1/ I'm old enough to remember the panic porn from @CBSSports predicting between three and seven college football players would die from #Covid if the season went ahead - a guess based on estimates of the Covid death risk in young people far, far, FAR greater than the real risk...
2/ With a full semester complete, have even seven college students - forget athletes, I mean ALL students - been confirmed coronavirus deaths? Yet the schools are continuing their draconian restrictions and testing policies. Insanity upon insanity.

"I guarantee someone is going to die," Jacobson (Sheldon Jacobson of the University of Illinois) said. "The virus does not discriminate."

I GUAR-AN-TEE IT!

And yes, the virus discriminates. The single most salient fact about the virus is how viciously it discriminates by age.

1/ Let's be clear: those cheery health-care workers saying you should be glad to feel awful after you get a dose or two of the mRNA vaccines because that negative response shows your body is making antibodies and protecting itself from #sarscov2 are telling a half-truth (barely).
2/ In reality, much of the fevers and other immune responses come as the body attacks the lipid envelope protecting the vaccine RNA - and that IN NO WAY helps prime your immune system to recognize the coronavirus. It is a side effect pure and simple...
3/ What proportion of the side effects come from the body's response to the newly created coronavirus spikes (good, at least theoretically) and what proportion from the lipids or other features of the vaccine molecule (bad under any circumstance)?

We don't know...

1/ Hooboy. If you could pick a biotech you DIDN'T want selling a treatment based on unproven technology to billions of people, @moderna_tx would be at the top of the list. Back in 2016 @nature slammed it for refusing to publish peer-reviewed research...

nature.com/articles/nbt.3…
2/ And when people say mRNA technology has been around a while even if the Covid vaccine is new... that's true. The reason it's been around : until OPERATION LET'S GET A VACCINE IN MONTHS NO MATTER WHAT, I mean WARP SPEED, no one had figured out how to make repeated doses safe...
3/ Which is why @moderna_tx was stuck in the vaccine business at all. In the B.C. (Before Covid) era, Big Pharma didn't like vaccines, which are - or should be - one and done treatments. They like drugs dosed over and over again. Then along came the ro!

1/ For the last year, Ireland has had among the hardest #Covid restrictions anywhere. On Dec. 22, it tightened them again - banning all travel between counties, restaurant dining, and on Jan. 1 all home visits (!)

Since then cases have risen 10-fold, a truly parabolic curve...
2/ Yesterday, Ireland reported 8,200 positive tests - equal to ~550,000 in the US.

How can we still be arguing about whether lockdowns work at this point?

Sooner or later, virus gonna virus. And the new strain means it spreads faster among unexposed people...
3/ So places like Ireland are MORE rather than less vulnerable to this kind of event.

1/ Let’s talk about #Covid hospitalizations. Seemingly every day the Covid Tracking Project reports another new high for admitted #Covid patients and the media eagerly (yes, eagerly) reports hospitals in LA and elsewhere are close to collapse.

So what’s really happening?
2/ Okay, let’s look at Arizona. A fair choice - it has more #Covid positive tests and hospitalizations per-capita than any other state. Covid patients fill 60% of its ICU beds. Its hospital executives are sounding alarms. The system must be collapsing, right?

Not exactly...
3/ The first graph is #Covid patients in ICU beds. Scary. They’ve risen almost 10-fold since the low in late September, from ~115 to 1,100. Overall inpatient trends are pretty much the same... ImageImage

1/ Through Dec. 22, with fewer than 1 million doses of the #Covid vaccine given, @CDCgov's vaccine injury reporting system received 307 reports of ER visits and 17 "life threatening" events.

Per dose, that's roughly 50 times the rate of adverse events from the flu vaccine...
2/ In 2019-2020, about 175 million flu vaccine doses were given. 1220 ER visits and 73 "life threatening" events were reported. The data is on the CDC VAERS Website.

Caveats: physicians et al may be more diligent about reporting #Covid vaccine events, since the vaccine is new...
3/ And the data is theoretically updated through Friday Jan. 1, which would be a much higher denominator. However, I believe it is correct to use Dec. 22 as the last date for Covid adverse events because I cannot find any later reports in the system...

How can anyone even argue it? Vaccinating health-care workers first is INSANE as policy. It only makes sense as theater - in two ways. First, it (theoretically) creates momentum for mass adult vaccinations - look, those smart health-care workers did it, now we’ll do it...
Second, because the people most at risk from #Covid (80 and over in assisted living facilities) die so frequently in any case, a lot of them will die shortly after being vaccinated even if the vaccine doesn’t do them any harm (and it may). This obviously will look bad...
As all the outlets that have screamed endlessly about #Covid death counts will have to explain these people were sick to begin with, the vaccine didn’t really kill them, etc (we already see some of this). Which in turn will raise uncomfortable questions about our #Covid counts...
