COVID-19 Update – Pandemic to Endemic - Where Do We Go from Here?
We’ve been living with COVID-19 for over 2-1/2 years, and with new variants the virus, like the flu, will probably be with us from now on. With improved vaccines, we are able to protect adults and children alike against severe illness. But the virus is still all around us, and all around the world.
And there are also other concerns – about monkeypox, the reappearance of polio, and a possibly severe flu season.
Dr Manish Naik, Austin Regional Clinic’s Chief Medical Officer, breaks down the facts – and myths – about our future with COVID-19, other viruses, and how health care is responding.
