Dr. Angela Rasmussen joins Daniella to talk about the “tripledemic”—the trio of COVID-19, flu, and RSV viruses on the rise in the United States. The two discuss what to expect from these health threats, protests in China over the country’s pandemic response, and ways people can keep their loved ones safe this winter. Daniella also shares her thoughts on former President Donald Trump’s dinner with Ye and white supremacist Nick Fuentes and the upcoming Georgia runoff election.

The positions of American Progress, and our policy experts, are independent, and the findings and conclusions presented are those of American Progress alone.
