As a result of new coronavirus subvariants, we are experiencing a rise in COVID-19 infections in the U.S. right now.
“COVID is not gone nor will it disappear. We have to develop a truce with it,” said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. “Currently, infections, mostly mild, are increasing, and so are hospitalizations. A further increase is expected this winter. Thus, the best thing all of us can do is to take advantage of the new COVID booster.”
