Journalist Guillermo Galdos takes us with her on her harrowing journey escaping from Latin America’s Covid-19 epicenter in Lima, Peru. Many have been left unemployed as a result of the pandemic and are being forced to leave the capital. Julio Frenk, president of University of Miami and former health minister of Mexico, explains the impact of coronavirus in the continent and why populism is dangerous to public health. Then our Hari Sreenivasan talks to Harvard economics professor Raj Chetty about the economic fallout of covid-19 and how his new index that assess employment and wages in the United States reveals some surprising facts. And finally, LZ Granderson, sports and culture columnist at the Los Angeles Times, digs into the politics of sport and why white athletes must take a stand against racism and police brutality.
