Dr. Travis and Dr. Spellberg, who is the Chief Medical Officer at the Los Angeles County-University of Southern California (LAC+USC) Medical Center, focus their discussion on possible solutions on how to deal with the pandemic they warn against wild theories and outlandish predictions concerning the virus, which has killed thousands around the globe.
"Testing was so delayed in this country... it hurts my heart that people still can't get a test in many areas of the country. I just wish we could change that," Dr. Travis says, noting that uncertainty about our jobs, schools, access to hospital beds and the economy is weighing heavily on all of us. Despite our fears, he feels if "collective action" is taken "we can stem the tide" with this pandemic. He believes with 2 weeks of social distancing, practice best preventive methods, and ramped up testing will drastically help decrease the spread of the virus.
Dr. Spellberg shares Dr. Travis' reserved optimism about the coronavirus, saying, "The world is not ending. It is not a time for panic... we can outsmart this virus," adding there is still a great deal to learn about COVID-19 and we must all remain cautious and respectful of the dangers it poses.
The infectious disease specialist also stresses that it is not too late to stop this virus. He says the proper response to the virus is "neither panic nor blase" stressing, "The virus does not magically transmit, it must spread by droplets to other people's mucus membranes. If we can prevent us from getting droplets on us, it cannot transmit to us."
Hear more from Dr. Travis and Dr. Spellberg on what solutions lie ahead in the fight against the virus and what lessons we can collectively learn from the pandemic.
The Travis Stork podcast is produced by Stage 29, which also produces The Doctors.
