Bourla reveals the reason behind his COVID positive

Mr. Bourla reveals through his tweet the actual reason behind the positive covid test. He says that he hasn’t done the bivalent booster yet which was newly found by his company because he was waiting for three months to get over it after being affected by the previous covid which was in August as per the guideline of the CDC. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that people who are affected and recovered from covid to wait for 3 months from when the symptoms began before getting the booster vaccines. This is because getting infected with the disease is similar to getting your booster and the chance of getting a new infection for the next three months is relatively negligible. It also says that people need not want to wait for three months if the situation is worse in the community by the increasing infection or if the people are prone to diseases as they have lower immunity power.

It was in August the new bivalent booster got approved by the FDA. The major aim of the bivalent booster was to fight the BA.4 and BA.5 Omicron subvariants. According to a US federal health agency, more than 25 million of the bivalent booster has been sold out and it mainly consists of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine as the booster produced by Moderna is in high demand. The updated vaccine of Pfizer/ BioNTech is 30 micrograms which can be used for those who are 12 years and older. While the updated vaccine of Moderna is a 50 microgram dose that can be used for those who are 18 years and older.

In a recent interview which was conducted US president, Biden declared that the pandemic is over which arouse a lot of criticism soon. But later the president himself clarified that statement, by telling that he meant that the virus is not as strong as it was before as the count of the affected people and the intensity of the illness and symptoms are less when compared with the previous situation. He also said he wanted his entire system to get back to normal.
