Senator Frist releasing Coronavirus podcast episodes - including CDC interview


 

On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, MD is releasing two special A Second Opinion podcast episodes on the 2019 novel coronavirus.

In Tuesday's episode, Senator Frist will share his experience from 2003 when he was on the ground in China during the SARS outbreak (another strain of coronavirus), and will be answering questions on the 2019 novel coronavirus's transmissibility, lethality, and origin.

On Wednesday, he's sitting down with Dr. Jay Butler, Deputy Director for Infectious Diseases with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Butler has had extensive experience with serious global outbreaks. He directed CDC's 2009 H1N1 pandemic vaccine task force, which achieved emergency vaccination of more than 80 million Americans. Dr Butler's update includes what the public needs to know about this new strain of coronavirus, how it's behaving differently from other strains, and where we are in developing a vaccine.
