In nieuwe #OMTadvies wordt geadviseerd terug te gaan naar de normale maatregelen bij luchtweginfecties:
- thuisblijven als je ziek bent
- hoesten/niezen in de elleboog
- handen wassen

Volgens #OMT geen reden meer voor standaard testen en #isolatie

- timing nu alle indicatoren een stijging van besmettingen aangeven, net na #Carnaval en tijdens #wintersport en relatief lang na #herhaalprik voor ouderen en andere kwetsbare groepen niet ideaal
- gaat tegen advies @WHO en @ECDC_EU in

- #Covid_19 is niet hetzelfde als andere infecties door groter langdurig verhoogd risico op o.a. hartvaatziekten en #LongCovid
- er is geen infectie die in zijn eentje verantwoordelijk is voor zoveel ziekenhuisopnames door het hele jaar heen

This photo shows an account that's been hacked to remotely activate the camera.

But in this case, the author of the intrusion is not a government or hacktivist; it's an open-source intelligence company you've probably never heard of.

#Thread on #StoryKillers part VII (1/8) ⤵️
Hidden in a trove of Colombian military docs leaked to @FbdnStories by #Guacamaya, we discovered a brochure for a powerful social media surveillance tool.

Its capacities include influence operations, mass geolocation of targets and even automated phishing campaigns. (2/8)
The leaked brochure highlights use-case examples that demonstrate targeting of activists and journalists.

We linked the brochure to S2T Unlocking Cyberspace, an open-source intelligence company with current and former offices in Singapore, Sri Lanka, the UK and Israel. (3/8)

🧵1/ PANDA's @bell00david uses his working experience with WHO to analyse proposed IHR amendments in-depth.

🚨 Some key points in thread ⬇️…
2/ #WHO is working on two agreements that will expand its powers & role in declared health emergencies & pandemics. These include widening the definition of ‘health emergencies’ within which such powers may be used.
3/ The #IHR amendment process in WHO is relatively transparent. Amendments are proposed by national bureaucracies & collated by WHO. WHO has gone to unusual lengths to open hearings to public submissions.

#Surveillance must be done in a population with high risk of that disease. Nevertheless, patients at the higher end of the spectrum (e.g., cirrhosis with Child-Pugh C) carry a restricted #prognosis even with radical therapies. @EleanorBarnesOx @CR_UK @NIHRresearch 1/7
Cirrhotic patients with advanced liver failure or Child-Pugh B with #decompensation are usually not screened for HCC because they could not tolerate effective therapies. This changes if they are listed for transplant, however. 2/7
HCC onset can trigger changes in priority on the list as well as lend someone ineligible for #transplant. It is important, therefore, to maintain surveillance of HCC for this population. 3/7

Science. Surveillance. Responsibility.

Three words that encapsulate my three main messages to the @WHO European Region today, amid the latest developments in the #COVID19 narrative.

First, going with the #science.

From the information available to @WHO, the SARS-CoV-2 virus variants circulating in #China are those that have already been seen in Europe and elsewhere.

NEW: Criminal Intel Files Show Facial Recognition, Warrantless Surveillance in Minnesota
A little-known multi-agency drug war group runs thousands of facial recognition scans and other surveillance operations… Documents show capabilities of North Central HIDTA Investiga
We found over 37,000 requests for support, connecting at least 233 law enforcement organizations in MN and beyond. Documents obtained via a series of public records requests from the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) provide rare insight into police intelligence gathering.
Many drug and other task forces as well as more routine law enforcement operations within the region receive intelligence from investigators within the Criminal Intelligence Division (CID) and Criminal Information Sharing and Analysis (CISA) units.

The original sin of tech boosters and critics is an undue focus on what a technology *does*, rather than who it does it *to* and who it does it *for*.

#Thread: 🇬🇷 tax authorities have launched an inquiry into the leak of #ReporterUnited’s tax data.

❗Another intimidation attempt, following the physical surveillance of our reporters & the #SLAPP lawsuit filed by the former SG to the 🇬🇷 PM.
2⃣ On November 23 we exposed a spear phishing operation intended to intimidate #ReportersUnited.

🔎 The operation included a fake website & a fake journalist who got illegal access to our outlet’s tax data.
#PredatorGate #surveillance #scandal…
3⃣ The spear phishing operation against #ReportersUnited came hours after we received a warning from a source with very good knowledge of the #surveillance #scandal.

❗People connected to state institutions “are trying to find something against you,” the source told us.

🧵#ReportersUnited, #EfSyn & @nasoskook submitted a court request to bring Dimitriadis’ lawsuit regarding #PredatorGate sooner to trial.

Dimitriadis, nephew of the 🇬🇷PM, resigned from his post as SG to @kmitsotakis, after our revelations on the #scandal.…
2⃣ On November 17 the trial of Dimitriadis’ lawsuit against #ReportersUnited, #EfSyn, @nasoskook, @boublis & @Chondrogiannos, by which he demands more than €500,000, was postponed due to an impediment of the attorneys of Reporters United & @EFSYNTAKTON.
3⃣ Lawyers of #ReportersUnited & #EfSyn asked for a nearer new court date to promptly bring Dimitriadis’ lawsuit to trial.

❌ However, the court date was settled for 25/1/2024.

❗So we filed a preference request for a close-range court date, as 14 months is a long time.

Trump's brand-new social network 'Truth Social' used Mastodon's code. @joinmastodon

Mastodon's revenue is not dependent on advertisers like other social media companies like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Tiktok, etc. The ad-based revenue model isn't necessarily good in all cases as ads=tracking leads to the users -> product and advertisers -> customers Credit: Four Week MBA

"There is no such thing as digitization without surveillance. The very act of turning what was not data into data is a form of surveillance."
"Privacy is important because it protects us from possible abuses of power. As long as human beings are human beings and organizations are organizations, abuses of power will be a constant temptation and threat. That is why it is supremely reckless to build a surveillance

As a survivor of child sexual and physical abuse, I would never have had the confidence to tell my story if I didn’t have access to confidential communications channels.
It took 25 years for the Police to finally investigate and prosecute my case, leading to multiple convictions for sexual assaults against myself and 27 other boys at my boarding school.
