"Life is too short to risk your health I have learnt the hard way I don't want people making the same mistakes I have", he said.
A similar study from earlier this month found evidence that the United Kingdom was also overtaken by the same virus strain over the spring. They alert uninfected cells that a virus of any type has invaded the body. Patients presenting shortly (within 3 days) after symptom onset tended to be older (65 vs 58 years) and were more likely to have hypertension (59% vs 41%) and chronic kidney disease (14% vs 3%) than those admitted after one week.
Houston's second wave hit significantly younger patients who had fewer underlying conditions and were more likely to be Hispanic/Latino living in lower income neighborhoods.
