This week's clinical update was pretty interesting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVtaNXyWcaE

Among other things, Dr. Griffin mentioned a study that looked at the omicron wave in Hong Kong. This shows what happens when omicron hits a largely unvaccinated population: a mortality rate of around 4%. Dr. Griffin's summary: "what made omicron 'milder' was vaccines."

Other items of note:

Omicron progresses to the inflammatory phase faster than previous variants. This means that there's a shorter window for getting antivirals.

Three in ten children hospitalized with covid has no underlying health issues. Dr. Griffin: "children are at risk from covid."

Some good news: there are more and better antivirals on the way.
