Many well-done newer studies are supporting the theory that quality trumps quantity when it comes to sleep. This excellent article at lifehack.org lists 12 good sources, including “two studies (which) assessed how sleep quality and quantity affected college students’ health and well-being. The studies concluded that sleep quality was a better predictor for ...

I really liked the pathology textbook Robbins & Cotran Pathologic Basis of Disease. I own the massive book, and it's pretty well written and not difficult to read, given that you have the science background to understand it. Not that I could sit down and read it, I used it more as a topic reference, but I did have classmates who read the thing, kudos ...

Kaggle has an ongoing competition analysing COVID-19 related medical literature.
This competition provides a large dataset, as well as already published analysis tools and other assistance to get you started.
Apparently no reports from that German experience, but recently researchers published a working paper with the results of "A randomized-trial of community-level mask promotion in rural Bangladesh during COVID-19 shows that the intervention tripled mask usage and reduced symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infections ..."
Well, I haven't found that one, but it's probably covering the same data as the preprint that impressed Fauci.
Twelve days or more after the booster dose we found an 11.4-fold (95% CI: [10.0, 12.9]) decrease in the relative risk of confirmed infection, and a >10-fold decrease in the relative risk of severe illness. Under a conservative sensitivity ...
Your analysis looks similar to:
