- The Facts:Doctors at the University of Chicago Medicine are seeing “truly remarkable” results using high-flow nasal cannulas rather than ventilators and intubation to treat some COVID-19 patients.
- Reflect On:Are there better ways of doing things when it comes to COVID-19? Has this issue been politicized, which prevents us from receiving accurate information about it?
A lot of noise is being made right now about a vaccine being the only realistic way to treat COVID-19 patients, and the entire population. Bill Gates, who is funding many of the current vaccine efforts that are currently in development has emphasized that “things won’t go back to truly normal” until there is a vaccine that has been made available for billions of people to take. There are even rumours in the air that there will be an attempt to make the vaccine necessary if one wants to travel or return to work, for example, but a recent poll in Canada suggests that half of the population doesn’t believe that making the COVID-19 vaccine mandatory is the right thing to do.
