Cisco and Falzon Hour Broadcast in Politics Call in to speak with the host: Cisco Acosta, Mark Falzon, and guest (845) 262-0988 Join us tonight, August 20th, at 9:00 pm eastern time, with our guest, Dr. Dean Hart is an expert in microbiology and published author on the transmission of viruses and diseases. For 25 years he taught as an Associate Research Scientist and Assistant Professor at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. Dr. Hart studied these subjects as a Postgraduate Research Scientist at the University of California, Berkeley and obtained his first graduate degree in biology with an emphasis in microbiology at Hofstra University As a microbiologist, with more than 30 years of experience and a published author on the transmission of viruses and diseases, I know the most important way to fight this battle is to enlist the public and arm it with accurate information. Transparency and knowledge are the greatest weapons in this war against the COVID-19 virus. Everyone must receive clear messages about social distancing, isolating vulnerable populations, and practicing good hygiene. Implementation of a robust testing protocol is the best short-term fix for this dilemma so that those who require medical care and need to be isolated are identified immediately. Topics for discussion: How do COVID-19 antibody tests differ from diagnostic tests?How much protection do face masks offer? , and the risk of COVID-19 on the Homeless Population.
