MINT TALKS - EPISODE 8
Dr. Vince Akimoto (MD), partner and physician of Guam Medical Center, joins us in the Minty Fresh studio (via stream) to address the recent descent of Guam from Pandemic Condition of Readiness (PCORE) 4 to 1 due to 105 new positive cases of Coronavirus on the island (August 20, 2020). Recorded on Friday, August 21 just before the islandwide lockdown took effect, Dr. Akimoto shares his candid thoughts on the virus, its on-going threat to our community and what he thinks will turn things around. Dr. Akimoto holds no punches on where he thinks the Government of Guam has failed and praises areas they have done well. The conversation is funny, bold and brash. We'd expect nothing less from the one and only Dr. Akimoto.
Studio Note: We apologize in advance for some audio noise caused by latency issues from the streaming service used to conduct the online interview. We've cleaned up the audio as much as we could without compromising the flow or context of the conversation. We hope to have Dr. Akimoto back for a in-studio interview at a later date.
