Do you feel you lost a year from 2020? The average US life expectancy will likely drop 1.1 year due to covid-19, and more for Black and Latino populations @PNASNews 

Two of the largest gut #microbiome  studies, reported today @NatureGenet , support its potential causal role in ulcerative colitis and rheumatoid arthritis, and its influence by ABO blood types

A new, very large #SARSCoV2  household transmission study (27K households, 30K cases, 58K contacts) —age ≥ 60 and infants most likely to get infected —<age 20 most likely to infect others (1.6X) @TheLancetInfDis

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

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.

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?

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.

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.

How can a country that has required you to take your shoes off at airport security for a 2001 foiled attempt without a single person hurt ...... be the same one that has no systematic plan to address >73,000 Americans dead, >1.2 million confirmed cases?

The pandemic only lasted 103 in New Zealand and it has now gone 100 days since without a single new case. This paragraph is the key. Science-based Empathic leadership United Public Confidence Adherence to burdensome-control measures
