Whether we have Novavax this fall will depend upon which variant the approved vaccine is based upon.

I've said it before but I'll say it again.
It's not that everyone I know who had has developed terrible new medical issues.
It's that everyone I know who has developed terrible new medical issues recently had Covid.
And in every case I'm thinking of, it's become a health crisis within about three months of their most Covid bout. (Usually not a bad bout, either.)

Chatted with a pharmacist this week about boosters and they can only give them to folks over 65 and immunocompromised… unsure what kind of documentation that requires but province won’t pay for anything other… all the while movie industry folks I follow on social media show that everyone (actors don’t but everyone around them do) on movie sets still have to mask or they lose insurance coverage. So curious why

A reminder: epidemics and pandemics are expected to increase in frequency as the climate crisis advances [1] and as humans build deeper into wildlands [2].

So what do we do?

  1. Address the climate crisis!
  2. Embrace urbanism, controlled growth, and leave wildlands alone.
  3. Push for infrastructure improvements for indoor air quality.
  4. Push for better healthcare and sick leave policies.
  5. Advocate for better funding for scientific research.

Who was hit hardest by #covid-19? Possibly immigrants in unprotected essential jobs. Osbaldo Varilla-Aguilar and others still face lingering, sometimes extreme symptoms. #sf #longcovid

Me at Costco, wearing a , waiting for a booster.

Pharma tech calls my name, beckoning me into a small room.

Me: Would you mind masking up?

Tech: Why?

Me: Because you might have COVID.

Tech looks surprised, walks off. Returns with a cheap surgical mask: “It’s not an N95 so it won’t do much.”

Me: Better than nothing.

Tech, asking screening questions: Have you had COVID in the last 3 months?

Me: No, because I’m careful.

Tech: Yeah, me too.

Me: 🧐

Kind of sad that this is necessary, but those are the times we live in: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/violetblue/the-covid-sanity-handbook

tl;dr -- Violet Blue is creating “The Sanity Handbook”, a book about how to navigate the turbulent cultural waters around the disease.

Seems likely to be useful for a lot of folks -- spread the word…

Clarification from the USDA re:

"...interstate movement for a lactating dairy cow from a sale barn directly to a slaughter facility requires only a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) stating that the animal is clinically healthy; no testing is necessary."

I'll repeat that in case you missed it.

NO TESTING IS NECESSARY for dairy cows being sent to slaughter.

I suspect "clinically healthy" is a bit misleading in a similar way that "mild " is

Seems to be controversial 🦤🫣

So far, no one has been immune. Never happened to anyone in the last four years. Everyone gets re-infected. Some more than once per year.

We should repeat this from time to time.

And ask the big question: what does that mean? Health risks are commutative. Everyone ages. And no one ever got immunity from that virus.

gave himself a glowing self appraisal of his time in government during yesterday, proclaiming his furlough scheme as an act of morality (that incidentally was far from unique to the UK)…but what about his ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme.?

Not discussed with the chief scientific officers or the cabinet secretary.

Result: more people died.

To those who follow this account for rants and politely tolerate my posts about the wonderful and elegant programming language I’ve used almost daily for over a decade: The conference required masks because they apparently haven’t stopped caring about the people behind the keyboards.

Yes, masks. In 2024. At a tech conference. It’s a beautiful thing.

Friend: "You're the only one of my friends who hasn't gotten on a plane and traveled"

The silent part I didn't say: (so I'm the smartest friend you have...)

Also unspoken ( MAYBE BECAUSE I HAVE AND CAN'T ALWAYS BREATHE EASILY AND I CAN'T STEP OUTSIDE FOR A BREAK FROM MY MASK IF I'M ON A PLANE!)

Them: "We're getting on a cruise"

Me not silent: "Can't believe you're getting on a petri dish"

Them: "We're fine. Relax"

Relax?

Me, broken the rest of the day.

Brava! A commercial radio presenter (3AW, Melbourne) tracked down Australia's Health Minister and forced him to talk about the current COVID-19 wave.

There’s a lot of things I don’t understand, but here’s just one:

killed over a million people in the US and is still going strong.

Why does nobody talk about it?

That’s roughly 1 in 300 people.
You would know at least someone who died of it. Is it mass trauma?
