COVID-19: Origins, Spread, and Impacts (June 17, 2020)

How and why does a virus jump from animals to humans? How do we model the spread of infection, and how do racial inequities in health and healthcare affect how a pandemic unfolds?

This is part one of a two-part series.

Join the American Museum of Natural History for an online discussion with Museum curator and evolutionary biologist Nancy Simmons , public health and policy expert Joshua Sharfstein , and social epidemiologist Lisa Cooper to explore the basic biology and social context of COVID-19 and what these mean for how we anticipate and mitigate the spread of the virus. Moderated by New York Times science writer, Apoorva Mandavilli.
