Apparently, it’s now fashionable to take a drug called Paxlovid and inform everybody you come across about this fact. Our Dean started the annual summer meeting today by informing us that he took Paxlovid last month. This is the first time in my memory people share their medication history with a large group of people at work.
COVID did something weird to some of us. We’ve all had opportunities to take medication in our lives. But normally people don’t make reports on their meds to colleagues or distant acquaintances. And they still don’t, thank goodness, unless COVID is involved.
