Episode 250 – The Guy Who Finds Covid In Poop (Dr. Yair Lewis)

*This episode is sponsored by Masa Israel Journey. Check them out at *

Since Delta is on the rise and we might all be put back in our cages in a few weeks time, we thought it would be a great idea to revisit our old friend, Covid. But this time, from a different angle.

The poop angle.

Dr. Yair Lewis was part of the team led by Health Ministry’s national lab for environmental virology which is testing sewage across Israel to help pinpoint high risk coronavirus infection areas.

Dr. Lewis is also the VP Medical at Navina, a medical AI startup that makes patient data accessible for care providers. He earned his MD from the Hebrew University, and is board certified in Internal Medicine. Yair also holds a PhD in molecular biology from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.

We are super excited to be joined by Dr. Yair Lewis today to talk about Covid… and poop.
