Arizona resumes partnership with universities for COVID-19 models
May 7, 2020
The state department of health services today announced that it is bringing back a team of university experts providing estimates on the impact of the coronavirus. Earlier this week, the team was told it was no longer needed, and the state would rely instead on a federal model that doesn’t release its findings. The move was questioned by many health experts and made national headlines. Today, the state reversed its decision. We spoke to Rachel Leingang of the Arizona Republic.
