The cruel New Teacher Challenge is a viral prank making its way through TikTok that uses disabled faces like mine as the punchline.
Daphne ZoharFull of admiration for @melissablake. Imagine having a disability that causes you to look different. With bravery & perseverance, you survive childhood teasing to become a successful & talented adult to have clueless parents share their cruelty

A choir of more than one hundred people performed without masks at a robustly attended event in Texas at the First Baptist Church on Sunday that featured a speech by Vice President Mike Pence.
Daphne ZoharHow is this possible? This is the person leading our national COVID-19 task force. This happened TODAY in Texas during a surge where people can’t get tested. 100-person choir sings without masks at Pence event with over 2,000 attendees HT @OtelloVC
Recent studies have provided insights into the pathogenesis of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)1-4. Yet, longitudinal immunological correlates of disease outcome remain unclear. Here, we serially analysed immune responses in 113 COVID-19 patients...
Daphne ZoharFascinating and important work by @VirusesImmunity & colleagues shed light on immune response profile associated with severe COVID-19 outcomes & early immune signatures that correlate w/ disease trajectories
Surgisphere, a tiny startup that claims to be providing large real world data for scientific health studies, is probably fabricating data at scale.
Daphne ZoharWow @ellis2013nz puts together a meticulous case that the treatment & health outcomes data on 96,032 patients from 671 hospitals in six continents from high profile Lancet study on #hydroxychloroquine are “with very high probability completely fabricated”
We take a data-driven approach rooted in epidemiology to forecast infections, deaths, and recovery timelines of the COVID-19 / coronavirus epidemic in the US and around the world
Daphne ZoharAccording to these R0 estimates from one of the most accurate modeling groups, covid19-projections.com distancing interventions have brought estimated R0 below 1 in every state and country listed. If we have a unified approach going forward, we could quash this #TestTraceIsolate pic.twitter.com/kGru040iIf
Daphne ZoharWas my first time participating in a completely virtual investor conference & it was surprisingly productive. No travel, lots of investor meetings. Wouldn’t mind if all confs move virtual. My presentation via cellphone (you barely even hear kids yelling)
About this question, too, decisions with great consequences are being made, as they must be, based on only glimmers of data.
Daphne ZoharThis is a good summary of what is currently known about SARSCoV19 immunity as it relates to potential exit strategies (including the reactivation/reinfection/testing error discussion) by @mlipsitch.
The big cat is the first known case of a non-domesticated animal with COVID-19 symptoms—and is one of seven sick tigers at the New York zoo.
Daphne ZoharThe tigers got tested after exhibiting symptoms eg dry cough. I understand the importance of understanding interspecies transmission but it’s sort of strange that these tigers could get tested “out of abundance of caution” when so many humans cannot

Daphne ZoharTo quote one of my colleagues "As long as companies are allowed to use sh*t for drugs, the revolution needed to bring the microbiome into its appropriate highest quality use for human health and revolutionize therapy will be affected, and this is very sad"
Daphne Zohar“I eventually discovered the identity of my biological father, whom I had code-named the crybaby” Riveting piece by @SchreiberStuart radiates love & protectiveness for his mother & childhood self along w/ complicated love for an abusive father
This cross-sectional study of oncology articles in high–impact factor journals examines the frequency with which waterfall plots are used and measures the accuracy of these plots in representing response rate compared with investigator-assessed and...
