Update: a total of 8 health workers now affected in the current outbreak (1 probable case and 7 confirmed cases). We need to protect all health workers in high-risk areas through vaccination and personal protective equipment.

At hacking conference and just learned how easy it is to physically gain admin access on a voting machine that is used in 18 states. Requires no tools and takes under 2 minutes. I’m concerned for our upcoming elections.

Thanks Nick. Having read the paper, it's really useful to have your summary view of what we should take from the results.

Single read accuracy is high enough for pathogen and resistance gene identification. Consensus required for SNP detection as with all other seq tech. No problem with accuracy for my applications.

Bonnes nouvelles! Le séquençage génétique du virus par l'INRB a confirmé que le virus de l'épidémie au Nord-Kivu est de l'espèce Zaïre & qu'il n'est pas lié à l'épidémie de l'Equateur. Et nous avons reçu l'autorisation du comité éthique pour commencer la vaccination demain
