I still don't accept this argument that it is better for children to get covid early and often.

It is better if children never get covid at all.

Help? Looking for the man who saved my brother's life last Friday afternoon while mountain #biking in Peters Canyon in Tustin, CA. All we know is his name is Jonathan and he called 911 and my sister in law. My brother had been saying he'd really like to find him and thank him.

Please remember to do the simple things to protect yourself against covid this autumn:
- Get boosted if you're offered it
- Wear a mask when coming into contact with others (especially for extended periods of time).
- Meet outdoors where possible.
- Ventilate
- Test (if you can)

Lathisms honoree, Dr. Leos beautiful quote gave me all the feels!

“To me, #HispanicHeritageMonth is a celebration of all of us who have achieved more than what we dreamed was possible, and to dream of a future with less barriers for those who follow.”https://t.co/PgluNZNY3j pic.twitter.com/q8Hp0RUscD

School is advertising the flu vaccination for kids

Great news. Of course I'll sign my kids up

Isn't it bonkers though that they can get a flu vaccine, but almost no-one under 50 can get a booster for covid, despite waning immunity and heading into winter

Something isn't right

"PR giants that received hefty government contracts to run Covid-19 public health campaigns are now bidding to lead an inquiry into the public’s experience of the pandemic response, the Guardian has learned."

I honestly could not give a fig about seeing my doctor's face when they treat me.
I would much rather they didn't breath covid on to me and indeed helped to keep themselves protected from infection by wearing a mask.
I'll wear one too as part of the deal.

Cédric Villani, "Birth of a Theorem"
The author's autobiographical description of arriving at a big theorem that contributed to his winning the Fields medal. Lots of equations, quoted emails, the sort of thing I find it hard to believe got published as popular maths. pic.twitter.com/ey9HyImJ8d
