Behind The Lens episode 77: Got protection?

Local researchers push hard for new innovations and hopefully even a vaccine to fight the COVID-19 outbreak. Also, worrisome economic prospects for New Orleans workers and residents.

This week on Behind The Lens:

  • Health reporter Leslie Cardé reports on researchers right here in the NOLA region, looking for ways to curb the spread and finally stop it in its tracks.
  • Also, Michael Isaac Stein goes shopping for N95’s; you may be in for some sticker shock.
  • Marta Jewson reports on the transition to at-home learning amid school closures – it’s a lot slower than many parents might prefer.
  • And, Lamar Gardere of the New Orleans Data Center examines the economic catastrophe of COVID-19; who’s really bearing the brunt of our difficult new reality?
  • We wrap the show with a musical selection by singer/songwriter Jillian Good and her band, Damaged Goods.
