@JamesCTobias It's problematic that there are behind-the-scenes coordinated efforts to put out publications & reports shutting down the lab #OriginOfCovid hypothesis from as early as January 2020 - and we're only putting the pieces together in January 2022. Waiting for reporters to report.

I've written a lot about data communications over the years, particularly in Haiti and Nepal. The same problems are here in the US COVID response. And I want everyone to understand... Data obfuscation is *intentional.*

Precautionary principle everyone. There is so much we don’t know, but there is a lot we know, and that lot is concerning. Article here (non-paywalled):

5 day isolation is the same economy driven "public health" as the pingdemic. It just kicks the can down the road & potentially makes things worse? 1. Cases not controlled 2. Isolation interrupts fewer transmission chains 3. Increased exposure, including CEV, long COVID Repeat.

@DmodosCutter @DrJinRussell @EnemyInAState @chrischirp it's the usual nonsense - 'hosp low for no. of cases' - essentially saying that it's down to the *huge* increase in cases in children- which let's remember was always preventable. Just read the list of commentators on that article - they've minimised pretty much everything so far

Today I was asked to pick up our son early because of another exposure at daycare. Tonight I just walked by a bar with dozens of unmasked people and a large live band in a tiny tiny space. We need to get our damn priorities straight.

Here are Canada's new daily deaths. We've passed Wave 3 and 4 peaks. By Tuesday or Wednesday we'll pass the Wave 2 peak. The day after we'll pass the Wave 1 peak. By early February we'll be at 500 new deaths/day, nearly 3X higher than worst of epidemic in Canada to date.

In the next 4 weeks, about 16,000 people living in Canada will die from COVID-19 infections contracted in the past 4 weeks. Just under 10,000 of these deaths will be reported. Other countries have shown that this can be prevented with Omicron. We chose these deaths.

Absences too. Students and staff. Some indication here that the 30% threshold for reporting absences may be too high, perhaps? Via @chrischirp during @IndependentSage today:

A glimpse into the future. But of course, if you don't test, it will look like there is nothing there. Does not mean it is not there. Assuming our cognition has achieved object permanence, of course. Via @chrischirp during @IndependentSage today:
