COVID-19 Cases Are Rising Again. What’s Going On?

COVID-19 is again dominating the headlines and challenging the healthcare system, with a sharp increase in new infections. Nearly 20 percent of these new U.S. cases are in the state of Florida. What are the factors behind the numbers and what can be done to reverse this trend? 

Host, Jonathan Fialkow, M.D. posed those questions to a panel of experts from Baptist Health hospitals to get to the facts behind the latest COVID-19 wave.

 The panelists were: 
·   Samer Fahmy, M.D., chief medical officer at Boca Raton Regional Hospital, 
·   Zulma Berrios, M.D., chief medical officer at West Kendall Baptist Hospital,
·   Yvonne Johnson, M.D., chief medical officer at South Miami Hospital
