IDPH: COVID_19 Treatment Keeping Thousands Out of Hospitals

(IOCI RADIO) – The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) said COVID-19 treatments have kept thousands of people out of the hospital.

There were nearly 20,000 new cases of coronavirus reported over the past week, not counting those that tested positive at home. But the good news is that therapies like Paxlovid are working, IDPH spokesperson Mike Claffey said.

Claffey said they strongly recommend everyone to consider the new Bivalent booster shot that helps protect against the original strain of COVID-19 and the omicron variant, including those who have been double boosted at least two months ago.
