Our guest this morning is Dr. Joshua M. Sharfstein is Associate Dean for Public Health Practice and Training and Professor of the Practice at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He previously served as the Health Commissioner of Baltimore City and the Health Secretary of the State of Maryland.

We ask Dr. Sharfstein to dispel myths about the spread of COVID-19, and explain his ideas about how the U.S. insurance system should adapt to cover coronavirus patients. Listen to the podcast he hosts - Public Health On Call - here.
