FEATURING PROF. YANEER BAR-YAM – Last year when describing the worst-case scenarios of the coronavirus pandemic, government scientists warned we could see deaths numbering between 100,000 to 240,000. That range, predicted 10 months ago, was considered a “grim projection.” Now, more than 400,000 Americans have died from the coronavirus. On his first day in office, incoming President Joe Biden has pledged to take strong action on the pandemic that includes strict mask wearing, streamlining the availability and distribution of vaccines, and a much-needed federal leadership and coordination of the pandemic response. While this represents a stark departure from the past President, scientists say it is still not nearly enough.
