Michigan confirmed new hospitalizations for #COVID19 has soared an alarming +43% in just one week!

It’s now more than double the national US per 100 bed rate (12 vs 5).

Nursing home staff cases also up +8% in one week. Positivity up 4% points in one week. Not good.
2) Moreover, hospital admissions among 18-39 year olds are also up substantial % in the last 2 weeks (see dark orange below).

3) Here is Michigan cases now versus one month ago... huge surge. #COVID19
4) Hospital admissions for #COVID19 now versus 1 month ago. Pretty worrisome.

⚠️Over 1 in 7, or 1.1 million people now suffer #LongCovid in the U.K. 🇬🇧

📌~14% who got #COVID19 in UK study suffer persistent symptoms at 12 weeks.

📌29% of all #LongCovid are under age <35

📌Top 2 occupations: healthcare workers & teachers.🧵

2) Frontline healthcare workers are among the largest group affected. Teachers are the next largest group.
3) To be clear, although 4.3 mil UK residents have confirmed #COVID19, & 1.1 mil have #LongCovid symptoms, it’s not 25% because the 1.1 mil were picked up via a survey captureing asymptomatic cases, hence 14%. That said, #LongCovid in symptomatic cases is likely higher than 14%. Image

New 50% efficacy study of Brazil-predominant vaccine CoronaVac (by Sinovac) in Manaus 🇧🇷 among healthcare workers when #P1 ~75% dominant. Not a trial, but the study found a 1st dose >=14-days efficacy of 50% on symptomatic #COVID19, ~32% if +asymptomatic. medrxiv.org/content/10.110… Image
2) Sorry I meant ~35% if asymptomatic included with the symptomatics. But it’s not significant. Wide CIs.
3) Sinovac’s CoronaVac efficacy is all over the board. It was 50% for 2 dose efficacy in a Brazil trial, but it had 91% efficacy in early Turkey trial, and 65% in an Indonesia trial.

Let this sink in—over **half of all intubated young adults** on ventilators now dies from #COVID19 in Brazil 🇧🇷. What’s odds last spring 2020? 1 in 3.

That is likely an effect of #P1 variant—not just ICU capacity because March 2021 wasn’t included yet. 🧵

(HT @terrence_mccoy) Image
2) What about overall chance of dying if intubated in Brazil 🇧🇷 hospital recently? 72.8%. Last spring—60%. Image
3) Brazil’s crisis is almost unimaginable. Brazil’s 4000+ deaths a day is significant - even though Us is 50% larger in population, Brazil 🇧🇷 is much much younger in age distribution compared to a much more elderly US pop. Thus it’s not just equal to 6k US—Brazil likely worse.

🏒New—25 hockey players and staff of NHL Vancouver @Canucks team are now confirmed positive for #COVID19. All cases traced to a single source, which is an variant awaiting formal confirmation which type (previously #P1 mentioned by multiple reporters). 🧵 nhl.com/canucks/news/c… Image
2) “An ongoing investigation by Vancouver Coastal Health and club contact tracing staff attributes the source infection to a single individual obtained in a community setting, which has since been identified by public health as a public exposure location.
3) “The Canucks are grateful for the continued support of local public health officials, the NHL and NHLPA and encourage everyone to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by following health orders. COVID-19 infections are rising in BC.

Disgusting—While Brazil 🇧🇷 had 4000+ #COVID19 deaths yesterday, Bolsonaro today decided to bash LGBT on HIV, claims there’s no vaccine for all the world, none in Africa (false—many vaccine trials done in 🇿🇦), & continues to push unproven drug therapies.

2) There is a reason why I said “Brazil is like a Fukushima, it can put the whole world at risk”. theintercept.com/2021/04/05/ent…
3) I agree with @MiguelNicolelis — Brazil’s COVID crisis is like a Fukushima disaster that is going out of control.

📍HUGE STUDY—One in 3 #COVID19 survivors received a neurological diagnosis within 6 months of infection—1 in 8 with first ever diagnosis, says study of 230,000 patient records. Also COVID patients had higher risk of dementia, anxiety, Parkinson’s vs flu.🧵
2) Across all patients, #COVID19 infected (vs other respiratory infections) yielded higher risk for these diagnoses:

📌brain hemorrhage
📌ischemic stroke
📌Myoneural/muscle disease
📌Substance use
📌Parkinson’s (vs RTI)
3) Moreover, the higher risks are not just for hospitalized patients. Even in **non-hospitalized #COVID19**, higher risks of these outcomes were still found:

Any brain hemorrhage
Ischemic stroke
Parkinson’s (vs flu)
Nerve disorders
Substance use
