FOX4: Doctor shares concerns of public feeling invincible as communities open back up amid COVID-19
Kansas City has done a great job helping flatten the curve when it comes to the novel coronavirus. However, since the pandemic is not over and the virus is still spreading we shouldn't let our guard down just yet. Dr. Chris Perryman, Chief Medical Officer at Saint Luke's Health System, spoke with FOX4 about what people should do as communities start to re-open businesses.
"I don't think we're going to know the exact outcome for that until down the road, in a few weeks we will see what happens," says Dr. Perryman. "What upsets me as we open, is having people individually think they don't have to look out for the rest of the public."
People should continue to use proper sanitary measures when they start going out in public:
- Wash your hands
- Wear a mask
- Keep social distancing - six feet apart
- Don't feel invincible
