Pakistan's economy is not in a good place - per capita income has not risen in 3 years (in fact down slightly)

Even over the last 20 years, income per capita has grown at a paltry 1.9%

Lesson 4: Remember the end COVID or no COVID, think of your own mortality, often. It puts everything in perspective and allows us to make brave, meaningful decisions Herd immunity is good; herd mentality is bad
Replying to @FaheemYounus
Lesson 5: Know your risk tolerance Get boosted, wear a KN/N95 mask. If COVID still gets you, you’ll likely fully recover That family gathering was important for me. But your risk tolerance could be different Comply with science, then follow your heart End.

Lesson 3: Practice what you preach I didn’t need monoclonal antibodies, steroids, antibiotics or paxlovid etc. Symptomatic therapy (that I’ve shared many times before) was enough Definitely didn’t use ivermectin, HCQ, zinc:) Protocols for severe disease are different

Lesson 2: Vaccines work You know the vaccine+booster did its job when the patient is back to work after 5-days (with a mask:) and telling his story on Twitter instead of fighting for his life on a ventilator I thank vaccines. I thank God

Lesson 1: Masks work I’ve been around COVID patients over 1000 times in ~2 years and didn’t get infected due to masks/PPE But was exposed for 2-days at a maskless family gathering and COVID got me So yes. Masks work. Wear an N95 or KN95 if you can

Personal News: Omicron got me:)

Two weeks ago I developed symptoms and tested +ve

Sharing five lessons I learned from that experience and hoping you’ll find them helpful

Phenomenal paper just published in Science persuasively demonstrating that EBV causes most if not all multiple sclerosis.

Phenomenal epidemiological design and technical achievement. 👏

Impact of social distancing OVER a month.

Health-care workers are facing pandemic fatigue.

Hospitals are being put under strain “inch by inch” as record infections push up overall admissions, even with fewer severe cases and less time requiring care. This has collided with a depleted workforce trib.al/0M8lRIM

Myth: Omicron is mild. Let’s not worry about it

A: You won’t hang out with a lion even if the lion was *less* ferocious

Omicron cases double every 2-d compared to every 2-wks for Delta. Just the sheer number of extra patients causes more hosp/deaths

Get boosted. Wear masks
 
Concerning News: Immune Escape

Previous COVID does NOT protect against an Omicron reinfection

Previous COVID + vaccinated offers best protection

Huge potential negative implications for countries who suffered mass casualties due to delta

Long COVID is real but don’t believe extreme narratives. Why?

- No single definition
- No objective criteria
- RCTs will take years
- Too charged a subject
- Inherent reporting bias

Best course is to manage case by case and neither be dismissive nor alarmist. Time will tell

How it works:

Masks: Prevent infections
Distancing: Prevent spread
Vaccines: Prevent hospitalizations

Arguing: Prevents nothing

More than 580,000 new cases of COVID-19 were diagnosed in children and teens last week. This is the highest one-week tally at any time in the pandemic and it brings the total number of children who have tested positive for COVID to nearly 8.5 million.
 
Myth: Vaccines don’t work or why would COVID deaths rise in the US

Fact: US is only 62% vaccinated; ~70 million unvaccinated Americans are driving COVID deaths

Portugal ⬇️ is ~90% vaccinated. COVID deaths are flat despite cases rising

Vaccines work. Excuses don’t work

Fauci: Why would a Senator want to do this? Go to Rand Paul’s website and you see fire Dr. Fauci with a little box that says contribute here. So you are making catastrophic epidemic for your political gain

I fully agree that the single best action individuals (and governments) can be taking to reduce impact of the Omicron wave is to get booster dose if already vaccinated and to get vaccinated if not. 1/14

As a result, Black neighborhoods have faced half a billion $ in penalties for camera tickets alone.

If you’re vaccinated your risk of…

COVID hospitalization = 0.015%
COVID death = 0.003%

If you’re unvaccinated, your risk is off the charts. See below

Jumping in late here: Let’s not use words like deltacron, flurona or flurone. Please 🙏

These words imply combination of viruses/variants & this is not happening. “Deltacron” is likely contamination during sequencing, #SARSCoV2 continues to evolve & see flu co-infection🧵below.
 
Retweet if you know someone who has NOT gotten COVID so far

Tell the world that prevention is possible
 
Fear Mongering

Media generated words like *Deltacron* and *Florona* scare ppl of a threat that isn’t there

One person having two viral infections is nothing earth shattering

How sick some souls must be to turn a pandemic into business

Yet vaccines are a *conspiracy*

Please, please do NOT buy into this.

This thread - on the damage of COVID infection - has one purpose: to induce fear.

It’s not good science or good public health messaging now that we have vaccines.

Worst of all it’s outdated. Nearly every study cited is from pre-vaccines 💉

How to manage the cost of KN/N95 masks? Reuse.

Don’t discard your mask daily

Buy 2-KN95 masks. Keep alternating them for weeks (until they aren’t broken/damaged)

It’s not ideal. But 100-times better than not wearing a good quality mask due to affordability issues
 
مری کے حادثے پر شدید صدمہ ہوا۔ انا للّٰہ و انا الیہ رجعون

جاننا ضروری ہے کہ:

اموات سردی کی وجہ سے ہوئیں یا کا ربن مانو آکسایڈ کی وجہ سے؟ جب برف میں کار کا سایلینسر دب جاۓ تو یہ زہریلی گیس کار میں پھیل سکتی ہے۔ اس کی کوئ بو نہی ہوتی

Tragic news from #Murree

Were the deaths caused by cold or carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning? CO is odorless, lethal

If an idling car is buried in snow, the blocked exhaust (silencer) can quickly kill the passengers as they breath CO

ALL 35 CHILDREN admitted to South Carolina Children’s Hospitals with COVID are UNVACCINATED. Every one. Of those, 14 are not eligible because they are too young. 10 children are critically ill from the virus in ICU. One is on life support. #GetVaccinatedNow

🚨I wrote about what this surge is doing to the healthcare system.
It's bad.
Though less severe, Omicron is spreading quickly enough to inundate hospitals, which can't handle the strain cos so many healthcare workers had quit or are now sick. 1/

In today’s Supreme Court case, lawyers who have COVID and aren’t allowed in the Supreme Court building are arguing that other people should have to go to work with unvaccinated/untested people.
 
COVID and Children: Quick facts from the U.S

Cases and hospitalizations are increasing
7.5 million tested + (~17% of total)

Unvaccinated people face the most risk from Omicron. Data from New York show that vaccines continue to provide excellent protection against severe illness.
 
COVID patients in my hospitals:

76% are UNVACCINATED
24% had received 1 or 2 shots
0% boosted

Can you see a pattern?
 
Look at the STRONG decoupling between COVID cases and deaths in UK

Yes. That’s how the vaccines work
 
100% of ventilators in my hospitals are being used by COVID patients today.

Mask up. Get boosted. Avoid gatherings.

A Dangerous, Careless Idea:

“Omicron is so contagious that everyone will get it. No point trying to prevent it. It’s the best vaccine.”

Please don’t fall for it. Wear a mask and avoid gathering. In a few weeks this wave will recede.

You can/should prevent this infection
 
Study: Boosters reduced the risk of COVID death by 90%

- Randomized controlled trial
- Pfizer vaccine 2 shots vs 3 shots
- Mean age of patients 68.5 years
- Conducted during Delta peak

Other studies show a similar benefit against Omicron too
