“Outbreak: The First Response” is a new documentary that provides a firsthand and personal view of the first coronavirus outbreak in the United States, in the Seattle area. Told through the eyes of the county’s health director, a family experiencing homelessness, and a family with a relative in a nursing home, the documentary reveals the impact of this historic pandemic on cities, including the most vulnerable communities. The documentary was developed by Soledad O’Brien Productions in partnership with the de Beaumont Foundation.
“Outbreak: The First Response” will premiere on Hearst stations on June 19 and on “Matter of Fact with Soledad O’Brien” June 20–21. Visit debeaumont.org/outbreak or email the de Beaumont Foundation to learn more.
