COVID-19 Peak At Least 3 Weeks Away: Virologist

With the Omicron variant spreading, it’s important to keep a healthy immune system. That’s according to virologist Dr. Cindy Duke. She says there are ways to do this apart from mainstream treatments like being vaccinated and boosted. Duke recommends eating a diet high in antioxidants and keeping any underlying conditions like diabetes under control. Broadly speaking she says COVID-19 cases are overwhelming hospitals—and that there are worker shortages because people are out sick or at home watching their kids who can’t go to school due to closures. But she says the peak is coming, and afterward, cases will come back down.
