Reminders: Got a packed day at the hospital so can’t answer all questions But many Qs are already answered; read my timeline. Consult your doctor for individual medical care My approach is practical, not ideal. If you’re looking for 100% certainty, I’m not your man:) Be well!

Perspective: Delta was 2 times more transmissible than the original Wuhan strain Omicron is 4 times more transmissible than Delta! This is why we must wear masks and avoid gatherings for the time being

تحقیق سے ثابت ہے کہ کرونا سے خوفزدہ ہونے یا اسکا مذاق اڑانے کے علاوہ ایک درمیانہ راستہ بھی ہے: - ماسک پہنیں - ویکسین لگوایں (اور بُوسٹر بھی) - شادی اور دیگر تقریبات پر خاص احتیاط کریں 1-2 ماہ میں یہ لہر گذر جائے گی انشاللہ۔ بے صبری یا ضد سے اپنا اور اپنے پیاروں کا نقصان نہ کریں
