Dr. Poland will also discuss the latest information on clinical trials and vaccine research to fight the disease outbreak.

A novel coronavirus is a new strain that has not been seen before in humans. SARS-Co-V-2 is a novel virus, causing the disease COVID-19. Because COVID-19 is a new disease, much is still being learned about how it spreads and the severity of illness it causes.
