Show Notes

In December 2019 a novel coronavirus (now named COVID-19) was identified as responsible for a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, China. As of March 2020, over 50 countries have identified patients who have tested (+) for COVID-19, with over 90,000 identified cases and more than 3000 deaths to date. As the discussion regarding COVID-19 rapidly evolves, it is important for clinicians to prepare locally and to review standards for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. In this podcast, we review the latest information on identification, diagnosis, and treatment of patients with COVID-19 infection.
