Doctors test a hospital staffer Tuesday for coronavirus, in a triage tent that's been set up outside the E.R. at St. Barnabas hospital in the Bronx. Hospital workers are at higher risk of getting COVID-19, and public health experts fear a staffing shortage in the U.S. is coming.

It has been more than a month since the first COVID-19 related death in the U.S. Since that day at the end of February, nearly three thousand people have died and nearly six thousand Pennsylvanians are reportedly infected with the virus.

People still have many questions about the virus, how to avoid exposure and what to do if you experience symptoms.

Dr. Gerald Maloney, DO, is the Chief Medical Officer for Geisinger hospitals and he joins Thursday’s Smart Talk to answer questions about COVID-19 and stopping the spread.
