In a statewide special, public radio stations from across North Carolina join together to examine the impact of Coronavirus on our health, schools and economy.
WFAE in Charlotte presents “Coronavirus in North Carolina: The Statewide Impact of COVID-19,” which includes a conversation between WFAE’s Mike Collins, host of “Charlotte Talks,” and Gov. Roy Cooper. Collins also interviews Mandy Cohen, the secretary of the state’s Department of Health and Human Services.
Host Frank Stasio speaks with Rep. Craig Horn (R-Union) who co-chairs a House working group on education and COVID-19, about the challenges of distance learning and the opportunities for growth this pandemic could force school communities to accept.
Stasio and Collins also check in with reporters from public radio stations from the mountains to the coast who paint a picture of how various communities are handling the outbreak, from frontline healthcare workers in Winston-Salem to tourism operators in Wilmington and Asheville.
