1/ If I have symptoms or test positive on a RAT test, I will isolate using a #covidisairborne plan and not exit until I test negative for two days. I'm aware how RATs work, how transmissible #Omicron is, and how long I may be infectious. #onhealth #covid19 cleanaircrew.org/someone-in-…

Ontario no longer has a quality health care system. We allowed infections to roll and burden hospitals, burn out staff, create long-term staff issues, long covid health pressures, and we have millions w/o access to proper levels of care, including a million backlogged surgeries.

This will impact the quality of life and actual life span of Ontarians, especially seniors and those with health issues. I don't see how the impacts don't last at least a generation. The impact of our covid policies during the pandemic will cast a long shadow and affect everyone.

Five years from now, feel free to correct me if I am wrong about any of this.

If police in Texas can't handle a single shooter with an assault rifle, maybe the problem is the legality of assault rifles? Just a thought.

Our society should not be this screwed up yet here we are. Something needs to change, we cannot allow hatred and abuse to drown out science, facts, and caring. Too many are exploiting "freedom of speech" to intimidate and push dangerous agendas, even here in Canada.

I ask each of you to not be a bystander. Demand change. Extremists and ignorance cannot be allowed to destroy our country or the best of our society. Do not underestimate the threat.

June-Dec 2021 saw Ontario average 205 #Covid19 deaths per month as we vaccinated, masked and took precautions. Since March 1, we are averaging 407 per month, almost double. The public health strategy of #livingwithcovid and managing our own risk has been a deadly failure. #onpoli

The storyline that "Omicron is mild" and that masks are a personal choice along with other precautions has cost a lot of unnecessary deaths. March - to - April shown here was *after* the disastrous January - February wave. #onhealth #covid19ontario

No one that I know declared the last seven months of 2021 as a return to normal or endemic. Yet here we are with deaths much higher now and pretending this is an acceptable level of deaths. My banner sadly predicted this popular psychological denialism.

What a sick society.
Good lord. I don't know that I've ever been more physically affected by a chart.

Major new #LongCovid analysis. "findings suggest that vaccination before infection confers only partial protection in the post-acute phase of the disease; hence, reliance on it as a sole mitigation strategy may not optimally reduce long-term health consequences" #onhealth
The latest from our team in @NatureMedicine Does vaccination protect from #LongCovid? Vaccines modestly reduce but do not eliminate risk of Long Covid @VAResearch @vahsrd @WUSTLmed @WUSTLnews @VREFSTL @Biostayan @BCBowe nature.com/articles/s41591-0… A thread 🧡

Full abstract. To summarize, BTI (breakthrough infections) still present significant elevated risks of serious post-acute sequelae, including death.
