CV Central - 6/15/2020 - "Mind Over Matters - Neurology and the Public Mindset"
For the 83rd Episode, we start with three medical pieces showing how Covid has a distinctly neurological character, how it can be corrosive over time, and look at how the nervous system could represent the perfect hiding spot. As we examine that, we see the predicted rise in cases beginning to more fully manifest in the Sun Belt and early opening states, with promises that rallies and protests will add fuel to this toxic fire. The virus remains even as our regard slips, and we look at New York losing over 90% of its traffic and hotels, restaurants, and retailers alike being decimated in Boston as the example of why a second shut down may prove impossible no matter the risks ahead.
