Vocal Point-Michael Fischer

Topic: Covid-19 and the Homeless   [Recorded 3/20/20]

America has a growing homeless crisis at present. Tragically, the COVID-19 pandemic only exacerbates the homeless problem. Already, California has reported its first known COVID-19 homeless death. Recently, NY Governor says 60,000 homeless in the state could get the virus. Some experts are warning this could be an 18-month pandemic with widespread shortages. Michael Fischer is involved with the Central Park Civic Association, which reaches out to help homeless people. Michael Fischer joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss this crisis.
