It’s time to invest in next generation COVID vaccines that not only prevent severe disease but also block infection and transmission. It makes sense to induce mucosal immunity to fight a mucosal viral infection. My opinion in @nytimes today👇🏽…

Why the different covers for different demographics? I would argue the Slovak cover looks nicest, and is most similar to the English edition cover!
Replying to @IntegralProtein
Each cover is designed by the local publisher who acquired the rights to the book in their country and translated it into their language. For all my books, I’ve been consistently fascinated by the different takes!

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.

Vermont—the most vaccinated state in the US—now has 12/14 counties in the “high community level” and its hospital admissions are approaching its Omicron peak. Its experience reaching this level highlights some of the limitations of the CDC guidance.

I’m a technical, scientific person and I understand what ML can do. I still can’t help feeling like I’m missing something when ML is used this way. There’s no way to validate the predictions, so this strikes me as no more than an amplification of bias in the data and algorithms.
Replying to @doritoeubanks @sciencecohen and 1 otherfalse
The papers I link to have some details on validation if you want to dig in. They hold some of the virus data back from the training and then test the ML against it.
