1) I lived under the regime of the #SEC for 25 years as an investment banker. So what I am about to tell you is nothing new to me. Every member of the securities industry can corroborate and every securities lawyer with integrity can back these statements.
2) DISCLAIMER: Before you proceed, you must know that I am not a #securities lawyer, and this is not legal advice. In addition, these are only my own opinions.
3) The SEC designs rules that makes them "operatively contagious", like a virus. If Im sick and I touch you, you get sick. To understand what this means one first MUST understand the term #Gatekeeper as it is has been commonly used in the regulatory community.

How long are you #contagious when you have #covid19?
Likely 5-10 days (based on Ag tests and viral culture assays, two proxies for contagiousness)

😷Mask up until Day 10 or 2 neg ag tests to protect others. #testtoexit

Latest studies ⬇️ (1/3)

The latest #antigentest study lends more support to what we already knew from @michaelmina_lab and others: Day 5 is not the end of #covid contagiousness!

By @carina_marquez @DHavlir at @ucsf @czbiohub
Thx for flagging this study @bhrenton

Viral culture is a great proxy for contagiousness. The latest study of #omicron found even higher % positivity after Day 5 than others.

% positive viral culture by day:
Day 5: 83% (44/53)
Day 7: 52% (26/50)
Day 10: 14% (7/52)
Day 14: 8% (4/50)

1/ Q. How does #ContactTracing work again? How is that component of #TestTraceIsolate going so far?

A. Contact tracing is a tried and true #publichealth measure that’s been successfully used to contain other infectious diseases (see graphic). But there are challenges. Image
2/ When adapting this strategy for #COVID19:

First, because people are #contagious even BEFORE developing symptoms, tracing (identifying and notifying contacts) needs to happen quickly. But tracing takes time.
3/ There is also currently no #treatment to offer to individuals who test positive, so there is less personal incentive to cooperate. Instead, contacts are asked to #quarantine, not for their own benefit, but to reduce exposure to others.

🦠What are the chances that @realDonaldTrump would falsify a #coronavirus test⁉️Ask Dr Harold Bornstein ...🙄#coronavirus #COVIDー19
🦠This is ironic... Trump’s love of white nationalist leaders may actually benefit us... Maybe all that money that Trump makes having meetings at Mar A Lago will end up being a really good thing for America... #coronavirus #outbreak #contagious #CoronaVirusUpdates
