coronavirus The pandemic is not over; In fact, one virus expert expects another surge this fall. “This is worrying,” former FDA commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said yesterday. face the nation, when discussing the rise of the more permeable delta variant. You may feel safely vaccinated, but more than of Americans are not vaccinated, and thus are sitting ducks for this new version. The UK is considering postponing its inauguration over this; It has already destroyed a lot of India. Read on to hear Gottlieb’s warning and four other life-saving advice, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don’t miss these. Sure Signs You Have “Long” COVID and Might Not Even Know It.
The Delta version is “causing a lot of problems in the United Kingdom. The government is considering delaying the reopening for a month,” said host John Dickerson. “The version started in India, but now it’s spreading across the world. What should we think about it?” “It will continue to spread,” Gottlieb said. “It’s related.” Vaccines are protective against it – but more than of Americans have not been vaccinated. “It appears to be more permeable. There was data from [epidemiologist] Neil Ferguson showed this week that it is about 60% more permeable than the 117, which was the older UK version they are now calling the alpha version. So it’s more contagious. It appears that people who have this virus have higher viral loads and those viral loads last longer. So they just shed more viruses in the United States. That’s about 10% of infections, it’s doubling every two weeks. So that’s probably going to be the major tension here in the United States. This does not mean that we are going to see a sharp increase in infections, but it does mean that it will end. And I think the risk is really of a decline that this could lead to the collapse of a new pandemic.”
We have tools that work to fight COVID, said Gottlieb of Vaccines. “We only need to use those devices, I think in parts of the country where you have less vaccination, especially in parts of the South, where you have some cities where vaccination rates are low, there is a risk That you can see outbreaks with it. New Edition. The outbreaks that are happening in the UK are happening around schools, where you have a lot of kids who haven’t been vaccinated.”
COVID can remain variable. More variants may come. Get vaccinated to prevent them from mutating. “The good news is that so far, none of these variants that we have seen beat the vaccine – for some of them, the vaccines are slightly less effective, but the vaccines have maintained their effectiveness against all of these variants, That includes 617. So I don’t think we’re going to see a situation where we wake up one day like we sometimes see with influenza where all of a sudden our vaccine doesn’t work, at least not in the near future.”
The CDC is investigating cases of pericarditis in some people, mostly young people, who have received the vaccine. “I think this is something that the CDC and FDA should be looking at carefully,” Gottlieb said. “I don’t think people should panic about it right now. I don’t think it shifts the risk-benefit balance for this vaccine. Right now, these cases are in men 18 to 24, more than women, about 80 people.” Of the cases we saw in men, about 12 million people between the ages of 18 and 24 have been vaccinated. We found 275 cases. It’s not clear if there’s a causal relationship between the vaccine in these cases—if There is, so it’s probably an inflammatory reaction from the vaccine, we know that the vaccine causes an inflammatory reaction. A lot of these cases have happened soon after vaccination. The vast majority have been self-limited, treated with steroids or NSAIDs. In some cases, patients haven’t really gotten sick. And we also have to keep in mind that people, especially young people, are going out more and we’re seeing more outbreaks of common viruses. There is an increase in respiratory syncytial virus, enterovirus, echo vi rus, coxsackie virus.It may therefore happen that as young people get vaccinated, they become more A is going out, they are exchanging other viruses.”
“The majority of cases where we have seen pericarditis and we believe it may be an association with their vaccine have occurred within the first two or three days immediately after vaccination, with most signs and symptoms of pericarditis usually after the second dose. stabbing or severe chest pain. It’s persistent, it’s located. So it hurts more when you lie back. Sometimes it hurts when taking a deep breath, because of the pericardium, the lining of the heart rubs against the chest wall, and it may be associated with fever.”
Follow basic public health principles and help end this pandemic no matter where you live – get vaccinated as soon as possible, and if you haven’t been vaccinated, wear one face mask One that fits comfortably and is double layered, don’t travel, social distance, avoid large crowds, don’t go indoors with people (especially at bars), practice good hand hygiene, and live your life To protect and others’ lives, don’t go on any of these 35 places you’re most likely to catch COVID.
