COVID Corner with Dr. Gary Jacques

"If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." --African Proverb Dear MANNM staff and Los Alamos community, Somewhat amazingly, NM holds at 0 cases of corona virus confirmed as of the end of yesterday Mar 10. 87 out of 87 tests were negative. The MANNM Corona Virus Task Force has been working hard but most importantly working together. Many daily conversations help maintain unity as we prepare. I am also impressed with all the rest of the staff. Many have shared some anxiety but no one has come close to any panic over the situation! Well done. The focus of local and national effort continues to be early identification, isolation and treatment. However, I'm pleased to see a growing discussion about protecting those most vulnerable, which would be the elderly, those that are immuno-suppressed or those with severe chronic illnesses. I spoke with my 86-year-old mother yesterday and she is in good spirits and practicing social distancing which means mostly staying at home. :-) I hope everybody has a great Wednesday. Dr. Jacques
