    1. Macaulay claimed that his memory was good enough to enable him to write out the whole of Paradise Lost. But when preparing his History of England, he made extensive notes in a multitude of pocketbooks of every shape and colour.

      By what method did Macaulay memorize Paradise Lost?

    1. Alastair Grant. (2022, March 9). Based on the spike gene target data from TaqPath, BA.2 made up 82% of COVID cases in England on 6th March—It has now almost taken over We know that BA.2 has higher transmission than Omicron and there are a number of examples from Denmark of BA.2 reinfection shortly after BA.1 https://t.co/rEyud8osY1 [Tweet]. @AlastairGrant4. https://twitter.com/AlastairGrant4/status/1501606060033028099

    1. Prof. Christina Pagel 🇺🇦. (2022, March 8). What could be causing it? Likely combo of: 1—Dominant BA.2 causing more infections (we await ONS!) 2—Reduction in masks, self-isolation & testing enabling more infections 3—Waning boosters in older people esp I worry that we will be stuck at high levels for long time. 2/2 https://t.co/xZ2SLFNVkS [Tweet]. @chrischirp. https://twitter.com/chrischirp/status/1501250081693048838

    1. Dr. Deepti Gurdasani. (2022, February 21). Did anyone hear any mention of long COVID, an illness affecting 1.3 million people, of whom 500,000 have had this for more than a year during the briefing? Are we just going to pretend it doesn’t exist? [Tweet]. @dgurdasani1. https://twitter.com/dgurdasani1/status/1495839416262311938

    1. Alastair Grant. (2022, February 16). Samples likely to be BA.2 (SGT positive in TaqPath data) now make up 34% of COVID cases in England. The proportion has roughly doubled in a week. That represents a growth in absolute numbers of BA.2, even if overall infections are falling at the same rate as reported cases https://t.co/LNr5baChby [Tweet]. @AlastairGrant4. https://twitter.com/AlastairGrant4/status/1493880986660225024

    1. Krutika Kuppalli, MD FIDSA. (2022, January 14). If you had #COVID19 once you can get it again (and again). Risk of reinfection in England with #Omicron was ~5.4 fold higher compared to #Delta The relative risk were 6.36 & 5.02 for unvaxxd & vaxxd cases—Implies protection against reinfection by Omicron may be as low as 19% [Tweet]. @KrutikaKuppalli. https://twitter.com/KrutikaKuppalli/status/1482074117742288898

    1. Prof. Christina Pagel. (2022, January 31). Update on growth of Omicron subvariant BA.2 in England from Wellcome Sanger data. Growing in all regions. The main Omicron variant we’ve had so far is BA.1. There is then its child BA.1.1 with an extra mutation and its brother BA.2 which is pretty different to BA.1. 1/2 https://t.co/iVxrf01P4o [Tweet]. @chrischirp. https://twitter.com/chrischirp/status/1488127760291799041

    1. James 💙 Neill - 😷 🇪🇺🇮🇪🇬🇧🔶. (2022, January 23). Of 51,141 deaths due to ischaemic heart diseases 32,872 (64.3%) had pre-existing conditions.💔 Do those 33k heart disease deaths not count? Or is an absence of pre-existing conditions only required for Covid deaths...😡⁉️ Source: ONS England 2019 [Tweet]. @jneill. https://twitter.com/jneill/status/1485327886164844546
