May 8, 2020
DESCRIPTION: Friday May 8, noon US ET - Another week has passed in the first pandemic of the 21st century, with thousands of new stories posted and printed, yet questions still often outnumbering answers.

Each Friday, the Earth Institute Initiative on Communication and Sustainability hosts a lunchtime review of the headlines with experts and leading journalists. Here, Kai Kupferschmidt, covering COVID-19 from Berlin, joins host Andy Revkin in a review of this week’s, and next week’s, headlines with Pulitzer winner Laurie Garrett, NBC’s Robert Bazell, Jon Cohen of Science Magazine and Wendy Wertheimer, formerly of WHO & NIH.
