This podcast has a very simple purpose: explain in easy to understand terms information surrounding coronavirus as the news breaks. It is an attempt to eliminate as much of the noise as possible. Dr. Brian McDonough is a Four Time Emmy Award winner in a twenty year career at Fox and has been honored as National Medical Broadcaster of the Year and Family Physician of The Year. He has three fellowships and has authored three books. Dr. McDonough serves as Chairman of The Department of Family Medicine and is a leader in Healthcare Informatics.
The United States has made virtually every error conceivable preventing the spread of COVID-19 despite early warnings and consistent pleas to act differently. Don't worry about a second wave---it looks like a tsunami is coming
Phillies Clearwater Camp shut down as five players and three staff members test positive. From all reports, the team took all reasonable precautions. The virus spreads easily. If you love yourself and your families please wear masks and respect social distancing. You can listen to people who tell you otherwise, but they won't be around when you and your family are quarantined--or worse. My apologies for being blunt, but we still have a chance to save as many lives as possible.
The focus of Coronavirus Today (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday) is shifting to staying healthy in the continuing COVID-19 environment and will include health issues like heart disease, cancer, diabetes etc. COVID-19 will still be featured prominently.
There are two major issues plaguing the world in 2020: COVID-19 and the fact that we as humans can't grasp the message that we are only as strong as the weakest among us. My fear is that in fifty years we will look back and have only solved one of the issues. I pray I am wrong, but we all can make that fear not become reality.
The votes are in: Coronavirus Today moves to three time per week (Saturday, Tuesday, Thursday)
Season Three starts today with focus on major Covid developments and how to be safe as we open up the country
It is May 29 and we have had a feature every day since February 29. We've all learned a great deal and along the way lost 363,000 people around the world--363,000 people with families, friends and many unfulfilled dreams. Nevertheless, we must move on and stay as safe as possible. The focus today --and each day going forward--is how to do this to the best of our ability while not forgetting that we need to live life and make every minute count. We need to use the time we are given to fulfill our dreams.
Please listen to this one for five minutes! The Spark/Cliff Notes version of Cable News and why CNN and FOX need each other to thrive. Unfortunately, in a pandemic this business model could lead to needless death and disease.
Dr Tony Fauci, Dr. Stephen Hahna(FDA) and Dr. Robert Redfield (CDC) are voluntarily quarantining to protect others from the virus and exposure. Very proud of my physician colleagues who see the big picture.
The Vice-President of The United States spokesperson has tested positive and The President's personal valet has tested positive. What does this mean? What changes need to be made to protect the leaders and those who come in contact with them?
What do I do if I MUST go back into work because my local government leaders or company think it is safe? How do I keep myself and my family safe? The audio version of Coronavirus Today gives an expanded view (five minutes per episode) and can travel with you wherever you are going.
Let's be real---COVID19 is not going anywhere. It is time to protect yourself, those you love and the general public-----especially if you are in a state where leaders have their heads in the sand. Also, billions for hospitals that really need it,
We are making tremendous progress slowing down spread of COVID-19 but the most important progress will only come with rapid and reliable testing, development of treatments and ultimately a vaccine. Until then---don't let numbers fool you.
If COVID19 doesn't care about race, country or creed, why is the African American community in the United States being hit so hard--and what can we do to help those increasingly vulnerable? Also, as NYC tries to flatten the curve the number of deaths surpass 4000 and are now more than the number of deaths on September 11, 2001.
Today: A look at Scientific Research to battle Covid19. Lots of great work at numerous sites. I focus on fascinating research by a company called Celularity trying to harness the body's natural killer cells to fight for those most vulnerable. How these NK cells are collected and preserved is fascinating and it is quite possible this could be a solution now---and in the future.
The question has to be asked: should Presidential rallies and celebrations in state after state be eliminated? What about march Madness? It is time for a national conversation--and it starts right here.
