As there’s much to cover in the world of COVID, we’re dividing this week’s episode into two parts. In the first part, we cover the state of global COVID, the state of U.S. COVID, the latest in Long COVID, and what Americans are saying themselves about their latest COVID infections.
In the second part we’ll unpack the Biden talking point that we don’t have to do anything about COVID because “we have the tools”. The administration is using the phrase as rationale for avoiding the combinations of nonpharmaceutical interventions employers adamantly oppose whatever the impact on people’s health.
We’ll have the second part out in the next couple days and will link it here.
“COVID This Week” is produced by Vlad Jean, Shumon Alam, Rob Wallace, Rita Valenti, Les Schaffer, Bennett Torres, Zoe Levitt, Mary Jirmanus Saba, and the People’s CDC.
