CHICO, Calif. -- Medical offices and hospitals tend to be busy year-round.
Yet, with the coronavirus causing schools to shut down, another hurdle for a lot of people, is the abrupt issue of childcare.
Michael Osterholm is the Director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy.
He says one-fourth of the American population has no sick time.
Paradise Medical Group James Logan is a pediatrician. He talked about how his office is helping out parents who need help, but have to stay at home.
“We have an app called PMG Connect, and so we can actually do video visits through apps so parents can load an app from their phone, have it on my iPhone, my iPad and we can actually do a visit and really try to keep the patients out of the ER which I think is not a good place for them.”
Dr. Logan said the app could be a better option as the need for work availability, especially for medical professionals, rises.
