Podcast News® “The Health Variant” Episode: “The Four That Worked”
SIOUX FALLS, SD – The past year has been a mad race for answers as COVID-19 spread across the world.
Researchers and doctors have gone through their arsenal of drugs and treatments for anything, anything, that would help them fight COVID-19 and help those infected get sicker and die.
The quest led to real breakthroughs, the discovery of new and old drugs and treatments that could save lives. But the hunt also led to conspiracy theories, false leads, and arguments for regular snake oil, which confused the question and, for many, clouded their understanding of what worked or no.
In the 10th episode of the NewsMD podcast “The Health Variant”, host and health correspondent Jeremy Fugleberg interviews Paul Scott, his colleague at NewsMD, who is writing a new series, “The Future of COVID”. As part of the preview of the aftermath of the pandemic, Scott sorted by what worked – and what didn’t – in the fight against COVID-19.
What he found shows how uncertain the future is for nursing homes, but also charts a way forward. Find Scott’s “The Future of COVID” series and his other reports online on NewsMD.
