How do we protect ourselves from COVID-19?
UPDATE: In the time since this podcast was released, the World Health Organization has declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, and the federal government has updated their travel warnings.
The deluge of media coverage about COVID-19 can be confusing, especially as the situation changes day-to-day. Right now, the risk in Canada remains low, but the number of people infected will continue to rise. Many people reached out to us with specific questions about COVID-19. This week, Dr. Allison McGeer, medical microbiologist and infectious disease specialist at Sinai Health System in Toronto, joins host Dr. Brian Goldman with the most current information about what measures we should take to protect ourselves from emerging infections like COVID-19.
Because of the high demand for information on this topic, this week's episode of The Dose is longer than usual.
