Covid News

  1. I wrote yesterday that we didn’t know how long Long Covid would last. We still don’t but now we know it’s more than a year. We also know that some of the organ damage is permanent.
  2. A teacher in a Marin County, California elementary school was one of two unvaccinated, and came to work with symptoms that she thought we due to allergies. Wrong. She infected 22 students and 4 parents with Delta.
  3. More than 100,000 Americans were admitted to hospitals due to Covid in the past week. We’re back to last December. (Remember, history repeats itself if people fail to learn from it.)
  4. Among children, teen aged 16 and 17 have the highest rate of Covid infection. (Yep, these would be the ones working at your favorite burger shop.)
  5. Both the AstraZeneca/Oxford and the Pfizer BioNTechaccines vaccines have been shown to reduce the risk of blood clots from Covid.
