News is developing so quickly around the COVID-19 situation in the United States, and UTMB experts are doing what they can to educate the press and others who are communicating to the general public, all while maintaining a focus on the work they are doing in their own laboratories.

This article from the Washington Post features Dr. Vineet Menachery, virologist in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at UTMB discussing children and this virus and how the research taking place in his lab with SARS may help build understanding of the behavior of  COVID-19 with regard to children, infection and transmission.
