DETROIT – It has been a whole year since the first two cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in Michigan.

On Sunday’s episode of Flashpoint we took a look at what the country and world has learned throughout the year in addition to how to move forward from this point.

A new study this week found the likely reason the United States leads the world in COVID-19 deaths is because the country has the world’s most overweight population.

There was also a discussion on how stakeholders in the education crisis feel about in-person learning resuming.
