At around 6:30 every weeknight, our anchors will question experts live, and then, on the KSAT News at Nine, they’ll answer viewer questions submitted through the SAQ article. (You can also ask your question in the prompt below.)

Facts can fight fear, and in times like this KSAT wants to do more, because you should expect it.

The following are some questions we asked Berggren:

  • Are the city and county prepared?
  • When could we see a surge of COVID-19 patients?
  • What about a promising treatment being tested at UT Health San Antonio?
