Dr. Fauci says if you have COVID, do it – eat it, not this


The COVID-19 Experts say the pandemic has entered a new phase: we need to learn to live with it, and at the same time do everything we can to postpone it. The super-infectious version of Omicron has raised new daily case numbers to a previously unimaginable level – 1.3 million, according to the latest count. At the same time, Omicron appears to cause less severe disease: a new CDC study found that Omicron is 91% less likely to cause death than the Delta version. But due to the prevalence of Omicron, additional versions are more likely to be developed and expanded worldwide. What happens next is impossible to predict.

Some good news: New drugs for COVID will be available in the coming weeks and months, including a number of antiviral drugs. During a meeting of the White House Coronavirus Working Group this week, dr. Anthony Fauci he walked through the upcoming drugs that were supposed to make COVID – at least as we know it now – a less severe, more manageable disease. Read on to learn more – and to ensure your health and the health of others, don’t miss them Reliable signs that you have already had COVID.


The CDC says “if you’ve been exposed, Quarantine and avoid others when you have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19. If you are sick or test positive, isolate when you are ill or have COVID-19, even if you have no symptoms. “Then talk to your doctor and monitor your symptoms. Your doctor may recommend one of the following medicines, depending on your case.” What I really want to do, among more “The other thing is to prevent people from progressing to serious illness,” Fauci said.

By doing so, “you shorten the duration of the disease. You reduce the contagion and transmission to some extent,” he said. “And what’s important, especially when we’re facing this emergency with Omicron, is reducing stress on the health care system.”

Read on to see what Fauci has to say about the upcoming COVID drugs.

This antiviral drug, manufactured by Pfizer – a five-day course of oral medicines taken shortly after the onset of symptoms – was approved by the Food and Drug Administration at the end of last year. Clinical trials have shown it resulted in an 89 percent reduction in hospitalizations and deaths due to COVID, Fauci said.

This intravenous monoclonal antibody treatment has been shown to be effective against the Omicron version, making many other monoclonal drugs useless. Studies have shown it causes an 85 percent reduction in the risk of severe COVID-19 or death, Fauci said.

The antiviral drug produced by Merck, molnupiravir, works by introducing defects into the genetic code of the COVID virus and preventing it from reproducing. It has been found to reduce the risk of hospitalization or death by 30%, Fauci said.

Production of these drugs is currently increasing. They will be short of offers for some time. So who should have priority access to limited resources? “The greatest priority, as always, should be given to patients with the highest risk of disease progression,” Fauci said. In order are:

  • Immune-weakened people who are not vaccinated and are at high risk, meaning anyone over the age of 75, or people over the age of 65 who have a clinical risk factor
  • Unvaccinated people at increased risk, meaning anyone over 65 or under 65 with a clinical risk factor
  • High-risk vaccinated people
  • Vaccinated people at increased risk

Best bet: you win in full vaccinated and receive a booster dose as soon as possible. If you experience symptoms of COVID, call your doctor for advice. They will prescribe treatment based on your individual risk factors, the medicines available, and the latest information on their effectiveness.

Follow the basics and help end this pandemic, no matter where you live – get vaccinated as soon as possible; if you live in an area with a low vaccination rate, wear an N95 face mask, do not travel, social distance, avoid big crowds, do not walk indoors with people you do not hide from (especially in bars), exercise good hand hygiene and to protect your life and the lives of others, do not visit any of these 35 places where COVID is most likely to get sick.
