Why did the CDC mishandle the COVID-19 pandemic response?

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) located in Atlanta, George, with a stellar international reputation responded too late and incompetently to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States.  Although many people blame the Trump administration for the failed response, a significant factor was the risk adverse and politicized CDC.. To understand what actually happened, listen to the superb New York Times podcast with Michael Lewis and read his just published book, The Premonition: A Pandemic Story.  The interview and his book should be the first requirement for anyone interested in Public Health careers, government service and public policy.

Listen to the New York Times book review podcast interview: and read the book.
