This week, I talk to Maryanne Tranter, a pediatric Nurse Practitioner, about what a virus actually is. We are hearing all about the Coronavirus right now, but regular colds and cases of flu are caused by viruses, too!
We talk about what viruses are, how do we get them, and what we can do about it.
Also, Chuck Darwin gives us a virus-related word of the week, Captain Jack finds out if chickens cause the Chicken Pox virus, and Tito tells us about an important animal that helps us with many viruses. In the ocean!
