Doctor offers COVID-19 tests to protesters


As thousands of New Yorkers rallied to protest police brutality and racist treatment of blacks, there was growing concern about how it might contribute to the coronavirus. Although the rate of daily positive tests in New York remains at around 1%, other states in the country are experiencing strong spikes in cases. On Tuesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci warned that the United States could see 100,000 cases a day if things did not change immediately. This is why a local doctor took it upon himself to offer COVID-19 tests to protesters during marches through the city. Dr. Alex Brevil works as an emergency physician at SUNY Downstate Medical Center and has been involved in this movement from the very beginning. He shares his story with the NY1 anchor Cheryl Wills.
