Aug 26, 2020

We step out of the usual Kentucky/US info bubble to get an international perspective on the global pandemic in smaller, more remote countries half a world away.  Dr. Greg talks with Tara Loyd, executive director of the international group, Pivot, which is heavily involved in diagnosing and treating COVID-19 patients in Madagascar.
