So you woke up with a sore throat and a little runny nose, in the evening you started coughing and felt feverish. In the past year, your mind would have immediately jumped to COVID-19.
But if you are already fully vaccinated, you might wonder: Should I still get tested for COVID-19? Listen to Doc Handal’s new podcast on this important topic.
The focus on too many fronts is on the number of vaccinated in the population BUT the proof the pandemic is ending will be in the number of new cases. Remember more spread more likely a variant of concern could arise.
Positive COVID-19 test still means quarantine so if whether or not you were vaccinated get tested if you have symptoms.
As I said above full vaccinated persons can catch the virus and spread it. Listen and find out from Doc Handal about breakthrough cases.
The prevailing educated guess is that the pandemic will go endemic! Endemic means that there are always people who are infected, who pass the infection to somebody else and then recover. Only 2 ways a pandemic can end either go on to be endemic or virus is eradicated. Read what else is changing for the future.
Over one year ago WHO declared a pandemic. Since that time a few effective vaccines were created and jabbed into the arms of over a billion folks worldwide. The vaccines prevent severe illness from the SARS-CoV-2 virus but do not keep one from contracting and spreading the virus. These vaccines also are not as effective against all variants presently known. The more the virus mutates, the more chances it has to outsmart the present vaccines.
