The first case of Monkeypox in Douglas County grabs the headlines this week, but the Covid-19 coronavirus threat remains, according to "Nebraska Medicine" infectious disease expert Dr. Mark Rupp, who says "it's not having as much impact because of the existing immunity to some degree, and also we have some anti-virals; the vaccines continue to blunt the major serious illness."
"We continue to see an awful lot of Covid-19 in the community," Rupp says. "I think there's probably as much now as ever; most of these cases don't go diagnosed now because people are not getting tested or they're doing home test kits that just don't get reported to public health."
Mark Rupp was interviewed by Gary Sadlemyer on Newsradio 1110 KFAB.
