The Only Things Worth Discussing: Testing, Tracing & Therapeutics, with Adam White from AEI

Adam White is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and a law professor at George Mason University.


He wrote about how we are focusing too much on the president's role in responding to the coronavirus pandemic and that led into a discussion of how the only thing the president -- and the national press -- should really be talking about is doing the things that will help the country reemerge from its bunker: ramping up testing and tracing and therapeutics.


The degree to which we ramp up these three things will determine how much damage is done when we reopen the country.
