COVID 19 Update with Dr. Shankar Kurra


In The Moment … October 19, 2020 Show 923 Hour 2

U.S. cases of COVID-19 have increased by nearly 30 percent from two weeks ago. The rate of new infections in South Dakota continues to eclipse that in other states. Now, as the weather cools and we prepare to spend more time indoors, public health officials are warning we may be entering the "darkest days" of the pandemic yet. 
Dr. Shankar Kurra is vice president of Medical Affairs at Monument Health and joins us today with the latest.
