Okay, so I checked the wastewater again, and it was vastly different. Excluding the latest data, I zoomed again on the same time frame. Upward trends last week are now downward? @GovCanHealth can you please explain?! ImageImageImage
I heard back (thanks @GovCanHealth for being speedy & thorough 💕).

Please see evidence that the Prime Minister lied today when he made his faux apology, and asserted that, he was not aware that he was breaking his own covid rules. Photos attached next, in case this gets deleted. 1/3
This is absolutely conclusive, irrefutable evidence that Boris Johnson has broken the #MinisterialCode, and lied to Parliament. There should be no doubt, that he IS a proven liar, with nothing but contempt for his office and the electorate. He must resign!

Thread: One of the biggest failures of this pandemic has been the public education on facemasks.

My household has 14 paper bags with 14 comfortable well fitting P2 masks. This cost $121.50, to cover 12 months if the masks are used for 40 hours total, 8 hours per day. /1
So an entire family can be protected for a long time by buying a box of 50 P2 facemasks and cycling them each day, and $1.50 paper bags, for $121.50. Or a single person could just buy a pack of 10. /2
But the reason I'm raising awareness of this now, is because we currently have a dual pandemic of 2 highly infectious variants, but only 24% of Australians have completed their 3 doses of the vaccine. It means we need to use... /3

I've been quiet too long.
Today's events were a distraction by our fascist provincial gov't to make people stop talking about:

- millions of rapid COVID tests that they are holding back to enfore a false scarcity to destabilize public health care and promote private health care
our Premier's blatantly false rhetoric that the hostile takeover of ATRF is OK b/c it is backed by public funds when it is not, it's backed by the teacher stakeholders, laws were changed to ensure this #handsoffmypension
.@JustinTrudeau offered premiers help to proactively battle #Omicron on Dec 11 but was told no thanks, using argument that it is provincial responsibly - all deaths from now are squarely on these premiers

The other day, I tweeted about a recent study that adds to a growing body of evidence demonstrating the effectiveness of masks in preventing the spread of COVID-19...

Here it is again--note that it's not a naturalistic or epidemiologic study, but a modeling study based on known information about the penetration of SARS-CoV-2 sized particles through N95/KN95 masks.

Good evening Mr Johnson, just wanted to update you on the “not wearing a 😷in hospitals” thing…

This afternoon I’ve had to give 😷s to 10 people sitting in the heaving ED/MIU waiting rooms.

TEN Prime Minister‼️

X, Decem…

@BorisJohnson @CMO_England @UKHSA @SMHopkins

2 of those 10 MASKLESS ppl were patients with suspected #COVID19.

All said they didn’t have a 😷…(they had to have one to get through reception!)

They were, as you can imagine, less than pleased when I informed them that they MUST #WearAMask when in a hospital, because…
2/
#COVIDisAirborne & there are many sick ppl IN hospitals, OBVS!

#COVID spreads best in crowded, poorly ventilated areas & the damage done to vital public health messaging you alone have done Prime Minister by not wearing a😷, is incalculable!

You don’t have to be a genius to realise that #MasksReduceTransmission of airborne viruses.

During a pandemic it is only the supremely selfish or ignorant who’d refuse to #WearAMask to protect others & deny their own children the right to wear one at school.

#COVIDisAirborne
Insensitive dangerous stuff like this👇🏼has to stop @thismorning @ITV.

I doubt #BeverleyTurner would be so visibly thrilled if she was a parent to one of 108 children who have tragically now died here?

Nailed it @karamballes, never has a “grass roots” parents group been more inappropriately named.

#UsForUs would be far more apt!

These particular parents are the v same people arguing against 😷s & vaccine passports & just about anything we know ⬇️s transmission.
1/5
If they actually cared about children’s health & wellbeing AND wanted to reduce educational disruption, they’d have put their weight & influence behind making 🇬🇧schools safer.
They’ve had months to do it & have wealth & political influence on their side.
So why have they not?
2/
It’s quite obvious now, it’s all about THEIR FREEDOMs & THEIR RIGHTs.

They don’t want to #WearAMask or compromise their social lives, restrict their travel & they certainly don’t want to be involved in home schooling.

1-Hey👋@GillianKeegan yep, I know 😷s aren’t v comfortable when you wear them for hours - WE DO EXACTLY THAT DAY IN DAY OUT!
If you lot would stop behaving like spoilt children those of us trying to keep the #NHS going would have a better chance!

#COVIDisAirborne - oh yes it is!
2-I’ve just finished my 8th day of working out of 9…Not all were full days & yes, I know this is nothing special.

My point is, every single hour was spent wearing a 😷!!

Are you suggesting those of us in healthcare DON’T #WearAMask because IT’s UNCOMFORTABLE?

Really?
3- For the millionth time - #COVIDisAirborne (shouting now😬) - unless we all start accepting this FACT & behaving as if we care… A LOT OF PEOPLE are going to die unnecessarily….!

@Jeremy_Hunt - please can you point your party towards #airborne viral transmission reduction!

1/10🧵 - Tragically, a lack of understanding isn’t the only reason @Conservatives are so #antimask.

YES, some have made ludicrous statements about only STRANGERS being a #COVID risk, including our Secretary of State for Avoidable Ill-Health @sajidjavid ….

@doctor_oxford
2 - Remember this car crash👇🏼interview on @SkyNews last month @sajidjavid ?

Shall we run that particular bit of public health advice past genuine experts like @trishgreenhalgh @dgurdasani1 @chrischirp @devisridhar @martinmckee @GabrielScally & all those at @IndependentSage?
3 - ….and how can we forget @Jacob_Rees_Mogg ‘s hilarious explanation yesterday for the lack of 😷s on the #Tory benches.

Message from a physician who wishes to remain anonymous:

We wanted to help people
We were smart and driven
We loved science and physiology, humans and disease
So we made a commitment
We signed up
It was an honor
We read thousands of pages
Attended hundreds of lectures
1/9
Pulled all-nighters
Took more exams than we thought possible
Finals week felt insurmountable
But it didn’t break us
It made us stronger
We learned statistics and biochemistry
Immunology and pathophysiology
We mastered genetics, virology and pharmacology
2/9
We read scientific papers and learned how to dissect them
Papers, not videos
It was an honor
We came running when you needed us
Literally, running down the hallway
To the ICU, the trauma bay, labor and delivery
I need help, you said
We can help, we said
It was an honor

@naomirwolf 2. don't #WearADamnMask bc of a health reason really have a valid health issue! They feel that the rules don't apply to them! #Entitled! Kids need a note from a dr when they don't go to school! Adults should have a note from a dr to excuse them from wearing a mask!.....
@naomirwolf 3. Did it occur to you that perhaps the shoppers didn't comment on your lack of #Mask bc they were afraid of your reaction. I've been in 1 situation where a dad & his young dau didn't have a mask. I didn't say a word bc I didn't want to start WWIII. But I was seething!.....

@TheView @WhoopiGoldberg Surprised to hear a conversation today using the term, "A new normal" for Covid being so active in the USA. So because of inadequate governors, poor and absent guidelines for the public, the new excuse for the rampant spread of Covid will be this term?
As a nurse, this seems to me to be a level of idiocy and removing the country from the responsibility of the near HALF A MILLION dead from Covid & many of those deaths due to ignoring the fact this has been & is a pandemic. The example of the Super Bowl being held with thousands
gathering both at the stadium and in other public places where no one wore a mask or distanced from strangers and hearing no criticism of this happening, is totally irresponsible and reckless. Will there be a spike in cases in two weeks all over the US again? Sure there will.

Controversial 3D. Probably none of you knows about Leber congenital amaurosis type 10, congenital blindness that affects 3 out of 100,000 children, condemning them to blindness for life. The only possible treatment is through gene therapy. 1/n
Thanks to Crispr-CAS9 technology we MODIFY the defective gene inside the patient eye ( they directly inject the treatment into the eye). Before CRISPR the treatment was based on Adenovirus carrying the correct form of the gene 2/n
clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03…
In both cases, we MODIFY the patient DNA and that's the only way (today) to treat this disease. LCA10 is not the only genetic disease affecting kids unfortunately the list is long and the variety of diseases is terrifying. 3/n

@RepSteveStivers 1. Did you tell @CapitolPolice that a #MetalDetector is #Unconstitutional? Why is it that #WeThePeople have had to go thru 1 when we enter a #FederalBldg for yrs? I've had to be #Screened numerous times! Why is this #Unconstitutional for #GOPMembers but not for #WeThePeople?
@RepSteveStivers @CapitolPolice 2. Talk about a #DoubleStandard! What's good for #WeThePeople is good for all #Politicians! Why is it that @GOP can't do what needs to be done for #CommonGood? #Elitism And #WearADamnMask!

Governments make me laugh!!!

Most Governments, across the world, have implemented severe, strict 'covid restrictions' on their jurisdictions.

#CovidTesting
#Lockdowns
#StayHome
#WearADamnMask
#SocialDistancing
#WashYourHands
#CloseTheSchools
#CloseBusinesses
#CovidVaccine
Covid 'cases' and 'deaths' still increase by the thousands.

Governments double down.

As this occurs, the Governments place harsher restrictions on their citizens.

#Isolation
#CovidCurfews
#ManatoryVaccines
#CovidFines

All these 'covid restrictions and regulations' don't work
Did it ever occur to these Governments that their 'covid strategies' are not the solution?

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!

Meanwhile,

1⃣ Economies crumble
2⃣ Unemployment increases
3⃣ Bankruptcies galore
4⃣ LTC Homes become death traps
5⃣ Mental illness increase
6⃣ $Billion for covid relief

Couldn’t agree with you more @chrischirp!
Today in my local #Medicentre a pharmacist & 2 dispensary workers were chatting & joking w/out a #mask in sight! Then I saw several patients wearing those UTTERLY USELESS nylon #masks which slip/slide & they touch constantly. A 🧵...
And a Pt wearing a surgical mask that appeared to have been worn > 50 times it was so filthy!
We’ve had a whole term where kids haven’t worn #MasksInClassrooms & the anti #mask #keepschoolsopen AT ALL COSTS gang who don’t care 1 jot how many #teachers/families get ill w/ #Covid.
Just remember the vote on #FreeSchoolMeals in Oct!
Virtually EVERY @Conservative MP voted AGAINST this simple & low cost way to feed our most vulnerable children DURING A PANDEMIC!
Now they tell us it’s all about child welfare... I have my doubts!

Considering the very high number of deaths daily in the USA, knowing how millions are going to be still travelling by air to visit and socialize over the holidays, how about reconsidering. This thread is a reality check for if any of these travellers are infected with Covid and
end up dying in an ICU. This is the task of the nurse caring for the patient. At the time of death, a doctor must come to stated the time of death. The nurse writes this in the patient's chart. Either the nurse or the doctor have to then call the family. Rarely will family this
year be allowed to visit. But if they are, it is the nurse's job to talk to them, listen to them and give reassurances about the death if questions are asked; as well giving condolences to the person. Before the family member visits, the nurse has had several tasks. One is to

We've received a lot of questions about the new Executive Orders. We will be issuing more guidance ahead of Friday at 5pm, but many have asked one particular question "Why close indoor and outdoor dining, but not casinos, gyms, and malls?"- A thread #coronavirusbalt
1)First-our COVID-19 case data tells us intervention is required. In July, we were concerned with the rise in cases when our 7-day average was 146 new cases per day and we re-implemented “Phase 1” restrictions.
2) Yesterday, our average was 223 new cases per day.

Okay, #WearADamnMask ... or risk being intubated and proned with a foley, a rectal tube, a trach, a PEG, and a swan in the ICU for weeks, alone & without family members ... and then dying.

Seems a pretty simple choice to me. #WearAMask
To help you with making this simple choice ... a diagram to show you intubation. Does this seem more comfortable to you, than wearing that cloth mask? If yes, please add to that the possibility of adding your own family, friends & associates, to this special treat.

#WearAMask
Even if you don't care about an unpleasant death in an ICU, try to have a microgram of empathy for the overworked underpaid healthcare workers, who must take care of your sorry ass.
