More than two years after the world first heard about COVID-19, the pandemic continues to drag on with what often seems like no end in sight. How did we get here? How much longer will this go on? What comes next? There are so many questions and yet so much uncertainty as we head into year three of the pandemic.
One person who has been relentless in finding answers to the endless stream of questions that have arisen over the past two years is CNN’s chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta, MD. While the rest of us stockpiled toilet paper and tried to entertain children while working from home, he has been a nearly omnipresent figure on television, reporting tirelessly from his makeshift basement studio. He has conducted countless interviews with doctors, public health experts, researchers and epidemiologists about the nature of COVID-19, the race to find a vaccine and what lies ahead.
This timely and highly-anticipated conversation with Dr. Gupta is led by his brother Suneel Gupta, one of our newest Cresset advisory board members and the former CEO of the mobile health company RISE. During their discussion, Dr. Gupta shared insights from his new book, World War C, about the nature of the virus, if it will ever go away, how to live with it if it doesn’t, what activities are safe to do now, and what COVID long-haulers need to know. Dr. Gupta also addressed your burning questions about what happened, where we are now and what to expect in the years and decades to come.
