The @NHSCOVID19app is now available to the public in England and Wales 📲 Download today from: ➡️ Apple App Store: https://t.co/EnHDdr5mtg… ➡️ Google Play: https://t.co/sivYOhAkH3… https://t.co/iHiNMYIknB
The NHS app is out! It can help protect us. It now needs us all to make it work. See the ad & download. However things works out, I am incredibly proud of my team at @bdi_oxford @OxfordMedSci, our collaborators, & our contributions to the epidemiology and science team at the app https://t.co/W8kyC5vc1S
Have we actually reached the point where this needs to be said?! 😧 https://t.co/3VR2omwtlr
This is simply wrong. https://t.co/0C71QxpVXg. Herd immunity is not a strategy or a solution. It is surrender to a preventable virus.
Great to see early results with this new approach, setting a sound basis for more progress before the winter season kicks in. https://t.co/0X2gjmzNVX
I’ve been doing a a bit of fitness, but this is next level running 🏃🏻♂️. ..https://t.co/66FloDtiq1
Big story in the Telegraph, which says Public Health England could be scrapped *this week* and replaced by a pandemic response agency incorporating Test and Trace Years of institutional change are taking place in weeks https://t.co/alcIGHxqc5
Looking for R to drop to 0.6 is misunderstanding what R(eff) means. It’s a parameter that describes a complex system - suggesting it will go down from the current est 0.96 implies far greater restrictions or behaviour changes than current stage 4 lockdown. https://t.co/FLqrWNdKPx
I can also confirm that my own investigations using a VERY POWERFUL MAGNIFYING GLASS failed to detect a single oxygen particle trapped in either the weft or the warp of the cotton fabric used in my face covering. #Science
I’ve just run 3 miles in a mask. Oxygen levels 99% throughout. Mask was unnecessary as I was outside and distant, but I wanted to see if I dropped dead as per some predictions. I didn’t.
Exceptional work from a world leading scientist adds to mounting evidence that oxygen molecules are NOT filtered from the air by cotton fabric😱 https://t.co/wawHEqJQCM
@RLB_1 @snellyradio @bbcmerseyside The time a test takes important but it is not just the time test takes, it is all logistics behind access to tests, how we can all easily get a test,data,how quickly result is available & reported back, how results lead to any needed behaviour change, to effective actions & more
Interesting discussion with @ChrisCEOHopson on the @BBCr4today programme. Yes U.K. testing should scale-up for the winter, but international perspective important. Daily U.K. testing capacity is 150000, Zambia is 500-1000 with 25% positive - can’t compete with the West for kits https://t.co/sNDqA4vpgo
