This weekend marks exactly one year since the first case of COVID-19 was confirmed in Indiana. Tonight, WISH-TV is proud to bring together leading experts from around central Indiana for “Overcoming COVID:  A WISH-TV Special”

New 8’s medical reporter, Dr. Mary Gillis, was on IndyStyle to talk about what to expect from the special, which will focus on four topics: the economy, schools and education, vaccines and mental health.

“The goal is to look ahead to the next few months, to look forward to what can be done to help end the pandemic,” said Gillis. “We know what’s happened. So, the focus is really about the future.”

Leading experts from across the state will speak to each of the four topics and answer questions from Hoosiers. You can submit your questions on the WISH-TV
Facebook page.

The special airs tonight (Thursday, 3/4) at 6:00 PM. The full hour of discussion will be live on WISH-TV, on and on the WISH-TV Facebook page.

Indiana State Department of Health on Thursday reported 32 more Hoosier deaths, bringing the toll to 12,231.
