Update on Biolabs in Ukraine.
Ukraine and other post-Soviet states have become a testing ground for biological weapons not only for Washington DC, but also for its #NATO allies. The RF special operation has led to forming the final report on DTRA activity dated from 2005 to 2016
2. The data contains evaluation of healthcare, veterinary & biosecurity system efficiency prepared by a group of U.S. experts in 2016. Despite the more than 10-year-long period of cooperation in the alleged '...reduction of biological threats...', the experts have stated:...
3. '...There is no legislation on the control of highly dangerous pathogens in the country, there are significant deficiencies in bio-safety... The current state of resources makes it impossible for laboratories to respond effectively to public health emergencies...'

#COVID - epidemic - still raging

#Hepatitis - in children

#Polio - now found in London

Polio spreads from sewage - we are pouring MILLIONS of gallons of untreated sewage into waterways
Look where the UK appears in this chart

Je länger das Jahr fortschreitet, desto deutlicher wird:
Wir haben nicht eine #Coronapandemie sondern zwei.
Die eine #Pandemie ist eine eine akute Erkrankung der Atemwege, des Blutes und des Epithels, die in einem erheblichen Maße - insbesondere bei #vorerkrankten Menschen

#intensivpflichtig wird und in dieser Gruppe häufig tödlich verläuft. Damit einhergehend - aufgrund der unglaublichen Dynamik der Infektionswellen - stellt sich die Herausforderung, die kritische Infrastruktur und die klinische Versorgung aufrecht zu erhalten.

Zur Bewerkstelligung dieser Herausforderung haben wir in den letzten Jahren Erfahrungen mit verschiedenen medizinischen und nichtmedizinischen Interventionen gesammelt.

Why The World and #WHO Choose to Ignore All The Red Flags ⁉️

Dr Tedros Adhanom, Director General of #WHO, committed an 'egregious violation' of WHO core tenants

Dr Tedros;

- Publicly encouraged and supported the recruitment of #ChildSoldiers,


1/6
2/6
- Supported #TPLF's war effort. He used his position to lobby and advocate for TPLF, intentionally misleading and misinforming the International Community,

- Failed to acknowledge the despicable war crimes of #TPLF in #Amhara and #Afar Regions,

3/6
- He was a member of the #TPLF Politburo Standing Committee. A political party known for egregious violation of Human Rights. Please refer to State Department, #CPJ, #Amnesty International, #UN & #HumanRightsWatch Reports on #Ethiopia from 1991-2018,

John Snow's #cholera investigation is one of the founding stories of #epidemiology, and cholera was one of the first infectious disease for which we proved a cause. But over 150 years later cholera still kills over 100,000 people a year. (1/4)
gtfcc.org/about-cholera/
We know what causes cholera. We know how it spreads. Supportive therapy can reduce death rates to almost zero. We have an effective vaccine. We know that adequate water and sanitation virtually eliminates the disease. SO WHY IS ANYONE DYING? (2/4) Image
Its about access. #OralCholeraVaccine supplies are limited (<50 million courses for 100s of millions at risk). Life saving therapies may not be available when outbreaks occur, doctors and patients may not know how best to use them. Infrastructure projects are expensive. (3/4)

Weshalb ist das Besichtigen von Schlachthöfen um 1900 en vogue? Thread z. #Fleisch, #Literatur & dem Central-Vieh- & #Schlachthof in Berlin nach Susanne #SchindlerReinisch: #BerlinCentralViehhof (1996) & bes. dem Text v. #DanielaGuhr. (Bilder ebd., hier: Rinderverkaufshalle) /1 Image
Upton #Sinclair beschreibt 1905/06 in #TheJungle die Zuschauergalerien in den #Schlachthöfen Chicagos. Ab dann gehört d. Besuch dort zum Standardprogramm dt. Gäste. Auch den Berliner Vieh- & Schlachthof kann man besichtigen, 1910 kostenlos & ohne Führer, nur e. punktierten /2
Linie folgend. 1929 widmet ihm Alfred #Döblin in #BerlinAlexanderplatz längere Passagen. Sie zeugen von Faszination, zeichnen das Schlachten aber zugl. als obszön, unmoralisch, was durchaus auch in Reportagen aus Chicago der Fall ist. Der Berliner Central-Vieh- & Schlachthof /3 ImageImage

In April, I joined UN experts in calling on Secretary General @antonioguterres to take action to address the UN's failure to provide justice to #cholera victims in #Haiti. The SG's stunningly cynical reply is now public. My response below. 1/5
The UN appears to be offering Haitian cholera victims little more than platitudes. I am grateful to @antonioguterres for his reply, but dismayed by the lack of response to allegations that victims have not been assisted. 2/5
Rather than respond to our questions, the reply focuses on achievements against cholera. Great, but that's not the issue. The vague references to "intracommunity dialogue" and "community healing" also dodge the central question: what is the UN doing? 3/5

Thread,
-#Yemen has suffered 5 years of war, poverty, cholera and now #COVID19!
-Our country is on the brink of collapse.
-The "death" has become normal!
-Hospitals have refused to take in infected people, because there is a lack of protection equipment.
-Fuel crisis.
-Doctors and nurses can't work without personal protective equipment.
-people are afraid of going to hospitals and they die in their houses.
-People can't bury their loved ones because of the high prices of
burial.
-A lot of #COVID19 cases in Sana'a and double in #Aden!
-No Salaries for 5 years, no electricity, no jobs, no access to health care, no access to clean water, famine, destruction, Cholera, dengue fever, bombardment and now #coronavirus.
-High number of infections and deaths among Doctors, nurses and helpers.

WHO's mission is to
promote health,
keep the 🌍 safe,
serve the vulnerable.

By 2023 we aim for:

1B more people benefiting from #HealthForAll

1B more people better protected from health emergencies

1B more people living with better health & well-being.

#WHOImpact
To achieve 1B more people benefiting from #HealthForAll:
WHO welcomes:
- #UNGA 2019 political declaration on Universal Health Coverage
-@IPUparliament Resolution on UHC
WHO Results Report 2018-2019: bit.ly/2yabnR1

Although access to health services has expanded, the 🌍 is still far short of the 1B target & financial protection has weakened.
SO WHO has created a special programme on primary health care to provide more broad-based support to countries. bit.ly/2yabnR1

Hi everyone,
I'm really excited to lead the #PRChatAfrica discussion tonight. If you also joined the #ACWCommsChat, I hope you still have some energy left for this chat.
Don't forget to use the #PRChatAfrica when you send your comments or questions.
As a quick intro, I am Congolese but I grew up in Belgium. Before working for the #DRC Ministry of Health, I had no background in #health communications. I wasn't even supposed to work there. I was in DRC on holiday just for a couple weeks and I ended up living there for 2 years.
During my time at the MoH, I found myself having to deal with a major #cholera outbreak across the country, even in Kinshasa. A month after it ended, we had the country's 9th #Ebola outbreak. And literally a week after the end of that outbreak, we had the 10th Ebola outbreak.

Cholera cases decreased 📉 globally by 60% in 2018: an encouraging trend in #cholera prevention and control in the world’s major cholera hotspots, including Haiti, Somalia and DRC bit.ly/35Nzr89
@WHOAFRO @WHOWPRO @WHOSEARO @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @pahowho The global decrease in #cholera cases appears to be linked to large-scale vaccination campaigns and countries beginning to adopt the strategy in the Global Roadmap to 2030 in their national cholera action plans bit.ly/35Nzr89
