COVID-19 is not a pandemic. Here’s why. https://t.co/ZLOGZCyPT8

Covid-19 is a pandemic of inequality that needs adressing https://t.co/2lQcxbIPEV

Can we predict who will experience severe #COVID19? @DrClaireSteves discusses with @guardianscience's Nicola Davis. Listen now: https://t.co/ar2jUAytC4

Quoted @keyeri

@timspector @YouTube @FatEmperor Is it definitely 1 in 50 now? I thought it was higher.

its around 1 in 50 of symptomatic infections after three months- but does depnd on the exact definitions used- however you look at it- it is a large number of people affected that will increase w more cases -so not just about excess deaths. #longcovid @FatEmperor https://t.co/z2CS4VrgUW

What's the difference between a cold and COVID-19 symptoms? Professor @timspector helps distinguish between the two. https://t.co/OqJjGrGkVI

Quoted @J4NE_HENRY

@missdoelteach There is very little mention of deterioration in eye sight. My vision has also been significantly affected. It's worth documenting symptoms on the Kings College Zoe app. It's one of few places that this info is being collected @timspector @long_covid

We will look into adding this symptom in our next update if we get sufficient reports - otherwise keep adding it under "other" @Join_ZOE https://t.co/TSHHfUqH1O

We will have a look at this https://t.co/XUZv3IhbmV

Very concerned to hear this. Hard to understand the delay given the urgency for those suffering totally debilitating symptoms of long covid.  https://t.co/fgYpwZN6rn

If our data of increasing daily cases and impending doom is stressful - here is an alternate view just looking at deaths - saying we have little to worry about. Even if correct he doesn’t worry about the 1 in 50 with #Longcovid https://t.co/5fcmLrDQzs via @YouTube @FatEmperor

Common problem - but that process you describe often takes months not weeks! 6 months to publication now seems super rapid post-covid. Depressing times for paper writers- and not suprising many like us use preprints more. https://t.co/VTVlaT5290

'It’s all about smell! Close to 100% accuracy - odd that loss of smell is the best predictor of Covid affecting over half of people and infectious people then produce a distinct smell which humans can’t detect - probably our microbes 🦠! https://t.co/S1zHfsL7tY

The U.K. map gets redder as daily cases reach 14000 and R=1.4 . Our data are over double govt figures based solely on testing. Worrying to see London cases accelerating for the first time since April and student mobility not going to help. Keep logging! https://t.co/gljg40zHzD

The BMJ have published this Rapid Response to a Food for Thought 2020 essay by @timspector & @GardnerPhD Authored by @katecooper, @doctorblooz & Prof Jim Parle, it's here: https://t.co/vAUlAxDvjG

Good to see our article produced debate and radical plans to reduce obesity and the influence of ultra processed food on our lives via VAT https://t.co/aLLC2I1aWl

Quoted @LawtonTri

@timspector Do you put the data up anywhere (as opposed to just the graphs)? Would be very useful for those of us trying to model things, particularly locally.

All data is available via HDRUK each day https://t.co/C2Fo6CgpST

Quoted @dangerous_derek

@timspector hi the #covidapp is great. problem is rules changing weekly. Can we have a #rules app? You register pcode, age, health problems and it tells you what rules you should follow

A good idea - but we may not be able to keep up fast enough! https://t.co/Iq2mbk9f3y
