Balancing Human Rights With Public Welfare; Potential Ventilator Shortage

Balancing Human Rights With Public Welfare; Potential Ventilator Shortage

As COVID-19 spreads in this country, people are struggling to adjust to the new rules: stand six feet apart, work from home, don't get a haircut, home school your children. Lawrence Gostin, professor of global health law at Georgetown University, joins us to discuss the balance between personal freedom and public health. Also, some medical professionals are warning of a potential shortage of life-saving ventilators as the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the U.S. tops 35,000. Host Jeremy Hobson speaks with Dr. Lewis Kaplan.
