Patricia Kullberg as our Well-Read Red, reads excerpts from an article by epidemiologist Katelyn Jetelina, who finds that Covid-19 disinformation is coordinated, effective, lucrative, and cost lives. The article was originally published on a Substack Newsletter called Your Local Epidemiologist and re-published on Portside on January 20, 2023. Dr. Jetelina has a PhD in epidemiology and biostatistics and works as a public health policy analyst.
