'Lord Tim Bell began his career in 1959 at Colman Prentis and Varley & after stints with Hobson Bates and Geers Gross, he helped form Saatchi & Saatchi in 1970

He later co-founded Bell Pottinger which became CHIME Comms when it was floated on the London stock exchange'

People are being reinfected immediately again after #Omicron infection!!

A new study shows that immunity based upon “mild" Omicron infection is weak for Omicron reinfection, and limited for cross immunity to Delta infection. 1/
Overall, immunity from Omicron infection is much lower than the immunity from Delta infection, correlated with the severity of infection. 2/
What does that mean?
Unless you get a severe infection with all of its consequences you also don’t get immunity from having another infection.
And recall even immunity from severe infection wanes rapidly in a few months. 3/

🇬🇧 Huge successes and major setbacks after the vote on the #DigitalServicesAct. We won backing for a right to use services anonymously, but there will be mandatory 📱number registration for adult content creators.

Find out who supported and who opposed your digital rights 🧵⬇
Personal information of millions of EU citizens is hacked and leaked again and again, fuelling cybercrime.

We were now able to secure a majority for a right to use and pay for digital services anonymously in the #DigitalServicesAct!
#Breakthrough
Internet corporations use unreliable #uploadfilters against supposedly illegal content - with much collateral damage. The majority won‘t even limit automated censorship to content that is manifestly illegal irrespective of its context.

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"

OR

#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!
3/

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)
~51% are #BREAKTHROUGHS.

Of those #Breakthrough cases,

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

What do we know about the B.1.1.529 variant of SARS-CoV-2 with a very large number of mutations
An updated thread on emerging evidence. Image
B.1.1.529 is a newly designated variant of SARS-CoV-2 github.com/cov-lineages/p…
This would not have been possible without the exemplary work of researchers in Africa who have sequenced and deposited the genomes in public domain which forms the basis of this variant designation.
The lineage (variant) is characterized by 32 conserved spike mutations A67V Δ69-70 T95I G142D/Δ143-145, Δ211/L212I ins214EPE G339D S371L S373P S375F K417N N440K G446S S477N T478K E484A Q493K G496S Q498R N501Y Y505H T547K D614G H655Y N679K P681H N764K D796Y N856K Q954H N969K L981F

@sajidjavid uses the word HAVE not DO ..... the devil is in the detail and he knows that the vaccine no longer works for the #DeltaVariant or any of its offspring !
1. The novel coronavirus, or SARS-CoV-2, has a complex structure, and different parts of the virus trigger the immune system to produce different antibodies to neutralise the virus.
2. If an unvaccinated person catches the virus, they will produce antibodies that prevent the virus from entering human cells. They may also generate antibodies that do not have much impact.

I'm excited to share with you our recent @biorxivpreprint where we demonstrate that @vaxart mucosal Ad5 #SARSCoV2 vaccines not only protected against disease but also reduced transmission after post-#vaccination #SARSCoV2 infection in a hamster model. biorxiv.org/content/10.110… A🧵/
If you follow me, you are well aware of my obsession w/ #mucosalimmunity.😂Protection generated at mucosal surfaces is at the crux of one of the biggest questions we need to answer during this unique phase of the #pandemic - How do we decrease #SARSCoV2 #transmission to others.
Considering most of the world is unimmunized (including most kids <12), the possibility that a vaccinated individual with a post-vaccination infection (aka #breakthrough) can spread #SARSCoV2 is a public health risk. We need #transmissionblocking strategies.

I'm just getting past a #BREAKTHROUGH bout with #COVID19.
I was vaccinated with the J&J vaccine on 4/10/2021.
I have no idea how I got it. I just started with three symptoms
on Saturday, 9/4/2021, I started smelling a 'residual' odor and felt slightly nauseous, like an early flu. I stopped eating and limited my drinking to water and gatorade.
this persisted for three days, until I told a wonderful friend, who started bringing me care packages, including the only solid food that I ate for two weeks - bananas. It seemed to be the only food without an aftertaste.

Here' my "n=1 / anecdote / was clearly bored" symptom diary of my #breakthrough #COVID19 case. And a short thread on things I found interesting about the disease process. (1/n)
My symptoms were not unique or special. They generally tracked with other reports on breakthrough delta infection in Isreal, Singapore, and US. Link to CDC report on Provincetown outbreak below as an example. (2/n)

cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/7…
Let's talk about rhinorrhea, or runny nose - worst I've ever had. Was almost comical how many paper tissues I burned through. Makes sense, as nasal epithelial cells and are prime targets of SARS-CoV-2--> damage+inflammation. (3/n)

Betrachtet man die #Hospitalisierungsinzidenz-en für alle Altersgruppen über den Gesamtzeitraum, sieht erstmal alles #Tutti aus, weniger als KW44/20 bis 23/21.
Aber zu den Werten gehörten auch 90.000 Tote, das wollen wir ja auch nicht wiederholen.
Wie ist der Trend?

Betrachtet man letzte 2 Monate, steigt nicht nur #Hospitalisierung bei #Kinderdurchseuchung, sondern auch bei 80+ sehr deutlich,
ebenfalls 60-79Jahre steigend, ähnliche Höhe wie #Hospitalisierungsinzidenz der 0-4Jährigen.
War das zu erwarten?➡️

#GetVaccinated vs. #COVID. Vaccines stave off hospitalization, death and even worse for some people, sexual performance. Let's discuss some of the math, pros and cons, and adverse effects and that sexual performance thing. THREAD: texastribune.org/2021/07/21/cor…
2/ Most who are dying or are being hospitalized are unvaccinated. The vaccines don't give 100% immunity, but they are free, easy, painless and provide good protection. They also greatly decrease the impact of COVID if you do get it.
apnews.com/article/corona…
3/ COVID vaccines don't magnetize you and are too small to insert a tracker. Regardless, the government can already track you through your phone, computer, email, credit cards, social media, etc., etc., etc. Fully vaccinated folks are now <1% of deaths. cnet.com/health/99-of-c…

#Breakthrough #infections #CDC #Walensky

(1/n) Under Walensky the CDC stopped tracking breakthrough infections back in May if they didn't require hospitalization. It helps keep down the numbers since hospitalization is rare among the fully vaccinated.

newsweek.com/why-did-cdc-st…
(2/n) Keeping numbers low this way may have seemed reasonable at the time since they wanted people to get vaccinated and since infection with Alphav rarely resulted in infectious fully vaccinated individuals.

cnn.com/2021/08/05/hea…
(3/n) However, this means that when the effectiveness of vaccines is measured in terms of the prevention of severe COVID it misses a great deal of infections among the fully vaccinated, as was belatedly learned by a John Hopkins epidemiologist...

#Moderna says its vaccine shows durable 93% efficacy through 6 months.

Final analysis (median follow-up 5.3 mo):

-Against COVID19: 93.2%
-Against severe COVID19: 98.2%
-Against death: 100%

(Note: All data prior delta) 1/
Further break down of #Moderna efficacy by 2-month segments post 2nd dose; at month 4+, efficacy is 92.4%

#Pfizer vax (by months 4-6) efficacy is 84% - though against severe disease maintains 97%. 2/
Yet it expects antibody levels will start to wane, and with #delta there will be an increase in #breakthrough infections in fully vaccinated; it sees need for #boosters 3/

SPEAKING THE UNSPEAKABLE

I despair of being free of the coronavirus.

Not because we lack the tech, but because we lack the will.

Things which make no sense to me, things which seem cruel or outright monstrous and I am forced to ask: why?

Welcome to #SpeakingTheUnspeakable.
• The #pandemic hasn't ended.

#Governments, due to corporate pressures, are forcing people back to work.

• You may be #vaccinated, but you are NOT safe.

• The #coronavirus will last longer, cost more & kill millions more people worldwide.
@FoxNews's #disinformation efforts have proven to be more effective at misleading people than our government has been at leading them.

• Unchecked #misinformation and #socialmedia have been integral to developing the failed rhetoric on the vaccination effort.

1/ Transplant patients have significantly reduced antibody responses to #COVID vaccination. But does that matter? This report shows that it does. SOT recipients have a 82-fold higher risk of #breakthrough infection compared to immunocompetent hosts.

journals.lww.com/transplantjour…
2/ Even more important, serious consequences of #breakthrough infection are even more common in SOT receipts. They have a 485-fold higher risk of breakthrough infections that lead to hospitalization or death.
3/ Reporting the results as cases per million vaccinated puts this into perspective. For example, the CDC reported that a little more than 1 in 1 million normal hosts (immunocompetent ppl) will die from COVID following vaccination. For transom at recipients, that number is 664. Image

The most important finding of the study was that there were no deaths in case of COVID infection after vaccination. Many other studies of breakthrough infections have also noted no deaths post-vaccination. @docanoopmisra

Are these vaccines really able to end this pandemic? It's counterintuitive, but it's possible that they actually might be making it worse - by imposing evolutionary pressure in infected vaccinees that selects for more infectious & ultimately resistant variants of the virus. Image
"Some countries with the world’s highest vaccination rates are also battling devastating surges of Covid-19 and the highest death tolls, a worrying trend ... "

"U.K. hospitalization numbers have ticked up and case numbers have risen 20% in the past week—though from a low base—as the variant takes hold in parts of the country, largely among younger people who haven’t yet received two vaccine doses."

Entscheidung, die wir für unsere Kinder treffen müssen ist nicht #impfung oder keine Impfung, sondern Immunität durch Impfung oder durch Infektion mit #SARSCoV2 und allen damit möglichen Folgen wie #COVID19 (sehr selten) und #LongCovid (eher nicht ganz so selten).

#STIKO agiert offensichtlich immer noch völlig losgelöst von Herausforderungen dieser #Pandemie. Als ob wir unendlich Zeit hätten auf alle Daten zu warten und dann zu entscheiden. Schön wär's, aber manchmal ist "Nicht handeln das Schlimmste" (Gruß an @rezomusik)

Würden wir endlich #NoCovid machen, hätten wir diese ganzen Probleme nicht, wir hätten Zeit alles zu analysieren und dann zu entscheiden.

Aber #Politik hat sich dagegen entschieden. Dies bedeutet aller Wahrscheinlichkeit nach, dass #Corona spätestens im Herbst zurück kommt.

The WHO declared a coronavirus variant first identified in India, B.1.617, as a “variant of concern,” the agency’s fourth such designation wsj.com/articles/coron…
One can understand the gravity of this announcement: The Indian variant, #B1717 is now clubbed with UK #B117, SA #B1351 & Brazil’s #P1
I think this data is saying "Take B.1.617 very seriously and surge test, contact trace, support isolation of cases & contacts, ring vaccinate - NOW" @chrischirp Look, experts from UK are sounding alert on a variant originated from here! And what was our response?
