1/🧵COVID & Death: #JAMA
📍N=1,846 pneumonia patients w versus w/out COVID
📍COVID didn’t “invent” a new lung disease
📍We freaked out saying vents needed to be so different
📍Docs erred as we deviated from our evidence-based

Why should YOU care?
2/ COVID is a very long pneumonia process, but we exacerbated it…

This graph shows that Death occurs similarly, but COVID #death takes longer (10 vs. 7 days).

Time to discharge alive is twice as long (10 vs. 5 days) in COVID vs non-COVID pneumonia.

We caused a lot of this 😞
3/ Let’s breaks outcomes down by O2 levels…
At 90 days, death rates were same in COVID & non-COVID pneumonia for patients w moderate & severe low O2 levels

COVID was NOT a predictor of more death or liberation from the vent or hospital (after matching & multivariable models)

#Walach'S #Maskenstudie wurde immer noch nicht zurückgezogen. #Walach, #Weikl, #Traindl & #Diemer haben mittlerweile eine Antwort an #Jama geschrieben.

Daraus: "It is true that we were skeptical regarding the usefulness of such masks."

That is understated.

Tweet 1/n
Übersetzt: "Es stimmt, dass wir skeptisch waren, was die Nützlichkeit solcher Masken anging."

Skepsis ist eine gute Einstellung. Aber #Walach, #Weikl, #Traindl & #Diemer waren nicht skeptisch sondern überzeugt von der Gefährlichkeit der Masken.

Tweet 2/n
#Weikl sprach bereits im November letzten Jahres im Zusammenhang von Masken über #Nötigung und #Körperverletzung. Das ist keine Skepsis sonder ein Vorurteil.

These video scenes of #brutal #LawEnforcement are from around the world and Australia figures prominently.
It is #dehumanising and mentally debilitating to see this and to comprehend the #inhumanity
Is it right to assault citizens like this?
The #G7summit was a cosy affair. Social distancing for the cameras and free-for-all off-it. #Scomo was in the midst of this #Cornwall retreat to plan the next phase of #Lockstep.
Do any of them appear concerned about the “pannddemmic” ?
#Scomo returns from his #G7Summit2021 all buoyed in #Lockstep and then NSW goes into #Lockdown followed by restrictions in other states.
Do you see fingerprints on this?
Is #GladysCluster trying too hard to convince?
See where we are on cases curve??

Watch @NickHudsonCT from @PanData19 talk about the “Ugly Truth of COVID-19”
Actuary and data analytics expert.

The false narrative
The unjustifiable fear
The reality

2/- #Tedros from @WHO presented a false #Covid19 and #Flu mortality comparison on 3 March 2020 by conflating Case Fatality Rate CFR of Covid mortality with Infection Fatality Rate IFR of Flu mortality which created worldwide fear and panic. This was deliberate. Image
3/- #JohnIoannidis @StanfordMed debunked and refuted #Tedros statement saying CFR 3.4% figure causes horror and was meaningless.
He proved this clinically and @WHO had to publish his paper in Oct 2020.
His results #Covid19 IRF 0.23% and 0.05% for those below 70.

A new study on #COVID19 and pregnancy published by the #CDC reports premature births were 25% more likely in patients with #COVID and 300% more likely in those with #coronavirus symptoms.…
The researchers looked at medical data on nearly 600 hospital patients between March and mid-August who both tested positive for #COVID and were pregnant.
10 patients experienced miscarriage or stillbirth, but the report noted that it "likely underestimates the percentage of pregnancy losses that occur among women with COVID-19." Five of the pregnancy losses occurred after 20 weeks into the pregnancy.

#Covid_19 y transmisión por el aire
No es ninguna novedad
Ya en abril @naturepublica esta joya sobre transmisión en lugares contaminados y poco ventilados
De ahí que insistamos:
1️⃣Usa mascarilla
2️⃣Evita los lugares cerrados
3️⃣Evita contacto >15'
#Hilo… Image
Hay algún dato más en #JAMA… y tiene que tiene que ver con la lógica. El tamaño de las gotas es un continuo, por tanto parece lógico que su suspensión en el aire sea variable
#Mascarilla y #distancia Image
La @opsoms dice que se transmite en aerosol ¿Qué cambios hay? NINGUNO
El virus puede llegar 7-8 m con un fuerte estornudo.
La diferencia entre las gotitas d saliva y aerosol puede parecer puramente académica: Está en las dimensiones de las esferas d saliva q transportan el virus Image
