Sur les cas de #variole #simesque (#MPXV) détectés de par le monde, quelques réflexions d'épidémiologie, de modélisation et d'évolution de l'équipe.

Car, pour le moment, ce sont surtout les #génomes viraux qui apportent des indications !

Sans entrer dans les détails, ces infections sont causées par un (gros) #virus à #ADN.

Pour des détails cliniques et thérapeutiques, @MarcGozlan a un post très détaillé en #acceslibre 👇

Les épidémies de #MPXV sont beaucoup étudiées par les modélisateurs car elles ont, habituellement, un #R0<1. Autrement dit, on s'attend à ce qu'elles régressent vite.

Notre collègue @jlloydsmith les a beaucoup analysées :

1- #Omicron #BA.2 What about thinking beyond RBD-ACE2 interactions?
Looking at the mutations that differentiate BA.1 and BA.2, there are some interesting things to mention. @flodebarre @DecrolyE @SFV_France
2- First of all, we will never thank enough #GISAID.org, and their fellows #Nextstrain.org and #Outbreak.info for their incredible work and follow-up. Without you, I don't want to imagine how bigger would be the already big mess...
3- As rightly pointed by @firefoxx66 , BA.2 does dot originates from BA.1. Very simple to check: BA.2 could not have perfectly "re-invented" deleted amino acids in its Spike. They diverged a while ago from their parent Omicron.

1/ I loved writing this new @ASMicrobiology article. I talked to Dr. Derick Kimathi (@Toinoti, medical researcher in Kenya), about using fractional doses of yellow fever #vaccine. I hope you find this as interesting as I did #IDtwitter #epitwitter

2 / This is a follow up article to the one I wrote back in May that briefly detailed the history of #YellowFever in the United States, and how the development of #diagnostics for the disease as well as modern research stemmed from that #history.
asm.org/Articles/2021/…
3/ The #YellowFever #outbreak that started in Angola in 2015 ravaged major cities like Luanda & Kinshasa, and resulted in 11 imported cases in China - a country that harbors the mosquito that spreads the yellow fever virus and has a population immunologically naïve to YF.

1/5 Which #TravelRestrictions were most effective to contain the spread of #COVID19?🌍New systematic review out now in the Journal of Infection (pre-proof):

➡️doi.org/gp4r

@rki_de @CBcheraoui @Elie__Akl @SPARK_AUB @biainfection

#RKIinternational
2/5 In 2020, most countries switched from total to targeted #border closures followed by mandatory #quarantine and #screening of #travelers.
3/5 Evidence suggests: border closures may reduce the number of #COVID19 cases, disrupt disease spread across countries/between regions & slow #outbreak progression.

Early implementation, in combination with measures to reduce #transmission rates, likely enhances these effects.

This is really irresponsible. Over 125 adults & youth from a Galveston County #Texas church camp event have tested positive for COVID.

The Clear Creek Community Church youth ministry camp was held at a facility near Giddings, Texas, last month. abc13.com/clear-creek-co… Image
"Additionally, hundreds more were exposed to COVID-19 at camp. And hundreds of others were likely exposed when infected people returned home from camp. We seek to remain in contact with those impacted"

Important!
So for the most original, most comprehensive #timeline of the #CCPVirus #COVID19 #outbreak , with evidence all from Chinese media(some were already deleted) and other reliable sources. Just evidence, no conspiracy.
jenniferzengblog.com/home/2021/6/10…
A group of programmers collected and edited this, with all due seriousness. Then some other people who care about the future of humanity translated it into English, in a hope that this can be translated into other languages too.
Archived original documents are all provided inside this.
I'd say this is a VERY important contribution to the world. And I am honored to be trusted with it and chosen to publish it.
Please do read and spread it!

2/3 There is probably no easier setting for doing an #outbreak investigation than a #choir. @MakingMusic_UK & others have well developed risk assessments. Ask @BarbaraEifler Around 300k people sing weekly - more than football (more women tho....)

THREAD - What happened at the Huanan #seafood market?

The @WHO report is quite clear on this point: #SARSCoV2 might have jumped from a wild animal sold in this market and maybe other markets in #Wuhan. But what do we know exactly? 1/15

#originsofSARSCoV2 Image
After all this time, the Huanan seafood market still remains the main suspect for a simple reason: most of the early cases had visited at least one market in Wuhan city, and several of them visited the Huanan market. 2/15 Image
According to the report, 10,000 people visited this place every day, making it a perfect setting for an #outbreak. One might argue: what about the cases without market exposure? Good question! 3/15

While California is making significant progress in the fight against the #COVID_19 pandemic, the state still has a long way to go before returning to life as it was before the pandemic hit.

Vaccines will help but maybe not in the way you might think.

latimes.com/projects/post-…
The ongoing vaccine rollout has raised hopes for some semblance of normalcy in the near future.

But experts caution that the pandemic may continue for months and the virus may never fully be eradicated.

latimes.com/projects/post-…
Vaccines can't do it all, experts say.

Three #coronairus vaccines were granted emergency use authorization because, in clinical trials, they greatly reduced the risk of illness, hospitalizations and deaths.

1/ Q: Can I go back to my indoor #fitness classes? 🚴‍♀️

A: The #NerdyGirls LOVE your efforts to stay fit 💪, but best to hang on to those online or outdoor workouts a bit longer.

TL;DR: Heavy breathing, no masks, and indoors is the perfect recipe for #SARSCoV2 #transmission.
2/ A recent U.S. @CDCgov report described an #outbreak linked to an unnamed fitness facility in #Chicago in which *55 out of 81* attendees of an indoor high-intensity fitness class in Chicago were infected over the course of a week in August 2020.
3/ ❓What precautions were being taken?

➡️ The classes were at <25% capacity, with masks 😷, temperature & symptom checks required at entry. 🤒 Exercise mats were spaced 6 feet/2 meters apart. ↔️

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.

🚨BREAKING: on the same February day that Trump falsely claimed the #coronavirus was “very much under control,” aides told the Hoover Institution the #outbreak could prove worse than publicly revealed, giving wealthy donors an early warning to SELL OFF.🤬

Kudlow revealed the #coronavirus was “contained in the US to date, but now we just don’t know,” per a document from a hedge fund consultant who attended the briefings: “What struck me,” was that nearly every official raised the virus “as a point of concern, totally unprovoked.”🧐

#Germany #Bodenkirchen #Bayern #Coronavirus #OUTBREAK #SUPERSPREADER

After an illegal party with up to 150 guests in Bodenkirchen, Lower Bavaria, 20 people have already tested positive for the corona virus.
The Landshut district office announced on Wednesday that these are women and men between 25 and 32 years of age. The health department is trying to track down other party guests and break chains of infection.
Three siblings had invited to the party declared as "Oktoberfest" in the machine hall of a farm. At least 120, possibly 150 people celebrated and danced to draft beer and a live band on October 3rd, it said.

woke up today with a cough, sore throat, and shortness of breath. I decided pretty quickly that I needed to do the responsible thing and get a #COVID test.

Here is the story of how tumultuous it is to try to do this through @umich University Health Service. #thread 🧵 (1/n)
A lot of people had told me to just go to Walgreens in Ypsi, or just go to urgent care, but without a car, the UHS was my only feasible option. I heard they won’t test you unless you have symptoms, but i DID have symptoms, so it wouldn’t be a problem. right? (2/n)
wrong! I start by calling UHS, the robot on the phone tells me that if i am experiencing COVID symptoms I have to fill out a questionnaire on the UHS website.

The UHS website tells me if i have COVID symptoms, i have to call UHS right away.

so.... now what? (3/n)

#Germany #Berlin #Coronavirus #OUTBREAK

More than 30 people were infected at a wedding party in Berlin last week. Accordingly, the outbreak is one of the largest single outbreaks in the capital for several weeks.
The Senate Health Administration said that on September 21, several hundred people celebrated together in the Tempelhofer Festsaal. An exact number of infected people could not be named,
the information apparently fluctuates between 31 and 33 people who have previously tested positive. A spokesman for Health Senator Dilek Kalayci (SPD) announced that many of the infected were now being contacted by the Neukölln health department because they lived there.
