Chris will walk you thru the agencies that are involved in developing policies, programs of prevention and guidelines. She will also discuss the medications that maybe useful in fighting this virus, and how each drug must go thru protocols, research and evaluation before they can be approved. Also covered will be testing, issues with testing, antibody testing verses testing for virus, some recent statistics, key safety protocols, and what to do to protect yourself!
