Flies: the Super Insect ~ Long Haul COVID
Tuesday, August 15, 2022 - Yesterday’s interview about Monarch butterflies reminded us about one of our favorite interviews from last year when we spoke with Dr. Jonathan Balcome, biologist and author of the book “Super Fly: The Unexpected Lives of the World’s Most Successful Insects.” So here is an encore of that conversation as he’s interviewed by Ashley Thornberg. ~~~ Admiral Rachel Levine is an assistant secretary for health at the US department of Health & Human Services. Her office recently reported that 7 to 23 million Americans have developed a long covid, which can last weeks, months and even leave some previously healthy individuals disabled. In an excerpt from Conversations on Health Care, Levine discusses long COVID, monkeypox, access to reproductive health, and LGBTQ issues.
