This week: Coronavirus, vaping and drugs of abuse

China is dealing with the outbreak of a respiratory illness caused by a new coronavirus. Thousands of people have been infected; some have died. And more cases are being diagnosed in people all over the world, including a relatively small number in the United States.

Providing perspective on this outbreak is Stephen Thomas, MD, a professor of medicine and microbiology and immunology at Upstate and its chief of infectious disease.

Also on "HealthLink on Air" this week, toxicologist Christine Stork from the Upstate New York Poison Center talks about vaping dangers and the most common drugs of abuse. Tune in this Sunday, February 2 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for "HealthLink on Air."
