SHREVEPORT, La – The spread of coronavirus continues and everyday we seem to hear new guidelines on practicing social distancing in an effort to flatten the curve. And with every passing day, we all continue to have questions. Will social distancing work? Can we actually flatten the curve through social distancing? Is it important to get outside with the family? Why are those with underlying health conditions prone to a more severe case of coronavirus?
We took those questions to Dr. Joseph Sirven with the Mayo Clinic and Dr. Deirdre Barfield with Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Louisiana.
