Is Covid-19 making his big come-back?

As we embrace the vibrant days of summer, Luxembourg faces an unexpected guest: a resurgence of COVID-19 cases. This uptick in cases prompts a crucial discussion about why we are seeing a return of the virus and how we can bolster our health to enjoy the season to its fullest.

Why is COVID-19 Resurging Now?

Several factors contribute to the resurgence of COVID-19:

  1. Seasonal Changes: While COVID-19 is not strictly seasonal like the flu, changes in human behavior with the seasons, such as increased indoor gatherings when it occasionally gets cooler, can contribute to its spread. In the summer, we love to have a great time with family and friends usually outside, but even though we enjoy our parties under the sun (or moonlight!), the virus still spreads !

  2. Relaxed Precautions: With most restrictions lifted, there's a natural return to pre-pandemic behaviors. This includes international travel and larger gatherings, increasing the likelihood of virus transmission. We have also let the masks down as well as the protections measures we used during the pandemic, which allows the virus to travel and spread more.

  3. Variants of the Virus: The virus continues to evolve, leading to new variants that may spread more easily or escape prior immunity to some extent. Even though the virus has weakened by mutating, the new mutation called "FLiRT" seems to be more resistant to the vaccines without presenting a serious risk in most cases.


Boosting Your Immune System and Maintaining Health

To navigate this resurgence and enjoy a healthy summer, consider the following tips to support your immune system:

  1. Nutrition: Focus on a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. Foods high in vitamin C (like citrus fruits and berries), vitamin D (such as fortified foods and fatty fish), and zinc (found in nuts and seeds) can particularly help support your immune system.

  2. Hydration: Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Dehydration can weaken your body’s defenses, making it harder to fight off infections.

  3. Exercise: Regular physical activity can boost your immune system. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous activity each week, along with muscle-strengthening exercises.

  4. Sleep: Ensure you get adequate sleep. Adults should aim for 7-9 hours per night. Sleep has a direct effect on immune function, so prioritizing good sleep hygiene is crucial.

  5. Stress Management: High stress levels can affect your immune system. Engage in stress-reducing activities such as meditation, yoga, or spending time in nature.
