Episode 31: COVID-19 Pandemic

Today is April 5, two days after CypherCon would have normally ended had it not been due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Michelle Meas, an infectious disease researcher at Berkley, joins me on this episode of the podcast to discuss all things COVID-19. We talk about what the virus is and the differences between SARS CoV-1 vs SARS CoV-2. We discuss possible treatments and vaccines for the virus as well as the the basic reproductive rate. We talk about what regular folks can do to help out – HINT: STAY AT HOME, you are making a difference. Michelle gave her first talk at CypherCon about Biological weapons, so naturally I asked her if this could be a biological weapon – tune in to find out!
