A leading reporter on infectious disease reflects on three years of covering the pandemic
Veteran health and science journalist Helen Branswell joins guest host Mann to reflect on the third anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic and the 20th anniversary of the SARS outbreak in Toronto. Branswell is widely regarded as one of the first journalists in North America to report news of the virus for the U.S. health website STAT. The Canadian journalist shares her thoughts on the increasingly political nature of health reporting, why the public needs to be better informed about how science evolves, and lessons learned.
