I was thinking about life extension technology and how I have become more pessimistic about it since 2007/8 when I first heard about it. I still check @LauraDeming 's twitter to keep tabs on it though. Here's my take on the problem [thread] https://t.co/CV638Io5tq

1. No second wave
2. Additional smaller waves
3. Even spread

British epidemiologists have only one scenario:

☠️ Exponential growth! ☠️

They learned nothing from mistakes of 1st wave... https://t.co/NmUiPbMn6A

Discouraging to see UK still fixated with flawed exponential growth models. https://t.co/9Ou54qNJfZ

🇸🇪 currently with 19 ICU beds occupied due to #covid19 in the entire country. Most regions are at similar levels as previous week. We see slight increase in two regions with a total of three patients each, namely Gävleborg and Örebro. NO ICU patients in 12 out of 21 regions! https://t.co/pMnmthWejI

Over the weekend I saw a widely-shared FB post-- 93k Shares and counting!-- drawing a very close connection, almost an equation, between the Jewish conception of justice or righteousness and RBG's moral-political-constitutional vision. At the same time, an Amy Coney Barrett 1/

@f98froh @gronvita @ianbirrell @AlistairHaimes @BBCr4today @JoacimRocklov In our April 25th interview he told me: “I think we’re going to see their daily deaths increase day by day. It is clearly a decision for the Swedish government whether they wish to tolerate that.” Didn’t happen.

In my @SunTimesIreland column this week I discuss a new poll showing that one in five Mass-goers might not return post-Covid. I also discuss the ban on public worship in Dublin (alone in Europe in doing so). https://t.co/SlBCJqnKr7

In the United States, there is a now second front against lockdowns, from the left. Together with fellow Harvard infectious disease epidemiologist @wkyih, I was interviewed by @NicoleAschoff in @jacobinmag, a progressive left magazine. Please RT. https://t.co/VnBEW7y8CU

This should be understood as Parliament doing its job, not a "backlash". "Sir Graham Brady ... is planning to use this opportunity to amend this legislation to require ministers to put all new measures to a vote of MPs first." https://t.co/YTlq25McCK
