Hospitals and healthcare workers struggle to keep up with the demand as the new coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads across the U.S. and throughout the world.
Hundreds of millions of people are social distancing, quarantining, and sheltering in place to slow down the spread of the virus. The stock market is plunging and the global economy is heading into a recession because of the virus and because of the measures we are enforcing to stop it. Schools are closed. Restaurants, bars, and gyms are closed in many areas of the country. Major sports events, concerts and shows have been cancelled. Perhaps our greatest asset in this fight against the new coronavirus-- healthcare workers-- are becoming infected on the front lines. In the midst of this crisis, Doctor Devi explains what you need to know in a concise and easy-to-understand Question and Answer format.
Dr. Devi Nampiaparampil, a Harvard-trained doctor and a professor at NYU School of Medicine, breaks down the issues in this clear and compassionate handbook. What makes this virus so dangerous? How can I protect myself and my family? How did this happen?
If you haven't watched the news, if you aren't keeping up with social media, if you're not sure if you should be concerned… it's okay. This book will quickly bring you up to speed on the virus, what's happening with treatment and prevention, the history of the virus, and the public's biggest concerns.
