We've had a wakeup call. Viral pandemics will be our reality for the foreseeable future. We're at war with COVID-19. We must change our way of thinking and living. Could this be a good thing for us in the long term even if we suffer in the short term?
Oblivious to Viral Pandemics?
Are you like me? I buzzed merrily through the bird and swine flus. Past pandemics barely registered on my personal radar. Somebody somewhere was managing these for me. I was fine with that. I felt safe.
Those excess pounds are something to worry about during a viral pandemic. Obesity increases the risk of dying from COVID-19. If you're overweight, you are also at increased risk for hospitalization during this influenza pandemic.
We're all scared. We're all looking for good news. There is some, but first I'm here to tell the awful truth about excess pounds and influenza infections in hopes of saving your life or the life of someone you love.
