    1. The underlying theme tyingthese myths together is that poverty is often perceived to be an issue of“them” rather than an issue of “us”—that those who experience povertyare viewed as strangers to mainstream America, falling outside accept-able behavior, and as such, are to be scorned and stigmatized.

      One of the underlying commonalities about the various myths of poverty is that we tend to "other" those that it effects. The "them" we stigmatize with the ills of poverty really look more like "us", and in fact, they are.

      Rather than victim shame and blame those in poverty, we ought to spend more of our time fixing the underlying disease instead of spending the time, effort, energy, and money on attempting to remedy the symptoms (eg. excessive policing, et al.) Not only is it more beneficial, but cheaper in the long run.

    1. Prof Francois Balloux [@BallouxFrancois]. (2021, December 9).

    1. Carl T. Bergstrom. (2021, August 18). 1. There has been lots of talk about recent data from Israel that seem to suggest a decline in vaccine efficacy against severe disease due to Delta, waning protection, or both. This may have even been a motivation for Biden’s announcement that the US would be adopting boosters. [Tweet]. @CT_Bergstrom. https://twitter.com/CT_Bergstrom/status/1427767356600688646

    1. Dr Greg Kelly. (2021, July 2).

    1. Dr. Deepti Gurdasani. (2022, March 1). New study out yesterday suggesting that vaccine efficacy with current dose for 5-11 yr olds likely wanes quickly. Especially against infection, but also against hospitalisation, although protection against severe disease is higher. Seems to be closely linked to vaccine dose🧵 https://t.co/NojLODF1ED [Tweet]. @dgurdasani1. https://twitter.com/dgurdasani1/status/1498580243665367040

    1. Deepti Gurdasani. (2022, January 10). Lots of people dismissing links between COVID-19 and all-cause diabetes. An association that’s been shown in multiple studies- whether this increase is due to more diabetes or SARS2 precipitating diabetic keto-acidosis allowing these to be diagnosed is not known.

(2022, January 20). @timcolbourn @OmicronData As I said before, it’s not the function of this account to argue/advocate covid policies, but I will comment on the shape of the argument. The use of the frame “just delay” here seems hugely prejudicial.

    1. Prof. Akiko Iwasaki. (2021, September 23). Thankfully, we have not seen any evidence of antibody-dependent enhancement of infection or disease by any COVID vaccines to date.
