Infection levels are continuing to rise.

Now is a good time to wear a mask crowded indoor public spaces, not just to protect yourselves, but to protect others whom you might unwittingly infect.

Getting infected twice is worse than getting infected once.

Getting infected once is worse than not getting infected at all.

It sounds simple, but try not to get infected.

Hearing lots of "Well deaths are still low" takes about this latest wave.

Firstly, deaths are a lagged indicator so we wouldn't expect them to rise at exactly the same time as cases.

Secondly, death is by no means the only poor outcome associated with covid.

This is our third wave in six months.

What is going to stop this happening over and over again?

Non-Hawaiians should NOT just be moving to or “vacationing” in Hawai’i just because of what’s going on rn (or for most other reasons). Not only because the the US military is destroying our fresh water wells but also because many people there lack access to required medical care,

Final processing on #Messier51, the Whirlpool Galaxy. 51a is interacting with the nearby dwarf 51b, creating the tidal bridge of dust and gas. I wavelet sharpened to bring out the fine dusty details. https://t.co/jWlGCPtkuN#astrohour #Astrophotography #asiweek pic.twitter.com/cx3bHghKSE

I am looking for a science educator with experience making chemistry experiments for K-12 students (Preferably BIPOC). We need to improve a portion of @SpaceBoxASAN before we get this product back on the market. We will compensate you for your time. #scicomm #STEM #chemistry

We should be told whether we are expecting to be offered covid booster jabs this autumn as soon as possible.

The reasoning and modelling behind the decision should also be made available to everyone can scrutinise it.

That would be good scientific practice.

A curve in space is a geodesic not only by how it looks but also by how it's parameterized. It needs to be parameterized properly so it satisfies the geodesic equation. Here is an example. #math #geometry pic.twitter.com/84JxcoeeuS

By removing measures (e.g testing, mask-wearing, self-isolation etc) to reduce covid and failing to implement others (ventillation etc) we are failing people - often the most vulnerable people - in our society.
