In case you missed it, the United States passed ONE MILLION COVID DEATHS OFFICIALLY.
I believe that the number is greater than that, but, let’s just take it as is.
ONE MILLION COVID DEATHS.
I will never get past my belief that..
90-95% of the last 500,000 COVID DEATHS
DID NOT NEED TO HAPPEN.
DID NOT NEED TO HAPPEN.
46 and his Administration have put the COVID Vaccine on practically every other corner in America.
But, the same people who won’t mask up…
Are the same people who yelled OPEN THE ECONOMY…
Are the same people who won’t get vaccinated…
But, somehow, this is supposed to be President Biden’s fault?
No, I don’t think so.
Let’s get Moderna approved for children 6 months – 5 years, so that vulnerable population can get vaccinated.
Get boosters and second boosters for all age groups, 5 and up.
Get more advertising of the success of new antiviral treatment for COVID
Keep on giving home tests.
Keep on wearing the KN-95s
We need more research into long-term COVID.
We need to discuss honestly, about the disabled from long-term COVID.
The count of U.S. deaths from COVID-19 is nearing 1 million. A breakdown of that number shows which groups have been hit the hardest by the virus.
Here are some takeaways. https://t.co/FyqZc7Lki1

If someone needs a reminder why fighting Covid-19 is better than living with it, this thread will give you an idea, especially when you have kids.
So, do you really think masks, testing, and if necessary, an early lockdown (Shenzhen), is such a bad idea? https://t.co/Bz4PjOTrB8

Clear signs of 5th wave in SA, the positivity ratio is as high as the previous 4 waves! Please take care and do not be fooled that a new variant is needed to cause a new wave, Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 are antigenic distinct from BA.1 as other variants were from each other. https://t.co/TuiznzC1wj

Children get #LongCovid, too, and it can show up in unexpected ways. ~13M children have tested positive for Covid since the pandemic's start, according to the Amer. Academy of Pediatrics. Studies suggest ~2% to 10% of those children will develop #LongCovid https://t.co/fikgy94Nvx pic.twitter.com/dQ5oinY6gD

@michaelzlin sounds like a nice combination with #Paxlovid: Immediately after testing positive, give interferon to ensure early+sufficient immune reaction getting started, after few days start Paxlovid course.
Might lower Paxlovid viral rebound effect?

This is because of the Native Population
Arizona was the only state last year where vaccination rates in rural counties topped those in urban counties, according to the CDC. Public health experts say vaccine outreach and a community-first spirit among Native Americans is what made difference. https://t.co/hmPtphmbWt

These poor children
Deep racial disparities among American kids who lost at least one parent or caregiver to COVID reflect the course of a disease that has illuminated inequities in areas such as healthcare in the United States https://t.co/uWRZ5hbzym pic.twitter.com/3dbTCR3QJG

I don't know if they caught a strain the vaccines don't cover or if the vaccine doesn't last as long in elderly patients, but y'all out here giving your grandpas and grannies COVID and I don't like it.
