  • Omicron protection

    A bit worried about situation. My Houston area is 80% omicron. Be sure you have pulse oximeter because you might not realize your low oxygen level. Upgrade your mask to n95 masks says epidemiologist.

    Upgrade mask
    “The coronavirus is airborne. Very airborne. Even if you don’t see anyone—doesn’t mean the aerosols aren’t in the air. WATCH ➡️ you need high quality N95 / KN95 / KF94 / FFP2/ FFP3 masks. ➡️ also please ventilate, get HEPA filters, get upper room UV.”

      Monoclonals availability is changing-. Regeneron and Eli Lilly for delta variant and only sotrovimAb if omicron variant. Sotrovimab currently in short supply, so you may have to track it down by calling infusion centers. Antiviral pill(s) are supposed to be on market in next few weeks per Faucci. Talk of convalescent plasma might be used again to give antibodies to immunecomrpmised to prevent serious illness.
      Public health officials are debating when to switch over to sotrovimab, a monoclonal antibody treatment that retains efficacy against omicron.

        Hi SueBee…
        I get rituxan and it has the same problem as Ocrevus in terms of making us less protected by the vaccinations. I posted something today about the 2 shots of evusheld I got yesterday which will solve that problem…hopefully. Let me know what you think.
