BURNS N. C.-A Torrance Calif. computer psychologist and infectious disease expert testified against diseases caused by the common strain of coronavirus (Coronavirus 7) in the Senate in early March. Dr. Nathaniel Magnani a not-for-profit school science teacher who converted to the new role as an infectious disease expert in April after leaving the Connecticut State UniversityConnecticut diagnostics team testified during a hearing on February 25 2020 during which he testified for one day. About 50 people filed out of the hearing which lasted about three hours. The majority of the hearing attendees were focused on the following question: How to confidently predict the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 which causes COVID-19 disease? Minority attendance was noted with two Caucasians female and four males supporting the position of the hearing panel. Dr. Magnani and his colleagues emphasized the need for a national workforce of coronavirus experts to launch COVID-19 testing laboratories and recommend measures to monitor the disease which now infects more than 400000 people annually worldwide.
Upon hearing the question the distinguished physician nodded her assent.
Im proud to have participated during this once-in-a-century opportunity to refute the common health fallacy that is that the tsunami of infections that are the result of medical clinics is insignificant and that the infectious agents in the ICU are not dangerous said Dr. Magnani. Thats exactly why we did it. It was to give you a sense of how both experts could work together to prevent future disease outbreaks. Because we know the floodgate is open and that once labs are overwhelmed it could even be one day. That doesnt have to be next year. He added: I know what that panel member saw more than anything in front of them. I know whats right there on the hill but more importantly Id like to see that not just once but twice three times that people are going to be okay fearless and brave and not be very very ill.
The next events sessions are directed by Dr. Magnani and Dr. Christopher Daghej a well-known expert on physical and musculoskeletal health.
