Dr. Michael Bauer: ‘There is no question we are trending in the wrong direction and it looks like we are going to continue to do so for quite some time’


NEW YORK, NEW YORK – JULY 30: A city-operated mobile pharmacy advertises the COVID-19 vaccine in a Brooklyn neighborhood on July 30, 2021 in New York City. Due to the rapidly spreading Delta variant, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced that the city will require all city workers to be vaccinated or tested weekly for COVID-19 and the city will now pay any individual $100 to get the shot.

Dr. Michael Bauer, Medical Director at Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital, joins Anna to talk about more businesses starting to require masks or vaccination for entry, if we will see Lollapalooza become a superspreader event, how concerned he is about the rise in COVID-19 cases, why you should no longer be worried about contracting COVID-19 from surface contact, and the importance of getting vaccinated if we are going to beat the pandemic.
