Tim Anaya – What You Need to Know About the Wuhan Coronavirus

This week on PRI’s “Next Round” podcast, we talk with Henry about how people get the illness and how it is being treated, how the Chinese and U.S. governments are working to combat it, the prospects for the rapid development of a vaccine, how social media disinformation is fueling the crisis, and how concerned Americans should be about becoming the victims of a deadly pandemic on U.S. soil. It’s a fascinating discussion.
