It's so exciting to see that there are coronavirus vaccines with potential to help so many people!
Whats crazy though is that many people don't even get their flu vaccines....so will people take the coronavirus ones?
I've never gotten a flu shot, and I've also never had the flu. I haven't even gotten a cold in several years. Some people just have better immunity than others. I think diet and exercise plays a large part, and also genetics.
Today it was announced that the FDA approved the first home testing for COVID and the results will be known in 30 minutes. The only requirement is you need a Dr. Rx but how hard would that be to get one? Hopefully, that will alleviate the long lines for testing at sites. All those people in the liens to get tested. Why? I doubt they have symptoms so why waste time in lines to get tested? You could be a negative test and later the same day, be positive. I really think it's a waste of time.
I heard 40% of Covid cases are asymptomatic, so they want everyone to get tested. Getting tested without symptoms makes sense if you know you've been around someone else that tested positive or maybe you went to a gathering recently. But for the rest of us, well, how often? Every month? Every week? If you don't have symptoms, there's also a good chance the test will be negative even if you are infected. I think it makes more sense to work on a reliable and accurate antigen test, but that doesn't seem to be a priority.
