Ep. 10 5-27 COVID Roundtable Update


Two weeks down the timeline from our last dialogue on the pandemic, we are back at it again – following a unique Memorial Day weekend no less – with our next COVID-19 Roundtable. Recorded on May 26th, we start with the numbers, keeping in mind that the story they tell today reflects the actions and community behaviors of roughly 2-5 weeks ago. Roundtable member Nick Vasquez, featured in May 25th’s Arizona Republic in an article on healthcare worker burnout, takes us on a tour of his current emergency room physician life. Will Humble, featured in May 26th’s Arizona Republic article on increases in hospital capacity, continues his insights from a public health perspective. And Marcus Johnson brings it all around with key policy perspectives. If you’re not familiar with the term “pre-vaccine pandemic” yet, that’s probably because we coined it in this episode. But you will be familiar with what it means and what it tells us by the time you’ve listened in.
