The title of the article implies that you could get Covid every 4 weeks from now on.  That's not what the article says.  What it says is that the new strain, Omicron BA.5 has shown a strong ability to overcome people who were previously vaccinated or even had the earlier strain of Omicron BA2.  But NOT that you will keep getting Omicron BA.5 infections every month from here on out.

It's a bad strain, definitely.  It's almost like a new disease again, in the sense that it is going to cut through a huge swath of our population.  But the prior immunity from vaccines and/or prior infections appears to weaken the effects of the BA.5 strain, so yes, you are going to get sick, but no, you probably aren't going to go the hospital or die from it.
