Why some Infectious Disease experts say COVID-19 will soon be behind us

Published on

The common belief seems to be the COVID19 pandemic is going to be with us at least until the end of this year and possibly well into 2022.  But some infectious disease experts are making much more aggressive predictions.  In fact Dr. Monica Gandhi (bio below) is already beaming with joy over the data pouring in showing the vaccines spreading throughout the world are working incredibly well.  Enjoy this interview.  It will absolutely help you feel better about the state of our battle against COVID-19.

This article is from ZDoggMD

A UCSF (University of California, San Francisco) infectious disease doctor is convinced this pandemic is ending, and sooner than you think…here’s why.

Dr. Monica Gandhi is a professor of medicine at UCSF and here are our other episodes together.

And here’s her latest study in the Lancet.

An excerpt from the following video: “So we have tons of PhD epidemiologists who are painting gloom and doom pictures everywhere. Well, you know, first it was this. And then, you know, okay, now we have a vaccine but you know what, the variants are coming. So we’re probably gonna have to wear seven masks and stay shut down. And by the way, don’t even think about opening schools. Why are you thinking about opening schools? Oh, by the way it’s your bad behavior that caused all this death, and so we’re gonna shame you. And on top of that, it’s never gonna get better. So expect 2023, before we get back to a semblance of what will be a new normal, which will be we’ll all be in bubbles. So get those guys out of the picture and go with actual physicians who touch patients. What’s your thinking right now? Where are we in this mess?

Dr. Gandhi:  We are just facing like complete dawn of hope and light and love. Like it’s gonna be so great. It is getting so great. So what happened, right? Like March 11th was the day that the WHO declared this a worldwide pandemic. November 9th, we got the first press release from the first vaccine. Phase three clinical trial, that fast. And then we’ve had seven phase three clinical trials. So we have seven vaccines in circulation around the globe that work. And they work exactly using the same protein in different ways using that protein, and they work beautifully, and they all work beautifully against preventing what even made us notice on January 31st, 2019 or December 31st, 2019 that something terrible was happening, which is severe disease. They all work almost 100% to prevent… 100% for hospitalizations. And then like in the 90s to prevent you not even feeling well at home. So they’re amazing.”

The interviewer is Dr. Zubin Damania.   Trained at Stanford and the University of California, San Francisco, Dr. Damania is the founder of Turntable Health, an innovative primary care clinic and model for Health 3.0.  He produces videos and live shows under the pseudonym “ZDoggMD” which have collected nearly a billion views.

Toronto Raptors’ game against Chicago postponed due to COVID-19 cases

Published on

NEW YORK — Tonight’s Toronto Raptors game against Chicago has been postponed due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

A statement from the NBA says that because of positive test results and ongoing contract tracing, the Raptors don’t have the league-required eight available players.

The Raptors were missing head coach Nick Nurse, five members of his staff and star forward Pascal Siakam for Friday’s win over Houston.

This is the first game the Raptors have had rescheduled due to COVID-19.

They had mostly managed to avoid the global pandemic, as one of just four teams in the NBA who hadn’t had a game postponed until now.

Due to Canada’s border regulations around COVID-19, and health and safety measures in Toronto, the Raptors are playing their home games out of Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla.

Assistant Sergio Scariolo coached Friday’s 122-111 win over Houston
