COVID Stories Part 2

19 minutes

On this episode of Far From Home, I continue my series where I’m checking in with friends and colleagues around the world to get a sense of the many ways COVID-19 is affecting people and how their governments are handling the pandemic. This time we hear voices from Lithuania, South Africa, India, Ghana, and Guam.

If you have a unique perspective or experience on COVID-19 from your part of the world, I’d love to hear from you. Please drop me a line at And if you’ve missed the other installments of my COVID Stories series, you can check them out in my season 3 archive.
