  1. Where the excess mortality is, patients with dementia incoming. Covid19 as a morbidity accelerator. These are huge learnings and points of rethink for me stemming from this show.

    Thanks Ginger… thanks TWiV.

    As I’m sure many will point out, although Israel has been very aggressive vaccinating, their numbers aren’t as high as published because they ignore the occupied territories. Israel has not only not vaccinated the Palestinians, they have actively blocked the territories from getting vaccines from Gaza.

    Having been the local person with POA for dad @ 88, July 2017, and mom @ 95, April 2020, (natural causes, not covid), I appreciate Dr Campbell and those that do her kind of work. Having a clear idea of options and resources available when I had to make hard choices, provided some needed peace of mind that my parents were provided with what comfort was possible in their last days. Thank you, and keep up the good work.

    Dr Racaniello, Ep 45 Osterholm Update is now advocating 1 vaccine dose ASAP, what ever kind available to everyone, even cutting the Moderna to 1/2 as in the trial dosing error and no vaccine for previously confirmed covid persons. He is waving the variants like a red flag and screaming “DANGER, WILL ROBINSON,DANGER”. I think I can predict your response. Though I am not generally in agreement with your “non political”, comments on the current or previous administrations, I think i will be on this one.
    FYI, I am 66 and still waiting my turn. BS in chemistry, physics, minor in math. I did take an upper level Biochemistry class and Intro to Cell Biology, so I can generally follow your discussions. I appreciate and enjoy the information you and your cohort are working to convey, thank you.
