The Road Past the Pandemic is a KYW Newsradio in Depth special presented by Independence Blue Cross. We are finally making our way out -- after 15 long months of masks and sickness, of staying away from loved ones, the country is getting vaccinated and cases are falling. So what is keeping us from breaking free for good?
Dr. Paul Offit, Director of the Vaccine Education Center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia explains the delta variant and why it’s concerning doctors, and he says we'll know by winter if we've made enough progress fighting this virus.
KYW medical editor Dr. Brian McDonough sees patients who have recovered from the virus, and are now dealing with the long term effects, and frustrations.
Looking back, what did we as a country get right fighting this virus, and where did we go wrong? Dr. Perry Halkitis, Dean of the Rutgers School of Public Health breaks down what we learned from COVID-19, and if we’re any more prepared for the next health emergency.
And Dr. Jaime Zuckerman tries to prepare us for the mental health fallout that's coming after the pandemic and gives tips on what you can do to make the coming months a little easier for yourself and your loved ones.
