COVID-19 Miniseries Episode 3: Inside an Outbreak – Expert Perspective
Guest: Colin M. Bucks, M.D.
Host: Amit K. Ghosh, M.D.
“I think that fear can be valuable…we’re at a time when it’s just fine to be fearful if it provokes you to vigilance and discipline…You’re disciplined because you’re afraid, that keeps you sharp, but panic is dangerous. I don’t mind fear, panic is dangerous.” – Colin M. Bucks, M.D.
What is it like in the field during an outbreak? What global response lessons have we learned from SARS and Ebola? Dr. Colin Bucks discusses how access to information accelerates response time in present day outbreaks and the role public education, infrastructure, disparities, and access to supplies, plays in helping to contain one.
