Examples of frequent in a Sentence

  1. Alessio Fasano:

    CORONAVIRUS IN THE US : STATE-BY-STATE BREAKDOWN The researchers found although children are less likely to get severely ill with the virus, they can easily spread it to vulnerable adults in their lives, especially if theyre in school. Roberta DeBiasi added that, based on other respiratory illnesses, children are known spreaders. The researchers also studied a rare infection that can result in heart problems fromthe childs immune response to the virus. This is a severe complication as a result of the immune response to COVID-19 infection, and the number of these patients is growing, and, as in adults with these very serious systemic complications, the heart seems to be the favorite organ targeted by post-COVID-19 immune response. She said the immune response complication should factor into vaccine production strategy. The researchers recommend wearing masks, social distancing, hand washing, a combination of in-person and remote learning and frequent testing if returning to school in the fall.

  2. Jonar Nader:

    Those who construct loyalty programs through frequent-flyer points and the like, are merely trying to trap the customer. Loyalty must come naturally, not via points and schemes. If your customers are loyal to you as a result of such programs, then surely you realize that they are not loyal. Such schemes are tangible, and tangible things are susceptible to the law of annihilation. Anything that you do, can be matched by your competitor.

  5. Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.:
