We used to refer to a "blockbuster" product of a pharmaceutical company as having $1 billion of sales in a year. Pfizer's vaccine take for 2021 is $33 billion by @building  @FT

I can't remember the last time I agreed with a @WSJopinion  but they've got the @US_FDA  full approval need right

This quickly reaching 80 cases/100,000 residents in Louisiana, now exceeding its pandemic peak, and heading due North, is deeply concerning Arkansas slowing, hope it continues

This new data from @pfizer  on booster shots for increasing levels of neutralizing antibodies by age group in 23 people is not enough to make any call yet. We need to see clinical data to know whether this marker translates to need, and in whom

Just out @sciencemagazine  "The overlooked superpower of mRNA vaccines" Breaking the chain better; all vaccines are ≠ by w/ @meredithwadman  @angie_rasmussen  @adeelbutt_MD

The 6 month vaccine efficacy date from @pfizer  @BioNTech_Group 's randomized trial, new preprint Any symptomatic infection 2 months 96% 2-4 months 90% 4-6 months 84% For protection vs severe illness solid all the way through at least 6 months *97%*

The event curves for symptomatic infections show this change over time. The convergence trend is small relative to the persistent marked gradient between vaccine and placebo

Airborne it is. 🦠 The 10 streams of overwhelming evidence by a 5-★ succi @TheLancetct  @trishgreenhalghu @kprather88 @Rschooleym @zeynep @jljcolorador @DFismany

This will go down in history as one of science and medical research's greatest achievements. Perhaps the most impressive. I put together a preliminary timeline of some key milestones to show how several years of work were compressed into months.

One per thousand Americans have now died from covid-19. How does that compare with 12 other select countries with >20 million population?

The patient had a whopping (8g) dose of a #SARSCoV2  neutralizing IgG antibody cocktail. Then they detected antibodies. You must be kidding me, Dr. Conley?

You don’t get 3+ million shots a day without tens of thousands of volunteers. A salute to them. A sign of unity for a common, vital purpose

"The evidence is now clear. #SARSCoV2  is transmitted predominantly through the air — by people talking and breathing out large droplets and small particles called aerosols. Catching the virus from surfaces — although plausible — seems to be rare." @nature 

Just published @TheLancet  The largest study of hydroxychloroquine shows a significant increase in death (~35%) and >2-fold increase of serious heart arrhythmias. ~96,000 patients, ~15,000 on HCQ or CQ from 671 hospitals, 6 continents.

If we wanted to get serious vs B.1.1.7 —get N95/K95 masks to all and enforce their use —get rapid home testing big supply to each household for daily use —amp up digital, mobility, genomic and wastewater surveillance 100X —vaccinate 24/7 like it's an emergency. Because it is.
