I am a physician. This comes with a serious responsibility to act competently to advance human flourishing, mostly thru care. That MD doesn’t make me expert in policy or human nature; yet,my silence in the face of cruelty and injustice would be a dereliction of my duty to care.

Opinion: Hospital CEOs and academic leaders at the level of deans and presidents should devote their full attention to their day jobs and defer positions on the boards of for-profit companies to the post-leadership phase of their careers.

True breakthroughs in medicine are exceedingly rare. It is even more rare—actually unprecedented—for they to be announced by a politician, no less a @POTUS In the context of other magic and cures that have similarly been proclaimed in recent months, this all aligns well.

Latest #coronavirus research:

• SARS-CoV-2 mutation linked to milder symptoms.

• Mapped: 3D shape of spike proteins that are part of intact SARS-CoV-2 particles.

• First evidence that antibodies protect humans against re-infection.

La scuola DEVE aprire. Come e con quali strumenti, non deve deciderlo il cittadino o la rete, ci sono le autorità preposte che se ne assumeranno la responsabilità. Tenere le scuole chiuse sarebbe una sconfitta sociale, culturale, storica.

Observational studies of #COVID19 treatments must include caveats about the uncertainty surrounding the results, and should be a step toward RCTs, not a substitute for them

In 2019, 5% of US prescriptions were delivered by mail. At end of March, mail order surged 21% more. (h/t @politicopulse) Bound to be even higher now. Making sure the post office delivers is essential to people’s lives.

Kristin Urquiza, who garnered national attention after she penned an obituary for her dad who died from COVID-19, says her father’s “only preexisting condition was trusting Donald Trump, and for that, he paid with his life.” #DemConvention

Recovery is more than a normal lab test. Recovery means someone feels whole again, emotionally healthy and has healed. Caregivers do more than treat lab abnormalities ... they promote healing.

Opening schools safely is key to reducing inequalities in education and beyond.

#JulianAssange - indicted for the crime of revealing evidence of war crimes - is detained since over a year in @hmpbelmarsh max security prison. Not allowed to see his lawyers, family since March. The #UK is torturing a journalist in plain sight. #JournalistsSpeakUpForAssange

While health has often been viewed as a cost, the #COVID19 pandemic shows how critical health investment is to national security. It has pushed health systems, both weak and strong, to the limits. No country has been left untouched. It’s time for #HealthForAll!

There is no randomized trial data to assess the efficacy of convalescent plasma. You can “see signs” in observational data, but to know if a therapy lowers mortality, you must do a randomized trial. There is no randomized trial showing this mortality reduction.

“Most people don’t set out to maintain racial disparities, but do so inadvertently, and the scientific community is not exempt.”

The pandemic doesn’t care if you believe there is a pandemic. Belief is not necessary for things that exist to exist.
