So let's get this right... @statnews elevates someone who would talk the US (as they have other countries) out of paying for a life-saving drug like Trikafta instead of recognizing the courage and intellect of someone like Gunnar Esiason @G17Esiason...
...who has #CF, considers himself fortunate to be able to get Trikafta in US thanks to insurance that hasn't yet totally succumbed to bad math, & advocates for the value of the lives of patients elsewhere, urging other countries not to fall for bad math.…
Should the staff at STAT recognize that they, like all of us, are or will someday be patients, they might not honor math that undervalues their lives and lives of their readers.

Work-home hygiene separation for healthcare professionals 🩺🦠💊! Our top tops for #COVID19

This has been our routine for many years (to protect our DD with #CF) but we’ve ramped things up a bit now due to #COVID. Things we do because we once brought home multi drug resistant..
pseudomonas, which scared us all. We do everything possible to reduce risk of hospital germs at home. I may sound quite mad or sane, I have no idea. OCD even. But here we go!
If we have not showered at work, we come in, yell hi to the kids & run up for a shower🚿. Clean change of clothes (you can wear those to work next day). Hugs come after. It’s fine.

Here's a very simple idea and thread for a play on #Coronvirus and an oil price war: the nitrogen complex - because as well as Corona, China and Iran are also major exporters of Urea.

China was the marginal producer. Here's what #CF CF Industries said on their last call on China Image
Here's what OCI said regarding China and Iran Image
Here is what the price of Urea has done during corona. Profercy note China is absent from the export market. Image

Lets continue this discussion. #Qanon has mentioned #USSS #McCain the #McCainFound #CF how they relate etc. We recently learned USSS is connected to #NCMEC. Remember the “cook the books atty” in Godfather that handled all their "problems" & offered solutions??
