As I keep getting angry message claiming this was deliberately quoted out-of-context (which it was not; I forgot what I thought, but I guess I just found Dr. Drosten's blunt #hyperbole mildly-interesting), I will now present an extra-extensive superset, longer towards BOTH ends.
[Dr. Drosten:] "We don't expect a vaccine before the #US, uh, #elections. Uhm, we have―
[Dr. Barker:] *laughs*
[Dr. Condit:] *laughs*
[Dr. Racaniello:] *grimaces*
[Dr. Drosten:] *laughs* "Well, we expect a #vaccine before the next GERMAN electionswhich (will be autumn next year)>
> *laughs heartily*
[Dr. Barker:] *laughs*
[Dr. Racaniello:] *laughs*
[Dr. Condit:] "So, I'm curious about the #NBA-vaccine. If you know any details: is it just ›spike‹, or does it have other antigens in it as well?
[Dr. Drosten:] "No, spike. This is a spike-based vaccine."

1/12 Inspired by @IDdocAdi’s flight experience and dedicated to my friends who are trying to plan a #safewedding, I decided to post how we planned a #sociallydistanced wedding in the midst of the #COVID19pandemic. A thread from a healthcare #epidemiologist 👩‍🔬👰
2/12 Our initial plan was to get married in Birmingham, AL, where my fiancé @jonathanbmeadow grew up, and where we met during my ID training at @UAB. We planned to rent the entire space of our favorite Birmingham restaurant #Ovenbird, and get @bourbonbrothers to perform live
3/12 June/July 2020: Alabama’s #COVID19 cases and rate of positivity kept increasing, and we were worried abt poor compliance with #masking. Grateful that #ovenbird decided to stay closed for safety. We thought about moving our wedding to @CityofDurhamNC.

1/ A recent study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences claimed that mandatory face coverings changed the course of the pandemic:
pnas.org/content/early/…
Sadly, based on all of the available evidence, this study is a HOT MESS. We encourage you to still #maskup 😷
2/ While PNAS is a reputable journal, but the quality of published papers isn't garunteed. We’ve seen recent #COVID19 papers from another top journal, The Lancet, retracted after the data could not be accessed for replication (thelancet.com/journals/lance…).
3/ The REAL peer review happens when the broader scholarly community reads and scrutinizes a paper’s methods and findings. Fortunately, this is happening in real time for #COVID_19 research, especially for papers garnering big headlines.
