It has been over nine months since STAT published reporter Helen Branswell’s first article about a mysterious cluster of pneumonia-like cases in the Chinese city of Wuhan. The cause of those infections was, of course, a new coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. That virus and the disease it causes, Covid-19, have since become the biggest story in the world.
We at STAT recently asked our Twitter followers to submit their questions about Covid-19 with the hashtag #CovidQsSTAT. In this video, Helen responds to some of the questions we received about the risk of reinfection, vaccine efficacy, and more.
