On COVID, seasonal influenza, RSV and other viruses

COVID, flu, RSV – this triple threat of respiratory viruses could collide this winter. But how can we realistically expect the winter to play out?

In this new piece for The Conversation, I look at COVID19, seasonal Influenza, RSV, other coronaviruses and rhinoviruses. I compare how their cases looked before and during the pandemic, and what the outlook is for this winter.

TR&LD: Flu and RSV cases are up, but the real clincher is how big the next COVID wave will be, as Covid Isn’t Over!

Finishing this piece was a bit of a struggle, as I have been down with #COVID myself (reinfection) following two months of chronic laryngitis.
