In response to the rising global pandemic, many people are changing their daily routines and staying home to avoid spreading the virus. But what happens if your home is in a confined refugee settlement?
That’s the question Muhammad H. Zaman poses in his recent NPR opinion piece, “Refugees Are Especially Vulnerable To COVID-19. Don’t Ignore Their Needs.” For this episode, we present Esty’s interview with Dr. Zaman about refugees and coronavirus, along with a discussion of his forthcoming book, Biography of Resistance: The Epic Battle Between People and Pathogens.
Muhammad H. Zaman is a professor of biomedical engineering and international health at Boston University. He is the author of Biography of Resistance: The Epic Battle Between People and Pathogens, forthcoming from HarperCollins in April 2020.
