  • Winter will bring new COVID-19 challenges, but it does not have to bring an overwhelming surge

    Boston Globe - 10/26/2020

    “The concern [about flu season] is sort of three-fold,” said Sam Scarpino, a Northeastern University epidemiologist. First, it’s unclear how influenza viruses and the novel coronavirus will interact: They could inhibit one another or have no interaction at all, or each could amplify the other’s spread. Second, both illnesses can inflame the lungs, and anyone who has been sick with either COVID-19 or flu would likely be at higher risk for complications if they later contract the other disease.
