BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Dr. Ronald Reynoso, Chief Medical Officer of Adventist Health Bakersfield participated in a live question and answer session on the coronavirus.

Dr. Reynoso said it would be better to be overly cautious and say in the future "we had very little cases" than experience the pandemic like Italy is at this time. He said the elderly, 65 and above, seem to be most in-need during this time.

When asked how the virus could affect pregnant women, Dr. Reynoso said there is not much evidence at this time of how COVID-19 is affecting pregnant women. He suggests just being overly pre-cautious and that the best way to avoid becoming infected is to wash your hands and avoid large crowds.
