POLITICO's Pulse Check

A global pandemic. A scattered response.

Episode Notes

As Asian countries return to semi-normal life and European nations reimpose lockdown measures, the U.S. continues to reopen — despite an alarming surge in cases. POLITICO's Dan Diamond talks with Global Pulse author Carmen Paun and Dispatch's Jeremy Siegel about the differing approaches to the Covid outbreak. But first: If you could choose anywhere in the world, where would you hide out for the duration of the pandemic?
