Dylan Chan, MD featured in KCRW’s Greater LA Podcast

February 5, 2021
Dr. Dylan Chan is the director of the UCSF Children's Communication Center.

The feature focused on Dr. Chan's COVID-19 interactive calculator which utilizes data to estimate the likelihood that a group of asymptomatic children will contain one child with COVID-19 in any county in the U.S.

The information provided by Dr. Chan’s calculator will be valuable to teachers and school officials as they decide if it’s safe for children to return to class.

Dr. Chan states, “It is never going to be possible to completely eliminate risk. [We should be] focusing our efforts and resources into constructing safe environments, using tried and true things like masks and social distancing and reduced class size to minimize that risk rather than eliminate the risk”.
