On the Frontlines of the COVID-19 Pandemic: Insights from Our Community’s Healthcare Physicians
Date Published: April 11, 2020
With new information on COVID-19 being released every day, what is important for us to know as concerned citizens? How can we best protect ourselves, our families, and our communities?
Take some time to listen on this insightful conversation with CKA Executive Director Abraham Kim as he addresses these critical questions and more with two top global medical experts on infectious diseases:
- Dr. Sanghyun Alex Kim, Regional KAMA President of NY and Colorectal Surgery Specialist at Mt. Sinai Hospital
- Dr. Christopher Kwon, Regional KAMA President of Texas and Emergency Medicine Physician, and Founding Partner and Board Member of Physicians Premier ER
This discussion dives into a number of important issues in the medical field. Our experts discuss how a shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and COVID-19 Test Kits have affected local hospitals and clinics, as well as what the current situation is like in NYC and Texas. How the symptoms of COVID-19 patients differ from that of SARS, MERS, and influenza. Most importantly, the speakers underscore the importance of flattening the curve and the high stakes of ignoring social distancing.
