This week on the podcast:

  • City and state officials have ordered sweeping restrictions of public life and daily commerce, yet the illness continues to spread. We hear from our reporting staff, watching the story throughout the week.
  • We get input from Lt. General Russel Honore (U.S. Army-ret.), the commander of Joint Task Force Katrina.
  • We also hear from a man who was exposed to the virus. He got sick but he and his partner still had to wait to get tested.
  • And, Dr. MarkAlain Dery looks at how we got to this point.
