Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus that had not been previously identified in humans. The virus causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever and in more severe cases, pneumonia. Covid-19 is spreading through the world at a seemingly uncontrollable pace, the World Health Organization officially declared it a pandemic and the fight is on to contain the spread of the virus. At this time there is a lot of misinformation and confusion about coronavirus, causing anxiety, mass hysteria, panic buying and more across the world.
In this episode, I interviewed Dr. Ada Adejoro MD, a US-based pediatrician and she answered a few common questions about coronavirus, and shared tips to prevent catching the viral infection.
