What Caused the COVID-19 Pandemic, and Why Is It Hitting Some Populations Harder Than Others? 

History Professor Sheetal Chhabria in conversation with Global Islamic Studies/Government Professor Caroleen Sayej on how public health crises like the COVID-19 pandemic are never simply natural or biological phenomena, but are manufactured by government policies. Austerity policies, especially in the global south, have made large populations vulnerable to COVID-19 outbreaks, and to a future, the UN has warned, of “Famines of Biblical Proportions.”
