We discuss calls for the federal government to release projections of how bad the COVID-19 pandemic could get. How might projections affect public behaviour and compliance with measures to slow the spread? Then, how are different countries dealing with the virus? We're comparing strategies in India, Sweden and South Korea. And amid the pandemic, some businesses are shifting their production to find ways to contribute, such as distilleries pumping out hand sanitizer, or clothing companies making hospital smocks. We talk to companies involved in business-not-as-usual.
