Doctor to debunk COVID myths
CoxHealth Facebook Live event set for 2 p.m. Wednesday
Misinformation and confusion are circulating in local communities, along with COVID-19 (coronavirus).
On Wednesday, Dr. Robin Trotman, medical director of Infection Prevention at CoxHealth, will debunk myths and dispel rumors about coronavirus and COVID-19 during a Facebook Live event.
In addition to information about testing technology and how to interpret results, some topics include:
• Can I get carbon dioxide poisoning from wearing a mask?
• Can shoes spread COVID-19?
• Is COVID-19 the same as the flu?
• What’s the true evidence for the treatments we have available today?
The session begins at 2 p.m. on CoxHealth’s Facebook page.
Members of the public (and news media) are encouraged to send questions via Facebook Messenger and some will be answered by Dr. Trotman.
