COVID-19: Coming to a Community Near You?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning Americans to prepare for COVID-19 to spread within the US. (That’s the new disease caused by coronavirus.) When the CDC says ‘this could be bad,’ they mean major disruptions to your everyday life. But health experts want to make it clear that preparing doesn’t mean panicking. Meanwhile, the Syrian civil war made a surprise appearance in last night’s Democratic primary debate. We’ll explain why the current situation in Syria is so dire, and why millions of people there still need help. Also on the show: Gretchen Carlson shares her advice for what to do if you’re dealing with harassment at work, and talks about her new organization, Lift Our Voices.
