COVID-19 & HIV: A Conversation with Peter Piot (S03 Ep06)
Dr. Peter Piot, a microbiologist who has fought infectious diseases all his career, contracted COVID-19 earlier this year. We discuss how this changed his outlook on pandemics preparation, and what the world’s urgent attention on COVID-19 means for another modern virus: HIV, a virus which remains far from being defeated.
Peter was a guest on the podcast in season 1 (S01 Ep04) where he and Dr. Heidi Larson talked about lessons for future epidemics. You can listen to that episode on our website or download it from your favorite podcast platform.
