Weill Cornell neurologist and former vice-president of the American Association for Neurological Surgeons, Dr. Andrew Kolodny, spoke with CBC News about how people are coping and how they’re coping with the pandemic.
“There’s a lot of anxiety and fear in this country.
This is an emergency, a very real one.
And we’re really, really concerned,” he said.
“It’s a new era.
And I think that’s the way we’re going to deal with this.””
The real question is how much do we do to prevent this,” he continued.
“If we just sit back and wait, this could come back.
And if we get rid of it, we’re just putting people in another crisis.”
He said that while the pandemics are scary, we should be proactive about prevention and that we should focus on what we can do to make our lives easier, and to make the country safer for all.
“If we don’t, there will be more people who get exposed to it,” he told CBC News.
