Have you heard from Prof Jeremy Nicholson? Head of Australian National Phenome Centre ex Imperial College London. Along with Fauci et al I rate him as one of the most important and informed doctor voices of the pandemic. See for yourself: invidious.fdn.fr/6UzOav3x8Q0

Excellent news from Pfizer. Hope regulatory bodies will now review the evidence and authorise vaccination for under 5s as well. pfizer.com/news/press-releas…

If you'd told me two and a half years ago that it would be nigh on impossible to get almost anyone to understand that the way to deal with an airborne pandemic is to ensure the air we inhale is clean, I'd have thought you were mad. But here we are and I have no explanation.

Politicians claim ventilation and filtration improvements are expensive, but what are the costs of doing nothing?
"All 3 scenarios resulted in net cost-savings and infections averted. For the base-case scenario, improving ventilation to 12 ACH was associated with 54 aerosol infections averted in 1 year, with an estimated cost savings of $152K and 1.35 QALYs gained." link.springer.com/content/pd…

WOW. Coming out swinging @drajm and I am here for it. Excellent excellent piece. 💪💪💪💪
A few of my prostate-heavy peer group seem to have a problem with women in leadership. Their hold-out against a fair go for all is doomed. My thoughts in @westaustralian this week.

Superb. Australian men being &^%#$ to women has been the subject of many a discussion in NZ over the years. Great to see the change. Both sides of the Tasman need to see a reset in the way the medical profession treats it's up-and-coming doctors.

It's pretty amazing that the people can just decide we want the keys back, and the most powerful politician in the country and whoever the heck his mates are have to move out. "You've had your turn, now give Albo a go" is the most fundamentally Australian ethic I can think of.

Pop this in your folder of bad takes on covid.
Autralian PM Scott Morrison has lost his bid for reelection. Make no mistake: he lost because of lockdowns. Though the stated particulars will vary, the political leaders who presided over the devastating lockdowns and zero covid fantasies have lost the trust of the people.

It's a Monday, we have a new fresh government and renewed hope we will vaccinate the last remaining tiny little Australians soon. #FindOurKidsaVaccine

The verdict could not be clearer on the appetite of broader Australia for Mr Morrison's future contribution. What motivation could he have for staying in parliament?

This is so common place now that for hospital workers neither the horrendous treatment of staff nor the casual incompetence of management will raise an eyebrow.
True story - a major Melbourne hospital had a staff member resign b/c the hospital denied her leave for her “wedding day”’ Following her resignation, they asked what they could do to get her to stay - they even offered to give her her wedding day off - but by then it was 2 late.

Old leadership style of authoritarian bulldozer on basis of pedigree & privilege is no longer acceptable in today’s society. I’ve seen it in small units all the way to big institutions. Respect, authenticity, inclusivity & high degree of diplomacy are today’s leadership skills.

1/ An observation I will make (and by no means is this a generalization), some experts advising policy who pushed for removal of m*sks (and m*sk m*ndates) did so by publicly saying that it would enable compliance when we did need to use m*ndates.

Countries will not prosper if they persist with a vaccine only approach to #Covid. We need masks i doors in public where possible & good ventilation standards, coming from thoughtful government.

Run. Scream. Women have shown they don't need to feminise any party's background.
Tim Wilson while conceding to Zoe Daniel couldn't even say her name, let alone acknowledge he was defeated by a woman. And the LNP wonder why women are running screaming from their party. #AusVotes2022
