21WIRE's Patrick Henningsen joins Fault Lines Radio hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan on Monday morning DC/KC drive time:

Henningsen on the current COVID-19 crisis response as governments around the world order social and economic shutdowns: "This a complete paradox. There’s ‘no money’ for mass testing to ascertain the true fatality rate…because if you don’t know the true fatality rate, you don’t know the severity of the crisis. This is a real watershed moment for modern society right here. Is government fit for purpose? Is the “cure” much more painful than the disease?"
