COVID-19: How to protect yourself and your family — Dr. David Price

Warning! This video was originally posted on March 22, 2020. New research suggests that, contrary to Dr. Price’s advice, we should all be wearing masks, in addition to physical distancing.

Dr. David Price of Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City shares information in a Mar. 22 Zoom call with family and friends on empowering and protecting families during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This video has already been viral for weeks (no pun intended) and some will say I’m late sharing this, but I keep getting asked about it, so here it is.

“new research suggest that we need to be more concerned about aerosol transmission of the virus. In a nutshell, we should all be wearing masks, in addition to physical distancing, hand sanitising and avoiding facial contact.”

When this video was recorded on March 22, 2020 New York had only reported 117 deaths related to COVID-19. As of this writing, the death count is around 7000 and is project to rise to over 13,000 by the end of this month.

I still share Dr. Price’s optimism that we are going to win this battle, but new research suggest that we need to be more concerned about aerosol transmission of the virus. In a nutshell, we should all be wearing masks, in addition to physical distancing, hand sanitising and avoiding facial contact.

Don't Forget...

  • keep your hands clean/sanitised
  • don't touch your face
  • practise social distancing
  • cough or sneeze into your elbow
  • and finally, wear a mask!!!
