But how can we avoid getting and spreading its potentially deadly disease, COVID-19, when we're buying groceries, picking up takeout, or petting the neighbor dog? Can the novel coronavirus survive on fur? Can it live longer on paper or plastic? When can we finally visit grandma again?
Milfred and Hands pose the real-life questions that you want answers to. They interview Dr. Patrick Remington, an expert at UW-Madison on how disease spreads and is prevented. Remington, who worked as an investigator of epidemics for the Centers for Disease Control, is our special guest on this week's episode as he shelters at home while continuing to teach hundreds of UW-Madison medical students online.
