#HTNumberTheory | HT analysis suggests that measures such as lockdowns may not be necessary and can actually hurt. Here are four charts that show why

#HTNumberTheory | The seven-day average of deaths at the national-level does not seem to be increasing consistently

This is simply because #Kerala has been reconciling its figures for past deaths (pre-#Omicron) on a daily basis

#HTNumberTheory | To be sure, governments are correct in advising caution, despite the chances of lower fatalities

This is because hospitalisations, can put huge pressure on the finances of Indian households

Wuhan - china virus , 2020 was a beginning - with breaks here and there ,without respite , the virus spread was and is scary. Today TN reports ,number of cases increasing , discharges are lesser, yet they're stopping testing for Omicron; vague statement stating that by the time
testing is completed they've recovered - I don't understand the logic - do you ? @thangapushpam03 @pardhu_leo ? Temples are closed/ Normal life has now become a new normal which people seem to be forgetting - added to this was my surgery ,which another dimension to the new normal
Where/when/how this is going to end seems to be a question without an answer. Somehow my native town and the district has escaped the wrath so far, but today I heard scary reports of the wholesale market being flooded with people - and the next 2 days is going to be more . I have

#Pakistan case numbers ⬆️by 50%.The ripples of 5th🌊 have begun. We detected #Omicron in samples as early as Dec 6. It has a doubling time of 1.5-3 days, much faster than Delta. How do we brace ourselves? Recipe is the same: #mask #SocialDistancing #boosterdose as eligible 1/
Who should get the vaccine? Anyone who is 12 and above. Who should get a booster? 1:Immunocompromised (all ELIGIBLE age groups)
2: Those 50 years & above
3: Healthcare workers
*Booster when last vaccine give at least more 6 months ago 2/
Recovering from Covid? Wait for 28 days before getting a booster.
All vaccines being offered as boosters: Sinopharm, Sinovac, Pfizer or Moderna 3/

When the vaccine drops to ~50% efficacy, what does it mean in practice? This is how I interpret it.

when a vaccine is ~50% effective it does not mean "breakthrough" infection will be 50% less severe.

No, it means that out of 100 vaccinated, 50 will be protected & 50 will not
The problem with such efficacy is that one cannot know in which "50" group one is: protected group or unprotected group.

In practice, it means that when one is vaccinated but the vaccine drops to ~50% efficacy, a given individual can be 100% protected or 0% protected.
Now, let's analyze what we know about current vaccines. Multiple studies reported that by ~ 6 months post 2-dose vaccination (and starting at 3 months) vaccine efficacy drops and reaches below 50%

🔴Transmissibility or Virulence : What should really worry us ?
Since these two have been widely discussed, given #omicron is around. A short explainer 👇.
3 plots below - from ~2x of Rt value and 1/2 of hospitalization rates (less virulent) to basal value (~ Delta wave)
Rt is the effective reproductive no.
One could clearly see why 2x Rt would create a sharper and ⏫rate of hospitalizations.
For a less virulent and highly transmissible variant, assuming 1/2x hospitalization rate, this would still create a significant wave of hospitalizations.
A much detailed mathematical basis to this was discussed in the past by @AdamJKucharski

1-Don’t get me wrong, I’m v pleased that @UKParliament are now taking #COVID seriously & doing SOME of the simple things we know ⬇️ transmission.

#Masks #SocialDistancing #WorkFromHome

Assuming everyone working on the estate is >18, the vast majority will be doubly vaccinated.
2-So tell me, why are pupils (largely unvaccinated), education staff & families of both not afforded such protections?
I searched the #DfE website HOPING for advice on 😷s, social distancing, options for CV/CEV pupils & staff to work/learn from home, ventilation?
@educationgovuk
3- But NOTHING, just👇🏼from @nadhimzahawi in the last few days re LFTs, NO MENTION of any other mitigations at all.

#COVIDVaccination has only just begun in the 12-15s, so what are CV/CEV pupils, staff & those with CV/CEV family members to do?

Maybe the @UKHSA can help….?

1/8 It was not unexpected that pts w/ #STEMI would fare worse w/ than w/o #COVID19
2/8 However, our study was unique in design compared w/ prior studies, allowing for more accurate estimates of mortality risk: 1) larger, more representative cohort; 2) more contemporary control groups
3/8 We characterized mortality risk separately for pts with pre-hospital and in-hospital #STEMI

Now I’m getting really angry @GavinWilliamson @educationgovuk

This document isn’t t worth the paper/screen it’s written on!

Who advised you on this unscientific, dangerous nonsense?

@PHE_uk by any chance?
The same PHE that has failed HCPs on #PPE throughout the pandemic?

Just for a moment put the children, staff & families who’re being unnecessarily exposed to #COVID19 day after day in schools that are almost completely MITIGATION FREE.

Who’ll be caring for #COVID patients in the INEVITABLE, but AVOIDABLE surge that we’re at the start of?

WHO Mr Williamson?

My HCP/NHS colleagues have for 18/12, & will continue to, put our lives, & those of our loved ones, at ⬆️risk to provide the care that patients w/ #COVID19 need across ALL healthcare settings & in their homes.

Day in day out!

For anyone who hasn’t realised just how deep the #BackToNormal lunacy runs, take a look at some of the “nearly 50” @Conservatives who are actively supporting @UsforThemUK’s dangerous & irresponsible campaign to make 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿schools #COVID19 MITIGATION-FREE!

The ring-leader is @SteveBakerHW, of #CRG AND #ERG fame. Neither he or his #CRG mate @Mark_J_Harper appear to have any understanding of #airborne viral transmission.
Mr Harper’s clearly also a fan of the unscientific & reckless #LivingWithCovid mindset.

But it’d be unfair to give @halfon4harlowMP ALL the credit for causing unnecessary harm & suffering.

Several other high profile @Conservatives are members of the @UsforThemUK support group.

1/210: Markus Kerber's Apollo 13

In March 2020, the German Ministry of the Interior @BMI_Bund issued a #strategypaper that weaponized fear in order to accomplish compliance with #COVID policies. The authors' emails were litigated under #FOIA request. My analysis. #MEGATHREAD ⬇️ Image
2/210: The @BMI_Bund emails have been released to the public as they were successfully sued by lawyer Niko Härting in a FOIA proceeding. They can be requested directly from @BMI_Bund/ @rki_de via @fragdenstaat. Download it here: bit.ly/3knoa6Y bit.ly/3Bd0rgj Image
3/210: The emails originated March 19-25, 2020. They are so explosive because they map the inner discourse of the @BMI_Bund's now infamous #COVID-19 taskforce, which produced several crucial domestic policy documents. bit.ly/2TT3R7O @OttoKolbl

In the weeks since Jul 19, we’ve seen the slow but sure abandonment of #COVID restrictions
V few 😷s in indoor public places, 5-10% ppl are still wearing them, if that.

Festivals are happening, nightclubs are open, there’s virtually nothing that’s out of #Covid19UK bounds.

Good afternoon @RishiSunak & @BorisJohnson

Claims that “we can’t control the spread of the virus.The virus is doing what’s doing….”, that we must learn to “live w/ #COVID” & exert “personal responsibility” are incorrect, disingenuous & dangerous!

What you actually mean is that YOU (& your government) have deliberately CHOSEN to prioritise the ECONOMY over the HEALTH & WELLBEING of the British ppl…..but are dishonestly & patronisingly pretending there is no other option?

1/🧵 Ivermectin & Masks: A #COVID doctor’s opinion…
 
It’s not political. This is medical.
 
I’m a dad to 3 daughters w a brother who has Down syndrome. I validate parents who want kids to play freely in school & interact w/out a mask as if times were normal. But they aren’t…
2/ Ivermectin: I have good friends, dear people, who don’t believe they can get #Vaccinated because mRNA #Pfizer & #Moderna were safety tested w fetal cell lines, so they want to use Ivermectin instead.

IMPORTANT…
3/ The Fetal Cell line in question is HEK-293. It was NOT used to create the vaccines. It was used to test them, but so is nearly every other drug in your medicine cabinet, including Ivermectin. More about HEK-293…

#Menticide is here & with it, a new attempt to establish a "#TechnoTotalitarian" rule over the lives of American citizens.

The final variant of #Coronavirus could very well be the manifestation of a #NewWorldOrder under #totalitarian rule.
That may sound absurd, but what is very concerning is that many talking heads in the media & even public figures are now making very carefully worded emotional appeals to logic to further induce a totalitarian #masspsychosis.

There was a small uptick in presence at "Retail & Recreation" facilities such as restaurants, shopping centres, theme parks, museums and cinemas.

At the weekend, people took advantage of the warm, sunny weather and spent time outdoors in "Parks" which includes places like public parks and beaches. ImageImage

I’m here at the Orange County federal courthouse for the second day of testimony in Michael Avenatti’s client theft trial. I’ll tweet updates on this thread, so stay tuned. 🧵
The jury isn't in the courtroom yet, and prosecutors and Avenatti are fighting about exhibits being admitted during Geoff Johnson’s testimony today. Selna wants everything disclosed.
Prosecutor Alex Wyman is reading a list of them now. He’s only giving the numbers, but they are bank records. Avenatti is pointing out problems with declarations and exhibits, saying they're mismatched.

🎨⏳📜Nautilus Cup, Chicago Art Institute
During the Age of Discovery, European artists were inspired by the exotic materials suddenly available to them. Goldsmiths seized on the opportunity to include wondrous and seemingly magical materials -
-including coconuts, ivory, ostrich eggs, and, in this case, a nautilus shell from the Indian Ocean - into works of art that celebrated both nature and artifice. These types of objects were also popular with collectors during the 19th c, when the mounts on this cup were reworked.

The #COVID19 pandemic has triggered a global crisis, but its impact is not shared equally.

Social hierarchies, inequalities, and injustice reproduced during the pandemic have added to existing challenges faced by vulnerable categories of people. #Thread Image
The fear of contagion ignited by #Covid19 has renewed old associations between dirt, disease, and particular communities.

18 of my distant relatives/family friends, residing in different parts of Ranchi have been exposed to #Covid
2 are hospitalised as they are facing difficultly in breathing.
Things are getting pretty serious in #Jharkhand
#MaskUp #StayHome #WashYourHands #SocialDistancing
1. Use N95 mask with ties (please don't use masks with earloops)
2. Ensure that your mask has a nose pin
3. Wear your mask tightly
4. Sanitize your hands after counting money, most of the banks cashiers got covid due to this ^
5. If possible, make payments via digital wallets
