The delta variant is running loose and wreaking havoc. Houston-area ERs and ICUs are full, and hospitals are erecting tents in their parking lots. And all of that is before the Texas school year begins, with unvaccinated children attending in-person classes where masks may not be required.

Today, Lisa talks with frequent guest Peter Hotez about the trajectory of the current surge, how it it's still not too late to reopen schools safely and how a Texas vaccine could save the world.

Hotez is one country’s most visible scientists during the pandemic. He co-directs the Texas Children’s Hospital Center for Vaccine Development and is dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. He’s also known for fighting anti-science disinformation on Twitter, cable news networks and elsewhere.
