ABOUT TODAY’S PODCAST
With new interest on the coronavirus in our community, dozens of questions are on the table.
We have those answers today as Dr. Charles E. McBride, Chief Medical Officer at Harbin Clinic, joined us to discuss:
Feeling bad: The potential symptoms and how the virus is spread. Most of those feeling ill in our area likely are battling a cold or the flu.
Treatment: Don’t go to the ER or immediate care first. Talk to your doctor or healthcare professionals and follow their recommended steps. One way to do us: Use your “patient portal.” At this time, no testing is being done in Floyd County.
Staying safe: If feeling ill, stay home. Give yourself a little “social space.” Wash your hands often, with soapy water or alcohol-based gel hand sanitizer.
He adds that coronavirus is new and different, and that the healthcare community is learning along the way. Best bet, he says, don’t fear but respect the virus.
