Dr. Harry Goldberg Gives Engrossing Presentation on COVID-19

Dr. Harry Goldberg, chair of the Belmont Hill Science Department, gave a wonderfully detailed and engrossing presentation on the transmission and physiology of COVID-19.

He opened with a sobering but truthful statement: "Simply stated, the virus is winning," Dr. Goldberg said. "If each and every one of us don't take this personally, the virus will continue to win."

Starting with a look at the very early days of the disease, Dr. Goldberg then talked about the "evolutionary goal of a virus," explaining exactly how the virus works.  He explained that a virus's evolutionary drive is to do just one thing: reproduce.
