About 15% of my patients lost weight during the pandemic. That’s the most I’ve seen in my career. One patient lost 34 lbs in 4 months.

Do masks really cause dangerous C02 buildup? Unlikely. Why? Because virus is small, but C02 is ~200x smaller. It matters b/c some mask deniers worry they'll asphyxiate. I made a pic to help address concerns. Virus is 0.12μm; C02 ~0.00065μm. CO2 easily crosses mask. COVID doesn't.

How can we improve local #COVID19 forecasting? A #BigData approach might combine epi data w/ sewage data (#SARSCoV2 RNA levels in runoff) w/ #SoMe analytics (eg. geo-targeted symptom reports) w/ volunteer self-reports. All happening already, but combo may supercharge predictions.

Important new #COVID19 study: We know that digestive symptoms, like diarrhea & nausea, are common w/ #COVID19. But do gut symptoms predict bad outcomes? This @MayoClinic study finds no evidence of increased mortality when Covid presents with gastro issues: https://www.mayoclinicproceedings.org/action/showPdf?pii=S0025-6196%2820%2930600-5

This is a time of incredible adversity.

Despite that you see medical trainees jumping right in, hungry for knowledge, passionate to help, humble, persistent*. Seeing that gives me hope we will be okay.

*And yes you can tell all that from a photo with masks.
