“One study…found…#schools that required #masking had…37% lower incidence of #COVID19…Another study…found…high levels of #mask wearing among students helped keep…rate of in-school spread…to under 1%…as…cases were surging in the wider community.”

@GlobalFund 2021 #ResultsReport: A reader’s guide

#COVID19 is the headline, but there is a lot more to talk about, especially with the #7thReplenishment coming up.
theglobalfund.org/media/11304/co…
a 🧵...
#TB is front and center, because it was worst hit by #COVID19. Resources in pulmonary health diverted from TB towards Covid19 – doctors, beds, GeneXpert machines and cartridges – on top of everything else.
🧵
#HIV was impacted too, especially #prevention and #testing. #Malaria fared better, probably in part because countries with endemic malaria were hit by #COVID19 latter, though testing did drop.

Thrilled to announce the Longevity #Impetus Grants, $21M+ towards basic research that could accelerate our understanding and control of human aging.
We welcome proposals from researchers in- and outside the #Aging field. Please share!

More info: impetusgrants.com & this 🧵
Impetus Grants are $10k-500k (w max 10% overhead). Smaller requests favored, to support more projects. No project period and no strings attached. Scientists at non-profits worldwide can apply with ideas that shift perspectives & capabilities in #Aging research, starting Sep 13th.
Inspiration came from @tylercowen & @patrickc's #COVID19 Fast Grants. Their team made funding decisions in 2 weeks, and the grants have already led to both discoveries and better tools for #testing.
If it's feasible to fund science this way, shouldn't we? future.a16z.com/what-we-learne…

1/ This is why we need to #AlertTheClass, and the lack of mandatory #COVID19 #testing for all in place before opening #schools here may be a big mistake.

The #DeltaVariant is surging in #Arlington County, but the people who spread it "feel just fine."

nature.com/articles/d4158…
2/ #Delta's #KillerAdvantage:

Infected folks spread 🦠 for 1.8 days before they ever get first symptom.

Symptoms show up 5.8 days AFTER infection, on average, says Hong Kong research team.

Spreaders also have far higher viral load.
74% infections from presymptomatic spread
3/ One bit of good news in this: Vaccinated individuals were 65% less likely to infect someone, but the estimate is based on a very small sample size.

Why do I get the sinking feeling that this is the next phase of war on virus. #RSV headlines eerily reminiscent of early #COVID headlines. A new #mRNA that will target healthy children under 12 yrs. The leveraging of #fear in parents. #Children as experimental subjects 4 profit.
"Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is one of the most common agents of upper & lower respiratory illnesses in infants & children worldwide. Those infected may present w/ mild, coldlike symptoms that are clinically indistinguishable from those of other viral resp. infections."
"Routine laboratory #testing for #RSV is not recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics because treatment is supportive only, and diagnosis does not change the management of disease for most patients..."

1/5 Which #TravelRestrictions were most effective to contain the spread of #COVID19?🌍New systematic review out now in the Journal of Infection (pre-proof):

➡️doi.org/gp4r

@rki_de @CBcheraoui @Elie__Akl @SPARK_AUB @biainfection

#RKIinternational
2/5 In 2020, most countries switched from total to targeted #border closures followed by mandatory #quarantine and #screening of #travelers.
3/5 Evidence suggests: border closures may reduce the number of #COVID19 cases, disrupt disease spread across countries/between regions & slow #outbreak progression.

Early implementation, in combination with measures to reduce #transmission rates, likely enhances these effects.

#Testing of #well GA-1 has now officially started,led by ISOR (Iceland Geosurvey) after KenGen supplied and installed the necessary gear to blow the well. The well was opened for flow yesterday at 13:34 Ethiopian time.
#Ethiopia #KenGen #PMEthiopia #MOF_Ethiopia # Renewableenergy
First the gascap was blown vertically into air in safe weather conditions with the wind blowing to appropriate direction. H2S gas detectors in the neighborhood of the well pad did not respond meaning that no trace of H2S in the surrounding emphasizing

safety of the community around. Daily monitoring through our air quality monitors at key receptor locations is on going.
When steam arrived at well head and the flow was clean for debris the flow was directed towards the separator. Flow has been study in the past 24 hours.

It all started in Aug 2020.

How about summarizing a book in 40 minutes using a mindmap and spending the next 20 minutes discussing the book and the session?

Here is the 🧵highlighting what I liked from each book

#bookreading @ClubHbr
First book was "Who Moved My Cheese?" @MovedMyCheese by Spencer Johnson.

Key lesson: Change is constant. Be prepared.
#bookreading @ClubHbr
Second book: "Exploring Requirements: Quality Before Design" by @JerryWeinberg and Donald C Gause

Key lesson: You don't always need a product to find a bug. You can find bugs in the requirements too.

The shift-left approach in the software testing world is when testing is performed early on in the lifecycle of the product. But given the growing complexities of products in the market today, we must customize solutions that work for your organization.
In this article, we will discuss a few applied scenarios in shifting left/right, and share how customized approaches for your teams are critical in the success of your test automation efforts.

British Medical Journal #BMJ says UK #government’s #COVID-19 response created “maelstrom of avoidable harm”
On Tuesday, the #BMJ (formerly, British Medical Journal ) accused the British #government of having unleashed “a maelstrom of avoidable harm,”
including the deaths of up to 150,000 people “who died earlier than they might have” as a result of its disastrous response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Executive editor Kamran #Abbasi made this damning indictment in a comment on the testimony given last week by Dominic Cummings,
former adviser to Prime Minister Boris #Johnson. His account, Abbasi writes, leads to “the inescapable conclusion… that the disastrous manner in which the #government is run is a major contributor to excess deaths in the UK, although Johnson persists with his denials.”

Covid-19: Social Murder, they wrote—elected, unaccountable, and unrepentant

BMJ 2021; 372 doi: doi.org/10.1136/bmj.n3… (Published 04 February 2021)

What went wrong in the global governance of #covid-19?
kabbasi@bmj.com
After two million deaths, we must have redress for mishandling the #pandemic
Murder is an emotive word. In law, it requires premeditation. Death must be deemed to be unlawful. How could “murder” apply to failures of a pandemic response?
Perhaps it can’t, and never will, but it is worth considering. When #politicians and #experts say that they are willing to allow tens of thousands of premature deaths for the sake of population immunity or in the hope of propping up the economy,

A #Tory billionaire bankrolled ‘herd immunity’ #scientist who advised PM against lockdown
Exclusive: Johnson ruled out lockdown 24 hours after meeting with Sunetra #Gupta – resulting in ‘1.3m extra #COVID infections’

A #scientist who advised Boris Johnson against introducing a lockdown last autumn was bankrolled by a billionaire Tory donor, openDemocracy can reveal today.
#Johnson’s apparent U-turn decision to not impose #lockdown, which experts say may have resulted in an estimated 1.3 million extra #COVID infections, came just 24 hours after meeting with Oxford epidemiologist Sunetra #Gupta. Last Year

Not so poetic (in fact one at all!) but here is a thread on my ordeal over last few days. Pl read n share this thread on #COVID19 #testing #healthtec and #bureaucracy . Its sad and if it could happen to me, it cld happen to anyone. You know that feeling when someone calls (1/9)
on ur cell frm the next room. It was my son n sure enough he was sick. High fever, backache. I quickly called the app company we’ve been using for Covid testing. Its called Klinik app n with a paranoid husband, travel n mom, we’ve done 20+ tests with ‘em. Many reminders (2/9)
later, by 8 pm, samples were collected frm me, Mom, Dad n son. We put Covid protocols in place n gave leave to all help etc. By night, he was throwing up and I had no choice but to attend to him. In all previous cases of using testing, v got our ‘negative’ reports in 18 hrs(3/9)
