EMERGENCY: New York lawmakers are about to pass a budget that undermines everything they say they believe in and doubles down on the racist criminalization of poverty. Thread. 1/
After months of talking about the need to address the troubling increase in gun violence, NY leaders are trying to push a bill that targets victimless, low-level crimes of poverty like jumping the turnstile or mothers who can’t afford diapers for dangerous pre-trial jailing. /2
This plan will do nothing to address gun violence. It will only worsen mental health, substance use disorder, and poverty. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to matter. /3

1/Welp, I spent last night continuing my research into the #blizzard2022 #hoax.

Thankfully, @Twitter and Facebook have helpful algorithms that pointed me in the direction of *real* experts who helped me round out my thinking.
2/I studied poignant, analytical memes from leading thinkers in finance, technology, and art sales.

To my surprise, their insights actually CONFIRMED all of my pre-conceived notions about this storm.

Thanks for the research help @Twitter!
3/All of this research has led me to conclude that the hype around #blizzard2022 is being driven by the weather-industrial complex.

In short, it is all #propaganda.

I am concerned for our republic.

Don’t be fooled by bad actors who use #disinformation to scare you. Fight the #fear with #facts.
#Thread
People have been spreading a false narrative that they are teaching #CRT to kids in school. In #reality CRT is a complicated theory created in law school. Way above the difficulty level of any k-12 curriculum.
#CRT does not teach anyone to be anti-#American. It tries to get a clear picture of how #racism effected our legal system.

HOW TO BOIL A FROG:

Imagine that someone was able to collect information on occurrences of chest pain in every "otherwise healthy" university student, staff member or faculty in North America that were exposed to chemicals as part of their studies, employment, or tenure.

1/... Image
Data was collected for decades from the beginning of Sept. to the end of April - every year.

"Inclusion criteria" included all of the above - and "otherwise healthy" was defined as NO previous episodes of chest pain prior to enrollment, employment, tenure - AND..

2/...
...NO pre-existing history of cardiac problems, hypertension or respiratory health issues.

Data for male & female subjects is separated and comparison between to the two is analyzed.

HOWEVER...

🧵Well, yesterday, Dr. Vanderhoff in his press conference finally got with the program and said "We are seeing early indicators that cases appear to be peaking and beginning to point toward a decline."

I'm so glad he's so timely with that information. Although to anyone who actually looks at the data itself, it's been pretty clear for weeks now that we are declining.
Not 'starting', not 'early indicators' not 'appears' - it's right there, glaringly obvious, nothing but their own data, attached to this post and a hundred others just like it for all to follow along.

A completely unique, completely faulty, and all-inclusive "case definition" (aka "inclusion criteria" for data) was invented for CV-19 that no other respiratory virus has ever had.

"Hospitalizations", "ICU Admissions", "Deaths", etc. are all just subsets of the total number of "cases" (aka "positive" test results) - and as such are subject to the same "case definition".

- "collectively protect the general public"
- "collective rights to health and safety"

Their (and the government's) ENTIRE justification for vaccine mandates is that the unvaccinated pose a risk to the health & safety of others.

This however is steeped in logical fallacies.

Congresswoman Cory Bush (D) of Missouri voted to defund the police but paid $70,000 of tax prayer money for personal security. And she said you can suck it up because SHE needs to protection.
She also blamed needing security on white supremacy and racism.
Mayor of SanFran London Breed cut $120m from the SF police dept while increasing the security detail of public officials from $1.7m to $2.6m over a five year period.

1/ @APDillon_ @jonpsanders @JohnLockeNC @markrobinsonNC @Chad_Adams NC C19 trends through 7/27/21. NCDHHS consistently modifies their dashboard (adds tests which ⬇️ incidence) and adds death data as far back as 6/20, & is no longer updating on weekends.

क़रीब 3.5 करोड़ की जनसंख्या वाला भारत का छोटा सा राज्य है केरल। चाइनीज़ वायरस के पहले तीनों मामले इसी राज्य में मिले थे। वामपंथी शासित है, महामारी के दौरान भी @vijayanpinarayi शासित ही रहा। गुलाम मानसिकता के पत्रकारों ने टीवी बहस में, अख़बारों में कोविड प्रबंधन की खूब प्रशंसा की
अभी भी बड़ा वर्ग है पत्रकारों का जो पहली फ़ुरसत में वामपंथ शासित, साक्षर केरल की चमत्कारी कहानियाँ सुनाने लगता है। बीच रास्ते गाय का बछड़ा मारकर उस राज्य में खाया गया, लेकिन वर्तमान संदर्भों में भी चाइनीज़ वायरस का क़हर देश पर लगातार टूटा तो उसमें केरल की भूमिका सबसे ख़राब रही
अब दूसरी लहर के कम होने की बात की जा रही है तो भी केरल एक ऐसा राज्य है जो चुनौती बना है। अभी केरल में प्रतिदिन 12000 से ज़्यादा संक्रमित हो रहे हैं। दुर्भाग्य से ठीक होने वालों की संख्या संक्रमितों से कम है। खाड़ी के पैसे पर पलने वाले राज्य की सच्चाई कम ही जानते हैं #FactsMatter

A few hours ago, the @OttawaCitizen posted an article entitled, "Face to Face with COVID deniers in the ICU."

Here is the reply I posted:

- It is OK to believe that some people will get really sick...and some with die from COVID-19.

1/...
- It is OK to realize that the vast majority of those patients are elderly, have at least 3 comorbidities (affecting heart, lungs, immune system), AND live in a cohorted care setting - such as LTC.

2/...
- It is OK to realize that smoking is a HUGE risk factor for respiratory infections - and one that is often forgotten or discounted by patients, the health care system and media.
(Still looking at vaping and CV-19...)

Hey #Ontario

8 things to think about as we head into a new week:

1) Reminder: "Hospitalization", "ICU" & "Deaths" are all subsets of the total number of "Cases" - & are subject to the same case definition.

- The case definition only requires...

1/...
...a recent "positive" test result (NO symptoms required).

- This means that neither "Cases", "Hospitalizations", "ICU" nor "Deaths" require the person to actually have COVID-19 symptoms to be counted.

2) #BREAKING: Viruses do NOT care about your feelings or how important your task is (or you feel that it is).

- If a virus so contagious and/or dangerous that the only way to protect yourself is to take precautions - then the level of risk does NOT...

Someone asked me yesterday why schools aren't mainly open in San Francisco (despite 30 cases in city of 896K yesterday (& they test), <10 hospitalizations) or California (hundreds of thousand of tests done, 1400 cases in state of 40 million, lowest case rate in nation).
But do think clear why. We took a very partisan approach which - in this case- meant we used a fear-based, exaggerated approach to pandemic management without principles of #harmreduction (harm reduction reduces risk to a pathogen by sensible messages)
nytimes.com/2021/03/18/bri…
And, understandably, if we scared people more and took a fear-based approach, we could hopefully reduce infections by getting people to stay away from each other (a common tactic: people used to use scare tactics with HIV as well) instead of #harmreduction

1/ @APDillon_ @Chad_Adams @jonpsanders @JohnLockeNC @PeteKaliner @DrKellyVictory I’m old enough to remember when we were told to stay home, wear masks in/outside, don’t go near anyone, b/c if we did any of that we “could kill grandma.”
2/ All of this is supposed to protect the vulnerable, right?

Yet there are current outbreaks at 135 SNF’s & 73 residential care facilities in NC as of 4/20/21.

Sure, NC is doing a bang up job of protecting the vulnerable 🙄
3/ NC needs to ensure policies/procedures are in place at these facilities to monetarily reward ZERO Covid cases (think reimbursement) to truly protect this vulnerable population. These facilities also need to reduce patient:CNA/nurse ratio.

Just a reminder...

"Hospitalizations", "ICU admissions", & "deaths" attributed to COVID-19 are all a subset of the total # of "cases" - and as such are subject to the case definition which only requires a "+" test result (with or WITH symptoms) usually within previous 30 days.
health.gov.on.ca/en/pro/program…

So, if you had a "positive" test result on admission to hospital for emergency heart surgery, etc. - and NEVER had or developed symptoms during your entire hospital stay - you would be classified as a "COVID-19 Hospitalization".
If you had a "+" test result & then died of traumatic injuries after an accident, committed suicide, or were already on death's doorstep & were expected to die imminently from cancer - yet had absolutely NO symptoms of COVID-19 - you would still be classified a "COVID-19 death".

@DLeonhardt article today NYT illustrates what @drlucymcbride, I & so many others discussing: a fear of normal or even following simple March 8 CDC guidelines that vaccinated people can get together without masks/distancing due to irrational fear.
nytimes.com/2021/04/19/bri…
"Fortunately, [fear] also curable. The vaccines have nearly eliminated death, hospitalization and other serious Covid illness among people who [got] shots. .vaccines have also radically reduced chances that people contract even a mild version of Covid or can pass it on to others"
Even acclaimed experts like @ashishjha realized how "awesome" it was to meet friend for drink unmasked 2 months (!) after his last shot. My advice for society on this as MD who talks to patients about irrational fear all time?
