Through Science to Health ~ 8/07/20

Today’s Through Science to Health program with KPTZ host Chris Bricker and Lynn Sorensen, RN discussed local and national news regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Articles from the National Institute for Health (NIH), NPR, and The Atlantic were sources for their discussion regarding vaccine development, therapeutic tests, infection and death projection numbers through 2020, and the human immune system – its usual response to pathogens and its unusual response to coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) where it over-performs, causing more damage to the human body. The question of school re-opening is still that – a question. Local school districts have yet to announce their plan for this academic year.
