Cool paper detailing what body sites, cell types, symptoms #COVID-19 has been connected to thus far 👉 But one thing: everyone knows that most persistent #viral (and #bacterial) pathogens are capable of #infecting/driving an equally extensive # of #symptoms, right?
2/ For example, in this interview, Dharam Ablashi (who co-discovered the #virus HHV6) explains how HHV6 has been shown capable of contributing to #cancers, type 1 #diabetes, Hashimoto’s, #MS, HPA-axis dysregulation, ME/CFS, Alzheimer’s, neuroinflammation..microbeminded.com/2020/06/28/int…
3/ ..and that the HHV6 can survive in
#microglia, astrocytes, macrophage, neurons/nerves, #pancreatic islet cells, the lung, gut epithelial cells, the #liver etc etc etc!

So remember when I wrote this thread in an effort to explain why, coming from a mechanism of action perspective, #hydroxychloroquine (#HCQ) for #COVID-19 should be administered with #zinc?
2/ Well, this NYU preprint explains how the team performed a retrospective observational study to compare #hospital outcomes among patients who received #HCQ + azithromycin + #zinc vs. HCQ + azithromycin alone for COVID-19: medrxiv.org/content/10.110…
3/ They found that addition of #zinc sulfate to the #drug combo increased the frequency of patients being discharged home, and decreased the need for #ventilation, admission to the #ICU, and mortality or transfer to hospice for patients who were never admitted to the ICU.

Cool new study which found that a range of #pathogens (some capable of long-term persistence in tissue + #blood) upregulate expression of the cell surface protein CD47 in the host cells they infect as an #immune evasion strategy
2/ I fact, upregulation of CD47 is a very smart survival strategy by such pathogens, b/c it interferes w/ the host innate immune response that is normally supposed to identify, target and kill them!
3/ Specifically the team found that upregulation of CD47 by the pathogens under study slowed uptake of dead/#infected cells by the #immune system, including the downstream activity of #antigen presenting cells that are needed to recognize pathogens in the first place

sebelumnya mohon maaf bukan maksud menakut nakuti, bberapa waktu lalu sempat #Viral,berita fotografer yg dapat job pemotretan nikahan, tapi alamat yg didatangi gak jelas, dan saat ketemu justru ke arah kuburan/rumah kosong. Kejadian ini hampir mirip dengan yang terjadi di Daerah
Jawa timur, wilayah Kabupaten Blitar sisi barat. Untuk anak 90-an pasti mendengar cerita ini, sebab kejadiannya membuat heboh Desa kami. Ini terjadi sudah lama sekali, saat kamera masih menggunakan "Klise"(belum ada memory card) dan yg saat itu ngetrend masih hp 6600 😅. Waktu

1. Mandated #MRNA vaccines are coming. fool.com/investing/2020… The fear campaign of #Covid19 has failed. People are not scared any longer of #Covid, but that's not the problem anymore and truthfully Covid never was.
2. The problem is now that #Covid failed and you are
seeing this chess game of #totalitarian control unfold,
let me tell you what is really coming. If this is a
#mandatoryvaccine campaign and it gets rolled out
rapidly, you better be aware, educated and terrified.
3. #Globalists in the next 2-3 months will magically find the
cure for #Covid and roll it out in a mass #vaccination
campaign. This #vaccine is #MRNA vaccine. This roll out
will come out very fast for two reasons.

@jenbrea Jen what you say resonates w/ me, and one additional thing I find frustrating abt this pandemic is that Anthony Fauci involvement with the #ME/CFS outbreaks in the USA played a considerable role in the illness being deemed psychomatic in the first place
@jenbrea 2/ As detailed in the book Osler’s Web by @oslersweb, Steven Strauss headed the main lab at the NIAID charged w/ studying #ME/CFS during most of the #outbreaks (including the large outbreak in Tahoe Nevada)
@jenbrea @oslersweb 3/ Partly b/c many women got sick w/ ME/CFS during the outbreaks, Strauss was one of the biggest drivers of the (incorrect!) theory that ME/CFS was due to hysteria and was a psychosomatic rather than biological illness

1/ THREAD: #COVID19 in Children

The recent deaths of children in the #USA and #UK have been particularly concerning to me.

Previously, children were getting infected, but their disease course was mild or completely asymptomatic.
2/ See studies:

1/ I don’t know if many Americans have actually seen the numbers.
As of today, we have 74,810 #American deaths.
Total Global deaths are 265,885*
worldometers.info/coronavirus/

The #USA makes up 28.1% of ALL global deaths from #COVID19

*Without true transparency from #China

But WHY?
2/ #SARSCoV2 does not have a particular affinity for #Americans.

No.

Even Northern #Italy, who was overrun, has fought it back.
New York is almost like a separate country.
Excluding #NewYork from our data, cases in ALL other states are increasing.

nytimes.com/interactive/20…
3/ #NewYork and other countries have proven that fighting the virus is possible.
#HongKong, #NewZealand, #Korea, #Germany, #Greece, even the #CzechRepublic have stopped the spread, and all with different strategies.

I see some MDs/scientists dismissing #hydroxychloroquine as a potential treatment for #COVID-19 and that may be short-sighted. That's b/c studies on hydroxycholoroquine thus far haven’t considered a central mechanism of action by which the drug might help patients with COVID-19
2/ As far as I can tell, the main rationale for treating #COVID-19 with #hydroxychloroquine is this: chloroquine (a drug similar to hydroxychloroquine) was shown, in the lab, to be a zinc ionophore:
journals.plos.org/plosone/articl…
3/ A zinc #ionophore is a compound that, in simple terms, creates a channel in the outer membrane of cells that allows #zinc to more easily move from the outside of the cell to the inside (it can help increase levels of intracellular zinc)

1/ THREAD 7: Viral Latency and a Hematogenous Route to CNS?

Is it even conceivable that #SARSCoV2 could establish latency in sensory ganglia (like trigeminal ganglia in HSV1) and reactivate to cause recurrent disease as respiratory droplets could enter the eyes, nose, and mouth?
2/ Specifically, talking about the peripheral nerves of the eyes, nose and mouth here. And thinking along the lines of why clinicians are seeing the loss of smell and altered taste in so many patients. Please remember, I am not a #virologist or an infectious disease specialist!
3/ HYPOSMIA DATA:
Both the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery AAO-HNS and ENTUK have classified loss of smell and altered taste as significant symptoms in #COVID19. #Covid19UK

Thank you @PlzSolveCFS for including me this video that helps people better understand the devastating and debilitating disease #ME/CFS: m.youtube.com/watch?v=LPUxt3… Image
2/ A growing body of evidence indicates thst #ME/CFS involves neuroinflammation, possibly connected to the activity of #viral pathogens capable of persisting in the central nervous system (CNS): frontiersin.org/articles/10.33…
3/ There have been dozens of #ME/CFS #outbreaks over the years, many connected to #enteroviruses, coxsackie #viruses and even respiratory viruses (w/ enterovirus found in the brain of patients via autopsy in some cases) Image

1/ Given my interactions with @ASlavitt and @jeremyfaust yesterday, I decided to make a compiled list of data on asymptomatic transmission. This is not complete, but the most striking data I have seen on #COVID19 and #SARSCoV2 worldwide.

Thread . Lots of positive energy towards #ContactTracing from the tech sector, but not sure we need more/better apps for #COVID19 #ContactTracing is much more than just maps, which we also have plenty of. Hybrid tech:human approaches are essential. #ClickandMortar
Identifying and mapping #contacts is a core goal of #ContactTracing but there are important details that cannot be scraped from passive location & interaction data such as the specific nature of the contact individuals, disease and clues about #viral load & infectious dose
These details cannot be adequately determined without collecting data that would clearly be an invasion of #privacy unless adequate #InformedConsent is utilized with EVERY subject and #contact.

Lessons from past #coronavirus & #influenza #epidemics suggest that #viral #infections can trigger acute coronary syndromes, arrhythmias, exacerbation of heart failure owing to a combination of a significant systemic inflammatory response plus localized vascular inflammation.
#COVID19 may either induce new cardiac pathologies &/or exacerbate underlying cardiovascular diseases. A large proportion of patients have underlying cardiovascular disease &/or cardiac risk factors. Factors associated with mortality include male sex, advanced age, comorbidities.
Acute cardiac injury determined by elevated high-sensitivity #troponin levels is commonly observed in severe #COVID19 cases & strongly associated with mortality. Acute respiratory distress syndrome is also strongly associated with mortality in patients with #SARSCoV2 infection

I study the illness #ME/CFS - a neuroinflammatory condition that usually begins w/ a #viral infection (sometimes a #respiratory infection!). I have argued for years that infecting #pathogens tied to the illness might persist in the central nervous system (CNS) of such patients
2/ While I realize this article is talking about acute #infection and #COVID19 - it explains that #SARS-CoV-2 “might infect neurons, raising questions about whether there could be effects on the brain that play a role in patients’ deaths:”
the-scientist.com/news-opinion/l…
3/ Matt Anderson, (one of my favorite Beth Israel pathologists!) states, “Some of the purely respiratory symptoms that you might attribute to the #disease, the inability to get air into the #lungs, might actually be defects in #respiration controlled by the #nervous system.”
