One of the many things in crisis communication 101 we learn is WORDS MATTER. Terminology matters. Airborne vs aerosol Breakthrough vs minimally effective Primary vs secondary Each mean something at face value. And each have the ability to cause massive confusion

So important! https://t.co/BSiCNQVDYk

New on Leapsmag! The future of medicine is surveillance technology — implanted devices that can detect a sickness at its onset, in real time. Would you use one? https://t.co/vE6osd9O7A

Hey Twitter! Who's your go-to expert for info on #aerosols and #COVID19? Leaps is hosting a twitter chat this Thursday and we need experts who can join us! Please RT if you can!

Neighbor gets on elevator with me & our kids. Everyone wearing masks. She tells me she hates the mask order. Her: “You know how they got through the 1918 flu? Herd immunity.” Me: “50 million people died first. 675,000 in the USA alone.” *rest of the ride is silent*

Herd immunity is great — but without vaccines, it means a lot of people are going to die. Vaccinations are a shortcut: All the benefits of immunity, none of the preventable deaths. #VaccinesWork https://t.co/oIkZiBWskx

Call center, restaurant, bus: An analysis of three COVID-19 outbreaks and the steps we can take to avoid other ones. https://t.co/jq1X0Tvsoy

SCIENCE FACT: A flea can accelerate faster than the Space Shuttle.

Over the last 6 months, we've learned a lot about how SARS-CoV-2 spreads🦠 What does the evidence so far tell us about SARS-CoV-2 transmission dynamics, high-risk activities and environments? Thread 🧵 (1/n) https://t.co/zBRmgztnKf

Excellent info here! In the words of Marie Curie, "Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less." https://t.co/vGGQQNuYAB

Another point for the ‘assymptomatic infection equals preexisting immunity’ crowd Poliovirus causes no or almost no symptoms in two thirds of people infected - they had no pre-existing immunity Funnily enough, polio paralysis occurs in ‘only’ 0.5%. Should we have bothered?

Huge—CDC now finally says coronavirus can commonly spread "through respiratory droplets or small particles, such as in aerosols," when a person breathes. "Airborne viruses, including #COVID19, are among the most contagious” ➡️Airborne aerosols. #MaskUp 🧵 https://t.co/ik2LrH4Iqk

When you find a list of almost every voice you trust in this pandemic you share it. Please follow these experts, especially as we move in a season that may play politics with science. https://t.co/X75vpi2ldT

Quoted @EpiEllie

Flu vaccination experts, I have a question for you: There seems to be a trade-off between individual & community flu protection: waiting till Nov might be better for me, but getting vax in Sept might be better for the community. When should people be getting flu vax this year?

Great discussion here on when exactly we should get our flu shots this year. (Spoiler: ASAP) https://t.co/CKFOYqzGI1

Some POSITIVE coronavirus news, for a change! The Navajo Nation is reporting ZERO new deaths from COVID-19, for the third time in six days. This streak marks the first time there have been no COVID-19 deaths since March. https://t.co/oqlDhkVLXk

SCIENCE FACT: Stomach acid is strong enough to dissolve stainless steel.

New on leapsmag! 60 years ago, another deadly virus dominated the planet. Here's how vaccines + global cooperation helped eradicate it. https://t.co/utrFhmzmKs

"While a virus traveling through the air sounds terrifying, the good news is there is a safe, cheap, and effective way to stop the spread: wearing a mask." Great work on this, @SmithDanaG! https://t.co/Shk0TAeBj5

1/ If this holds up under peer-review, it would be yet another argument for WIDESPREAD, MASS testing, so we know who to treat with monoclonal antibodies BEFORE they require hospitalization: https://t.co/AyXNp1KEFL

“Bizimana is one of 12 villagers who are paid about $3 a night to serve as bait for mosquitoes, which they trap and transfer to technicians at a nearby entomology lab.” Amazing story! https://t.co/MAxErUSC3C.
