KCPW Presents: The Front Lines of COVID-19

This week on KCPW Presents, our reporting staff collected stories from a few people on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic. The hourlong program features accounts of medical professionals, a homeless shelter worker, some community members, and a COVID-19 patient. All have, in one way or another, seen their routines upended by this crisis.
