Excellent COVID Data

Your interview with Dr. Monica Gandhi was more informative than any COVID discussion I’ve heard. She quoted from well-respected research in international medical journals and revealed that the recent guideline confusion was a “messaging” error rather than a scientific one. Unfortunately, her microphone did not amplify her voice clearly.
