This graph is amazing. It shows that measuring levels in municipal sewage almost perfectly predicts forthcoming cases with a full week's notice (R=0.994). It's one of several discoveries in this new study from : . C-19 is

There have been claims that has acquired mutations leading to more transmissible strains. We formally tested whether this was the case using 15,000 genomes from all over the world: ... and the answer is no, not at all! (1/5)

I had not paid attention to exactly what Mongolia has been doing to keep under control there. Absolutely incredible: very early shutdowns, procurement and manufacturing of supplies, leaders that led by example. Imagine.

"If the Trudeau govt wants Cdns to trust &buy into a vaccine, partnering w/Chinese Communist Party’s military is the most counterproductive & dangerous thing it could do. It must abandon this.. &instead fund vaccine trials w/our allied nations"

How come we're being told that antibodies from infection aren't evidence of immunity, but antibodies from an experimental vaccine equal immunity? 🤔

The amount of detected in patients was the highest in the first week when symptoms appeared, according to an study, which analysed saliva samples from 23 lab-confirmed patients to track their viral load as the disease progressed. (1/4)

The Pareto principle—80/20 rule—law of the vital few, is quickly getting backing for transmissibility. 3 preprints, using 3 different methods, different patient cohorts, show a small % of infections account for a large proportion of spread. A table to summarize 👇

Well, as most virologists suspected, South Korea reports that those supposed reactivations/reinfections are indeed tests picking up RNA. No infectious virus is present, meaning these people can't infect others.

Researchers in China tracked 455 people exposed to asymptomatic carriers of - NOT ONE was infected. Remind me why we are making people who aren't sick wear face coverings?

⚠️FINALLY- proof of protection for re-infection. Monkeys infected that then recovered from were protected from re-infection when exposed to virus 35 days later. "Data show that infection induced protective immunity against re-exposure”

Korean CDC analysis of 285/447 (64%) who retested positive post 👉Viral cell culture (n=108): 0% pos 👉Contacts traced (n=790): only 3 ill, all w/ other exposures 👉These ppl are not re-infected or still contagious. It's old, dead virus.

The + 11 states mix results from antibody tests and tests that measure viral mRNA. But Ab tests measure whether you have ever been exposed to the virus, while RNA tests tell if you have the virus right now. HUGE apples-&-oranges screw-up.

Astonishing report: the best CDC estimate for the death rate for is ~1 in 400 infections, or ~ 1 in 3,000 for people under 50. The figures are here: a 0.4% death rate for symptomatic cases, but 35% of infections cause no symptoms at all.

It’s almost as if the media-created panic FAR FAR outstrips the real severity of for reasons that are just completely inexplicable. And by completely inexplicable I mean obvious.
