We kick off the fall series of UCSF Covid Medical Grand Rounds with a wide-ranging program on epidemiology and therapeutics. George Rutherford will discuss the current state of the pandemic, including the falling infection rates in the South and West, and the growing rates in the Midwest, schools, and universities. Monica Gandhi will discuss why Covid mortality rates seem to be falling, including the possibility (as discussed in her recent New England Journal of Medicine paper that mask wearing leads to less severe infections). Finally, Aashish Manglik will describe the discovery made by him and his UCSF colleagues that inhalable molecules (“AeroNabs”) can block the receptors that allow the coronavirus to gain entry to the human upper respiratory tract. The session is moderated by UCSF Department of Medicine chair Bob Wachter.
