Betrayed Nurses, Global Scientists Explain Our Future with COVID19
How did this virus begin? How did it jump from animals to humans? Why do we not have testing available so we can resume our lives? We're at least a year away from a vaccine, and we are still filled with questions, and some people are filled with anger. In this episode we will hear from hospital staff, epidemiologists, & biosecurity experts who are working tirelessly to relieve the patients and the workers of this crisis from around the world:
Dr. Emma Hodcroft is a molecular biologist in Switzerland tracking the CoronaVirus in real-time. Her work reveals how the CoronaVirus jumped from animals to humans, and can distinguish if a COVID-19 patient caught the virus from someone in China, Seattle, or in their own neighborhood.
Professor Raina MacIntyre is a biosecurity expert in Australia and explains why testing is paramount to our safety and the superiority of N-95 masks.
Dr. Saskia Popescu is a senior infection prevention epidemiologist in Arizona who explains how much more social distancing we can expect.
Dr. Seema Yasmin is the Director of the Stanford Health Communication Initiative and describes how women will be impacted by the pandemic.
Stephanie, a nurse in Brittany, France, shares her frustration at the lack of preparedness to protect herself, her coworkers, and her patients.
- And we’ll check back in with Antoinette Ward, the nurse practitioner who created, and is leading testing for COVID19, at a major hospital in Atlanta.
And next week, we'll have an interview with Stacey Abrams! We'll talk about love, friendship, and how COVID19 will further impact voter suppression.
