Prevention has focused to date on mask wearing, social distancing, and the development of vaccines. Novel mitigation strategies, however, are needed to combat the pandemic optimally.<br />There was an epidemic of inactivity in 2020 partially because of government recommendations to stay indoors and the mandated closure of gyms. Vitamin D deficiency is also a common worldwide problem, especially for persons of color. These two issues are contributing to the severity of the pandemic and should be addressed.</p> Allan Mishra William D Murrell Copyright (c) 2021 Biologic Orthopedics Journal 2021-01-30 2021-01-30 3 1 e1 e4 10.22374/boj.v3i1.15 Orthobiologics: Filling the Gaps in Current Orthopaedic Surgical Treatment https://biologicortho.com/index.php/BiologicOrtho/article/view/23 <p>N/A</p> William D Murrell Copyright (c) 2021 Biologic Orthopedics Journal 2021-04-06 2021-04-06 3 1 e5 e8 10.22374/boj.v3i1.23
