This video is a nice update on Covid-19. It was recorded in August 2022. 

From CDC:

Symptoms –

People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms.

Possible symptoms include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

This list does not include all possible symptoms. CDC will continue to update this list as we learn more about COVID-19. Older adults and people who have underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes are at higher risk for getting very sick from COVID-19.

Staying Up to Date with COVID-19 Vaccines

COVID-19 vaccines help your body develop protection from the virus that causes COVID-19. Although vaccinated people sometimes get infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, staying up to date on COVID-19 vaccines significantly lowers the risk of getting very sick, being hospitalized, or dying from COVID-19. CDC recommends that everyone who is eligible get a booster and stay up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines, especially people with weakened immune systems.

If you are moderately or severely immunocompromised or severely allergic to COVID-19 vaccinesTalk with a healthcare provider about whether you are eligible for a medicine called  EVUSHELD™ that you can take before you are exposed or test positive for COVID-19. This medicine contains two different antibodies and is given by your healthcare provider every 6 months.  EVUSHELD™ may offer less protection against certain strains of the Omicron variant. It is important that even if you receive  EVUSHELD™, you take multiple prevention measures. See additional information for making a COVID-19 plan to protect yourself from infection.

 

There is a whole industry on Covid-19 Vaccine lies. Please know the facts. Protect yourself and others. Factcheck.org has a huge section on the lies that have been pushed on the American public regarding Covid-19. Know the facts.
