As we approach the festive season, please accept my best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
And above all, I hope you all stay safe. Winter is when bugs spread, and our bodies are less resistant to their onslaught. In addition to seasonal flu and common cold (caused partly by non-Covid coronaviruses), we are now facing another substantial COVID-19 wave.
As a reminder: To strengthen your immune system, eat good food and stay relaxed. Take appropriate supplements, if needed (a lot of us in the North need to boost our levels of Vitamin D). Consider vaccination, particularly if vulnerable.
Ventilate the rooms, particularly if more people are in. If you suspect infection (be it flu, cold, or Covid), stay at home or wear a mask.
Simply, follow common sense.
