Updated March 30, 2020

Thomas A. Russo, MD, professor of medicine and chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases, was interviewed about the potential impact COVID-19 could have on Western New York. “A common question I’m getting is, ‘I want to have a small group gathering for Easter, can I do it safely?’ ” Russo said. “The answer is no, you can’t do so with 100 percent certainty. There’s the whole asymptomatic issue, which makes it impossible to be sure that you are not infected.”
