Like many areas across the nation, Michigan continues to experience an increase in the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases. In this episode:
- Dr. McGraw leads off the discussion with an update regarding the status of COVID-19 pandemic, as of July 14, 2020.
- Then, we talk about the importance of referencing credible sources of information when doing your own fact finding, because it’s important to understand that there are two major types of information sources. Those that publish peer-reviewed science and admit when they make mistakes or when the science changes and print retractions and updates. And those that are, “always right,” in their opinion, and never have a reason to admit a mistake or change in the science.
- We finish off with a talk about the critical and fragile nature of continuing to mitigate our social behavior and actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Dr. McGraw shares some of his thoughts as to what might happen if the confirmed cases continue to rise. Like doc says, it’s probably best that we don’t evaluate the pandemic through a political prism.
