Coronavirus & the Flu: 101
5 March 2020
We recorded our conversation with Dr. Colin Greene, Director of Lord Fairfax Health District at his office yesterday afternoon for today’s episode.
During our conversation, Dr, Green explained what the Coronavirus is, how it’s transmitted, the odds you may contract it and what those symptoms and treatment would look like. He compared it, in may ways to the flu in terms of prevention methods. We talked about the effectiveness of wearing masks and all the ways you can protect yourself from the both viruses. He also said it’s not too late to get a flu shot – though it will NOT protect you from the Coronavirus; however we did discuss the process for development of vaccinations and anti-viral drugs for it’s treatment.
Dr. Greene answered a few listener submitted questions and gave reliable online resources for more information:
