  • We won’t know ‘for many months to a year’ how long immunity will last for recovered Covid-19 patients, Anthony Fauci said Tuesday.

    Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health and a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, will join Georgetown students for an update on the COVID-19 pandemic, a consideration of its implications for public policy, and a candid conversation on the unique risks and responsibilities young people have in mitigating the spread of COVID-19.

    The inherent uncertainty of a global pandemic, combined with our evolving and changing understanding of the disease and the effectiveness of potential interventions, presents a unique challenge for policymakers. The situation is further complicated by the significant spread of misinformation and disinformation on social media, making it difficult to rally support around necessary policies. As one of the most visible leaders in public health, Dr. Fauci brings years of experience and deep expertise to global and national efforts to combat COVID-19.

    In This Story: Allergy

    Allergies are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to typically harmless substances in the environment. These include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis. Symptoms may include red eyes, an itchy rash, sneezing, a runny nose, shortness of breath, or swelling.

    Common allergens include pollen and certain foods. Metals and other substances may also cause problems. Food, insect stings, and medications are common causes of severe reactions. Their development is due to both genetic and environmental factors.

    Treatments for allergies include the avoidance of known allergens and the use of medications such as steroids and antihistamines. In severe reactions injectable adrenaline (epinephrine) is recommended.

    Allergies are common. In the developed world, about 20% of people are affected by allergic rhinitis, about 6% of people have at least one food allergy, and about 20% have atopic dermatitis at some point in time. Depending on the country about 1–18% of people have asthma. Anaphylaxis occurs in between 0.05–2% of people.
