On February 28, Drs. Zanthia Wiley and Sujit Suchindran of Emory Healthcare join us to discuss infectious diseases. The show theme is The Tale of Two Realities. A Dickens’ play on it was the best of times and the worst of times. 50mil vaccinated, possibly 100mil immune from infection. But more infectious variants on the rise and vax deniers precluding herd immunity.
