Updated November 15, 2020

Thomas A. Russo, MD, professor of medicine and chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases, is quoted in stories about the region’s rising COVID-19 rates. “The large increase in cases is not due to a large outbreak in a particular workplace or due to a single event or two. It was widespread increased infections across our entire community here in Western New York,” Russo said.
