Half a million US kids diagnosed with Covid-19

In another study conducted by University of East Anglia ENT expert, Carl Philpott, the symptom of a loss of smell compared with those suffering with a cold or flu compared to those with COVID-19 was analysed.

It seemed, at first, that children were not getting coronavirus to speak of. If we had a crystal ball we could tell you what will happen, but unfortunately we don't know.

Think of getting the flu shot as a community initiative.

Schuyler said the role of the county Health and Human Services Department is disease prevention so they're in charged with outreach and education.

Schuyler said county officials will be working with school officials to step up the immunization of children.

"There is a chance you can be coinfected with both", she said.

Covid-19 is much of the reason.

"This is virtually a non-season", said Ian Barr, a professor of microbiology and immunology at the University of Melbourne. "We've never seen numbers like this before".

The two viruses cause similar symptoms but a study published Tuesday in JAMA Network Open found that children hospitalized with COVID-19 were more likely to have fever, aches, diarrhea and vomiting than were children with influenza.

"We wish to reach those communities of color and underrepresented minorities with even more intensity, but we're not a whole lot smarter about how to do that, unfortunately", Schaffner said. "The populations at risk (the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) is similar".

DeJoy's Former Workers Were Reimbursed by Company for GOP Donations
The Post report cited "several non-executive employees who gave substantial political donations". DeJoy was indignant in his reply: "That's an outrageous claim, sir, and I resent it".

Foti said Great Lakes Physician Practice has not received their flu shots this year yet, but did say pharmacies started giving flu shots August 1. The more we vaccinate, the less we are exposed to the virus. "There is some discussion or medical argument that there is an ideal time to vaccinate". However, if you miss this window you can still get the flu shot and reap the benefits.

But flu is particularly risky to children (as well as elderly people).

Historically, only about 45% of U.S. adults and 63% of children get vaccinated against the flu, according to the CDC.

"It's going to be a challenge", Osterholm said, "How are we going to get our flu shots out?"

"I hope not. (The County Health and Human Services Department is) not involved in the supply chain".

Plus, outbreaks of both viruses could mean shortages of personal protective equipment for health care workers.

The study concluded that results suggest that mechanisms of COVID-19 related olfactory dysfunction are different from those seen in people with a cold.

Schuyler said taking a flu shot is better than nothing.

"Now we are heading into flu season".

Australia and other countries in the Southern Hemisphere just finished their easiest flu seasons on record, and the United States and other nations in the Northern Hemisphere could have an easy time, too - if people get flu shots, practice social distancing and wear masks.
