#epitwitter Just heard from JTB that our #COVID19 paper was the most downloaded in last 90 days. I plan to spend summer developing projects that build on same concepts and methods. Happy to accommodate collaborations with those interested. Just send note.

Broader scope viewpoints article outlining effects and inferences of unobserved variation in disease dynamics just updated on arXiv: arxiv.org/abs/2009.01354
Selection on individual variation in susceptibility or exposure to causative factors of disease (contagious or not) introduces biases when not considered in analysis.

Common errors include the following:

2 yrs ago, to raise awareness for the #MillionsMissing due to #MECFS, I started a 🧵 on how tragic chronic illness has consumed my life

But I was too sick to finish, & shortly after uninstalled Twitter. Trapped by illness, unable to advocate.

2 surgeries later... 🧵, 🎬 2

1/
2017: I was Prof of #Epidemiology @PublicHealthUGA, researching #HIVprevention and #vaccine prep for emerging epidemics. I directed an epi training program @ICI3D. I loved my work & my amazing colleagues!

I was healthy & active 🚴🏄‍♂️ 🥁

2/
Then, I bought a 🏡 and had it renovated. Jan 2018 I moved to the newly built master bedroom addition, I became sick.

⏩ 2 years to 2020. Water burst thru walls on 2 sides of my bed. Revealing walls, subfloor, crawl space filled with mold due to construction defects

1/ Q: Has almost everyone been infected with COVID by now?
A: Recent estimates suggest around 58% of the population in the US and over 70% in England have been previously infected, with BIG increases during the Omicron wave.

dearpandemic.org/numbers-infect…
2/ A recent @CDCgov MMWR report estimated seroprevalence from a convenience sample of blood collected for medical tests.

➡️Roughly 58% of Americans showed evidence of previous SARS-CoV-2 infection in their blood by Feb '22.

cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/7…? Image
3/ ➡️ During the Omicron wave from December 2021-February 2022, this estimate increased from 33% to 58%.
➡️ Rates vary a lot by age, ranging from 33.2% for those over age 65 to 75% for those under age 18.

I'm a doctor who does research.
I've annoyed DOZENS of statisticians.
Here are 5 proven ways to exasperate them.

#medtwitter #epitwitter #statstwitter
1. Start every request for help with, "I know the p-value is the probability the null hypothesis is true..."

Then when they start to object, roll right into your request. "...so can you find smaller p-values?" or something along those lines.

Works every time.
2. Make spreadsheets as bright and creative as possible

Use lots of colors, alternate between three date formats, be liberal with random capitals in column names, use free text answers, encourage puns.

Also, be sure to say "have fun with the analysis" when you hand it over.

1/14 Dear #epitwitter,
Our first peer reviewed #COVID modelling paper has just been made available online by the grand classic Journal of Theoretical Biology 🙏authors.elsevier.com/sd/article/S00…
Others will follow shortly I believe.
2/14 Joined this platform in June 2019 to say some forms of individual variation impact epidemic dynamics hugely. Not all variation matters and explanation isn’t "nonlinearities this and that". Key process can be described linearly, intuitively, and quantifiably by inference.
3/14 When covid-19 emerged I couldn’t but apply concepts and new inference procedures to the pandemic. Also couldn’t but communicate results through this and other platforms.
This post summarises concepts, results, how they were received, and how mission has been accomplished.

Last week, a few of my wonderful @Columbia colleagues and I wrote an open letter to illustrate that among public health researchers and practitioners, there is wide support that we use rigorous accumulated scientific evidence to guide COVID-19 policy. (a🧵)
This is especially important if we want to ensure we have an equitable response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic (which, as @Lakshmi_RKG so eloquently states here -- has been inequitable from the start). 2/n

It shouldn't have to be said that the health, well-being, and safety of all children (and their schools, their families, and their communities at large) matter. It honestly breaks my heart that this assumption isn't a given. (3/n)

I tried to impartially assist both the Trump and Biden teams in the Fall of 2020 by providing a forecasts of probable pandemic outcomes, including evidence of waning immunity.

Scientists with megaphones talked over & misled Biden. #epitwitter may have determined 2024 election.
Prominent epidemiologists who now work in the federal government claimed I was a "far-right Trump-supporting Libertarian"

A more accurate description of our differences is I was playing the long game of pandemic policy chess and they were playing COVID whack-a-mole.
The institutional and messaging inequalities in academia combined with academic's political biases (way left of the USA) and their Twitter mob-mentality to push balancing voices out of the room.

And now, Biden has approval ratings below Trump's March 2020 ratings.

Need help w/ UK seroprevalence data
I recall previously seeing estimates of for SARS-CoV-2 infection for UK, but now I can only find estimates for exposure to spike protein which is infection OR vaccination (fig from
ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulati…)
but...
I want seroprevalence for infection so need data on antibodies to nucleocapsid protein or other non-spike protein. Does this exist?
I also can't find info on the response rate for survey. This page has response rates, but they are old (from July 2020) & they are very low (<15%). What is current response rate for serosurvey? ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulati…

Some have claimed that a "Johns Hopkins Study" showed that "lockdowns" have been ineffective against #COVID19 and there's been a "full-on media blackout" of this study.
Here I cover for @Forbes this & the problems with such claims
#epitwitter #scicomm
forbes.com/sites/brucelee…
2/THREAD As I detailed in my article, it's not even appropriate to call this working paper a "Johns Hopkins study" as @BadFoxGraphics pointed out. Only one of the 3 authors is affiliated w/ John Hopkins & the university didn't seem to commission or endorse this working paper.
3/THREAD Moreover, this so-called "Johns Hopkins study" was not a peer-reviewed publication in a reputable scientific journal. It's a working paper. BIG DIFFERENCE Anyone can upload a working paper to a website, as long as they have access to the Internet & opposable thumbs.

Hi #EpiTwitter, #AcademicTwitter, #StatsTwitter, #JobSeakers:

I am currently searching for a postdoc and 2 data analysts (postings below). I want to make the case for why these opportunities may be a great fit for you.
But first, the job links:

Postdoc: bit.ly/3AUXvGs

Data analyst: bit.ly/3rdM89k
Argument 1: The analyses we’re working on are fascinating, novel, and all aim to reduce health inequities.

(disclaimer: I may not be an unbiased source on whether the work I do is interesting)

So, my wife is a coeliac, which means she gets extremely unwell whenever she eats gluten. Super fun. In the journey that is cooking for her, I came across this fascinating device called the Nima sensor
This cool little piece of tech processes food, then uses existing immunoassays to detect gluten in the sample. Put in your food, it'll tell you if it's actually gluten free
However, when I came across the product on Tiktok, there were tons of comments saying that the device constantly produced false positives and was not worth spending money on

Which I, naturally, got super excited by because it meant I could USE EPI IN REAL LIFE
