Back to normal without herd immunity

Every week for the past year, Axios has published a map of where COVID cases are rising and falling in the U.S. Today, we retire our map because cases are decreasing nationwide, and have been for a while now. But COVID isn’t disappearing completely. So what will this next phase of the pandemic look like?

  • Plus, the big question mark hanging over the summer Olympics.
  • And, our skeptical space reporter explains why UFOs are having a moment.

Guests: Dr. Lauren Ancel Meyers, director of the COVID-19 Modeling Consortium at the University of Texas, and Axios' Ina Fried and Miriam Kramer.
