Dr. Céline Gounder on the Risks of Reopening Sports

This week we talk to CNN medical expert and NYU professor Dr. Celine Gounder about Covid-19. We talk to Dr. Gounder about the push to reopen sports, how that undertaking could work, and how the nation’s leadership is dealing with the pandemic. We also have some ‘Choice Words’ about the NFL’s steadfast plans to reopen this fall, as well as the Trump administration’s ineptitude. In addition, we have ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Down’ awards to the athletes that signed a letter calling for justice on behalf of Ahmaud Arbery, a black man killed by white vigilantes in Georgia, and to the people defending the Last Dance documentary. We also got a brand new Kaepernick Watch. All that and more on this week’s Edge of Sports!
