The Struggle To Test and Trace COVID-19

Some countries are using smartphones and facial recognition to track COVID-19 outbreaks, but here, in the US, we’re starting with simple phone calls. On this week’s episode, we take a closer look at contact tracing in California and what it might look like into the future. We also hear from San Francisco Bay Area activists about the risks of protesting during a pandemic and how to protect yourself and others.

  • Dr. George Rutherford, Director of Prevention & Public Health at University of California at San Francisco
  • Melissa Millsaps, Investigator at San Francisco City Attorney's Office
  • Jon Jocobo, Latino Task Force for COVID-19
  • Cat Brooks, Justice Teams Network and co-founder of the Anti-Police Terror Project
