Mayo Clinic Talks COVID-19 Miniseries Episode 45: There Is No Win-Win
Mayo Clinic Talks Podcast #180
COVID-19 information evolves daily. The views and perspectives shared in these resources are presented based on information available at the time of recording.
Guest: Pritish K. Tosh, M.D.
Novel viruses causing outbreaks tend to do one of three things: disappear completely, become endemic in certain areas, or roll through populations with ongoing transmission until herd immunity is achieved or an effective vaccine is developed. Dr. Pritish Tosh states, “If natural infection doesn’t cause long-lasting protective immunity or the vaccines don’t do the same, this thing could be with us for a long time.” Take a walk through the past 100 years of pandemics as Dr. Tosh draws comparisons and lessons learned.
