Take 5 minutes to catch up on Infection Control Today’s highlights for the week ending February 4.
Here are 5 highlights from ICT®’s wide-ranging coverage of the infection prevention and control world. Everything from interviews with known opinion leaders, to the news that infection preventionists and other health care professionals can use on their jobs.
Jamie Seltzer, the director of scientific and medical outreach for #MEAction: “We have so much history—recent history as well as 100 years ago—to tell us that it would be incredibly unusual and atypical if SARS-CoV-2 were the only viral infection that did not lead to post-viral complications.”
Initial data suggest that it appears to be more infectious than even the highly infectious original Omicron variant.
Many people suffer from long COVID, and since COVID-19 is a fairly recent development experts aren’t sure what “long” means exactly. Weeks? Months? Years? A lifetime?
A public/private enterprise taps into the entrepreneurial urge that will hopefully help the United States avoid the disastrous shortages of personal protective equipment that deviled the health care system in the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As we approach year 3, the contribution made by infection preventionists in battling this pandemic needs to be appreciated more.
