Brianne Barker lives and breathes viruses.
Figuratively speaking, of course.
Between episodes of her This Week in Virology podcast, the Harvard-educated expert teaches biology and an introductory course on infectious diseases at Drew University, which sent forth the Class of ’20 this month via a Zoom commencement.
Will grads ever fling their mortarboards for real again? Why is a coronavirus vaccine so elusive? Is your pet a vector? How Significant is your Other in a pandemic?
Barker unravels these mysteries, and more, as our guest on Episode Three of The Morristown Green Podcast:
- How effective are masks?
- When and where should you wear them?
- Is six feet enough social distance?
- Are children at greater risk than initially believed?
- How does she handle her groceries?
- Who does she trust for accurate COVID-19 information?
- What’s “normal” going to look like as we emerge from our spring hibernation?
That’s just for starters. So give your mobile or laptop a thorough cleansing, get comfortable, and have a listen. The virtual coffee is on us.
