SYSTEMIC FAILURE REPORT CARD

2+ years into #COVID19 ,

which we have all suffered through collectively and hugely,

institutions are failing monstrously,

at protecting children,

whom you take more care with,

not less.

What’s changed?

Is it milder?

No

Can kids <5 get a 💉?

No

Boosters 5-11?

No

Can you still get #LongCovidKids even if 💉?

Yes

=need more protections
So do we still need to prevent

transmission & infection

in PS & daycares

b/c more care with kids

not less

b/c #LongCovidKids

right?

Yes

“Of all the myths associated with COVID-19, 1 of the earliest was that the virus is harmless for children”

Our thoughts on this somber day:

One million dead from COVID is a monumental tragedy, and there is nothing normal about it. Our thoughts are with the millions of people across the country who have lost loved ones over the past two years. 1/3
We should be mourning and working collectively to honor those who passed by preventing more illness and death. Instead, our leaders have largely abandoned the vulnerable and stopped trying to contain this disease.

We call on @NYCMayor , @GovKathyHochul & @POTUS to
2/3
…to reinstate basic protection measures like the indoor mask mandate, vaccine and ventilation requirements in public spaces.

We also call on Congress to ensure funding for free testing, treatment and research into the long term impacts of COVID. 3/3

while trying to protect your kids & selves

from mass re/infection

with a highly transmissible airborne virus

that can kill & disable them & you…

The more I think about airlines abruptly allowing mask removal w/o warning—mid-flight for many—the angrier I get. People who are #immunocompromised had no choice not to travel or to upgrade their protection at that point. Some will go on to die. As an oncologist, I am enraged.
If you haven’t had #cancer or been a caregiver to someone with it, you don’t know how much people endure. I’m a breast oncologist. Our patients have breasts amputated, lose their fertility, go bald, risk nerve damage, infection, & more from chemo, because they want to live.
The fact that the airlines made a corporate decision to drop masks w/o warning—any airline could’ve chosen to give crew/passengers hrs or days of notice—disgusts me. For an industry that prides itself on safety, this is a fail.

The stain of the forced #masking of children will forever live on as an unparalleled and unequivocal moral abomination. A society that mainstreams institutionalized child abuse is a society that does not deserve to exist

Important to return to policy decisions & their #publichealth impact. @mayorbowser lifted the #maskmandate for DC on 11/22/21, despite many incl me (see below) begging her not to. It was restored 4w later on 12/21/21. Too late. Cases of #COVID19 in DC 🚀 3300% since Thanksgiving.
I truly hate being right about this. We are all tired of masks, but aren’t we are all MORE tired of this #pandemic? Whether or not anyone is “willing to let” #COVID19 control their life, if they were ticketed on one of the >3K US flights canceled over Xmas wknd due to #Omicron
If their kid is being taught by different substitute teachers every few wks in mult classes because teachers are out sick or home with their own sick or quarantined kids, if their small business goes under because #Omicron interrupts supply chains & they can’t fulfill orders…

🧵I have to say it: Christmas break is going to be bad. I'm watching confirmed #COVID19 cases⬆️ exponentially at our highly-#vaccinated school w/ a #MaskMandate & HEPA filters in every class. Make a plan now for how you'll handle Xmas & #quarantine when someone gets #Omicron.
2/ Think about how you can create a separate space for the person(s) infected. Remember #OmicronIsAirborne. Pick a rm w/ windows to open & its own door if your home allows. Today put a fan there that can be used to improve air exchange. Put a 🌡️, an O2 sat monitor, good masks.
3/ Go get a MERV13 filter for your HVAC at Home Depot or Lowe's or online. While here, get the stuff to build a simple, inexpensive, highly-effective Corsi-Rosenthal box. You can see what this is here. Build it now so it's ready.

🧵It is now clear that we are going to have to get people to #MaskUp to get thru winter without US health care system collapse. #Omicron is way too contagious. #VaccinesWork & #GetBoosted, but they will not be enough on their own. So this thread is for people who hate masks:
2/X: If you hate masks because the ear loops make your ears sore, google "ear savers." That's the term I've seen used for various products that spare your ears w/ masks. Examples in pics, but if you can sew on a button, make some. What else are you gonna do in #quarantine?
3/X: You can get a beanie, headband, baseball cap, head scarf, whatever & attach button or hooks of any kind that you can get from any sewing store or online, & attach your mask loops to that. Ear pain solved! It's important to have a snug fit so try diff distances.

I know personally 3 people receiving monoclonal antibodies this evening. All have had 3 doses of #COVID19 #vaccine or prior infection + 2 doses of vaccine. All are careful. They all have risk factors, but all are pretty symptomatic. Jan is gonna be…rough. #MaskUp. #Omicron
Tweet 2: A lot of people seem to be panicking based on this anecdote. Panic is NOT productive. Instead you need to calmly plan & act to reduce your risk. These are some effective things you can do right now:
👉Upgrade your masks. No more cloth alone. Best is N95/KN95/KF94...
Tweet 3: As an alternative to N95/KN95/KF94, if you can't tolerate those or don't have them, I rec a surgical mask (ASTM level 3, 3-ply is great) w/ cloth mask over it. Read this: scientificamerican.com/article/why-we…. The non-profit @projectn95 has vetted, affordable PPE including masks.

For the safety of the staff & students, vaccination has been made mandatory for teachers/staff. Only fully vaccinated staff will be allowed in premises. School transport operators also must be fully vaccinated. #SafeSchools #VaccineMandate

Several counties in Colorado put a #MaskMandate order into effect starting today: cpr.org/2021/11/23/den…
It's a great time to remind people that masks aren't all the same. Any mask is more effective than no mask, but better fit & filtration quality upgrades protection.
Short 🧵
2/ There are so many great articles & resources on choosing a good mask, I picked just a few examples.
This article by @yeahyeahyasmin in @TheAtlantic is a great discussion of the need to wear #BetterMasks:
