Are we in the middle of a tripledemic? US health secretary explains

Three diseases lurk among us at the onset of cold weather: COVID-19, RSV and influenza. However, the United States Secretary of Health Javier Becerra clarified that we are not in a tripledemic.

“One has to remember that pandemic is a word that we use when it is affecting us, which we cannot control, so it is for me to think that there is a reason to talk about tripledemic. Means people are not going to take care of themselves. I cannot be satisfied with this, people can take care of themselves”, he confirmed.

With regard to COVID-19, the health minister assured that between 300 and 400 Americans are dying from the disease daily, mostly due to non-vaccination.

COVID-19, influenza and RSV are three viruses with similar symptoms and can be fatal, so doctors recommend getting vaccinated.

“The Covid virus no longer rules us, it no longer controls us like before, but if you don’t get vaccinated you can not only rule but you can also kill,” he warned.

Similarly, Becerra warned that there are people who are paying for their lives by believing false information about vaccines.

“Propaganda is costing us a lot, so much for the lives of our loved ones,” he insisted.

For this reason, the Secretary urged the community to be immunized against the coronavirus and influenza, listing preventive measures to avoid becoming infected with RSV, such as frequent hand washing and avoiding sharing with sick people. .

“The impact is quite high, so we have to take measures to protect the family and be able to help the hospitals,” Becerra concluded.
