CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Leading health experts with the Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals held a joint media briefing on Thursday to discuss a variety of coronavirus-related issues, including what Northeast Ohio may see during “the next wave.”

Cleveland Clinic’s chief of medical operations Dr. Robert Wyllie and chair of the Department of Critical Care Medicine Dr. Hassan Khouli were joined by the president of University Hospitals’ Academic & External Affairs and Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Daniel Simon and director of Pediatric Infection Control with Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital Dr. Claudia Hoyen for 12:30 p.m. remarks.
