When are we getting Covid-19 vaccine data? Will concerts ever be safe again? And what’s a “Bionomy”?
We discuss all that and more on this week’s episode of “The Readout LOUD,” our first with new co-host Meg Tirrell of CNBC. First, we break down Pfizer’s anticlimactic Covid-19 vaccine announcement and discuss just when the world might expect pivotal data from its all-important trial. Then, Ashish Jha, dean of Brown University’s School of Public Health, joins us to discuss the next few months of Covid-19 response and what it’s like to be a pandemic celebrity. Finally, to commemorate STAT’s fifth anniversary, executive editor Rick Berke calls in to reminisce about the early days and field some trivia questions.
