This week: Covid-19 lung damage, yellow fever vaccine study

Severe cases of COVID-19 can inflame the lungs. Pulmonologist Dana Savici explains what that means and also how permanent it could be. Dr. Savici is an associate professor of medicine and chief of pulmonary and critical care at Upstate University Hospital. Also on this week's show, Upstate's Institute for Global Health and Translational Science is studying a potential new vaccine for yellow fever. Principal investigator Dr. Kris Paolino, an infectious disease physician, talks about yellow fever and how this clinical trial is designed. Healthy adults up to age 60 can learn more about volunteering by calling 315-464-9869. And Dr. Hesham Masoud, a stroke neurologist, tells how sleep apnea increases a person's risk for stroke.
