Watch: NM medical panel offers firsthand information regarding virus fight

How prepared are New Mexico and its major health care systems to care for the increasing number of COVID-19 patients?

Find out firsthand from four of the leaders of New Mexico’s medical establishment during a 90-minute panel interview that will be live-streamed Wednesday, April 1, on ABQJournal.com. The discussion will begin at 6:30 p.m. and continue until 8 p.m.

Panelists will include Dr. David Scrase, secretary of the state Human Services Department; Dale Maxwell, president and CEO of Presbyterian Healthcare Services; Dr. Paul Roth, chancellor for Health Sciences and CEO of the UNM Health System; and Ron Stern, president and CEO of Lovelace Health System.

Journal Senior Editor Kent Walz will moderate.

The Journal last week invited readers to submit questions, and many responded. Among those questions to be posed to the experts tonight are:

• What are the latest numbers involving positive tests, hospitalizations and recoveries? And does the state have modeling numbers yet to help forecast the curve of the pandemic here? Can we still flatten the curve?

• What is the capacity at each of the three health care systems represented? Are there enough beds, ventilators and health care workers? And what steps are being taken to protect the front-line docs, nurses and others?

• Is there is a standard treatment protocol for those infected?

• What plans are in place for decisions on who gets what care if our system here is overwhelmed?
