How physician Deborah Birx’s unreasonable demands for hospital data created a “debacle” at CDC
Roxanne Khamsi“Birx was able to get data from every hospital on every case” in Malawi, the official says. “She couldn’t understand why that wasn’t happening in the United States” with COVID-19.
This part of @cpiller's blistering new @ScienceMagazine story says it all.
The core of the Kennedy image was, in many respects, a lie. A presidential biographer, granted access to medical files, portrays a man far sicker than the public knew.
Roxanne KhamsiJFK’s medicines.
"steroids for his Addison’s disease; painkillers... anti-spasmodics for his colitis; antibiotics ...; antihistamines ...; and, on at least one occasion, an anti-psychotic (though only for two days)"
The possibility that Pence has pinkeye is then more significant given the coronavirus outbreak now hitting the White House.
Roxanne KhamsiDid you know that eye doctors in China were the first to spot Covid-19 and among the first healthcare workers to die from it?
"Nearly a quarter of pediatric COVID patients had pinkeye from Jan. 26 through March 18" according to one study. 👀🩸👀👀
Americans have long pushed back against safety measures with clear benefits
Roxanne KhamsiWhen I was 5 years old I went through the side window of a car in an auto accident. I hadn't been wearing my seat belt but I survived. Others aren't as lucky. My trauma might be why @acsifferlin's brilliant article resonates so much with me
Some of the leading candidates might work better for the richest people in the world, simply on account of how they're made.
Roxanne KhamsiNEW article from me: People in non-Western countries might fare worse with Covid-19 vaccines because of how they are made
Roxanne KhamsiIn a study of around 1,000 people:
- 34% of adults in the US have antibodies against Ad5
- 89% in Nigeria
- 96% in Côte d'Ivoire
Read my article about why this might make #Covid19 vaccines work less well among people in the Global South
“The moment I learned it was a coronavirus, something shifted in my head.”
Roxanne KhamsiThis conversation really opened my eyes to the collective nature of covering this pandemic. The matter of #airborne transmission isn't just a science story, it's an accountability story
With fires raging up and down the West Coast, and the pandemic restricting travel, the instinct to bolt has nowhere to go.
Roxanne KhamsiDid you know that fires now burn so hot that they sterilize the topsoil? I didn’t until I read @Emma_Marris’s new article. As she writes: "A renewing force has become an obliterating force."
As the U.S. heads towards the winter, the country is going round in circles, making the same conceptual errors that have plagued it since spring.
Roxanne Khamsi"Stay-at-home orders dominated March. Masks were fiercely debated in April. Contact tracing took its turn in May. Ventilation is having its moment now. 'It’s like we only have attention for only one thing at a time,' says @nataliexdean" @edyong209 writes
"It's when I've been stopped by police officers that I didn't even know... I was starting to sweat and just holding the steering wheel really hard," Leland Melvin said
Roxanne Khamsi"Leland Melvin has logged more than 565 hours in space [...] and traveled around Earth at 17,500 miles per hour — but none of that compares to the fear and anxiety he feels while being pulled over by a police officer."
A new study shows the Biogen conference held at Boston’s Marriott Long Wharf hotel in February played an even far greater role in spreading the coronavirus than previously thought.
Roxanne KhamsiThere were more than 80 versions of the #Covid19 virus that entered Massachusetts between January and early May — but the Biogen conference outbreak seeded 20,000 cases, not just 99 according to new estimates. via @adamfeuerstein
Some of the cringiest articles in Scientific American ’s history reveal bigger questions about scientific authority
Roxanne KhamsiIt is a rare thing for a publication to hold a mirror up to itself and examine its flawed history. This dive into the problematic moments of @sciam's past by @JenLSchwartz and Dan Schlenoff was quite the reckoning. I recommend it for its brutal honesty
