La dizione #Asintomatico compare più spesso in pubblicazioni scientifiche con (o senza ma con evidente riferimento a) varia ulteriore #specificazione e rivolto a soggetti #affetti (es. infezioni: #asintomatici #infetti, pazienti infetti asintomatici, casi asintomatici, ecc.) 1/14
ma #senza #manifestazioni cliniche (sintomi e segni). Tuttavia pare che il termine #asintomatico abbia anche un significato più ampio, cioè di soggetto #senza #manifestazioni cliniche il cui esatto #stato di #salute, di #affetto o meno, sia #determinabile solo con un #test. 2/14
Almeno così potrebbe sembrare dalle letture di un profano come me che ha fatto alcune ricerche. Ad es. su #PubMed sono molteplici le pubblicazioni che esplicitano che gli #asintomatici possano essere anche #non #infetti e #negativi alla diagnostica. 3/14

Growth rate is key during a disease outbreak. The rate of growth in the the total confirmed #cases in #Canada seems to be showing signs of slowing and pulling away from the continued steep trend line seen, for example, in the United States (Green). #COVID19 #coronavirus 1/25
This is a +ve sign, but still very early to tell, esp. with an est. 1M+ #Canadians having just returned from travel, and #COVID-19 #testing only targeting >severe cases (due to rationing & backlog in lab testing), we don’t have a good grasp on the level of community spread. 2/25
The number of total cases is what we want to know, but the true number of these is not known. Not by us epidemiologists, nor by any other research, governmental or reporting institution. 3/25

Partage de simulations de modèles de diffusion qui illustrent bien problème & solution du #COVIDー19 .

1/5 : #diffusion libre - profil #exponentiel - avec #population en circulation libre & contact aléatoire non contrôlé, comme en #France avant jeudi 12/3.

Src @washingtonpost
2/5 : modèle de diffusion avec création de zone de #confinement et tentative de #quarantaine forcée, comme en #Chine (Hubei).
En pratique, impossible d'isoler (à part sur un bateau) la population #COVIDー19 de la #population saine. La zone finit par devenir poreuse.

3/5 (#solution) : modèle de diffusion avec #SocialDistancing ou #DistanciationSociale pour 3/4 de la population et circulation libre d'un quart de la population.
Deux simulations dans la vidéo suivante qui montrent des charges de contamination plutôt contrôlées.

#BREAKING

#Lithuania #Vilnius

Last week #Lithuanian #parliament adopted the state #budget for 2020. The main #financial document of the #state was approved by the majority of voters.
It is sad to see how #Lithuania is #suffering without #money. Absolute #chaos – this is how they say in #Lithuania about the new budget.
So, state budget revenues are planned in the amount of 11.559 billion euros, expenses – 12.705 billion euros.
The budget deficit will amount 2.9% of the planned gross domestic product. In other words, the #Lithuanian #draft hardly met the requirements of #fiscal #discipline. The #budget #deficit for #EU member states should not exceed 3% of GDP.

National DNA Day:

🧬April 25

🧬Commemorates the day in 1953 when Watson, Crick, Wilkins, Franklin and colleagues published papers in the journal @nature on the structure of DNA

🧬Also commemorates the completion of the Human Genome Project in April 2003, took 13 years

#DNADay
DNA Double Helix:

🧬The two #DNA strands are reverse-complements

🧬Reading one strand in #reverse order and exchanging each base with its #complement gives the other strand

🧬A and T are complements, C and G are complements

DNA Sequence: AGTAGCAT
Reverse-Complement: ATGCTACT
In #Each DNA Strand:

🧬Pull the #DNA double helix apart, leaving the two single DNA strands

🧬The population (or occurrence) of every DNA sequence in that single-strand is #equivalent to the population of its reverse-complement DNA sequence in that same single-strand

#Panel discussion on "What is the new normal for #CESEE?"
@wiiw_news #wiiwSpringSeminar
Vizek: "Very strong public sector, lot of informal economy. Croatia experienced slow growth before, so new normal not really new. But political willingness to reform very low."
Zubovic: positive trends in #Serbia: - rapid #growth in #IT sector over last 3/4 years w/ 3% to 6% share of GDP - Huge Chinese #investments, but with #externalities - Macroeconomic #stability, no fiscal #deficit anymore - foreign #debt declining - Substantial growth of #GDP

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

Qqs grands moments de la discussion autour de l'ouvrage «Une histoire populaire de la France, de la guerre de 100 ans à nos jours», en présence de son auteur @GerardNoiriel, de @LarrereMathilde, spécialiste des mvts sociaux du 19e siècle et @UsulduFutur, vidéaste @OLGuillemets.
Cet événement était organisé par la section « Le Vent se lève » de @ScPoLyon. Ces tweets veulent restituer différents axes de réflexion soulevés par la discussion autour de l'ouvrage. Ils sont avant tout introductifs et invitent à une lecture attentive & approfondie de l'ouvrage.
@GerardNoiriel revient d'abord sur sa posture de chercheur : il ne pense pas son ouvrage comme « politique » : il dit défendre une « autonomie de la recherche » par rapport au politique et à la politique, tout en se définissant comme un « historien engagé ».

1/10 Les 10 terroristes interpellés qui projetaient un #attentat contre des musulmans étaient-ils fichés S ?
2/10 10 membres du groupuscule terroriste #AFO ont été interpellés par la DGSI. Armés, organisés, chauffés à blanc par l’idéologie #islamophobe et ses apôtres, ils projetaient de tuer des imams et des femmes voilées.
3/10 @BFMTV nous explique que les cibles de ces #terroristes étaient des détenus salafistes et des imams radicaux, comme s’il suffisait de qualifier un musulman de “radical” pour justifier le meurtre et l’action violente.
