Dr. Jeremy Faust, an emergency medicine physician at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital and a Harvard Medical School instructor, talked about a Washington Post op-ed he co-authored on COVID-19 in which he urged officials to look at the “excess mortality” rate, the number of deaths occurring that exceed the expected number. He also responded to viewer questions.

Dr. Gary Simon, infectious disease division director at the George Washington University School of Medicine, discussed the latest in COVID-19 clinical care, efforts to stop the spread of the virus that causes the disease, and the possibility for a second wave of cases in Fall 2020. He also responded to viewer calls.

House Small Business Committee Chair Nydia Velazquez (D-NY) spoke about the impact of COVID-19 on her district, which includes parts of Brooklyn, Queens, and lower Manhattan and is one of the U.A. epicenters of the outbreak. She also talked about her own experience getting sick with COVID-19 and her recovery. close
