Dr. Erin Morcomb, the lead physician on Mayo Clinic Health System’s COVID-19 team for SW Wisconsin joined La Crosse Talk PM on Monday to talk all things virus.

The discussion included Monoclonal antibody treatments, long-hauler effects from contracting COVID, hospital capacity in La Crosse, vaccine vs. natural immunity, why we need not worry about long-term effects from the vaccine, despite it getting to the public so quickly.
