By the time people are realizing on what is happening, it'll be already too late.

We all will reap what the rich and the powers that be sow.

#ConfuseDivideConquer (CDC)
But i am certain that using paper straws and washing hands will make the cut. 🤷‍♂️
So no need to worry.
None of your believes in any kind of entity, none of your genders, non of your race, non of your social status, none of your politics or anything else will matter when we're all being wiped out by rich people.

They care about you, as much as you care about the vulnerable. Image

In einer typischen stationären Einrichtung liegt die erforderliche CO 2 -Konzentration in Innenräumen, bei der R 0 1 nicht überschreitet, unter 540 ppm ohne Maske, 770 ppm mit einer chirurgischen Maske und 8200 ppm mit einer N95-Maske. Image

1/ Via ScienceMediaCenter erklärte Christian #Drosten in 02/20 auf die Frage, inwiefern die Forschung an #Impfstoffen gegen #SARS aus vergangenen Ausbrüchen schon die jetzige #Impfstoff-Forschung beschleunigen könnte:

„Wir müssen also … von null anfangen.“ Image

#Drosten erläuterte dies unter anderem damit:

I went to a "progressive" high school in Boston in the 90s. Their recent PR is more & more showy as far as big 😁 unmasked faces in school & at alumni events incl. a BIG in-person tribute to a recently deceased teacher. 🧵 1/8 #MediaLiteracy #CultureIsOrdinary #StorytimeWithTamar
My comment on their social media page highlighting the unmasked students, faculty & alumni at the event included my condolences & pointed to the fact (for the unmasked + the folks with masks ON THEIR CHINS) that #CovidIsNotOver. Perhaps it wasn't the right moment to mention, 2/8
but a day school smack dab in the middle of Boston inviting EVERYONE to join them w/barely 3 ppl. who are masked in photos of the many participants shows terrible judgment/understanding of where we're at with #SARS & with #Community.

My comment was removed from the page. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3/8

1. The real risk of #SARS Let'er R.I.P (Re-Infection Policy) is positive feedback on pathogens OTHER than SARS-CoV. Take #Mpox.

What is remarkable about this cluster in Taiwan, other than it not being in WHO statistics (Taiwan being no member state)?… Image
2. "Wear a mask and seek medical attention immediately"

WOULD you LOOK at THAT! Taiwan CDC recommends N95 for #Mpox! Almost like the virus is airborne*

* given respiratory symptoms and systemic disease, OF COURSE it is

very science based scicomm… ImageImageImageImage
3. Taiwan reports 132 deaths, WHO only 120.

I'll share some literature next, when I find time; we volunteer ours after all.

Extending Let 'er R.I.P. (Reinfection Policy) from coronaviruses to poxviruses is quite the gamble.… ImageImage

These are the two opposing origins theories:
- zoonosis
- a laboratory leak/accident

Do you want me to settle the SARS origins debate in just one tweet?
The former US President famously made these tweets:

- this SARS virus is "NOVEL"


- this SARS virus leaked from a lab in China.

Only one of those statements can be true.
The Liar and the Truth Teller is a classic logic puzzle which can be applied here as a "lie detector" system.

1. How does SARS cause immunosenescence?

Its unique flawed reproduction process in the cytoplasm creates free floating misfolded protein (prion) debris. It causes mitochondrial damage in #LongCOVID #LongSARS patients or immune-mediated damage (complement cascade or feed-forward)
2. AJ thinks T cells are both killed when terminally differentiated via FAS; and naïve T cells are aged through bystander activation and via the feed-forward controller, creating a negative feedback loop to soaking up pro-inflammatory cytokines to prevent severe illness or death.
3. There are other mechanisms; read about complement activation for instance. 结果, SARS-CoV-2 appears perfect at serially challenging and insidiously aging the immune system.

Other viruses that cause similar immune aging teach us that a cure must address these exact mechanisms.

Excited to present my labs latest pre-print, in which we uncover one of the mechanisms used by #SARS-CoV-2 to evade the #ImmuneSystem. A short tweet-torial on what we found 1/10…
Innate immune cells respond first to infection, often by "eating" pathogens. This slows infection, but full clearance often requires adaptive immunity - as in the antibodies and T cells that respectively neutralize pathogens and kill pathogen-infected cells. 2/10 Image
Activating adaptive immunity requires antigen presentation, where an innate immune cell shows fragments (antigens) of a pathogen to cells of the adaptive immune system. If the adaptive cell recognizes the antigen, it becomes activated and begins fighting the infection. 3/10 Image

"Remarkably, previously #hospitalized and #nonhospitalized patients remained with decreased numbers of CD1c+ #myeloid DCs and pDCs seven months after #SARSCoV2 #infection."

Die Häufung schwerer #Streptokokken-Infektionen, bestimmter Pilzinfektionen und generell schwerer verlaufender viraler Infekte sollte ein Warnsignal sein, umso mehr als sich das Narrativ der #Immunschuld als unhaltbar erwiesen hat. 1/6
#SARSCoV2 #ImmuneTheft #Immunschwäche
Wir können zwar die meisten Zellen des #Immunsystems gut charakterisieren, das Zusammenspiel selbiger aber ist hochkomplex, sodass man „Fehler im System“ häufig erst an deren Auswirkungen sieht, z.B. an der Häufung oder Zunahme des Schweregrades bestimmter Infekte. 2/6
Dass bakterielle u.a. Infekte gerne als Trittbrettfahrer bei viralen Infekten auftreten, ist nichts Neues.
Noch nie zuvor musste das #Immunsystem vieler Leute jedoch in so kurzer Zeit wiederholte Infektionen durch ein #SARS-Virus bewältigen.

1. Shall I continue the #SIDU format in 2023?

"Syndemic infectious disease update 230109, incl. politics of #sars #mpox #climate"

We learned the wrong lessons from pandemic errors in China and the west but I can't fill holes in public policy. Some of you/us need to learn fast.
2. Here another outstanding thread by @RealCheckMarker that's sure to fly under the radar.
@RealCheckMarker 3. As shared previously. Hundreds of millions will suffer from Long SARS. We not only waste the ongoing population-level experiment - because states don't collect data, despite their legal obligations under IHR 2005 - but even threw away data that existed.

Back in the days of John Humphrey Noyes before he got suspended for posting a study indicating there's viral persistence in epithelium of kids, because everyone includes kids.
How does a twit like this get 108K views propagating “what if viral persistence is REAL”?

It’s almost like we are back to banning twitter accounts for insisting SARS is airborne!
WHEN the rest of non-SARS experts acknowledge that “viral persistence is a thing”, we will be one step closer to acknowledging the true immunity dysfunction threat of SARS
