Baltimore journalist Baynard Woods joins Tom now.

A month ago, on March 15th, Baynard suddenly developed a fever, and he was coughing. Over the next three weeks, on social media, he chronicled his experience as his illness got worse, and as it ebbed and flowed until he was finally without COVID- 19 symptoms. 

He wrote about what the experience taught him for The Washington Post.

Baynard is a writer whose book about the Baltimore Police Department’s notorious Gun Trace Task Force will be published in July.  It’s called  "I Got a Monster: The Rise and Fall of America's Most Corrupt Police Squad.”
