#ThrowbackThursday: With COVID-19's arrival, I updated my 2014 post on "the Dracula sneeze" in case anyone should land on it. Just as well, too - CDC links were broken and the evidence I'd cited was very out-of-date. Still shocked, though, that there hasn't been more evidence.

Cochrane published the first progress report for the update of the Cochrane review on exercise and ME/CFS, with a new "home" for news about it.
