According to FOX 2, Michigan hospitals see a positive direction in cases of patients with COVID after weekly exposure to high levels of infection.
Mask requirements across the country are being removed (except for businesses that want to maintain the policy). According to the information report, doctors are optimistic, but are not sure what will happen next.
“Hopefully we’re approaching an endemic,” said Dr. Matthew Sims, director of infectious disease research at Beaumont Health, the article said. “We were in this very place before, where all the numbers fell, and we were hit by another surge.”
Dr. Sims also attributed the drop in infection to the herd’s immunity.
“I think that between infection and vaccination we are approaching a common immunity. The closer you see the immunity of the herd, the more it falls, ”he said in the article, adding that he is not sure what will happen to COVID.
“I don’t think it’s going to last because we know these antibodies are declining, and if we get another option, that’s further, these antibodies may not be so strong in protecting us,” Dr. Sims said. “So far we have to keep guard because we don’t know what’s around the corner.”
