In a recent piece for The Atlantic, staff writer Ed Yong explains why the coronavirus is so confusing: “This is how science actually works,” he writes. “It’s less the parade of decisive blockbuster discoveries that the press often portrays, and more a slow, erratic stumble toward ever less uncertainty.”
Yong, author of pieces like “How the Pandemic Will End” and “Our Pandemic Summer,” joined deputy editor Ross Andersen for a live conversation about how viruses and pandemics work, and what might come next.
