Dealing with a new and deadly disease, physicians and scientists are both fighting COVID-19 and at the same time, trying to learn all they can about it to better our odds. Still there’s much we don’t know about its behavior and lethality. 

For a closer look at the statistics and what we’re learning about COVID-19’s long-term impacts, NSPR’s Marc Albert reached out to Dr. Miriam Nuno, an associate professor of biostatistics with a joint appointment in the department of surgery at UC Davis.
