Im Januar meldete der Zoo von San Diego einige Gorillas seien an #covid19 erkrankt, eines der Tiere wurde gar mit Antikörpern behandelt. Im @pandemiapodcast beleuchten wir diese Woche ein wichtiges Phänomen, das selten besprochen wird: Wenn Menschen Tiere infizieren.
@pandemiapodcast Wir bemühen uns bei @pandemiapodcast immer den Blick zu weiten: über Deutschlands Grenzen hinaus, über diese Pandemie hinaus und dieses Mal eben auch über unsere Artgrenze hinaus.
Unsere neue Folge über Menschen, Menschenaffen und Mikroben jetzt hier:
@pandemiapodcast Freut mich besonders, dass wir am #Weltfrauentag die ugandische Tierärztin @DoctorGladys von @CTPHuganda im Podcast haben.
Und Dank auch an @Leendertz_Lab und @GoldbergTony.
@pandemiapodcast @DoctorGladys @CTPHuganda @Leendertz_Lab @GoldbergTony Wir konzentrieren uns meist auf unsere Spezies und vergessen, dass Viren nicht auf Einbahnstraßen unterwegs sind. Wie @GoldbergTony sagt:
“We need to change our views and not see this arrow from the natural world to humans, but rather humans as part of a network of species."
@pandemiapodcast @DoctorGladys @CTPHuganda @Leendertz_Lab @GoldbergTony Und ich mache sowas echt ungern, aber mir liegt @pandemiapodcast sehr am Herzen und ich will das gerne mit meinen tollen Kollegen weitermachen. Darum:
Wenn ihr das Projekt gut findet und es euch leisten könnt, dann überlegt doch mal, ob ihr uns unterstützten wollt.
@pandemiapodcast @DoctorGladys @CTPHuganda @Leendertz_Lab @GoldbergTony Ihr könnt das ganz direkt hier machen über den Klub Pandemia:…
Dann bekommt ihr auch noch zusätzliches Bonusmaterial, dass es nicht in die Episode schafft (in der nächsten Folge geht es unter anderem um Schimpansenwaisen)
@pandemiapodcast @DoctorGladys @CTPHuganda @Leendertz_Lab @GoldbergTony Ihr könnt uns auch indirekt über @riffreporter unterstützten, wo ihr auch alle Folgen finden könnt.
Dann unterstützt ihr gleichzeitig auch andere tolle journalistische Projekte.…
@pandemiapodcast @DoctorGladys @CTPHuganda @Leendertz_Lab @GoldbergTony @riffreporter Ihr könnt uns aber auch ohne Geld unterstützten: Indem ihr nettes Feedback hinterlasst zum Beispiel bei Apple Podcasts oder indem ihr uns Freunden und Bekannten empfehlt, die sich für unseren Podcast interessieren könnten.
So oder so: Danke!

“In many ways, women have suffered disproportionately from the pandemic”, says @DrTedros at @WHO #covid19 presser on #InternationalWomensDay. "We have seen appalling increases in violence against women and reduced access to services for sexual and reproductive health."
@DrTedros @WHO “In relative terms, employment losses have been higher for women than for men”, sas @DrTedros. "Women have also borne an additional and disproportionate burden of care for children and older people.
But women have also been at the forefront of the response."
@DrTedros @WHO "About 70% of all health workers globally are women and they have played a key role in delivering care and saving lives”, says @DrTedros. “But although they make up the majority of the global health workforce, women only hold 25% of leadership roles in health."

"As you know, this was a landmark week for COVAX with the first vaccinations starting in Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire”, says @DrTedros at @WHO presser. "In total, COVAX has delivered more than 20 million doses of vaccine to 20 countries."
@DrTedros @WHO For those keeping score at home, the others are: Angola, Cambodia, Colombia, Democratic Republic of Congo, the Gambia, India, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mali, Moldova, Nigeria, Philippines, South Korea, Rwanda, Senegal, Sudan, and Uganda.
@DrTedros @WHO "This is encouraging progress, but the volume of doses being distributed through COVAX is still relatively small”, says @DrTedros. First round covers 2-3% of population of countries, "even as other countries make rapid progress towards vaccinating their entire population."

“Today, Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire started vaccinating health workers against #COVID19, becoming the first countries to start vaccination campaigns with doses supplied through COVAX”, says @DrTedros at @WHO presser. “A further 11 million doses will be delivered this week"
@DrTedros @WHO Good news, says @DrTedros. “But it's regrettable that this comes almost three months after some of the wealthiest countries started their vaccination campaigns” and that younger, healthier adults are being vaccinated haead of health workers and older people in other countries.
@DrTedros @WHO Number of #covid19 cases globally has increased for first time in seven weeks. “This is disappointing, but not surprising”, says @drtedros. "Some of it appears to be due to relaxing of public health measures continued circulation of variants and people letting down their guard."

Quick update on #B117 in Denmark:
Early data from week 7 (based on 2 days), suggests variant is now causing 57% of cases in Denmark. It was less than 4% in week 1.
And the overall number of #covid19 cases has now started to rise in spite of lockdown.
The reason I keep tweeting these data?
1. Simply to follow through on this story from 3 weeks ago (…).
What we are seeing is exactly what scientists expected and said would happen. It is worth just showing that play out.
2. These data likely mirror situation in many countries, but Denmark has the sequencing operation to actually show what is happening, so it is worth following the situation there for clues.

“Currently, some high income countries are entering contracts with vaccine manufacturers that undermine the deals that COVAX has in place and reduce the number of doses COVAX can buy”, says @DrTedros at @WHO’s #covid19 presser.
@DrTedros @WHO Great that countries are pledging money for buying vaccines, @DrTedros says, echoing comments from earlier today. But: “Money is not the only challenge we face. If there are no vaccines to buy, money is irrelevant."
@DrTedros @WHO "Even if we have the funds, we can only deliver vaccines to poorer countries if high income countries cooperate in respecting the deals COVAX has done, and the new deals, it's doing”, says @DrTedros. “This is not a matter of charity. It's a matter of epidemiology."

A fair, global distribution of #covid19 vaccines, diagnostics and therapeutics is important for public health and moral reasons, but it is also in our own interest, says German president Frank-Walter Steinmeier at virtual joint press conference with @DrTedros.
@DrTedros If we deny the needed solidarity, other countries may well use that vacuum for their own interests, says Steinmeier. “The pandemic is also a geopolitical moment with huge consequences for our future and the role we will play in the world after the pandemic."
@DrTedros Some high-income countries are approaching vaccine manufacturers to secure more vaccines reducing vaccine allocated to COVAX, says @DrTedros. “If you cannot use the money to buy vaccines, having the money doesn't mean anything."
