Cedar Rapids Dr. Answers Coronavirus Questions [LISTEN]
How do I contract coronavirus? Why aren't there enough tests? What are the symptoms that I need to worry about? Those were just some of the questions that we got to ask Dr. Curtis Arnold. Dr. Arnold is the Chief Medical Officer with Unitypoint Health-St. Lukes in Cedar Rapids.
With all the uncertainty going around, it's hard to know what to believe. That's why we knew we needed to have a medical professional on the air to talk about coronavirus. We've had many listeners express how scared they are of the virus. Even though there are no confirmed cases in Linn County, there are over 20 in Johnson County and it is also confirmed to be community spread.
As you listen to Dr. Arnold, please remember to wash your hands. Stay away from crowds larger than 10 people. Self distance and self isolate yourself. We're all in this together and if we work together, we'll all be healthy on the other side.
