For those commenting on the funding sources declared by some of authors of #JohnSnowMemo, this is what transparency looks like! @TheLancet letter clearly states this initiative is not funded by any entity. What’s being declared is *other* science funding. Did the GBD have that?🤔

Proud to stand with 100s of public health colleagues in signing the johnsnowmemo.com. We've NEVER achieved herd immunity via natural infection, only with a VACCINE. Until then, we've got to double down on science-based interventions: masks, 6+ ft apart, outdoors > indoors. pic.twitter.com/JedzPIQ9Z0
