"#Herdimmunity is ‘a dangerous fallacy unsupported by scientific evidence'."

Thread to summarize new #COVID19 paper by @TheLancet via Professor @AlexWFriedrich1.

/1


#INFECTIVITY / #MORTALITY

"Its high infectivity, combined with the susceptibility of unexposed populations to a NEW virus, creates conditions for rapid community spread."

"The infection fatality rate of COVID-19 is several-fold HIGHER than that of seasonal influenza."

/2
YOUNG PEOPLE / #IMMUNITY

"...infection can lead to persisting illness, including in young, previously healthy people"

"It is unclear how long protective immunity lasts"

"SARS-CoV-2 is capable of re-infecting people who have already had the disease"

2/8 In 1502-3, the librarian Atūfī catalogued the manuscripts at the Inner Treasury for Ottoman Sultan Bayezid II. Out of 5700 volumes in the catalogue, how many do you think related to #geography?
3/8 Only 48! He listed #geographic books as “books on Wonders of Creation and "the Images of the Climes” (both popular titles) in 10/20 after prophetic biographies, historiography, military science
and horsemanship. Read more about his catalogue in brill.com/view/title/552…

Comment ces #virus qu’on ne trouvez que chez les #animaux ont pu franchir la barrière des espèces et infecter l'#Homme?

C’est tout simplement à cause de l’« #EFFONDREMENT_ÉCOLOGIQUE ».

Et qu’est-ce qui est à l’origine de cet effondrement écologique?

On peut citer :
1)la #DÉFORESTATION qui crée des "passerelles" pour la circulation des virus entre animaux mais aussi entre animaux et humains. Conséquences : certains animaux meurent et d’autres perdent leurs habitats naturels de ce fait des espèces se retrouvent à cohabiter. Elles sont
davantage en contact avec l’Homme créant ainsi une #promiscuité entre les animaux mais aussi entre l’homme et les animaux ce qui favorise la #transmission d’agents pathogènes qui, par #recombinaison entre virus d’espèces différentes, peut être dangereuse pour la santé humaine.

Our collaborative study unravels #SARSCoV2 #SuperSpreader events in #Austria and the inter- and intra-host mutational dynamics.

Preprint at @biorxivpreprint available now: biorxiv.org/content/10.110… !

Through #Phylogenetic #SARSCoV2 analyses and data integration with @GISAID @nextstrain , we unveiled the links between #Austrian clusters to the global #pandemic.

2/7
With #Epidemiological and #Phylogenetic data we investigated the geographic origins and distributions of SARS-CoV-2 in Austria. Different viruses circulated in the ski-resort region of #Ischgl with the most dominant #Tyrol-1 linked to @nextstrain clade 20C.

#Airborne transmission: defined as the spread of an infectious agent caused by the dissemination of droplet nuclei (#aerosols) that remain infectious when suspended in air over long distances & time. What do we know about this route for #COVID19 #SARSCoV2? A #thread 🧵
Experimental studies have generated #aerosols of infectious samples using high-powered jet nebulizers under controlled laboratory conditions. #SARSCoV2 #Covid_19 #IDtwitter
Some studies in #healthcare settings where symptomatic #COVID19 patients were cared for but where #aerosol generating procedures were not performed found #SARSCoV2 #RNA but the quantity of RNA detected was in extremely low numbers. #airborne #transmission

@WHO, #SARSCoV2’nin nasıl yayıldığına dair kamuoyuna bilimsel bir açıklamada bulundu:
•Bulaşların çoğu semptomatik hastalar ile damlacık yoluyla gerçekleşiyor.
•Damlacık ve fomite olasılığına rağmen, bazı durumlarda/mekanlarda hava yolu (#Aerosol) ile bulaş mümkün olabilir.
2/
•Bulaşların çoğu kişiler semptom gösterirlerken ya da göstermeye başlamadan az evvel gerçekleşiyor.

•Asemptomatik #COVID19 hastaların ne sıklıkta #SARSCoV2 bulaştırdıkları halen bilinmemekle beraber, bu şekilde bulaşma olasılığının yüksek olmadığı düşünülüyor.
3/
•Kan yoluyla bulaşın olup olmadığı halen belli değil, fakat risk burada az görünüyor.
•Fomiteler (nesne üzerinden bulaş) mümkün, ama kesin bir vaka hala yok.
