Dr. Frank McGeorge wants to verify or refute any information about the coronavirus, but there are also some questions experts still don’t know the answer to. McGeorge is discussing them because acknowldging what we don’t know is just as important as verifying information so people don’t rely on incorrect answers.

Stocking up on water

Everyone needs to take their personal safety seriously when it comes to preparing for emergencies. We know that in a natural disaster, emergency services might not be able to help you for days in some circumstances, and you wouldn’t be able to rely on having supplies delivered.

That’s why everyone should keep emergency supplies on hand.

Viewers from St. Clair Shores to Livonia have asked whether they should be stocking up on bottled water. Is there something that will happen to the water supply?

The answer is no. If you drink tap water, there’s nothing that will happen to the water supply.
