At a time when the disease is impacting financial markets, dominating news coverage and disrupting daily life, this show cuts through the fear-mongering and misinformation to bring listeners the truth—with informed commentary, helpful context and reporting from only the most credible sources.
About a month ago, Dr. Anthony Fauci said that the United States is “out of the pandemic phase,” but he later clarified that the country is, “out of the full-blown explosive pandemic phase.” Americans are decreasingly concerned about the distinction, as only 9% believe Covid-19 still represents “a serious crisis.” What’s the official status of the Covid-19 pandemic now?
Meanwhile, several listeners wrote into the show with concerns about a recent outbreak of monkeypox, with 10 cases now confirmed in the United States and hundreds in Europe. The W.H.O. warns it could be just “the peak of the iceberg.” Is a new pandemic coming?
Jeremy Corr and Dr. Robert Pearl examine these questions and many others in this episode of Coronavirus: The Truth. You’ll find all the [time stamped] topics discussed during this show here:
