Useful from Update on the current understanding of the who, why, which & how of face mask use for . Note: the main benefit comes from not expiring on others, so don’t wear one with a valve, as this circumvents this function

This ⇣ - as an island nation we have a unique tool that very few countries have the benefit of. In the same way that Fortress Tas has used its moat, so should Australia.

Face masks now recommended in public in Victorian Stage 3 restriction areas. “Studies have recently shown that, even when factoring in imperfections and human error, wearing face masks can reduce transmission of coronavirus by around 60 per cent”

I am a big believer in the power of public masks as a social signal. A reminder that we need to look after and protect each other. That there are small, common courtesies that we can each adopt to protect young and old alike - TOGETHER. 😷😷😷

“For the 0.01th time...” Good to see the process of imparting concepts in increments one hundred times smaller than is required to articulate them once, is finally getting some traction.

I teamed up with the brilliant (Nick Talley, Editor in Chief of Medical Journal of Australia) to ask in "Why are masks not yet mandatory in Australia?" They really should be a big part of the plan. I'll explain our thinking below... 1/

Not the first to explain it - but nicely done....all about pre-test probability (Also important to understand the difference between individual screening & population surveillance) Preoperative SARS-CoV-2 screening: Can it really rule out COVID-19?

"Suddenly we are locked down and there are police everywhere. For me, I am happy, because we need to know who is sick, and I feel good because the government is now thinking about us and will help us."

The conflicting info from doctors has been exhausting- First they said “masks don’t help” Then it became “we learned more and masks do help” Then it was “yup, we still think masks help” Then “continue wearing masks” Now “for the love of god, wear a mask” Which is it?!

When you test more people, you prevent more cases.

An excellent article explaining how prevalence determines pre and post-test probability of COVID-19 (Bayesian statistics that make a lot of sense)

My response to the above questions about PPE use, intubation as an AGP, refocusing on ward PPE. If there's a need to bolster quality of PPE used on the wards (& care homes) I don't think that is an argument to relax it in high risk areas

This letter also in response to the PPE review in asks whether we are using the right PPE, whether intubation is really an AGP and whether our focus should be redirected. All good questions.

Here's my response about the extent to which we should consider SARS-CoV-2 airborne and whether the 2m droplet rule is arbitrary
