S1E1 / Do we need a coronavirus czar?

EPIDEMIC with Dr. Celine Gounder and Ronald Klain

“We cannot build a wall, a real wall, or a metaphorical wall to keep this disease out. We have to understand it's coming. It's here already. It's going to come to a greater extent and we need to be preparing to deal with that.” --Co-Host Ron Klain

In today’s episode,  our co-hosts Dr. Celine Gounder and Ron Klain discuss whether the U.S. should be appointing a coronavirus czar to oversee and coordinate the national response to COVID-19. They share thoughts on the U.S. response so far, including travel restrictions, social distancing, and the decision to appoint Vice President Mike Pence to head the coronavirus response. They end by answering listener questions on traveling for spring break, and address discrimination against Chinese Americans.

Is it time to call #SARS-CoV-2 #COVID-19 #coronavirus epidemic a pandemic?
