"I'm a Blue Collar Kid at the end of the day" ~ @Scaramucci on #TheBottomLine, #AlJazeera: So, am I! So, am I! So, I know exactly where you came from!! 👍👊💪 And I'm impressed!!
You spoke about your father - so, did I! 👊 And your mother - mine gave birth to 10 babies (9 alive)! You're making my eyes tear as I write these tweets after the end of your interview on #TheBottomLine
Your panel was SPOT ON! RE: APRE @VP's speech (WHICH I COULDN'T AVOID SINCE EVERY INTERNATIONAL NEWS CHANNEL I get was carrying it): MY FIRST OBSERVATION as a fully trained & qualified Virologist:THE ABSENCE OF # FACEMASKS & #SocialDistancing! #RNC2020Convention
They certainly behaved as if the #COVID19Pandemic was OVER IN THE USA!! Although @POTUS@FLOTUS were socially distanced from the crowd in front of them, the audience wasn't: from one another or even from @VP who gave one of them a fist: both without #facemasks!! #COVIDIOCY!! 🙄
I can't wait for the statistics for #COVID19usa diagnostics, especially amongst the audience (many in the front row appear to be war injury-handicapped #WarVeterans) in the aftermath of today's public health fiasco!
@bernamadotcom#WHODailyBriefing:- 1) There are 9 vaccines under evaluation ~ Dr. Tedros 2) Working with vaccine manufacturers to allow all countries working with #COVAX to obtain the vaccine at the lowest possible price, as soon as there's a safe and effective vaccine.
3) Initial supply of the vaccine roll out would be those at the highest risk: Health care workers and the elderly. 4) If we all DO IT ALL (wear facemasks, practise hand hygiene and practise safe distancing) we can break the chain of transmission.
5) We're learning new things about this virus every day 6) Question about HK reinfection case and implications for herd immunity etc.
Answer: People do develop an immune response. It would be good if sequencing can be done in reinfection cases - in this case 14 nt difference!
I'm not American and I've NEVER VOTED in my own country's Elections (as a matter of principle - because there never has been anyone I would have voted for)! But, listening to @JoeBiden as a fully trained and qualified Virologist ../2..
2) who has spent time as Guest Researcher at both Globally Renowned US Biomedical Institutions: #NCID, #NIH, Bethesda, where I had personally seen #DrAnthonyFauci, visiting LID, during the Laboratory (I was attached to)'s analysis of the Desert Shield Virus plus @CDCgov, Atlanta
..3) whilst on both Research Leave (Spring/Summer 1990-1992) & Sabbatical (1995 & 2008), resp. (from the Malaysian University where I was an Academic, teaching Virology to B.Sc. (Microbiology) undergraduates at the Faculty of Science for 30 years!
@KamalaHarris Please stick to what you know, as a fully qualified Virologist, I ask you not to make judgements about this virus you have absolutely no expertise on: FYI #SARSCoV2 is colour blind (it has no eyes and cannot differentiate Black from White or Latino)!! #Covid19usa
The reason your people are disproportionately affected by #Covid19usa has nothing to do with the nature of this virus but the physiology of the host it entered (which it had no prior knowledge of, only deal with once inside)!
Ask yourself what is it about #USA that makes Blacks & Latinos especially susceptible to #SARSCoV2?! I can tell you: it ain't their skin colour! Our blood is the same colour and I suspect our bodies' cells (the surface of which the virus spike protein attaches to) are, too?! 🙄
I don't know if I can use similar terminology for my post mid-August 2015 21-day hospital admission for severe asthma recovery, complicated by prolonged insomnia, induced by the second component of my asthma medication (changed during the 6 weeks' follow up after discharge)!
Plus Adrenal Insufficiency (caused by the Discharge Medical Officer failing to taper down my 30mg a day Prednisolone, prescribed for 17 of the 21 days I was hospitalised, to bring down the inflammation in my lungs).
@andrewchappelle Yep! Saw this on @AJENews around noon MYT! Ultimate betrayal of the #PalestinianCause!! I've always asserted that Palestinians are where they've been because of betrayal by their Arab brethren! Now I'm proven, once more! #EmiratiBastards (not brethren): F them!! ✌️(The Reverse)
MUST WATCH: @AJInsideStory #RussianCoronaVirusVaccine
Very interesting and informative! Moscow Participant explains need for registration for Phase III trial and large & scale manufacturing & said the vaccine is not supposed to be offered till 2021!!
Apparently the Russians have been working on the #MERSCoV vaccine and used the same platform for #COVID19 - sounds reasonable to me?!
@40_Ronda et al.
This is what you do to help save a malnourished #Yemeni child - send what you can afford toward a financial collection, for the child to be taken to a city (Sanaa, Saadah) hospital's @UNICEF Malnutrition Centre (with his/her family from, perhaps, a village).
This was what @AhmadAlgohbary used to do: Drive from Sana'a to collect the malnourished child with his/her family, from a village outside Saadah, then drive them to the hospital in Saadah (where the child gets treated at the @UNICEF Malnutrition Centre);
The financial collection supports the poor family (from the village)'s stay in Saadah (while the child is being treated)! Otherwise, without the means to support their stay, the poor family would take the child back to the village (after 1 day in the city), where the child dies..
