Perfect response. Absolutely perfect. Image This does show they can do some things without three months of committee meetings.

So that's amazing.

(Even if they are jumping at non-evidence based reports because it is not even confirmed the monkeys have been poisoned. They were acting funny and believed to have been.)

Monkeypox from 1974. Subclinical is known, as I said.

Presumably respiratory.

I might trust these people to know transmission. Centre of Aerobiological Sciences, U.S. Army Institute of Infectious Diseases.

The number of times they say "aerosol" in this article is truly, well...

...breathtaking. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…

When people take the sheets OFF their beds do they flip them vigorously?

Just asking for the poxxenpox myth brigade I thought you flipped the new sheets.

You kind of just remove the old sheets no? Are people really flipping the old?

Maybe I am doing it wrong.

Public health definitions: a primer "close contact" can be direct physical contact.

But also not physicsl contact at all.

Like when it is breathing when close to the infected person.

But never breathing when far.

Jump on Twitter.

Hello world!

See Lancet about mpx = sexytime virus.

Goodbye world! I hope they did excessive p-tests reported to teeny tiny significance levels.

(Since it's all skewed data to start those sig lvls better be small)

Goodnight all!

Smallpox article about the hospital spread outbreak.

Noting the debate about whether "face to face", concluding the hospital situation suggests airborne, etc.

Same debate as today, sadly. Image Image

Post 4 or 5 textbooks on orthopoxes being respiratory. Post at least 3 old books by people who eradicated smallpox saying so. Post countless articles about smallpox air. Post countless articles about monkeypox air. Post animal orthopoxes in air... Post the clinical course showing respiratory symptoms FIRST. From Bennett major ID text, plus two or three other texts. Respired in, viremia, spreads out from infected saliva/respiratory tract, THEN rash, so contagious before rash. Show same as measles, chickenpox, per the CDC...

People get quite emotionally bothered by idea of ZeroCOVID

So I am hereby starting the VeryFewCOVID movement. It aims to reduce COVID to Very Few

If that's objectionable, add a few more viruses to Very Few. When it reaches a number you consider reasonable, that's VeryFewCOVID This is contradistinction to Focussed Protection(TM) which lets SARS-CoV-2 free spread as we Focus Protection on the economy (which they misspelled as "elderly" in their missive).

Aside from COVID-19 or monkeypox or airborne transmission, at least we can find a silver lining in one of the nice things humans have come up with:

Searching for bookmarks from the URL bar in Chrome, and for options in Word in that little search box. I ain't scrolling around forever to find some bookmark or option.

Word can still be terrible but at least it has that.

Is muting someone on here abuse yet?

Just wondering where we got to with victimization. Is someone NOT deleting their own account, ever abuse against others?

Look I do not have the time to do this.

DR. RAO STUDIED SMALLPOX HIS WHOLE LIFE. HE IS A HERO.

Portal of entry is BREATHING not fomites or skin unless broken.

Elsewhere he concludes fomites rare.

nlm.nih.gov/nichsr/esmallp… Here are his comments on transmission by inanimate objects. I haven't even fully assessed them. It's not a driver.

If you think monkeypox is any different from its cousin good luck with that.

Random factoid: there were only ever about 8000 cases of SARS-CoV-1. I just post random factoids you know, whenever.

Yup this is how you air spread the monkeypox Ironically, it *was* good that he was wearing a mask. But he shouldn't have been on the subway since no way to know he was not contagious (by air) at that time.

We're going to screw this outbreak up as well of course.

You can disagree with airborne being the mode of transmission of respiratory viruses, but you will turn out to be wrong.

5 seconds searching for something else (my own pet search) and found this, just another in the long line of airborne articles.

Everybody is treating epi study data (where did people catch, etc.) like they are actual scientific studies.

They're basically survey results. Get real. Let me spell it out.

If you ask 100 people with TVs if they own a TV, don't be surprised if your results are:
100% of all people own a TV*

.

*It'll actually be 99% because there's always that one guy grr

Placebos work very well on about 1/3 of people, not that well on another 1/3, and not at all on the last 1/3.

This is likely a difference in brain function / wiring / whatever.

I wonder if understanding air spread is the same; maybe some people are just not wired to ever get it Side note, the same people who placebo works well on are also more easily hypnotized.

I don't like where this is heading.

What I *NEED* to know about Marburg is NOTHING because we CRUSH IT OUT.

RIGHT?

RIGHT?!? Image The defeatist messaging started w/ this virus before even the pandemic, ahaha
