Big news from the US government: They’re rolling out FREE at-home self-test kits for COVID. But what’s the story behind it?

The medical community is closely monitoring a new variant of COVID-19 known as BA.2.86. This variant has gained attention due to its distinctive profile, harbouring an impressive 30 mutations within its spike protein. These mutations raise valid concerns about the variant’s potential to pose challenges to our existing immunity.

So, let’s focus on the comprehensive precautionary measures we can take:

1) If you’re among the immunocompromised, please prioritize mask usage as a primary safeguard.

2️) Don’t forget to get self-test kits—they’re essential for early detection and can help determine if Paxlovid, a promising treatment, is needed.

3️) Booster shots are another line of defence to consider, particularly for individuals with compromised immune systems.

Staying informed remains paramount as the situation evolves. We’re committed to navigating these challenges together with diligence and a commitment to safeguarding public health.
