Here's what that means for health coverage:…
2/ And here's what the end of the #PublicHealthEmergency (#PHE) -- combined with the expected depletion of the federal supply of COVID vax, tests, treatments -- means for costs of and access to pandemic-related care… @jenkatesdc @joshmich @KFF
3/ Of course #COVID is still here, even when the #PublicHealthEmergency ends.
We estimated COVID was on track to be the 3rd leading cause of death in 2022, for the 3rd year in a row.
U.S. life expectancy has taken a bigger hit than peer countries.…

With reports suggesting that the administration may soon end the public health emergency (PHE) declaration for #Mpox, I thought I’d do a little review of the #PHE itself 🧵(1/x)
Here's the news report on this:…)
Most people probably became familiar with the PHE declaration when first declared for #COVID in January 2020. It has been an important tool in the nation’s response to COVID and its end will have significant implications, as we explore here. (2/x)…
But the origin of the Section 319 PHE was a 1983 amendment to the PHSA. Believe it or not, the bill was introduced in April of 1983 and passed and signed into law by July of that year! (the good old days?) (3/x)…

During the COVID #PublicHealthEmergency, Texans with Medicaid have kept their coverage & Texas has received an extra $6 billion in federal Medicaid funds. This has been good for Texas. When the #PHE ends (sometime after Oct 13), HHSC will face the huge task of renewing everyone🧵
A new @HHS_ASPE report shows nearly 3 of 4 kids who’ll lose Medicaid at the end of the COVID #PHE will STILL BE ELIGIBLE. They'll lose coverage due to administrative barriers in the renewal process. Great report summary from @GeorgetownCCF.…
People of color will disproportionately lose Medicaid coverage despite remaining eligible. Nationally, 64% of Latinos and 40% of Black non-Latinos who lose coverage will still qualify for Medicaid compared to only 17% of White non-Latinos.

There are many layers to the #Covid19UK human catastrophe but IMO it’s all DELIBERATE @mrjamesob

Not even @BorisJohnson is so ignorant that he can’t understand the seriousness of what is currently unfolding.

The crux is - HE WANTS IT TO HAPPEN!

@sajidjavid @JonAshworth
If you were looking for the perfect foil for the #BrexitShambles & #NHSPrivatisation in one fell swoop AND you wanted to divert attention from the cronyism & corruption being uncovered every single day….you’d create as much chaos, fear & desperation as possible….
….carefully positioning your scapegoats (the EU/drs/nurses/teachers/refugees….

You’d allow #COVIDDisinformation to run riot, including from the @UKHSA (& conveniently replace #PHE), whilst churning out a #COVIDisOver narrative through a compliant media.

#2G #Herdenimmunität #Impfung #Covid #PHE
1/ Wie wirksam ist die Impfung im echten Leben? Wie häufig sind Geimpft noch Überträger beziehungsweise PCR positiv? Dazu gibt es nun exzellente systematische Daten von PHE (Public Health England). Ein Thread 👇🏻🧵
2/ Die Staatliche Agentur Public Health England (PHE) veröffentlicht regelmäßig wichtige Daten zu COVID und der Effektivität der Impfungen. Die Datentiefe ist dabei besser/systematischer als das, was wir vom RKI geliefert bekommen.
Quelle dieses Threads:…
3/ Für die Alpha Variante, welche aktuell ja nahezu keine Rolle mehr spielt, liegen folgende Daten vor:

-🇬🇧Le taux d'hospitalisation et de mortalité lié à la maladie de #COVID19 chez les moins de 50 ans entièrement vaccinés est 175 % plus élevé que celui des moins de 50 ans non vaccinés, selon les données du #PHE(Public Health England).

🇫🇷 à dérouler…
Le Covid-19 a touché de manière disproportionnée les personnes âgées et les personnes vulnérables souffrant d'autres maladies sous-jacentes, et les données montrent que le risque de décès dû au Covid-19 va de minuscule à négligeable pour les moins de 50 ans avant la disponibilité
de l'injection de Covid-19. Les dernières données de Public Health England sur le Covid-19 sont donc extrêmement préoccupantes, car elles montrent que le risque de décès dû au Covid-19 chez les personnes de moins de 50 ans augmente si elles ont été entièrement vaccinées.

The Government has instructed your GP to hand over your lifelong medical history – your GP doesn’t have a choice, but YOU DO... until 23rd June.

If you don’t want your family’s #GPdata used & sold to Hancock’s cronies, send/give this letter to your GP:…
While @NHSDigital’s #OptingOut page* says a #Type1 “can only be recorded by your GPpractice” & doesn’t even link to the form, it’s worth noting #GeneralPractice is currently the busiest it’s ever been. Why is @DHSCgovuk putting even more work onto GPs?

Decisions aren’t only made by @NHSDigital, of course -but it WILL give your data to others.

Like #CPRD, which gives it to companies to #identify specific patients’ #records; and #PHE, which gave #cancer patients’ data to a “causes of cancer” study run by a #tobacco company...

1/ Tragically I can @carolecadwalla.

From the v start of the pandemic, #PHE have made a number of decisions that have definitely NOT been in the public’s or healthcare workers’ interest & will have resulted in many more lives lost or irrevocably damaged than was necessary.
2/ Downgrading #COVID19 from the list of HCIDs was one such example.

Few HCWs doubt that the decision was based on supplies of #PPE available.
Anyone in doubt should try to watch this @BBCPanorama by Richard Bilton which is bizarrely no longer available?!
3/ @DrRCoull & I were 2 of many GPs who raised concerns last yr over the LEVEL of #PPE HCWs expected to wear when dealing directly w/ confirmed or suspected #COVID19 pts.
@drmeenalviz @ThePalpitations @DAUK_GP & @EveryDoctorUK @DrSimonHodes +others REPEATEDLY RAISED THE ISSUE

Logik zum #Öffnungsplan der #Bundesregierung
Wo, wie und wie schnell infiziert man sich mit dem #Coronavirus? Solange die Regierung Entscheidungen - magels Datenlage - ohne Evidenz trifft, solange ist es Willkür, wann welche Bereiche geöffnet und andere geschlossen bleiben #Spahn
Die Mutante #B117 erreicht in diesen Tagen -in den ersten Bundesländern- ihre #Dominanz. #R steigt zeitgleich und die #Regierung erhöht per #Öffnungsplan die #Mobilität: B117, Öffnungsplan u. gesteigerte Mobilität sind drei Faktoren die logisch #R exponentiell beeinflussen können
Zeitgleich werden #Kitas u. #Schulen geöffnet, also die Versammlungsorte, vor deren Öffnung uns Experten und Ärzte aus #Israel u. Kanada warnen. Begründet wird die #Öffnung mit "Meinungen" von Wissenschaftlern, deren #Studien -manipulierte Daten- aus #Schweden zitieren #twlz #KMK

1/ @HHSGov⁩ ⁦@SecAzar⁩ has extended the #COVID19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) declaration effective Jan. 21, 2021 for an additional 90 days.
2/ This means that all of the #telehealth and other waivers and flexibilities that have been implemented during the #PHE will remain in effect until at least April 21, 2021.
3/ As in the summary & impact table by @AmerMedicalAssn, the Consolidated Appropriations Act signed into law 12/27/20 included provisions that offset most of the 10.2% budget neutrality adjustment that was slated to take effect for Medicare-covered services provided as of 1/1/21.

#UK #employment no.s show the horrendous cost of #lockdown leapfrog and all the other government stupidity during this pan(dem)ic.
Toll on self-employed getting on for 1 in 10
Total, economy-wide hours worked off 9.1%

#COVID19(33) #ONS
#private sector #jobs down 422k (-378k ex rail worker shift). Public sector up 143k (+99k ex-rail).

Of the 280k total, 7 out of 8 lost by those starting out in life, 16-24 yo; within which more than 1 in 4 of 16-17 yo jobs gone, "POOF!!"
#redundancies have more than tripled from 106k to 370k, while #vacancies have fallen from 848k to 547k.

This means that everyone newly #unemployed now has 1.5 openings to chase versus 7.7 a year ago. Good luck with THAT!

Piecing together what we know of the ‘new #variant’. This has been confirmed by COG-UK ( and PHE ( as a lineage of #SARSCoV2 carrying a set of mutations including #N501Y, found in the #spike receptor binding domain.
#PHE reports suggest that #SARSCoV2 carrying this variant(s) have been observed at high frequency in recent times in the South of England. At the moment there is no evidence this #variant spreads any faster or any slower. This simply hasn’t been tested yet (and of course will be)
This variant is found in an expanding outbreak but may be going up in frequency just by chance – we always have to disentangle these forces. Viruses mutate (actually #SARSCoV2 a bit slower than many viruses) and the presence of mutations in of themselves is not a cause for alarm.

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.

Timely #ContactTracing does matter fighting #COVID19. In a new paper (➡️ we study a bizarre #Excel error in England that caused 16k cases to NOT be contact traced. We econometrically can link this blunder to ~ 120k new cases & 1.5k deaths...🧵⬇️1/N
Studying non-pharmaceutical interventions to fight #COVID19 is HARD because we hardly ever isolate specific individual policies as often many measures are taken together (lockdowns, school closures, masks,...). For #ContractTracing we also have mostly correlational evidence...2/N
Enter the English Test&Trace system hastily built on, what appears to be a set of XLS spreadsheets giving us a consequential natural experiment. On Oct 4, PHE announced that ~ 16k #COVID19 cases were not correctly reported resulting in a large jump in reported cases.. 3/N

Setting aside for the moment the impact on morale of the hardworking public health workforce, five criteria against which to judge SoS speech on Public Health. #PHE
Criterion 1: Will the proposed change break down barriers within public health and between public health and the NHS and other stakeholders? #PHE
Criterion 2: Will the changes reverse the years of funding cuts in public health and transfer money from private sector contracts to the public health system? #PHE

PHS to be replaced with new body run by Dido Harding

SAGE replaced with #JointBiosecurityCentre run by Clare Gardiner (GCHQ)

Behavioural Insights Team now run by Rachel Coyle (MOD)

NHSX joint-run by Palantir. Lord Guthrie ex-head of UK armed forces is a shareholder in Palantir
Despite apparent attempts to brush their role under the carpet, the Behavioural Insights Team (Nudge Unit) seems to play a in central part in the govt’s #COVID19 response.

Why has the Nudge Unit & JBC both appointed senior cyber security experts as heads?
Despite attempts to down play their role, the Behavioural Insights Team (‘Nudge Unit’) apparently plays a central part in the govt’s #COVID19 response.

But why has the Nudge Unit & the #JBC both appointed senior military cyber security experts as heads?

#UK#Conservative’ (LOL) govt to provide fatties with an app (because NO-ONE in the private sector offers the like!); will have GPs prescribe bikes for which ministers have pledged to tear up the streets. Onerous new labelling, advertising, selling regulations to follow...
...all, of course, in the name of #COVID19(84) which -unlike ANY other disease in the history of man- carries off more people who are already -er- ‘unhealthy’ (the clue’s in the name).

More intrusion. More bureaucracy. More business costs. Less freedom...
We need to tell reformed Bunter, #BorisJohnson, to butt out and start a slogan declaring “Protect the People FROM the #NHS” (and #PHE)

PS Pot meet Kettle: have you ever noticed how svelte your average public health worker tends to be???

This ‘slippery slope’ is now a black run!

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

It brings me great joy that alternative energy is obliterating O&G stocks, performance-wise (at least in the UK micro-cap space in which I operate).

My key holding in the sector (and 2nd largest in my entire PF) is #SAE @simecatlantis at 11p average. But it's brilliant... 1/4 see the likes of #ITM #AFC #PHE #EQT achieving dizzying valuations.

The more that retail buys O&G on the open market, the greater the valuations these Cos can maintain, and thus the easier it is for them to raise capital.

My belief (or rather, hope!) is that retail...2/4
...will continue to shift into alt. energy (including associated infrastructure, partic. battery metals), thus starving micro-cap oilies of capital. This in turn will reduce the pool of discoveries that majors draw on to replenish their own reserves (besides in-house expl.)… 3/4

So @peston roasted for Q’s re: #COVID #antibodytest and told tests unreliable until 28days by #PHE #DCMO - this was NOT correct.
This paper from @nature published 2 days ago shows 50% antibody +ve at 7days from symptom onset & all by 2 weeks 1/x
The dogmatic resistance to #antibodytest by PHE & the failure of their experts to be properly briefed about emerging evidence is potentially damaging. #COVID19 Patients presenting to hospital have typically had symptoms for several days & may therefore be #antibodytest +ve 2/x
...& the test may therefore have some utility- even in an intensive care setting where PCR tests may also be (false) negative - antibody positive test results would moderate clinical decision making in latter clinical stages (>1-2weeks) 3/x
