This is insane:
Only 54 percent of district health board staff have had the flu vaccine! Nelson Marlborough District Health Board: just 39 percent of workers had been vaccinated against flu.
If you can prevent infection with something (the flu) that harms kids, older people, pregnant women, and others...and kills some people every year, how can you be a health care worker and not bother getting keep your patients safer?

Of course it should be required
Also this is becoming a trend, increasing/promoting free vaccines *after* a surge/peak
Prevention doesn't work that way.

We knew months ago that this would be a bad flu season, Australia got clobbered.
And yet we changed nothing.

🗓️ vanaf morgen, 11 april 2022, vervalt het algemene advies om voor een #coronatest naar de #GGD te gaan

voor de meeste mensen is een #zelftest voldoende voor testen bij mogelijke COVID19 symptomen

het "zicht op het virus" vervalt daarmee deels

wat blijft:
-Testen bij klachten
-#Isolatie na positieve #COVID19 test
-#Quarantaine na nauw contact (tenzij vaccinatie en aantal andere regels)

#isolatie mag na 5 dagen opgeheven worden, mits 24 uur klachtenvrij, en tot dag 10 voorzichtig zijn 😷


wat verandert:
- wie er nog wél bij de GGD mogen komen testen
- ons #ZichtOpHetVirus 🔎📊

🔊Heads up, at 11am PST we'll look at the new BA.2 #Covid variant, which now accounts for more than 50% of new infections in New York/New England, and almost 35% in California. Join us here @EthnicMediaSvc or via FB @LcacNews @StanfordChild
Welcome to today's briefing, "The BA.2 #Variant Gains Ground: Are We Heading Back to the Future?"
You can follow the discussion on Twitter @EthnicMediaSvc or via FB Live
A question from our moderator @sunita37 on how the BA.2 #variant emerged. "BA.2 is similar to #omicron that shares a common ancestor with #omicron but it is an ancestor that we do not know," says @DrBenNeuman

Nuove varianti e tornano le preoccupazioni, questo thread non vuole essere un riassunto delle varianti attuali ma una GUIDA per districarsi nelle informazioni e per pesarle:


#Covid_19 #Variant #OmicronXE #Omicron #XE #XD
1) questo virus è il più studiato della storia, abbiamo un livello di dettaglio mai visto prima. Moltissime delle informazioni sono estremamente tecniche e difficili da capire e contestualizzare. I migliori scienziati al mondo sono al lavoro sulle varianti --> don't panic
2) i virus naturalmente mutano e lo fanno in continuazione: è nella loro 'natura'. Non dobbiamo stupirci o preoccuparci per una nuova variante, fin quando circolerà, muterà.

Study from @Yale looking at the association between the #Pfizer #COVID19 #vaccine and #SARSCoV2 positivity among 542 adolescents when the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2 was predominant and within 4 months of the vaccine rollout for adolescents showed:
-estimated effectiveness of the #pfizer vaccine was 91%, with 93% protection against symptomatic infections & 85% effectiveness against asymptomatic infection
Conclusion: These findings suggest that the #Pfizer #vaccine was effective in adolescents within 4 months of #immunization, including against infections caused by the #Delta #variant.…

A lot of people around the world are feeling elated & treating emergence of #Omicron as a signal of the end of the pandemic! Most believe it will bring “endemicity".

Does it make sense? 1/
How can anyone think we’ve got this under control when a new #variant suddenly pops up, nearly completely evades immunity & then sweeps the world in a few weeks?
Further, we must know “mutations have no schedule.” Could be 4-6 months, could be next week. 2/
“to what extent will #Omicron-like emergence events characterize "endemic" circulation of #SARS2? Given it occurred once, having it occur again would not be at all surprising,…whether to expect this every year or every ten.” 3/

Latest @WHO #TechnicalBrief on #Omicron
Overall risk remains very high & threat depends on

1⃣Transmissibility of #variant
2⃣How protective vaccines & prior infection are
3⃣Virulence of variant
4⃣Understanding of dynamics & uptake PHSM

Full 🧵👇 (1/)…
Epidemiology (1)
-#Omicron has large growth advantage over #Delta - grows significantly more than Delta in countries with community transmission
- Evidence that immune evasion contributes to rapid spread
-Wk 52, global weekly #COVID19 incidence ⬆️ 71% compared to prior wk
Epidemiology (2)
-Study from HK found #Omicron infects human bronchus tissue faster and better than #Delta
-#UK study found Omicron outcompetes Delta in experiments using cells derived from human nose, but not seen in lung derived cells
-Growth advantage in upper resp tract

OK #Covid_19 #COVID19 #Covid #uspoli #canpoli #ukpolitics #EU #worldpoli are you or one of your family members one of the 1/100 predicted to get severely ill from #Omicron the #COVID19 #Covid_19 #Variant despite being 3-4X vaccinated and following public health advice?
And so it seems world leaders around the globe have finally come together - to declare that 1/100 people with #Omicron experiencing severe disease and/or death is an acceptable number for "a productive economy" - what does that mean if YOU or an at-risk family member is 1/100?
First you must accept the cold hard fact that nobody any longer gives a single solitary flying shit that you or your family member(s) are now after 2 years of "we're all in this together" staring down the very short barrel of a rapidly increased mortality risk from #Omicron.

Government leaders have failed to put the health, well-being & dignity of every resident at the center of our #COVID19 response. Many of us are suffering unnecessarily and every sector is impacted by preventable challenges. 🧵 1/…
This all could have been avoided. Our government leaders could have prioritized the needs of residents rather than protecting special interests and getting lulled into believing that a privatized response would save us. 2/ #mapoli #bospoli
We know how stressed our community members feel, how our nurses & doctors are #burntout, how much our teachers & students want to safely return to the classroom & how worried our parents are for their children and their aging parents, never mind themselves. 3/

1/You have no doubt heard much lately about the recently designated #COVID19 #variant, #omicron.

I would like to distill what we know, what we do not know, and what this all means for you right now.
2/On 11/26/21, the @WHO officially designated B.1.1.529 (#omicron) a "variant of concern."

It cited a "large number of mutations, some of which are concerning" and "preliminary evidence" of "an increased risk of reinfection with this variant.."…
3/In short, scientists are concerned because #omicron exhibits an unusual number of mutations across the #SARSCoV2 genome, with >30 on the spike protein.

The spike is the part of the virus that allows it to gain access to human cells and reproduce. (h/t @_nference)

B.1.1.529 seems to have gone from 0.1% to 50% in just a couple of weeks, when it took Delta several months to achieve that..!!

Brace up folks..!!

Things are getting worrisome folks..!! Read and understand this thread..!!

Summary & presentation markers for what is known about the NEW, VERY CONCERNING #VARIANT B.1.1.529 per South African Ministry of Health live streamed briefing today.
Holiday travel could spread this variant exponentially across the world if countries don’t act fast.
There r 2 international airports in Gauteng, region of Africa hardest hit w/ B11529. Already found in 3 countries so far: Botswana, South Africa & Hong Kong (returning traveller).
8:15- Prime Minister briefing

SA had a big Delta surge over June-July. Case rates since were very low. B11529 causing sudden, early, unanticipated surge, with a high number of cases in Guateng.

There is no gradual slope to that line. Vertical spike.

@PeacockFlu If you want to see where these variations are on the structure, whether protein structures with that variation have been determined and what the effect of the variation might be, have a look at them in Aquaria:…% ImageImage
@PeacockFlu For more info on that tool see…
You can specify variations you want to see mapped onto the structure in the URL.
@PeacockFlu Using Aquaria, you can select a structure co-crystallised with an interaction partner; here we are showing the interaction with ACE2 (top).
In #omicron many of the residues on the interface are mutated (red). ImageImageImage

1. #Travel? #Holidays? #COVID19?

During this #COVID I am going to create a rolling thread about key issues and articles of interest, just so as you can see the evolution toward a return to normality in 2022, 2023, 2024 or 2025; according to predictions by #Aviation!
2. #Travel? #Holidays? #COVID19?

Interesting article about #staycations and their price!!

The attitude of some UK h/makers, is I'm afraid, a common feature found in holidays abroad. I've heard many a tale about the Master vs Serf behaviour of some Brits!…

I despair of being free of the coronavirus.

Not because we lack the tech, but because we lack the will.

Things which make no sense to me, things which seem cruel or outright monstrous and I am forced to ask: why?

Welcome to #SpeakingTheUnspeakable.
• The #pandemic hasn't ended.

#Governments, due to corporate pressures, are forcing people back to work.

• You may be #vaccinated, but you are NOT safe.

• The #coronavirus will last longer, cost more & kill millions more people worldwide.
@FoxNews's #disinformation efforts have proven to be more effective at misleading people than our government has been at leading them.

• Unchecked #misinformation and #socialmedia have been integral to developing the failed rhetoric on the vaccination effort.
