While telehealth is known to play a critical role in day-to-day healthcare needs, the virtual format is especially pertinent in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. With event cancelations and rampant social distancing efforts underway, MeMD Chief Medical Officer Dr. Nicholas Lorenzo explained to Fox & Friends viewers nationwide that telehealth is providing Americans with a feasible and convenient avenue to get their symptoms assessed via a computer, phone or mobile device – without chancing the spread of the virus to others.

In this segment, Dr. Lorenzo explains more telehealth advantages and highlights at-home testing kits that MeMD will be offering to consumers who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

MeMD was asked by Fox & Friends to explain the benefits of telehealth as Americans grapple with COVID-19.

MeMD has compiled additional information about COVID-19, including CDC resources, symptom lists, prevention tips and quick links to request a telehealth visit – check out the MeMD COVID-19 resource center here.
