When talking about jeopodising 'National Security', are they referring to jeopodising their hidden arrangements with 'other' National Security Agencies?

(1/4) For this week’s #SundaySpotlight on #publichealth science, I’m highlighting a #PublicHealthReports article about recent trends in childhood #flu vaccination. bit.ly/32RXfqO
(2/4) New research shows that influenza vaccination coverage among children has plateaued at unacceptably low level: in 2017-18, only ~1/2 of american kids were vaccinated
(3/4) As #infectious diseases, such as measles, flu, and even #COVID19, threaten impact our communities, it’s imperative that we protect our children’s health

What garbled bollocks is this?

If this 👇 is genuinely the advice & not a spun version of it, in some feeble attempt to float the idiotic concept of "#ImmunityPassports" again, then it's patently absurd.

If someone develops "further symptoms" of #COVID19, then they could be... Image
...#infectious, i.e. spreading the virus to others, even if they DO have #antibodies. Plus do we REALLY want to go down the route of having to #trust something the Gov't has issued, rather than the evidence of our own eyes?

The science on #SARSCoV2 #immunity is far from clear...
...and even FURTHER from supporting any argument for #ImmunityPassports than it was at the beginning of the pandemic - when not knowing anything at all about #CIVID19 & #immunity made 'em at least a *theoretical* consideration, albeit a Very. Bad. Idea:

The government declared #COVID-19 as a “notified disaster” under the #Disaster Management Act, 2005. As per Section 10 of the Act, the Health Ministry has directed National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority to regulate the price and availability of #sanitizers and #masks. (1/n)
The prevention of fake news over social media is also being controlled by the #government.
It is for the first time that under Section 6(2)(i) of the Act, a national lockdown was declared by the National Disaster Management Authority and implemented in the States u/s 38. (2/n)
This affects the freedom of movement and assembly of citizens with the exception of provision of essential goods, but is required for the prevention of the spread of #COVID19. Hence, the police are permitted to book violators of the lockdown under the provisions of the IPC. (3/n)

Incredible new study 👉 Demonstrates that #gut-innervating nociceptor #neurons modulate several layers of GI physiology including regulation of #Payers Patch M cells + small intestine microbial communities + defense against enteric pathogen Salmonella: sciencedirect.com/science/articl… ImageImageImage
2/ Overall the study expands the role of the #nervous system in host defense and suggests that “manipulation of #neurons and their mediators could be a target for therapies to treat inflammatory and #infectious diseases”
3/ For more info on the study check out this press release which describes the findings in more simple terms: news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/…

@SimonoffBob @Hawknest24 Hey! Check this out 👉 This paper proposes mechanisms by which #PMS may be part of a broader set of #infectious illnesses that are exacerbated by cyclic changes in immunosuppression, which are induced by cyclic changes in estrogen and progesterone: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/17468… Image
@SimonoffBob @Hawknest24 Our own team’s work has focused greatly on how nuclear receptors that control #hormone expression (like alpha-thyroid, VDR etc) also express key genes associated with the human immune response + innate immunity towards infection: microbeminded.com/wp-content/upl… ImageImage
@SimonoffBob @Hawknest24 Here we show that VDR receptor expression changes during the #menstrual cycle - especially in the cycling endometrium 👉 That, in turn, alters how innate immune peptides under VDR control allow a woman’s body to manage infection/microbiome dysbiosis: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/19758…

Not to mention that factoring the #microbiome/virome (+ the #pathogens that end up persisting in these communities!) into #ME/CFS 👉 allows “unique #infectious history” to factor into disease progression (w/ #chemical exposures/stress etc facilitaring pathogen persistence)
Also keep in mind pathogens can persist in #latent forms 👉 Eg: here Zika was shown capable of persisting in the #cerebrospinal fluid + lymph nodes of monkeys for months after the #virus had been cleared from peripheral blood and urine: sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
Ok that’s it for now 😅 Thanks for reading!
