The US is on track for a devastating fall and winter, as Covid-19 could kill more than 2,900 people a day in the US.
Cold weather, the flu season, reopened schools and pandemic fatigue are a recipe for devastation. More people indoors, creates less opportunity for viral particles to disperse.
"there's good enough data to say that aerosol transmission (of coronavirus) does occur," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. "Aerosol means the droplets don't drop immediately. They hang around for a period of time."
The flu season starts in October and this year with the coronavirus pandemic could spell trouble for the health care system and your own body. Having one of the two viruses can make you more vulnerable to infection with the other.
Getting a flu shot this year may be more important than ever
