Sociologist and physician Nicholas Christakis provides an analysis of COVID-19 and its effect on society. Also the narrator, Christakis starts with a broad overview of the current pandemic, beginning in late 2019, when the virus first appeared in China. He introduces basic epidemiological concepts, tracks the virus's progression from its origins to the United States, and examines the Trump administration's disastrous response. Christakis also offers historical context by exploring past pandemics and glimpsing into the near future when the current one ends. Christakis's narration strikes a delicate tone. He is authoritative and dispassionate when necessary but not uncaring about the human toll of pandemics. The result is a refreshingly scientific and fact-based narrative that is essential for a better understanding of the COVID-19 pandemic.
