The fight against COVID-19 is going on today in clinics and hospitals and testing sites. But that fight began in a clinical lab.

Next time on The Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll talk with a microbiologist from the Mayo Clinic about how the coronavirus was identified and how tests are being developed.

Find Dr. Pritt's blog called Creepy Dreadful Wonderful Parasites here.

We’ll also spend an Academic Minute with the origin story of the US health care system.

I’m Bob Barrett, that’s this week on The Best of Our Knowledge.
