Insulin was invented ~100 years ago, and its patent sold for $1. “Do you know the reason why [insulin is] $1,000 with insurance?” ~@AOC There is no reason for insulin to cost $21 in Canada for a 10 ml bottle, while it costs a mortgage payment in the US. https://t.co/K5XRJDTpJq

⚠️AIRBORNE >6 FEET / 2 METERS! The CDC finally acknowledged #SARSCoV2 has major transmission via airborne aerosols beyond 6 feet / 2 meters, not just close contact. The CDC/WHO & airborne deniers are a year late—and negligently endangered many. #COVID19 🧵 https://t.co/1YMqDGbD0v https://t.co/DUm5FA3V90

3) “In a statement, the church’s leaders attributed the outbreak to a recent rise in covid-19 cases in Marion County, Ore. Murray said the church, which has held in-person services throughout the pandemic, intends to continue with in-person ceremonies on Sunday.

19) VENTILATION is key. Both ventilation and masks needed to reduce risk indoors. But most buildings not ventilated well enough.

18) Now that aerosol transmission of the coronavirus is established, we need to disperse aerosols quickly. Key is ventilation. 🇯🇵 assumed it was airborne from the beginning. Here is how to ventilate your school classrooms if unable to open window. #COVID19 https://t.co/ZiOdMG2GPs

⚠️VIRUS IS AIRBORNE. Repeat, the #SARSCoV2 coronavirus is airborne. Epidemiologists & aerosol Scientists have been saying it for months. Now 239 scientists have penned a letter to @WHO, coming out next week, demanding WHO acknowledgement. Implications? 🧵 https://t.co/qJo7EZQUnc

17) Here was the famous prescient letter by 239 aerosol Scientists who demanded the WHO acknowledge it is airborne and risky beyond 6 feet. Some uptight people attacked me for saying in all capital letters. They can now be written into history books for endangering lives. https://t.co/yqMgkXYAbf

2) “I think the WHO is being irresponsible in giving out [that virus doesn't seem capable of spreading through air over distance >3 feet]. This misinformation is dangerous," says Dr. Donald Milton, infectious dis aerobiologist @UMDPublicHealth. #COVID19. https://t.co/oC1Nmo858W

16) Seriously, who inside the WHO made Dr Tedros walk back his comments that the coronavirus was airborne? He was right. Yet the rest of WHO kept saying the virus doesn’t spread over 3-6 feet. We have receipts damnit. https://t.co/qadPMiTONA

⚠️WHO can’t seem to get its own airborne info straight: @WHO says virus of #COVID19 doesn't seem to linger in air. Yet @DrTedros himself previously said himself “Ebola is lousy... Corona is airborne”. (See video of Tedros saying it). Many experts also agree it is airborne... 1/x https://t.co/YUAsccw5pL

15) March 31 2020 — Dr Tedros said it was airborne. That’s well over 13 months ago. I’m told people internal inside WHO forced Dr Tedros to walk it back. I want to know who the heck made him do that. Let’s give Dr Tedros some credit he said what others didn’t want him to say. https://t.co/e31UJV2JTx

14) That said, while CDC update is good, CDC left out a few things. This letter penned by major aerosol scientists point out the CDC’s accompanying editorial still misleading, and will “lead people to continue to think that maintaining distance is sufficient”.
