Elimination is off the table for the sole reason that people keep saying "elimination is off the table". It's an ideological decision to keep this pathogen in circulation indefinitely.

Boosters and Paxlovid don’t prevent infection or spread. Evusheld works poorly. I don’t get the logic. N95s and ventilation, anyone? Actual infection control and prevention??

I'm immunocompromised. Can confirm US (and Canadian) response is eugenics. I hesitated for long time before saying out loud. Eugenics slowly still eugenics. Policies that cause a demographic to disproportionately die a PREVENTABLE death are eugenicist. Sorry for hard truth.

The entire premise of Leana Wen's tweet is that no one cares about other people. She doesn't even seem to comprehend that people could be advocating for stronger #COVID prevention efforts not just for themselves but for other people who are at higher risk.

Another step towards a pan-sarbecovirus, variant-proof vaccine. There are now >35 antigens (epitopes) that can be used in combination, in & outside of the spike, to induce very broad, potent antibodies. But there's no coordination of efforts or priority pnas.org/doi/10.1073/pnas.22…

It isn't the people still wearing good masks in public that are stopping a "return to normal." Just sayin'

The CDC isn’t “responding” to reality, and neither are Jha, Wen, Oster, Leonhardt, etc. They’re shaping it. That’s a critical difference. And if popular opinion doesn’t match they’ll change it, hide it, ignore it, or suppress it.

I just found out both Dr. Walensky and Dr. Jha send their kids to school that invested 5 million dollars in ventilation/HEPA filters upgrades. I suspected something like that, still I am livid. What hypocrisy! If infections are unpreventable, why spend 5 million on prevention?

Dr Wen doesn’t speak for all Americans when she says we need to focus on interventions that people will accept. Polls have shown that, regardless of political affiliation, most favor protections such as mask and vaccine mandates. This is government manufacturing of consent.

CDC should tell the truth, provide accurate data and make sound recommendations, regardless. Otherwise they are just pandering to politics and cost lives. The blood is on their hands.

It's willful disinformation at this point to act like "vulnerable" people aren't everywhere.

i can tell you as a flight attendant based in canada, where mask-wearing on airplanes is federally mandated, that most passengers do in fact wear masks because they're required to and only a very few embarrass themselves by putting up a huge fuss about it.

@DrLeanaWen A week ago I flew on @AmericanAir from Mexico City to DFW. In Mexico everyone wearing mask. On flight all masked including flight crew. At DFW no mask in sight and flight from DFW to Chicago very few (me) masked and one crew member. You are wrong. If asked people will

I just missed a client meeting cos I wasn’t invited to it. The client invited my male colleague but left me out….because he thought I was just doing the admin. I’m the CEO. Don’t tell me @EverydaySexism is done. However unintentional it is costing me money

A reminder: * COVID is airborne. * Herd immunity did not happen. * Omicron was not mild. * Kids do get sick. * Transmission does occur in schools. * Each variant is not milder. * No wave has been an exit wave. Minimizers have been wrong about every single one of those things…🦠

I am interested in building a FOIA coalition against CDC/DHHS for the data they are using for their continued updating guidelines/guidance/recommendations. I am not an attorney, nor do I fully understand the mechanisms of FOIA.

'President Biden will wear a mask indoors for 10 days in line with CDC guidance', the White House said.
Joe Biden entered the room to sign the bill. Took off his mask. Coughed into his hand Signed the bill. Gave the pen to Manchin. Put his mask back on. Shook hands with everyone in the room.

Yup, a totally normal thing to see in summer. Covid waves every 2-3 months have nothing to do with this. Yessiree, nothing to see here folks, move along…
