Heart of the East End – April 11th, 2022

Dr. Peter Michalos, Hamptons Health Society

Dr. Michalos gives us an update on the COVID-19 pandemic ahead of the holiday weekend as the virus turns endemic, joining a list of countless viruses with which humankind lives, including more than a 100,000 kinds that have evolved to live within the human gut. Among the topics, Dr. Michalos explains how the Journal of American Medicine has noted correlation between COVID vaccinations and lessened cases of influenza among benefits, plus the increased federal funding for patients suffering from cases of “long-haul” COVID. He also talks about how a recent Hellenic Medical Society gala conducted COVID testing ahead of the event and spotted five positive cases, thus reducing the spread of COVID to hundreds of other guests.
