There was a period of time when I felt a Covid infection was inevitable, but only because I had been told it was. When I started realizing it may not be inevitable, is when I doubled down on mitigations—leveled up masks & pushed back on people pressuring me to get back to normal.

Beto debate with #AbbottFailsTexasEveryday LIVE: Gov. Abbott and Beto O'Rourke go head-to-head in a debate for Texas governor It's the first and possibly only debate between the two as we get closer to Election Day. khou.com/mobile/article/news…

If you think it's crazy that there won't be any voters in the audience for tonight's debate, just wait until you hear that it's taking place in a theater that seats 1,000 people. It'll be empty—no seats filled—because Abbott refuses to face those he's failed these last 8 years.

"I had been on assignment at a Detroit Montessori school for two days, and shot hundreds of photos. Some were very good, but I knew I hadn't gotten THE shot. That afternoon, as we all sat on the floor in a circle listening to a story, I bowed my head.

In today’s installment of THIS IS HELL, my son and I visited an unmasked specialist’s office. (“Face mask encouraged, but not required!”) Choruses of Covid coughing can be heard from various rooms up & down the hall. Staff are unmasked & so are patients. This is madness.

#RSV2022 is RAGING through our community right now. Infants, toddlers, and even young school aged kids have it. Beds remain hard to come by. Winter is going to be horrendous if this keeps up! #pedsICU #pediatrics #pediatriciain #tweetiatrician

In the first year of #LongCovid we spent $30k trying to save my life. In the second year we spent $35k. In the third year we sold our house and everything we own. Year four is coming.. Then what? We have nothing left. This is fully insured in the USA. #healthcare

1) Those calling for abstinence for infection control were flippant and neglectful authorities, dismissing the concerns of the marginalized with an impractical suggestion 2) The people calling for continued mask use are not the authorities, but rather the marginalized themselves

Lizzo plays a flute and one day later everyone's an expert on flutes. They should keep handing her instruments until we accidentally bring back music education

COVID in wastewater is spiking in/around Boston: This usually means cases will rise in next week+. Boston COVID hospitalizations are also on the rise. We urge everyone to wear a N95 or KF94 mask when indoors & test regularly! (1/2) mwra.com/biobot/biobotdata.h… #bospoli #COVID19

Replying to @EpiEllie
I oversee the testing for 3 major movie studios. ~15 productions, about 4500 people right now. We test everyone daily. We are getting about 10% asymptomatic, 10% test positive before symptoms, the remaining are symptoms first, then pop positive.

As I've said all along Biden knows exactly what hes doing to us as he hides behind his "healthcare access" nonsense He has left the disabled and immunocompromised to fend for ourselves all along and has no plan to change that
Biden: "And I know COVID-19 is hitting the disabilities community especially hard..." "That's why through the pandemic, we've focused on increasing access to healthcare..." Narrator's Voice: In fact, @CDCgov recently ended universal masking in healthcare settings! 😡👀
