NEW: #Brazil asks for help as deaths from #COVID19 are hitting record daily numbers.

To get a better understanding of the impacts of the #CoronavirusPandemic from the ground, we gathered four perspectives from across the country.…
In small towns across #Brazil like Piúma, Espirito Santo, the health system is insufficient to deal with the surging cases of #coronavirus.

Catarina Mais, a local health professional, spoke to Unicorn Riot saying: “Piúma is asking for help ... Brazil is asking for help.”
Catarina Mais said the #UKvariant, the most aggressive #COVID19 variant, had just entered Piúma, likely from “a tourist from another state or county.” This could be devastating for Piúma, as the population doesn’t have enough hospital beds available nor an ambulance.

In light of the situation in #Brazil and reports of more severe #COVID19 in young persons, we should consider whether antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE) is playing a role.

It has important implications for the rest of the world. 1/🧵…
In ADE, an initial mild infection can be followed by more severe illness upon reinfection. Non-neutralizing antibodies are thought to play a role. The potential mechanism for #SARSCoV2 is likely different from #dengue. See "b" ⬇️

Antibody-independent mechanisms also exist. 2/ ImageImage
On an individual level, ADE (or ERD as above) may be clinically indistinguishable from non-ADE severe disease. A history of #COVID19 or baseline Ab+ could raise suspicion.

At a population level, ADE may only present as an increase in rates of hospitalization and death. 3/

WOW—first bilateral pandemic BUBBLE between 2 countries!

New Zealand 🇳🇿 & Australia 🇦🇺 can form a quarantine-free bubble because they both adopted a #ZeroCovid strategy.

Don’t say “but but—islands”. Vietnam 🇻🇳 is not an island, yet has zero #COVID19 too. Leadership matters! 🧵
3) If you elect competent leaders who doesn’t try to rip a country apart (cough, Brexit, cough), but instead led with compassion... you can rock zero Covid too.

With a surprise cabinet reshuffle, the Brazilian president wants to increase control over Congress and the security forces in the face of growing resistance in politics, society and the economy.…
But the price his allies charge for their support is rising.

First it was the foreign minister, then the defense minister, and finally there were a total of six cabinet members who President Jair Bolsonaro replaced in one fell swoop on Monday.

BREAKING—Mexico's 🇲🇽 government is acknowledging in a quietly released report that the country's true death toll from the coronavirus pandemic now stands above 321,000. That is almost 60% more than Mexico’s official test-confirmed number #COVID19 cases.🧵…
2) Mexico does little testing, and because hospitals were overwhelmed, many Mexicans died at home without getting a test. The only way to get a clear picture is to review “excess deaths” and review death certificates.
3) “The higher toll would rival that of Brazil, which currently has the world’s second-highest number of deaths after the United States. But Mexico’s population of 126 million is far smaller than either of those countries.”

➡️Le Brésil a t'il actuellement autant de décès #Covid que la France ?

C'est un argument qui ressort beaucoup en ce moment, les deux pays auraient "proportionnellement autant de décès #Covid_19 par jours" !

Eh bien, je vais vous montrer que c'est faux.
Déjà, prenons les chiffres totaux au 26/03/2021

🇫🇷La France : 94 275 décès pour 67 063 703 habitants
Soit 1 405 décès par Millions d'habitants

🇧🇷Le Brésil : 307 326 décès pour 212 777 038 habitants
Soit 1 444 décès par Millions d'habitants

C'est proche, oui MAIS ⤵️
➡️Quand on prend les chiffres moyens actuels, donc la moyenne de décès liés au #coronavirus lissée sur 7 jours, il se passe quelque chose d'étrange, et d'effrayant notamment pour le Brésil.

You hear Brazil is getting hit hard by a Covid-19 variant? Not in Maxaranguape, in northeast Brazil that adopted #Ivermectin. Down to zero deaths, zero cases. The city bought 15,000 Ivermectin tablets. #covid #winning
👆👆Next time someone tells you we need another journal publication for #ivermectin or randomized blind study, keep pointing to this 🔥REAL. LIVING. PROOF🔥

Don't dishonor a patient in a trial who could LIVE by taking Ivermectin instead of a placebo.

The P.1 variant has already been detected in at least 26 countries, with local transmission currently confirmed in 4 of them. Recently, New York announced a Brooklyn resident patient with no travel history to Brazil who is infected with the P.1 variant.……
Three recent preprints, yet to be peer-reviewed, have found that the SARS-CoV-2 variant P.1 is about twice more transmissible than the resident, wild type virus, in Manaus, Brazil.
These studies arrived at very similar results employing different methodologies, converging in their assessment of a very high transmission rate for the new variant.

I’m confused. Maybe someone in the media can explain naming conventions to me. Health Care workers, administration officials, and the media are referring to differing variants of the CoronaVirus 🦠 as the “UK” variant, the “South African” variant, or even the “Brazilian” 1/2
Variant....but it’s racist to call the virus by its original name (and place of origin) the Wuhan Virus? Someone please send the decision tree for me to follow along. Hat tip to @JustinPulitzer . #China #SouthAfrica #Brazil #UK #Wuhan

😰 Mais um dia difícil na vida de divulgadora científica! Ter que divulgar notícia que batemos novamente o recorde que ninguém gostaria 😭🖤
🏴 Hoje chegamos a triste e lamentável marca de 2.841 óbitos em 24 horas no país... São quase 3k!🇧🇷🖤 Image
Números de óbitos do RS de sexta pra cá - dados de @schrarstzhaupt:

Sex - 276
Sab - 331
Dom - 72
Seg - 152
HOJE - 502

Batemos a marca de 282.127 vidas perdidas no BR desde a primeira morte pela COVID-19, uma doença totalmente evitável 😥
Lidar com tudo isso não tem sido nada fácil.
Me coloco facilmente no lugar dessas famílias enlutadas, das pessoas que perderam alguém querido neste 1 ano de pandemia descontrolada, desgovernada, que não ouve a ciência e os seus apelos...

Sunday's #Coronavirus megathread will, as always, be updated throughout the day with news, data and analysis.

Few paid attention while we warned of rising #Covid19 cases in the Balkans then central Europe. Now everyone's concerned as big nations suffer.

Come inside folks!
And I'll start with Europe's biggest nation (in population), #Germany

A further 27% rise in #Covid19 cases confirmed overnight with 10,572 new infections for Saturday vs 8,311 the week before.
#Brazil's been the focus of much attention of late as deaths soar.

The number of people who were reported to have died of #Covid19 yesterday actually dipped, but only because it's the weekend. In fact 1,940 deaths is 30% higher than last Saturday's 1,498

New cases: 70,934 (+5%)

According to the Ministry of Science and Technology's National Laboratory for Scientific Computing (LNCC), a potential new version of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has been found in several regions of Brazil.
Brazilian scientists have discovered a new variant as the country's healthcare system is nearing collapse due to a spike in P.1 strain cases that appeared in northern Brazil's Amazon state in November 2020.
The analysis carried out in 39 municipalities of five Brazilian States 'led to the discovery of a potential new variant of SARS-CoV-2 originating from variant B.1.1.33 which had circulated in Brazil,' said the laboratory in a statement on Friday.

The daily #Coronavirus thread is underway.

If Friday turned out to be fearful, we can only hope it's not a shocking Saturday.

More and more countries and regions heading back into lockdown as #Covid19 spreads quicker then the vaccines.

2,152 more deaths takes total fatalities over 275k
Almost a record for #Norway too tonight.

905 new #Covid19 infections diagnosed in the last 24 hours, just 25 below the national record. Today's total is 31% up on the previous week.

Over 300 more Covid patients have been admitted to hospital in the last 2 days alone.

Finally got to analyze & put my thoughts together on the recent #posaconazole vs. #voriconazole phase 3 trial for invasive #aspergillosis published in .@TheLancet a few weeks ago.
Best is to put the major trials of the 3 #VIP triazoles done over the last 20 years in perspective!
Here is the table with key points of trial design of the #TresAmigos trials, interesting features:

#Vori-Ampho was open label, but with blinded adjudication, including to adverse effects.

All where non-inferiority trials, #vori-amphoB had a clause for claiming superiority.

Human Activities Obliterated Two-Third of #Earth’s Tropical Rainforests Between 2002-2019: Report…

(📸: IANS)
Human activities have contributed to the massive destruction of nearly two-thirds of the world’s original #TropicalRainforests in the last two decades, a new study has found.

The analysis has revealed logging and land conversion for various agricultural practices as the two primary factors behind the wipeout of these forests, which serve as the largest reservoirs of carbon and effectively mitigate #GlobalWarming.

After an important shipment of raw materials arrived, the Fundação Oswaldo Cruz (Fiocruz) research facility in Rio de Janeiro started large-scale production of the Astrazeneca vaccine.
According to this, the vaccine produced with drugs imported from China passed the tests and 3.8 million doses could be handed over to the Ministry of Health in Brasília by the end of March.
The import of raw materials to make 12.2 million doses of the Astrazeneca vaccine had raised new hopes for a vaccination breakthrough amid the rapid spread of the coronavirus in Brazil. With Fiocruz, Brazil has a vaccine factory that is considered the largest in Latin America.

These studies arrived at very similar results employing different methodologies, converging in their assessment of a very high transmission rate for the new variant.
The P.1 variant was initially detected in the state of Amazonas, Brazil, and its presence is strongly associated with the rapid increase in hospitalization rates in Manaus, followed by a collapse in the city's health care system shortly thereafter.
