    2. Derek Thompson. (2021, May 17). Weeks ago, Gov. Abbott made Texas the first state to abolish its mask mandate and lift capacity constraints for all businesses. So, what changed? Nothing.

    1. Jarrad Hall. (2021, May 9). There’s a lot of speculation that COVID may become less virulent. This is still an old concept in the field, akin to aerosol vs droplet. In my own field it was assumed that resistance came at the expense of virulence. [Tweet]. @CdrHBiscuitIII. https://twitter.com/CdrHBiscuitIII/status/1391265635749957632

    1. Dr Ellie Murray. (2021, May 7). I’m seeing a lot of “these people are over-estimating risk” chatter that doesn’t acknowledge that the probability you die if you get covid is always less than the probability anyone dies if you get covid. It’s not “over-estimation” to consider community impacts. [Tweet]. @EpiEllie. https://twitter.com/EpiEllie/status/1390792624777334797
