CV Central - 5/1/2020 - "Worldwide Issues on Food, Health, and Insecurity"
Episode 60 expands the outlook as we check in on Russia, the UK, and Canada in more depth and see how hints of a second wave are peeking out from Germany to Singapore. Global food supply chain issues are leading to greater insecurity presaging political issues. The disappearance of Kim Jong Un as President Trump hints that the Wuhan lab is to blame for Covid only ratchets the tension further, as we close with diverging narratives in America as we see other countries finding the way to come together against a shared enemy: Covid.
