Live forum about coronavirus on KET Tuesday night

With the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus around the world, the United States declared a public health emergency at the end of January, and the number of confirmed cases in the U.S. grew significantly in the first week of March.

To help address this health risk, Dr. Wayne Tuckson of KET’s “Kentucky Health” will host a special live forum on the network Tuesday, March 10, at 9 p.m ET. “Trusted health experts will share the latest information about the coronavirus, answer viewers’ questions, and discuss how the state and healthcare providers have been preparing,” a KET news release says. The panel will include physicians and other professionals:

• Steven Stack, commissioner of the Kentucky Department for Public Health
• Lori Caloia, medical director of the Louisville Department of Public Health and Wellness
• Derek Forster, medical director for infection and prevention control at UK HealthCare
• Staff from the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department
