“The role of monoclonal antibodies in this pandemic is increasing each day as we learn how to use them and set up more facilities for delivering them,” said @JohnsHopkinsMMI chair @ACasadevall1. slate.com/technology/202…
@JenniferNuzzo said there shouldn’t be a two-tiered system where only people with means and knowledge of the tests have access to timely results.” baltimoresun.com/coronavirus/bs…
"The concern with the U.S. health system has never been about what it is capable of achieving at its best. It is about the large disparities we tolerate," writes @Atul_Gawande. "Higher income, in particular, is associated with much longer life." newyorker.com/magazine/2021/…
"Americans hoping to fight the anti-vaccine movement must learn to use the same tools of political rhetoric and mobilization, to speak up against misinformation and to swarm lawmakers’ phone lines to oppose bills that harm public health." nytimes.com/2021/08/31/opi…
"It’s not just that Costa Rica has surpassed America’s life expectancy while spending less on health care as a percentage of income; it actually spends less than the world average." newyorker.com/magazine/2021/…
"Despite long-haulers’ fight for recognition, any discussion of the pandemic still largely revolves around two extremes—good health at one end, and hospitalization or death at the other. This ignores the hinterland of disability that lies in between..." theatlantic.com/science/archiv…
“Is access to testing constrained? I have a hunch that it may be, in many places. And: Is the test turnaround time fast enough to make public health decisions? I have a hunch that in many places, the answer to that question is, ‘No,’” said @JenniferNuzzo. baltimoresun.com/coronavirus/bs…

So public investments in safe affordable housing for low-income communities should be part of a city’s strategy to reduce crime and violence. Clean & green vacant lots, secure vacant buildings, better street lighting reduce violent crime. I see a pattern. twitter.com/patrick_sharke…

"Even if you’re healthy and vaccinated and can handle a couple days of feeling crappy while your body beats back a breakthrough infection, those you potentially infect may not be as lucky, esp. if they’re immune-compromised or too young to be vaccinated." wired.com/story/im-vacci…

"Long-haulers are growing frustrated that what is self-evident to them—their condition is very real and in need of urgent attention from those with power—is taking a worrying amount of time to be acknowledged and acted upon." theatlantic.com/science/archiv…
"Experts say, emphatically, that the expansion [of clinical trials] is not a sign that researchers are worried about general safety or efficacy in children. The vaccine has been given to hundreds of millions of adults already and has proved very safe." huffpost.com/entry/kids-und…
“I don’t think anybody would say that justice has been done,” said @drJoshS. “But [if] this is what the legal system is going to produce ... the question becomes, how can those resources be used as effectively as possible?” Our guiding principles ➡️ opioidprinciples.jhsph.edu twitter.com/nytimes/status…

"The good news is that vaccinated people aren’t as contagious as unvaccinated people, and they’re infectious for a shorter period of time, maybe a few days if they never have symptoms." wired.com/story/im-vacci…
Keep your child up-to-date with regular immunizations as you wait for approval of the COVID-19 vaccine for children under age 12. If you've fallen behind with immunizations, make an appointment with your child's pediatrician to protect them from severe disease. #VaccinesWork twitter.com/JohnsHopkinsSP…

"The goal isn’t to eliminate SARS-CoV-2 infections. We can’t, no matter how many booster shots the United States gives," writes @celinegounder. "The goal is to slow the spread, save lives, and eventually turn COVID-19 into something much less deadly." theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…

What is a microbiome? Which human microbiota are helpful, and how are some harmful? Do they cause disease or can they cure disease? Hear more from @JohnsHopkinsMMI faculty Jotham Suez (@SuezLab).
Yet a vast majority of older Americans with #HearingLoss do not use #HearingAids (<20%) based on nationally-representative data from @CDCgov (#NHANES) #HealthPolicy, including @MedicareGov, must promote accessible & affordable #HearingCare services AND devices for #HealthyAging twitter.com/johnshopkinssp…

"We now face the double challenge of keeping children safe from the delta variant and making sure they're not falling ill from other preventable diseases as they return to in-person schooling," @drJoshS said. abcnews.go.com/Health/young-c…
"'The variants are not magic,' [@ggronvall] says. 'The same things that we were doing to mitigate the legacy version are the things that we’re doing for alpha, beta, gamma, delta.'" technologyreview.com/2021/08/30/103…
"The key message is that if you’re vaccinated, you’re well protected against life-threatening disease," writes @celinegounder. theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…
"The decline in routine pediatric immunizations is very concerning because measles, pertussis and chickenpox still remain threats to child health," said @drJoshS. abcnews.go.com/Health/young-c…

“The most important thing we can do to protect schoolchildren, particularly those too young to be vaccinated, is to make sure the adults in their lives, including teachers and school staff, are vaccinated,” said @JenniferNuzzo. nytimes.com/2021/08/28/hea…
"There’s this perception that the vaccines are failing when they’re really not" wsj.com/articles/covid…
Why is there so much polarization on #COVID19 vaccines and how can we make headway with those whose politics are keeping them from protecting themselves and others? Really interesting conversation with @THCallaghan on today's episode of @PublicHealthPod twitter.com/PublicHealthPo…

"The important thing is not to immediately try to correct the misperception," says @rupali_limaye. "Instead of building trust, this can lead to the boomerang effect, where your message generates the opposite attitude or behavior of what was intended." magazine.jhsph.edu/2021/antidote-…
"In a vaccinated or even half-vaccinated society, case counts are no longer the primary metric we should be laser-focused on, according to @AmeshAA, senior scholar at @JHSPH_CHS." vox.com/future-perfect…
"@AmeshAA emphasized that the vast majority of new cases are occurring in unvaccinated people and said that the best thing people can do to prevent the spread and to avoid contracting the virus is to get vaccinated." today.com/health/it-covi…
