COVID-19: No Longer A Global Emergency

On the 5th of May 2023, the WHO declared the end of the global emergency status for Covid-19. So we discussed how the pandemic has affected our lives, and what it means to come out of the other end of a global emergency. In our discussion, we had several stakeholders chip in their experiences and thoughts, and of course, we hear from you, our listeners.
