Peer-reviewed paper out today! Our research created induced pluripotent stem cells from bats, revealing an unusual entanglement between bats & viruses. Provides new insights into bat biology & virus-host relationships. #batstemcells #viralbiology @CellCellPress @IcahnMountSinai
Bats have fascinated humans for centuries, but how they tolerate viruses remains a mystery. We investigate evolutionary adaptations of bats to deal with viral infections. #batimmunesystem #viralpathogens Photo: Daniel Whitby 2/ Image

Gestern wurden mittels #FOIA neue Mails veröffentlicht.

Sie bieten Aufschluss darüber, wie und warum es im Februar 20 dazu kam, die #LabLeak -Theory öffentlich zu desavouieren und fortan als VT zu delegitimieren.



Die Korrespondenz umschließt den Zeitraum von Jan bis Jul 20.

Von Interesse ist hier ausschließlich der E-Mail-Verkehr im Feb 20, der schließlich in u.s. Publikation in @Nature mündete.

Daran waren mehrere der Korrespondenzpartner beteiligt.…

Die Protagonisten dieses E-Mail-Verkehrs sind:

Anthony #Fauci (NIH/NIAID), @JeremyFarrar (Wellcome Trust), @K_G_Andersen (Scripps), @edwardcholmes (UoS), Francis Collins (NIH)

Ferner @MarionKoopmans (EUR), @c_drosten (Charité), Andrew #Rambaut (UoE) und Ron #Fouchier (EUR).

I agree—“most likely we will not be better prepared than we were in 2020” said @Karl_Lauterbach, 🇩🇪 health minister. ➡️“It’s only a matter of time until #climatechange makes more of these outbreaks become big enough that they become #pandemics”. Sobering.…
2) We are in a “time when climate change is increasing the threat of infectious disease outbreaks. As wildlife habitats disappear, animals are moving closer to each other and to humans, interacting in new ways that create more opportunities for viruses to jump between species.”
3) the G7 has set up a PACT FOR PANDEMIC READINESS of $1.5 billion a year. The World Bank has set up a fund for the pact of roughly $1.5 billion per year, which is a minor investment compared to the expenses associated with a pandemic, @Karl_Lauterbach said.

A few reflections on and highlights from Preventable by @devisridhar #Covid19 #pandemics #globalhealth Image
Preventable is a #mustread. A clear, fast-moving time travel through the past years of #Covid19.
Gone into print in August 2021, the book is a reminder of harrowing images (and for many very real personal experiences and losses). I sadly think many of these have already been forgotten, just a few months later. Image

In the past few days @sd270 and I have been frantically analysing the data we got from @ecfr latest poll on European perceptions of French diplomatic leadership. Unroll 🧵for an insight on our main findings (1/10)
European citizens want more cooperation on #security and expect the EU to provide it (2/10) #ECFRdata
Europeans are disillusioned with how the global system of international cooperation is handling today’s challenges. 71% believe that the system is not working on #climatechange. (3/10) #ECFRdata

Our new polling shows: the steps taken at EU level since the #RussianInvasionOfUkraine seem to be the minimum the European public expects. Europeans are calling for deeper long-term cooperation on #security matters at EU level. | A thread👇 (1/9)…
Europeans are disillusioned with how the global system of international cooperation is handling today’s challenges. 71% believe that the system is not working on #climatechange. (2/9) #ECFRdata
Confidence in national political systems is at a low ebb across Europe, with a majority of Europeans (58%) holding the view that ordinary voters have almost “no impact” on today’s politics. 🇪🇺 But support for EU institutions, however, remains high! (3/9) #ECFRdata

Feb 23 2022: "#WHO facilitates 194 member states to introduce digital #vaccination certificates... WHO will make it easier for its member states to introduce digital vaccination certificates in the future... It is intended to serve as a standard procedure..." #DigitalID
"#WHO is therefore supporting member states in building national & regional trust networks & verification technology. The WHO's gateway service also serves as a bridge between regional systems. It can also be used as part of future #vaccination campaigns..."

"Digitization keeps the world running. Digital #vaccination certificates like the EU's are key to this...The gateway will interact w/ other parts of the system already developed by WHO...This will also give hints for regional & national setups to be followed by the implementers."

We watched "Don't Look Up" last night -- dumb movie, but convinced me not to hold back inconvenient truths.
So here goes.
#Greenland The Danish Meteorological Institute says huge warming there is linked to #ClimateChange .
How much "warming?"
- The capital Nuuk hit 55 F this week -- average temp for this time = 22.5 F
- Further north in Qaanaaq temp topped 46 F -- normal is -4.2 F.
70% of Earth's freshwater is frozen, and #Greenland is the 2nd largest block of ice after #Antarctica. If it were to fully melt...

If you have been obsessing over the origins of #SARSCoV2 -- including the "lab leak theory" -- you need to read this very important new paper:…
It's written by scientists whose life work is figuring out where viruses come from.
2/ They conclude:
"there is a substantial body of scientific evidence supporting a zoonotic origin for
#SARSCoV2. While the possibility of a laboratory accident cannot be entirely dismissed...this conduit for emergence is highly unlikely relative to the
"...& repeated human-animal contacts that occur routinely in the wildlife trade. Failure to investigate the zoonotic origin thru collaborative & carefully coordinated studies wld leave the world vulnerable to future #pandemics arising frm the same" animal/human interactions.

1/ "The Russian health authorities also tested about 200 of the people involved in the cleanup of the farm in #Astrakhan, using nasal swabs and later blood tests for antibodies. They reported that for the first time, #H5N8 had jumped to people."
2/ "Seven of the workers appeared to have been infected with the virus, although none of them became ill. Only one of those seven cases, however, was confirmed by genetically sequencing the virus."
