Newt’s World – Episode 192: How Iceland Crushed COVID with Science

Iceland, an island nation with a population of 395,000, has figured out how to defeat COVID-19 by using a variety of scientific approaches.  What can the United States learn from their experience?  Newt’s guest is Dr. Kári Stefánsson, M.D., founder and CEO of Iceland-based deCODE Genetics.
