We Haven't Hit the Peak Yet - Dr. Tara Smith Discusses What's Ahead for COVID-19

Tara C. Smith, Ph.D., a professor of epidemiology from Kent State's College of Public Health, discussed the fight to stop the spread of COVID-19 and what's ahead for our state and country during a recent conversation on Facebook Live. She answered live questions and shared insights into such areas as social distancing, homemade masks and finding accurate information.

When will the worst of the pandemic be over? Smith says it's too soon to tell, but she does see progress in Ohio.

"I don't think we're at the peak yet. I hope that it is coming soon within the next 10 days or so," Smith said. "I'm really optimistic that we're slowing our spread (in Ohio) and that we have enough people doing this really well that we can hope that curve will be heading downward slope sometime soon."
