WLVR’s Community Correspondent Genesis Ortega spoke with Lehigh Valley Health Network doctor Marcelo Gareca for a glimpse into what testing looks like now eight months into the pandemic.
Coronavirus is hitting its highest numbers this month – more so than in the spring. And while there are now record numbers of cases in Pennsylvania, access to testing is much different now than at the beginning of the pandemic.
WLVR Community Correspondent Genesis Ortega spoke about the higher risk group disparities with Lehigh Valley Health Network Doctor, Orlando Penaloza.
The Lehigh Valley Health Network’s street medicine team pays regular visits to homeless encampments. They’re trying to keep vulnerable people from having to seek care in emergency rooms – where they’d risk exposing themselves to COVID-19.
