Understorey: Corona Special

Wednesday 18th March / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

Understorey offers a simple Covid-19 backgrounder, to answer some basic questions about the environmental beginnings of the coronavirus, remind ourselves of the symptoms of covid-19, recount that thing about washing hands, consider fear and choose facts, and hear from the World Health Organization about what to say to young people, and generally how to be less anxious about this new normal.  We start with what a virus is, consider the Chinese wildlife trade and challenge a few myths, check in with the 45th President to hear why shutting down the White House global pandemic NSA committee wasn't his responsibility, and in the light of all this, with perhaps more to come, suggest the answer to all these questions is simple compassionate connection.
