Another covid erasure rant
Also from conversations at the dentist: staff don't test themselves regularly any more, but they do if they have respiratory symptoms!
There's a giant list of possible covid symptoms besides those! Like headache for example! Are we in a timewarp back to spring 2020?
It's really up in my face right now how weird the world is nowadays. No longer medical professionals' jobs to know even the basic facts necessary for infection control.

Negotiating covid precautions, and the other person uses the expression "if it would make you feel more comfortable".
Wrong framing, people. It's not about how I feel! It's about whether specific viruses do or don't have the opportunity to get into my body!
I mean yeah, I _do_ feel uncomfortable when that risk is present - but that's a signal, not the actual point!

NHS, heart treatment waiting lists
"The number of patients with serious heart problems forced to wait more than 18 weeks for care has risen fivefold since Covid struck"
"Likely factors include “severe cardiac staff shortages” in the NHS, the ageing population and widening health inequalities"
And heart damage from covid, one might expect? But no mention of _that_ possibility!
Covid probably killed or disabled some of the heart experts as well.

A trend chart showing 9 data points for 2015 to 2023, of all deaths all causes in Australia.  There is a trend line drawn that shows a good downward line from the 540s to the 510s from 2015-2019, and extending that to now in 2024 shows 490s if not for the pandemic.  The actual data stayed on trend in 2020 and 2021 thanks to Australia's unique interventions (closed borders, contact tracing), with numbers either side of 500 exactly as before, within the trend line range.

Covid reinfection stats - comment
I was just talking with someone yesterday about reinfections, contrasting the reality with the early hype.
"Yeah, I've had it - got that over with!"
And then
"Everybody get the vaccine so we can go back to normal!"
And at some point it dawned on people that might not have worked, & we got the expression "breakthrough infection" - even a special name at first, for this notable event!
No, people. You can just... keep getting it again.

Covid reinfection stats, JN.1 - stats geekery
The end-of-year stats even dip into the negative. Negative numbers for protection would mean one infection leaving people _more_ susceptible to the next.
But there weren't enough people in the study to consider that statistically proven. They give a range, like saying "roughly hereabouts", and only one side of the range dips negative.
So in reality, the previous infection could still have left some small level of protection after a year.

"Zero public health projects in the history of ever have had a stated goal of “ignore it because we have to live life.” It’s fundamentally antithetical to the very concept of public health."

when "masks don't work"
What I was thinking about this morning:
Any intervention depends on both
• the tech itself
and
• people understanding how to use it.
If you don't know that covid is airborne and floats in the air like smoke... then you aren't going to know at what points a respi mask would be protective.
This explains a lot of the research where masks allegedly "don't work" against covid.

cognitive framing of covid risks
You know when people are like "you have to live your life", and it means acting as if covid doesn't exist?
I was thinking, it's as if they have covid risks conceptualised as a one-dimensional measurement spectrum like so:
{No fun, no risk} ............... {Fun and risk}
For me, it isn't like that: there's a quadrant which is "highly rewarding and little or no risk".

cool new research
Great little video explainer from Al Haddrell, about how more CO₂ in the air helps the covid virus to hang around longer.
This is _as well as_ the thing about using CO₂ to estimate what proportion of the air was breathed out by someone earlier. This is new research, about how fresh air helps to make the aerosol particles inhospitable as an environment for viruses, and additional CO₂ slows that process down.

Early on, the lab escape idea sounded to me unlikely - the kind of fiction people often get excited about.
But much reading later, if I had to bet on the likeliest:
• In 2012, when 3 people in Mojiang died after working in a bat cave, it was covid or a close relation.
• Samples went to Wuhan.
• Zhou Yusen had them & worked on vaccines.
• Maybe gain-of-function research too - but the Mojiang version was already deadly.
• Biosecurity lapses − people infected late 2019.

covid-careful voting, UK, 2/n
The voting papers should then be posted to you. You get a ballot paper, an envelope to put it in so it's secret, another bit of paper which iirc you have to sign, & a pre-paid envelope to post it in.
Then you can either post back your vote in advance, or take it to the polling station on the day. And new at the recent local elections, if you take it to the polling station you have to fill in even _another_ little form!

covid-careful voting, UK
I don't want to take off my mask in the polling station! So my work-around these days is to get a postal vote.
You still have to register to vote "ordinarily" at gov.uk, if you hadn't already - by 18 June 2024 for this next election.
Then you apply for the postal vote, by 5pm on 19 June:
