Peng Shuai being interviewed by Singapore media Zaobao:…
She is obviously surprised by the interview which takes place in bad acoustic and light conditions. She answers all questions regarding recent events. #WhereIsPengShuai? In Shanghai. 1/
Peng Shuai states that she never accused anybody of sexually assaulting her. Actually, you just have to read the post from Nov. 2 attributed to her to see that there is no such accusation. It was made up by journalists like @EmilyZFeng (NPR), @stevenleemyers (NYT) etc. 2/
Peng Shuai authenticates the content of the email attributed to her by CGTN, explaining that she does not speak English well, that she sent this email in Chinese to WTA chairman Steve Simon, but that the English translation provided by CGTN is correct. 3/
Peng Shuai also declares that whatever she wrote on Weibo is her private matter and that there have been too many misunderstandings. 4/
It is time that Western media honestly question the role they have played in this matter. They have grossly distorted the translations of the post in order to create a story about sexual assault where there is none. This is not acceptable. 5/
The post attributed to Peng Shuai is about an extramarital affair, which made her suffer because she was forced to keep it secret. She was tired of the constant lies and hypocrisy. Western media used it to catch her in an even bigger web of lies. 6/
Lies by the Western media ended up threatening everything Peng Shuai tried to build up in her life, i.e. integrating Chinese tennis into the international sports scene. WTA chairman Steve Simon suspended all WTA events in China, based on Western media lies, without verifying. 7/
Verifying what the post attributed to Peng Shuai actually says is easy. Find some native Chinese speakers, preferably some who are neither dogmatically pro or anti CPC and ask them. This is obviously asking too much from people like WTA chairman Steve Simon. 8/
I have been working for days on a detailed analysis of this post and of the subsequent media reporting. It will be online soon. You can expect that a lot of people, including high level tennis players, will hold the Western media accountable for this revolting matter. 9/
Peng Shuai interviewed by Zaobao (Singapore). Read the post attributed to her on Nov. 2, and you will understand. No accusation of sexual assault. CGTN email is authentic. See thread above.

My latest: When did SARS-CoV-2 start to circulate among humans and where? Western media, experts and even WHO say: In Wuhan, probably in December or November 2019, in October at the earliest. However, peer-reviewed research tells another story. 1/13…
First positive PCR test in sewage: 27 Nov. 2019 in Florianópolis, Brazil, followed by three months (!) of virtual constant RNA concentration. This virus spread slowly and went unnoticed. It took time to reach 0.1% prevalence necessary for PCR detection. 2/
First four positive microneutralization antibody tests: October 2019 in Italy, indicating more than 0.6% prevalence among the population. Unlike ELISA antibody test, microneutralization tests have got low sensitivity, but very good selectivity. 3/13…

Throat spray Povidone-Iodine or hydroxychloroquine are efficient as prevention against COVID-19: A peer-reviewed randomized study with >3000 participants in a migrant home in Singapore with high incidence: Control group incidence 70.0% after 42 days. 1/…
After compensating for var. factors, throat spray povidone-iodine decreases risk of infection by 60-64%, i.e. by more than half; hydroxychloroquine by 61-66%; both signif. p<0.0125. Vit. C + zinc by 55-58% (compared to only vit. C), according to study not signif. (see below). 2/
Question 1: All data and samples were ready on July 13 2020. This study can save hundreds of thousands of lives, but the results were published online only on April 20 2021. No preprint. Why? Because the team got funding for one year and must justify it? 3/

Massives Infektionsgeschehen in Schulen? Lösung:
1) Vogel-Strauss-Politik
2) Schulen schliessen und Zukunft der Kinder zerstören
3) Masken u. sich einen TRITT IN DEN ARSCH geben: Schulen, Eltern usw. mobilisieren für Bau von Lüftung mit Wärmeaustauscher, Schutzvorrichtungen usw.
Lüften Problem 1: horizontaler Luftzug (Fenster öffnen) verringert Aerosole, vergrössert Risiko durch Tröpfcheninfektion. Lösung: Vertikaler Luftzug, wie in Labors. Luft strömt an der Decke aus, wird am Boden durch Abwasserrohre mit Löchern wieder abgesaugt.
Lüften Problem 2: Für einen konstanten Luftstrom braucht man viel Frischluft, dann erfrieren die Kinder. Lösung: Wärmeaustauscher. Die abfliessende Luft wärmt die einströmende Luft. Solche Systeme gibt es; sie können gekauft oder selber gebastelt werden.

COVID-19: What information do we need to get out urgently?
In-depth analysis of media reporting and social media has revealed that crucial information which would allow us to develop a more efficient COVID-19 policy did not reach the public and decision makers. 1/24
As a result, some experts, organizations and activists who are opposed to efficient government measures in general can spread incorrect information about the virus and possible measures, with significant disruptive impact. 2/24
We need a systematic analysis of the discourse of experts, media and social media users to see which incorrect arguments are used against implementing efficient measures and how they can be refuted. 3/24

Claiming that IFR "is between 0.5 and 1.0%" is incorrect and only helps advocates of herd immunity. IFR with optimal healthcare (!) is between 0.5 and 1.0%. IFR without is much higher.
@C_Althaus @marcelsalathe @itosettiMD_MBA @EckerleIsabella
Providing IFR estimates if hospital capacity is overwhelmed is not difficult. French data is available with hospitalizations, ICU and deaths according to age group. Even if we "only" consider that without hospital care, all ICU patients would die, IFR in young people skyrocket.
If we take antibody studies from places where hospital capacity was partially (!) overwhelmed, like Spain, Madrid or some places in Bergamo province, and use excess mortality figures (testing of the dead was often not possible), we get IFR of 2%. But nobody ever mentions this.
