– REPORT that this is our 96th week of Pandemic.
– DISCUSSION of the good news. Data on 2020 – uptick in hospitalizations. Data on 2021 – uptick in hospitalizations but not as high; deaths dropping; infection rate up but not as high as last year. AND this Omicron variant is not as toxic.
– REPORT that hopefully the worst will be over by Valentine’s Day (says Dr. Brian).
– REPORT that TESTS are way up. 
– REPORT that w/ the new variant, the monoclonal antibodies are not quite as effective.  Omicron variant doubles number of infected people every couple of days.
– REPORT that D.O.H.C. is part of the HOPA system and has the new monoclonal antibodies as well as the oral agents in. Have a small supply @ this point in time.
– REPORT that these new therapies are for AFTER you are vaccinated, AFTER you get infected.

D.O.H.C. w/ Dr. Brian Hodgkins re: Executive V.P. of Clinical Operations @ D.O.H.C.; 275 El Cielo Rd., Palm Springs, 92262. “Your Health, Your Life, Our Passion”. Leads the COVID-10 Taskforce.
– “THE MEDICINE CABINET” Questions from “Joey Pals”.
1. How does a home test work or not? (Great if you can get them. Easy to use. CDC has changed isolation protocols to 5 days now.  Omicron variant stays high in the nose, onset is faster and it clears faster..spreading it from day 5 and beyond is rare. Go to Immediate Care if you have symptoms.)
2. If I’ve had Covid and I’m not vaccinated I was told I CAN NEVER GET COVID AGAIN??? (Not true AT ALL Natural immunity is a GREAT THING. ).
3. WHO said that a new variant will resist the vaccines we have? (The new variant is JUST AROUND THE CORNER and it will seek and find a way to infect people. New vaccines are BEING DEVELOPED AS WE SPEAK!!! Don’t worry.)
4. South African Study says the Omicron protects against the Delta? (Yes, since Omicron is milder and Delta is still circulating, now you have have that immunity from Omicron to protect against the coming variants.)
5. If you are fully vaccinated you don’t have to worry about the Omicron Variant. (The D.O.H.C. employees are showing infections even thought they are fully vaccinated…BUT HAVE VERY SLIGHT SYMPTOMS).
