KMBC: Kansas City hospitals say they're well equipped for potential second wave of COVID-19

June 16, 2020

Dr. Marc Larsen, Emergency Physician and Saint Luke's Incident Command Operations Chair for COVID-19, talks to Kelly Eckerman about a possible second wave and how Saint Luke's is prepared. 

"It's not over and we can still see a resurgence that the measures that we put in place in the area were effective but if we start to loosen up too fast, then we have the potential to see this virus come roaring back," said Larsen.
