↑ to ~90% or more after an mRNA #BoosterDose.

Ich lese in letzter Zeit öfter Beschreibungen aus pädiatrischen Praxen wie diese von @CorneliaBeeking. Ich bin weder Pädiater, noch Virologe, noch Immunologe oder Epidemiologe, aber ich habe eine Meinung dazu als Arzt und informierter Vater. Und los geht’s…
Zunächst mal muss man sagen, dass natürlich jede:r Kinderärztin/Kinderarzt seine eigene Meinung haben darf. Aber es darf nie eine Patientengefährdung stattfinden, was in der oben beschriebenen Praxis ganz eindeutig der Fall ist.
Bei klar patientengefährdendem Verhalten ist eine Meldung des Arztes oder der Ärztin bei der zuständige Landesärztekammer zu erwägen. Das sollte man natürlich nur tun, wenn man auch eine Option auf eine:n andere:n Ärztin/Arzt hat, weil danach das Verhältnis belastet sein wird.

New research shows that only 10% #Omicron cases are in ppl who have gotten #COVID19 #Booster.

This may be MISINTERPRETED as:

"Only 10% of people w/ #BoosterDose get #OmicronVariant"


#BoosterShots are 90% effective"

Not that simple! READ ON!…

First, this is NOT a critique of the study (currently a pre-print).

Researchers at @MethodistHosp who did this provided a VERY valuable piece of info and are not making any inappropriate claims. Great work!

It's just that it's easy for public/media to misinterpret results!

Paper reports on a total of 1313 #OmicronVariant cases in the Houston, TX area.

See table below:
~49% of cases in those not vaccinated (0 or 1 does)

Of those #Breakthrough cases,

535 cases w/ 2 #vaccine doses
140 cases w/ 3 doses (i.e., booster) Image

1/5 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦: this may feel like a double marathon we didn’t sign up for, but we can draw strength knowing the ground we’ve covered so far to stay on track and work together to get where we need to go.…
2/5 As public health continues vaccination efforts & closely monitors local epidemiology for signs of peaking activity in the weeks ahead, we can all help by staying the course to get through this difficult time sooner. #VaccinesPlus➡️…
3/5 Currently, we still need millions more Canadians to increase their protection with #COVID19Vaccines, including almost 7 million eligible people who need a 1st or 2nd dose of their primary series.

1/7 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦: Nationally, the average daily case count has increased by more than 50% compared to the previous 7-day average, with >42,000 cases being reported daily over the past 7 days (data up to Jan 6th).…
2/7 High infection rates that are challenging testing capacity in much of the country lead to an underestimation of the true case numbers, but we continue to test & sequence at very high levels to track the spread and monitor variant predominance.…
3/7 At the same time, we continue to use multiple other indicators, such as laboratory test positivity and hospitalisation/critical illness trends that are useful for monitoring overall disease activity and severity impacts.

1/4 #COVID19 key concerns 🇨🇦 : we’ve got the winter blues across the country, but this too shall pass! Let’s lighten the blues sooner with layers of protection for you and yours. #FullyVaccinated #BoosterDose #VaccinesPlus
2/4 Winterizing your #covidwise includes choosing a mask that is well-constructed and can be adjusted to fit your face snugly to filter potentially contaminated air in/out of your mask. 🚫 #MaskGaps
3/4 Improving indoor ventilation also helps by reducing levels of infectious particles in the air, which is particularly important for times when we’re in closed spaces with others outside our immediate household. #AVOID3Cs #GoodVentilation

#Pakistan case numbers ⬆️by 50%.The ripples of 5th🌊 have begun. We detected #Omicron in samples as early as Dec 6. It has a doubling time of 1.5-3 days, much faster than Delta. How do we brace ourselves? Recipe is the same: #mask #SocialDistancing #boosterdose as eligible 1/
Who should get the vaccine? Anyone who is 12 and above. Who should get a booster? 1:Immunocompromised (all ELIGIBLE age groups)
2: Those 50 years & above
3: Healthcare workers
*Booster when last vaccine give at least more 6 months ago 2/
Recovering from Covid? Wait for 28 days before getting a booster.
All vaccines being offered as boosters: Sinopharm, Sinovac, Pfizer or Moderna 3/

@narendramodi PM @narendramodi's address to the nation.

Infections are rising across several nations due to a new variant of COVID, #Omicron. In India, there have been a few cases as well. I call upon all of you to not panic.

Use masks & sanitize yourself regularly.…
@narendramodi Today, the nation has
18 lakh isolation beds,
5 lakh oxygen supported beds,
1.4 lakh ICU beds &
90,000 special beds for kids

Today, we have over 3,000 functional PSA Oxygen plants & 4 lakh cylinders have been provided to all states.

#Omicron #OmicronVariant
@narendramodi We are set to begin vaccination for kids aged between 15-18 from 3rd January, 2022. This will not just strengthen our fight against COVID, but also help our students in schools and colleges health-wise.

Short thread on this table which is shared widely and leads to the (false) conclusion that a heterologous boost with 2xPfizer/1xModerna is superior to a homologous boost with 3xPfizer. Image
1. The moderna booster given in this study was a 100ug dose whereas the approved moderna booster is only a 50ug dose, which would lead to somewhat lower antibody levels. Therefore the difference would be even smaller.
2. Even if the difference between heterologous and homologous booster would hold for the 50ug Moderna dose, the difference is not relevant. Here is why: I assume (and I apologize if this assumption is wrong) that many people look at that table and think if 2xPfizer/1xmoderna

1. #Travel? #Holidays? #COVID19?

During this #COVID I am going to create a rolling thread about key issues and articles of interest, just so as you can see the evolution toward a return to normality in 2022, 2023, 2024 or 2025; according to predictions by #Aviation!
2. #Travel? #Holidays? #COVID19?

Interesting article about #staycations and their price!!

The attitude of some UK h/makers, is I'm afraid, a common feature found in holidays abroad. I've heard many a tale about the Master vs Serf behaviour of some Brits!…

It's not done with us yet:

"...hard to anticipate what the timeline will be for the expected shift of COVID-19 to endemicity..."…
