Information about COVID-19 infection updates daily, even hourly at times. Since Monday, March 23rd when I chatted with my friend and colleague, Dr. Asim Jani who is an infectious disease specialist and epidemiologist with Orlando Health System, the numbers of new coronavirus cases and deaths has risen from 48K+ and 460+, respectively to 86K+ and 1K+, respectively. This recent data over 4 days places the U. S. in the lead for worldwide number of confirmed cases. What strikes me most about this interview is Dr Jani’s thoughts on how we got here, what we did wrong and what we need to do now.
You also don’t want to miss his review of what we currently know about COVID-19 and his expert advice on how to manage the uncertain days ahead.
The episode covers:
- How the virus is spread
- How to protect yourself and your family
- Symptoms of the infection
- What to do if you have symptoms
- Social distancing vs. quarantine vs home isolation
- Flattening the curve
- Myths and misinformation
- Treatments and a vaccine
- Surviving social distancing at home with the kids
Thanks, Dr. Asim Jani!
