Misogyny is a hate crime. Rape is torture. And domestic violence is terrorism. Labeling these crimes any other way is just a half-measure. 🏳️‍🌈#ACAB

Honestly, I don't give a fuck whether dissent is patriotic or not.

This may be true in South Africa, and I tweeted the Bloomberg story earlier too, but it’s also not necessarily true in other African countries where there have definitely been Covid vaccine shortages at one point or another.
The impulse to turn Omicron into a vaccine equity morality tale is blasting through the reality that in South Africa (like the USA!) the constraint on vaccination is demand not supply; they were literally turning away doses earlier this week.

Friendly reminder that the Spanish Flu was name “Spanish Flu” because nations fighting in World War I didn’t want to report their flu outbreaks while Spain’s press freely reported its flu cases.

Any regrets about ordering people to go back to their shared, unventilated office spaces with no mask mandate in place, governor? 😒😒😒
We continue to see warning signs of spikes in COVID this winter, and while the new Omicron variant has yet to be detected in New York State, it's coming. Today I signed an Executive Order to help @HealthNYGov boost hospital capacity ahead of potential spikes.

Even if you wanted to, you cant stop abortion, you can only make it unsafe. You cant stop drug use, you can only make it unsafe. You cant stop asylum seeking, you can only make it unsafe. You cant stop sex work, you can only make it unsafe. This is like, really basic shit...

Is there ever going to be a time when this medical genius will be lauded for stating anything other than the obvious 🙄😒🤦🏼‍♀️

Beautiful cave lion head sculpted in woolly mammoth ivory with simple flint tools 35,000 years ago. From Vogelherd Cave, Germany. Such a regal, well-proportioned face that looks so wise #IceAgeHumans

CDC has been a global health leader (e.g. smallpox, Ebola). In this pandemic, senior CDC leadership is conspicuous by its near absence on the global stage. Since CDC is the largest source of US technical public health expertise, this is neither good for CDC nor for global health.

During the presidential primary, I mocked people who claimed Yang was a white supremacist candidate or a vessel for fascism. 🤦‍♀️
Andrew Yang on white supremacists: "If they're going to help us transition to a more effective democracy...I don't need to know what their stance is on things that I disagree with."

This is pretty pointless. Better actions could include but are not limited to: * Require vaccination & negative tests for all air travel. * Speed up access to & logistics for vaccinations around the world. * Further enhance our tracking of new variants here at home.
NEWS: Amid concerns about the Covid-19 variant the WHO is calling Omicron and with input from Fauci and CDC, the U.S. is implementing new restrictions for non-U.S. citizens/perm res traveling from South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique & Malawi.
