Toward A New Understanding Of Disease And Infections


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Sonai Shah about understanding infections and disease.

Coronavirus cases are skyrocketing across the US with global data showing that poorer nations—and the US—are driving infections up internationally. Misinformation about the virus abounds on the internet, in large part stemming from a mistrust of government that President Donald Trump and his supporters thrive on.

Now, a science journalist who has written about pandemics even before this year, says we need a paradigm shift on how we think about contagious diseases if we are to survive.

Read Sonia Shah’s article, ‘It’s Time to Tell a New Story About Coronavirus—Our Lives Depend on It,’ HERE.
