The Sick And The Testless

What A Day - March 23, 2020 - 23:15

We interview Alexis Madrigal, staff writer at the Atlantic and founder of The COVID Tracking project, about the current state of coronavirus testing and why it took so long to get started. Congress still hasn’t reached a deal on the coronavirus relief bill. We discuss where things stand, with five Republican senators in self-isolation and one recently diagnosed with Covid-19. And in headlines: Kentucky does voter suppression while no one is looking, less traffic and pollution, and streaming services cut bit rates in the EU.
