“I’d say we are in a moment right now — a crossroads, a fork in the road where we can either try and take a road to end the pandemic or take a path that will prolong it.” - Harvard Chan School professor @PardisSabeti (via @wapo).
CDC study shows three-fourths of people infected in Massachusetts coronavirus outbreak were vaccinated but few required hospitalization
The report offers key evidence bolstering the hypothesis that vaccinated people can spread the more transmissible variant.
A dataset that (I think) is currently missing:
COVID outcomes – cases, hospitalizations, and deaths – broken down by whether the person was vaccinated or not.
It would be very useful if someone would build and maintain a cross-country dataset of that.
– Is anyone doing this?
.@NYTimes @charlie_smart_ Takes a look at where people are most vulnerable to the Delta variant @laurenmeyers says where there are surges in hospitalizations and cases even vaccinated people need to be doing their part to slow transmission @TexasScience
Where People Are Most Vulnerable to the Delta Variant
Estimates show much of the country is still susceptible to the kind of rapid spread that can put stress on hospitals and lead to worse outcomes for pa...

We developed a simulator to support creation of isolation guideline for COVID-19 patients considering both safety and burden:
Thank you, @MIDAS_Network for supporting this project!
Revisiting the guidelines for ending isolation for COVID-19 patients
Compared with the approach isolating COVID-19 patients for a fixed period, the approach using repeated PCR testing mitigates unnecessarily lengthy iso...
With our (virtual) annual meeting approaching, Mentors don't forget to send your nominations for student papers and posters to @anisabelbento (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you to those you already have!
We know vaccines reduce your risk of infection, but they aren't *perfect.* Then what fraction of transmission in the population is from the vaccinated? How might this change with new variants?
In the thread below, I share a mental model with worked examples. 1/11
great work from the #covid19scenariomodelinghub.. @MIDAS_Network
The Delta Variant Will Drive A Steep Rise In U.S. COVID Deaths, A New Model Shows
New estimates show the U.S. is on track to see a big rise in cases and more than triple the number of deaths by October.
In our new paper, we predicted that under the presence of new variants, new waves of #COVID19 in the US would occur if lifting all restrictions without adequate #CovidVaccine protection:
Quantifying the Impact of Lifting Community Nonpharmaceutical Interventions for COVID-19 During Vaccination Rollout in the United States
Abstract. Using a mathematical model, we estimated the potential impact on mortality and total infections of completely lifting community nonpharmaceu...

Important data, and consistent with US serosurveillance, UK REACT study, and other epidemiological studies that look beyond symptom-based ascertainment. Children usually experience mild illness but are able to become infected and transmit SARS-CoV-2. h/t @sanjravi89 https://twitter.com/Loretta_Torrago/status/1413571122734505986
This CDC presentation of yet-to-be-published data shows kids:
* transmit as efficiently as adults
* are infected at rates similar to adults.
It's not getting the attention it deserves perhaps because it's only available as video. I've done my best to faithfully transcribe it.🧵
