Just out: a 3-parts series with @JannesvanRoermu on #Covidpass #Covidcertificate We’ve been digging deeper in its links to #FunctionCreep and E-id. Bonus material: @RecheckHealth received a leak on what happens with our data when tested/jabbed #CovidGesetzNein #CovidGesetzJa (1/)
What distinguishes #FunctionCreep from innovation: it involves a qualitative change in functionality. One of the possible function creeps for #Covidpass #Covidcertificate coincides with the agenda of powerful interest groups. #privacy #dataprotection re-check.ch/wordpress/en/f…
Meanwhile, in Switzerland @BAG_OFSP_UFSP claims #COVIDcertificate is stored only locally in the App on your smartphone: "Neither personal data nor the certificates are stored in a central system”. A leak and further research showed: it's more complicated than that #UVCI (3/)

Just out: the second episode of our series with @JannesvanRoermu on #Covidpass #Covidcertificate #FunctionCreep. A maze of players work to make e-ID systems implemented worldwide and some are now surfing the #COVID19 crisis to make it happen. #CovidGesetzNein #CovidGesetzJa (1/)
Experts in the field of #surveillance and E-ID @whatsthatdata @Biometricstate explain: “The smartphone is now a vector of truth in the context of citizenship and health status and it is becoming a vehicle for economic recovery and stimulation too” #FunctionCreep #CovidPass (2/)
#CovidPass #CovidCertificate carries risk of #FunctionCreep because it coincides with the agenda of powerful interest groups. Since 2020 private and state actors present the implementation of the #Covid19 certificate as a gateway to wallet for digital identity (e-ID). (3/)
@EU_Commission @CharlesManoury told us: "The template made available to member states to store EU #Covid19 certificate is the first form of what can evolve into full-fledged #digitalwallet. Work with member states on this issue will continue in the coming months" #CovidPass (4/)
We also talked with @HEaLInsti_FMES about #Aadhaar the largest biometric identification system in the world, now linked to all sorts of data and systems “Without it, you can’t even get a passport anymore”. E-ID #biometrics #surveillance #Covid19 #CovidPass #FunctionCreep

Soeben erschienen: ein 3-Teiler mit @JannesvanRoermu über #Covidpass #Covidzertifikat Wir haben nachgehakt, Zusammenhänge mit #FunctionCreep und E-Id gefunden. @RecheckHealth hat einen Leak gekriegt um was mit unsere Daten passiert #CovidGesetzNein #CovidGesetzJa (1/) Image
Was #FunctionCreep von Innovation unterscheidet ist die qualitative Veränderung der Funktionsweise. Einer der möglichen Function Creeps für das #Covidzertifikat überschneidet sich mit der Agenda von mächtigen Interessensgruppen #Privacy #Datenschutz #digsec Image
Unterdessen behauptet @BAG_OFSP_UFSP das #Covidzertifikat #CovidPass sei nur lokal in der App der Smartphone gespeichert. Ein Leak und weitere Recherchen haben gezeigt: es stimmt nicht. #UVCI #transparenz #digsec >> re-check.ch/wordpress/fr/f… Image

Investigation by our @serenatinari on @BMJ_latest The @EMA_News Covid-19 vaccine leak show that some early commercial batches of Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine had lower than expected levels of intact mRNA, prompting wider questions about how to assess this novel vaccine platform 1/4
@EMA_news was victim of a cyberattack, the material delivered to journalists and academics. EMA was concerned about manufacturing not producing vaccines to the specifications expected, and unsure of the implications of low mRNA integrity on the vaccine safety and efficacy. 2/4
@BMJ_latest @serenatinari piece on mRNA integrity in Covid-19 vaccines raises questions about the lack of transparency. Companies and regulators said to the journal the specification limit acceptance criteria are commercially confidential @RecheckHealth 3/4

1/3 Just out: @RecheckHealth analysis and commentary Der seltsame Fall / le cas étrange / the Strange Case of the Swiss National COVID-19 Science Task Force @SwissScience_TF. Open access in Deutsch / Français / English. re-check.ch/wordpress/fr/s…
2/3 @SwissScience_TF is a group of scientists acting as a consultant to the Swiss authorities on #COVID19. Only his president should be talking to the media; is it really the case? And what are the rules of engagement of this very special board? @RecheckHealth
3/3 @RecheckHealth filed several #FOIA, and analysed ten months of communication and scientific work of the Swiss National COVID-19 Science Task Force. Spoiler alert: Houston, we have a problem. #transparenzstory #Öffentlichkeitsgesetz #PandemicScience #EBM

1/9 Has #Gardasil approval ushered in an era of #overprevention? @RecheckHealth’s @CatherineRiva published on @thejospi an intriguing, original research piece co-signed by MD Jean-Pierre Spinosa: jospi.org/article/18180-… #HPV
2/9 The article tracks back the approval history of the first vaccine to have been granted the FDA’s accelerated approval and fast track. @CatherineRiva and MD @gipispinosa combined published documents with DAPs and correspondence obtained with a #FOIA #Gardasil #HPV
3/9 The authors of @thejospi piece sought to understand how the evaluation criteria were selected during #Gardasil approval and the impact of the FDA experts’ choices on the quality of the available evidence about the vaccine’s efficacy. #Gardasil #HPV

Care to kick off the New Year with a TWEETORIAL? Our humble homage to @VPrasadMDMPH will walk you through the evidence on #HPV vaccines and what @Cochranecollab made of it. Let’s first agree on one thing: RCTs are superior to observational studies
On HPV vaccines many observational studies published and hyped Randomized Controlled Trials on #Gardasil #Cervarix failed to demonstrate the expected efficacy though. It is sad, true and rarely discussed. Let’s have a closer look. @garyschwitzer @HealthNewsRevu @senseaboutsci
In 2006 @US_FDA VRBPAC Committee required @Merck to provide data and analyses on Gardasil RCTs FUTURE I and II.
Which outcome would you consider as the most relevant to assess Gardasil efficacy?
