Railing against government and vaccinations ain't new.

From 1893.

Per this fellow, smallpox vaccine was a lie. Promised 100% protection, but people still caught it!

Per him, it was just a big set-up by the rich! Big Pox, he'd likely have called it, if today.
Per him, everyone interested in vaccines got paid. It was all about the pounds.
Per him, The Times was full of lies.
Per him, death certificates had been faked. (Shout out Florida!)
In response, pointed out to him that medicine stood to gain more letting the epidemic run than selling vaccines

[ed. interesting argument, that]
Response continues with a series of statistics showing smallpox death 2000/1,000,000 dropped to 80 or so / 1M after vaccination if strictly enforced.
And then, this

**absolutely brilliant gem**

that small-pox in the air.
Anyway I have things to do but you see, the wheel turns, and everything old is new again.

From 1893.

(That was actually just me cleaning browser bookmarks, and I clicked a link. Enjoy your day!)

Virus is in the air and moves like smoke.


Stay safe.

[If all risk factors are the absolute highest they can be] "then this COULD be a scenario where a worker MAY wish [to ask for an N95]"

The seething disdain of these ppl for health-care workers oozes right off the page.

They can't even hide it.

Oh it's a meta-study.

Stupid me, of course it is. Exclude for bias/low quality the stuff you don't like.

Mind releasing all your emails on point so we can check?

Just github em that'll be fine.
Truth is always in the emails.

Anyway, WHO's guidance was clear: 1m would keep people safe bc droplet.

June 2020 they said could not _rule out_ airborne (see pic).

WHO is destroying its credibility with this garbage.

And funding biased anti-air studies to.
Reminder Tedros' Feb 2020 remarks were actually pretty spot on.

A more virulent virus is seen to infect at longer range etc thus gets called "airborne" in the epidemiology sense. His whole paragraph was accurate.

Whole thing.

People who say "nuanced" these days are usually just lying to you.
1. We could have been warning people, as _regular people_ could see, at the outset

2. SEPARATELY, we could have been warning them based on the precautionary principle.

3. THIRD, these people are flat out right now lying for PR reasons.
If they really felt that this was in the air they would have said so long ago.

The reality is the WHO was logjammed at committee and couldn't control it. An absolute shambles.

Others did not know at the outset, and derive personal benefit from the WHO so would not deviate.

I don't care enough to find it, but someone once said "whether it's airborne will get sorted out later"

They also in mid-2020 authored this: ImageImage
I can tell you if anyone wants to look more deeply (I couldn't be bothered) here are the bits to look at:

Infection rate def higher.

CFR would be interesting to research. Image
Agree, strong efforts. Check hospital spread. Likely high. Image

A quick thread.

Literally, because I opened this PDF.

Viruses able to be spread by airborne can also spread over short.
