Webinar Questions and Answers


Additional questions should be sent to:

Q: Any recommendations on triaging in a primary care setting?

Q: Why is this not affecting children? I’ve “heard” that it is because children have higher amounts of surfactant thus giving them a little more protection against the respiratory component... is this true?

Q: Any comments on the experimental treatment such as RDV, Kaletra plus RBV/INf beta, chloroquine?

Q: We have strong reason to believe that we may have seen a case of this in late December and did not recognize it because of the timing. Is there any utility in having this identified? Is there even a way to determine if this patient had the infection 2 months ago?

Q: What is an effective message to convince the public that masks are ineffective and shouldn’t be hoarded?

Q: Are pregnant women more susceptible and have there been any effects to the fetus?

Q: Does it make sense for a pt on immonosuppressants for IBD (working in healthcare setting) to go off of them for fear of being susceptible to COVID-19?

Q: Would you please speak to risks in pregnancy and any unique advisement for this population?
