It’s been Confirmed that Apple’s CEO Tim Cook will be Joining Bezos, Zuckerberg & Pichai at Antitrust Hearing in late July

(Click on image to Enlarge)

On June 12 Patently Apple posted a report titled “House Antitrust Investigators are pressing Apple to confirm by Sunday whether Tim Cook will Testify in the Antitrust Probe.” The report noted that “The letters raise the prospect of subpoenas to force testimony and document production if the companies don’t comply voluntarily.” On June 17 we posted a follow-up report titled “Apple’s Legal Team won’t confirm Tim Cook’s attendance before the Antitrust Committee due to Highly Unusual Requests from the Committee.”

Politico noted that “The email from Apple’s lawyer said the committee appeared “to seek rolling production of materials from current, ongoing investigations that postdate the original request.” The lawyer called the request “highly unusual and burdensome,” and said the company “will not agree to a perpetual rolling production with no end date.”

We’re now learning that Kara Swisher has learned from David N. Cicilline who is chairing the House Judiciary Committee antitrust hearings examining Big Tech’s power, that all four big tech CEO’s will testify in late July. Swisher’s tweet is presented below.

To clarify, Swisher added: “Cicilline, who has become one of the biggest critics of the enormous power tech wields, said that Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Google’s Sundar Pichai and Tim Cook of Apple will testify in front of the House Judiciary antitrust subcommittee.”

Demand for flu vaccine soars as countries plan for second Covid-19 wave

Officials in the UK are considering whether to offer flu shots to everyone

The possible beneficial adjuvant effect of influenza vaccine to minimize the severity of COVID-19

Resultant immunity against prior influenza infection would, at least in part, foster immunity against SARS-CoV-2.

Public Health England

It is more important than ever that we have effective plans in place for the 2020/21 flu season to protect those at risk, prevent ill-health and minimise further impact on the NHS and social care

The Dual Epidemics of COVID-19 and Influenza (JAMA 11 June)

Likelihood of co-epidemics of COVID-19 and influenza

Considerable morbidity and mortality

Stressing the health system

2018 – 2019 flu session, US

35.5 million influenza cases

490?600 hospitalizations

34?200 deaths related to influenza

Vaccination prevented

4.4 million influenza cases

58?000 hospitalizations

3500 deaths

Seasonal influenza vaccines have variable year-to-year effectiveness

Can significantly reduce morbidity and mortality, especially with high coverage
Advocates mass flu vaccination


Increased Risk of Noninfluenza Respiratory Virus Infections Associated With Receipt of Inactivated Influenza Vaccine (Clinical Infective Diseases, 2012)

Influenza vaccination is effective in preventing influenza virus infection and associated morbidity among school-aged children

Randomized placebo-controlled trial of influenza vaccination

115 participants were followed up for 272 days

Flu vac group had higher risk of Acute Respiratory Infections associated with confirmed noninfluenza respiratory virus infection

RR, 4.40

The majority of the noninfluenza respiratory virus detections were rhinoviruses and coxsackie, echoviruses, and coronavirus 229E

Receipt of flu vac could increase influenza immunity at the expense of reduced immunity to noninfluenza respiratory viruses, by some unknown biological mechanism.

Temporary nonspecific immunity leading to interference between epidemics of respiratory viruses could have important implications

The UK’s public health response to covid-19

Possible correlation between influenza vaccination and COVID-19 deaths rates in European countries

Flu shots and the risk of coronavirus infections

Possibility that seasonal flu shots are potential contributors COVID-19

Flu shots increased fivefold the risk of acute respiratory infections caused by a group of noninfluenza viruses, including coronaviruses

Odds ratio of 4.91

Influenza vaccines may alter our immune systems non-specifically to increase susceptibility to other infections
