Misinformation about COVID-19 spreads far and fast, especially in this age of modern media. Siouxland Public Media’s Sheila Brummer found a local expert who says this isn’t something new during a world-wide crisis even among politicians.

Iowa public health officials say coronavirus cases have increased by 52, raising the total statewide to 549.

Two more deaths were reported Wednesday. They were both over age 81.

The virus is now present in 60 of Iowa's 99 counties including O’Brien County in northwest Iowa.  The person who tested positive is a woman between the age of 41 to 60 and is self-isolating at home.

State health officials say 63 people are currently hospitalized.

The National Guard recently delivered much-needed medical supplies to all of Iowa’s 99 counties.  As Sheila Brummer reports on one medical group seeing even more need.  

The doctor in charge of Siouxland’s only family medicine residency program says there is a critical shortage of personal protective equipment or PPE.

“That is why I’m asking the public to be respectful and stay home.  Because that is one thing they can do to minimize the risk to my nurses, my receptionists my staff because they can’t stay home.”

Fifty-seven counties have confirmed cases including the first case in Clay County.  There were two more confirmed in Sioux County for a total of 15 in Siouxland.

Testing is still quite limited in the state, so the actual number of cases is likely much bigger and more widespread.
