Viral 'tripledemic' is keeping many of us sick for weeks at a time

From a Washington Post story today:

As Year 4 of the coronavirus pandemic approaches, Lane and other doctors agree the overlapping viral surges and how they are playing out are unusual and concerning: Patients with back-to-back respiratory illnesses. Simultaneous infection with three or more viruses, or with bacterial infections, such as Strep A. Otherwise healthy people suffering for weeks, rather than days, with simple colds.

This has pretty much been my story this year. It’s a bit of a relief to see it’s not just me. But tragic on a global scale…
