Natasha Chandel, host of the Kinda Dating podcast, spoke with experienced ENT Dr. Brian Lobo about the practicalities of dating during the coronavirus. They agree that it would be both difficult and depressing to live in total isolation until the pandemic ends, but people should limit their contact with others to only those they can trust to be safe, smart and clean. The episode also features an interview with Dr. Amit Sood of the Mayo Clinic, who answers questions about a well-rounded approach to COVID care. Natasha begins and ends both of their interviews with personal questions about their love lives that lead to some pretty interesting answers.

on that note, we're gonna I'm gonna ask you a couple of just logistical questions, because I know you have. Ah, a bit of an out. So, um, you know, for people wondering if they are going on a date or whatever, can you be intimate? Should you refrain especially? You know, we were We were joking. That, uh, this whole time is probably gonna There's gonna be two, two piles of people. There's gonna be a lot of breakups and a lot of Covic babies because of people trapped inside. Yeah, I mean, I wouldn't I wouldn't be surprised if there is a nice little cove. It baby bump about nine months from now because everyone's walked in close quarters and has nothing to dio. Yeah, s o. I mean, how can people be responsible when it comes to again kissing sex? Um, what if you live with someone? How do you sort of safeguard the physical aspect of things? No, Absolutely. I mean, I think you know, this is not a sexually transmitted disease, right? This is a respiratory illness. There are some, uh, mentions that hypothetically Children can can shed these, uh, in stool. I don't know that that's true or not, because you know a lot. Unfortunately, a lot of the you know, most of the medical data that we depend on is usually well vetted and well, uh, curated. And here we're just kind of using what we call, I mean, kind of real time information that we're getting, but yeah. I mean, I think if you have a partner and you and that partner are, you know each other neither. You are ill. Neither of you have had ill contacts, you know? I mean, I think I think because there's that proximity, I don't think there's any problem. I mean, if you, however, are meeting someone for the first time, um, you know, if you cannot keep it together for life two or three weeks, um then maybe you should be exercising. Yeah, There might be some other problem that you're having if you can't if you can't keep it together for that amount of time. What if you you know, I think with someone, because I feel like that's not what if you live with someone who has just, like live with Zumba? Is someone like a partner and somebody is going out whatever the grocery store and then coming back or, well, e Well, yeah, I think. I think, honestly, if you are in a you know, a committed relationship with somebody else and you trust that that person is being safe, you trust that that person's washing their hands. You trust that that person is, you know, avoiding people who are coughing or sneezing. They're not touching things excessively, you know? E think there's no there's no problem with interacting with your fellow person. You know, we've seen the number of Corona fist bumps in the Corona elbow taps in the Corona feet. Bumps that we've been seeing has been kind of comical. But, you know, it's an effective way to in some ways share humanity without kind of touching ones. Hands um, e I think I think if you're living with someone, I mean, you know, the other thing you have to balance is does that person that you're living with have some sort of medical co morbidity? Um, if that person is having a medical co morbidity, you probably wanna be far more careful, uh, than if that person is otherwise healthy. Um uh, But I think if you're if you are living with someone, if there's someone in your house, if it's, you know, friends and family and that sort of stuff, I think it's very much a trust related issue. Andi, I think open information is also important. Let's say, for example, your friend, you know, two weeks from now finds out that she has Kobe 19. It's probably important for her to let all of you, Pete, you let all of, you know just so that you have that data point. You're aware your your you know, radars Now, you know, up and firing and full power and that you're watching out for this sort of stuff. Um, should So what? What kind of alternate ideas Can we sort of brainstorm real quick for dates that are not at bars? Um, e I mean, I hate the phone, but phone dates face time date. You know, I think I think people have a lot of opportunity to be creative. Um, you know, we were We have a huge kind of dependency on bars. We have a huge, you know, dependency on restaurant. Um, the great outdoors is a great place to both. Find yourself and escaped from other people. Um, you know, going out into the woods and going hiking, going into parks and actually doing some sort of like taking a job together. Taking a long bike ride together is probably gonna be a, you know, physical activities in the outdoors. Um, probably gonna be some great, you know, we're places that you could go where you're just not going to interact with a lot of other people or you're not going to be using a lot of facilities that other people have been trudging through s Oh, yeah. I mean, we will end up being like it's like the 19 fifties, where you and just taking a stroll around your neighborhood together and talk. Um, yeah, which is kind of false, Which is kind of also told me, if you think about it, it's the whole idea that, you know, like the idea that you might actually put your phone down for more than, like, five seconds and actually talk to another human being. I mean, that's amazing. Totally e driving. E. Think driving there. Okay. I mean, I'm sure I mean, as long as like I said, as long as that person that you're dealing with is sick. And, you know, this is probably a good opportunity for you to bring your own food and drinks. Uh, pop some popcorn at home, bring some, you know, bubbly water from home. And then kind of do that because, yeah, I mean, it gives you an opportunity to be with other people doing stuff with other people. But, hey, you know, as long as you're keeping your own car clean, you're good. Yeah. Um, Cove it and chill has become a thing. Cool. Yeah, I'm sure. I'm sure that has become a thing, Um, which will again also lead to a bunch of covert babies nine months from now. So, guys, if you are doing that, wrap it up, wrap it up, being being you should just you know, I think it's hilarious. People are, you know, they're worried about Cove. It's like, Well, you gotta be worried about all the other things that you hatch and should have been worried about, you know, all the previous years. So yes. Please be safe. And all of your that
