Coal Miners in the US Brace for COVID-19

SPH's Dr. Robert Cohen was quoted in EcoWatch on the effects of COVID-19 among coal miners in the United States.  He noted that Coronavirus may have severe outcomes for miners, but one challenge is that not all cases of Black Lung disease among miners have been identified.
