Travelling in a COVID-Suspended World

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Ethan Lou arrived in China to visit his ill grandfather just in time to be locked out of the care home. From there he planned to travel to several European countries, ending in Germany where he'd spent his early childhood. The COVID-19 pandemic had other plans for him. What began as a restful time visiting family and friends in far flung places ended in the pandemic nipping at his heels as he attempted to keep one step ahead of it. In his new book, "Field Notes from a Pandemic" he tells that story and examines how this world crisis is similar to others that have changed the way governments run and how people live.
