1/ $PVCT’s Modernized #SmallMolecule #RoseBengal: A #DrugSubstance, and #ActivePharmaceuticalIngredient for 21st Century #DrugDevelopment. A THREAD.
2/ “Everyone” seems to know or understand #RoseBengal, but do they (you) really?
3/ #RoseBengal is a small molecule (i.e., <1,000 Daltons*), but a “heavy” one at 973.67 Da or g/mol. It is heavy because of its four iodides, which comprise 52% of its molecular weight.

Van 22 tot 28 mei 2022 wordt in Genève de 75e World Health Assembly (WHA) gehouden. De WHA is een grote internationale bijeenkomst van alle lidstaten van de World Health Organization die fungeert als besluitvormingsorgaan.
Tijdens de WHA wordt over zaken rondom de wereldwijde volksgezondheid vergaderd, met Covid-19 als hoofdonderwerp deze keer.

Waar wij op nationaal niveau langzaam uit het hele Covid-verhaal lijken te stappen is de WHO op internationaal niveau bezig ons aan hen te onderwerpen.
Op de agenda van deze bijeenkomst staan namelijk tal van akelige spreekpunten zoals: "Behavioural science for better health initiative", waar openlijk gesproken wordt over hoe overheden wereldwijd gedragsverandering op hun bevolking hebben toegepast en hoe die te verbeteren.

<Thread> Important critique by top expert @D_P_Fidler.

Fine-grained analysis includes explanation of United States' LEGAL OBLIGATIONS to report to #WHO what it knew about #coronavirus (when the US knew China was covering up "cataclysmic" disease).…
2. My own added thought:

Trump criticized #WorldHealthOrganization for its recommendations on travel bans.

But note several experts took the view that the WHO position was required by the 2005 international rules—which the US helped draft and support.…
3. There are valid criticisms of the #WorldHealthOrganization's handling of China and the coronavirus pandemic.

Fidler's final point is such a smart one.

Trump's approach is squandering the opportunity to have a genuine, independent retrospective review of the WHO's actions.

Un paio di cose sull'articolo pubblicato ieri da Repubblica:

1) La dichiarazione del #WorldHealthOrganization citata precisa che non ci sono ancora prove conclusive che #SARS_COV_2 sia aerotrasportato.
2) In ogni caso, "airborne" si riferisce al contagio via aerosol, che può avvenire nelle vicinanze della persona infetta. In pratica, è possibile che la trasmissione avvenga anche attraverso gocce sotto i 5 micrometri di diametro - quelle prodotte quando parliamo o respiriamo.
Questo è ovviamente uno dei motivi per cui le interazioni sociali sono al momento sconsigliate, ma non significa che si rischia il contagio aprendo la finestra.
