Charlie Bates

I just made a donation to this fund in honor / memory of Little I (Charlie Bates), son of @BatesPhysio. His death is incredibly tragic. Donating to this fund, if you can afford it, is one good thing we can do in his honor. https://twitter.com/BatesPhysio/status/1490771240772116487

More problems with Monica Gandhi

For those who have not seen it this is worth a look. Monica Gandhi has been one of the worst purveyors, over and over and over, of inaccurate predictions and information about how #COVID is over and mild and no big deal. https://twitter.com/MehdiHasanShow/status/1489404410669277190

And I note - Dr. Gandhi has also been claiming, over and over and over, with no evidence, that getting many diseases is good for you because it helps you microbiome eg https://twitter.com/phylogenomics/status/1441839751204507656?s=20&t=gF6r1K9W3pwtvzwtTBZl6w
