Here's the Radio Boston rundown for April 15. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
As we near 1,000 deaths in Massachusetts due to the coronavirus, we take stock:

  • We speak with Dr. Sharon Wright about the situation in our hospitals right now, and how our preparations are holding up now that the state is in the surge.

  • We hear an individual story of loss. Deborah Coogan, who lives in Newton, reflects on the life of Peter Coogan, who passed away last week from COVID-19.

  • Social distancing guidelines have inhibited the ability to mourn alongside loved ones or to process our collective losses together. We speak with a grief counselor and a hospital chaplain about what we can do to grieve together, while apart.

This program aired on April 15, 2020.
