Dr. Manisha Juthani answers a question from a journalist.

With COVID-19 test positivity rates up significantly since their mid-March lows of around 2%, the Connecticut Department of Public Health is reminding physicians statewide about the availability and effectiveness of COVID-19 therapeutics. Those are medications that patients can take after testing positive to treat the illness.

For more on this, Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Manisha Juthani returned to “All Things Considered.”

Joining her on the program was Dr. Vivian Leung from the DPH team that oversees the distribution of the therapeutics.
