If you use it, you lose it. The willy nilly use of Paxlovid for people unlikely to benefit from it will only hasten SARSCoV2 resistance to it.
More paxlovid resistance mutations being found - all the more important now to have very active genomic surveillance, to study combination antiviral therapies, and to fast track development of new antivirals for COVID science.org/content/article/…

This is BY FAR the best take on these upticks in cases I’ve heard so far. Bravo!

It is untrue to say that COVID vaccines in use are manufactured using fetal cell lines. This false statement may be preventing people from getting life-saving COVID vaccination. Justice Thomas and others should understand it's false and stop repeating it nbcnews.com/politics/supreme…

This is incorrect. There is no data suggesting PAX is less effective against any circulating variant. Paxlovid is an anti-viral. It’s not dependent on a changing spike protein. Once again, the rando science journalist doesn’t understand the science behind SCoV2.
His case is NOT "vaccine rebound" -- it is #Paxlovid rebound. The drug is far less effective against newer #SARSCoV2 variants. Moreover, #Fauci says his rebound illness is not life threatening, thanks to his vaccinations.

EFD has found a new toy.
📍“Super Gonorrhea… poses a major public health threat". #SuperGonorrhea is a type of antibiotic-resistant strain—some say it may be spreading from bad use of antibiotics like azithromyocin vs #COVID19 (remember that 2020/2021 trend?) HT @colbertlateshow forbes.com/sites/brucelee/20…

Bob’s wife did not have long Covid. And Bob should never have announced she did. Bob is not an ID expert and doesn’t seem to understand viruses. Don’t listen to Bob.
My wife @katiehafner's new novel, "The Boys," out in two weeks. Great to see it atop @AltaJournal's list of books to read in July! altaonline.com/books/g404432… (For those who have been asking [thanks!], she's now 8 weeks out from Covid & back to ~80% energy/thinking. Much improved.)

#monkeypox case have been climbing rapidly, but the rise in cumulative cases over the past 2 months can't predict the future. We're picking up more existing cases, but that doesn't necessarily say much about current transmission rates. 1/
Monkeypox projections Now we probably have enough data to model MPX cases forwards in the short term. *IF* the current trend continues, we would expect to see 100k worldwide by August, and the first million in September.

THIS. All of it.
ok so enough time has passed that I'm pretty sure neither of us will become symptomatic so lemme just say this: reinfection/post vax ifxnresulted in, *at worst*, my wife having a slight headache. her primary infection left her breathless when trying to speak and exhausted for 1mo

Amen.
Dr. Adams’ claims about “Long COVID”—what it is, how frequent it appears, and who may be affected—are not based on any facts. As a former Surgeon General, you ought to know better. 😏
*brain imaging studies*. Hopefully the didn’t do Brian images.

Every day there are millions of *would-be* symptomatic infections not taking hold because of vaccination, history of infection, or both. Reinfection events are not more severe for the overwhelming majority.

If you are fully vaccinated, there is no reason why you should be following case numbers, variants, or anything else Covid related. If you feel compelled to worry about these things, it’s your mental health you should focus on. Not the virus. I hope that’s clear.

Do vaxed + boosted MedTwitter MDs posting they're SARS-CoV-2 Ag+ while commenting how grateful they are to be on Paxlovid realize they're the best advertisement the antivax movement can buy? It's not the "anti-science" mov't destroying public trust in MD/MPH/PhDs, it's ourselves
