Here we are at the end of 2021 or is it 2020?  Seems that all the years are starting to blend together as we now head into 2022 or will it be 2023?  Am I the only one who has totally lost track of time?

The Corona Virus also known as the Chinese Virus and Covid-19 changed the world so drastically and, unfortunately, we also have many variants to contend with, all named after the Greek alphabet. Let’s hope we don’t have to use all 25 letters.

Do we mask or not, so we get the vax and/or boosters, do we continue to live in our cocoon or mingle with family and friends? 

Who do we listen to for correct information on the pandemic? Most people think Fauci is an overpaid flip-flopper who has overstayed his welcome – I do agree.  Every talk show host, every faux news reporter, every Hollywood personality, etc. all share their views on the pandemic protocol as if they were the experts who know everything. 

Where to we get the truth? Listen to the Science. I was introduced to the podcast, This Week in Virology (TWiV) co-hosted by Dr. Daniel Griffin and Vincent Racaniello, who are the real deal.  Take a few minutes to listen to virologists and immunologists to learn the truth about this fast spreading germ.

Now’s the time to change the subject and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa and a belated Hanukkah, and of course, a very healthy, Happy New Year.   

By the way, In My Opinion will be taking a break for the holidays and returning on January 3, 2022.  If you enjoy this column, please let me know by commenting below.
