Are nursing homes bad for the elderly?

7/1/2020
In the United States, more than a third of reported deaths from Covid-19 have occurred in nursing homes, and it’s not hard to guess why. You’ve got old and sick people with multiple chronic conditions living close together in an enclosed space -- ideal for the spread of a deadly virus.

When will it be safe to go back to school?

6/24/2020
When you think about the conditions that have been most conducive to the spread of Covid-19 -- prolonged contact with lots of people in enclosed spaces -- colleges and universities have them all. Students, faculty, and staff had their spring semesters interrupted by the first wave of the pandemic. With fall fast approaching, it’s tempting to go back to business as usual. But the virus may not cooperate. In this episode, we’re taking on higher education. When and how will it really be safe to...

Should vaccination be mandatory?

6/17/2020
Experts agree that once we have a vaccine for Covid-19, we will need the vast majority of the population to take it - enough so we get to herd immunity. But the rise of the anti-vaccine movement has already led to outbreaks of diseases we thought were long gone. And now, in the midst of a global pandemic, the risk of further outbreaks is heightened because parents of young kids are afraid to go to the doctor’s office to get their shots. Once we finally have a vaccine that’s safe, effective,...

Who will get the vaccine first?

6/10/2020
Part two in our 3-part series on vaccines: Manufacturing. Last month, President Trump announced the beginning of “Operation Warp Speed,” an initiative to develop and produce a vaccine for Covid-19 in record time. But creating a vaccine that’s safe and effective is just the first step in a long and complicated process. Even when we have a vaccine, it’s almost certain that there won’t be enough for everyone. Millions of Americans and billions of people all over the world are going to want this...

Should we deliberately infect people with Covid-19 to get a vaccine?

6/3/2020
Part one of our 3-part series on vaccines: Human Experiments. Experts say the development of a safe and effective vaccine will take at least a year, maybe a lot longer. What are we willing to risk to speed that up? Thousands of healthy people have already volunteered to be deliberately infected with the Coronavirus in order to test potential vaccines. Is that ethical? See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Do abortions count as "Essential Care"?

5/6/2020
To stop Covid-19 from overwhelming our healthcare system, many states have ordered that any “non-essential” procedures be cancelled or postponed.

And who gets to decide? See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Why are more black people dying of Covid 19? And can we solve that?

4/29/2020
The virus may not discriminate, but people - and institutions - do. Discrimination in medicine, housing, and food have disproportionately affected the health of African-Americans for generations. In many ways, Covid-19 is just exacerbating these age-old problems. In this episode: Can we solve the racial disparity in deaths from Covid-19? What can we do to address hundreds of years of inequity in the way we respond to this pandemic? See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Who cares for the caregivers?

4/22/2020
Everywhere you look, front line medical providers are being praised as “heroes.” Some people are leaning out their windows every night to bang on pots and pans and cheer for them. But is that enough? In this episode… Who cares for the caregivers? What do we owe as a society to the people putting their lives on the line in the fight against Covid-19?

Can the government force you to stay home? And if so, can enforcement go too far?

4/15/2020
With about half a million confirmed cases of Covid-19 across the United States, a lot of people are looking for guidance about how to stay safe and stop the spread of the virus. The message from the federal government has been confusing, to say the least. And each state seems to be doing its own thing. The failure to take decisive action to enforce physical distancing may have deadly consequences. But can enforcement go too far? See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Who gets the ventilator?

4/8/2020
COVID-19 is overwhelming our healthcare system. As cases increase exponentially across the United States, it’s clear we just don’t have enough resources to go around. Doctors in the United States aren’t used to dealing with scarcity. Now they’re being forced to make tough decisions about rationing care. How do you decide who gets the ventilator, when there aren’t enough for every patient who needs one? See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
