Smart Talk Tuesday: COVID-19 questions answered

It has been almost four months since the COVID-19 pandemic began in the U.S. Since the end of February, 2.3 million people have tested positive for the virus with 122,000 dying from it. In Pennsylvania, more than 82,000 have contracted the virus and 6,400 have died.

We have learned much about COVID-19 over the past four months including about symptoms, how the virus is spread and who is at risk. However, many people still have questions about the virus, how to avoid exposure and what to do if you experience symptoms.

Dr. Gerald Maloney, DO, is the Chief Medical Officer for Geisinger Hospitals and he joins us on Tuesday’s Smart Talk to answer questions about COVID-19 and stopping the spread.

Dr. Maloney was on Smart Talk in early April to answer questions about the virus. His appearance Tuesday will be a good indicator of how much has changed and what has been learned about the coronavirus.
