Dr. Norem from MercyHealth joins the show every Monday morning at 7:05 to give us the latest on the coronavirus and COVID-19. 

This week we talk to Dr. Norem about plasma and more testing.

New studies have shown that plasma donation might be a key to finding a vaccine for the virus, Dr. Norem tells us what the next step will be.

And the University of Illinois has been a national leader in Saliva Direct testing that's, cheaper, easier, and returns quicker results. Will the rest of the county see this alternative to the nasal swabs we've grown used to?

We learn something every week from Dr. Norem and this week was no exception. We thank the doctor for taking time out of his day to join us.
