Short🧵Why I think #Covid can cause existential consequences for Human Race ?? For any species to continue it has to procreate,that depends on fertility of both men & women.We started getting edgy couple of months ago.Here's the original ctd
Ctd2) Then we found more correlation, the infection was really causing changes in hormone levels ctd)
Ctd3) We know that the number of ova in a woman is fixed at birth.The body doesn't produce more ova.Only a fixed number mature rest die off , maturation needs hormones & lots of other factors. If either hormones or reservoir is reduced #risk ctd)

I hate this—Congressional stock trading scandals, from suspiciously trades at start of #COVID pandemic to members of Congress failing to comply with disclosure requirements, have prompted calls for reform. But they are “fake” reforms—thanks @waltshaub

2) “To say the bill is weak, however, would be an understatement. The bill is dangerous. It would undermine what little ethics we have in our federal government.” ~@waltshaub
3) it “bill would replace the government’s strict blind trust requirements with a regime that would permit fake blind trusts, like one Trump invented. Backing a bill that would allow fake blind trusts—Trump’s greatest scam—should shock us into paying attention.” @waltshaub

♟️ Un champion à l'intégrité reconnue, un "coupable parfait" de par son passif de tricheur et son attitude, des théories "délirantes"... Le tout, alors que "les échecs ont gagné en popularité".

Récit d'un scandale qui fait vaciller le roi des jeux ⤵️

1/9 leparisien.fr/sports/les-ech…
Tout est parti d'un tweet énigmatique du champion du monde @MagnusCarlsen, accusant son adversaire @HansMokeNiemann de triche mais sans apporter de preuve. Il a ensuite détaillé ses accusations dans un message.

2/9
Toutes les personnes interrogées s'accordent à dire que la triche est possible, même au plus haut niveau.

"C’est comme le dopage dans tous les autres sports : les tricheurs ne sont qu’une infime minorité, mais ils sont de plus en plus sophistiqués." (patron de la @ffechecs)

Breve 🧵 Mi compañero de lote pediatra siempre me llamó un poco preocupado por los efectos #Covid en los niños. Normalmente contesta mi teléfono en el primer timbre, PERO hoy no lo hizo. Llamó un par de horas más tarde para disculparse por la incapacidad - Dijo y cito
Ctd1) "lo que sigue pasando: tengo niños con infección y fiebre cada 15 o 20 días. Nunca he visto esto en mi vida. No responden a los antibióticos. Todas las investigaciones básicas están bien. Parece una infección viral. Niños ponte bien PERO los padres están muy tensos ctd)
Ctd) "La fiebre constante/repetida significa que los niños no pueden ir a la escuela. Las madres tienen que faltar al trabajo. Todos los niños van a la escuela. Empecé a decirles a los padres que ya no sé lo que está pasando. Covid está causando algo en la inmunidad de los niños.

1) With #COVID hospitalizations starting to rebound this week in Quebec, it’s worth checking out what is happening internationally. The latest hospital turmoil in the United Kingdom may serve as a stark warning of what may be coming our way in Canada. Image
2) First, though, it’s worth noting that internationally, the #pandemic – while not over – is not causing anywhere near the number of deaths as it did in previous waves, as the chart below by Our World in Data shows. But #Omicron is wreaking havoc with some hospital systems. Image
3) The Guardian newspaper in England is reporting that #COVID hospitalizations have rebounded by 37 per cent in a week. At least eight hospitals cancelled operations or asked people not to show up to the emergency rooms in an echo of what sadly happened in Quebec last winter. Image

Short 🧵 My pediatrician batchmate always called me a little over concerned about #Covid effects in kids .Normally he picks up my phone in 1st ring BUT today he didn't. He called a couple of hours later apologizing for the inability - He said & I quote "I really dont know - Ctd)
Ctd1) " what is happening anymore - I am getting kids having infection & fever every 15- 20 days. Havent seen this ever in my life. They don't respond to antibiotics.All basic investigations okay. Looks like a viral infection.Kids get okay BUT the parents are very tensed ctd)
Ctd) " Constant / repeated fever means kids can't to school .Mothers have to miss work. All in school going kids. I have started telling parents I don't know what is happening anymore. I think you were right in saying that Covid is causing something to the immunity of kids. Ctd

The many stages of #Covid

You: I had Covid, now I feel like death. Something is very wrong. I tried to ignore it but now I can’t work, eat, breathe, sit, stand, walk, speak or think. Technically, I’m alive but you can’t call this living. I need medical care.
Medicine: You look fine. All your tests are normal. You look anxious though. Anxiety is a powerful thing. You’d be surprised what it can do to your body.

Take this antidepressant.
You: Maybe you’re not doing the right tests?

Medicine: Maybe you’re a hypochondriac?

1) Breaking: ICU stays due to #COVID ticked up by 8 to 42 in Quebec as the province posted its third consecutive day of rebounding hospitalizations in the #pandemic. #8thwave Image
2) In total, 1,671 people are being hospitalized for #COVID. That's up from 1,520 on Sept. 20. Three more health workers went on sick leave due to COVID, raising the tally to 3,864. In the past 10 days, nearly 630 more health workers have gone absent during the #pandemic.
3) The Health Ministry declared 14 more #COVID fatalities on Friday afternoon, raising the death toll to 16,784. On the same date in 2021, the government posted two such deaths. On Sept. 30 last year, there were 311 #pandemic hospitalizations.

🌡️ Très net impact apparent de la #canicule sur le nombre de décès cet été :

• 155 138 décès du 1er juin au 31 août, soit :
• +8 486 par rapport à la même période 2021
• +13 446 par rapport à 2019

Le pic le plus haut correspond à la vague de chaleur de mi-juillet.

1/5
Un bilan détaillé de la mortalité cet été, en prenant en compte les épisodes de canicule ET la 8e vague de #Covid, sera publié en octobre par @SantePubliqueFr.

Il y a eu fin juillet un pic à 100 décès quotidiens de patients #Covid19, sur près de 2 000 décès toutes causes.

4/5
Comme nous l'avons déjà expliqué dans @le_Parisien, la corrélation entre le nombre de décès et la température moyenne permet de fortement soupçonner un lourd impact des vagues de chaleur sur la mortalité. 👇

🧵California's COVID sick pay policy is now extended through Dec 31.

It *was* set to expire Sept 30, but was just signed into law by Gov. Newsom.

This means that many folks can still claim up to 80 hours of COVID-related paid leave for another 3 months.kqed.org/news/11904834/…
Q. Who can claim this extended #COVID sick pay?

A. People who work in California for an employer of 26 or more people.

(As @CalMatters reported earlier in 2022, this excludes roughly 1 in 4 California workers. It also leaves out independent contractors.)kqed.org/news/11904834/…
Q. Can I claim this sick pay through Dec. 31 if I get COVID?

A. Yes, you can claim if COVID hits your household, and either YOU get sick or a family member has COVID & you need to care for them.

An employer may require you to provide test(s) as proof 👇kqed.org/news/11904834/…

1) BREAKING: Quebec's public health officer, Dr. Luc Boileau, says it's "too early" to confirm that the province has entered an 8th wave in the #pandemic. But he acknowledged that #COVID19 hospitalizations and SARS-CoV-2 concentrations in wastewater are going back up.
2) Quebec reported an increase of 44 #COVID hospitalizations on Thursday, raising the total to 1,663. This comes after an increase of 53 hospitalizations the day before.
3) The number of health-care workers absent due to #COVID19 is going back up, too, unfortunately. The number absent is 3,861, up from 3,235 on Sept. 20.

Simpatici farabutti.

“La vaccinazione contro il #COVID19 può cambiare il ciclo nelle donne. Nel 2021 le donne hanno riferito sui social uno strano effetto collaterale: i cambiamenti nel ciclo”. Secondo un nuovo studio, i loro timori “erano validi”.

agi.it/scienza/news/2…
Lo studio su quasi 20.000 persone in tutto il mondo, scrive il Washington Post, “mostra che il vaccino contro il #COVID19 può cambiare i tempi del ciclo” e “14.936 donne vaccinate hanno sperimentato, in media, circa un giorno di ritardo rispetto alle 4.686 non vaccinate”.
E “le persone che hanno ricevuto due dosi entro un ciclo mestruale hanno subito interruzioni più lunghe”. In questo gruppo, l'aumento medio di durata del ciclo è stato di quattro giorni e il 13% ha subito un ritardo di otto giorni o più, rispetto al 5% nel gruppo di controllo.

👶 Le nombre de naissances est reparti à la hausse l'an dernier (742 100 bébés nés en 2021), après 6 années de baisse.

La chute début 2021, liée au premier confinement du printemps 2020, a été plus que compensée par la suite, surtout en fin d'année.

1/5

leparisien.fr/societe/natali… Image
Dans le détail par tranches d'âge, la chute des naissances neuf mois après le premier confinement est la plus forte chez les femmes les plus jeunes :

• -24,1 % pour celles de moins de 20 ans
• -16,7 % pour les 20-24 ans
• -10,6 % pour les 30-34 ans

etc.

2/5 ImageImageImageImage
Cet impact variable peut notamment s'expliquer par "le marché du travail à l’issue de la crise ou encore l’éloignement des couples non cohabitants, notamment chez les plus jeunes", avance l'@InseeFr.

1) During the last two provincial leaders’ debates, Premier François Legault asserted Quebec has managed the #pandemic better than the rest of Canada and the United States, pointing to an esoteric concept known as excess mortality. In this thread, I fact-check Legault’s claims.
2) First, though, it should be pointed out that soon after I wrote a Twitter thread comparing Quebec’s seven-day #COVID mortality rate per million population with other countries last January, the public health institute (INSPQ) stopped publishing such charts. Why did it do so?
3) The reasons offered then were not because Quebec’s #COVID mortality rate just happened to be the highest of all major international jurisdictions. No, the rationale was that each jurisdiction compiles its COVID deaths differently and therefore such comparisons were unreliable.
