Erste SARS-CoV-2 Rekombinanten in Österreich

In Proben wurde eine noch nicht beschriebene Rekombination von BA.2 mit dem Spike von BA.1.1 bestätigt. Was bedeutet Rekombination bei Coronaviren? Ist das epidemiologisch bzw. klinisch relevant? Und was tut sich international? 1/8
Coronaviren verändern nicht nur einzelne genetische Buchstaben, sondern können auch größere genetische Regionen austauschen. Voraussetzung dafür ist, daß ein Wirt von zwei Viren gleichzeitig infiziert wird, und beide in dieselbe Zelle eindringen. (Grafik: Lara Herrero) 2/8
Beides zusammen ist unwahrscheinlich, aber bei hohen Infektionszahlen möglich. Bisher in UK, FR und DK beschriebene SARS-CoV-2 Rekombinante inkludieren Delta+BA.1 („Deltacron“, XD), BA.1+BA.2 (XE) und auch Delta+BA.2 (XF). Siehe Abbildung von @UKHSA Technical Briefing #39. 3/8

“Of is het omdat onder de doden zoveel coronapatiënten waren? Die heten vaak niet eens patiënten, die heten ‘druk op de zorg’. Van druk op de zorg komen beperkingen en die beperkingen vinden we verschrikkelijk, dus het betreft hier eigenlijk doden die ons tot last zijn geweest”
Mij valt op dat wanneer men zegt dat de maatregelen niet (meer) in verhouding staan tot de opbrengst, men vaak kijkt naar het aantal #covid19 zieken en doden op dat moment
En niet naar het aantal dat was geweest zónder maatregelen

"Responding to outbreaks tomorrow is about preparing today." #ph260720 #pandemicpreparedness
Do you think the US should invest more funds to preparing for future pandemics? #ph260720 #pandemicpoll
Every time there's been an outbreak around the world, there's been a large investment in trying to mitigate and eliminate these threats. But we need to invest for the future, where we could face something worse. #ph260720 #preparedness

PhD thesis examination of Liangliang Lu has started. Exciting! I'll try live tweeting first time. Let's see how it goes. :) @MerikotkaCentre @AaltoENG
By the means modelling, the thesis contributes to advancing the #riskmanagement of #oil spills in
ice conditions, focusing on #pollution #preparedness and response.
First the system that generates the risk (Accident -> Collision & oil outflow -> oil drifting -> response and recovery) is developed. It is then used to identify critical factors related to (a) the accident aspects and (b) the response aspect.

So #ICYMI #OnThisDay in 1974, and into the following day, was the #Tornado #SuperOutbreak This montage of images is on the @NWS pages at: weather.gov/iln/19740403 Image
I have the following image as a poster in my office for several reasons, which I will expound upon in subsequent tweets. Firstly it was produced by hand by Theodore ‘Ted’ Fujita, who developed the F-scale (later the EF-Scale based in wind intensity and damage. Image
What I really noticed in the key/legend on the map was how he was also looking at the type of structure where fatalities occurred, something that other scientists (@StephenMStrader) were looking at before I came along, but once you start, you can’t stop. I’m pretty much obsessed. Image

Personal #preparedness lessons from the #wind #storm: 1. Upgraded UPS units worked great, much better than UPS-destroying planned blackout. APC 19 inch rackmount units, ex-corporate units. 1/x
2. SMA solar inverter's SPS (Secure Power Supply) worked very well for recharging 2 of the 3 identical model UPS units. Third triggered GFCI outlet I have on the SPS every time. 2/
3. UPS unit powering my switch, Wi-Fi router lasted 5 hours before I had to charge it with the solar. Another UPS--with new batteries from Amazon--powering just few other components lasted 3.5 hours, those batteries are not very good. UPS on desktop only lasted 2 hours. 3/

👪👋Hello #30days30waysUK 'September is Preparedness Month'. Today we tackle #preparedKids .
Any #preparedness for emergencies must involve children and young people. As any parent knows, kids are capable and resilient given the right support...
⬇️🧵thread
When children are given accurate, clear information in accessible, age-appropriate ways, they are highly motivated to help reduce emergency and disaster risks, both at home and in their communities.
Children can contribute to community resilience.

Involve children in your household preparedness.
