VIDEO: Take COVID-19 Seriously

No Comments

EPM contributor Seth Truger and some of the physicians and medical experts at Northwestern Medicine recorded a video on the COVID-19 pandemic encouraging people to take the virus seriously.

Using selfie video messages filmed in their workplaces – in many cases between breaks from helping patients — the experts urged everyone to stay home if they are feeling sick so as to not overwhelm the hospitals and health care workers. They strongly encouraged those who don’t think they’re at risk for contracting the virus to “step up,” “be responsible” and stop socializing in groups to contain the virus and flatten the curve of contamination.
