Episode 26: COVID-19 (Coronavirus) & Puerto Rico


COVID-19 has impacted our daily lives significantly. There is a lot of information out there on what the virus is and the preventative measures you can take, so make sure you are accessing information from trustworthy news sources. It is very contagious and we all need to do our part in social distancing in order to flatten the curve and slow the spread of the virus. This will also help prevent our healthcare system from being overwhelmed. To break this all down within the context of Puerto Rico, freelance journalist, Angélica Serrano-Román, joins the show. She’s been posting daily COVID-19 updates on Twitter as details are released by the Government of Puerto Rico. We recorded this on March 24 and mentioned the total cases in Puerto Rico was at 39. Now there are 64 on la Isla as of this posting.
