The New Age of Common Cold

It used to be known as a common cold! For so many years it accounted for 15 to 20% of  all common colds! In late 2019 and through 2020 it got a once in a lifetime opportunity to terrorize the entire world by rebranding itself as COVID-19!

What will happen to it hereafter? Surely, it will continue to be out there! But as what? You will be surprised  to hear “… as the same old common cold agent who used to be around for so many years!”

Likewise to Corona, influenza used to be among common cold bugs for the past almost 73 years that I have been around! Have I gotten it once or a few times? You bet I must have! Did I get vaccinated against it? I don’t recall any vaccinations until I was officiated as a senior citizen! Was it mandatory for me to get it annually thereafter? No, it was only highly recommended to me! Have I done it every year since then? I’ve done it only once every few years or so! Why did I do what I did? Say it’s because of herd immunity or whatever you desire! How many people have done what I did? I would bet many!
