What we have learned about the coronavirus
What has the Capital Region medical community learned about the coronavirus and how might that knowledge help end this pandemic? “What’s new for all of us is that we are learning about this virus every day. Our team is quite thorough and working together to provide the best care. You may see things on the news about how hospitals were overwhelmed, that is not the case in Albany.
