Whooping cough / covid erasure
BBC & UKHSA giving "immunity debt" rhetoric...
"Dr Ben Rush, from the UK Health Security Agency in the East Midlands, said ... “We were expecting a spike in cases, particularly after the reduced social mixing from the pandemic ... But it is a bigger spike than many of us were expecting.”"
Well that would probably be because you're in denial about covid's role in messing up people's immune systems.

“Efforts to treat COVID more like the flu fail to recognize that COVID is not the flu, COVID is COVID — a virus that, per the CDC’s own resources, is more contagious than the flu, can cause more severe illness than the flu, causes more post-viral illness than the flu, and is infectious to others longer than the flu”

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.

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".

It gives me great scientific joy that
1. my calibration of the Zurich wastewater prevalences was confirmed by the resumption of the representative cohort SentiSurv RLP, and that
2. after almost complete exchange by a saltation variant, the calibration continues to closely align with SentiSurv RLP and the calibrated German wastewater prevalences. Additionally, it is supported…

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.

UKHSA Winter CIS estimates SARS2 hospitalisation risk.
Average risk: 0.45% (1 in 224)
Risk of individuals age 75 : 3.3% (1 in 30)
Cumulative infection incidence in England from Nov 14 until March 3 was 25%.
Mild, isn't it.

new research on how covid gets into cells
We already knew that the covid virus can get into cells via the ACE2 receptor.
Some cells don't have that receptor, yet the viruses still get into them - how?
"Here, we identified the transferrin receptor (TfR) as another receptor that mediates SARS-CoV-2 entry by directly binding to the virus spike protein with high affinity."
That might sound bad - but it's good that we know! Could point to treatments.

Ongoing pandemic, update:
The burden of disease by Covid is much higher than the burden by influenza, as evident by UKHSA/NHS SARI Watch data.
Note the scale on the ICU/HDU figures.

Guardian covid erasure (again)
This morning, the Guardian gives us a whole article about the increasing rate of strokes in the UK - somehow failing to mention the word "covid" at all.
Instead of a link to their denialtastic article, here's some actual research on covid, strokes etc:
"People who survived the first 30 d of COVID-19 exhibited increased risk of stroke (hazard ratio (HR) = 1.52 (1.43, 1.62)"

This winter, Switzerland experienced a severe Covid wave. This is evident in prevalences and derived incidences, as well as in hospitalisations and mortality. The metrics correlate.
This year, the effects of SARS2 can unequivocally be discriminated from influenza.
