We discuss major developments this week including new research in the news reporting viral mutations and the implications for immunity and vaccine development, what to expect when schools reopen, reports revealing the significant inflammatory syndrome Kawasaki disease associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection, and discuss the importance of well child care during this time including routine immunizations.
