Here's the Radio Boston rundown for April 13. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Are we in the coronavirus surge in Massachusetts? Many doctors and nurses say yes. We ask Dr. Joshua Barocas, an infectious disease physician at Boston Medical Center who teaches medicine at Boston University School of Medicine.
  • We take listener calls with Boston Mayor Marty Walsh on the city's response to the pandemic, racial inequities in coronavirus deaths, and school closures.
  • Michael Murphy, founding principal and executive director of MASS Design Group, talks designing hospitals, offices and schools after this pandemic.  
  • To mark this moment we're all in, we're occasionally checking in with Radio Boston producers working from home. We hear from Paris Alston on how she's keeping busy while social distancing.

We also broadcasted live coverage and analysis of Gov. Charlie Baker's daily coronavirus briefing. You can listen here.

This program aired on April 13, 2020.
