This is something I have written about since early in the pandemic as I feel it’s an often overlooked point.
When it comes to protecting ourselves against the C19 virus, an important factor is to reduce the viral load.
Sometimes, we may be able to avoid getting infected in the first place – through physical distancing, good hygiene, facemasks and so on.
And in case we do get infected, the same measures helps us reduce the viral load. The fewer viruses we get into our system, the better chance our system have to deal with it.
