    1. Kai Kupferschmidt. (2021, December 10). “the severity profile of Omicron cases must be interpreted along with an understanding of its capacity to re-infect (and infect the vaccinated)“ This is what I have been trying to explain the last few days. As usual @nataliexdean does it better (and in color)! [Tweet]. @kakape. https://twitter.com/kakape/status/1469270407995867139

    1. Yaniv Erlich. (2021, December 8). Updated table of Omicron neuts studies with @Pfizer results (which did the worst job in terms of reporting raw data). Strong discrepancy between studies with live vs pseudo. Https://t.co/InQuWMAm4l [Tweet]. @erlichya. https://twitter.com/erlichya/status/1468580675007795204

    1. ReconfigBehSci. (2021, November 26). vaccine equity has been a disaster, but I do wonder whether the exclusive focus on donations does the US/EU comparison justice. The EU allowed the export of huge numbers of EU produced doses at a time when the US did not (and EU itself was struggling to meet demand). [Tweet]. @SciBeh. https://twitter.com/SciBeh/status/1464255575416520749

    1. ReconfigBehSci. (2021, November 26). maybe this is a good moment to remind people that makers of mRNA vaccines have been extensively prepping for the possibility of new variants. Biontech/Pfizer have given a timeline of 100 days to the delivery of a retooled version of their vaccine [Tweet]. @SciBeh. https://twitter.com/SciBeh/status/1464225264523747359

    1. John Burn-Murdoch. (2021, November 25). Five quick tweets on the new variant B.1.1.529 Caveat first: Data here is very preliminary, so everything could change. Nonetheless, better safe than sorry. 1) Based on the data we have, this variant is out-competing others far faster than Beta and even Delta did 🚩🚩 https://t.co/R2Ac4e4N6s [Tweet]. @jburnmurdoch. https://twitter.com/jburnmurdoch/status/1463956686075580421

    1. ReconfigBehSci. (2021, December 9). a rather worrying development- a (local) newspaper “fact checking” the new German health minister simply by interviewing a virologist who happens to have a different view. There’s simply no established “fact” as to the severity of omicron in children at this point in time [Tweet]. @SciBeh. https://twitter.com/SciBeh/status/1469037817481334786

    1. whole-genome sequencing (WGS) provides the highest possible subtyping resolution improving the surveillance, outbreak investigation, source attribution, and microbial population studies

      Purpose of WGS in population epidemiology

      1. Surveillance
      2. Outbreak Investigation
      3. Source attribution
      4. Microbial population

    1. Nathan Grubaugh [@NathanGrubaugh]. (2021, September 24). Hi @Newsweek 👋. I understand that #variant news has been slow recently with the near-complete dominance of Delta, but do you really need to go and make things up? Lineage R.1 is not a concern. Let me briefly explain why. (1/4) https://t.co/OD46PsXZEu [Tweet]. Twitter. https://twitter.com/NathanGrubaugh/status/1441522760832933888
