Folks! I just saw on @CNN that @JoeBiden is nationally TIED with the #SupremeLoser.
40% of those voting in-person are voting for Loser. Over 80,000,000 expected to vote by mail, which is scary. Recently, 500,000 mail-in ballots were rejected for error.
As someone who is vulnerable to #COVID19 , I understand your concern about in-person voting.
However, I now plan on voting in #EarlyVoting. Why?
When credible media suggests that, if #SupremeLoser wins on election night; and, WILL declare victory...even as #MailInVoting is still being counted.
That declaration is step one of #SupremeLoser plans.

Your panel was SPOT ON! RE: APRE
@VP's speech (WHICH I COULDN'T AVOID SINCE EVERY INTERNATIONAL NEWS CHANNEL I get was carrying it): MY FIRST OBSERVATION as a fully trained & qualified Virologist:THE ABSENCE OF # FACEMASKS & #SocialDistancing!
They certainly behaved as if the #COVID19Pandemic was OVER IN THE USA!! Although @POTUS @FLOTUS were socially distanced from the crowd in front of them, the audience wasn't: from one another or even from @VP who gave one of them a fist: both without #facemasks!!
I can't wait for the statistics for #COVID19usa diagnostics, especially amongst the audience (many in the front row appear to be war injury-handicapped #WarVeterans) in the aftermath of today's public health fiasco!

Minister of Education @NormaFoleyTD1 must clarify her extraordinary assertion on @RTE_PrimeTime that secondary school children who don't wear masks in school will be "sent home" @downesr #rtept #Covid19Ireland
Her own @Education_Ire guidelines online are unequivocal: "It is not practical for students to wear masks properly for the duration of a school day"
Has the Minister read her own guidelines? @merrionstreet @fiannafailparty #BackToSchool
Sending a child home is a de facto suspension. NEWB handbook for schools (supplied to every school in Ireland) draws on Education Act 1998 & Education (Welfare) Act 2000. Suspension is only to be imposed in "exceptional circumstances" but due process & natural justice must apply.

#JustIn: #HKU's microbiology team issued a press release suggesting the 33-year-old IT patient, who came back from #Spain, is the world’s first #Covid19 reinfected patient.

From the #HKU report: Reinfection can occur just after a few months of recovery from the first infection. #SARS_CoV_2 may persist in the global population as is the case for other common-cold associated human coronaviruses, even if patients have acquired immunity.
Since the immunity can be short lasting after natural infection, vaccination should also be considered for those once infected person. Patients with previous #Covid19 infection should also comply with control measures such as masking and #socialdistancing.

More #FakeNewsMedia lies.

#USPS Statement on mailboxes:

Boxes that are rusted, in need of paint, or tagged with graffiti are brought into the service’s shop for repair, and new ones are installed to replace them. ImageImage
Mail in "absentee" voting is safe.
This means 1 ballot per person.
Absentee ballots have to provide I.D with the ballot.

Want mail in voting that does NOT require id and is ripe for #ballotharvesting

@realDonaldTrump answers reporter here:
The #Democrats want every person on every voters list to be sent a mail in ballot.
Voting lists are NOT regularly updated.
A person who has moved 5 times will recieve 5 ballots at 5 different addresses.
Tons of examples of dead ppl, pets voting, boxes of ballots "found"

“I didn’t say protests do anything,” #Fauci said.

Three new important studies came out in the past week about kids & #COVID19. All have limits (the science isn't perfect). But together, they matter, & you deserve to know about them!

A thread on the takeaways for all of us, as parents / teachers / communities? 🧵
1) First, this one from S Korea and @CDCMMWR:…

Like all the studies, this one wasn't perfect, but the takeaway: Older kids most likely transmit #COVID19 to their household at rates similar to adults. And younger kids transmit the virus, too.
What does that mean for the rest of us? It means that:

a] in schools, kids can likely transmit to teachers & vice versa, BUT

b] this study was done in households: so NO MASKS OR DISTANCING. (Very important point!)

OK folks, I don't think people are understanding the significance of this. So I'm going to give you some hints.

There is no *natural* medical or epidemiological explanation for flu cases to be (essentially) ZERO in winter in Australia...

(mini-thread)... Image
"Oh but we have been #socialdistancing".

No you haven't. You have been practising the same social distancing for #covid19 as for #influenza.

And, according to the modellers (sorry, @JohnsHopkins data reporters) these figures say it doesn't work.

So what's the explanation? ImageImage
Flu is endemic. We get a different strain every year so we are never immune.

Despite this we get a vaccine that really really isn't effective, but we keep taking it (mandated, depending on your job)…

This is exactly what the Government are doing to us

Using #COVID-19 #SocialDistancing #Masks

The Confusion Principle – Psychological Manipulation
When predictable patterns break apart..

This is when the cognitive dissonance kicks in..
To counter, we must observe the present moment

And avoid reactionary impulses

Pause, observe and be objective

1/ The lives of people with #disabilities aren't worth less, even now. #COVID19 has turned us into fearful things. #Quarantined in our homes, with the #pandemic touching every part of our lives, and any sense of ‘normalcy’ obliterated, this fear has us lashing out at one another.
2/ Me? I’m just terrified for my mother, in critical condition following complications from #coronavirus. Twice she has come so close to death that my own heart stopped in anticipation, the breath seizing in my lungs as my world prepared to end with her.

#COVID19 #ruralhealth
3/ My entire family contracted #COVID. My father spent 5 days in the hospital before being discharged; my sister and I struggled through from home. 3 weeks in, we’re making it, but none of us is fully well.

1/ @RealCedricDark's tweet got me diving into #COVIDー19 and coverage. These numbers are unbelievable and frankly terrifying - We're not paying nearly enough attention so let's talk:

#MedTwitter #publichealth @SACOV19 #medstudenttwitter
2/ @FamiliesUSA's report estimates 5.4 million workers are becoming uninsured because of job losses from Feb to May 2020. This increase in uninsured adults is nearly 40% higher than any ANNUAL increase EVER recorded.
3/ #Texas is estimated to have 659,000 uninsured adults.

Perspective: nearly 3 out of every 10 adults in TX under age 65 are uninsured as of May 2020.

How does a city's trauma system come together to both prepare for the expected surge of the #COVIDー19 #pandemic & manage the ongoing #epidemic of #gunviolence & other trauma?

Through a great collaborative effort, we published the #Philadelphia experience in @JTraumAcuteSurg

The full paper is published ahead of print here:…

It represents the importance of #teamwork in ensuring a robust, rapid, coordinated effort to manage an evolving threat

Our publication timing coincides with a brutal #July4th weekend where #Philadelphia saw over 30 people shot including several children

But how did the #pandemic and #socialdistancing mandate affect trauma volume in our centers?

1/ Been sent out on an errand, so I’ve decided to turn it into a short outside-only pub crawl of Hornsey and Crouch End, which I’ll live tweet for the next half hour or so. Working from east to west, I’ll report on whether the pubs are open and how pissed the patrons are.
2/ Just for the record, while I’m not planning to go into any of them, I’m not critical of them being reopened per se, nor do I begrudge people returning. It’s been a looooong lockdown. But I *am* critical of the government’s appalling and deliberately mixed messages. Anyway.
3/ First up, McCafferty’s Bar on Tottenham Lane, which is a “traditional Irish bar”, as evidenced by the greenness of the green paint, but I haven’t yet witnessed any loud fiddle music.

Status: open
Clientele: well spaced-out and not evidently pissed

1) The Quebec Health Ministry released an ad Friday promoting face coverings on public transit. The ad shows a young woman wearing a mask on a bus. (See the screen shot below.) In this thread, I will continue with the subject of #COVID19 transmission among younger Montrealers.
2) Quebec’s chief public health officer, Dr. @ArrudaHoracio, confirmed at a news conference Friday what I reported in my Twitter thread yesterday: that a growing percentage of younger Quebecers are contracting #COVID19 as the province has reopened bars, nightclubs and gyms.
3) Dr. Julie Losier, the Montérégie's director of public health, noted investigators are finding more contacts among younger people who're infected with the #coronavirus, suggesting they’re not maintaining #PhysicalDistancing. There’s also been a spike in the rate of STDs.
