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

[Thread] #EquitableAccess to #COVID19 #vaccines

Brilliant webinar today by @MSF_access & @DNDi on @wto #TRIPSwaiver & implications for #Africa, with @SpringGombe, Mustaqeem De Gama, Yuan Qiong Hu, Moses Mulumba, Ahmed Ogwell @laktarr001 & @MoniqueWasunna

#NoCovidMonopolies 1/17 Image
In her introductory remarks @SpringGombe asks

➡️whether the African continent will be left behind again
➡️what it will take for a public interest focused response to the pandemic
➡️what new ways of knowledge management are required to avoid past mistakes

#NoCovidMonopolies 2/17
#TRIPSwaiver seeks to temporarily waive #patent rights over #COVID19 products to facilitate increased production & manufacturing worldwide.

Need to set framework now for responses to future #pandemics & drive reform of #globalhealth for public interest.

Just finished another >90h week on hospital #GIM service in a #COVID19 pandemic. A few thoughts:
1. Hospitals are still full, but there’s a sense of reprieve, less chaos, anxiety/stress not quite so bad.

Why?

2. Front line #healthcareworkers getting vaccinated

#COVID19AB
1/n
3. Less primary COVID infections = good, but x2 parallel #pandemics now
a. Like in Summer, the collective #Mentalhealth burden is fierce. Intentional overdoses, alcohol, stress, isolation, anxiety/depression, unemployment

b. #COVID related complications: affecting every organ...
5. #publichealth measures are working, but come w sig costs to population health in other forms. #vaccines are coming, but slower than we’d all like so we must double-down on what we have for now

6. We all agree that #COVID is hard, but it’s clearly harder for some in society

BREAKING: Promoting Effectiveness And Equity As COVID-19 Vaccines And Treatment Emerge.
Today, we focus on #COVID19 #vaccines & treatment. Amidst recent news of successful vaccine trials & new treatments, we highlight key policy + regulatory issues: bit.ly/2UJBxlg (1/9)
This set of fast-track ahead-of-print journal articles kicks off with @AKesselheim of @BrighamWomens et al's paper, which explores #vaccine development, approval, and regulation as well as tradeoffs in balancing safety, efficacy, and speed: bit.ly/3pJySGM (2/9)
How successful will new #vaccines be? While more effective vaccines always lead to better outcomes, the story gets complex when you start to vary the parameters. @jasonlschwartz & @ADPaltiel from @YaleSPH w/ coauthors from @harvardmed investigate: bit.ly/33gugyj

Hurricane Marco came down to a superstorm, but its heavy rains saturated grounds all along the TX/LA/Mississippi/Alabama Gulf coastlines. With no way to soak in, water will go where gravity takes it, causing flooding. Evacuations underway as #HurricaneLaura heads towards LA.
No fooling around: #HurricaneLaura is forecast to slam Texas & Louisiana as a Category 3 tomorrow night, and then GAIN energy as it moves inland, with a NE trajectory that may head back out to sea via #NYC. Gulf coastal evacuation underway. Stay safe.

You may wonder why a writer focused on #pandemics & public health often tweets about natural disasters.🌩️🔥❄️🌪️☔️
It's all about preparedness & government responsiveness, involving overlapping systems & public health expertise. Ideally, pathogen & climate responders interact.

Cool paper detailing what body sites, cell types, symptoms #COVID-19 has been connected to thus far 👉 But one thing: everyone knows that most persistent #viral (and #bacterial) pathogens are capable of #infecting/driving an equally extensive # of #symptoms, right?
2/ For example, in this interview, Dharam Ablashi (who co-discovered the #virus HHV6) explains how HHV6 has been shown capable of contributing to #cancers, type 1 #diabetes, Hashimoto’s, #MS, HPA-axis dysregulation, ME/CFS, Alzheimer’s, neuroinflammation..microbeminded.com/2020/06/28/int…
3/ ..and that the HHV6 can survive in
#microglia, astrocytes, macrophage, neurons/nerves, #pancreatic islet cells, the lung, gut epithelial cells, the #liver etc etc etc!

1/7 „La storia mostra che le pandemie tendono a manifestarsi a ondate nei primi 2-5 anni, a mano a mano che si accumula l'immunità della popolazione (naturalmente o attraverso la vaccinazione) e quindi il numero di casi infetti tende a diminuire.
2/7 Questa osservazione è la traiettoria più probabile x SARS-CoV-2. Il prossimo futuro richiederà una nuova normalità (distanza fisica, test,quarantena, tracciamento dei contatti) che sarà necessaria per molto tempo. Mentre sono in corso ricerche cliniche e test sugli antivirali
