COVID Q & A: Brazilian Variant Present In Douglas County
The hospital system in far-away Brazil is nearly overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients. A variant of the disease first found in Brazil appears to be more contagious than previous versions.
And one case with that variant has already been found in Oregon, in Douglas County. Dr. Jim Shames is the Medical Director at Jackson County Health and Human Services. He visits once a week to catch us up on COVID-19 issues and current concerns.
This week we include his Douglas County counterpart, Dr. Bob Dannenhoffer. Ask your question at 800-838-3760 or JX@jeffnet.org.
