ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “What’s COVID distancing doing to our immunity against other viruses? | The Drum” – below is their description.
One of the short-term benefits of COVID was the normal snotty noses and contagious coughs were pretty much kept at bay.
But it did mean some experts were concerned about so-called ‘immunity debt’ – that kids would normally be exposed to seasonal viruses wouldn’t build up their immunity.
And a virus with similar symptoms to COVID has been spreading over the ditch at a rapid pace – with kids fighting for their lives in intensive care.
