Here's the Radio Boston rundown for April 7. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • We take live coverage of Governor Charlie Baker's daily coronavirus briefing from the State House.  Plus, we get analysis from WBUR's Anthony Brooks. 
  • Massachusetts General Hospital says 35-40% of their COVID-19 patients are Latino, compared to 9% of the general patient population before the outbreak. In Michigan, over 40% of those who have died from COVID-19 have been African American. We talk about racial disparities in coronavirus infection and treatment.

This program aired on April 7, 2020.
