Two years ago today, Boston confirmed its first case of COVID-19.

Twenty-four months later, we're dealing with a much different story: 1.4 million cases in Massachusetts, and roughly 378 million worldwide. Back then, the words omicron and delta meant little to us and the idea of shutting down our state — and the world — seemed unimaginable.

We started Ask the Docs a month later to help you — and us — navigate the pandemic. We're still here and today, we continue to answer your questions.

Today, we continue it, two years later. We take your calls with Dr. Simon Wildes, an infectious disease expert at South Shore Health, and a new voice to Ask the Docs, Bill Hanage, an epidemiologist and co-director of the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

This segment aired on February 1, 2022.
