Following a brief respite from rising cases in the fall, omicron, the newest and most transmissible Covid-19 variant, is tearing its way across the globe, causing spikes in cases within days. It feels like 2020 all over again as governments implement familiar safety measures. A return to normal is still elusive, as it appears that 2022 will be the third year in a row marked by fear and confusion, positive tests and near misses. We are in much better shape now than we were at the beginning of the pandemic. We have learned a lot more about how Covid-19 works. We have developed effective masks, vaccines, boosters, treatments, and rapid tests. In this new ‘normal’, there is an abundance of innovations that help with all aspects of our lives.
