This whole pandemic has us tired, too.
We all know the names by now:
While there is much we don't know about the coronavirus, there is ONE thing we do know:
We don't want anyone to have it.
The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a light on deeply embedded inequities in Black and brown communities--inequities that continue to leave these communities at higher risk of disease and death. "Not A Host (N.A.H.)" is an effort spearheaded by public health professionals, physicians, psychologists, and community advocates with a common mission:
raising awareness about COVID-19 pandemic among the most marginalized in our community.
The Host You Know
The Host You Don't Know
We all know them.
In fact, we might BE them.
Either way, we love the person who sends the "Come through" text.
"Firing up the grill"
"I got the drinks. You bring the food."
This one, you might not know.
Because you likely have no idea you're "hosting" or carrying a pesky virus in your body.
This is the deal:
Coronavirus needs YOU to in order to keep itself alive.
You can have the virus, have NO symptoms and PASS it on to others.
So, What's A "Host"?
Your Immune System
MOST viruses and bacteria.
Let's make it plain.
Your immune system is kind of like Muhammed Ali.
These "fights" your immune system engage in aren't something you'd see with your eyes
because you'd need a microscope to see these tiny cells at work.
But know, when the cells in your immune system suspect anything in your body that does not belong there.
