In this special edition podcast, Dr. Noah Nesin, the Chief Medical Officer at Penobscot Community Healthcare and a longtime family physician, talks about COVID-19. He answers a wide range of questions including: what should people be doing right now in terms of social distancing and self-isolating, what should a person do if he or she shows symptoms, how is the coronavirus transmitted (bodily fluids? open wounds? mosquitos?), can you get it more than once, what about pets, can the virus be transmitted on paper such as pieces of mail, can it lead to pneumonia, and many more. Thank you to Dr. Nesin for joining the Maine Show at this important time.
Soubanh Phanthay, a recently elected member of the Brewer City Council, shares the story of spending part of his childhood years in a refugee camp in Thailand with his parents and siblings before moving across the world to Houlton, Maine. Soubanh also discusses his love of food, how he eventually ended up in the greater Bangor area, his photography business, and why it is so important for him to give back to his community.
