CV Central - 4/28/2020 - "Mental Health, Neurology, and Covid's Troubling Origin"
Episode 57 covers two delicate areas with depth and intensity. First, we look at mental health in light of the tragic suicide of Dr. Lorna Breen from NY-Presbyterian and the many other Americans suffering. From there, we look at how and why Covid may exacerbate this directly as well as indirectly in neurological effects of this most unusual disease with neurological and cardiological impacts beyond psychology and respiratory function. The second half of the show introduces you to Shi Zhengli, Ralph Baric, and the frightful world of virological research, and the case for why Covid may be either natural or artificial, with a question left for you to consider.
