Public health agencies are doing their work to the best of their abilities but is this enough? In this episode we discuss the abilities and the limitations of public health agencies. We discuss the new CDC guidance, breakthrough cases and children hospitalized and unprotected from COVID. We also discuss the culture of reactive vs. proactive public health work, and the potential for researchers and grassroots organizations to take action where government cannot.
