Through the eyes of a reporter who has worked in over 30 epidemic zones, including SARS in China and Ebola in West Africa, just how big a threat is the current coronavirus outbreak?

How can coronavirus be transmitted? How virulent is it, and how does it compare with SARS and MERS, and the 1918 influenza pandemic?

How has the Chinese Communist Party cover-up of information contributed to the spread of coronavirus in Wuhan and beyond?

And, what are the best precautions to avoid infection?

This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.

In this episode, we'll sit down with Pulitzer Prize-winning science writer Laurie Garrett, an expert on epidemics and currently, a columnist for Foreign Policy. She breaks down the current COVID-19 outbreak, preventative measures, and why she will be looking closely at Singapore and Hong Kong in the coming weeks to determine if this will develop into a global pandemic.
