Writing LaTeX is a better experience when you stop trying to treat it like a piece of software and accept that it’s a living organism with complex emotions and a rich internal life. It will compile when it feels like it, it’s really not about you.

The long awaited new @wellcometrust science strategy is here https://t.co/fW4k0Md6IP - Focus on 3 programmes: infectious diseases, mental health and global heating (new!) - Funding more outside the UK - Restructuring fellowships & stopping salary support for established PIs

Quoted @CriticalCareAUH

4/•Our patients are not people expected to die soon. The average age of ICU admissions with COVID in the UK is 59 and most are well beforehand. •All of our patients caught coronavirus out of hospital. •Treatments and care have improved.

Please note this information. It’s important. https://t.co/xYZ2H282Sn

Pleased to sign and support the #JohnSnowMemorandum. Controlling the virus is in our collective power, saving lives and the economy. https://t.co/R3U0mYfqdD

Here's a summary of our work tracking epidemic changes after the Test and Trace launch, now published in @LancetDigitalH Blog: https://t.co/x3dBMtK4Jt Paper: https://t.co/Kx5juelXgY Brief thread:

19% of health care workers (i.e. group at higher risk) in Stockholm estimated have SARS-CoV-2 antibodies by May (https://t.co/L7KPtwjmMz). For context, 45% of frontline HCWs in London hospital positive by May (https://t.co/r6MLgxTY65) & 3% in Denmark (https://t.co/ZTJBNhztPl)

We've added some great new events for November: 19th - Prof Susan Jebb and Prof Sir Charles Godfray discuss #COVID19 and diet, weight and health 30th - @ChristoPhraser and @EvolveDotZoo on 21st-century tech for a 21st-century #Pandemic https://t.co/TLZlJv6FL9

Our paper on Test and Trace and the Isle of Wight is now out in @LancetDigitalH. 

TLDR: something went especially well on IoW. Need to learn from it, need more data. Tentative success story for Test & Trace including app and with great community buy-in.

Comment here https://t.co/5vVXYVA2al "different approaches to test, trace, and isolate could underlie the marked differences in the impact of COVID-19 across different parts of the world"

Our brief report screening pre-pandemic sera for SARS-CoV-2 neutralization activity is now live! A great collaboration between @PaulBieniasz, @theodora_nyc , and colleagues at the NHS resulted in a side-quest that happened to become my first first-author paper! https://t.co/BPzYC8nsDR

Our latest preprint, short and sweet, suggests no cross neutralization of SARS-CoV-2 by antibodies elicited during seasonal coronavirus infection. https://t.co/FkZCBoDuyu
