Mass. doctor on when to leer doctor, when to take care of house


PRODUCT PACKAGING TO SEE IF IT'S UNDER RECALL A RED ALERT FOR FOR THE FLU IN MASSACHUSETTS, HEALTH OFFICIALS SAY LEVELS ARE HIGH RIGHT NOW IN MOST AREAS AND VERY HIGH NORTH AND SOUTH OF THE CITY, AS YOU CAN SEE ON THAT, ON THAT THAT MAP THERE. IT'S INTERESTING.

THE CITY ITSELF DOESN'T HAVE THE THE VERY HIGH AREA WHICH HAS THE CONCENTRATION OF POPULATION, WHICH DOCTOR TODD ELEANOR IS WITH US, CHIEF OF INFECTIOUS DISEASES AT SOUTH SHORE HEALTH, THE THIS VIRUS IS VERY HARD TO AVOID RIGHT NOW. RIGHT.

I MEAN, YOU CAN'T IT'S TRUE. THE FLU IS VERY HARD TO AVOID, BUT IT FEELS LIKE THERE'S LIKE AN ALPHABET SOUP OF VIRUSES THAT WE'RE GETTING. AND IT'S COMING FROM BOTH ENDS. RIGHT. SO I THINK THE KEY IS TO REALIZE THAT WE CAN PREVENT THIS THROUGH.

GOOD HANDWASHING. STAY HOME WHEN YOU'RE SICK. AND I'LL TELL YOU, AS SOMEONE WHO PRACTICES IN THE HOSPITAL, IF YOU GET VACCINATED, IT MAY NOT PREVENT YOU AGAINST GETTING THE FLU OR OTHER THINGS, BUT IT DOES TEND TO PREVENT YOU FROM GETTING HOSPITALIZED.

HOW MUCH DOES THE SEASON CONTRIBUTE TO IT? I MEAN, LIKE 90% OF OUR TIME IS SPENT CONFIS FIND SPACE SOMEHOW IN THE CAR, IN A BUILDING, IN THE GYM OR WHATEVER. YOU KNOW, MOST OF THESE VIRUSES, YOU KNOW, THE CLOSER WE ARE TOGETHER, THE LONGER PERIOD OF.

TIME YOU'RE IN CLOSE CONTACT,T, THE MORE LIKELY YOU'RE GOING TO GET IT. IT'S IT'S HARD TO AVOID. SO, SO SO THERE ARE TESTS AVAILABLE AT DOCTOR'S OFFICES, RIGHT? I MEAN, THERE ARE TESTS FOR EVERYTHING.

AND BECAUSE BECAUSE THOSE TESTS THEMSELVES ARE AVAILABLE, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THEM? WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE SHOULD EVERYONE GET ONE? I GUESS IS THE BASIC QUESTION. ABSOLUTELY NOT. MOST PEOPLE REALLY DON'T NEED TO BE TESTED.

MOST PEOPLE, WHEN THEY'RE SICK, IF THEY HAVE FEVERS, THEY CAN STAY HOME, WAIT FOR THEIR FEVERS TO GO AWAY, AND THEN EITHER GO BACK TO SCHOOL OR GO BACK TO WORK. NOW HERE'S THEIR CATCH THOUGH. IF YOU ARE VULNERABLE, IF YOU'RE COMPROMISED, IF YOU HAVE.

DIABETES OR CHRONIC LUNGNG OR HEART DISEASE, THEN YOU NEED TO BE TESTED, RIGHT? BECAUSE WHY? BECAUSE YOU NEED TO BE PLACED ON MEDICATION. EVEN IF IT'S INFLUENZA, IT'S IT'S TAMIFLU. IF IT'S COVID, IT'S PAXLOVID.

SO THAT'S IMPORTANT. ANOTHER REASON THAT YOU WANT TO BE TESTED IS IF YOU'RE GOING TO VISIT VULNERABLE PEOPLE. AND AGAIN, IF YOU'RE SYMPTOMATIC, DON'T DO THAT. BUT BUT REMEMBER THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN OUR HABIT BEFORE COVID. BUT ONCE COVID HIT THAT'S THAT'S.

KIND OF ALTERED THE WAY WE HANDLE OUR OWN TREATMENT. RIGHT. IT'S TRUE. AND I'LL TELL YOU RIGHT NOW, MY BOY, JUST GOT SICK WITH A RESPIRATORY VIRUS. YEAH. OKAY.

WHAT WAS THAT VIVIRUS? WELL, IT'S NOT CLEAR, BUT THE BOY THAT HE HAD SLEEPOVERS WITH WAS DIAGNOSED WITH INFLUENZA, SO? SO IT'S MOST LIKELY INFLUENZA, RIGHT. BUT HE ENDED UP GOING TO THE PEDIATRICIAN'S OFFICE BEING.

TESTED NEGATIVE FOR FLU. YEAH, THAT DOESN'T MEAN IT'S NOT INFLUENZA. IF YOU'RE SURROUNDED, IF YOU'RE IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH SOMEONE WITH THE FLU, IT'S LIKELY GOING TO BE THE FLU. SO SO TAKE THAT SCENARIO WITH YOU WITH WITH YOUR OWN SON.

HOW DO YOU DECIDE? OKAY. YEAH, WHATEVER. STAY HOME. DON'T GO TO SCHOOL. YOU KNOW, YOU'RE A PARENT, NOT JUST A DOCTOR. YOU'RE A PARENT. SO YOU STAY HOME.

DON'T GO TO SCHOOL. WHAT, WHAT HOW DO YOU PLAY THAT GAME? OKAY, TO BOIL IT DOWN, IF YOU HAVE FEVERS, YOU NEED TO STAY HOME. IF YOU'RE SIGNIFICANTLY SYMPTOMATIC, YOU NEED TO STAY HOME.

OKAY. WITH THAT SAID, IF YOU HAVE INFLUENZA, YOU CAN ONCE YOU HAVE NO FEVERS FOR 24 HOURS, YOU CAN GO BACK TO SCHOOL. OKAY. WITH COVID, IT'S A LITTLE LONGER. LONGER?.

YEAH. IF YOU'RE NOT TESTING ONCE YOU'RE FEELING BETTER, NO FEVERS. YOU CAN, YOU KNOW, GO BACK TO WORK, GO BACK TO SCHOOL. SO MOST OF THE TIME WE DON'T NEED TO T
