  On this edition of Your Call, we’ll take your questions about the coronavirus with an epidemiologist and medical expert.

More than 3,000 people in the US have died from COVID-19, according to the latest data from Johns Hopkins. We still have no idea where clusters are located because testing remains very low in the US. We’ll discuss the importance of testing, shelter in place policies, and what we now know about how this fatal virus affects people of all ages.

Guests: 

Dr. Dena Grayson, medical doctor and researcher who spent years developing a medical treatment for Ebola

Arthur Reingold, Division Head of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health
