@DrTedros "As you know, just under three weeks ago I declared an end to #COVID19 as a public health emergency of international concern.

It was a moment of relief and reflection.

It’s encouraging to see life return to normal – to be able to hug a friend, to travel freely, and to meet…… Image
@DrTedros "But at the same time, many of us continue to carry grief in our hearts – grief over those we have lost, grief at the terrible toll the pandemic has taken on families, communities, societies and economies, and grief that it didn’t need to be this way"-@DrTedros #WHA76

@DrTedros "In 1977, Ali Maow Maalin was a 23-year-old working as a hospital cook in the port of Merca, #Somalia.

In addition to his duties in the kitchen, Maalin had worked as a vaccinator in WHO’s #smallpox eradication programme, which had hunted down the last remaining cases of smallpox……
@DrTedros "In October of that year, two children with #smallpox from a nomadic group were sent to an isolation camp near Merca. The driver who was transporting them stopped at the hospital where Maalin worked to ask for directions.

Maalin offered to accompany them. The driver asked if he……

#Gaslighting #LongCovid #MECFS

Für die, welche die Wissenschaft der chronischen Krankheit verfolgten – und die, die sie selbst erlebt hatten – war das Auftreten von #LongCovid so vorhersehbar wie der Sonnenaufgang der Morgensonne.…
Seit mehreren Jahrzehnten haben Wissenschaftler Störungen in den Körpern von Personen mit postinfektiösen Erkrankungen gefunden. Die spezifischen Signalwege sind zu zahlreich, um sie hier umfassend aufzulisten.
Studien zeigen, dass sie eine geschwächte Immunantwort aufgrund niedriger Konzentrationen virusbekämpfender natürlicher Killerzellen und eine verstärkte Entzündung umfassen, die durch erhöhte Konzentrationen von Signalchemikalien, den sogenannten Zytokinen, verursacht wird.

Partly due to propaganda and disinformation about the safety of vaccines, fewer and fewer parents are having their children vaccinated against diseases included in many national vaccination programmes. Why is this zo important?
Many countries have a national vaccination program that offers vaccinations against some of the most serious and common diseases. High vaccination coverage means a well-protected population against these diseases. With huge benefits for societies.
What does #vaccinationprogram consist of? The program provides the fastest and safest possible protection against diseases that can cause serious damage at a young or older age. It often starts with the first DTaP-IPV-Hib-HBV shot at the age of 3 months.

THREAD: #Virology: Unmasking a 100+ Year Old Lie

Everything You Think You Know About Disease Is Likely Wrong.

We Need To Base Our Understanding of Reality Upon Reality, Not Manipulation.

Everything You Think You Know About Disease Is Likely Wrong....
In order to understand the world around us as the truth about it is emerging from a 100+ year slumber, it’s going to be important to challenge ideas that have absolutely zero basis in reality.

I will start off by saying that we have been duped - ALL OF US.

Polio - is back.
We thought we had it almost eliminated but were not able to go the final mile in countries like Afghanistan, Nigeria ridden by conflict
Just to remind ourselves, Polio is this horrible disease that can leave people paralyzed for life. Recently one of the last people died who was in an iron lung due to Polio, that is paralyzed so the he was unable to breath on his own.
In 2016 we were at 46 cases globally and it was a matter of walking the final it is no longer
And it will again be a matter of equity in access to vaccines and communication about the individual and population health benefit.

1/5 Interesting anecdote on #monkeypox. Someone I know through works in a local hospital, in housekeeping/environmental services.
2/5 She cleaned a #monkeypox positive patient's room without personal protective equipment (PPE) because her colleagues thought it was "no big deal." After all, she is not a gay man or a man who sleeps with men (MSM).🤦🏿‍♀️

3/5 She contracted #monkeypox, positive test confirmed, and she showed up to a family funeral repast recently "to help out," wearing an N95 mask, nitrile gloves and a gown, with active lesions.

BREAKING—New York declared a state of emergency over #polio to boost vaccination rates amid evidence that the virus is spreading. Unvaccinated individuals who live, work, go to school or visit NYC metro area are at the highest risk of paralytic disease.…
2) New York began wastewater surveillance after an unvaccinated adult caught polio in Rockland County in July and suffered from paralysis, the first known infection in the U.S. in nearly a decade.
3) The emergency declaration will expand the network of vaccine administrators to include pharmacists, midwives and EMS workers in an effort to boost the immunization rate in areas where it has slipped.

1/7 - “As the world grapples with the reality of living with #COVID19, a rogue's gallery of deadly pathogens seems to have stepped up the attack.”
via @ejustin46…
2/7 - “#Monkeypox, a close relation of smallpox, is officially a public health emergency worldwide. The current outbreak—the first large one ever outside of Africa—has spread globally to more than 45,000 people, including more than 16,000 confirmed cases in the US.”
3/7 - “And #polio, a disease routinely referred to as "eradicated," is circulating in and around New York City and London, bringing with it the irreversible paralysis that strikes about one of 200 people infected with the disease.”

#polio ist auf dem Vormarsch.
In Ländern, wo man dachte, der Drops sei gelutscht. USA England, Israel. Eine neue Mutation breitet sich aus. Schon vor zwei Jahren begann das abgeschwächte Virus aus dem Lebendimpfstoff der Schluckimpfung auf ungeimpfte Kinder in Afrika über-
zuspringen und zu mutieren. Was von #Querdenker n als Argument gegen die Impfung missbraucht wird, ist nichts weiter als folgendes Problem: Zu wenige Kinder sind geimpft, denn diesen kann entgegen Schwurblermeinung auch das mutierte Virus nichts anhaben.

UPDATE IN INFECTIOUS DISEASES: Asked to give update in all infectious diseases (!) for UCSF COVID town hall yesterday. Couldn't do talk justice in 10 minutes but here are 4 main updates in slides
#Monkeypox outbreak epidemiology.
Major #HIV update is how far behind we have fallen in terms of HIV prevention and treatment goals over past 2 years of #COVID. UNAIDS report…
Much work to do for #HIV
Major #polio update is this infection could be eradicated as only animal reservoir is other primates but we have had setbacks due to backsliding in childhood vaccination rates during #covid

On voit avec le #Monkeypox et maintenant la #polio aux US que l’action des antivaxx n’etait pas centrée sur le #COVID19 malgré toutes leurs dénégations. On voit aussi que leur combat pour la réintégration des soignants ou pompiers nonvaxx s’inscrit dans un projet antivaxx 1/5
bien plus large que le #Covid_19. Leurs methodes sont les insultes et les menaces mais également l’inversion victimaire. Ils se plaignent eux d’être harcelés ou menacés sans jamais y apporter de preuve. On ne peut que penser au post du blog France Soir sur la harcelosphere 2/5
repris ad nauseam par toute la sphere antivaxx, article aussi vide que la pensée de ceux qui l’ont ecrit et promu. Tres peu de medecins parmi ces antivaxx. Des avocats, des pseudoscientifiques, parfois des scientifiques en rupture, et surtout des benêts qui assurent 3/5

#polio en UK y USA
-La #polio no está erradicada, Pakistán y Afganistán todavía tienen casos
-Hay dos tipos de vacunas; vivas atenuadas e inactivadas (Sabin y Salk)
-TODOS los países hasta q la erradican utilizan la vacuna oral atenuada (💧💧)
-Después cambian a la 💉inactivada
La razón de ese cambio de atenuada a inactivada:
-Los 🦠🦠de la viva/atenuada se multiplican en el intestino delgado y se eliminan por las heces (“vacunando” accidentalmente a otros)
-Pero tb algunos🦠🦠vuelven a su estado virulento y pueden hacer enfermar otras personas
¿Que pasa con esas personas infectadas con 🦠polio derivados de la vacuna atenuada oral?
-En general nada, la mayoría de infecciones son asintomáticas.
-Pero el🦠puede volverse más virulento
..y en poblaciones con niños o personas poco vacunadas de #polio puede haber casos graves

Prosegue il monitoraggio del virus della #polio a Londra e si registra un'aumento dei campioni positivi.

Offerto il vaccino a tutti i bambini londinesi.

Che succede?

a small thread
Qualche mese fa erano stati segnalati i primi sospetti aumenti di virus di Poliomielite nelle fogne di Londra. Esiste un sistema di monitoraggio che campiona le acque reflue alla ricerca di virus pericolosi.
Ne avevo parlato qui:

In pratica il virus che stiamo osservando nelle acque londinesi non è necessariamente un virus attivo proveniente da un focolaio, ma potrebbe essere il risultato della vaccinazione.
Ad oggi nessuno è testato positivo per Polio a Londra.

A thread of excerpts from a 2011 presentation by Ray Obomsawin, Ph.D. on #vaccines , their alleged elimination of infectious diseases, and #vaccine #safety
Natural immunity is the only true immunity. Everything else is an artificial attempt to cheat nature, and nature is never cheated.
Dr. Archie Kalokerinos, who worked among aboriginal peoples in Australia, authored Every Second Child as he observed the death rate among aboriginal children was nearly 50%. He discovered it was due to #vaccination

A lot of people do not understand how worrisome the #polio case in NY.

Based on what's been discussed publicly:

-the person with paralytic polio got infected in NY

-the source case in NY has not been found

-for one person to get paralytic polio, it means that 100s were infected, b/c only ~1 in 200 develop paralysis

-since case was detected in early June & weeks have gone on before vax catch-up campaign, likely means 1000s of infections cumulatively to date

-detection in wastewater further supports the fact that many have been infected & are shedding polio virus

-(injectable) polio vax works extremely well at preventing severe disease, but it does not block people from being infected & shedding virus in their feces

On Saturday, @WHO Director-General @DrTedros declared the global #monkeypox outbreak a public health emergency of international concern—what’s known as a #PHEIC.

What this means and what you need to know ↓
A #PHEIC is a global alert and call to action in response to an international health risk.

PHEICs have previously been declared for other disease outbreaks, including #COVID19, Zika, #polio, Ebola, and H1N1.

Watch @DrTedros' remarks:
Before the declaration, the DG considered factors incl. current info about the outbreak, expert recommendations, & global risk analysis.

@WHO also provided temporary recommendations to help control the spread of #monkeypox.

For the first time in nearly a decade, we have a case of #polio in an unvaccinated adult. Per CDC, ~1 in 14 US 2y olds are currently NOT fully vaxxed & thus at risk. The US polio vaccine is safe & effective. Please verify you & your kids are up to date.…
#Polio most commonly spreads via the "fecal-oral" route which usually means not washing hands after using toilet then eating (or biting nails or, for kids, thumbsucking) but may also spread via airborne route. #WashYourHands #GetVaccinated #MedTwitter…
There are no meds to treat polio, it's all prevention. Here's info from CDC about #polio, but a better use of your time would just be to ensure you/kids are fully vaxxed. The IPV vaccine is highly effective & safe, & then you can go back to not thinking about it. #VaccinesWork

[Thread] 1. SA saw its 1st confirmed #monkeypox case last week. Will there be more cases? YES. Why? The 1st case doesn’t have a travel history so he (a 30 year old man from Jhb) contracted it from someone in SA who already had it.
2. How do you get #monkeypox? Through close contact, e.g. hugging, kissing, sex, or contaminated materials, e.g. shared linen or cutlery. It’s much harder to contract monkeypox than #COVID19. The @nicd_sa's Jackie Weyer explains it in this sound clip:
3. What’s the most telling #monkeypox symptom? Blisters on your skin. The blisters don’t have to be all over your body, they can, for instance, just be on your genitals, hands or face. The @nicd_sa's Jackie Weyer explains in this sound clip:
