COVID-19

March 27, 2020 10:17 PM | Matthew Brothers (Administrator)

We are all aware of the novel coronavirus that causes clinical COVID-19, a clinical respiratory infection with clinical findings anywhere from asymptomatic carrier to respiratory failure and death. As of this morning, based on data from NCDHHS, North Carolina has 636 cases with 2 reported death. There have been 12,910 patients tested. Mecklenburg County has 218 cases with no deaths. Now that there is community spread, the optimal goal is mitigation to limit the spike in infection and illness. This has been called "flatten the curve". 

We are a small group of African American healthcare providers so it will be important for us to work together to help each other and our community. Please be a role model and follow the recommendations of the CDC of social distancing, frequent hand washing, and to stay home if you feel sick (fever, cough, shortness of breath).

If there is anything we can do to support you, your family, or your practice, please do not hesitate to reach out and we will do our best. We are all in this together.
