William Powderly, MD, reminds the community that the COVID-19 pandemic is still in the first wave of the pandemic and Americans need to continue to take steps to control the spread.

More than 1,000 people in Missouri have died from COVID-19, according to data analyzed by St. Louis Public Radio. The state reached that milestone three months after the first person in the state died from the disease. In a recent St. Louis Public radio story, William Powderly, MD, the J. William Campbell Professor of Medicine, said the numbers are a sign we truly are in a pandemic. “We are still in the phase where it could rapidly flare up again if we don’t remain vigilant,” he said.
