In its place, the new National Institute for Health Protection will take over the work that has already been set motion to tackle #COVID-19. Set to be modelled on Germany’s Robert #Koch Institute, the country’s own organisation dealing with pandemic response,
it is now at the forefront of the United Kingdom’s handling of what many predict to be a brutal second wave. However, unlike the presidents of the Robert Koch Institute, who are microbiologists and specialists in infectious epidemiology respectively,

Covid-19: Social Murder, they wrote—elected, unaccountable, and unrepentant

BMJ 2021; 372 doi:… (Published 04 February 2021)

What went wrong in the global governance of #covid-19?
After two million deaths, we must have redress for mishandling the #pandemic
Murder is an emotive word. In law, it requires premeditation. Death must be deemed to be unlawful. How could “murder” apply to failures of a pandemic response?
Perhaps it can’t, and never will, but it is worth considering. When #politicians and #experts say that they are willing to allow tens of thousands of premature deaths for the sake of population immunity or in the hope of propping up the economy,

At least 122,000 #NHS staff now have long COVID. And while #NHS staff were unprotected, #PPE contracts were being handed out by government ministers to “#VIPs” and #associates, some of whom had no experience in supplying #medical equipment.
Why didn’t we have the #PPE we needed?
In 2016, a simulation exercise called Exercise #Cygnus was carried out to test how the UK would perform if a #pandemic struck. The report wasn’t published at the time, but after mounting pressure it was published in October 2020.
It revealed that there had been gaping holes in the #government’s pandemic preparedness.
The #Cygnus report had recommended that a single health body be set up, called a “Pandemic Concept of Operations” to help to avoid chaos in a real pandemic. This wasn’t set up.

If #HealthCare positions itself as public priority number one during a #pandemic, then it goes without saying #nurses in fact perform a critical and central role in delivering said #health care. #NursesWeek2021 #NursesWeek #NursesDay #NursesMonth #Nursing #NurseTwitter #Nurse
By not only advocating for #HealthPromotion in general, but by also educating #patients directly and the public at large of the preventive measures necessary to avoid illness and injury, it's not an exaggeration to call #nurses out as #noble..
...or, at the very least their selfless #professional #nursing pursuits can be considered as such. Conjoined with providing actual #MedicalCare AND assisting with #rehabilitation AND providing emotional & psychological #support AND...

"I had a discussion with a #medical doctor who expressed shock at some combinations of drugs bring used for high #bloodpressure. He was of the opinion that some of them affect the #potency or libido (sexual drive) of #men." Dr Olumide Okuneye (CoachMide)

#Family #Motivation #Sex
I have been bothered. I am sure you will be a bit bothered as well. Over the past few years, many people have died. However the trend has been that so many of the deaths are blood pressure related!
Dr Olumide Okuneye (CoachMide)

#Health #tuesdaymotivations
What is more sad is the fact that the #male gender is the one mostly affected.

In my interaction with friends and all, I have also seen that high #blood pressure seem to be rampart among the male gender too and with less care sometimes has sent many #men to early graves

New #UK science body could be used as ‘cover for cronyism’
Advanced Research & Innovation Agency will be exempt from existing procurement rules for ‘maximum flexibility’, says #government
Kate Bingham of the UK Vaccine Taskforce, cited by business secretary Kwasi Kwarteng
as a model for Aria.
A new £800m #government #science and #defence research agency will be exempt from existing procurement rules, prompting warnings from #Labour that it could be used as “cover for #cronyism”.
Originally the brainchild of Dominic #Cummings,
the Advanced Research & Innovation Agency (#Aria) will be more lightly regulated than a normal #government body.
A press notice released to accompany the publication of the bill needed to set up the body said it would imitate the long-established #US agency #Darpa,

#lka #srilanka #murder
without checking previous history of medications consumed causing him to have a serious fit and cause hyper activity. Ryan was not attended by any of the staff on duty even at the helpless cry of his girlfriend asking for help who stayed with him while at hospital.(2)
Ryan encountered an episode of behaviour and paranoia causing him to seek an escape from the ward attempting to climb out of a toilet window in his room on 10th floor that eventually led to his fall to the 5th floor leading to his death.(3)

Kalau pemilihan Ketua IA ITB yg dikedepankan soal bersih2 HTI, FPI, PKI.. ini sama saja dengan mengajak alumni melihat masa lalu. Mundur ke belakang. 👎

Masalah yg kita hadapi jauh lbh besar. Visi harus jauh ke depan, inovatif, kolaborasi, sains, teknologi, humaniora. 👍
Kalau yg dikedepankan soal paham2, maka hasilnya spt sebelumnya, keberadaan Salman ITB pun dipertanyakan oleh 1976 alumni.

Kalau visioner dan kolaborasi yg jd prinsip, maka kerja bersama spt antara @Sinergi_IAITB dan @salmanitb spt peduli bencana ini hasilnya.

Lihat bedanya?
Saya belum menentukan akan memilih siapa. Tapi saya punya kriteria:
- harus independen dan selesai dengan dirinya, tidak punya bos yg bisa mempengaruhi sikapnya
- bisa mengharmonikan kembali alumni
- punya visi kemajuan yg jauh ke depan, dg sains, teknologi, humaniora dan agama

I just spit into a tube for my employer. So my keycard would be "unlocked" and I could get into my very own office. Where my property has been for very many months. Now yeah, I guess #COVID19 means this is just what #workers do now. But here are #disability implications:
-- my spit, which has my DNA of course, is now a QR code
-- my employer now has access to my DNA
-- my employer now knows I'm on #opiates
-- my employer now knows I'm on #Lexapro
-- my employer now knows things about me that I don't even know about me b/c I've never given DNA
In return for this enormous amount of data I've just given my employer, what do I get? Access to my property, that is, my #poetry books, my #journals, my mementos from across a decade & etc

#IndianArmy #KhariyatPatrol

#IndianArmy has always come to the rescue of the people of #Kashmir whenever they needed it the most.
Khariyat Patrol is one such noble initiative by #IndianAmry to help those in need in the far flung areas of #Kashmir.
The Patrol party consists of some men with one medical assistant. The basic concept behind this party is to reach out to the remotest areas on foot where people don’t get even basic #medical facilities and provide them medical assistance & other help.
#IndianArmy #Kashmir
These #KhariyatPatrols are a lifesaver for these people living in those remote areas where government facilities such as roads, electricity, medical facilities are hard to come by because of remoteness and difficult terrain.

I would contest this & say that if going into the #Medical profession & taking the Hippocrates oath to serve the sick regardless of personal gain does not suit a student , he/she has no business studying medicine.
That again has to be handled by the govt in a an amicable manner by building & providing proper facilities & salaries.
The student shave to be flexible in their demands as well. You cannot expect a District health center to look like Medanta Gurgaon.
Again something the government must ensure, possibly by facilitating education loans with a moratorium on mandatory payment while in the initial ten years of government service .

How the Tories normalised corruption – report

In the past, corruption brought down politicians. But today, it’s a business model.
T.J. Coles by T.J. Coles

Corruption used to be scandalous. Then it became par for the course:
the #Expenses Scandal (2009), LIBOR (2012), the #Panama Papers (2016), FinCEN (2020) etcetera.

But this time, it’s different. We’re in a #pandemic and lives are at stake. Instead of awarding contracts to experienced and reliable public companies,
the #Tory #government is looting the #Treasury and awarding its donors. It is doing so with almost no accountability or oversight. Tory-linked corporations

In 2009, #Labour established a #PPE stockpiling system, but the #Tories left it to rot.

Docs are ROCs: A simple fix for a methodologically indefensible practice in medical AI studies.

Widely used methods to compare doctors to #AI models systematically underestimate doctors, making the AI look better than it is! We propose a solution.…

The most common method to estimate average human performance in #medical AI is to average sensitivity and specificity as if they are independent. They aren't though - they are inversely correlated on a curve.

The average points will *always* be inside the curve.

The only solution currently is to force doctors to rate images using confidence scores. While this works well in the few tasks where these scales are used in clinical practice, what does it mean to say you are 6/10 confident that there is a lung nodule?
