There have been 321 new notifications of patients admitted to ICU with confirmed #COVID__19 . (9347 in total) This is largely static compared to last week, but still around 40% of 2 years’ worth of viral pneumonia admissions in ‘normal’ times

The distribution according to critical care network remains unchanged with London and the SE showing the greatest number of admissions. The new admissions this week appear to be concentrated in the London – South ODN

Ayer dije que hablaría de 💸
Está feo con la #pandemia #COVID19 hablar de #sueldos?
Sí.
Una dieta de 1900 € libre de impuestos de un diputado son 5 guardias de 24h?
También.
Este mes much@s sanitari@s hemos cobrado menos?
Bingo.
El #hilo viene con curvas?
Poneos el cinturón👇
Antes de empezar y que aparezcan los de siempre con: Bastante cobráis. Yo cobro menos. Vete al extranjero. Etc. Etc.
DISCLAIMER:

Si algo se ha oído en el hospital durante toda esta crisis ha sido: Por lo menos tenemos trabajo. No quiero pensar en toda la gente que lo ha perdido.

Esa frase, la he dicho yo, y tod@s los compañeros. Varias veces al día.

#leyendo Ninguno de los eventos de contagio de #COVID__19 en Japón ha ocurrido en su transporte público, a pesar de su legendaria densidad de pasajeros. La mayoría son trazables a gimnasios, bares y conciertos. sciencemag.org/news/2020/05/j… #via @danielegrasso @Marta_Serrano
Esto es consistente con la hipótesis de que el contagio del coronavirus requiere compartir aire con gotículas infectadas con el virus de forma prolongada.
Esto ocurriría más donde
a) hay gran densidad de personas,
b) la estancia es larga,
c) se dan conversaciones entre grupos y
d) hay muchas vocalizaciones o respiración forzada.

El transporte público solo cumple la primera de las cuatro condiciones.

En la emisión de hoy, la dra. Pilar Fonseca Leal, coord. de la oficina de Posgrados Clínicos de la Fac. de Medicina de @LaUASLP pidió a la sociedad apoyar a pasantes y docentes que prestan servicio en hospitales públicos cumpliendo con la sana distancia.

facebook.com/LaUASLP/videos…
La catedrática universitaria apuntó que hay dos crisis que convergen: la económica y la de salud. Por ello exhortó a la población a mantener las medidas de prevención: aislamiento, uso de cubrebocas, lavado de manos y evitar reuniones.
#QuédateEnCasa #YoMeProtejo #UASLP
La Dra. Fonseca aseveró que no se puede cantar victoria aún en la lucha contra el #COVID19 pues no se ha llegado ni a la mitad de la pandemia. Por el contrario, se debe maximizar la prevención, aún y cuando termine la Jornada Nacional de Sana Distancia.

The Constitution is not a suicide pact. During the unprecedented #COVID__19 pandemic, Congress (and its state counterparts) must be able to continue to play their essential role. It’s sad that we can’t seem to come together even around this basic principle.
The rules Leader McCarthy is suing to overturn do not allow one member to “control” another’s vote, as he argues. They allow the member who is present to cast the vote of the absent member pursuant to the absent member’s specific instructions. Big difference
As @VBass and I argued in a paper released last week, proxy voting isn’t ideal under ordinary circumstances, but it’s an acceptable short-term solution (full virtual session a la the British and Canadian parliaments would be even better) brennancenter.org/our-work/resea…

Hace unas semanas sentí que mi mundo se derrumbaba. A mis dos padres les dio #COVID__19. Abro un pequeño hilo con algunas cosas que nos ayudaron a salir de esta horrible situación medianamente ilesos.
Mi mamá empezó con síntomas: cuerpo cortado, ojos llorosos y pérdida total del olfato y del gusto. Luego empezó mi papá con dolor de cabeza, fiebre y cuerpo cortado. Sus síntomas fueron completamente distintos, pero dado el antecedente de mi papá las cosas fueron muy distintas.
Una cosa que fue vital para determinar la situación de ambos fue tener a la mano un termómetro y un oxímetro de pulso. El termómetro nos permitía saber la temperatura de su cuerpo y el oxímetro de pulso nos ayudaba a saber el porcentaje de concentración de oxígeno en la sangre.

[THREAD] Les mots choisis par le Pr. Raoult sur YouTube pour parler de l'étude publiée vendredi dans The Lancet et démontrant l'inefficacité de la chloroquine / hydroxychloroquine contre le #COVID__19 sont intéressants à plusieurs points de vue.
NB : il ne s'agit pas ici de démontrer qui a factuellement raison ou tort entre The Lancet et le Pr. Raoult - ce que je serais incapable de faire. Ce que je sais faire en revanche, c'est ecouter un discours politique et ça tombe bien puisque c'en est un.
Le Pr. Raoult estime aindi que l'étude de The Lancet est "foireuse". C'est son sentiment personnel. Comment démontre-il que cette étude est "foireuse" ? En parlant d'abord de son ressenti : il n'a pas confiance dans les publications scientifiques.

Titan is a gem in the Tata stable. I had a TAS stint with them and a few pointers stuck with me.

1.) It is adept in creating powerful sub-brands, each with it's own customer segment and internal culture.
To list a few brands
- Titan
- Sonata
- Fastrack
- Tanishq
- Xylys
(1/6)
2.) Each brand has seperate teams across key functions but leverage the Titan brand for all cost decisions.

3.) Very early they knew the power of diversifying into accessories. Higher LTV + more frequent engagement. Skinn & Titaneye+ are great examples within Titan itself. (2/6)
3.) Despite sitting under the same brand, each brand has a distinct internal culture that feeds into it.
Walk into the Fastrack office & you would see a younger crowd, with a tech. startup vibe while the Titan office would be more seasoned operators, old school office... (3/6)

Hello, after 2 months India has resumed commercial #aviation

My employer has asked me to fly from @DelhiAirport to @BLRAirport and back

I will be tweeting about #NewNormal of flying post during #COVID__19

DEL wears a deserted look with barely 14 flights an hour
Mostly people who have essential needs are taking the flight very cautiously

Suraj, from Noida has an urgent surgery that needs to be done at Bangalore & has covered himself in a hazmet suit

#aviation during #COVID__19
Airlines have placed agents so that you don't get confused about the gate number

Segregation is essential to maintain #SocialDistancing

In 1996, David Sackett wrote in @bmj_latest ,"Evidence Based Medicine is about integrating individual clinical expertise and tracking down the best external evidence with which to answer our clinical questions."

His BMJ editorial has been cited over 17000 times. 1/3
"It is when asking questions about therapy that we should try to avoid the non-experimental approaches, since these routinely lead to false positive conclusions about efficacy," Sackett warned.

He also wrote how bias and confounders can destroy the validity of studies. 2/3
Today, Sackett must be turning in his grave watching academicians and policy makers citing poorly designed studies—full of fatal flaws— to justify their stand during #COVID__19 pandemic.

Have they forgotten how to interpret and apply a study, he must be wondering. 3/3

#Ricciardi accusa la #Lombardia per i morti da #COVID__19

A me sembra che il #M5S , voglia scaricare sulle Regioni la responsabilità del contagio da #Covid_19 .

Il tentativo è una truffa e vi spiego il perché:

L’art. 6 lett.b della legge istitutiva del SSN stabilisce la competenza esclusiva dello Stato, in caso di profilassi contro epidemie e pandemie.

Il Governo ammetteva, in un documento ufficiale del Ministero della Salute del 31 gennaio , di aver avuto una informativa già in data 31 dicembre 2019, sulla situazione venutasi a creare a Wuan , supportata dalla nota dell’OMS, del 6 gennaio.

The most idiotic thing that you'll come across as India-China square off on LAC and Sikkim is pathetic, defeatist commentary from Indian 'think-tanks' and 'strategic experts'. They'll have you believe that China is going to win w/o firing a shot!
From 2008 onward, Chinese started pricking India so much that a even a naturally lethargic Indian establishment reacted by raising new -
1) 3+1 Mountain Divisions
2) 3 x Infantry/Mtn Brigade Groups
3) 2 x Armored Brigades
4) Rejigged one more infantry division for north.
+

- If anything, all this posturing by the Chinese will lead to further hardening of stand by India. And pumping of new resources against the Chinese across the board.

A diplomatic scandal between #Romania and #Moldova broke out today. The Romanian MFA issued a strong reaction to insulting comments of the Moldovan Prime Minister on Facebook that involved Romanian politicians and implicitly the Romanian authorities (THREAD 1/4):
1. The MPE @SMuresan made a political statement on his FB account criticizing the lacking reforms in Moldova. His statements don’t represent neither the official position of the European Parliament nor of the EU or Romania. He has the right to express such opinions, but they...
have a strong political substance. The MPE Muresan refers to a report published by the @EP_ThinkTank, half of which is descriptive and points out structural deficiencies that exist in Moldova. MPE Muresan attributes The failures in reforms are attributed to the incumbent govt.

Por qué insistimos en ensayos clínicos y nos negamos al “yo vi” a los videos de YouTube etc como herramientas👇🏻

¿Para qué sirven los ensayos clínicos?⁉️

🗣Para comparar intervenciones o tratamientos
💉💊

🧵👇🏻
En #COVID__19

Usted considera más oportuno:

1️⃣No hay tiempo para estudios clínicos y que probar lo que se tiene al alcance

2️⃣Esperar ensayos

3️⃣Tratamiento compasivo hasta que lleguen los ensayos
¿Cómo se realizan los ensayos clínicos?

Normalmente se realizan en fases:

Fase 1 y 2: para conocer si es efectivo y seguro👥👥

FASE 3: para evaluar si de verdad funciona y si de verdad es útil, son a mayor escala👥👥👥👥👥👥👥

Paper w/@HardeepSinghMD in @JAMA_current on #COVID__19 & Health IT Infrastructure argues that collecting reliable clinical data from multiple sources could be very helpful in managing public health emergencies. Potential Utility of an IT Infrastructure /1 jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/…
1. Data from a national health IT infrastructure could efficiently generate more accurate estimates of real-time disease burden and need for resources, such as hospital personnel, personal protective equipment, intensive care unit beds, and ventilators. /2
2. Data from this infrastructure may be able to identify new and better therapies by comparing treatment outcomes based on patient-, physician-, and institution-specific factors. This information could help in allocating limited resources and treating patients. /3

#1/3 This @MumbaiPolice cop is Amol Kulkarni. He was posted in Shahunagar, Dharavi. After contracting #COVID__19, he was advised home quarantine. When he got serious, no govt ambulance was available. A pvt ambulance took him to the hospital after waiting for half n hour.
Doctors did not want to mention #COVID19 as the cause of death. They had listed high BP n diabetes. Amol’s colleagues insisted and got the right death certificate. He leaves behind a wife and a very young daughter, who couldn’t even see him last. His family is under quarantine.
This is the situation of frontline workers like cops and Medicos in Maharashtra. The entire account has been narrated by Vijay Chormare, a journalist with @mataonline Kolhapur edition in his Facebook blog. Posting pics here. @CMOMaharashtra this is horrifying

1/ Q: Why do some people get some #COVID19 symptoms and others not? Is the virus changing?

A: It is likely one disease with different manifestations: we also see this with influenza, which has varying symptoms (even though its clinical presentation is more uniform). More below:
2/ Some people with #COVID__19 have gastrointestinal symptoms, while others seem to even have cardiac symptoms.

There are 2 main theories why #COVID affects both:
3/
1) It uses the lungs to spread itself throughout the body, impacting other systems and
2) It binds to the ACE2 surface protein, which is present among many organs and systems including the kidneys, heart, and gastrointestinal tract.
