COVID-19 Q&A from LC Health Department leaders
Each week the Lake Cumberland District Health Department takes questions from media and the public. Following is one of the recent topics, more will run through the days ahead as we learn and respond to COVID-19:
From Amy Tomlinson
Question - Case numbers are going up but hospitalizations are not. Does that mean cases are less severe as the virus spreads across populations?
LCDHD Answer - We cant say for sure right now. According to some research, how severely one reacts to a virus can be impacted by how large of a dose of the virus to which one was exposed.
Perhaps with more people masking and social distancing, when transmission happens, the dosage of the virus being transmitted may well be smaller than before the public knew to take the masking and distancing precautions.
With a smaller dosage of exposure, ones natural defenses have a better chance of fighting it. The age of people contracting the disease has decreased and since they are younger, we aren't seeing the severe cases like earlier in the pandemic.
