A lesson I didn’t expect to learn in my lifetime but here we are: A global pandemic really shows you people’s true colors.
There are two ways to get outside air to the room: 1- Supply outside air directly into the room. That is the preferred method. See picture below. You will see a diffuser above the ceiling, next to the bathroom. If that is the case, your room is isolated from other rooms.pic.twitter.com/PseSNN2Dvs
Do you know how much fun someone could have with some of the tweets posted by some of the doctors on here ... ... on cross-examination? I do. Lots.
Big Thread coming on ‘returning to on-site teaching’. Intended mainly for universities (because I work in one), but may also be useful for schools. Mute thread if not interested. I’ll base it around real questions I’ve been asked. 1/
@CPita3 for the website where they store Alberta's outbreak data.
The Foothills Medical Center is Dr. Conly's
Today is September 24, 2021. There is a CoVid outbreak there.
Why is there an outbreak there?
“Alberta, we have a problem.” Data shows hospitals are infecting & killing people at an alarming rate. And it looks like someone is trying to cover it up. Unless 200 cases & 12 deaths in six weeks isn’t alarming. Or erasing data isn’t a coverup. PS- Now is it airborne?https://twitter.com/cpita3/status/1441928719266992129 …
"So: Do we have a problem?" I charted the AHS Acute Care Outbreak data to find out. (Which was not easy, given the obfuscation of the data, and lack of history...) I'm going to go with: YES! You have a problem! >200 patient/HCW infections and 12 deaths, since Aug. 13th https://twitter.com/AntibioticDoc/status/1441079572716343296 …pic.twitter.com/UnMV6nKgXK
This virus is being spread around the world by infectious individuals exhaling aerosols that are ultimately inhaled by others in indoor air. Please let others know…good masks, distance, ventilation, and filtration. We can end this by acknowledging SARS-CoV2 is airborne.
It has been shown that a N95 is far superior to droplet precautions [meaning a medical mask + eye protection] at stopping COVID and “difficulty in containment without N95” in COVID wards is a fact.

OMG, it is just out of control. The SARS-CoV-2 virus is airborne. Vancouver addressed this for SARS-1 and halted its spread. This shows where one strong smart non-conflicted ER doc can make a huge difference.
@DrFiliatrault was that person. Where is that person now?https://twitter.com/DFisman/status/1441741434994888707 …
Gotta say, making a distinction between 10,000 person indoor occupancy and 15,000 person indoor occupancy in Ontario based on whether patrons are sitting or standing implies no understanding whatsoever of what aerosol is or how it works. If you don't laugh you cry.
Imagine making this argument for prominent anti-vaxxers? "It's all too toxic, we need to find common ground". Denying airborne transmission, and undermining the efficacy of HEPA filtration and Respiratory Protective Equipment is DANGEROUS. Full Stop.
How anyone still listens to Dr Alasdair Munro is beyond me. Earlier this year, he told us that children played only a "cursory role" in community transmission of SARS-CoV-2. Now, he says that the mixing of children leads to "some serious illness in elderly people". Unbelievable.pic.twitter.com/ObLVagTALl
