Smart Talk: What’s driving record COVID cases in Pa.?

Also, the view of the American election from abroad

  • Scott LaMar

Pennsylvania set a record in the 24-hour period that ended Thursday at midnight with 2,900 confirmed cases of COVID-19. Nationally, there were almost 108,000 cases reported – another record.

Clearly the fall surge has arrived.

What’s driving it and what is being done to slow it down?

Also, the Pennsylvania Department of Health has a plan to distribute a COVID-19 vaccine when one is available.

WITF’s Transforming Health reporter Brett Sholtis is on Friday’s Smart Talk to provide details.

Meanwhile, what does the American election this week look like from abroad?

Lancaster County native Ben Pontz is studying in Great Britain and shares some insight on Friday’s program.
