This podcast connects the Covid-19 pandemic and the existing racial inequalities that have been exposed throughout the pandemic. Sridhar discusses the disproportionate effect Covid-19 has had on minority communities and the unconscious biases that have allowed this to occur. She also discusses the need to eradicate the virus, rather than living with it, after seeing new clusters of cases emerge in countries such as England, China, and South Korea.
