(Unexpected Outcome = New Coronavirus Pandemic)
6. Back after the Outage, wasn't me!
Dr. Kendra Phelps
7. Even the so-called "professional" bat researchers working for EcoHealth often fail to use proper PPE (masks, suits), despite being well aware of the risks of infection from bats since 2013, Here is Kendra Philips and her local colleagues
8. Some "wows" have animated me to add more tweets ;)
Bat Researchers have known since 2013 about bat to human direct transmission of viruses
Here is the full advice from "SEABCRU" prepared by Kevin Olival in Pnomh Penh 2013, updated 2015
9. The Full guidance for PPE is listed carefully under three sets, A, B and C.
10. Bat Research is a dangerous hobby!
11. Dead Bat Researchers

13. On May 23, 2012, Assistant Professor Dr. Björn Martin Siemers died as a result of an infection, within only a few hours, and just two days before his 40th birthday.
14. More stories
Bats can infect humans with Rabies, Marburg, Nipah and many other viruses, some known others unknown.

16. General Official Advice:
Has always been "Never handle a bat with bare hands. Use thick gloves or call a bat removal expert to help you remove bats from your house"
But let's look at the so-called experts!
Please observe the hands...
17. The PPE Flow Chart for Bat Researchers
The details for each set (A, B, C) can be found in a previous tweet in this thread or here:
18. Now let's take a look at the Bat Researchers in action
1. Covered Arms - No!
2. Respirator/N95 Mask - No!
3. Gloves - No!
That is Kendra Phelps from EcoHealth showing us how not to follow their own advice, putting our lives at risk with our tax money, thanks to Fauci & Daszak
19. More Bat Research without Gloves
20. And more!

I'm going to do two history threads on Ethiopia, one on its ancient history, one on its modern story (1800 to today). 🇪🇹

I'll begin with the ancient history ... and it goes way back. Because modern humans - and before that, the ancestors of humans - almost certainly originated in Ethiopia. 🇪🇹 (sub-thread):

The first likely historical reference to Ethiopia is ancient Egyptian records of trade expeditions to the "Land of Punt" in search of gold, ebony, ivory, incense, and wild animals, starting in c 2500 BC 🇪🇹

Ethiopians themselves believe that the Queen of Sheba, who visited Israel's King Solomon in the Bible (c 950 BC), came from Ethiopia (not Yemen, as others believe). Here she is meeting Solomon in a stain-glassed window in Addis Ababa's Holy Trinity Church. 🇪🇹

References to the Queen of Sheba are everywhere in Ethiopia. The national airline's frequent flier miles are even called "ShebaMiles". 🇪🇹
