My comments

I always strongly recommend listening to Dr. Fauci as he has very good explanations and discusses current topics. A very knowledgeable and experienced speaker. I don’t always agree with what Fauci says, but I agree with what he says in this interview. (For example, we did not agree on a National masking mandate until he changed to supporting it very recently.) I wrote about this last week. Fauci Update Holidays, Face masks, Vaccines, Herd Immunity.

In this video, Fauci focuses on relevant understandable details of the topics. This is one of my favorite podcasts for physician continuing education and the general public. JAMA is the Journal of the American Medical Association. The podcast name is Coronavirus (COVID-19) Q&A JAMA Network. There are 1 to 5 episodes per week. Good moderator with speakers who are experts in the topic.
