FOAMcast - An Emergency Medicine Podcast

We interrupt our normal FOAMcast episodes to bring you updates from COVID-19. *Our understanding of COVID-19 is rapidly developing and this may be out of date in days/weeks. So, check back for updates/fact check what you hear*

This episode reviews a study published by Wang et al that received incredible press coverage for touting benefits of mask wearing in one's own home....if it started prior to symptoms. This study is problematic, and we discuss why.

Show notes:

Thanks for listening,
Lauren Westafer and Jeremy Faust
