1/ Happy Friday!
Today I am celebrating #scicomm! As of this week, I have contributed 21 articles to the @ASMicrobiology Bugs & Drugs blog! Here's a recap of some of these articles for those who love clinical #microbiology

2/ First, just a quick note on writing for @ASMicrobiology. Volunteering my time to write has been one of the highlights of the last 2 yrs for me! So grateful for the amazing Bugs & Drugs team, especially @JulieMarieWolf @JClinMicro @ScienceInTheDMV who took a chance on me.

YELLOW FEVER AND FRACTIONAL DOSES
#Publichealth piece discussing the yellow fever outbreak of 2015/16 in Africa & highlighting the amazing work of researchers working on fractional #vaccine dosing. It's an amazing story, full of impressive characters.

1/I want to take some time to share findings from our semi-recent PETACS study. This was a wonderful collaboration between @COpedsID faculty, survey designers, and #microbiologists across the US.

2/ First, I want to emphasize that this project highlights many of the reasons I chose to pursue a #PhD in clinical & translational science. As a long-time microbiologist, I can say that the clinical lab doesn't often have a seat at the clinical effectiveness / research table.
3/ This project focuses on the tracheal aspirate culture- a diagnostic process that is greatly limited by contamination with normal respiratory flora, and which lacks consensus or standardization across labs and hospitals. @ASCLS @ASMicrobiology @ASCP_Chicago

#Remdesivir begins distribution in the #USA today via #EUA.

I thought would write down some practical #tips based on my #qualitative anecdotal experience after personally treating close to 200 patients with #COVID19.

For quantitative results, wait for the papers¬—thread
“this juice works, doc!” When you hear similar expressions 1-2 days after starting #remdesivir multiple times, you start to wonder. Don't recall a similar proportion of patients smile after feeling so sick 1-2 days earlier with #COVID19. x/n? Wait for the papers.
Like #treatment for any severe infectious disease (meningitis, Gram-negative bacteremia, influenza pneumonia, etc), earlier is always better. #COVID19 is no different. #Remdesivir stops #SARS-CoV2 replication, but won’t heal the lung injury.
