Connections: Infectious disease physicians discuss what we should know about COVID-19

Mar 24, 2020

We continue our series of conversations about the impact of the coronavirus. This hour, we’re joined by two local infectious disease doctors who help us gain a better understanding COVID-19. We discuss how it’s transmitted, its symptoms, when to seek care, and questions related to immunity.

We’re also joined by Nazareth College professor Tim Kneeland – an expert in studying pandemics. He discusses what we can learn about COVID-19 by studying the 1918 Spanish Flu.

Our guests:

  • Dr. Ghinwa Dumyati, M.D., professor and physician of infectious diseases at the University of Rochester Medical Center
  • Dr. Anja Bottler, M.D., infections disease physician at Unity Hospital
  • Tim Kneeland, chair of the Department of History and Political Science at Nazareth College
