Following up on his article for The Walrus, "Anatomy of a Pandemic," ICU doctor Kevin Patterson volunteered to answer questions sent in by readers.

In this 25-minute clip uploaded to YouTube, the magazine's senior editor Hamutal Dotan poses questions The Walrus gathered from readers on topics ranging from universal basic income, shifts to our day-to-day lives, and what medical practises could look like following isolation.

"I would like to see us continue to pull together and think hard about how our society can work better to safeguard the most vulnerable among us," says Dr. Patterson. "We can use this as a check-in moment to think about how risk and vulnerability are apportioned throughout our community."
