Biocontainment Unit Staff Say Worst of Covid-19 Yet To Come

A doctor at the Nebraska Medicine Biocontainment Unit says the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic is on its way. Medical Director Dr. Angela Hewlett says when it comes to the numbers Nebraska looks good compared to other states, but a county comparison tells a different story. Dr. Hewlett says 600 of Nebraska's nearly 19-hundred cases come from a large meat processing plant in a single county. Dr. Hewlett also said though the state is mostly rural, Nebraskans should be prepared for hotspots to surface in the coming days and weeks around the United States.
