The vulnerable population or as described "missing populations that have barriers preventing them from reaching the necessary services" are the first ones to worry about and the last ones one should stop being worried about.

This needs to be specifically the core of how things are prioritized in "public health".

The vulnerable and disadvantaged are the ones to be worried about. The ones to be prioritized in any ongoing or future plans of a society as a whole.

If our approach includes putting a patch over the problems in that area so we could "stop" being worried about them, we are doing it wrong.

As you might know, when one stops worrying about a subject, the focus will be shifted to other ones. The ones that might not be a real priority. Sometimes even the ones that are less challenging to deal with. Happens to all of us, right?

At some point, we might be so comfortable with just putting some lousy patches over serious and difficult subjects while being busy with other areas that we might not even notice them.

They don't have a strong voice to draw our attention either.

They might become a non-priority over time. One could also say that the priorities would be set in reverse order.

Then one day in a very difficult situation a bunch of creatures might suggest that the non-priorities might be ignored for a greater good!

Hope you notice we are here speaking about a group of people. The most vulnerable and the most disadvantaged ones.

The ones without a strong voice that we as a society have an obligation to protect the most.

The vulnerable and disadvantaged population are the ones we never should "stop" worrying about.

I need to explain this again that I "truly" believe that this sentence came out wrong by the person who mentioned it. The person I believe actually cares & tries hard to help within the extent of abilities that a person has.

I am yet again addressing a topic not a person

If you ask me, the value of an FDA approval at this moment for me is at the level of CDC and WHO 😉
Hope you understand the level has not elevated or lowered in any recent time.

When we are proposing something, maybe we should remind ourselves about the geographic location.

"Outdoor Learning Programme" seems absolutely fantastic.

Have you been outside, let's say in Autumn? Like ever?

It says when possible though, I see! How many days would that be?🤨
Don't get me wrong. It "is" possible to do such a thing.
Needs a lot of infrastructure and planning though, maybe could be practically ready by next year. (I am being an optimist here)
I thought about this again:
Should it be that the schools stay open (crazy idea IMO, but let's consider it), I'd prefer freezing kids outside than warm kids inside a virus incubator.

So yes, why not

The way Sweden is treating its HCWs is mindblowing. I have a hard time digesting the details.
Pretty sure many of their actions should be called illegal. If you ask me criminal is also a good word choice.
They will either endanger them and as a result also push them to disability or burn out, or lose them by firing them or making them resign. How is this even right?

I see some tweets about how it is likely that very mild restrictions stopped the exponential growth!

My thoughts:
- especially this is an extremely attractive idea that one instantly wants to jump on its side and stay forever, esp when it "seems" nothing is happening.

Here's the issue.
This can be as true as the opposite version-both a guess.

The difference: those minor restrictions won't likely decrease shit. I mean, at this moment it would be pleasant to think like that.

But also it would be easy to get hit too.

This is what I call unrealistic optimism. And no, it is not the optimist fella. It is actually not much of an optimist who is about to jump into a mind trap.

I am hearing too much information that I actually should not!

Seriously people
If one of them sleeps in the living room today, I wouldn't be surprised.
I mean, one should not know the language to understand what is really going on!

But you better really wish you did't know the language!

Du glaubst, Christian Drosten würde in der Coronapandemie Panik verbreiten?
Ich zeig Dir mal, was Panik auslösen kann.

Die Maskenpflicht beim Einkauf schränkt deine Freiheit ein? Dann werde ich dir etwas über persönliche Freiheit und Würde erzählen.

CN: Intensivmedizin ->
Stell Dir vor, Du wirst krank.
Weil du immer mehr Atemnot bekommst, wirst du im Krankenhaus auf die Isolierstation verbracht. Seit Stunden hast du das Gefühl zu ertrinken. Echte Todesangst. Deshalb stimmst du zu, auf intensiv verlegt zu werden. Dein Zustand verschlechtert sich
und die Ärzt:innen beschließen, dass du beatmet werden musst.

Was ab jetzt geschieht, ist nicht für zarte Gemüter geeignet:

Sie machen Dich mit Medikamenten bewusstlos. Dann schieben sie Dir einen etwa daumendicken Schlauch über den Mund an deinem Kehlkopf vorbei bis relativ
