Oregon front-line doctor treating COVID-19 patients: what we know now about how deadly COVID-19 is, updated mask wearing, and more - 11/18/20

Dr. David Hotchkin, a Pulmonologist and Critical Care physician at The Oregon Clinic, has been treating critical COVID-19 patients since the pandemic in Oregon began. Now, nine months in, talk with him today about:

- Just how deadly COVID-19 is compared to the flu (new study) 

- The shift they are seeing to younger patients being hospitalized

- Updated mask advice (hint: you should be wearing your mask outside, too)

- What is considered an "underlying health condition" in terms of COVID-19 

- What plans will and won't work for the upcoming holidays


Dr. Hotchkin is available for a few virtual interviews Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. Please contact me to coordinate a time.
