Mayo Clinic Talks COVID-19 Miniseries Episode 3: Inside an Outbreak – Expert Perspective
Mayo Clinic Talks Podcast #127
COVID-19 information evolves daily. The views and perspectives shared in these resources are presented based on information available at the time of recording.
Colin M. Bucks, M.D. & Amit K. Ghosh, M.D.
“I think that fear can be valuable…we’re at a time when it’s just fine to be fearful if it provokes you to vigilance and discipline…You’re disciplined because you’re afraid, that keeps you sharp, but panic is dangerous. I don’t mind fear, panic is dangerous.” - Colin M. Bucks, M.D.
What is it like in the field during an outbreak? What global response lessons have we learned from SARS and Ebola? Dr. Colin Bucks discusses how access to information accelerates response time in present-day outbreaks and the role public education, infrastructure, disparities, and access to supplies, plays in helping to contain one.
