The health news this past week has been dominated by the COVID-19 vaccines that have been developed. This is unfortunately contrasted with the fact that there are ever-increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases across the country. Even with all the precautions that everyone is taking, people are still contracting this virus. As an Emergency Physician, I am often asked by patients how they contracted COVID-19, even though they are taking all the necessary steps to protect themselves. Here are 5 common ways that you may have contracted COVID-19. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. 1 Asymptomatic Carrier Unlike most common viruses, COVID-19 has created a very large amount of symptomatic carriers. These individuals are actively infected with the virus, but they are not showing any symptoms. Even though fevers, chills, cough, or even loss of sense of smell is common, there are many people that have no symptoms. It is difficult to have someone quarantine when they are showing no outward signs of COVID-19 infection. The possibility of being around a person who is infected but not showing any signs of infection is one of the main factors behind the recommendations to minimize contact with anyone that does not live in your house. 2 Symptomatic Negative Test Many patients have been exhibiting signs of upper respiratory viruses but when they are tested for COVID-19, the result is negative. This phenomenon is well known to anyone who works within the Emergency Department. Many tests, such as flu, or COVID-19, have to be collected adequately within a certain amount of time of the onset of symptoms in order to be accurate. Many patients are presenting to the ED with symptoms, found to have a negative swab, and many return to normal activities. In reality, there is a possibility that their symptoms are going to progress or continue and they are possible COVID-19 positive. If you have any symptoms of an upper respiratory virus, it is important to quarantine until you are better. 3 Breaking Quarantine Early A diagnosis of COVID-19 has been accompanied by a recommendation to be quarantined for almost two weeks. Although the specifics for the recommended time to quarantine have been changing throughout this pandemic, it is at least 10 days and 48 hours without any symptoms. It can be difficult for patients to be quarantined for such a duration of time, especially since many patients show few if any symptoms. If a patient has been diagnosed with COVID-19 but starts to feel better they may still be infected, however, and it is very possible that they are transmitting COVID-19 to others. 4 Viral Particles As any member of the healthcare community can attest, there has been a very concerning finding that COVID-19 is passed through droplets that may stay suspended in the air. It is the main reason that physicians, and other health care workers are so commonly pictured with the n95 masks when working in the hospital. This is important for anyone if you are within a certain distance of other individuals. If someone coughs and the air is stagnant, it is possible that you can come into contact with the viral particle and thereby become infected yourself. 5 One Degree of Separation Many people are observing strict precautions to limit COVID-19 transmission. As the hospital systems have observed in these few weeks after holidays, you cannot control the other people around you. There are countless patients currently suffering from COVID-19 that have been fastidious with their health and social distancing. Their family members, however, may not have been as strict with limiting interactions with people. Unless you can control where you and your family members have been, and how appropriate everyone has been with social distancing guidelines, this can certainly increase your risk of COVID-19 transmission.There are still many ways that you may contract COVID-19, mostly due to lack of mask-wearing and being around other people. If you have contracted COVID-19 but cannot trace your infection to direct contact with an actively sick person, there are certainly other ways you may have become sick. With mask-wearing and vaccinations, this pandemic may be closer than ever to being over. And to get through this pandemic at your healthiest, don't miss these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

“SNL” is back, now in its 46th season. The most recent new episode, which aired on December 19, was hosted by “Wonder Woman 1984” star Kristen Wiig, with Dua Lipa as the musical guest. That morning, Jim Carrey surprised everyone by announcing he was done playing Joe Biden, and the cold open sketch that night revealed a new Biden: cast member Alex Moffat. Carrey might not be the only recurring big name to be done with “SNL.” Since Donald Trump lost the election, Alec Baldwin very well might be done playing Trump. He hasn’t appeared since the episode immediately after the election — he held up a little “Thank you” sign at the end of it — and “SNL” won’t return with new episodes until after Biden is inaugurated. While it wouldn’t be surprising if they do one more Trump cold open to check in on him after he gets kicked out of the White House, there’s certainly a distinct possibility that we will never see Baldwin’s Trump impersonation ever again. Also Read: 'SNL': Kate McKinnon as Dr. Fauci Explains the Government's Vaccine Plan (Video) This week, on Saturday, Jan. 16, there WILL NOT be a new episode of “SNL.” There won’t be any new episodes until late January — NBC hasn’t set a date for the return yet, but it’ll be after Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20. They typically start back up on the final weekend in January — which would place the next episode on Jan. 30. But the pandemic, which is currently at its height in America, could be a complicating factor. On normal off-weeks, NBC would air two reruns on Saturday night. But as was the case last week, the NFL playoffs are altering the schedule. NBC will carry the game between the Buffalo Bills and the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday night, with a timeslot that runs until 11:30 ET on Saturday night. The schedule is currently set with a rerun of Jason Bateman’s episode from the current season, but it’s certainly possible the game will run over its time slot. You can be pretty sure this season of “SNL” be very political for the full stretch. While it’s no longer an election year, somehow the tense political situation in the U.S. has managed to ramp up from the fever pitch it was at in 2020, thanks to the mob of terrorists who invaded the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. “SNL” will, as it always does, follow the discourse. Also Read: 'SNL': Cecily Strong Brings Giuliani's Drunk Fraud Witness to Fart-Filled Cold Open (Video) The premiere episode came out hard with political commentary, with the debate cold open, a very political monologue from Chris Rock, and a stunned discussion of Trump’s COVID-19 infection from Michael Che on Weekend Update. And “SNL” hasn’t slowed down with its political content, with each cold open in season 46 being about the election, its aftermath or, as we saw in the last episode, the COVID-19 vaccine. After that debate sketch in the premiere, we got two other debate sketches, one for the VP candidates and one other for the presidential candidates, as well as one about the dueling town halls from when Trump was infected with COVID-19 and refused to submit to safety measures. The show’s writers were obviously pleased with the election results as well — the cold open sketch in the episode after Election Day was certainly celebratory. That sketch also parodied the episode after the 2016 election in which Kate McKinnon took the stage as Hillary Clinton and played piano while singing “Hallelujah” — this time, Baldwin, as Trump, performed a mournful version of “Macho Man.” Also Read: 'SNL' Newsmax Sports Parody Perfectly Sums Up Pro-Trump Conspiracy Logic (Video) “SNL” tried to drift away from that political focus during season 44, but certainly didn’t shy away from politics in season 45 — a season in which the actual Elizabeth Warren popped up to play herself in a sketch. The renewed focus on politics in season 45 was not just about mocking Trump, but also lampooning the circus that was the run up to the Democratic primaries. Not that the sketch show has in any way shied away from mocking Trump. The impeachment has certainly been a common topic for cold open sketches this season. There was the one where Baldwin’s Trump went through his contacts list trying to find a fixer who could make the impeachment stop, ending with a call to Liev Schreiber playing himself — Trump thought his character Ray Donovan, a fixer on the eponymous Showtime series, was actually a real person. There was also that one where “SNL” sent up the impeachment hearings by doing a “Days of Our Lives” parody that starred Jon Hamm. As for the madness with the Democratic primary, we had numerous big cameos in the debate sketches in season 45. The show tried out multiple different Joe Bidens last year, with Woody Harrelson taking up the role a couple times and Jason Sudeikis giving it a shot as well. They also brought in many other celebs to play other candidates in the Dem primary, including Lin-Manuel Miranda as Julian Castro, Larry David as Bernie Sanders, Rachel Dratch as Amy Klobuchar, Fred Armisen as Michael Bloomberg, and Will Ferrell as Tom Steyer. Maya Rudolph also played Kamala Harris a few times, and it was only natural that they’d keep her around for season 46. That’s a lot of cameos, and “SNL” actually managed to jam nearly all of those folks into a single sketch — a 12-minute debate parody from a late November episode. Miranda did not appear in that one, but he had previously popped up as Castro in October in a parody of the Democrats’ LGBTQ town hall that was moderated by Billy Porter in character as himself.

"Not to frighten people, Meg, but…." That's an ominous way to start a sentence, but it's the only way Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease doctor, can talk these days, given the toll the coronavirus has taken on humanity. More than 380,000 Americans have died, with many more deaths to come, a "9/11" every day. Rather than feel defeated, Dr. Fauci hopes you'll instead help defeat COVID-19. "Now's not the time to say, 'I'm just so tired'—that would only make matters worse," said Fauci in a CNBC Healthy Returns Livestream, speaking with CNBC's Senior Health and Science Reporter Meg Tirrell. Read on to hear the four things he recommends, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. 1 Dr. Fauci Recommends "Less Congregating" Dr. Fauci connects holiday get-togethers with the rise in cases and deaths, and doesn't want to see that happen again. "You can see what I have referred to as a surge upon a surge," he said, "because if you look at the inflection of the curve of things that they've gone up over the last few weeks, as we got into the cold weather, people stayed indoors, they congregated indoors sometimes without masks, the inflection of the curve was like this. It then," he shot his hand straight up, "went like that." And it keeps going up every day. "We really need to pull back a little bit, and maybe not do the things that otherwise at this part of the season of the year would be considered normal and do things to a lesser extent." 2 Dr. Fauci Recommends "Less Social Interaction" "I would like to see a dramatic diminution of the personal interaction we see in restaurants and in bars. Whatever it takes to do that, that's what I would like to see," Fauci said. But not during the CNBC interview. No, he said that back in March! And the advice still applies now—avoid socializing with people you're not sheltering with.RELATED: COVID Symptoms Usually Appear in This Order, Study Finds 3 Dr. Fauci Recommends "Less Travel" You could catch—or give someone else—COVID in the airport parking lot. Or in line checking your bag. Or in the security line. Or on the plane. Or in the baggage line at your destination. Or when greeting Mom at the airport. Or by stopping for gas on the way home. Travelling just opens you up to more social interaction. "Before you start making plans that you would have to cancel, think seriously," Fauci has said recently. "So just think about it, that we really need to say we are in an extraordinarily unique time, I mean, it is unprecedented in the last hundred and two years," he continued. He urges you to remember the more than 380,000 dead, and others debilitated by Post-COVID Syndrome. "Here's what we're going through — it's real. The numbers don't lie." 4 Dr. Fauci Says to Never Forget the Fundamentals We can curb COVID, says Fauci, if we all commit to doing this:Universal wearing of masksMaintaining physical distanceAvoiding congregate settings or crowdsDoing more outdoors, as opposed to indoorsWashing hands frequentlyThese "simple but effective" measures really do help. 5 Dr. Fauci Knows This is Hard But Wants to Save Lives (and Hopes You Do, Too!) "We all know how difficult that is because we've been under this situation of COVID fatigue, as we call it, everyone is fatigued about this. We've been going through this now for almost a year," Fauci said on CNBC. But now is the exact wrong time to give up. Follow his fundamentals and help end this surge, no matter where you live—wear a face mask, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene and to protect your life and the lives of others, and don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

Ramen is one of those comfort foods that we love to turn to when we're short on time but want a light, warm dinner in a hurry.

Those instant noodles can have up to 1,750mg of sodium in one pack, which is nearly the entirety of the daily recommended sodium intake. It's for that reason that so many of us have decided to leave the instant ramen packets on the shelves at the grocery store and opt for something healthier.Until now.Immi is a brand-new startup that's shaking up the soup game with a healthy instant ramen. The high-protein, low-carb instant ramen comes in three flavor varieties, but if you can't decide, you can also get a sampler pack. Your options are Tom Yum "Shrimp," Black Garlic "Chicken," and Spicy "Beef," and yes, they're plant-based as well.Each pack of Immi instant ramen has a total of 9g net carbs, 31g protein, and 850mg sodium. Compared to your standard packs of instant ramen, these come in at a much healthier level. (Speaking of upgrading your everyday shopping list, make sure to avoid buying these items on our list of the 100 Unhealthiest Foods on the Planet.) View this post on Instagram A post shared by immi (@immieats)Immi founders Kevin Lee and Kevin Chanthasiriphan grew up in Taiwan and Thailand and wrote on the company's website that they wanted to create a healthier version of ramen because they not only love ramen but wanted to give their families a healthy alternative to a staple comfort food. The healthy instant ramen is primarily made with pumpkin seed protein, as well as a variety of other plant-based ingredients. Even better: This ramen is keto-friendly.Right now, these instant ramen packs are only available to shop online, but perhaps as more people catch on to the possibility of enjoying lower-sodium ramen, the packs may end up in your favorite grocery store.
