- California has the highest poverty rate in US
- Homeless population increased 30% in California but declined 18% in rest of US, 2000-2020
- Every major California city has been taken over by dangerous open drug scenes (“homeless encampments”) twitter.com/GavinNewsom/st…
Listening to @drdrewafterdark in a different time zone with @Firstladyoflove as the sun sets. We are taking time to do what’s important together as a couple for our 30th anniversary. 🌞 @ Firá, Kikladhes, Greeceinstagram.com/p/CQIZmAzNVIE/…m
So, why worry about variants you ask? Mainly because they make the virus more transmissible (basically by sneaking past an interferon response meant to block them as Dr. Vincent Racaniello explains to us (wrote TEXTBOOK on Virology); won't evade vaccines
When legends like @brucep13 and Dr. Marik come together and collaborate to solve #longcovid#longhaulers. Physician led and physician driven!!! This is amazing. Dr. P. showing the persisting COVID protein data and dropping the 🔨!C
We are in the midst of a nationwide drug epidemic. An estimated 90,000 people died from an overdose in the last year, primarily due to fentanyl overdose. Fentanyl is fatal, killing more people than guns and car crashes. Fentanyl overdoses will continue to rise due to popularity..
The U.S. is in the midst of a drug emergency not a climate emergency. The 3,000-to-1 death toll should make that obvious. But visions of the secular apocalypse and taboos around drugs have triumphed over truth and reason. The longer the confusion lasts, the more people will die.
“My daughter died from one pill”
“I woke up next to 3 people dead"
“I found my son on the floor”
Drug deaths 2000: 17k
Drug deaths 2020: 90k
- Break-up the open drug scenes
- Mandate treatment
- $1B for PSAs
@megynkelly Absolute madness. It’s time to recognize people are living in a distorted state of fear when in reality, the risk is negligible outdoors (indoors too). Take the masks off our children - they are doing more harm than good at this point.
@brucep13 and I will be on @drdrew this Friday at 12pm EST/9am PST to discuss our #longhauler#longcovid program and updates on the research and science.
I am fairly certain we are going to say "macrophages", "CCR5" and "proteins".
Well, @jeffm1981@boulware you know my feelings on ID- I think Infectious Diseases MDs should have been informing response more all along. ID MDs know: 1) immunology; 2) virology; 3) what our patients say about what it feels like to live in US (esp if poor) during COVID twitter.com/jeffm1981/stat…
We are in the midst of a MASSIVE mental health crisis and a MASSIVE addiction crisis. In LA county alone, we lose 4 people a day on average. In California, the death rate is 15 per 100,000. Ever wonder what’s going on inside all those tents on the street?
