"The public's health is intimately linked to politics and policy. In order to advance understanding of the drivers of health in an era of emerging infectious disease and global pandemics, more political scientists must begin to do what we are uniquely well situated to do: analyze in a contextualized way the pathways and mechanisms through which power configurations cause illness and inequity."

COVID Virus Ventures Beyond the Lungs, Often Lodging in the Brain

Activation of endothelial cells brings platelets that stick to the blood vessel walls, causing clots and leakage…the tight junctions between the endothelial cells get disrupted, causing leakage…immune cells …may come to repair the damage, setting up inflammation. This causes damage to neurons.

To prevent another pandemic what needs to be done:
Shut down the wild animal markets and farms.
Stop the trafficking in exotic animals.
Practice strict biosecurity for factory farming.
Limit and regulate small/backyard farms.
Fund #publichealth
Fund basic research.
After the example of SARS, can we expect any limit on exotic animals being exposed to novel viruses to end in China? From what I can see, biosecurity in China is not enough. It needs to be like preventing fire in an oil refinery.

"It is imperative to conduct comprehensive investigations on the source of COVID-19 by tight international collaborations. Otherwise, the
world remains vulnerable to future pandemic of serious infectious diseases."

This is obviously nonsense. That doesn't stop it being repeated like prayers on a rosary. The whirlpool that is funding/publishing is a baptism that converts researchers into hucksters.

What is one thing you wish people understood about the pandemic?* One solitary specific thing.

For me, right now, it's that pathogenic diseases are driven by exposure to pathogens, not by stranger danger.

I'm not sure we ever collectively learned that lesson during the AIDS crisis and it doesn't look like most people understand it today, either.

Researchers Are Getting Closer to Learning How to Treat and Prevent Long COVID

"The latest hopeful news relates to metformin, an accessible and affordable drug that’s been FDA-approved to treat Type 2 diabetes since the 1990s. Metformin, which belongs to a class of drugs called biguanides, is taken as a liquid or pill and works by controlling the amount of sugar in the blood. It also decreases inflammation in the body."

We don’t come home with food poisoning from a restaurant because of food safety standards.

We don’t have to deal with measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria etc because of immunisation schedules.

We don’t worry about legionella because of building regulations.

In the US, the #COVID public health emergency may lapse on May 11. That means… funding for stuff you now get for #free will disappear.

If you have insurance, your insurance is required to reimburse you for 8 #tests per insured person per calendar month.

E.g., 2 adults + 2 kids = 32 tests (16 2-packs) per month

So… you can still get 3 months’ worth FREE IF you place an order in March, then in April, then in May (before the 11th!).

Just sitting here in Year 4 of a murderous #pandemic, thinking I probably won't ever see the inside of a movie theater again in this lifetime, because it's an easily-avoidable risk and because the polity I live in decided to yeet #PublicHealth for the benefit of the billionaire class. And then my social media feeds melt down in bullshit about a movie industry awards ceremony deathparty, and sorry-not-sorry, I'm just NOT fucking here for it. #Oscars

Am I bitter? I sound bitter.

This frustrating story has echoes of the Trump Administration's disastrous efforts wrt research funding for abuse prevention.

The misplaced focus on "Stranger Danger" here is just one of the problems.

And, while understandable, it's also frustrating to see NPR dedicate so much space to this purported "documentary" while valid prevention efforts receive no coverage.

📚 Interparental Coercive Control and Child and Family Outcomes: A Systematic Review.

The ongoing dangers of coercive control:

“CC [coercive control] was associated with increased parental psychopathology, poorer family functioning, harsher parenting and higher levels of child abuse, strained parent-child relationships, children used as tools and co-victims of CC, increased risk of child internalizing and externalizing problems, limited socializing opportunities, increased bullying, poorer perinatal outcomes, limited access to healthcare, and increased risk of child mortality. Evidence identified CC as a unique contributor to adverse child wellbeing outcomes, independent of exposure to IPV more broadly.”

You've probably heard that there are more guns than people in the United States. But just how many guns are there in America?

Data on gun ownership in the United States is scant and most available estimates have relied on surveys, background checks, or other proxies to get around the fact that there's no requirement for gun registration.

The reality is the rapid evolution of Covid-19 and its subvariant offspring has severely limited our arsenal of effective therapeutics, especially for the immunosuppressed.

“Protecting the vulnerable” doesn’t mean only wearing a mask when you visit higher risk people a couple times a year. It means actively fighting for their right to participate in society every day. Leaders are not “protecting the vulnerable,” they are discriminating against them.
