Ernie Manouse was out sick with COVID for several days last week, but recently made his return to the show.

He's the media resource who has been working tirelessly with medical experts to keep the Houston community informed about COVID and vaccine updates on a weekly basis for almost two years. Shouldn't he have been able to escape the virus? Well, unfortunately, no.

What did he learn? He learned that COVID will find you, and you should be in the best condition to fight it when it does.

In this episode, Manouse gives firsthand knowledge of his battle with COVID and his breakthrough infection. A medical expert from the Mayo Clinic addresses callers’ questions on everything from boosters to variants to illness to masking. Also, we get an update on the global response to the pandemic.
