S1E8 / Unequal: Race, Status, and COVID-19 / Jeneen Interlandi and Greg Asbed

EPIDEMIC with Dr. Celine Gounder and Ronald Klain

People who don’t have access to medical care, people who don’t have access to the healthcare system in general, are going to be much more vulnerable. They are not going to be treated, they are going to get sick, they are more likely to die, and they are also more likely to spread the virus to other people.” --Jeneen Interlandi

Co-hosts Dr. Celine Gounder and Ron Klain speak with New York Times journalist and editorial board member, Jeneen Interlandi, a key member of the Times 1619 project, about how issues of race historically, and in the present day, impact access to healthcare in America. 

They also talk with Greg Asbed, co-founder of the Fair Food Program, and a long-time human rights advocate about how COVID-19 is impacting farm workers and our food supply—and how we need to look at farmworkers as “essential services.”

Listener Q&A:

  • How effective are school closures in preventing the spread of COVID-19?
  • What is the efficacy of homemade masks when at work?
