More than 5,000 people have died with coronavirus in Connecticut since the start of the pandemic. Deaths have been accelerating and the number of patients hospitalized with the illness is growing. But vaccines are on the horizon.

This week we look at Connecticut officials’ latest moves to counter the spread of COVID-19, and how virus response leads to disagreements in state governments around the country.

Guests:

Daniela Altimari -- state government and politics reporter at the Hartford Courant (@capitolwatch)

Robert Cotto, Jr. -- Trinity College Educational Studies lecturer (@RobertCottoJr)

Colin McEnroe -- Host of The Colin McEnroe show and a columnist at Hearst Connecticut. (@ColinMcEnroe)
