The day the WHO declared a global pandemic. The roll-out of the first vaccines. The rise of the Delta variant. The announcement of vaccine mandates. For all these moments and everything in between, Apoorva Mandavilli has been tirelessly reporting on the pandemic. Her meticulously researched journalism has kept us informed about the most pressing issues related to COVID-19, with titles like “Will vaccine mandates slow the pandemic? Yes, scientists say — but not immediately” and “Here’s what to know about breakthrough infections and the Delta variant”. On this episode of the Business Group on Health Podcast, we get Apoorva’s expert take on the vaccine mandate, the type of masks we should be wearing (and where), booster shots, risk communication and the health topics we’ll be paying more attention to in the future.
