Un an après, le bilan est très mitigé. Si la massification a bien eu lieu avec 500 000 dossiers déposés fin octobre pour 1,6 milliards dépensés ... mais combien de passoires supprimées ? Un peu plus de 40 000 par an. très très loin des besoins.

1/210: Markus Kerber's Apollo 13

In March 2020, the German Ministry of the Interior @BMI_Bund issued a #strategypaper that weaponized fear in order to accomplish compliance with #COVID policies. The authors' emails were litigated under #FOIA request. My analysis. #MEGATHREAD ⬇️ Image
2/210: The @BMI_Bund emails have been released to the public as they were successfully sued by lawyer Niko Härting in a FOIA proceeding. They can be requested directly from @BMI_Bund/ @rki_de via @fragdenstaat. Download it here: Image
3/210: The emails originated March 19-25, 2020. They are so explosive because they map the inner discourse of the @BMI_Bund's now infamous #COVID-19 taskforce, which produced several crucial domestic policy documents. @OttoKolbl

1/210: Markus Kerbers Apollo13
Im März 2020 stellte das @BMI_Bund eine COVID-19 Taskforce zusammen, die ein umstrittenes #Strategiepapier verfasste. Die #Emails der Autoren wurden per Informationsfreiheitsgesetz freigeklagt. Hier kommt meine Analyse der 59 Emails. #MEGATHREAD ⬇️ Image
2/210: Die @BMI_Bund-Mails sind geschwärzt für die Öffentlichkeit freigegeben, seit sie durch den Anwalt Niko Härting per IFG-Verfahren erstritten wurden. Über @fragdenstaat können sie direkt beim @BMI_Bund @rki_de angefragt werden. ImageImage
3/210: Die Emails enstanden vom 19.-25. März 2020. Sie sind deshalb so brisant, weil sie die inneren Diskurse der inzwischen berüchtigten COVID-19 Taskforce des @BMI_Bund abbilden, aus der diverse innenpolitische Dokumente hervorgegangen sind. @OttoKolbl

(A Thread, as promised, to remake my pinned tweet.)
Last year was the intro into a new reality.

I am going to post some links, some links I post will not have any description because the overlords do not like definitions. (The newspeak dictionary is not complete yet.)

First up, while no one was looking Gov Tim was deciding 👇
"Placing Children At The Center of Government" was a great idea.

He executed EO19-34 (rescinded 11-05) and rebuilds his Children's Cabinet.
He also established his Children's Cabinet "Advisory Council" which per law can obtain funding from private 👇…

We have a serious emergency.

Late this afternoon we were contacted by a senior named “Helen”. She only had one meal left in her kitchen.

She called us for help and we are helping.

We will be using the last of our available funds to get her some much needed groceries. #YYC #YEG
We will hopefully be giving her enough groceries for an entire month so she doesn’t have to worry about having to choose between medications/food, food/electricity, food/rent.

Too many #Calgarians are being ignored and forgotten. Too many #Calgarians are afraid to ask for #help.
We need help. If anyone can help with a donation towards her food hamper, we will be here for about 2 more hours because we are shopping for four seniors tonight.

You can help by donating by any of the options ⬇️ #Donate #community #donations #DisabilityTwitter #BeKind #Alberta

1/ A: Celebrate the mild #flu season & take what we have learned this year to inform future behavior. Harmful germs are not going away. 🦠 Illness from bacteria & viruses that make us sick do not “strengthen” the #immune system & contribute to significant complications & death. Image
2/ The lack of infectious illnesses will not #weaken your #immunesystem. Public health measures to combat #COVID19 including social distancing, masks, & extra hand washing greatly reduced the incidence of some bad microbes that cause common infectious illnesses such as the flu.
3/ More than 15,000 US deaths attributed to the #flu were averted this year. Other common viruses, like rhinoviruses, did not decrease as consistently. #Bacteria & #viruses that cause illness will continue to exist.

Governments make me laugh!!!

Most Governments, across the world, have implemented severe, strict 'covid restrictions' on their jurisdictions.

Covid 'cases' and 'deaths' still increase by the thousands.

Governments double down.

As this occurs, the Governments place harsher restrictions on their citizens.


All these 'covid restrictions and regulations' don't work
Did it ever occur to these Governments that their 'covid strategies' are not the solution?



1⃣ Economies crumble
2⃣ Unemployment increases
3⃣ Bankruptcies galore
4⃣ LTC Homes become death traps
5⃣ Mental illness increase
6⃣ $Billion for covid relief

Radio silence for 1 hour, binge-watching cartoons for over an hour and other #Christmas memories from my childhood – a thread to the past in Iceland and Christmas there in the countriside #isolation in the 1970’s where Radio and TV played a key role.
I grew up on a farm just outside the village of Vopnafjörður northeast-Iceland. The village with ca 600 people is surrounded by a few farms like ours but the next living soul is more than 40 km away! It is one of the most isolated places in Iceland (8 hours from Reykjavik).
Back in the 1970´s the roads out of Vopnafjörður were frequently closed for weeks, even months. So apart from flying in or out (not cheap!) via the airport, our only connection to the outside world was the radio and the TV. But until the mid 1980´s Iceland had one radio station!

1. We are resolute in our criticism of the #lockdown response to #Covid19

There is a growing body of evidence-based studies that show the collateral damage being caused by the current approach is causing devastating harm that will be felt for years ahead.
2.Since March 2020 #cancer screening has been suspended, routine diagnostic work deferred, and only urgent symptomatic cases prioritised for diagnostic intervention.…
3.The pandemic has resulted in an inflation in acute #cardiovascular deaths.…

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

Es gibt sie noch, die guten aufrichtigen Richter:

Die 3. Strafkammer des Berufungsgerichts von Lissabon urteilt, daß es rechtswidrig ist, Menschen wegen eines #PCRtest Ergebnisses in #Quarantäne zu nehmen, da der Test ungeeignet sei, eine Infektion zu belegen. Image
1. Der #PCRtest sei lediglich eine Methode einer Hilfsdiagnose, aber nur Ärzte können wirkliche Diagnosen stellen. Schon daran fehlt es.

"#SASRCoV2 has never been isolated". A thread.

1/ What is a valid virus #isolation and why is this important? I am not a virologist, neither are most of you. This is not virology-specific however, it's simple, universal logic that has not yet been applied to #Covid19.
2/ There are many papers claiming to do an isolation of SARSCoV2. None of them we looked at are correct. It seems virology lost its way the moment PCR / molecular / genomic tools became available. Incorrect isolations are easy to spot. What constitutes a valid isolation?
3/ Valid isolation may not include culturing viruses in VERO or other types of host cells. Culturing may mutate the virus. Before you can be sure culturing does not mutate the virus, you need to proof that. For that you first need uncultured isolation to compare.

--> uncultured!

>> Verkürzung der Isolation von 14 auf 10 Tage <<
Das @rki_de stellte gestern ein neue Expertise online und schlägt darin die Verkürzung der #Isolation für tatsächlich Erkrankte auf 10 Tage und die Beibehaltung von 14 Tagen #Quarantäne für die Gesunden vor… Image
Darauf muss man erstmal kommen. 🤦‍♂️
Die sind einfach nur verdächtigt krank zu sein. Das ist natürlich nochmal viel schlimmer als tatsächlich krank zu sein. Wer nach 10 Tagen noch keine #Symptome entwickelt, ist offenbar weder krank noch infektiös. Also kann man sich auf 10 Tage Image
auch in der Quarantäne beschränken. Und eine ganz wichtige Erkenntnis der RKI über asymptomatische Fälle (wenn sie denn überhaupt infiziert sind) möchte ich Euch nicht vorenthalten. Sie spielen für das Infektionsgeschehen KEINE oder sehr untergeordnete Rolle, @Karl_Lauterbach. Image

I’m scared. I’m afraid. I’m concerned. I and my family are now in isolation. My daughters school has an outbreak and she woke up with symptoms yesterday. I kept her home and immediately called #AbHealth to book tests for us all.
But I’m scared. Scared for my children, scared for my husband. Scared and afraid. I’m told that since it’s just my daughter that’s exhibiting symptoms..the rest of my family can still go on with our normal lives. We can still go out into the community and still go out in public.
That makes me angry! 😡 I am doing what’s right for my family! I am keeping everyone at home and I am keeping everyone isolated for the requisite 14 days! Why? Because I not only want to protect my family. I want to protect you and yours!

Ein Tweet von @hendrikstreeck wirbelt gerade viel Staub auf. Dabei ist er inhaltlich eigtl. harm- und belanglos. Der verlinkte @nytimes-Artikel hingegen legt den Finger in die Wunde: wie unterscheiden wir infektiöse Träger von nicht-infektiösen. Aber eins nach dem anderen… 1/16
„Asymptomatisch“ = symptomlos bei positivem #SARSCoV2 Test kann mehreres bedeuten. 1) Person hat einen extrem milden Verlauf -> hiervon spricht @hendrikstreeck; 2) Person steht der Beginn der Symptome noch bevor; 3) Person hat Infektion bereits überstanden.
Bei Fall 1) kann stimmen, was @hendrikstreeck sagt; ein sehr milder Verlauf bei Virusinfekt bedeutet häufig, dass das Virus sich nur schwach vermehrt ➔ geringe Viruslast (VL) ➔ geringere Infektiosität. Siehe unbedingt weiter unten im Thread!
Ausnahme: siehe Zweig-Kommentar

There appears to be a lot of confusion between #ISOLATION and #QUARANTINE.

These are two distinct and crucial public health measures required to prevent the spread of #COVID19.

However, they are triggered by different things and the guidance differs for both... Here's why 1/n
Firstly a few important definitions
#ISOLATION (or self-isolation) is used for people with confirmed/suspected COVID-19.

#QUARANTINE (or restricted movements) is used for people who were potentially exposed to the virus, via a close contact or travel, but who are NOT sick.
The current Irish guidance recommends that you can end #ISOLATION If your test comes back negative (e.g. if you had symptoms).

If your test is positive, you can only end #ISOLATION if:
No fever for 5 days and
14 days since first developed symptoms.…
