“It’s Time to Tell a New Story About Coronavirus — Our Lives Depend on It”

The United States hit an all-time high of 75,600 new COVID Coronavirus cases Thursday — the largest number recorded in a single day since the pandemic began.

Top U.S. infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci says the spike in cases resulted from states rushing to reopen their economies.

Democracy Now! speaks with investigative journalist Sonia Shah about the government’s failed response, the false idea that the virus is a “foreign incursion,” and “vaccine nationalism.”

In her latest piece for The Nation magazine, she argues, “It’s Time to Tell a New Story About Coronavirus—Our Lives Depend on It.”
