COVID-19 and influenza are both highly contagious respiratory illnesses that can manifest with similar symptoms. With flu season returning to the U.S., scientists and public health officials are closely monitoring the overlap and bracing for additional strain on healthcare resources. As the two diseases set out on a possible collision course, how should we be assessing risk and adapting responsibly? And what measures can Coloradans take to mitigate the threat of a double whammy?
On Monday, November 9, we'll compare and contrast the flu and COVID-19 with Jon Andrus, MD, Adjunct Professor and Director of Division of Vaccines and Immunization at the Colorado School of Public Health, and Suchitra Rao, MD, Associate Professor, Pediatrics-Pediatric Hospital Medicine at the Colorado School of Medicine. They'll also provide updates on vaccines and share insights to help the public differentiate between the two viruses, then take your questions live during our moderated Q&A.
This free public webinar is presented by the Colorado School of Public Health, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and the Institute for Science & Policy. The session will also be streamed on Facebook.
