    1. Cornelius Roemer. (2021, December 22). @mccarthy_kr I took a look at all these NY sequences. I don’t think these point mutations S:681H are real. Why? Because they appear all over the Omicron diversity. Some sequences have S:346K, some S:701V, most miss S679K, a few have it. That’s the signature of contamination/co-infection.

    1. Health Nerd. (2021, December 13). Accusing everyone you disagree with of being a shill for pharmaceutical companies is a very simple way to tell anyone with even the slightest insight that you have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about and no desire to do simple things to educate yourself [Tweet]. @GidMK. https://twitter.com/GidMK/status/1470287869168152576

    1. Dr Daya Sharma 😷🥽💨🧼💉💉. (2021, October 30). Some of the UK JCVI deliberations are deeply disturbing, eg arguing against childhood vax so that they can get infected & boost immunity in adults. Also imply that vax doesn’t have an individual benefit! 🤯 How much of this warped thinking is present in Australia? #COVID19Aus https://t.co/o887d2etcW [Tweet]. @DrDayaSharma. https://twitter.com/DrDayaSharma/status/1454418003429183492

    1. Prof. Gavin Yamey MD MPH. (2021, October 30). “Circulation of COVID-19 in childhood could therefore periodically boost immunity in adults through exposure” When I say childhood vax ALSO benefits adults, folx say “you can’t use benefits to adults in your argument!” JCVI uses benefits to adults of letting kids get infected 👀 [Tweet]. @GYamey. https://twitter.com/GYamey/status/1454433823085715461

    1. ReconfigBehSci. (2021, October 30). Does there maybe need to be more distinction between points raised for discussion and any actual decision? Without knowing about votes etc., it’s maybe a bit strong to say ‘JCVI wanted x...’? I’ve sat on many bodies with minutes documenting positions I disagreed with [Tweet]. @SciBeh. https://twitter.com/SciBeh/status/1454488759785897987

    1. ReconfigBehSci. (2021, October 30). as the fallout from the JCVI minutes build, it’s worth considering that the corresponding U.S. body ACIP has been live streaming its meetings on YouTube... Transparency helps reduce faulty reasoning...we should have learned that lesson with the very first lockdown, no? [Tweet]. @SciBeh. https://twitter.com/SciBeh/status/1454502337368764421

    1. Richard Sever. (2021, October 30). The article is on ivermectin but the sunk intellectual cost fallacy has lessons for us all: "Publicly backtracking when the results refute your idea requires a very large dose of humility” Such humility has been notably lacking among Nobels and other COVID inexperts [Tweet]. @cshperspectives. https://twitter.com/cshperspectives/status/1454483988031152137

    1. Dr. Thomas Wilckens. (2021, October 31). JCVI facing calls from within for greater transparency over decision-making https://buff.ly/3GwVqCZ JCVI has been criticised for failing to publish detailed minutes, modelling and analysis behind its decision to advise vaccinating all over-16s in Britain #covid19 #coronavirus https://t.co/nWbnvci7LI [Tweet]. @Thomas_Wilckens. https://twitter.com/Thomas_Wilckens/status/1454798820156530689

    1. Deepti Gurdasani. (2021, November 1). No- the statement explicitly talks about infection in children being a ‘booster’ to adults i.e. Children infecting adults to protect them against... Infection!🤔 I don’t think there’s any level of cognitive gymnastics that could justify this or make sense of it. [Tweet]. @dgurdasani1. https://twitter.com/dgurdasani1/status/1455106192112500736

    1. Kenneth Baillie. (2021, October 27). When a healthcare system fails, increasing numbers of people suffer and die needlessly. That’s all. If you aren’t a patient or staff, you don’t see it.

    1. Professor Lucy Easthope. (2021, October 20). WFH really is only for a very privileged few now. Not sure how that can stay a “thing” as an NPI. Too many harms being done by a fractured society where people are thriving by getting other people to bring them stuff/ make them things/ look after their family members for them [Tweet]. @LucyGoBag. https://twitter.com/LucyGoBag/status/1450842213613772802

    1. Prof. Akiko Iwasaki. (2021, September 23). Thankfully, we have not seen any evidence of antibody-dependent enhancement of infection or disease by any COVID vaccines to date. Vaccine are not making infections worse, and are very effective in preventing disease. [Tweet]. @VirusesImmunity. https://twitter.com/VirusesImmunity/status/1441074260534075392

    1. Shawna Thomas. (2021, October 13). When asked on @CBSMornings about the company’s vaccine mandate for staff, the CEO of @united airlines also said, “Out of our 67,000 U.S. employees, there are 232 who haven’t been vaccinated. They are going through the termination process.” [Tweet]. @Shawna. https://twitter.com/Shawna/status/1448261664650973186

    1. Dowdy, D. (2021, September 21). On the J&J booster news, keep in mind: 1. Median follow-up since 2nd dose was just 36 days, 2. Efficacy vs moderate COVID was 75% globally, and 3. Total number of cases in the US was 15. Please don’t take this to mean that a 2nd dose provides long-term increase in protection.

    1. ReconfigBehSci. (2021, May 26). @Richard_Florida this is the Giesicke argument from Sweden- it makes sense only if you assume there will be no medical progress in the delay period. With vaccines and treatment improvements we know this to be empirically false. [Tweet]. @SciBeh. https://twitter.com/SciBeh/status/1397341753590489090

    1. SuzeeB🙂. (2021, September 14). Dear vaccinated, We did not take your freedom. The government did. We are not holding your freedoms to ransom. The government is. If we are a danger to you, then your vaccine doesn’t work. If it does, then you should already be free. The government has lied to you.

    1. Sir Patrick Vallance. (2021, July 19). Correcting a statistic I gave at the press conference today, 19 July. About 60% of hospitalisations from covid are not from double vaccinated people, rather 60% of hospitalisations from covid are currently from unvaccinated people.

    1. John Burn-Murdoch. (2021, August 23). NEW: in the last couple of weeks there have a lot of new studies out assessing vaccine efficacy, many of which have touched on the question of waning immunity. Unsurprisingly, these have prompted a lot of questions. Time for a thread to summarise what we do and don’t know: [Tweet]. @jburnmurdoch. https://twitter.com/jburnmurdoch/status/1429878189011111936

    1. Derek Thompson. (2021, August 25). Adult hospitalizations since July 1 vs. Vaccinations, by state: 1) The relationship between more vaccines and less hospitalization is pretty straightforward. 2) Holy moly, Florida. Among states with more than one shot per person, FL really is on its own island of pain. Https://t.co/tuTAdUT0OM [Tweet]. @DKThomp. https://twitter.com/DKThomp/status/1430643278337163267

    1. Craig Spencer MD MPH. (2021, August 6). Even with Delta, the likelihood of severe illness if you’re fully immunized is still a small fraction of the likelihood for the unvaccinated. In other words, nearly every COVID-19-related death right now is preventable with vaccination. [Tweet]. @Craig_A_Spencer. https://twitter.com/Craig_A_Spencer/status/1423674337089949710

    1. Rafael Irizarry. (2021, August 8). Vaccines work in a gif update: COVID19 cases versus vaccination rates in US states through time. The Delta variant effect can be seen clearly starting in July. States with lower vaccination rates are affected much worse.

    1. (((Howard Forman))). (2021, August 7). Steep drop in UK cases is over. 7-day moving average now back to 26.7K/day and rising. To those who said that this was over, it is not. To those who said that lifting restrictions on July 19th would have no effect, it may well have had effect. Be humble. Too many unknowns.
