UCI in the News

“We had a suspicion there would be more cases if we looked in the overall community rather than just at those asking for testing, but we didn’t understand how widespread it was already.” — Tim Bruckner, a study principal and associate professor of public health at UC Irvine

“You could quarantine and be super careful, but then your Uncle Joe who hasn’t [been careful] is at the Thanksgiving table and maybe he gives it to you,” — says Andrew Noymer, an epidemiologist and associate professor of public health at University of California Irvine
