Earlier today (3.29), Doctor Mike interviewed Dr. Fauci on the topic of COVID-19. It posted on YouTube and the topics include:
*What is the yard stick that we're going to be using to measure when it maybe safe to curtail the social distancing?
*Clinical trials and is there a medication or treatment that’s a front runner at this time?
*Young people seem to be more affected in the United States. Is that true, and if so, why here more than in China?
*The possibility of reinfection with COVID-19
*As a healthcare professional, when is it safe for us to return to work once we've either tested positive for COVID-19 or had a upper respiratory viral illness where we don't know if it was COVID-19?
*Hoarding or customs? What’s the issue with hospitals not getting personal protective gear / N95 masks?
*Is there point of care quick testing coming in the future?
*Any guidance for us as physicians and what role do you think it plays in filling out death certificates?
