And now, it’s Midday on Ethics.

The coronavirus doesn’t only pose epidemiological challenges. It poses ethical dilemmas as well, particularly as governments grapple with containing the epidemic.

Whenever science and health news raises potential ethical concerns, we turn to Dr. Jeffrey Kahn, who joins me now in Studio A.

Dr. Kahn is the director of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics. He is one of the co-editors of The Oxford Handbook of Public Health Ethics.  And he has a recurring role in “Unnatural Selection” — a four-part series on Netflix about the possible uses of gene editing.
