Unbelievable Topsy Turvy Info: #Covid19

Here's another maligned tweet @Potus. 👇
Check this out:

The crooked #vaccinedeepstate needs to resign to get away from you. NOT because they're greedy swamp creatures who manufacture epidemics for a living.
Hey #Fauci #Birx

Resign not because you #birx were involved in the HIV tainted blood scandal or you #fauci arguably KNEW you were poisoning Floridians over manufactured #Zika. Yeah,, resign b/c of @Potus. Whatever. JUST RESIGN. #Vaccinedeepstatedown.…

Can a #COVID19 infection during pregnancy lead to infection of the fetus?
A mix of suspicious case reports and scientifically inaccurate articles have muddled this area.
Actually, SARS-CoV-2 doesn’t even need to infect the fetus to harm neurodevelopment.
A thread…..1/10
One study was titled, “Vertical transmission of COVID19…” and based on finding SARS-CoV-2 RNA on the “fetal side” of the placenta.
No, no, no.…
If we are talking vertical transmission, the "fetal" side is within the chorionic villous and ideally inside the fetal blood vessels.

The authors showed staining of syncytiotrophoblasts - the outer covering of the villous, but not staining inside the villous core.

It's time to get over your cognitive dissonance & comprehend that #covid19 is a trojan horse.

Seen as useless eaters, humans are being POISONED in subtle insidious sublethal ways all the way to our DEATH.
#ZIKA was another manufactured crisis using the Hegalian Dialectic & #NIH (#fauci) & #WHO arguably KNEW.

Same Storybook. Different Plandemic.

Imagine being sprayed unknowingly!

"So when #Zika first came .. there was no designated Zika $$," says #Fauci

What did he do until more funding arrived?

4 Things Mainstream Media Won’t Tell You About Zika by @maryamhenein 2016…
Sound familiar?

In record time, the mosquito-born Zika reportedly spread to 3 dozen countries, and health organizations are now predicting it may infect as many as three to four million people within a year.
What did THIS epidemic help spur on with its Hegalian Dialectic 3-prong step of Problem. Reaction. Solution?

One of many: accelerating the Zika vaccine. (#Obama issued at least 1.3 billion to advance researchers.…

Global shifts in mammalian population trends reveal key predictors of virus spillover risk. Out in Proc Royal Society B @RSocPublishing @CKreuderJohnson @EpiCenterUCD @PREDICTproject @OneHealthUCD @ucdavisvetmed @LairmoreDVMDean @NIH…
Co-authors include @petaleeh @PanditPranav, @SmileyTierra, Julie Rushmore, Cristin Young, and Megan Doyle. The study was supported by @PREDICTproject and @NIH
The study concludes that the exploitation of natural habitats is not only a conservation issue, but an important driver of spillover transmission zoonotic viruses. Here is a thread that discusses three key points highlighted from study.

Brilliant talk by Phill James @Grounded_circus on #SARSCoV2 genome sequencing using @nanopore sequencing. Giving humanity hope in these dark times. Here I will share some information from the talk. Thread.👇
Why #Nanopore for Sars-Cov2 genome sequencing? @nanopore sequencing allows us to do real-time sequencing cost-effectively and with low instrument cost. In the #COVID19 context, it can help us monitor the #coronavirus spread and vaccine efficacy.
.@nanopore was used before for monitoring other viral outbreaks, such as #Ebola:… and #Zika:…

@Thomasmarkelly @thehowie @DemFromCT I am opposed to widespread use of meds or med combos tested in only a small number of patients and in non-controlled trials. Rationale for these drugs is based, again, on small and non-randomized studies looking at HCQ for #MERS and macrolides for #Ebola and #Zika
@Thomasmarkelly @thehowie @DemFromCT There is some in vitro activity of chloroquines against #COVID19, but in vitro activity doesn’t always equate to in vivo
@Thomasmarkelly @thehowie @DemFromCT So far, based on these small cohorts, this drug combo has only been shown to reduce duration of symptoms, like Tamiflu does for influenza.

Watching #Pandemic on @CNN right now - produced in 2017 about #SARS #MERS #H1N1 #HIV & other infectious diseases...and our failure to learn from previous pandemics is concerning. #unseenenemy
Some very interesting points about the #ethics of forcible #vaccination (done in order to eradicate smallpox), the role of rumors undermining authorities, especially in the age of social media & the immediate leap to close borders after the + diagnosis of 1st #ebola case in #US.
With the 2014-6 #Ebola outbreak, I wonder what combination of the 90% mortality rate or the point of origin played in the lack of resistance to enforced quarantine for those returning from abroad?

During disease outbreaks 🦠, like #COVID19 (#SARSCoV), there is often a lot of speculation about mutations 😱.

@edwardcholmes, @MaryPetrone10, and I argue that we shouldn't worry.

Here's why👇
@edwardcholmes @MaryPetrone10 @NatureMicrobiol 2/n Mutation to many implies a significant transformation. See the X-Men or just about any outbreak movie. This pushes some to view mutations in the fictional context rather than a natural state of evolution.

@edwardcholmes @MaryPetrone10 @NatureMicrobiol 3/n With the competitive online journalism market, we get bombarded with stories about dangerous mutations and doomsday scenarios for the current #COVID19 outbreak.

For example…

Det är svårt att föreställa sig om det som sker i Kina. Uppenbarligen samlar de in dissidenter. All internet trafik är spärrad utom de källor som kommer via den kinesiska staten. Det som pågår i Kina angående #Coronavirus är en krigshandling av främmande makt.
Det här viruset är
gjord av människan. Ryssland, Indien, Taiwan vet att viruset innehåller HIV.

Därmed är skiten tillverkad av människan. Det sägs att den slår hårdare mot kinesiska män än mot andra raser, vilket betyder att denna "attack" kommer ej från deras egna led.

Fortsättning följer.

We've updated our transmissibility assessment for #nCoV2019! R_0 estimates (based off of publicly reported confirmed cases through 1/26/20 & subject to change) remain ~stable, now ranging from 2.0 to 3.1.

Pre-print will be updated soon:…

See thread below.
On January 24, this study […] provided onset data for the first 41 cases & back-dated the start of the outbreak to December 1 (instead of December 8, as we'd thought before due to the WHO […]). Our estimates now include these data.
Because of the ~1 day delay in reporting, we were able to incorporate these new data starting with our estimates on January 23 onward. There was an initial dip (though still within initial bounds) in our R_0 range, likely due to back-dating, on January 23. It's since stabilized.

🚨 My latest #Zika research is out today in Lancet Infectious Diseases!🚨


TL;DR: Zika, as a disease, is not what we think it is

There's lots of minor analyses, but I'll be going through the main argument

Quick note: Today I'll be discussing cases of Zika that occurred in 2-14 year olds

Although the paper has implications for Zika in childhood & adulthood, the paper does not explore Zika virus infections in utero. So it does not examine microcephaly, congenital Zika, etc

Context: Zika is thought to resemble a mild case of dengue, generally exhibiting symptoms like fever, rash, joint pain, muscle pain, conjunctivitis, & edema. Afebrile Zika is supposedly uncommon, and Zika is thought to exhibit the same symptoms regardless of a patient's age

#Dengue is currently the fastest spreading mosquito-borne viral disease in the world.
@WHO_Europe @WHOAFRO @pahowho @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @WHOSEARO Pakistan 🇵🇰 is battling one of the worst #dengue outbreaks the country has experienced. Over the past months, thousands of patients have been admitted to hospitals with headache, muscle pain & high fever, all classic symptoms of dengue.
@WHO_Europe @WHOAFRO @pahowho @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @WHOSEARO The #Dengue outbreak in 🇵🇰 is blamed to the prolonged monsoon rains🌧️, which promote ideal breeding grounds for Aedes mosquitoes that carry the virus and thrive in warm, humid conditions, laying their eggs in used tires, flowerpots, tree holes & any water-filled container.

A technique that sterilizes male mosquitoes🦟 using radiation will soon be tested as part of global health efforts to control diseases such as #chikungunya, #dengue, and #Zika.
The Sterile Insect Technique is a form of insect birth control. It involves rearing large quantities of sterilized male 🦟🦟 in dedicated facilities & then releasing them to mate with females in the wild. As they do not produce any offspring, the insect population ⬇️ over time.
.@TDRnews and @iaeaorg, in partnership with @FAO and WHO have developed guidance for countries that have expressed interest in testing the Sterile Insect Technique for Aedes mosquitoes.

Bueno, pues ya se ha acabado #AVEDILA2019. De regreso en el tren puedo dar más detalles de la charla que he dado esta mañana, y de la que ya tuiteé un avance en este hilo:

...en la globalización (movimientos de personas, animales y mercancías por todo el mundo de forma rápida e intensiva) y el calentamiento global. En este gráfico de la NASA () se puede apreciar la evolución de éste último en 100 años:

🚨 We used travel surveillance and genomic epidemiology to detect an unreported #Zika outbreak at an unexpected time.

Felt more like writing a detective novel 🕵️‍♂️🔎 than a scientific article...

“Zika files: case of the missing outbreak”

Tl;dr ▶️ watch the video abstract 👀

Our story started in 2016 by following local and travel case reports wanting to know when the Zika epidemic would be over.

We found this interesting spike in travel-related Zika cases from the Caribbean in 2017, when local cases were waning 🧐

Mosquitoes 🦟 can get infected with #Zika virus 🦠 by breeding is sites where infected people peed 🚽?

WTF? I can't even... 🤔
2/n Ugh, so many questions, that (reluctantly) I think that this requires a thread.

Here's a direct link to the paper is you want to play along at home.👇…
3/n My first question - is Zika virus even f-ing infectious from urine, and if so, for how long? Welp, I guess it is - for about a day at 28C (longer at 37C).

The moment an unverified news report emerges on #NipahVirus , well-manicured @WhatsApp messages begin circulating. Is all of this linked to @BillGates so-called warning, which actually is his push for his next #Vaccine product…
Look at these well-made images circulated immediately after the news report on the #NipahVirus
@MoHFW_INDIA must watch out for this new game that @BillGates is playing.
@ashwani_mahajan I hope you are watching!
Same story played out with #Ebola and #Zika
Stage 1 - Few cases reported
Stage 2 - Scare amplified by @BillGates PR machine
Stage 3 - Amplify fear with "There Is No Vaccine" PR

Timothy J. Cunningham, ScD. Team Lead, Division of Population Health. Mid thirties, close relationship with sister, and parents. Named "ATL top 40 under 40." Worked on Ebola and Zika. Missing since February 12. Left work early, not feeling well.…
Body found with running shoes and 3 crystals in his pocket. A preliminary cause of death is listed as "drowning." CNN headline reads "No signs of foul play." On the morning of his disappearance, he tried to text his mother "Are you awake" at 5:21AM and called her at 9:12AM.
2. I run the Chattahoochee a lot. It's a wide river with lots of developed shore trails. How do you leave work sick, wake up early, go jogging with 3 crystals in your pocket, then jump in the river in February to drown? Why is this headlined as "not a sign of foul play?" #Qanon
