Episode 17 of my podcast series, Salon of the Refused, is now available.
I talk with Amesh Adalja, Senior Scholar at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security. The conversation includes: how COVID-19 is different from the flu, the risk of “surge mode” overwhelming our health care system, what the US government has done and where it has failed, what individuals can do–and whether everybody is panicking about it. This is relatively short, just over 15 minutes, but if there’s one thing you can check out to be informed on the coronavirus pandemic, this is it.
The podcast is available through iTunes or Google Play, or listen to it here.
