In Germany and Austria, the governments mandated that citizens wear filtering facepieces (FFP)—a European standard that offers a similar filtration system to the N95—on public transportation, in workplaces, and in shops.#N95Now fastcompany.com/90670465/rip…

The omicron variant is the most (relevantly) mutated form of the SARS2 virus discovered thus far. See assets.publishing.service.go… (where the variant is called Nu) and this nice summary via @jcbarret. 16/

The >1 year branch indicates either (1) long period of omicron circulation in places w poor genomic surveillance (ie, not South Africa but perhaps nearby), or (2) evolution in chronically infected (likely immunocompromised) individual before moving to population (more likely) 15/

So #omicron is simply going to spread worldwide. It will inevitably be identified in the USA, probably in early December. 13/

Thus, omicron has had >30 days to circulate internationally. Judging from the COVID19 pandemic so far, and given its likely R0, we may assume omicron is everywhere and that border closures are of little use (whether they will be easy to undo, politically, is another matter). 10/

🧵 Why some vaccines stop transmission & others don’t: Vaccines that stop transmission are often against viruses that replicate internally first and only then transmit (like measles). So if the vaccine stops internal replication, it stops transmission. For COVID vaccines… 1/

11/ Since #COVIDisAirborne and AIRBORNE IS THE DOMINANT mode of transmission (see our paper in @TheLancet, thelancet.com/article/S0140-…), we should recommend higher quality masks, especially for riskier situations when sharing indoor air FFP2/3, N95, or elastomeric #CleanAirHolidays

The airports and airplanes are packed. Everyone needs to being wearing masks! Wear them properly. N95 - if possible. CO2 on the plane like this means that 5% of what you are breathing came from someone else's lungs! #CleanAirHolidays

In 1767 John Hunter took the yellowish penile discharge of a man he believed to have gonorrhea and rubbed it into a wound he'd created in his own penis. He believed that gonorrhea and syphilis were two forms of the same disease. He was wrong. [Very short thread]
