The Minnesota Medical Association’s (MMA’s) Dr. Edwin Bogonko says emergency room visits are down roughly 42-percent nationwide amid coronavirus.

“People are not coming to seek care at the right time, that may have an impact that is very detrimental to the health of our state, especially in the near future.”

Dr. Bogonko is urging people who feel like they have health concerns that need to be addressed to call their physician and make an appointment–and not to put it off.
