    1. Kaiser Health News. (2021, December 1). The number of U.S. deaths from COVID-19 has surpassed 775K. But left behind are tens of thousands of children—Some orphaned entirely—After their parents or a grandparent who cared for them died.

    1. ReconfigBehSci [@SciBeh]. (2021, November 14). Kai Spiekermann will speak the need for science communication and how it supports the pivotal role of knowledge in a functioning democracy.

    1. ReconfigBehSci [@i]. (2021, November 27). @STWorg @PhilippMSchmid @CorneliaBetsch this clip got me too- for non-German speakers. She is asked whether she is ‘concerned’. Her response: Of course I’m concerned, I’m double vexed, I’m waiting for my booster vaccination, my husband died of Covid, I was in hospital, now I’m avoiding my grand children [Tweet].

    1. ReconfigBehSci on Twitter: ‘@STWorg @PhilippMSchmid @CorneliaBetsch and every now and then we have to watch a clip like this to be reminded what all of this is really about. This pain and suffering is happening in one of the richest countries in the world at a time in the pandemic when we know exactly what to do to avoid it’ / Twitter. (n.d.).

    1. Caroline Orr Bueno, Ph.D. (2021, September 14). Right-wing radio host Bob Enyart—A staunch anti-vaccine, anti-mask, anti-abortion, anti-gay “firebrand” who used to mock the deaths of people with AIDS — just died of COVID-19. He is the 5th right-wing radio host to die of COVID in the past 6 weeks. Https://t.co/NlKodFEKNB [Tweet]. @RVAwonk. https://twitter.com/RVAwonk/status/1437634022469996550

    1. wsbgnl. (2021, January 26). I am disturbed by the hundreds of thousands of covid deaths...and counting. But what’s most disturbing to me now is the general reaction to it, the inexplicable lack of urgency or even interest in doing much to stop it in the short term. Its so far beyond what I had imagined. [Tweet]. @wsbgnl. https://twitter.com/wsbgnl/status/1353869830026268672

    1. Atomsk’s Sanakan. (2021, March 27). 1/J John Ioannidis published an article defending his low estimate of COVID-19’s fatality rate. It contains so many distortions that I’ll try something I’ve never done on Twitter for a paper: Go thru distortions page-by-page. This will take awhile. 😑 https://t.co/4wonxc6MFg https://t.co/AyV5RiwQnh [Tweet]. @AtomsksSanakan. https://twitter.com/AtomsksSanakan/status/1375935382139834373

    1. Health Nerd. (2021, March 28).

    1. Dr Ellie Murray. (2021, February 23). A thing I feel is weird about how we are all reacting to this pandemic: Mourning is still so individual & private. It surprises me there aren’t campaigns for armbands, ribbons, wreaths on doors, or some sort of flag in the window to say “a loved one was lost to COVID here”.

    1. Max Roser. (2021, April 4). Confirmed cases in India are rising very rapidly. • It does not appear to be an increase in testing, the positive rate has increased from less than 2% to more than 6%. • Deaths are also rapidly increasing.

    1. Kyle Sheldrick. (2022, February 21). This is probably the worst covid research I have read, and I helped expose a fraudulent study that was just the same patient copied-and pasted over and over again, and another which enrolled dead people. This is far more damaging to public health. 1/12 [Tweet]. @K_Sheldrick. https://twitter.com/K_Sheldrick/status/1495687486341017601

ReconfigBehSci on Twitter: ‘@STWorg @ProfColinDavis @rpancost @chrisdc77 @syrpis this is the most in depth treatment of the impact of equalities law on pandemic policy that I’ve been able to find- it would seem to underscore that there is a legal need for impact assessments that ask (some) of these questions https://t.co/auiApVC0TW’ / Twitter.

There was an 18% increase in overall mortality, year on year. But let’s dive in a little bit deeper. The @CDCgov has updated WONDER, its mortality database.

    1. Adele Groyer. (2022, January 8). Friday report is now out. Https://covidactuaries.org/2022/01/07/the-friday-report-issue-58/ I am struck that perception of a “mild” Covid situation is relative. In SA natural deaths were >30% higher than predicted in Dec. The last time weekly death rates in E&W were more than 30% above 2015-19 levels was in Jan 2021.

    1. Deepti Gurdasani. (2021, December 23). Some brief thoughts on the concerning relativism I’ve seen creeping into media, and scientific rhetoric over the past 20 months or so—The idea that things are ok because they’re better relative to a point where things got really really bad. 🧵 [Tweet]. @dgurdasani1. https://twitter.com/dgurdasani1/status/1474042179110772736
