Dr. Michael Hirsh and the Future of Living with the Virus
The average number of weekly Covid cases has doubled recently but severe cases have remained low. Dr. Michael Hirsh called into the Talk of the Commonwealth with Hank Stolz morning show to go over the latest numbers and why what is happening now is what we will probably be living with in the future. With the stealth omicron variation not being as severe we may see our response becoming more like our response to the flu. Hirsh said outreach into the community is ongoing to get people vaccinated and now boosted and that will continue through at least May. If you are over 50 it is recommended that you get a 4th shot, especially if you are in a high risk category.
