    Fairly confident they have more peanut butter and less sugar

    Covid-19

    Only 3 to 5% is delta as of two weeks ago and there are very few places that can sequence the genome fast enough to make clinical decisions based on which variant you have. So, yeah, basically.

    Except they're doing both, just the treatment side doesn't make the news. They helped Pfizer prepare to scale up production of paxlovid. The feds are buying and helping them distribute an expected 20 million doses of it by June. They're helping companies scale up for production of other drugs...

    Because making mabs is hard. Supply is limited for the next few months no matter what the feds invest now. States will be stuck competing with each other for limited doses. Also, they didn't reduce distribution of the one that's effective against omicron. They just stopped distributing the...

    False. Reese's Easter bunnies have the best consistency, followed by the m&m, then regular reese's.

    Agree on both of those guys. I'd add Eric Topol and Trevor Bedford.

    Did you read my post? The only ones being revoked are the ones that don't work against omicron. That's also obvious in the link I posted. The one thing Biden has more control over is distribution. That happened a month ago. Now, the FDA revoked the EUA of the ineffective mabs. You want the...

    We do have to accept that we're all going to get it and it's a good thing that exposure expands immunity, but would you rather get it with or without the vaccine? I'll take the vaccine as my first exposures every day.

    Great, another article with no context where Desantis complains about Biden (and in this case no link to it either). As has been discussed, there's only one monoclonal antibody that's effective against omicron. The others that worked against delta and alpha don't work on omicron. So...

    I guess technically those who died didn't catch delta

    Covid-19

    Funny, and I know unvaccinated people who refused to get tested when symptomatic, but I don't know any vaccinated people who did the same. Still, I'll take data over anecdotes.

    Unless you have reason to suspect that vaccinated people are doing that and not reporting six times as often as unvaccinated people, the effect still stands.

    A good summary with citations of underlying data. https://erictopol.substack.com/p/where-do-we-stand-with-omicron

    Covid-19

    Getting the vaccine still reduces the likelihood of getting it. Chart below shows this, but I'll give a simple math example. If an unvaccinated person has a 90% chance of getting it after a high risk contact and vaccine effectiveness is now 50%, a vaccinated person has a 45% chance of getting...

    Pretty sure he's vaccinated and worried about unknown side effects for kids. I would guess it's similar to the dilemma of feeling worse about harm that comes from action vs inaction (remember the train dilemma where you do nothing and two people die or you flip the switch and you kill one...

    Who can agree that....

    Not sure if you felt the same living in Australia, but traveling and developing collaborations in other countries helped show me just how much our system protects the duopoly.

    I think you're confusing me with another poster. I didn't say that and I don't think you read mine.
