    TBD | Are We Getting COVID Testing All Wrong?

    TBD | Are We Getting COVID Testing All Wrong?

    In the U.S., the PCR test is the gold standard for COVID testing. Common knowledge would have it that the test is more accurate—and therefore more effective at containing the spread of the dease—than the rapid antigen test.

    Guest: Michael Mina, assistant professor of epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

    The Haitian Refugees Blocked at the Border

    By last weekend, nearly 14,000 migrants primarily from Haiti had amassed along the border in Texas. Then the Biden administration began a massive deportation effort.

    Guest: Jacqueline Charles, Caribbean correspondent for the Miami Herald.
