What's it like for students who contract coronavirus at college and get sent to a special Covid-19 isolation dorm? -- Today on The Daily @nytimes, we follow Zoie Terry, a sophomore at The University of Alabama, as she goes back to school and gets corona. https://t.co/BoLF3TnDXA
In one sense, Zoie's experience with corona at the University of Alabama was typical. Her story illustrates how many schools are sending students with Covid-19 to special campus isolation dorms where they largely leave the kids to fend for themselves. https://t.co/yDc5BY5Wzl
@natashanyt @nytimes fantastic reporting, and so wonderful and brave of Zoie Terry to share her experiences. And so glad that your reporting meant that conditions in isolation were improved as a result. Still, students should never have had to suffer like this.
@natashanyt @nytimes Fan of the podcast, but mistake near end. You stated that UA had nearly 1200 faculty and staff cases in the last month, while there were really around 50. 1200 is the total number for the entire UA system since Jan 1. Including a major hospital system. https://t.co/7OviYnnwjl
