“I think our greatest opportunity and at the same time, our greatest threat is human behavior. The most contagious disease known to man is fear and ignorance. The reason I stressed…that this is a pandemic, is not to cause fear or panic, but to cause preparedness…[a] contextually appropriate layering of protection.”
-Greg Poland, MD

Why are we seeing different severity and mortality rates as COVID-19 moves from country to country? Where are we at currently in regard to a COVID-19 vaccine? What does the pathway look like moving forward? Dr. Greg Poland lays out what you need to know about immunity and coronaviruses.
