Political Rewind: What Comes Next In Public Health Response?

Apr 3, 2020

Friday on Political Rewind, we were joined by senior researcher and professor of Emory University Dr. Carlos del Rio for an in-depth conversation on the unfolding stories surrounding coronavirus public health.

We discussed the use of masks by the public and the governor's recently announced shelter-in-place order.

And, the state labor department has reported a tenfold increase in applications for unemployment benefits in just one week. A record 134,000 were processed over a seven-day period.
