UB Working on Medication to Prevent COVID-19 in Close Contacts

Updated November 11, 2020

A report featured work by UB researchers on a national study of a medication to protect the health of people who come in close contact with someone with COVID-19. The story quotes Sanjay Sethi, MD, professor of medicine and chief of the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine. “Most people who develop COVID after an exposure will develop it within seven days, usually, but we’ll follow people and see what happens with them,” said Sethi. “They are doing periodic looks at the data to see if there is a strong signal of benefit.”
