The California Covid-19 Spike.

In mid-May and despite warnings from public health leaders, California began reopening its economy. But the state did it so fast that the move led to a new surge of Covid-19 cases. Latinos are being hit the hardest by the new outbreaks and the shortage of Covid-19 testing. A top researcher talks about the overlooked essential workers.

Guest: Dr. David Hayes-Bautista, Executive Director, Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA.

Hospital Acquired Infections. The time a patient spends in a hospital must be minimized for the sake of the patient and those who work in health care facilities. To reduce the risk of exposure to the coronavirus, hospitals need to reduce the time of the visits and improve ventilation systems. A national Latino health care advocate discusses this and other topics.

Guest: Dr. Jane Delgado, President and CEO, National Alliance for Hispanic Health, Washington DC.
