So why did it take these drastic events for the United States to pay attention? What is the current administration doing now to slow the rate of people infected? How will the closing of businesses large and small affect the lives of people everywhere? 

 

Shaun explores these questions and others as we delve further into this pandemic on today’s episode of The Breakdown.
