COVID-19 Long-Hauler; Former Police Officer Fired For Intervening In ChokeholdPlay
COVID-19 long-haulers are a mix of older and younger patients whose symptoms last months after the infection is over, according to the Cleveland Clinic. Among them is 40-year-old New York psychiatrist Dr. Scott Krakower, who joins us to talk about his long fight with the coronavirus. And, host Robin Young speaks with Cariol Horne, a former Black police officer in Buffalo, New York, who was fired after she intervened to stop a white police officer who had placed a chokehold on a Black suspect. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's July 21, 2020, full broadcast. You can find more at hereandnow.org — and follow us on Twitter, Instagram or join the conversation on Facebook.
