Medical professionals are hard at work, searching for possible treatments for infected coronavirus patients.

One technique involves the blood of people who’ve recovered from the disease.

There is also the drug hydroxychloroquine, which some physicians are using and the president has talked about it as a possible treatment.

A drug to prevent the virus is at least a year away, leaving many questions surrounding the crisis and how to combat it. 

A scientific panel is reportedly telling the White House the disease can be spread not just by sneezes or coughs, but also just by talking or breathing. 

There have been conflicting accounts over whether everyone should wear a mask. Now, people are being encouraged to cover their faces.

To help Currents News answer some of these questions and debates is Dr. Robert Tiballi of the Catholic Medical Association.
