Episode 77 Small batch
"History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes"
With our incessant meetings, nonstop planning, and fear of the unknown during this COVID pandemic, many feel that we are improvising on the spot. When in reality we are using the past to help us deal with the present. We look to the 1918 Influenza pandemic for guidance in public health measures and future predictions. One such epidemic that can provide us with further guidance is the Ebola Virus (EBV) Epidemic. We are fortunate to highlight a manuscript with the lead author, Dr. Andreia Alexander, in our small batch episode that reflects on paramedics' experiences in receiving PUI for the EBV arriving in the United States.
Dr. Andreia Alexander MD, PhD, MPH
So take a listen to this small batch and remember "History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes." We hope you enjoy this small-batch episode and remember to look out for each other and please be safe. We are all in this together.
As always THANK YOU for listening!
