TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - Dr. Christie Alexander of FSU’s College of Medicine joined Eyewitness News at 4 p.m. with Ben and Katie Kaplan to answer your COVID-19 questions.

Dr. Alexander answered the following questions in this segment:

  • After seeing a rise in cases across the state and here in Leon County, what are you hearing from your colleagues here and across the state?
  • There’s a new report from the CDC on the three symptoms that almost all COVID patients have. What are those?
  • A viewer reached out to ask if you could show how to properly wear a mask, because she says she keeps seeing people who don’t have it covering their nose.
  • The head of the CDC says if we all wear masks, we could get this pandemic under control relatively quickly. Is that true?
  • Is there anything else you would like to add before we let you go?

Dr. Alexander answered the following questions in this segment:

  • We have continue to watch the surge in Florida and several other state. How are we doing on our testing capacity and the speed of results?
  • We’ve been watching the positivity rate in Florida spike for about the past month. It was below 5%, and now it’s hovering between 12 to 14%. What range would health officials like to see to show we’re controlling spread of the virus?
  • There is good news on another potential vaccine. It’s going into final testing — what do you know about this and what are the next steps?
  • Would a vaccine need two doses in order to be effective?

Dr. Alexander answered the following questions in this segment:

  • Numbers are still relatively low for Leon County and much of North Florida and South Georgia. Are we likely to see a bigger spike like they’re seeing in South Florida?
  • The World Health Organization put out a new brief on how the virus spreads. That’s after a group of doctors raised concerns about small droplets lingering in the air. What is WHO saying?
  • We’re seeing rates really go up among young people. Why do you think that is?
  • Doctors are noticing a lot of young people may show no symptoms, few symptoms and different symptoms than older folks. What can you tell us about that?
  • Is there anything else you’d like to add before we let you go?
