Dr. John Mattison (Part 2): Hope is NOT a plan for COVID-19 recovery

June 19, 2020

In Part 2 with Dr. John Mattison, he shares his belief that data plays a significant role in healthcare – a role that is not being optimized in the midst of COVID-19. “There isn’t a clear, simple answer because we don’t have clear, simple data inputs to do the models and make the decisions.” In this episode, Dr. Mattison talks specifically about the unknown impact of the growing asymptomatic population, the under-discussed symptoms of this coronavirus, serologic testing vs PCR, the need to better understand viral loads, and the unknown long-term implications of having COVID-19.
