What does a mask do? Blocks respiratory droplets coming from your mouth and throat.

Two simple demos:

First, I sneezed, sang, talked & coughed toward an agar culture plate with or without a mask. Bacteria colonies show where droplets landed. A mask blocks virtually all of them. 2

Medical professionals from other countries are the backbone of US healthcare. Look at any hospital, research program, university. Trump endangers the health of all in the US through ignorance and xenophobia.  #WeAreInThisTogether  #ImmigrantsAreAmerica https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/503914-trump-signs-executive-order-suspending-certain-wo...

Germany doesn’t have Nazi monuments to “remind” citizens of their history. Instead, they have memorials for the 6 million Jews and others who were murdered. The U.S. doesn’t need statues of confederate generals to “remind” us. We need monuments for Nat Turner & Harriet Tubman.

White supremacy, plain & simple!

New rule: If a politician doesn't criticize the $115,000,000,000 US police budget or the $738,000,000,000 US military budget, they don't get to say a thing about the affordability of Medicare for All.

"Medical science has long been used for the consolidation of power rather than for solidarity with the oppressed." Powerful piece by  @Ann C-R et al. in  @Scientific American: https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/voices/george-floyds-autopsy-and-the-structural-gaslighting-of-...

 @Steak Cut 🥓 Hey, thanks for sharing this thread from  @Nicholas A. Christakis. Read the whole version here: https://threader.app/thread/1269033523354222592 #26

History will remember that on this day—the day of George Floyd's funeral—Senator @RandPaul rejected our anti-lynching legislation and attempted to water it down. It's absolutely disgraceful.

NYT in turmoil NEJM and Lancet exposed for dubious editorial review and addiction to impact factor. Racism protests Viral Pandemic Economic calamity —> Could AF ablation, pacemakers, stents, mitraclips, Impellas and even Watchman be any more marginal today?

I have, without hyperbole, been waiting my entire career for this moment,  #medtwitter Insurance company: "we are going to need a reference to justify that order" Me: "sure, which one of my papers would you like?"

When this happens in other countries people start speculating about a coup. This is not ok.

5PM WHITE HOUSE — These are the unidentified DOJ officers holding the perimeter at 15th and H Streets.
They won’t tell the public to whom they report exactly...
It’s generating HUGE frustration here #GeorgeFloyd @WUSA9

Trump is holding a knee on the neck of American Democracy, and the GOP is the three cops just watching it happen while protecting him.

I am calling on all military leaders to refuse deployment against US citizens. The Posse Comitatus Act limits federal troops' deployment on U.S. soil and forbids using them to enforce domestic laws. It is forbidden to follow an illegal order.

It has worked for attending, fellow or PA and patient for some of us at Tufts, but not for all, & not consistently. Seems buggy. Said to be fixed in Doximity v 14.8.

 @Roger Rodby Yes- me, fellow and patient. It allows for three way calls. Doesn’t allow one to be on phone though. All have to be either on phone or video calls

Seeing all the videos of police cars ramming unarmed civilians, shooting reporters with rubber bullets at close range, trampling protesters with their horses—you know, it’s almost like the people who were telling us about police brutality for decades were on to something...

the question of the day is not "should physicians make political statements publicly," the question of the day is why do physicians think its political to be outraged when Black men are killed by police

Fascism is enabled by suppression of a free press. If you think that ⁦ @Donald J. Trump⁩ is not complicit in this erosion of freedom, you have not been paying attention.  #FreePress  #ReportersMakeAmericaGreat https://apple.news/A5Xu-XuMbQ9aPQb5IVkOhjw
