Auch die nächste Pandemie - wann auch immer sie kommt - wird zu einer Welle chronischer Krankheit führen. So wie die aktuelle #Covid19-Pandemie und wie jede Pandemie zuvor.

Dazu ein paar Gedanken in einem 🧵.

Aber Achtung: das ist keine Prognose, sondern eine Analogie.
Man stelle sich also vor, in 10 Jahren käme die die FUV-Pandemie (">F<uture >U<nknown >V<irus").

Auch dieses Virus verursacht chronische Krankheit, die - oh Wunder - oft die Diagnosekriterien von #MECFS erfüllt. Man nennt es diesmal "chronic FUViD": die chronische FUV-Krankheit.
Weil man #Longcovid nach der #Covid19-Pandemie genauso verdrängt, ignoriert und stigmatisiert hat wie alle Fälle chronischer infektassoziierter Erkrankungen zuvor, werden die "Experten" ob dieses "Phänomens" wieder sehr "überrascht" sein.

Our first keynote at #RANZCP2021 today will be from Carole Warshaw, director of the US National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health
Warshaw talking emergence of trauma theory and how powerful it was for survivors - DV not a psychiatric condition but has many MH and substance use related effects. Reframing #RANZCP2021
Coercive control at the heart of DV, physical violence may be a threat to enforce but not always most prominent aspect, says Warshaw. Like being in a hostage situation, aided and abetted by systems - legal, migration and medical #RANZCP2021

This afternoon I will be tweeting from #RANZCP2021 sessions on mental health workforce, and DV, trauma & substance use. John Allan getting us underway now. @croakeynews will be covering sessions on ADHD, and the MH of veterans and first responders
The psychiatry workforce is ageing, and about 50:50 public vs private says Allan. Stressors include too much work to do with not enough time to do it #ranzcp2021
Just 6 psychiatrists in Australia service very remote regions. SIX! Versus 2,671 in the cities. Significant rural maldistribution #RANZCP2021

Back on deck at #RANZCP2021, tweeting from a session on the @ozprodcom inquiry into mental health. Discussions chaired by Harvey Whiteford from @QCMHR, who was associate commissioner. @CroakeyNews will be covering the session on aged care
Intros to Whiteford. First psychiatrist ever appointed to the @WorldBank, first advisory psychiatrist to the federal government. Will be talking to us about the @ozprodcom inquiry and last week's federal budget #RANZCP2021
Inquiry spanned 18 months from Oct 2018 to June last year, with report released in Nov. Was the biggest @ozprodcom inquiry ever, 1300 submissions from a spectrum of stakeholders, says Whiteford #RANZCP2021

It wouldn't be a COVID-era conference without technical difficulties, but I am finally online at #RANZCP2021, hearing from @jasonleitch on experiences from Scotland
Really interesting presentation from @jasonleitch on continence bundles in care homes and importance of person-centred care. Many downstream effects #RANZCP2021
Hearing about NHS Near Me from @jasonleitch. Obviously a huge thing during #COVID19. Consulting with patients and practitioners about what they wanted in this new era. Patients: a receptionist to help them navigate; practitioners: a mix of live and telehealth patients #RANZCP2021

After posting about sharply rising #COVID19 cases Friday, there were multiple replies to the effect of "but deaths aren't going up". As should be obvious to most at this point, (reported) deaths lag (reported) cases. This thread investigates. 1/8
There is a lag between when a case is diagnosed and when the individual may succumb to their disease and there is a further lag between date of death and when the death is reported. 2/8
Here, I compare state-level data from @COVID19Tracking for cases and deaths and find that a 22-day lag maximizes state-level correlations. 3/8

I know that everyone has been (justifiably) distracted by other things, but the #COVID19 epidemic in the US is looking pretty dire with 125,552 confirmed cases reported Friday by @COVID19Tracking. 1/10
Please consider this somewhat of a follow up to the thread two weeks ago on circulation patterns across states. 2/10
Confirmed cases have continued to tick up across the US, though with the Midwest and Mountain West contributing to most of the recent increase. Data from @COVID19Tracking. 3/10 Image

The trillion dollar question. Why are COVID cases increasing while deaths are decreasing? The answer is simple. It's called Simpson's paradox and it's the result of incorrectly pooling data and arriving at a false conclusion. A thread 1/9 #COVID19 #ThursdayThoughts
2/9 If you lump the data and look at the US as a whole, you'll observe: Cases are increasing, positivity rate is increasing, hospitalizations are increasing, and deaths are decreasing. Until recently, it also looked liked hospitalizations were decreasing and positivity was flat. Image
3/9 It would be rational to come to the following conclusions. "Young people are getting it now, not old people." "We've gotten better at treating it, the death rate has fallen." "We're testing more people, so we're seeing more cases." Twitter is awash with these.

I’ve landed in Hong Kong after flying from Paris CDG, via London Heathrow. I now have to wait ~8 hours before I get my #COVID19 test results and thus have ample time to tweet about my experience.
At CDG, the @British_Airways check-in staff wore masks and gloves. Masks are mandatory inside the airport. But on the plane to London, and on my next flight to HK, no BA staff wore masks, surprisingly.
The captain on my LHR > HKG flight said there were about 100 of us on the plane. That means the Boeing 777 was at 1/3 of its capacity. Every single passenger (except someone who apparently had special permission to connect to Brunei) will enter some sort of quarantine.

CA is flattening the curve, but the reality is #COVID19 is not going away soon.

Our re-opening must be gradual, guided by public health and science, and will be done in the following STAGES:
STAGE 1: Safety and Preparedness.

This is where we are now.

Staying home and flattening the curve.

Building out our testing, PPE, and hospital capacity.

Making our essential workplaces as safe as possible.

And preparing sector-by-sector guidelines for a safe re-opening.
STAGE 2: Lower Risk Workplaces

Gradually re-opening some lower risk workplaces with adaptations.

This will include:
- Retail (e.g. curbside pickup)
- Manufacturing
- Offices (when telework not possible)
- More public spaces

I wanted to respond to news of #COVID19 death in Santa Clara County on Feb 6. This is an interesting, if slightly puzzling, data point. 1/9
We know that there is very little genetic diversity in global samples of SARS-CoV-2, which points to emergence in ~Nov 2019 in Wuhan, China. We know that once community spread is established it ramps quickly in the absence of social distancing. 2/9
Rate of increase in confirmed cases as well as genomic data suggests a 3-4 day doubling rate. If we look at the abundantly sequenced WA cases we see evidence for an introduction in late January that leads to the majority of cases in March. Figure from…. 3/9

Out of an abundance of caution and care, both @Twitter and @Square are taking significant measures to help lower the probability of spread of #coronavirus #covid19, including strongly encouraging all of our employees globally to work from home if able. More here:
