In a secure, air-locked chamber in the world’s largest research hospital, Dan Chertow and a half-dozen other scientists in astronaut-inspired protective gear carry out a microscopic search. They are studying the remains of people killed by Covid-19 in an effort to unlock one of the pandemic’s biggest and most disturbing mysteries.On this episode, Bloomberg Senior Editor Jason Gale joins the critical-care physician on his exhaustive hunt for the coronavirus in the bodies and brains of its victims.
