I attempt to explain what we mean by a “second wave” of COVID-19, and how it is 100% driven by human behaviour.

I’ve been ignoring this podcast of late and focusing more on writing COVID-related blog posts. So I’ve decided to triple-down on the messaging and am recording both video and audio companion casts for the most read blog posts. Today, I talk about the overall plan for opening public schools safely in the era of COVID-19.
