More Kids Catch COVID-19

Late last month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) told the story of a teacher in Marin County, California, who came to work one day in May feeling fatigued, with a little nasal congestion. She brushed it off as allergies.

The teacher, who was not vaccinated against COVID-19, took off her mask just long enough to read to the class during story time. Two days later, she tested positive for the virus. So did half her elementary school class of 24. And so did a total of 27 others in other classes, their parents, and siblings.

COVID-19 Drop Causing Another Illness in Children

Our primary care doctors in Delray Beach want to advise you of an unforeseen and unfortunate consequence of the drop in cases of COVID-19: an increase in another illness among children.

Those who are vaccinated—as well as those who aren’t—are mingling more in public without masks. Social distancing is now almost a thing of the past as many have come to believe the pandemic is over. (It isn’t, since just under half of Americans are fully vaccinated for the virus.) This change in behavior is leading to a rise in one particularly serious illness in children, RSV.

What Is An Anti-Inflammatory Diet?

Our primary care concierge doctors in Jupiter have told you many times about the dangers inflammation poses to your health. Often, the best way to reverse these dangers is by participating in an anti-inflammatory diet.

Is it Asthma, Allergies, or COVID-19?

May is Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month because this month is the peak season for allergy and asthma sufferers. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to tell the difference between the two. And these days we have to add COVID-19 to the mix. The symptoms for asthma, allergies and COVID-19 can be quite similar. So how can you tell the difference?

In addition, it’s important to know the difference, because asthma and allergies aren’t contagious. The coronavirus is. If you’re coughing and sneezing when you’re out in public (even with a mask), people are going to look askance at you, and maybe even move away.

So our concierge primary care doctors in Jupiter want to help you sort out the confusion that might arise if you begin experiencing any of these symptoms.

Kids and COVID-19: Latest Updates

With all the millions of words that have been written about the novel coronavirus over the past year, relatively few have covered the topic of COVID-19 and kids. That’s because, once it was discovered that most of the serious illnesses and deaths were concentrated in those who are older, kids seemed to have been forgotten, except for the impact on their schooling.

But our concierge doctors in Jupiter, Florida, have been seeing more studies and reports that have begun to focus on children. We want to pass along the newest information in this area.
