@petermbenglish I just heard you on @ShelaghFogarty ‘s @LBC show, you’re spot on. Johnson is playing down the pandemic in an increasingly Trumpian manner, the virus isn’t going away and we need to ensure as many people have their #flujab before ‘flu season hits.
If not enough people have a #flu jab, we’ll have a perfect storm of seasonal ‘flu and Covid-19, and if that doesn’t banjax the NHS, then I don’t know what will. As most of the #antimaskers are also #antivaxxers ,
how do we cut through the nonsense that they’re peddling and make them see sense? After all, we need them on board! I’m not sure that us calling them stupid or selfish is helping… it’s making the conspiracy-theory types dig their heels in even deeper. 😔

Okay, I'm seeing a lot of "the end is nigh"-type posts as well as a lot of people misunderstanding this story, so let's talk about "pandemic potential" for #influenza viruses
bbc.com/news/health-53…
This is based on this report in @PNASNews. The paper is behind a paywall, unfortunately, but this isn't journal club: let's just go over the basics of #pandemic #flu.
pnas.org/content/early/…
Flu viruses are segmented, meaning their genomes are divided into 8 pieces of RNA. This means that if multiple flu strains infect the same host, they can basically shuffle their genes and form what we call reassortants.

" SONO CHIRURGO ONCOLOGO, NONCHE' REDATTORE DELL'ENCICLOPEDIA #MEDICA ITALIANA (U.T.E.T.). CORREGGO DELLE IMPRECISIONI. A OGGI #SARSCOV2 HA DETERMINATO 370.000 MORTI IN

LA PATOLOGIA NON E' DEVASTANTE. I CASI TRATTATI IN FASE INIZIALE IN LOMBARDIA
HANNO RISENTITO DI GRAVI INCOMPETENZE TERAPEUTICHE E TOTALE ASSENZA DI COORDINAZIONE COL #MINSAL. SOGGETTI IN CHIARA INSUFFICIENZA RESPIRATORIA SONO STATI INTUBATI O TRATTATI CON CASCHI CPAP...E SONO MORTI.

😷#Flu (is not) in Queensland to 31MAY2020.
Record lowest baseline in 6 years thanks to physical distancing and perhaps related to decreased testing levels as well
Source: health.qld.gov.au/clinical-pract… Image
😷Nationally, Australia has also seen its lowest #flu case numbers (& rates, not shown) in April and May since 2010/2007 respectively (also much less testing was done back then). Image
In Queensland, private lab Sullivan Nicolaides virus testing data shows the same #flu pattern, but adds info about the non-enveloped rhinoviruses (RVs) and adenoviruses. RVs are on the surge (⬆colds and asthma attacks)

#Flu in Australia to 15MAY2020
This year is in pink. The year was tracking for a lot of reported infections - as big as the 2019 #flunami (green). Then physical distancing.
Flu testing *is* still happening, but I can't speak to whether levels may have dropped due to SARS-CoV-2 Image
Respiratory virus data in next tweet is from Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology labs weekly report.
They service #Queensland, northern New South Wales and wider Darwin area and Alice Springs

As expected, #flu and other viruses have been hit hard by physical distancing...but the rhinoviruses are still there. And at decent levels. Interesting. There R0 isn't thought to be higher than SARS-CoV-2 (unless it needs a fresh look) Hardier for longer because non-enveloped? Image

You’ve probably seen or heard about the #PlandemicDocumentary video. It reaches many conclusions that have zero scientific support and are dangerous because they could harm your health. Here are rebuttals and references to just a few of the false claims. A thread. (1/x)
False claim #1: The novel #coronavirus was lab-made.

Truth: Genetic science allows us to understand how and when viruses emerge. Analyses by trusted scientists clearly demonstrates that the virus occurred naturally. (2/x)

#Remdesivir begins distribution in the #USA today via #EUA.

I thought would write down some practical #tips based on my #qualitative anecdotal experience after personally treating close to 200 patients with #COVID19.

For quantitative results, wait for the papers¬—thread
“this juice works, doc!” When you hear similar expressions 1-2 days after starting #remdesivir multiple times, you start to wonder. Don't recall a similar proportion of patients smile after feeling so sick 1-2 days earlier with #COVID19. x/n? Wait for the papers.
Like #treatment for any severe infectious disease (meningitis, Gram-negative bacteremia, influenza pneumonia, etc), earlier is always better. #COVID19 is no different. #Remdesivir stops #SARS-CoV2 replication, but won’t heal the lung injury.

Did #COVID19 sneak into Europe long before the Wuhan epidemic exploded, unnoticed because it arrived during the 2019 #flu season?
This French paper suggests yes.
We need a great deal of retrospective PCR work on "unknown etiology" 2019 pneumonia cases.
sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
I want to caveat this: The "study" is flawed, and unless verified could well turn into a debacle.
BUT, it does underscore the need to do retrospective studies of samples taken from patients who suffered acute pneumonias of unknown cause in late 2019: Were any #COVID19 ?
Indeed. It's worth noting this is published in the same journal that has since apologized to the world for pub'ing the dreadful Didier Roualt #hydroxychloroquine paper that spawned the mania over that drug's use for #COVID19 .

Like most of us in here in #QuarentineLife I've got a lot of extra time on my hands. So I decided to make a thread highlighting the failure, ineptitude, stupidity, and hypocrisy of #Trump and his executive branch in regard to the #COVID19 pandemic
January 18th Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar attempts to speak with Trump about the virus but Trump does not listen and interjects, asking about vaping and when certain flavored vaping products will be back on the market.
wapo.st/2YrrfcG
Jan 22nd Trump said “We have it totally under control.” On January 30th Trump said that “we’re working very closely with China and other countries, and we think it’s going to have a very good ending for us.” Also stated that he trusts President Xi.

#COVID19: 3655 #SARSCoV2 genomes have been sampled.

On the left, strains are organized by the number of mutations.

On the right, strains are organized by time.

The US has the greatest concentration of divergent strains, including ones branching from the most #lethal strains...
On the left, you can see which regions are the most mutated. "S" (~21,750 - ~25500) corresponds to the S1 and S2 spike protein fragments and there appears to be one major mutant site there. On the right, you can see a world map of all strains.

#COVID19

nextstrain.org/ncov/global
In contrast, the flu is much more slowly evolving, with only 6 dominant strains as of 2019.

The #flu also doesn't have the same immune cloaking mechanisms as #SARSCoV2 and is evenly distributed across the world.

Stop comparing the flu to SARS.

1/ The PERCEPTION of something *believed* to be threatening triggers a response in the amygdala, which activates lower areas of the brain that changes one's physiology to freeze, fight, or run.
AND....
@thorns_thicket @Emilinalala @JVoluntaryist @raleighpolice 2/ #FakeNews & Daily Death Counts keep the #Amygdala charged-up for those who believe #COVID19 is to be feared.

When the #amygdala is activated your higher brain functions= #criticalthinking, don't work

On Mar 24, we had ~800 #COVID deaths in the US. On Apr 4, when the count was at ~8,000, I predicted ~20,000 deaths by Easter Sunday, Apr 12.

My prediction was spot on. Current tally is 20,600.


1/
In this PEDAGOGICAL thread, I will explain how I came up with this number. This thread is not meant for systems experts.

I became interested in, and very concerned about, the spread of #coronavirus since January 2020, when I saw the initial datasets from #Wuhan.

2/
I am an applied mathematician, and I specialize in modeling dynamic systems, besides other things. I am not an epidemiologist, but the spread of infectious diseases are governed by the same mathematical rules that govern dynamical systems in general.

We need some #GoodNews. Yes, this is a study in mice but this is so far the first peer-reviewed #coronavirus #vaccine study with promising results in @EBioMedicine published by @TheLancet from @PittTweet @UPMCnews @PittHealthSci vaccinologists
When tested in mice, the #vaccine, delivered through a fingertip-sized patch, produces #antibodies specific to #SARSCoV2 #virus. Researchers were able to act quickly because they already laid the groundwork during earlier #coronavirus #epidemics.
Compared to the experimental #mRNA #vaccine that entered clinical trials, this one - called #PittCoVacc, short for #Pittsburgh #Coronavirus Vaccine - follows a more established approach, using lab-made pieces of viral protein to build immunity (same way current #flu shots work)

Liberty or Bondage? I’ll preface this thread by saying it’s a tragedy anyone has become sick or died as a result of the #ChineseVirus. Having said that, we will decide if public health policymakers have appointed themselves as the Fourth Branch of Government. #COVID19
On March 13, 2020 President Trump declared a National Emergency over #COVID19 and California became the first state to issue a “Stay at Home” order for its citizens, and others quickly followed suit. These orders were based on models (projections). usatoday.com/story/news/nat…
To understand how these models are generated, we will look at how the CDC collects data on #Flu deaths and what is included in those numbers. Flu deaths aren’t counted by death certificates alone, they’re “estimated” based on a number of things. cdc.gov/flu/about/burd…

I refuse to take a vaccine -loaded with a biomarker- for an illness that is treatable with medication.

Bill Gates is not a Doctor.
He creates pandemic simulations like #Event201.
They lay out their plan.
Trade, Travel, Finance, Communications.
It's all there
#COVID19
Segment 1 Medical Countermeasures
Segment 2 Trade and Travel
Segment 3 Finance
Segment 4 Communications

Sure sounds like a well planned and orchestrated operation to me, starting off with #1 - Medical Countermeasures
The Players:
-Johns Hopkins BLOOMBERG SCHOOL of PUBLIC HEALTH
-Center for Health Security
-World Economic Forum
-Bill & Melinda Gates foundation

Bill Gates steps down from Microsoft 3/13/20

இந்தப்பெயரை சிலர் 2019 ஆண்டின் இறுதியிலும் பலர் இருபதுகளின் ஆரம்பங்களிலும் அறியக்கூடியதானது.ஆனால் உண்மையில் கொரோனாவை 1960 களிலேயே கண்டுபிடித்துவிட்டனர்.ஆம் அது தான் #Flu நோயை உண்டாக்கும் #Influenza Virus. அதற்கு முன்னால் FLU நோயால் யாரும் இறக்கவில்லையா என்றால் நிச்சயமாக ஆம் ..

As the elderly are more susceptible to #COVID19 w/ signs of lung #inflammation, here's a thread about our @virusesimmunity 2016 flu paper on #antiviral resistance, excessive lung #inflammation, & a strategy to boost disease tolerance! science.sciencemag.org/content/352/62…
First we demonstrated that monos & macs from older adults have impaired type I IFN (antiviral) & #ISG responses but intact cytokine responses after #flu infection. To probe the possible in vivo consequences of weak #IFN responses in the face of robust inflammation...
... we made a mouse model that mimicked this immune response in the elderly (Mx1+/+ mice w/ genetic deletion of tlr7, mavs). Failure to induce type I IFN led to high viral titer, 2º bacterial infection, severe lung inflammation, and death.
