PEDIATRIC GASTROENTEROLOGISTS. They work with vulnerable children but love me and my fellow viruses more than they love those kids so they partied like I wasn’t even a thing then tried to delete the evidence. But I remember. I’ll always remember. And you should too. #nasphaghan22
I also remember my HCW friends at #fens2022 & #chedt22 & countless other MEDICAL conferences where you ditched that old fashioned “do no harm” thing & held dance parties to spread my highly contagious potentially debilitating pandemic self around. You’re all amazing. Just amazing

That means that probably 2000 people will return home infected with COVID.
3/ Of these 2000 people with COVID, a few hundred people will be knocked out for a few days or weeks.
