In this Healio Rheumatology video perspective, Leonard Calabrese, DO, shares his personal experience with a groundbreaking COVID-19 infection and offers wise advice to clinicians who encounter COVID in both their daily life and practice.

“We as clinicians don’t do a good job taking care of ourselves,” said Calabrese. “I made a number of metacognition mistakes interpreting my own symptoms.”

“What did I learn from this other than that you make bad choices about your own health care?” He added. “First of all, Delta’s breakthrough is real. Second, after examining the data, it is now clear that the breakthrough infection phenotype varies widely among fully vaccinated individuals. UK’s Zoe study, which is tracking symptoms, suggests breakthrough infection is not a flu-like illness like de novo COVID; [instead] it’s runny nose, sore throat, sneezing, headache. “

* For more information on the dangers of breakthrough infection with the Delta variant, see the editorial by Dr. Calabrese in the September issue of Healio Rheumatology.
