I'm hoping that when the CDC soon decides on the prioritization for COVID vaccines, elementary school teachers are immediately behind healthcare workers.

New estimate by CDC suggest 60% of spread is absent of symptoms - 35% pre-symptomatic and 25% asymptomatic Symptomatic testing is not and WILL NOT WORK to stop spread. Must catch it early & only frequent testing w rapid tests can do that at scale

Weekly testing will become mandatory for all faculty at my university (including physicians) who are involved in on-campus instruction, as of January. (It's been optional since start of fall quarter)

Totally agree. I understand why my healthcare colleagues make TikTok dance videos and the like. I know they mean well, and that these are a source of camaraderie during stressful times. But in retrospect, I also believe they've caused more harm than good.

Unfortunately, this is probably not widely available, but we sometimes use a "minus strand" PCR test to detect actively replicating virus if a patient is still testing positive after 2 weeks with the conventional test. Discussed briefly here:

The pardon is awful and an insult to our entire justice system. But I'm not sure how it can be characterized as "completely lawless" when it is an act explicitly permitted by the Constitution.

It’s easy to believe that ‘cancel culture’ doesn’t exist if all your thoughts adhere to the fashionable ideas of the moment.

‘Lockdown’ is *not* a technical term. It’s become a scary sounding bogeyman phrase for any intervention that someone doesn’t want to comply with, regardless of whether it has a public health benefit

Physician here. I'm not waiting for months and months of safety info, but I am waiting until there is publicly available data that's more than a company press release.

TFW you pick up your kids from childcare to find 2/3 of the other kids had been kept home by their parents due to a rumor of a COVID positive staff member - a rumor that you hadn't heard.
