A Year Ago Today: Treating the First Coronavirus Patient in the US

Dr. George Diaz is an infectious disease specialist with Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, WA. He treated the very first confirmed coronavirus patient in the United States, isolating him with the hospital's strictest Ebola precautions and using a robot for examinations.  Exactly a year later, he joins KIRO Radio's Dave Ross and reporter Aaron Granillo on the COVID-19: Seattle podcast to reflect on those earliest days of the pandemic, and make predictions for the year ahead.
