This week, we're kicking off the second season of How This Works. Cue the fanfare.
And we're starting it by revisiting with Dr. Peter Chin-Hong of UCSF, getting into the current state of coronavirus/COVID, what teaching medicine looks like right now, and what infectious diseases might come in the future. We recorded this episode over two sessions and and covered a good amount of topics along the way, including the notion of reinfections (more and more common with Omicron), how the testing numbers may not reflect actual cases with more and more home testing (and some people not testing at all), how an at-home test is different than a PCR test, and the current slate of variants — BA.1, BA.2, BA2.12.1, BA.4, BA.5, XE, etc.
