Virus expert just issued this big COVID warning – eat this not that
As offices open this fall, many businesses are attempting to personally attend to a higher proportion of their workforce. Schools also expect full enrollment in most places. Concurrently, summer travel was busier than in the previous two years as travel around the world increased significantly. With much of the world starting to return to normal, it will become even more important for everyone to focus on COVID-19 safety for a number of reasons. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don’t miss these sure signs you’ve already got COVID.
Regulatory bodies are waving a large number of requirements. Masking will be reduced everywhere. Orders to keep vaccines and boosters running are disappearing. As a result, people can expect many other individuals to participate in regular social activities without a check on their health status and leave many cases undiagnosed.
Without checking their health, people would assume that the pandemic is over. Unfortunately, it’s not like the hundreds of thousands of documented COVID cases are still occurring weekly in the US as of early September (and possibly hundreds of thousands of other uncountable cases).
The proportion of vaccinated individuals in the US is much lower than in most other developed countries (and some underdeveloped countries). The proportion of people with additional booster coverage is even worse. To make matters worse, many of these shots and boosters took place in the first year and a half when vaccines were made available, with many of these individuals possibly having no COVID antibody protection due to decreasing levels over time.
Recently, a major bill from the Biden administration that was designed to flow money to COVID safety treatment and prevention was voted down. This rejection meant less funding would be available for COVID diagnostic tests, vaccine administration clinics, and COVID education. Without this support, expect more and more individuals to be vulnerable to COVID and suffering from the disease creating a more dangerous environment for everyone else.
Australia and New Zealand had the worst flu season in years this year, Since these Southern Hemisphere countries often predict the severity of the North American flu season, epidemiologists are concerned about the upcoming number of flu cases. To make matters worse, calls for additional COVID shots could result in less flu shot acceptance this winter. Anxiety about the so-called “twindemics” may eventually be felt.
