With so much information circulating about COVID-19 (coronavirus), it’s important to understand the science behind the crisis. Orthus Health teamed up with Dr. Anthony Hilger to host a special edition two-part podcast. Dr. Hilger is a retired professor from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who taught diagnostic microbiology, immunology, and clinical laboratory science for 30 years.

Part One:

During part one of this podcast, Dr. Hilger covers the following topics on viruses:

  • What they are
  • How they differ from bacteria
  • How they work
  • Vaccines

He also discusses COVID-19 and how it is similar and different to other viruses.

Part Two:

During part two of this podcast, Dr. Hilger specifically discusses the following topics on COVID-19:

  • How it spreads
  • Prevention tactics
  • Symptoms you can expect
  • Susceptible populations
