Coronavirus Pandemic

About the Show

On the ground in Seattle, Washington, a U.S. epicentre of the COVID-19 outbreak, veteran science journalist Miles O’Brien looks at how the coronavirus response by officials in Washington State compares with that of the federal government in Washington, D.C. It’s truly a tale of two Washingtons — and it examines the consequences of the Trump administration’s diminishment of science. Producers Jezza Neumann and Ben C. Solomon also document how the outbreak is impacting children and families who were already facing hunger, poverty and homelessness - and how it is dramatically deepening these existing inequities.
