The Crisis Enters a New Phase: Are We Making Progress or Simply Facing or Even Creating New Risks?

America is re-opening.  Whether we should be or not is beside the point.  It is happening.  So the question becomes how do we manage that re-opening and what risks may be emerging that we are ill-prepared for?  Some are public health risks?  Some have to do with adapting to a new way of life.  In addition, just as we face the greatest public health crisis in a century, we witness the scene of a police officer crushing a man’s throat and killing him which forces us to address yet another dimension of all this–how can we trust our government to keep us safe?  We discuss with Dr. Leana Wen, a practicing physician and former Health Commissioner of Baltimore, Dr. Kavita Patel, also a physician and former WH official during the Obama Administration and our regular co-host Ryan Goodman of NYU Law School and “Just Security.”  It is a sobering, incisive discussion.  Don’t miss it.
